Seeing red


confession - the red carpet bores me.

if/when you pay attention to what is worn on the red carpet, are you hoping to find inspiration or humor?

What do you wear when you're sick?

Trust me, when you've fully recovered, you'll think that question is hilarious.

i hope you feel better too!

the red carpet = escapism and eye candy. not even inspiration, really. more like refined sugar.

I always watch the red carpet part of the Golden Globes and Oscars, but mostly it's a big stylist-approved yawn. I definitely don't look there for inspiration; I agree with a., it's more like a junk food guilty pleasure.

a. "refined sugar" I love that! Like Candid Cool, I don't pay attention, but if I did, I agree, it would not be for inspiration at all - yet from what I understand, those clothes do effect sales/styles/trends. For whom I'm not sure. Brides?

Red carpet? Soooo safe and thus boring.

editor said...

alexandra - but does it bore you as a source of inspiration, or as a source of amusement?

i wonder... if i were ever in a position to be on the red carpet (your suspension of disbelief required now), would i go for brazen or pretty...

Hey, hope you're feeling better...whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger!

As for the red carpet, I don't deny that I do enjoy looking through such images, because although it's usually deadly boring, sometimes you do see someone put on a dress that looked good on a supermodel in a show, but amazing and alive on a person who's made it her own - I think Charlotte Gainsbourg wears Balenciaga well, for instance.

But that's about it.

Strangely, I don't know the answer to that question. Maybe it's option c, "because I don't have anything better to do with my life"?

Inspiration. Viz, Nicole Kidman in chartreuse Christian Dior.
