Fashionista Rip Off-Updated

I totally don’t know what “The Costume Institute Ball at the Met” back on may 5th was all about. I just know we weren’t invited. And I must admit, that hurts a little, especially since this year’s theme was  "American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity:" I mean, we practically own that theme! But now that I’ve had a chance to review the pictures, I see why our invitation “got lost in the mail.”

For one thing, many of the women showed up in what were clearly ripoffs of Lady M’s own special sense of fashion icon-ary. See for yourself:

And by the way ladies, cosmetic surgery and Botox are not necessarily your friend, ladies. Do not let this raccoon/chipmunk look happen to you:

L’Wren really knows how to make the most of “the girls,” as do these fashionistas:

Well, we’re still working on that. Let’s Moove them up!

UPDATE: L’Wren Scott Shoulder Accessory

I’m sure L’Wren had no idea how much controversy would be generated over the “accessory” worn on the shoulder of Christina Hendricks at the gala ball. Everyone is asking what is that?

Rumors and speculation ran rampant: dead animal, tumor, red leaf lettuce, mushroom, and on and on. One “fashion writer” even thought it was a cleverly disguised air pump, there to keep the “girls” full.

Well, I’ve downloaded all the red carpet footage to my hard drive and reviewed every security camera shot to get to the bottom of this for my MOLs and MODs. I for one was surprised when Christi’s little “accessory” woke up!!!
