You would expect that famous fashion designers would look amazing and dress impeccably. After all, these are the people responsible for dressing some of the world’s most famous celebrities and influential leaders. Most of them do look pretty awesome as you’d expect but there are a few who make you wonder if they’ve spent so long dressing others that they have absolutely no idea how to dress themselves anymore. Let’s take a look at some of the worst dressed fashion designers:
Walter Van Beirendonck has to make the list for his bizarre choices of ridiculously bright coloured clothing. He looks like he’s from a magical land of strange woodland creatures which could well be what is going on in his head. He has a killer beard though but should really ditch those day-glo orange suit jackets.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are global fashion icons but should maybe spend a little more time in front of the mirror. They are often seen in rather dull denim and jacket combos and are probably a little too old to be carrying off the thigh high ripped jeans look.
Karl Lagerfeld is a living legend, working at Chanel, Fendi and his own name brand. He is a fashion God but why, oh why does he dress so weirdly? He is a peculiar character with a penchant for fingerless gloves, dark shades and strange collars. He could well be the most successful and profitable designer that has ever lived but it seems odd to take fashion advice from someone who looks that strange. Play it safe, unlike Karl, with some good quality, classic menswear. For Mens Farah Shirts, visit http://ejmenswear.com/brands/farah.
Why do Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared2 insist on wearing matching outfits? OK so it might have been cute when these twins were little but now it just seems a bit freaky. They have dressed some huge celebrities, including Fergie, Lenny Kravitz, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears so why can’t they sort out their own act? If dressing the same wasn’t weird enough, those matching outfits are also pretty awful in themselves, including gold tuxedos!
John Galliano has been in the news recently for all the wrong reasons, after being fired from Dior for racist rants. After some rehab and much remorse, he seems to making a comeback which is not surprising as he was hugely successful in reviving Dior’s fortunes and is supremely talented. Why then does he dress like Prince in a badly fitting wig? He seems to favour a naval, military look complete with plaited braids. But who are we to judge this creative master?
Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren of the label Viktor & Rolf have risen to fame very quickly in the fashion world. Based in Holland, their fashion shows are renowned for being edgy and groundbreaking. Sadly, their attire is less impressive. Donning strange prints, weird fabrics and extremely bright, garish garments seems to be making the wrong statement if they want to sell their brand. Maybe some designers try a bit too hard to be ‘out there’ because they think that’s what we have come to expect.
