We’ve all seen Jennifer Lopez with a spring in her step and a tag on her cloak.
Everyone had a good smile over the photo of Jennifer Lopez, resplendent in turquoise, Venice Fashion Show chic, being escorted into the Dolce & Gabanna event with the clothes tag still very visible on the inside of her cloak. Surely, it’s the celebrity equivalent of leaving the house with toilet paper stuck to the heel of your shoe or, much worse, dangling from the waistband of your pants!
Was it a humiliating moment for JLo or did it reinforce the absurd notion that Jenny from the Block is just like us?
Remember Minnie Pearl, the country comedian who appeared at the Grand Ole Opry? She was famous for the tag hanging from her straw hat. Of course, no one wanted to take their red carpet fashion tips from Minnie Pearl, but far more stylish celebrities have also done it. If the trend continues, it might just become a fashion statement.
Let’s see who wore the tag best. Here’s Meghan Markle, prince on her arm and tag on her dress.
That white suit of Georgina’s reminds me of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. Should he have worn a tag, when striking the famous, fingerpointing poise?
Oooh. Nina Dobrev is stymied by the tag from behind. I hate when that happens. Most of us just look at the front when we scurry past the mirror as we hurry out the door. How are we supposed to know what’s going on behind us.
Robin Tunney’s $4000 tag faux pas. But seriously, how can that be embarrassing? What’s embarrassing is me trying to make every one thing I’m in a Diane Furstenberg wrap when it’s really a $29.95 knock off from Target. I’d flaunt a $4k tag proudly. Maybe that’s what Tunney was doing, too.
And last but not least, there’s Sacha Baron Cohen and we all know he did it on purpose, which is all the proof you need that tags are an upcoming trend, already being spoofed by satirists.
Get on board. Make your own fashion statement. Don’t toss the tag. Wave them proudly. And when tags become passe, you know what the next trend should be? Wearing your clothes on backward! Oh wait, I believe that was already done in the seventies.
