Stupid Sh*t Stylists Do in New York

New York, New York!  It's a hell of a town.  Especially if you're a model during Fashion Week.  What else could these girls possibly be thinking as they win their wage on the Big Apple's catwalks?   "Mom would be so proud!" or "Gosh, I sure hope my boyfriend's in the audience." or "I wonder if the designer will let me keep this."?

Not a chance.

In their minds' eyes, they're prodding their bookers with pitch forks and cursing that hell of a fashion capital, thanks to the stupid sh*t that stylists do in New York.

The big trend for 2013: Self-Garotting

If you were wearing this dress, you'd consider it too.

The one in the middle is seconds away from screaming "GET IT OFF ME!" - it's that itchy.

Did someone call for a welder?

Mom always said to keep your poise no matter what.  No WAY did she imagine this.

No shit, I look pale.  I just pee-ed myself, dumb-ass.

Thank gawd they gave me the lampshade ensemble. Thank gawd.

Help me out here, fellow Trekkies:  Is this Romulan or Bajoran?

Or Star Shrek?

Owwww.  This headgear's so tight its flattened my chest.

The "I'm a high flying business woman." walk is perfect for this killer Wall Street ensemble.   Perfect.

When the fuss they made about the blind hair and make-up guy went wrong, these two were sent out in their underwear.

Not what she expected when the make-up artist said the look would be "dewy".

On the bright side, maybe I could use this to start a portfolio as a male model.

Style File Followers Take Note:
1. I love the New York fashion ethos of wearable, flattering and unfussy style.  I like to think that these exceptions prove that rule.
2. At least I hope so. From what I've seen so far, the New York shows were a bit disappointing...
3. If you look closely at the pee stain on that Thom Brown dress, it appears to be a map of Africa.
4. Check out the purple and orange suede T-straps on the bearded lady.  Do you see how poorly they're made? Can someone please tell me what's good about this outfit? I can't work it out. At all.
5. Yet someone must be funding Creatures of the Wind and A Detacher.  (I needed to breathe into a paper bag when I realised that.)
6. All photos flagrantly 'borrowed' from Style.com.

  3. You're still looking pretty hot. Better than any of those models. Mind you, they did put themselves at a bit of a disadvantage!
