GOLDEN GLOBES MURDERS HAUTE COUTURE!


Janelle Monae "collaborates" with Armani for a custom Golden Globes gown?! 

2014-2015 Armani Privé Collection


Like knives to my heart, master designer of fashion art, has be transformed into a master seamstress.
As a long time lover of Armani Privé, one can immediately spot the use of identical textiles from his 2014-2015 Fall Collection, minus the haute couture.


Beyond the use of the innovative textiles, nothing else remains of "Armani ". 
Clearly this dress is more accurately a Janelle Monae.



Jessica Biel in Elie Saab minus the accessories. 
The plunging neckline minus the ornate choker  and matching cuffs, left me feeling a large chunk of Elie Saab's vision was deleted. 
The dress simply does not make sense without the accessories that mimics and flirts with embroidered flowers on the dress. 



The problem with the merger of "Hollywood" and "fashion" is the need to be relatable.
 Renowned stylists will edit or dumb-ify fashion masterpieces, in order to be like-able. 
The end result, is a display of glorified mediocrity, and rather ordinary fashion.
