Why Did You Wear That: Stopping Short

celebrities crop topsThis past weekend, three of Tinsletown’s loveliest ladies were all seen sporting a little bit of bare midriff while walking the red (err… orange?) carpet.  This bit of belly is different from the crop tops of a couple summers past.  It’s not so much belly button as it is rib cage.  It’s the teeniest little peek-a-boo of skin that is both sexy and playful.  It’s less Christina Aguilera Genie in a Bottle and a bit more Gidget Goes Hawaiian.  And for anyone who was ever a bit self conscious about showing some torso, don’t worry.  This is much more wearable and will keep that fearsome FUPA under wraps.

While some are referring to these as “bralettes” that’s not quite the right term.  (Did I not already school you in bralettes?).  I would consider these to be cropped bustier tops.  You’ll have much more luck when searching using those terms.  The trick to this look is pairing your teeny top with a high waisted skirt or slacks.  That way your outfit will read “le petite coquette” rather than “big dirty whore.”

Why Did You Wear That: Christina Aguilera

By |November 19th, 2010|Celebrity Style|

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love Christina Aguilera. I have loved that woman since the moment she popped out of her genie bottle back in 1999! I was Team Christina through and through. She could do no wrong in my book. Not even when she decided to get a bit “dirrty.”

So, it pains me more than you can imagine to have to ask, “What the HELL happened to her?” I know that Xtina has been going through some rough times in her personal life, but didn’t she get the memo? Looking GOOD is the best revenge. And while her love life may be sucking, her career is still on fi-yah. She is set to star in Burlesque and she just got her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Needless to say, that’s a lot of red carpet appearances. Well, lately, she looks like my dog has been styling her… with his tongue (although that’s an insult to my dog).

How can such a pretty girl let herself look like this? Did Jordan Bratman take all the mirrors with him in the split?

The premiere of Burlesque should have been her time to shine…. however, she looks like a big green head of lettuce. Sad lettuce. She would have been better off pulling from the costume department like Cher.

Ugh. Christina… COME ON! Pull. It. Together.

Let’s just take a stroll down memory lane…

Despite everything, you bet your ass I will be in line to see Burlesque on November 24th.



Las Vegas, What Are YOU Wearing?

By |December 9th, 2008|Why Did You Wear That?|

Okay, so I know that Vegas is a lotta flash and a lotta cash… but I am having a really difficult time digesting this. Seriously, my stomach is churning. I think I may have nightmares after what I’ve just witnessed… Buckle up. It’s gonna be a rough one.

Okay, so I’m a little confused here. Who’s who? I don’t think your boyfriend’s hair should ever be longer than yours. The pixie cut is difficult enough to pull off, you don’t need your boyfriend competing with you!

Um, do you think she knows that her bra is hanging out? Oh… I get it. That’s part of her “outfit”! Clever little devil!

OMG. Sadly, this must be a Vegas TREND! This is so weird to me. We have spent years trying to figure out how to try and HIDE our bra straps and now we’re just popping our bras right out the front our tops? (more…)
