Ladyhawke in hoody at the VNZMA /Stuff
Yesterday the New Zealand man's lack of sartorial savoir was picked apart, so today let's take a look at the ladies. I had a bit of a rant on George FM this morning about the shoddy effort put in by the Kiwis at the music awards. Specifically, all the ladies who went around in pants (oh, and gentleman, a mismatched black blazer and black jeans does not constitute a suit). An awards ceremony is supposed to be a dress up, formal event. But our top female vocalists weren't phased by anything so light hearted as a dress code. Ladyhawke - jeans and a hoody. Brooke Fraser - black pants. Gin Wigmore - jeans. Anika Moa - jeans and no shoes. I mean come on! How hard is it to wear a dress? Or at least take a leaf out of our favourite ex prime minister Helen Clarke's book and wear a damn pantsuit if you're that way inclined.
So what's going on? Do we lack a good enough selection of pretty dresses?
Does the New Zealand woman dress badly?
Girls - do you find it difficult to shop in New Zealand?
How does Glassons compare to international chainstores?
Can you buy good heels here?
Are jeans really suitable for going out?
Do you lack a selection of stylish women to look up to for style inspiration?
Why do you insist on wearing tights/leggings as pants? They're not pants! Hide the gusset!
Answer below, dear readers.
I LIKE YOU!
