You ever heard the saying “money can’t buy you taste?” I often was reminded of that as I watched Mary J. Blige come up in the game. As she became more and more famous, it was clear that her fashion sense couldn’t keep up. Today, Ms. Blige has found her stride when it comes to her style (hey, she’s been in the game nearly 20 years so she has little excuse).
These days, there’s no excuse for a celeb to look consistently bad. Why? Because they have stylists to do all their shopping, curating and dressing for them. The average person has nobody but herself so what gives with some of these celebs? We’ve included just a few of the fashion violaters out there. Mind you, we can’t include folks like Lil Kim cuz she’s beyond help as well all know.
I honestly can’t remember the last time I looked at Christina Aguilera and thought, that’s a pretty girl. Oh yeah, I do. It was about the time that her first hit single Genie In A Bottle came out. She was the posterchild for cute and talented circa 1999. But when it her second album came out, it was obvious that Aguilera was embracing the dirty, trashy look. Since then, she hasn’t managed to look classy at all. I mean, EVER. A stylist is supposed to save you from embarrassing yourself, not push your own convoluted interpretations of style to the limits. I often think that when Aguilera was interviewing stylists, she just hired the person who most agreed with the fact that the look she was sporting in “Dirty” was chic. Not only does she need to fire her stylist but she also needs a beauty expert to correct that overly blonde and ratty hair.
