I Do Not Like This Fashion Trend; I Want This Fashion Trend to End! - LBF

Channeling a little Dr. Seuss this morning because WHY NOT?  When something is silly and meaningless, invoking the dear Doctor S is appropriate.

And today's silly and meaningless subject is the fashion trend sweeping the nation - or at least the awards shows.

Call it the Lazarus of Lace, the Resurrection of Rayon, the Second Act of Silk. I CALL it an attack on women.

Behold:

Did y'all notice that @reba wore THE SAME DRESS that she wore to perform #DoesHeLoveYou back in 1993?? She still looks great and was awesome as @acmawards host last night! #queen #thedress #acmawards #reba

Yes, it's the same dress. Reba. You can wear the same dress you wore 25 years ago.

GET THE WOMAN A NOBEL PEACE PRIZE. (For the record, I love Reba.)

BUT! This isn't the only time a star has unearthed a frock from the back of the closet.

Here's Rita Moreno at the Oscars this year:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look familiar? That's because it's the same dress she wore in 1962:

ANYWAY.

A few years ago I tried on my prom dress from 1989 and it was one of the BIGGEST MISTAKES OF MY LIFE.

Hollywood, PLEASE don't do this to us. It's bad enough you torture us with unattainable homes, vacations, cars and skin. Don't make us compete with both that and our younger selves - and the dresses we wore then.
