Some of you jumped all over me the other day for making fun of The Hills' Heidi Montag and the debut of her clothing line, Heidiwood, saying that I should let her "follow her dream" and crap like that. But, here's the thing. If designing trampy clothes was Heidi's career aspiration, why did she drop out of fashion school within the first week to become a club promoter?
Anyway, New York Magazine's fashion critics actually went and tried on some of articles in the Heidiwood line and they seem to think that Heidi missed all the "stay in school" messages growing up. In a nutshell, they said Heidi's clothes are made like crap -- and though they may be cheap (nothing is over $60), they aren't even worth that much. On top of that, the magazine's brave ladies said they would basically be mistaken for streetwalkers if they wore any of the items outside.
"No self-respecting grown woman should allow herself to be seen in these garments. Only two of the twelve items have sleeves, and just one — a pair of jeans — extends past mid-thigh. In fact, only one other thing extends past the upper thigh: a dress that would have been mildly acceptable had it not been made from the kind of cotton you usually only see on Target’s discount panties. At one point, we faced each other: One of us wore black short-shorts with a one-inch inseam (half a thumb, for real) and a zebra-striped tank with a faux-chiffon back bow; the other, a white-denim, butt-cleavage-baring skirt with a backless teal top that's baggy in the bust and tight at the gut — perfect if you haven't eaten pasta in ten years and have ginormous implants (sound familiar?). The stuff was the complete opposite of flattering. We looked like rejects from Rock of Love II with Bret Michaels; stick us on the hood of a car and Whitesnake would've appeared, guitars in hand."
That's pretty hilarious. Can I continue to make fun of her now?
