CELEBRITY CRAY CRAY Is it a cliché that we're sinking into the prostrate of celebrity famed culture? are we drugged into this neon lited celebrity fame engrossed coma, I like anyone else can be fascinated by the lives of the celebrities, curious to know what they wear, how they live, and even to who's dating who, but is it just me who finds the lurking of celebrity gossip into serious news broadcasts disturbing. Are we like the Ancient Romans who made celebrities out of gladiators and like them idolise celebs when they're popular, pry when they're suffering, jeer when they make a mistake and revel when they sometimes look stupid and make judgement on every morsel of there being. Celebrity fame culture has a place its fun in moderation but it can be lethal if its all we consume.
Although I prefer to keep this blog mainly celebrity circus free, as there's plenty of it everywhere else to keep us quenched. I'm going to briefly muse about a celebrity who's not widely known called Nicola Roberts, who's from a pop girl band in the U.K. Nicola has always faced rough treatment from the media and critics, she has been known as 'The Ugly One' from the group... nice huh!....I have to admit I don't really care for her music, but I've noticed over the past few years she has gotten a taste for some unique vintage styled apparel, which has still been mocked by the tabloids, and I thought you know, why not post about someone who is not widely recognised and not favored for her dress sense by many. See what you think..
Looks very demure lady like inspired by the 1950's -1960's vintage look and has embraced her naturally pale skin and is wearing the sheer knee socks with open shoes, which no doubt we will see many folks wearing.
