Now that Sarah Burton has taken over the duties as creative director of Alexander McQueen, she’s been on a never ending climb up in the ranks as a designer. Since 1997, she’s More »
All celebrities fear the ever-lingering risk of being named as the ‘worst-dressed’ in their industry for that year. It’s very harsh and it can do terrible things for some people who may not have intended to attract that much attention, but we just have to put up with it. Nobody wants to look as though they don’t know how to dress themselves, especially when they’re constantly in the public’s eye. It’s extremely frustrating too as those who are often named the worst are those who put in a lot of effort, so are treading on thin ice lines when they step out in risky outfits. However, nobody was expecting what recently happened, when Kim Kardashian made the announcement that she views herself as the worst-dressed.
After posting a picture of herself wearing a cropped yellow jacket, she captioned the picture explaining: “I am putting myself on the worst dress list for this outfit! I wanted a little color while I’m living in Miami, so my intentions were good, but the cut isn’t for me! You definitely need to be taller and thinner to pull this jacket style off!” The honesty is appreciated, it seems, but you can’t help but wonder if this is a good move or if it isn’t. You never know how the public may receive it, or if they even buy into the fact that she’s putting herself down in the way that she is.
If you’re in a position such as Kim K’s the last thing you want to do, surely, is to make people look at you a little differently. It doesn’t really mke sense that she’s tainting peoples’ views of her in this way, when (as we think) she’s (at the same time) attempting to prove that she’s actually very capable designer and really knows what girls all around the world want in their wardrobes. Look at it in any different way that you want to, but it doesn’t seem to have knocked things off course for her thus far, so we’ll just have to sit out and wait to see how things develop and whether she will eventually turn this statement around and decide that she’s actually one of the best-dressed from the A-list, after all.
