LOOKBOOK.NU- Poses that NEED to Go!

Dearest readers, what's on the table for me in today's special message from Poor Little Bitch Girl is this:

* I fully acknowledge using LOOKBOOK.nu for (almost) daily suggestions of interesting ways to to use items already in my closet and

* Consider it understood that the majority of lookbook.nu "HOT" and "HYPE" models have a self-reported median age of 17, also

* I completely get that said teenage models are simply parroting the stances they've forever gleaned from high fashion magazines.

THAT said, the model and fashionista wannabes from Prague, Osaka, Wellington and Neptune (grrr) might consider avoiding the following acts when uploading pics to LOOKBOOK.nu. At least if they care about Poor Little Bitch Girl's opinion!


THE SLUMP.
It didn't work for Miley and it doesn't work for you.






THE PHOTOSHOP.
The world needs fashion help. Don't get cute with graphic design.





THE MELANCHOLIA.
Cheer up. You got hyped by enough fashion-watchers the world over to put you where you are.





THE OH BOLLOCKS I MAY HAVE STEPPED IN IT.
You didn't step in anything. You are wearing your favorite shoes and are in a photo shoot and are far too careful for such tomfoolery.



THE CRYBABY POSTER
You appear to have Histrionic Personality Disorder which will get you both everywhere and nowhere in fashion.




That said, Poor Little Bitch Girl would also like to note that I am so happy about the black and brown mixing that still at its antepenultimate moment in fashion because I love love love black and brown together and our girls and boys on LOOKBOOK.nu certainly demonstrate this.

That's all for now. Kisses.

  2. When the slump is handled just right, it's a beautiful thing. I am thinking of gorgeous, alien-like mod models from the '60s who perfected it. But yes, in the hands (or backs, as it were) of raw, seventeen-year-old quaking ids, it just looks, well, slumpy.

  4. PLBG knows that any of these poses (save the bebe business, sorry bebe!) can be magical and awe-inspiring in the correct artistic hands.
