If there is one thing I cannot stand (today) it is people sneering at what other people are wearing. I really, I mean I REALLY hate it.
Do you remember when Bjork wore a swan dress
to the Oscars in 2001,
and got torn
apart by the Fashion police? I can still remember the
sneering and the sounds of snarling from fashion hacks everywhere. The
only way the comments could have been more barbed was if she had gone to
the river and caught the bloody thing herself. It was that hated. (could
you imagine if Twitter had been around then? Top trending topic for
DAYS I imagine? oooooh could you imagine the hashtags?)
personally, I think she looked great. It isn't really me I grant
you, but it is very Bjork. it suited her style and personality.
that is the problem with fashion,
Fashion dictates a
trend, but doesn't cater for individual style.

Fashion for me is ALL about individual taste
and style, not following
the latest "bang-on-trend" erm, trend. Fashion is about taking risks,
and not giving a DAMN about what anyone else thinks.
don't want to be told that plaid is so this season dahhhhling or be
sneered at for wearing a blazer which is by the wrong designer (chances
are it would be New Look or Matalan) Skinny Jeans are so 2011? Big
deal, tell it to someone who actually cares.
sorry for people who are slaves to fashion, it must be exhausting
constantly keeping up with trends or living in fear of finally being
found out (Yep Alexa Chung, I'm looking at you love)
who is to say that the people being sneered at on the red carpet for
wearing the wrong colour, the wrong cut, or just wearing the wrong
thing aren't the ones who are actually ahead of the trend?
us remember, it wasn't so long ago that people were being absolutely
slaughtered in print for being papped wearing something they had been
seen wearing BEFORE!!! (Oh the shame) Now you put it away for a
couple of years, call it VINTAGE and you are a FASHION QUEEN.
shouldn't dictate what you wear, fashion should be FUN, fashion
should be about taking risks, wearing what you love and enjoying it.
will NEVER catch me sneering at someones outfit. Who am I to judge
what someone else is wearing, if it makes them feel good, if THEY are
happy to wear it and feel confident wearing it, then more power to them.

What do you
think about fashion? Are you a dedicated follower? Or would
you rather SET the trend than follow it?
