Even though we’ve made it our life’s work to cover them, sometimes the stiffness and staging of these sidewalk celebrity fashion shows wind up looking hilarious to us.
“Glee” star Dianna Agron out and about in New York City.
Louis Vuitton Resort 2013 Collection/Model: Andie Arthur
Maybe it’s because Dianna, despite having pretty much every physical advantage a girl could have in this culture if she wants to be considered pretty by the culture, gets it wrong in her personal style so often. In a way, it’s endearing (like her knee scab), but after awhile, it just gets frustrating (to bitchy fashion bloggers such as we). We just want to say, “Honey, you’re playing on the lowest difficulty setting. Let’s get it together, mkay?”
But then she shows up on a NYC street, all by herself, just wandering about without a care in the world, dressed in a gorgeous Louis Vuitton dress and conspicuously sporting a bunch of other names on her person. Not that we’re criticizing her for this. It’s the system. This is how it works. She’s just playing her part. Like we said, sometimes the absurdity of it jumps out at us, like here, because she’s so clearly been meticulously styled specifically for “candid” shots.
But she looks very cute. The dress strikes us a vaguely mature in style, but then again, that’s her style. Love the sandals. The bag, to our eyes, just doesn’t go at all. That’s a bag for a more go-getting, on-the-run, places-to-go kinda look. Maybe that’s why this little sidewalk sashay sticks out to us. It feels like she was just handed that bag for reasons other than “it looks cute with the dress.”
Boy, are we ever overthinking this. What the hell was in our coffee this morning?
