Howdy and Hello readers! My name is Clinton Kelly and I am nomorefan's favorite fashion expert. She seems to be very popular around here. Anywhoooo, SkewerMistress asked me to host the Skeptic Fashion Week Recap. I couldn't be more flattered. I even dressed like Keith Urban for the occasion!
I'm going to walk you through a set of photos taken during one wild and crazy weekend.
The Location: Nashville
The Look: Imitation Perfect Mom & Wannabe Groupie Chic
The Goal: Clothes presented in a real live environment with anonymous models. The designers also wanted to remain anonymous.
Listen to the track below as we follow the gals along on their adventure!
We decided to throw our models straight into the heart of what Nashville is known for, country music. This model surprised us at the Keith Urban concert by whipping out her own wristband!
Primed and ready at the railing to pounce when Urban goes by, the ladies are sporting the latest in over-40 concert fashion. Note the plunging necklines and a camera bag for authenticity. Show us some leg ladies! Nice!
The next morning at the hotel we let our models turn the cameras on themselves. A morning modeling session wouldn't be complete without a Charlie's Angels tribute!
After breakfast we let our models loose on the town. Here we have them dressed in identical fancy applique tops to show the versatility of an affordable buy paired with Mom Jean or Khaki shorts or slimming black pants. Who needs a shirt that costs more then $5? Our ladies are indeed Social Butterflies!
Here's the latest in country music Meet N' Greet Over-40 fashion. Our model on the left is sporting a too-tight slightly see-through top and matching white pants. Note the design to draw the eye to the chest area. Our model on the right is bringing sassy country to the table in a khaki miniskirt, blindingly bright skin-tight top and a white sweater to cover it all up. After all we wouldn't want the celebrities to get the wrong idea. For an extra $1.50 spring for the version of the top our model is wearing with the decoration around the neckline. You won't regret it!>
We shift gears here and our next shoot is Perfect Moms Lunching. The models are in drab olive, strange orange pattern, and plain white. Image is everything. Despite the models love for a dirty joke and an adult beverage, these outfits say "We live to serve". All husbands and children should be so lucky! The model on the left threw on a flashy gold bracelet against the photographer's wishes. Perfect moms would never be so bold but you know our models! They have minds unlike any other. You can't stop them, you can only hope to contain them!
So after a long afternoon nap and some major internet time, our models were ready for partying, Nashvegas-style. Our models chose their own outfits and can we say they've made some bold choices. An indescribable camoflage print, electric blue sleeveless top with decoration around the bust, another bright blue lowcut top and a green tank. Does someone want to get lucky? Pay particular attention to the cutting edge haircuts our models are sporting. Don't try this at home readers!
One of our models decided to play wallflower. She's got the Granny look down to a T, wouldn't you say?
After a few hours a couple of the models got restless...and frisky. But the photographer took advantage so that we can see the detail on this top. Lucky us! Inspired by old lawn furniture, this top takes beige to the next level. A piece like this can only bring out a woman's best features. A must buy for the season!
Two of the models managed to escape outside after changing outfits. But you can't hide in a neon pink top! The light acid blue butt-hugging jeans are perfect for that statue that begs to be sat on, and don't we all have one of those! He looks very happy and might that be due to our model on the left? You decide!
Once we got them back inside, the women wanted to challenge themselves with some advanced modeling. Modeling with props. And can we say they get an F for Fabulous! Such attitude! Such style! They attack those drinks with vim and vigor. Our model on the left is a study in white complete with a Brad Pitt chapeau. Our model on the right is a study in beige, challenging convention with brown against her sun-kissed skin. The ladies highlight their ensembles with 1980's Wet Slicks nail polish in Fire Engine Red. The model on the right is letting her pride and joy show....her perfectly molded hair. Way to go ladies!
More mugging for the cameras. The ladies are bringing "the street" and "the hood" to the Mother'hood. Look at that tongue work. You can't get more edgy or relevant than this!
Before the night is over, our models had to leave their mark. Once again, these women do whatever it takes to make sure everyone had a good time. Who doesn't love drunken fondling and contorted faces. Whatever it takes is their motto and they do deliver. What would you pay for a night like this? A buck, a buck fifty? The set crew got all this for free, on the job. Priceless!
We hate to disappoint but Skeptic Fashion Week only lasted two days. After all, our models are older and they wear out easily. But our photographer managed to get one last photo on the bus. It wasn't the bus she wanted to get on, but it was the bus home. Ever the trooper she flashed us her street cred even while passed out. She's back to the see-through top just in case someone catches her eye at a truck stop. Those models, always looking their best, even on the road.
Our photo sessions were so successful the look is sweeping the nation. Here's a famous supermodel trying out the Skeptic look.
Uhhhhh, on second thought we may need to rethink the whole concept.
While we get things sorted, let me just say What Not To Wear is looking really good right now. I'm outta here!
Stacy.....hold me! I'm scared!
