In the following posts, my commentary is critical about the appearance of beautiful women. I hope it’s not mean, I do think they’re gorgeous.

But my notes are honest.

I was truly disappointed to see some of these women who I “idolize” (I use that word lightly here) for their fashion sensibility.

The Golden Globes were like a walking “What Not to Wear” page out of the back of a tabloid magazine.

Yep, I know what you’re thinking. I have not been a fashion plate lately (or maybe you never thought I was). But I think you can see the difference between my blog and the Golden Globes.

At the end of the day, when the makeup is off and the jammies are on, we all have our adorable imperfections. I show you mine because, well, that’s me. BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HERE.

Red carpet. No budget. Anything you want. Months to prepare. People to shop/design for you. Hours to get dressed. And this how they came out. Sorry, I’m not impressed.

Mary, Mary, Mary. After admitting that you went “straight to for pictures of the Best Dressed” (thus admitting that you failed to do any actual journalism or research of any sort), you proceeded to gush all over Sandra Bullock’s coma-inducing choice of taupe, misguidedly bemoan Jennifer Lopez’s self awareness of her own smoking body, and struggle to muster not even two dozen words bout Deborah Messing’s recent styling struggles (in short: bad colors, bad hair, bad jewelry) and then — kaputt!

That’s all she wrote folks. As a self-styled style expert, Mary naturally lacks the common sense, authorial creativity, and good taste necessary to turn nitpicking into intellectually stimulating or even — God forbid — interesting commentary.

But while there is a Mary Rambin out in the world there will be people who think that since Mary Rambin has a fancy website, she must obviously be right. C’est la vie.
