The Oscars aired on Sunday night…..It is now Tuesday and the NYC Daily News is STILL talking about red carpet fashion does and don’ts……..ON THE FRONT PAGE!
I realize that the Daily News is just trying to sell their newspaper……and this is what sells……but, doesn’t anyone realize that there may be more important things to talk about in the world?
Does it not seem logical that by focusing all of our attention, money and intellectual devotion to fashion, we are allowing everything else around us to crumble to pieces…….because we don’t care enough about it to even think about it?
I was watching the red carpet just for the humor of watching grown people discuss whether or not this ruffle or that neckline was worthy of admiration.
I also enjoyed watching the celebrities stop and turn from side to side to make sure the photographer get their best angle in the 50,000 pictures that were being taken of them.
My favorite part was watching the very well practiced facial expressions produced by each of the celebrities, which they have officially deemed to be the most flattering in pictures.
I couldn’t help being reminded of the movie Zoolander and Ben Stiller’s version of the “Magnum”………
After about 15 minutes of getting my kicks, I had to turn it off…….because I couldn’t help thinking that this gross display of artificiality is just plain ridiculous.
And our nation’s obsession with it, is even more ridiculous.
Why do we waste our brain cells on what Michelle Williams was wearing on Sunday night? Has anyone ever heard the expression …..”if you don’t use it, you lose it”..?
And……the fact that we all humor it by talking about it every once in a while isn’t really the crime……
The crime is that multiple billions of dollars (22 to be exact in the US alone) is invested into the value of fashion every year!……
……and fashion has no value!!!!
Everyone who is “fashionable” knows that you can’t wear a dress twice…..what kind of value is that?
Meanwhile, …….people are dying all over the world from poverty that, according to Vision of Earth.org, would only cost $175,000,000,000 to eliminate completely.
In other words, if America were to become fashion free for only eight years……we could end world hunger!!!
That’s right ladies and gentlemen…..if you can just resist feeding into Hollywood brainwash and NOT GIVE YOUR MONEY TO STUFF THAT DOES NO ONE ANY GOOD (except for the designers)……you can contribute to the end of world hunger!!!!
Sounds like a great solution to me…
Don’t give your money to anyone……..and instead……STOP GIVING YOUR MONEY to the manufacturers of bullshit!
Do you really need that $1500 handbag more than this kid needs rice?
I know that couture dress is the bomb, but does that one awesome night out just to show it off justify this?
OK….so world hunger isn’t your problem…..
But…… lining the pockets of Donatella Versace is?
