Even More Stupid Sh*t Stylists Do

They've been at it again.

While I spent July travelling, writing about travelling and fighting with Sam, those crafty stylists were busy getting all creative on us, doing what they could to make their mark at the Fall 2012 Couture shows. The net effect included a fair amount of face and hair net (also seen at Gaultier) and the use of freakish make-up and accessories that really should be banned but that we put up with in the name of freedom of expression and democracy, etc.

In the name of freedom of expression and democracy, etc., I hearby exercise my right to say that stylists sure do some stupid sh*t.

I dare you to knock this dangly thing off my hair phallus, bitch.

The earring in her hair was a last minute effort to distract the press from the dress.

She would have taken the hat off, had her hands not been transmuted into claws.

My booker said it would be like Doctor Zhivago.  She's so dead.

Oh crap.  I think a bug just got caught in my facenet.

Damn, that gel is sticky.

Silence of the abused models.

An invisible butterfly just landed on her nose?

What the fuck do you mean, my lipstick doesn't go with my dress?!

Green with envy at the models working the less 'avant garde' shows.

Ugh - another duff outfit.  At least nobody recognises me from the Alexis Mabille show.

Style File Followers Take Note:
1. Oh dear.  The stupid sh*t stylists do is usually offset by the cool stuff designers too.  Not this time.
2. If an earring is worn in the hair, does that make it a hairring? Or a herring? Or just plain fishy.
3. I take back point 1. With the exception of the dress/trouser combos, at least the Dior collection was beautiful and wearable.  But I'd stay well away from their cosmetics this season if I were you.
4. All images blatantly borrowed from
5. Scarily enough, that whole butterfly thing seems to be on trend.  Check out Neiman Marcus' online ad campaign:
