News, but not the serious kind

Yeah, it makes your butt look big; worst women’s fashions of the year…

December 9, 2010

BRITAIN/

It was a year when models hit the international fashion runways looking like kitchen utensils, nutcrackers, forest creatures and, well, the recently deceased.

BRITAIN/You know it was a bad year in fashion when my blog item that was headlined “The worst dress in the history of Earth?” barely makes it onto my Top 10 Worst Fashions list.

And yes, you know it was a very, very bad year in women’s fashion when the hottest new model featured in this blog was Hulga Fekrat.

Here is my pick of the 10 worst fashion creations of the year. Ladies, most of you will be unwrapping at least one of these over the holidays, so try not to appear repulsed:

10. The worst dress in the history of Earth?

9. Bring me that one, the SAUCY wench!

8. A different sort of Georgia Peach?

7. Remember the name Hulga Fekrat

GEORGIA/6. Ya think she might be nuts, Lamar?

5. Crack me another walnut, honey pie!

4. Hot fashions for the fussy hussy?

3. Does this make my butt look big?

2. Proposing to the decomposing

Hulga Fekrat! She could play the role of Bearded Lady very well… or maybe be a part of a skit where she is the devil? Or the Devil’s Costume Designer?

Helga has managed to grow facial hair that is more awesome than most guys can grow! I am not among the “most guys” of course. My goatee has the ladies swoonin for me. ;)

Oh look, a donut!

BG, can you use your connections and intelligence to get answers to the pressing underlying question of who buys this stuff? Who keeps these scary designers in business? Inquiring minds want to know…

Hey! You leave our Helga alone. She’s one of the best agents the boss has got and is really a great guy, er … goat-girl-beast thing.

Nosmo, its HULGA not HELGA!
Cam, if she is your sister… I would,in all seriousness, worry about you…

That bottom one looks like the love child of Princess Peach and Toad.

@justCAM, is that your sister or are they your sisters?

@Spin, justRAM you say? Ya know she would make a good mascot for Dodge.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive
 

@69 … LOL! She was always Mom’s favorite.

A very good point, Spin. Uh, where IS she today? Making guest appearances in this blog and going on the occasional cheap date with Lamar?

@ifly … if I had a Hulga hood ornament I’d be the envy of all the OE commenters for sure.

What,my Lamar is dating Hulga Fekrat! The Agony. How is a demure, decent girl supposed to compete with a cosmopolitan siren? And my Lamar is so vulnerable to vamping. He probably won’t even recognize it.

Oh, holiday fasions! Rudolph doesn’t appear to be in the top photo, but is sure looks like Vixen is. Does the ornament costume in the bottom photo come with a jingle bell bracelet?

Hulga looks, um, amazingly like Hulga.

@justCAM, yes, yes you would!

BG, come on, there is no need to link Hulga with Lamar… Hulga has the Devil by her side…
Lady, I am sure you can get Lamar away from all this before it gets any more heartbreaking-soap-opera like!!

Thanks for the hanky, Shra.

I am very disappointed that you didn’t have the runway walk in streaming video.

Sorry Lady, but I’m pretty sure Lamar isn’t looking for demure or decent.

Just to double-check, I said this morning, “Lamar, are you looking for demure?”

He replied, “No Boss, there’s one above the sink in the men’s room…”

Dear Sweet Spin, After Mr. B’s withering lack of encouragement, my bruised heart was comforted by your opening chapter to what will clearly be this century’s “Wuthering Heights”. I am eager to collaborate.

Posted by ladylala | Report as abusive
 

That’s very good news, Lady. Please hurry. This century sure needs its own “Wuthering Heights.”

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive
 

Spin, I’d go with “Heathmar”. And for originality’s sake, we should change the title to “Withering Hots”, maybe. And shift the scene from a heath to a moor. Thanks for providing a deadline, Mr. B. I work best under pressure.

It’s your call, Lady, but wasn’t the moor thing already exhausted in “Othello”?

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive
 

Or maybe you could take this to the marshlands….

“wasn’t the moor thing already exhausted in “Othello”?”
