Political Consultant and Sartorialist Roger Stone on Year's Best and Worst Dressed
Here's some respite for Tallahassee and Washington watchers temporarily fed up with post-election politics:
"StoneZone's Sixth Annual Ten Best and Worst Dressed Men and Women in the World for 2012" (Huffington Post). Definitely a nonpartisan undertaking.
Trust dapper Roger Stone, indeed a legendary American Republican political consultant, to suck us so engagingly into his second (or is it his first?) greatest passion, sartorial elegance.
On this year's just-released "Best" list, among others, are Shannon Sharpe, Bill Clinton, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Jay-Z, Michelle Obama, Pippa and Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham and Jessica Biel.
Classic descriptions throughout. But Stone saves his best for the list's "Worsts:"
Christina Aguilera: "You could see the girl's ass from outer space."
Katy Perry: "A fashion car crash."
Julianne Moore: "Sadly, this actress has no sense of coordination and can’t piece together an outfit to save her life. An embarrassment. God-awful."
Taylor Momsen: "Is this actress-musician trying to do grunge and Goth at the same time? Why does Taylor insist on wearing lingerie as outerwear?"
Jesse Ventura: "He literally looks homeless."
Roland Martin: "He dresses like a pimp."
Larry King: "Thank God this man is done in primetime."
Michael Moore: (For the documentary filmmaker, just one word) "Slob."
And, by the way, Stone's release of this year's "Best" and "Worst" list coincides with his launch of stonestyle.com, a web site that gives him another showcase for his ideas on style. Be sure to check out the James Bond-style portrait of the writer.
