Baby Got Back

To the beanpole dames in the magazines: You ain't it, Miss Thing!

Manolo says, some things work on almost anyone. Some things only work on the skinny models. Some things work on no one.

    How odd that the are sold at a site named Ssense, when they make no sense.

    So… old man crotch is in this year.

  4. Leigh April 29, 2010 at 9:22 pm #

    please God, do not let this catch on with the masses!

    @Karen Old man crotch!!! Ha! How the Manolo wishes he had said that.

    Diaper butt! This makes the model look 110 years old below the waist. This was the ‘best’ picture for the product? Who picked this for an ad?

    Oy. This is shooting fish in a barrel, but my GAWD those are horrendous.

    She is bow legged from the scurvy and wearing pants she took off a corpse… Maybe she used that button adaptor they show on late night TV… I’m lost and my mind is gone… I just saw a commercial with crocs attacking a woman’s feets. Shutttttter!!!!!

    That’s weird because I have no bootie and I get jeans that make it look like I have one. What are these jeans for? So sad!

  10. Phyllis April 29, 2010 at 10:47 pm #

    The really unforgivable thing is the badly sewn zipper that cants a 1/2 inch to the left and the crooked yoke seam at center back.

    the crazy meth lady who hangs out at the gas station sometimes sports this look.

    Phyllis, they’re “asymmetrical” – it’s *on purpose*. Criminy.

  13. Sarah April 29, 2010 at 11:49 pm #

    Sweet Jesus, won’t someone change that child’s diaper?

  14. retna April 30, 2010 at 12:16 am #

    I wouldn’t wear those even if they paid me (handsomely). Should be used to illustrate the word ‘fugly’.

  15. WendyB April 30, 2010 at 12:50 am #

    Simply terrifying. In a confusing way.

  16. raincoaster April 30, 2010 at 1:30 am #

    Baby got pwned if she paid for those things.

  17. Tebonin April 30, 2010 at 2:56 am #

    Err….I cant understand this fashion..maybe I am out??

  18. Ruth April 30, 2010 at 3:05 am #

    Is it just me or does she look like she might be actually crouching down and pooping in her very ugly jeans?

  19. theDiva April 30, 2010 at 6:43 am #

    I don’t understand. In the immortal words of Gene Hackman in The Bird Cage, I feel like I’m insane.

  20. theDiva April 30, 2010 at 6:43 am #

    p.s. LOVE the tooltip, dear Manolo.

    A very, very wise professor in fashion design school once told me, “Just because you CAN design and make something doesn’t mean you SHOULD.” “Asymmetric droopy crotch jeans” reminds me of these very wise words.

  22. Livia April 30, 2010 at 9:46 am #

    And you have to really want to look like this to pay $248 for them too. But they don’t come in my size. Even the “designer” doesn’t want me to wear these jeans. Not that I was tempted. This is so wrong it’s kind of shocking.

    my eyes! my eyes! aaaaagh!

  25. Sarah April 30, 2010 at 2:58 pm #

    It would appear they have no rear-end. What did they do? Cut it off??

  26. Phyllis April 30, 2010 at 3:04 pm #

    Yeah I got that – its still badly sewn and a stupid design *detail*

  27. Beth April 30, 2010 at 6:20 pm #

    I like how the product page describes the copper rivets as ‘distressed.’ I have no doubt they are. As in “OMG, what am I doing in this nightmare? I just wanted to grow up and decorate a nice pair of Levis!”

  28. raincoaster May 1, 2010 at 12:52 am #

    I think Beth wins.

  29. Bronwyn May 1, 2010 at 9:43 am #

    Looks like Auschwitz. Why would anyone FAKE a 10 inch gap between the thighs.

  30. Karen May 1, 2010 at 11:47 pm #

    Something went wrong with our patterning in the sewing dept, so we now have these fugly things to try and flog to the unsuspecting…any takers???

    You’re unquestionably correct on this writing!!
