K-ddiction

A recent interview with Tim Gunn, a well-known American fashion consultant, by the Huff Post highlights his views about the Kardashian family ‘Valguar’ taste in fashion and his uncertainty as to why they are so publically exposed. Has our society’s obsession driven their success?

When it comes to fashion he says “Just consider this, if a Kardashian is wearing it, don’t”. He believes they portray a bad example to women, and their style lacks authenticity and design.

Despite the fact that I undoubtedly agree with his statement, ironically enough, my hand goes up in shame as I admit that curiosity takes the better of me and I can’t help but ‘check up’ on their social media updates.

A close inspection into the term ‘addiction’ reveals that it is an act of enthusiasm when one is devoted to a particular thing or activity. I’m convinced that humans are a form of substance abuse, one person to another.

The spiral effect of addiction turns into obsession, you begin to ‘love to hate’, but still can’t get enough, continuously leaving you wanting more. The easy part is that you are aware of it and you recognise the flaw in it, but how do you stop? Or better yet, subconsciously do you actually want to stop?

Let no opportunity go to waste, if one thing can be admired about this brazen family is that you can always make something out of nothing, it just takes commitment, persistence, and possibly some good genes.

If a lion, a lion roars would you not listen?

Fashion, like travel, goes in cycles. Barbie, the single most successful doll was invented back in 1959, well dressed and very well mannered. To her horror wearing a bikini outfit in this century almost categorises her as ‘overdressed’. She’s had to become a naughty nurse, or a bad ass school teacher, even a cat lady.

Excuse her for a while, while she’s so wide-eyed and down caught in the middle. She might seem so strong, and might speak so long, but she’s never been so wrong.

But can’t you see, she’s overworked. High maintenance has become the norm and more is perceived as more and simplicity is just too damn plain simple.

Unacceptable, but excuse her for a while, she’s turned a blind eye with a stare caught down in the middle.

Beauty

I’m utterly confused as to how Kimberly Kardashian’s haircut is so relevant to society that it has the world chatting. Very little credit to her, but to her team for executing this ‘project’ so well and so often. Her so called ‘sexuality’ sets her apart but tapping into a world of class based on a curvy figure does not make it credible.

Disappointingly enough she speaks the language of fashion and battles to stand out making two statements :

1) Smiling is out of fashion
2) Nudity is in fashion

It’s the uncommon that grabbed my attention in the below speech. Beauty is within, to hold ground, to be kind and to stand out alone. Strangeness is necessarily in order to be unique.

“We need women who are so strong that they can be gentle, so educated that they can be humble, so fierce that they can be compassionate, so passionate that they can be rational, and so disciplined that they can be free. We need uncommon women. And here you are. And how deeply reassuring to me it is to know that wherever we go—there you will be.”

(Mount Holyoke College Commencement Speech, Kavita N. Ramdas ‘85)

At the end it’s a matter of opinion, but my dear lady, it’s always good to note that less is more!
