Celebrity Satin

A couple of weeks ago I was watching Project Runway and cackling when Michael Kors proclaimed, "Nobody should wear tight satin!" I agree. In fact, I think there are generally MUCH BETTER FABRIC CHOICES AVAILABLE besides satin. Sometimes it looks so cheap and shiny, and it puckers and wrinkles in the most unfortunate places! And I hate how it looks around the belly area, particularly if the satin is tight. But that is just me.

Full disclosure: when I was about seven years old I BEGGED AND BEGGED AND BEGGED my parents to get me satin sheets and a satin comforter for Christmas. I did this year after year, and my requests were ignored. Perhaps that was a good thing.

satin is so hard to wear well - you have to have just a ridiculous body to look good in it (selma Hayek). it makes people look so much wider than they really are - erika christensen, i'm looking at you. i don't know why stylists let their clients go out in it. it looks so bridesmaidy...

I effing love Project Runway!

The WORST thing about a fitted satin anything is they sit once, then have those horrid wrinkles calling attention to their mid-section. It just looks sloppy and awful. Hate it.

When I was kid I wanted a satin bomber jacket. I thought I'd look really alluring and tough. My mom refused and said I'd look cheap. My mom is always right!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

You're just so right about satin not lying in a flattering way on most bodies. It's just not good!

Felicia said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA---That drag queen in the middle on the stool??? That made my day!! And I always look forward to things that fly out of that cunty queen Michael Kors' mouth on PR!

Love your selection of pictures which only proves that you are SOOOOOOO right.
I like satin on CERTAIN items-
However people should be fined for wearing tight satin.
Armit stains on satin are awhhhg (picture me throwing up) and under boon sweat marks (google Mariah) ...
Also satin has the ability of emphasizing where the belly button is and each and every one of the celullite one has.

meant UNDER BOOBS

Oh man this brings back memories. Not something I'd beam about. But satin bedsheets are on a different tangent!

Confession: I heard satin pillow cases prevents wrinkles. It makes me almost want to go out and get some. Almost.

When I was in jr. high I wanted a satin jacket with matching hat. My friends and I were all going to get them matching, like the Pink Ladies in Grease, but we didn't have any money, so it never happened.

We were both denied our due satin!!

Agree wholeheartedly (thought I reserve the right to frequently violate). Fupa-tastic!

A fabric that makes Nicole Kidman look chubby?!? Mmmmh, better not.

itsCatherine said...

satin is sabotage. these are the worst pictures of each celebrity i've seen.

Awful...except for the drag queen! A drag queen in satin is the bomb!

Who would expect Amber Rose to pull it off so much better than so many others. I guess she has that drag queen flair. I keep thinking I need a satin pillowcase to sleep on...it's supposed to be better for your hair and skin!

Emily said...

I laughed when Michael Kors said that too. His comments are always my favorite! These satin dresses are really horrendous. Ew.

May the force be with you.
