I say that because everyone (and by everyone I mean the people on those mean spirited “I-know-everything-about-fashion” tv shows) hated what she wore, but seemed to make it very personal.
“She looks fifty years old, why would someone put such a young beautiful girl in Valentino? And garnet? My grandmother wears garnet. Give the girl some diamonds.”
“Oh, but it is Valentino ready to wear.”
“Ah, well that’s a different story ….”
No, that’s ridiculous.
[So what makes you an authority, Bacilio, you write for a jewelry magazine?]
Good point. I do get down on the red carpet outfits sometimes, but I always try to say something positive and try to make it clear that I am just offering my opinion, while certain people just seem to have nothing nice to say just to get a laugh and a few more points in the ratings.
I would also hope that if anyone disagreed with me, and many have, that they would say so in the comment box (which I love, please continue to join the conversation!).
Okay, enough of my preaching / venting about tv fashionista personalities.
I thought that Miley looked adorable, and honestly I like that she wore garnet rather than lots of diamonds. She has years of red carpets ahead of her and I think that the Neil Lane garnet and yellow gold earrings suit her, though they may be a little too long.
Baby steps Miley, baby steps.
And just for fun …
