Would YOU wear this dress??

From the back, the dress actually looks very regal and is offset beautifully by Selita Ebanks gorgeous skin tone.  Therefore, you will be totally amazed when you see the front view … Seriously!!!!  I just want to quickly quote someone standing beside me looking at a pic of this dress right now, “Why not just wear a sign look at me!”  How can this possibly have ever been considered as a fashionable choice of evening wear by Selita or her stylist?  This looks so tacky.  It also looks like she can’t move very well and let’s be honest if she were to turn too quickly to the right, she’d be exposing parts of her body that are supposed to be kept discrete!

I know sheer panels are a BIG trend this season and we have already seen Gwyneth Paltrow in a very revealing similar style of dress before which divided the critics.

However, this white dress worn by Selita takes sheer fabric to a whole new level which to be frank just looks cheap.  She also is wearing far too much make up which is making her look really harsh in the face.  All in all this look bombs and the “Legendary Phoenix” from Kanye West’s film, Runaway unfortunately is “legendary” in this get up BUT for ALL the wrong reasons!

How do we feel about men who like fashion?

Love or hate his music, love or hate his style, you have to hand it to Kanye West.  I think it’s actually refreshing to see a guy who is interested in fashion!  Why shouldn’t men take a more avid interest in their appearance?  Surely this is to be admired.

Take David Beckham as another example. The guy could wear a plastic bag and still make it look good!  And no one does a penguin suit better than Daniel Craig.

I have to say I’m not a fan of the Russell Brand or One Direction band members and their skinny jeans look but I do like to see a man who is confident and who wants to look good!  Let’s be honest, we don’t ever want to compete with a man for time in the bathroom or in front of the mirror but certainly it is nice when a guy spends time getting ready and puts effort into his clothes.

When I think about it  …. us ladies can sometimes take all day to get ready for a date between time for a spray tan, nail and hair appointments, shopping for the “perfect outfit”, shaving our bodies within an inch of our lives, make up application, the list goes on and on ….  How disappointing that after hours and hours of preparation to look as fabulous as we possibly can, our date sprays some deodorant, splashes his face with water and throws on a clean t-shirt and jeans whilst shouting up the stairs, “Come on love, it’s time we were going!”.

As as I said before, I wouldn’t like my man to take more time getting ready than me or spending more hours down the high street but at the same time, a little effort never hurt anyone!  I don’t think my husband will be donning a fur edged coat aka Kanye West in the photo above but in his Vivienne Westwood shirt and Hugo Boss jeans, he’s a style icon to me!
