Somebody alert the US Department of Retro stat!
Best quote in this article: ' “A lot of people say grunge killed makeup”
says François Nars.'
They do? There are people in the world having a conversation about grunge music's effect on the colored liquid you put on your face? I'm endlessly amazed at the shallowness of fashion-people. And I'm throwing out my Maybelline. No one told me that 'Nevermind' marked the end of my mascara days...
"Button up in a little teenage spirit with this cozy flannel top . . ."
If your job is to help sell make-up it is. François Nars is the guy who started NARS cosmetics.
I'll take grunge-retro over the HEINOUS '80s retro that's all over Cap Hill. Seriously: someone needs to tell these hot 20-year-olds that it's hard for us geriatrics to lecherously ogle them when they're wearing such ugly clothing.
i'd prefer to ogle a hottie in retro 80s spandex then ogle a hottie in retro 90s flanel.
eewwwww, fuckin' ewwwww!!
Yes, I agree. Vote no on grunge and flannel. And no, the "real thing" was not better than the Madison Avenue ripoff version.
Please, anything that will get rid of the backward-goddam-ball-cap, gigantic-pants-with-crotch-at-the-knees and T-shirt-down-to-midthigh look is OK by me. I was following a kid down the hall today whose jeans crotch was so low that he was walking with a permanent, knock-kneed, pigeontoed kind of prance - really so NOT an attractive movement. The only advantage to that style of dressing is that it's easy to taunt them and get away clean - just give their giant pants a quick yank and run away while they're tripping over them.
I see some terrific giant pants episodes here across the street from Garfield High. It really is hard to walk in those things. Clutching the crotch like you have to pee helps some, but it's still difficult to move, especially in the giant unlaced clown shoes.
