You know all those times when you’re like, “Gee, I wish I had some pasty white people leg tights?” No? You don’t want those? Well, too bad, because Maison Martin Margiela has fashioned the perfect pair of skin-crawlingly Caucasian-flavored tights. These bad boys also include a rather menacing black stripe right across the thighs. Do you feel uncomfortable yet? How about when I tell you they originally retailed for more than $700? How about now? [LN-CC]
Look at this model. It’s like she’s saying, “I’m a sad, sexy clown! I’m a pouty mime!” Plus, she’s got these stupid platform shoes-cum-skis on her feet. And yes, the models were required to somehow get down the runway in these monsters. Gianni Molaro — the wizard behind these looks — exhibited his collection as part of the Alta Moda Alta Roma fashion week, aimed at giving young and upcoming designers exposure.
We really couldn’t get over these weirdo ski shoes, so we’ve collected a bunch of other shots from the collection, after the jump.

These Celine mink heels are from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection — and they are giving me the major creeps. Designed, apparently, out of Muppets the designers trapped and killed, these heels come in an array of blinding hues. Celine designer Phebe Philo doesn’t usually go so extremely, crazily wrong, but these heels are offensive for animal lovers, Muppet fans, and people with any sense of taste.
Meggings. We’ve written about them before, but I felt the need to dredge up the awful man-leggings trend, because I’ve just received an email from meggings proponents B-Skinz, showing me the lastest and greatest in meggings technology: Behold these fugly-ass rainbow meggings
Or, okay, as they’re technically called “psychedelic jungle meggings.” Keep reading »
How gross is this Asra Tulle Midi Dress, sold at Anthropologie? First off, it’s only a sheer over-layer — it’s not even a full-on dress (unless you are really, extremely daring). Second, those weird faux tulle roses are making me want to gag. There is absolutely no proper application of those things, unless you’re talking on your grandma’s sofa throw. And worst of all? This dress, which requires you wear another dress under it — costs $800. [Anthropologie]

Back in the mid-’80s, Apple computers thought it would capitalize on its popularity by releasing a line of super cool clothing, including sweartshirts, shorts, belts, hats and — of course — turtlenecks. Now, almost 20 years later, these looks are hopelessly dated and hilarious. Check out more from the extra special Apple collection after the jump! Keep reading »
Rarely does TopShop do anything egregiously wrong — on the women’s side of its operation, at least. But on the men’s side? Well, there’s a reason why TopMan is lagging far behind its female counterpart in sales and hype. You can see what I mean by taking a look at TopMan’s latest offerings — a smattering of ’80s-inspired jam shorts and football tops styled in the most incomprehensible ways. It’s not simply that the clothes themselves are unfortunate — it’s that TopMan seems to think that its clients want to model themselves after nerdy gradeschoolers. As far as I can tell, that’s not a recipe for success. But go ahead, take a look for yourself and tell us what you think.
If style is cyclical (Is it? I don’t know, I made that up), Rihanna is back to being in the pre-makeover stage of her sartorial evolution. What in the holy hell is she wearing? I can see her nipples through her bra. A bra she is wearing as a top, by the way. Is this what having kajillions of dollars and a stylist on call buys you these days? More celebs in see-through clothing, after the jump… [Photo: Fame/Flynet] Keep reading »
Well, hello there, Heather Morris, where are you off to? That pink flutter-sleeved T suggests the mall. The bustier-esque tank on top of it reminds me of the underage goth club I used to frequent in high school. The mullet-hemmed skirt would have fit right in a few weeks ago at Coachella? And the shoes? Those should head straight to the trash. Don’t even get me started on the socks. Was it laundry day and you picked from what was clean in your closet? Next time, borrow something from Lea Michele.
