We know you Uglies are all about dressing in dark, moody pieces that are more sexy than saccharine and tough than tinsely, but perhaps it’s time to turn over a new leaf?
Sonia Rykiel’s Paris show brought some much needed brevity to the somber sartorial circus with whimsical dresses, cheeky tops, and smiles and giggles as the most fashionable accessory to march down the catwalk. Her feathered yellow thing, reminiscent of Big Bird, brought a huge smile to my face—and while I love cooing (Alexander Wang) and gasping (Hussein Chalayan) during shows, there’s something to be said about fashion that gives you pure, unadulterated, giddy joy.
So whether you don the Count’s cheeky cape, squeeze into a Grover-suit or wear your letters on your chest, make sure you put down your black leather and chains once in a while and breathe. Have some fun!
