INTRODUCTION

THE ATROCITIES I’VE SEEN

I mean, seriously, sometimes I’m surprised I haven’t already gouged out my own eyes. Truth be told, I did come pretty damn close once. I was in Pittsburgh, at the airport, or maybe it was Cincinnati. Doesn’t matter, really. There I was, just minding my own business, reading the newspaper and waiting for my flight to board, when a couple of women approached me.

“Are you Clinton?” one of them asked.

This question always kind of bugs me. You know it’s me. Just say hello and go back to your quadruple mocha latte. “Yep,” I replied, and looked up to see two of the most horrific outfits imaginable. Both women—both—were wearing horizontal-striped turtlenecks tucked into high-waisted Mom Jeans with white cross-trainers.

“We love your show!” said one.

“We watch it all the time!” declared the other.

I smiled and said thank you, because I’m a gentleman. But inside my little head, I screamed to the heavens with all my might: Why, God! Why do you hate me so much!

Maybe I get a tad exasperated from time to time, but certainly you can understand why. I’ve spent the good part of a decade explaining, with as much patience as I could muster, why you shouldn’t pair socks with sandals, why you might want to avoid tube tops after the age of forty, why elastic-waist pants are evil incarnate. But, evidently, not everyone is listening.

Still, I continue on with my mission to make America a more beautiful place. I’m like that Native American dude from the commercial who cries when he sees people litter. Except, I’m not crying. It’s more like I’m laughing at you. In fact, he’s laughing at you too. We’re having gin and tonics right now, and I was just telling him that your outfit was revolting. And you know what he said?

“And how.”

And how! Couldn’t you just die? I almost peed my pants a little.

Von Erika Maria am 8. Januar 2016
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Es werden allgemeine Fashionfauxpas aufgelistet, wie etwa tragen sie keine Querstreifen und Tätowierungen auf dem unteren Rücken so wie Unterwäsche sollten bei der Arbeit nicht hervorblitzen. Im Großen und Ganzen hat das Buch bei mir nach dem Lesen kein gutes Gefühl hinterlassen, da man nun weiß was alles seiner Meinung nach nicht gut aussieht, jedoch für mich Tipps, was man nun anziehen soll fehlen.
Etwa anzumerken, dass eine Tätowierung beim Tragen eines eleganteren Kleides nicht vorteilhaft aussieht hilft jmd. mit einer Tätowierung nicht viel, sinnvoll wären Tipps wie man mit so einer Situation umgehen kann, etwa Tipps zu Schnitten und Farben von Kleidern, die auch Personen mit Tätowierungen gut stehen.
Hingegen reaktiv (!) viele Tipps finden sich zu Jeans und wie lang genau eine Hose eines bestimmten Schnittes sein soll, und auch zu Sitz und Passform.
Generell schießt er bei seiner Kritik meiner Meinung nach gehörig über das Ziel hinaus, wie etwa bei rotem Lippenstift.
Das bei rotem Lippenstift auf das weiß der Zähne achtzugeben ist, erscheint sinnvoll, jedoch jmd. mit schmalen Lippen und jmd. mit vollen Lippen vom Verwenden eines rotem Lippenstiftes generell abzuraten erscheint doch ziemlich pauschal.
Meine Erwartungen wurden nicht erfüllt. Ich würde es nicht empfehlen.

HASH(0xa0328dec) von 5 Sternen "The atrocities I've seen." 27. Oktober 2010
Von E. Bukowsky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you hate politically incorrect humor, do not read Clinton Kelly's "Oh No, She Didn't." It will infuriate you and, if you regularly commit "the top 100 style mistakes" that Kelly derides, you may find yourself wincing and/or rushing home to change. However, if you don't care that much about your appearance, always look great, or really want to know what Kelly thinks, you can relax and approach this book as the riotous spoof that, on some level, it is meant to be. Not knowing Mr. Kelly through his reality television show, "What Not to Wear," I cannot be sure that he is not a mean-spirited cur. However, I do know that "Oh No, She Didn't" reduced me and a colleague to fits of helpless laughter.

