My astrologer told me there would be a planetary alignment to out align anything seen since this time last century...................
TRANSLATION: NOT SINCE LAST YEARS CFDA AWARDS!!!!!!! A convergence; a TOTAL eclipse of COMMON SENSE, of GOOD TASTE, of FAIR PLAY,a TOTAL ECLIPSE of the HEART.
What the hell am I getting at, you Ask?
I'm talking about all the other GIFTED and PRESS obsessed designers who were NOT nominated for those RANDOM, COVETTED awards.
I like lists, so I'll list 'em and we'll put our heads together and try to figure out what might have gone WRONG...or RIGHT. depending on your particular VIEW.
MARCHESSA? Maybe the Duchess doesn't like Harvey, Duke of Weinstein and Malibu.
At HALSTON, she was seen across the CATWALK audibly and noticibly wincing at his louder than whispered remarks on the outcome of the SUPER BOWL. So he's rich, powerful in many more arenas than HRH. Maybe being the chubby hubby of one of Marchessas' designers... maybe because those girls dressed more RED CARPET babes than any other house this year.Possibly because by MARRIAGE they are the proud owners of the NEW Halston. Could be because HALSTON doesn't give a cat's claw about what any rag thinks of it's collection.....
Maybe that's why no nomination was granted. What do you ALL think? I have to say, theirs' were some of the loveliest gowns floating down that RAGGED RUG. OK, so each and every one was 1 shouldered with a bit of unnecessary SCHMALTZ tacked to the front... they still looked good, even had a bit of CHIC !!!!!
They certainly aren't any better or worse than Rodarte, ProenzaSchouler,Marc,blah blah blah.....
Makes you wonder why HALSTON was left out of that HEADY BREW. It's NEW-ish and was certainly hyped to death. The anticipation alone was enough to grant a nomination.
Why not Z.IDDY BIDDY ( zac posen) ? God knows enough has been printed about
mini DIDDY iddy biddy Z.
How about Lanvin/Alber Elbaz? He's extremely talented. From the SUBLIME to the ludicrous in one single bound. One moment clothes which are enough to make you want to dress, to dresses which fit and flatter only portly figures, not to mention menswear that looks exactly the same as his vague personal wardrobe. He deserves a prize .....
Why not DONATELLA? or ISAAAAC or that POWERHOUSE of STYLE , CYNTHIA ROWLEY?
Maybe TINSLEY MORTIMER should get BEST WOULD-BE DESIGNER!
I think LARS NILLSON deserves the FASTEST EXITS in the SHORTEST TIME AWARD.
Now that takes a talent that far out classes all of the above mentioned HOME SEWERS.
Rule Fairly......not Favoritively.
