It just seems like today’s the day we all talk about Tacky as a style choice. We sang the huzzahs at Miss Jenny F.T.B. for knowing how to do Tacky Glam and make it work for her, as opposed to Kim Kardashian, whose brand of tacky is more about looking half-dressed in weird and attention-seeking ways.
Then there’s this gal, who we rarely ever cover any more because she doesn’t do conventional celebrity self-promotional stuff, but who has suddenly hit the sidewalks and faced the paps this week on an agressive and notable level. Miss Jessica’s brand of tacky? Cartoon tacky:
Alternately: Reality Show Star Tacky.
She looks like a diner waitress who just cashed her lottery winnings and went on a shopping spree. Seriously, what’s with that dress? It looks like it needs a nametag and a little hat. Everything else screams “Don’t bother. I’m wearing it out of the store.”
The truly shocking part is just how high-end all of this stuff is. Gucci, Valentino and Louboutin, straight down the line. It takes a special kind of tacky to make stuff this expensive look like a trip to the mall.
