More Stupid Sh*t Stylists Do

Someone once asked me what my strongest personal characteristic was.  I said resilience.  But humour and good taste are close runners up.  Granted, those last two are highly subjective.  They’re also mutually exclusive, since my humour is rarely in good taste.  I nonetheless resiliently strive to make people laugh - just not at what I’m wearing.

Some fashion stylists (who make their livings as arbiters of good taste) seem to have a wicked sense of humour, which they sometimes choose to demonstrate in lieu of style or taste.  Or perhaps they're just bitterly resentful of the beauties on the catwalk.  "You think you're so pretty; wear this."

Back by popular demand, here's more stupid sh*t stylists do:

So sad.  That mascara wasn't waterproof after all.

The stylist clapped his hands and cooed "Imagine a Sumo Wrestler crossed with an American football player!"
And someone actually replied "You're hired."

Daphne G's new shades?

What she can't see can't hurt her:  Prickly in pink.

Style File Followers Take Note:
1. The stylist for A Detacher could have been woman.  The person who hired her (or him) could have been drunk.
2. Some of those pastel plastic wigs seem to have transmuted into actual red carpet hairstyles (think Katy Perry & Kelly Osbourne and sigh)
3. Did The Girl with Dragon Tattoo influence all those bleached eyebrows?  I wonder.
4. Were the model's eyebrows in the Alexander McQueen show bleached too?  We'll never know.
