Well its been 24hrs since last night’s Golden Globes ceremony and the internet is abuzz with Meryl vs Resident Chump, Hidden Fences and Tracee Ellis Ross. It seems the main chatter amongst the fatosphere though was this dress worn by Chrissy Metz.
From the posts that I read on the Garner Style Facebook page the majority of commenters hated it and felt her stylist should be fired/ run out of town. My opinion? I liked all of it apart from the shoulders. I love the colour and you probably already know that velvet is my favourite fabric so of course I like that too. I think the drape of the dress is exquisite and I love the gathers and detailing at the front but the shoulders…. man the shoulder action just let the whole thing down in my humble opinion. Are those actually shoulder pads? Are we back there again? Maybe Chrissy is single-handedly going to bring them back to the fashion fore. She could become the next Balmain muse as they love a pronounced shoulder. Maybe not as we also know high-end designers don’t dress fat people.
Still, I’m pretty much through with begging people to make clothes in my size. I’ll just take my custom to someone who is interested in bigger bodies and stop wasting my breath and bandwidth. On that note, come through Nathan Paul! I’m off to find out more about the man who designed the much talked about frock.
