one: to be very honest, i'm not totally pleased with the latest mcqueen collection.
don't get me wrong, it's awesome, it's perfection, i love it, i covet it...
but what i feel is that mcqueen was not all about what we see now...
he was not all about elaborate embelishments. i think he was all about making
your jaws drop. he was all about a story... always a different story...
remember the "they shoot horses don't they" show?
or the graffiti thingie... the sprayed on set gowns?
i don't know, but i just feel that sarah does not think with the head of mcqueen
but rather resorts to things he had done before... i might be totally wrong, tho...
also, her hands might be tied, as well... so i really don't want to be harsh on her
because she really does an amazing job, but this is just what i feel.
two: so while i'm at kinda criticizing, i also gotta tell you that i dislike the rodarte
ss12 collection. i can't really grasp the craze about rodarte... sure there are a few
pieces i like (like the two-tone sweaters), but who's gonna wear those dresses?
i have no idea whether the amateurish-looking cuts are on purpose or that's just
what they can do.
okay, so who am i to criticize other people that are doing creative work
while i'm not... but still... also, i just had to check some reviews, and they decided
to stand behind me on this... look:
"The fifties prom dress silhouettes—nipped at the waist, with all the action at the
shoulders and the flaring hems—seem pitched so resolutely in the past..."
this is from style.com... but wwd made a similar review.
so there, i said it.
three: i don't really understand why some people change their tumblrs
as often as i change my underwear... what is that about tumblr?
hopefully, you didn't read all of this. :P
