Mullets went out with a bang in the nineties. (And with good reason). Why are fashion designers suddenly trying to bring them back?
Is the economy so bad we can’t afford those full-length gowns anymore?
Like this. Really? Don’t get me wrong – I love Beyonce, but what IS this? When the train of your dress has more coverage than your dress in its entirety, you can pretty much chalk that outfit up to a loss. In my most humble opinion, of course.
I do have to say, with her mom Tina Knowles as her stylist, she usually does a bang up job of looking effortlessly stunning. But I’m not sure I really agree with this latest decision, Tina. You know better. My mother would never let me leave the house like that, and she’s a far cry from a stylist.
In mom’s defense, I should also point out that I’m an ever farther cry from Beyonce. So there’s that.
Thanks to Balmain, I did manage to find one mullet dress in this crazy trainwreck of a trend that I enjoy. Something about the lines and the texture of this dress that make me absolutely love it. Hell, I might even wear it.
Okay, scratch that. If somehow, by the grace of God, I could own this dress, I would probably wear it once a week. Let’s be honest here. Hope the sandals come with.
Despite Balmain somehow making the trend work with this dress, I sincerely hope this whole fad disappears as quickly as it surfaced.
And if I ever, EVER see a dress remnant of the flock of seagulls disaster, I’m calling it quits.
