Talent in one arena does not automatically confer genius in another.
Take, for example, Steve Nash (the NBA superstar, two-time MVP from the Phoenix Suns) and his experiment into the world of menswear. Observe his toothy, Jack the Ripper-esque grin. Yes, he has a good crossover dribble. No, he does not make a suit I would wear:
- Steve Nash, Jack the Ripper Smile, Dracula Collar
Notice Steve’s popped collar, ala Dracula. Or Sesame Street. (I love to count!)
Staying with the vampy theme, we have Victoria Beckham (in one of her creations.) A mere Google search of fashion victims revealed her vampireness. Mrs. David Beckham:
- Victoria Beckham, Undercover or Overt Vampire?
Back to the fellas. Kevin Federline was married to Britney Spears for two heartbeats a presidential administration ago. He had this to say about kids’ jeans:
“It’s a really tough business, I’m trying to take it seriously and make a quality product for kids but not have parents pay like $500 or something ridiculous for a pair of jeans,” the ex-Mr. Britney Spears told WWD.
Now, let’s take a look at K-Fed, the fashion plate. Wait, that clown is designing clothes? Hell no:
- Kevin Federline, K-Fed Up with high prices on kids’ jeans
What discussion of clothing is complete without at least one swipe at Gaga and her Frankenstein machinations:
- Lady Gaga, fashion victim. Blog blog fashion baby, work that. . .
We will end with the 90s superstar Liam Gallagher of Oasis and his wooly self-designed jacket. Do I need to add snark or is it sewn into every stitch?
- Liam Gallagher, Oasis, Fashion Roadkill
Truly, I am in the Navy where my clothes are pre-selected for maximum wearing benefit. So perhaps, I have no place pointing and laughing. But it is fun, no?
