How to get your picture taken during fashion week: S/S 2013 edition.

Blue hair helps.

Really, the bluer the better.

Scary animals are big.

And scary animals paired with crotchy-shorts? All the better. Especially if you want to go ahead and throw a spiky death-choker into the mix too.  In addition to which: a well-deployed, kinda contrasty, kinda matchy twinsy look is street photographer heroin.

When it doubt, go clashy.

No, really clashy.

Now we’re talking.

Attempting a Mommy’s been taking a lot of the pink pills look can be risky, but might just pay off if you low-key it with a quiet color palette.

Never underestimate the power of a good, solid pout.

And if your Chanel bag doesn’t have a lil’ buddy Chanel bag, you might as well pack your bags and go home.

  1. Absolutely hilarious. And I was thinking I was the only one who didn’t take Fashion Week so seriously.

  4. Jane says:

    Bravo! Your take on street style all would make the Fug Girls proud.

      The nerd in me makes me reply to my own message that I left an extra word in my comment. Why hasn’t the coffee kicked in yet?

  5. Jill says:

    Hilarious! I have to admit I’d kind of like to try the “Mommy’s been taking a lot of the pink pills” look…

  6. georgie says:

    love your post! so true! it´s really crazy sometimes what the people wear…

  7. daisyj says:

    Let us now give thanks for the stupidity of the young, that we may still look better than them even without the natural advantages of age.

    Also, someday their kids are going to see these and just die.

    This must be what men mean when they say we dress for other women.

    Animal t-shirts, crotch-grabbing cut-off, serious pout…Oy and Egad.

  11. Daphne says:

    I kind of like the idea of the “Mommy’s been takings a lot of pink pills.” look with glasses that were a little more toned down. I cringe when I see girls wearing crotch length shorts. It looks so cheap to me.

  12. Kamila says:

    Love this post :)

  13. Pam says:

    If they had used my legs as the model for that necklace it would have been more stubby than spiky.

  14. Debra says:

    ” ‘lil buddy Chanel bag ” made me grin like the Grinch. Your whole post was brilliant…

  15. Audrey says:

    Makes me feel less insecure about not being fashionable.

  16. RebeccaNYC says:

    I love fashion week, now that it has moved to Lincoln Center. I work at the Met and it is a real treat to take a break on the Plaza and watch the REAL show. Meanwhile, my husband (a photojournalist) is working inside the tent, so when I get home, I get to see that side, too! I have the best of both worlds, indeed!

    and yeah…ten years from now, they all will cringe, just like we do at our photos from the 70′s and 80′s….

  17. Jessica says:

    “Crotchy-shorts” cracks me up. I’ve been saying “coochie-shorts”, but your version is much more to the point.

  18. Lo says:

    so spot-on, i have the measles. ;)

  19. Corrin says:

    And I about died at “crotchy-shorts.”

  20. Allison says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
    I miss you Kim!

  21. Anna Svahn says:

    The Chanel bag with a baby Chanel bag killed me.

  22. Mrs. Ditter says:

    Looks like the trend of clothes wearing clothes has devolved into bags wearing bags.

  23. annabelle says:

    I prefer the name cootchie cutters myself. So hideous and yet so funny.
