This is on the fashion pages. Never before have I seen such an ugly outfit.
It also totals 1700 which is hilarious to me.
The models expression says it all.

That's fucking hideous.

Ledkr Sun 08-Jun-14 16:35:30

Isn't it? And so expensive. It's like a joke.
The sandals are Stella McCartney FAUX LEATHER. 545 pounds!! Are they mad?

But if you are eg Uma Thurman or Keira Knightly, you might get away with it.

Wow. She's thin. I know it's not the done thing to say so, but - wow. Thin.

Horrid. I can see someone maybe getting away with it if they were a total fashion victim 6 foot tall, platinum blonde waif but can you imagine an ordinary, mumsy type of person wearing that? On the school run, say? Or for nipping to Tesco?

I got a lovely smart linen dress at Peacocks for £18 last week. Its lined too! Stuff the telegraph

Nulliferous Sun 08-Jun-14 16:43:01

Peacocks, you say? takes notes

MissMilbanke Sun 08-Jun-14 16:43:56

Fugly isn't the word … and how much <gasp>

I honestly don't think you can see enough of her underneath all that expensive fabric to make a comment on her weight, she looks quite normal to me - but her face is hysterical

Looks like the kind of fuddy-duddy stuff Alexa Chung wears! Although I'm sure it's supposed to be 'ironically' frumpy!

Ledkr Sun 08-Jun-14 17:00:09

I also got some lovely stuff in peacocks last week.
I love the odd posture of the model.
She's saying "ffs, get me to peacocks"

Strokethefurrywall Sun 08-Jun-14 17:06:49

Oh good lord, that's fucking hideous....

Ledkr Sun 08-Jun-14 17:07:45

She looks like June Whitfield as eddies mum in ab fab

WipsGlitter Sun 08-Jun-14 17:16:38

Individually they're nice peices. Together - hideous.

TheBogQueen Sun 08-Jun-14 17:17:51

She looks like she 's about to keel over

Quick someone get to

not nice. shirt could work with very sharp black trousers.

Marylou2 Sun 08-Jun-14 17:53:50

Just awful! Pages of ghastlyness in the Telegraph magazine yesterday. Who do they think reads it?

Ledkr Sun 08-Jun-14 19:10:09

The shirt could work well with trousers I agree but so could any white shirt that wasnt over five hundred smackers!!

LaurieFairyCake Sun 08-Jun-14 19:12:49

I think that about most high fashion

All I can hear in my head is 'I saw you coming'

Faux leather for 600 knicker, ffs

PinkSquash Sun 08-Jun-14 19:15:07

That's fucking hilariously awful.

Ledkr Sun 08-Jun-14 19:15:14

Yes me too. If so one told me that shirt was from h and m I wouldn't bat an eyelid. What on earth do people earn who can pay that much for a white shirt!!

Amethyst24 Sun 08-Jun-14 21:37:44

The top might not be so bad, with skinny jeans or maybe tailored grey cigarette trousers for work. But with that skirt....!

KoalaDownUnder Mon 09-Jun-14 06:22:06


If you put it on an average woman and walked her down the street, everyone would assume she'd made some bad choices at the chazza shop.

MinesAPintOfTea Mon 09-Jun-14 06:34:06

Presumably the faux leather is for ethical rather than cost-cutting reasons? Stella's mum was the noisy famous twentieth century vegetarian.

It does look like an outfit that the midweek shoppers in m&s wear to look respectable. But on a waif-like model it just looks ridiculous.

SanityClause Mon 09-Jun-14 06:52:34

The sandals are the ugliest part of the outfit. They look like something my 71yo, and not noted for fashion sense, mother would wear.

The skirt is a pretty colour, but Frumparama! I'm not sure what you could wear it with to look less frumpy. In fact, it looks like the kind of skirt my 82yo MIL would wear with a baggy t shirt.

The shirt is attractive, but expensive.

Surely the point of spending so much on clothes is not to "get away with them", but for them to look lovely?
