Dixie Ick

The Dixie Chicks haven’t been in the public eye in quite some time…and apparently for good reason. The Chick’s lead singer Natalie Maines popped up at the premiere of the newest Pirates of The Caribbean movie (Really? Another one?) looking frumpy and unimpressive. Cowboy take her away indeed. Far, far away.

Natalie Maines Pirates Premiere

Oh the mundanity! Maybe the trench could have worked in a different context, other than the saggy pocket which I can only assume is filled with car keys, saltine packets, snot covered tissues and a juice box (or perhaps golden treasure?). This look screams “suburban mom after a spending spree at Kohls”. White capri pants, Natalie? Unless they are some homage to the pantaloons worn by pirates of yore, they are simply unacceptable. Overall, she looks stumpy, dowdy, and fit for an Outlet Mall. Which coincidentally was probably the last location I heard a Dixie Chicks song.

    Perhaps someone should go have a little quiet time until she feels a little less nastily, gratuitously bitchy.

    Wasn’t Natalie always fashion challenged? It looks like an apple in her pocket. That’s my guess.

    Poor Natalie Maines….she’s obviously no match for the likes of some snotty blogger who feels she has to make a snarky point to be a cool kid in the blogworld.

    Agreed. This is a gratuitously nasty post, not funny, and in my opinion, unworthy of the Manolosphere.

    @Jezebella,@Jane2 well put. I agree completely with y’all and I can’t improve on your delivery. Let’s hope for better

    You all beat me to it. Nasty post. NOT evidence of the “razor sharp wit” Trisha Marie would like us to believe she possesses.

    Not that this post deserves the dignity of a reply, but I think this woman looks just fine for where she is. It looks like some sort of sports event or something similar, and she is certainly just as well dressed as the people around her, if not better.

    Wearing ostentatiously fashionable clothes to such an event would be pretty tacky/trashy to my mind. No doubt that is what Trisha Marie would do however.

    While that coat has a very strange hemline… she’s at Disneyland with her family. Compared to the tens of thousands of other people there, she looks fine. What was the weather forecast? Did they expect rain?

    Criticize the content of the post, fine. Free country and all that. Odd, however, to take the young lady to task for nastiness and then engage in the very behavior one has just deplored.

    It’s all a matter of context.

    Here’s another shot from the same event showing Maine….she’s attending the event with her husband and two young children. Not at Fashion Week.


    Likewise I have not seen any death threats against the blogger for her tacky comments, unlike the many Natalie Maine received

    Oh, come on–Natalie looks terrible: the chopped-off hair, that weird, saggy coat pocket, the dowdy shoes, the white capris (why do women wear white pants, which the tiniest stain immediately renders disgusting?). This is supposed to be a fashion blog, but I think that a wee bit of politics has inappropriately interjected itself.

      There are thousands of fashion blogs out there where people are sniped at unmercifully. I for one don’t read those. I read Manolo because he is never snarky for the sake of it. He pokes gentle amusing fun at those who ask for it, but those who don’t are left alone. People who are out for the day with their family, with pockets full of all the junk needed on such occasions, are not setting themselves up as fashion icons and are not asking for a critique on their fashion sense. When out with kids you dress for comfort and convenience.

        “When out with kids you dress for comfort and convenience.”

        Not if you’re Victoria Beckham.

    Hey, what’s wrong with Kohls?

    In all seriousness, I am going to take fiddle lessons this summer so that I can play “Cowboy, take me away.” (And then I will attempt “Orange Blossom Special.”)

    You’ve been to an outlet mall? Ick.
