Lena’s Ladies: Reminding Us How Fashion Really Is a Fairytale

Any successful designer can say that he or she has “fans” or “patrons.” Lena Hoschek, however, has the privilege of being surrounded by a community of creative individuals whose style designates them as designers in their own right.

Meet some of the incredible ladies I photographed before and after the Lena Hoschek show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin.

So this Anne Hathaway dress fiasco is getting out of hand…

In light of all the controversy surrounding Anne Hathaway’s Oscar wardrobe, it’s only fitting that I come to the defense of my short haired comrade in the inaugural post on my blog.

Ms. Hathaway looked stunning yesterday evening at the Oscars in her pale pink Prada gown. The boatneck front and dramatic back paired up wonderfully with her short hair. A simple, yet also very refined selection for the red carpet.

Having said all that, here is my simple answer to all you haters out there: EVERYONE HAS NIPPLES.

You took health and biology right? I’m pretty sure that between both of those classes, nipples were probably a part of some discussion.

Not only do we all have nipples, but we also possess a skill called logic–well I can’t say everyone possesses the latter, but we’ll just leave it at that for now.

Clothes don’t always do what we want them to do. We may button, zip, pin and even tape all we like, but at the end of the day, it is the environment around us that determines whether or not our outfit remains intact.

Ladies, I’m sure you’ve worn a bandeau under a sheer blouse and had it slip down in public. Awful, isn’t it? But we tell ourselves its worth it in the end–all in the name of looking stylish.

Gentlemen, don’t even get me started. It doesn’t matter if you nip slip. In fact, I would say that in our gym obsessed culture it’s highly encouraged. When you’re not taking off your shirt, you’re permitted to wear clothes in public that may or may not expose your nipples. Us ladies on the other hand–we are expected to live by the ever confusing motto of “show just enough, but just not too much.”

Wardrobe malfunctions happen. I’m ashamed of all the ladies out there who were quick to attack Ms. Hathaway. We’ve got to stick together–not turn one of our own into an object of ridicule.

It’s hypocritical in my opinion–ragging on a a celebrity for exposing too much of his or her body when we live in a culture where we thrive on admiring celebrity body parts. It’s almost March and we’re entering open season on whose got the best beach body.┬áSo give it a rest people. Ms. Hathaway deserves to enjoy her award without having to listen to your amateur comments.
