Here's one Worst-Dressed mention I agree with:

MSN fingered this vile gown on its Emmys loser-list. They dubbed this dress "Barack Bottom."

Uh, Quite.

Who's the celebutard in that picture? Just so I know who to boycott.

Christina LMT said...


I might use it as an apron when I'm cooking something especially messy, but as an actual item of clothing? I think NOT.

Tacky. I wouldn't let my dog sleep on it.... Maybe not. After I washed it a few dozen times with bleach, maybe I could stand to look at it.

Must be a C or D list celebrity who will not be donating at a higher tax bracket.

Doesn't dress making require actual sewing anymore these days?

This looks exactly like the cheap, tacky cotton print fabrics they sell at Walmart, right down to the selvage edges.

I guess someone just bought a bunch of fabric, wrapped themselves in it, and pinned it in place using safety pins.

orange-neck - some former soap opera star.

Christina - I would wear it for scrubbing toilets.

Old NFO - vile!

Jon - yes - utterly repugnant.

Hunter - def D-tier.

Mauser*Girl - Apparently not. Just wrap up in any old tea towel, darling. Agreed - this was definitely a case of the dress wearing the woman, and not vice-versa. Yuck.

No, no, no. You don't understand. This is high fashion in West Africa, selvedge edges included. We are asserting our African-ness. And it's un-American to disagree with us. All it lacks is heavy starch, the scent of moth balls, and a head tie with a portrait of Oprah.
BUT, my son-in-law is not allowed to wear his kilt to the office on casual Friday.....
Could this country get any more hypocritically divisive?
Elsewhere PhD.

Just found your blog and this post made me a believer! You rock - guns and all :) Yes. Yes yes yes.

God help me if I ever saw someone in public wearing this. I might spontaneously combust and stain it or something. Aw.
