FashIN/FashOUT: the stars of Lebanon came out for the Forum De Beyrouth, Beirut’s Fashion Week. Make no mistake: Dubai may have more money but Lebanon has way more fashionistas who beat to their own drum.
FashOUT/FashIN: no, fruit roll up bondage dresses cannot be a thing, no matter how skinny and tan you are. Yes, black beaded jumpsuit and that so ridiculous-its-whitehot papm frond headpiece need to be trends stat.
THE RED CARPET
FashIN: if there was ever a girly jumpsuit that wasn’t sexy, this is it. FashIN: knee-high impossibly strappy sandals were strutting on many a feet, and these are paired with impossibly-girly toile.
FashIN: turning a basic pair of black jeans and sheer top into a memorable look with crazy accessories.
FashIN: because sometimes we all want to look like a cabaret dancer bedazzled with lips. FashIN: a bit formal, but it can be hard to wear that grey color, so props to Samarya.
FashOUT: looking like a Barbie doll all greased up.
FashOUT: it’s not the Oscars, Serene. You don’t have to overdress. FashOUT: when your sandals look like they’re cutting off your circulation.
FashOUT: cutouts that are too weird to function. Why Stephanie?
FashOUT: shirts that look like doilies. FashOUT: looking like you belong on a Malibu red carpet circa 2005 but thinking you’re slick enough to get away with it by pairing your look with those circa 2013 obnoxious Valentino pumps. fashOUT: 2005 strikes again! Couldn’t you see Nicole Richie or Paris Hilton wearing this while promoting the Simple Life? FashOUT: looking like an 80s Barbie: I swear I had a dress like that for my dolls. FashOUT: those pants. That top. Those shoes. Each piece is more hideous and unflattering then the next.
FashIN: wearing more bedazzled lips! FashIN: immensely pretty but dranatic floral bodices. Wow, Aimee! FashOUT: I feel this is what aging dowager princesses mightvwear, minus the sheerness of the skirt.
AFTER PARTY WRAP UP
FashIN: Looking like a modern-day Little Bo Peep shouldn’t be cool, but I ADORE this. FashIN: I shouldn’t like this sheer-panel checkered ivory playsuit either, but I do. FashOFF: bondage Barbie is NOT COOL.
