SO OVER: HILLBILLY CHIC
Do certain people not realise how downright dirty they look? Dirty, faded, stonewashed denim that is too tight, or too short, see Hazel O’Sullivan, right. Thick, heavy make-up — it just looks grubby. Tattooed-on eyebrows. Tatty hair extensions, which, if you’re honest with yourself, are fooling no one, and exist as a separate entity from your real hair. Past-its-sell-by-date fake tan, now separating into dry patches with the real skin colour showing through. Gnarled toenails covered and recovered in several coats of nail polish. Manicures involving Swarovski crystals. Ill-fitting bandage dresses. Doughnut hairdos. Stripper platforms. Dry shampoo in the hair (for the uninitiated, it’s like talcum powder, meant to get rid of day-old unwashed hair’s greasy look; actually, it just makes hair look matte, and equally dirty). If any of the above are part of your style, it’s time to take a long, hard look in the mirror and reassess.
