When I read through my archives, I ask myself, is it bad that I’ve barely evolved? Or is it good that I stand by the things I believe in, like the fact that I loathe, loathe, loathe celebrity fashion designers. Here’s a fun fashion list of my 5 least favourite. And even though this post was originally published in December 2012, it is still quite relevant today.
The 5 Worst Celebrities Who Meddled in Fashion
My long-time readers will know that I despise celebrities who meddle in the fashion industry. For some ridiculous reason, people seem to think that anyone can be a fashion designer, and that having a few nice frocks means they can design a clothing collection. Let me clarify that this is not true. You do actually need a design education to design clothes. Some fashion designers come from backgrounds such as textiles, graphic design, or architecture, which is fine as those are transferable skills. Behaving like an idiot on a reality TV show, or singing in a crappy girls band does not suddenly grant you the ability to compete with Karl Lagerfeld or Alber Elbaz.
Here is my list of the worst celebrities who have “decided” to do fashion. If these five women dropped off the face of the earth, perhaps the fashion industry could regain some its lost credibility. (This is list is in no particular order, but I did start with my least favourite.)
1. Victoria Beckham. If I have to hear one more time about how she “designs” her collections, which are essentially unimaginative copies of Roland Mouret and other top brands, I will be sick. This is the woman who claims she dresses “sexy in a virginal way.” She is an idiot. That is all.
3. Kim Kardashian. Please go away. And take “Dash” with you. Their parents must be so embarrassed, imagine if all your daughters let their boobs spill out of every outfit and were famous for nothing. I’d disown any children like that.
