Faux Pas: Perez the Panda

Jun 23, 2010

I was aghast when I saw this Panda-printed Lilly Pulitzer jacket in the Men’s section of the brand’s online store.  After all, what kind of man wears Panda prints?  Then I saw this.

Imagine my horror at learning it was suit.  Additionally, this is just one more reason that I’m glad I decided to make my New Year’s Resolution No More Reading Perez.  The fact that this man has a fashion blog where he instructs people on what to wear makes me want to grab my pitchfork and my torch and head out to L.A.

And speaking of gauche fashion, I’m starting to tire of every PopStar/Actress trying to out gaga Lady Gaga. Katy Perry in the blue wig, Christina Aguilera with the pleather and the odd music video, Ke$ha and whatever the heck this is.  

In fact, the shock fashion one-upsmanship has gotten so bad that Lady Gaga has resorted to wearing only underwear in public because she can no longer compete with herself.  Eventually, I think she’ll run out of fresh ideas and either a) pull a Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs or b) show up in a white tee and jeans with no makeup and really throw people for a loop.

So how long until the gag shock dressing jumps the shark?  Cause frankly, the whole extreme costume thing is starting to bore.  Leave it to Hollywood to overexpose extreme fashion until it becomes mundane.

    He really is the worst. I used to read him until I got tired of him drawing penises on people or writing “bitch” across their faces. Additionally, if you read Gawker, you know that he is always at least 45min behind on the oh so important celeb news…someone should organize a boycott.

    Too hideous for words.
