At the beginning of each month, NY Mag‘s The Cut reviews the previous month’s fashion magazines to come up with the “Best & Worst of” the top publications. I always try to control my laughter when reading, but inevitably fail, eliciting concerned looks from others. Here are the highlights from the January issue review– hope you get as big a kick out of it as I do!
Best Fruit – Nylon
Pineapples are the cats of fruit.

Best Floral Mess - Dazed & Confused
Really. They couldn’t work in a coconut bra? It’s like, why even bother.

Second Best Floral Mess - Marie Claire
Military florals. Even the model is like, “This hat is coming off… right?”

Best Face - Elle
What a coincidence — that’s my listening face, too!

Most Awkward Posing - Flaunt
Well, at least she’s not naked and got to wear more than a g-string and see-through shirt.
But it’s hard not to feel bad for this girl, what with the Satanic shoes and bending over on a chair and all.

Most Unnecessary Makeovers -Glamour
A Kardashian or two got their paws on these women and shoved them into
synthetic fur vests and pleather hooker heels so that they might exemplify “Kardashian Law.”

Grossest Hair-Eating - Dazed & Confused
She had a dream, you had a barf bag…

Best Accessory - Vogue
And so fills the monthly requisite cat quotient.
If you look closel,  it appears that the cat has a leash hanging off its neck,
which may or may not be attached to her belt.
I’ve been saying people should go around that way for years.

Biggest Pants - Surface
You could probably DIY a pair with a bagged curtain from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
The street style people would be all over it.

Best Sleeve - Surface
Could have also easily gone with best upper abs. Look out, Karlie Kloss.

Best Editor Homage – BritishVogue
This is a recent favorite dress of Anna Wintour’s!

Most Unnecesary X-Ray Effect -W
If someone’s wearing a puffy sleeve, you want tosee the puffy sleeve.

Best Use of Egg - Flaunt
It’s like she laid it herself.