Complete with full-color portraits of ladies wearing less than flattering undergarments and unwisely baring their assets, flip-flops being immolated (I hate flip-flops), someone blithely hailing a cab wearing what appears to be her pajamas, hirsute legs with panty hose, and other scary sights, "Oh No, She Didn't" is a photo album for non-fashionistas. Who cares that Kelly thinks calf-length skirts pigeonhole you as belonging to a "religious cult"; that tent dresses resemble "two curtains sewn together at the top and sides, with holes for the arms and head"; that turtlenecks choke you and generally make you look short and squat; and that frosting is for cake, not hair? No one can stop you from wearing t-shirts with silly logos, horizontal stripes (even though you have a bit of a paunch), or cross-trainers if you feel like it. We live in America, after all, land of the free and home of the brazen.

Some will say that Clinton Kelly is mean, profane, opinionated, intolerant, and sarcastic, and they would be absolutely justified in their assessment. Whatever you think of Kelly as a human being and regardless of your opinions about his style tips, you may get a kick out of the wildly irreverent "Oh No, She Didn't."

HASH(0xa0bdc1e0) von 5 Sternen Laugh Out Loud Funny 8. Oktober 2010
Von E. DeArdo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Anyone who has seen TLC's "What Not To Wear" knows what to expect from Clinton--acerbic comments about the "before" wardrobe and a take-no-prisoners approach to the creation of the new wardrobe, all done with affection. This book, which chronicles the 100 top fashion mistakes women make, is in the same vein.
Now, if you're reading this book, you probably care about what you wear and how you present yourself, so hopefully you won't find that you are making too many of these mistakes! But in any case, Clinton gives valuable fashion tips, tailoring advice, and even make-up tips courtesy of Carmindy, the show's makeup artist. These are interspersed with comic takedowns of women who wear PJs to the supermarket (written as a screenplay), women who wear flip-flops outside the beach or pool setting, the dress that looks like a dish towel, and scary nail polish colors. So even if you find yourself being skewered for wearing that Disney World Minnie Mouse t-shirt, you'll be laughing.

HASH(0xa0bda78c) von 5 Sternen crude, rude, and snarky 3. Dezember 2010
Von Lauren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I like(d) Clinton in "What Not to Wear," but if this book is a reflection of his true personality (and he's been doing book signings to promote it...), I am very disappointed. It's crude, mean, trash-talking (yes, I expected some given the title, but not of this ilk), and demeaning. It's as bad as judging a woman's personality by her weight -- he's judging someone's personality based on style, or lack thereof. So very, very shallow. He's not just pointing out things like "mom jeans" (sure, they're not great), but he's insulting the wearers of them personally. The name calling and snarky remarks are way out of line.

Lastly, I would definitely not recommend this to any young girls or teens - too crude.

HASH(0xa03463b4) von 5 Sternen Oh No HE didn't. 18. November 2010
Von Lorelei Deep - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Mr. Kelly. Kindness is a stylish thing to wear on a daily basis. This book is snarky and mean, while offering advice that is condescending and can be gleaned from nicer magazines or a quick google search. Beautiful people are nice whether they are fashionable or not. I know you meant to be funny, but you were instead offensive. I hope when you are old and in a non-fashionable senior citizen state, you have nurses that are kinder to you than you are to women now. For me, the most beautiful stylish people are the ones with the biggest hearts. Looking down on others is never stylish.

HASH(0xa034654c) von 5 Sternen Yeah, it was a little mean 9. Dezember 2010
Von AmbersFinder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am sure that the snarky tone of the writing in this book was meant to be humorous, but because it is so unrelenting it just seems mean. I can only guess there are two audiences for this book: those who dress badly and want to be made to feel bad about themselves and those who dress stylishly and want to make fun of others. Many of the faux pas styles mentioned in the book I agree with and some I think he is wrong about, but they all seem to be delievered with the message that if you break the rules you are not a worthwhile human being. Here is a list of things he doesn't like:

the color pink
the color black
the color white
the color beige
a white shirt with a black pair of pants
solid colors of various colors worn on consecutive days
colored suits
rainbow mother rings bought at the mall
earings that match necklaces
You get the idea.

All of the people who wear these things get the same scathing treatment that he gives to those who wear visible thongs.
