Hideous or Amazing: Rihanna goes hard

Bad news Versace, an extensive poll spanning continents and at least three people has declared the £410 World Cup t-short hideous by a margin of 60% to 40%. (I expect a grovelling apology and offer of free stuff in my inbox within the hour).

But this week there could only be one outfit to pick, because all other ‘dresses’ paled into insignificance next to the inimitable Rihanna at the CFDA Fashion Awards, where incidentally, she was presented with the 2014 Fashion Icon Award by Anna Wintour.

I’ll let the pictures do the talking…

Hideous or Amazing: Versace Loves Brazil, but do you love Versace?

Bjork was a huge winner, 75% (of the probable four voters?) felt that we should all wear swan dresses on a daily basis. Sewing machines at the ready.

This week is a steal, for just £410 you too can love Brazil with Versace (in fact I’ve heard it’s the only way to love Brazil…)

Swanning around: Hideous or Amazing?

Last week’s Alexander McQueen shoes divided my massive readership quite a bit, however love-of-the-ridiculous prevailed with 60% thinking Lady Gaga was right to wear such amazing shoes, and 40% shouting hideous.

This week we’re flashing back to the Oscars of 2001, where Bjork glided down the red carpet in a Marjan Pejoski swan dress. Cards on the table here, I love it, I want it, and not just for fancy dress, as always though I defer to your opinion (maybe, potentially, possibly).

And just for the fun, a baby swan!

Alien-inspired shoes: Hideous or Amazing?

After the ‘roaring’ success of last week’s HoA post, where 83.33% of voters felt that Katie Holmes needs to find a new stylist and/or Disney inspiration, it returns for week two.

Alexander McQueen is next up, more specifically the alien-inspired shoes of their Spring/Summer 2010 collection, also modelled by Lady Gaga in the Bad Romance video.

While I don’t think I’ll run to the shops in them (let me have my fantasy of having a spare £2 grand!) I actually think they’re pretty amazing… but as always, you decide!

Hideous or Amazing: you decide

[15/5/14 the people have spoken: HIDEOUS]

As a Friday treat I will be reinvigorating my blog by asking one of life’s most important questions: When it comes to examples of outlandish fashion, is the result hideous or amazing? (HoA for the cool kids)

Vote however you like: in the poll below, as a comment for the post, twitter (@merrymerimary) or instagram (@MerryLittleWorld) and I’ll tally up the winners as we go…

Kicking things off is Ms Katie Holmes, and her choice of Marchesa (Disney) Met Ball 2014 outfit as seen below. I’m feeling ‘hideous’ but tell me if I’m wrong! 20140508-133301.jpg 20140508-133310.jpg
