Gwyneth Paltrow and a Voguette
After Ac.Stet met up with a friend with a potential contact in fash-publishing, Ac.Stet went ’round the Waverly|Gay St. corner of my block for a iced cuppa java. Ac.Stet was queueing up behind this really lanky lady in this red-white print wrap-top with this swoop-plunge at the back. Hmmm, nothing ground-breaking by way of fashion-styling … but then again, it really accentuated her swan-neck. She turned around and then it hit Ac.Stet square on the face: BOOMPF!!
She’s god-damned Gwyneth Paltrow!
Okay, it will not be a common thing for Acrylic Stetson to be star-strucked in this blog but god-damned Gwyneth Paltrow is intricately linked to fashion.
Ac.Stet see this as a good sign from the gods above.That the fashion planets like Wintourius, Liztiberius, Vreelandius, Coddingtonus and so on and so forth, are aligned in such a way that the apparition of Paltrow is a sign that Ac.Stet must have done something good and Ac.Stet’s prayers have been answered.
Later in the day, on Ac.Stet’s way back from the Metropolitan Museum of Art (yeah, was there to check out Frank Stella and the African Arts Gallery), was on the same train as this Voguette in this plain black sack dress, with her wrists and neck clustered with gold (fake) and lucite (maybe plastic) tchotchkes. Well, apart from the fact that she was dressed as one of those cloned magaziney looks, she was carrying this huge brown bag with a white sticker on it that says “Vogue … A** Ch* ..”
So, that, is yet another sign of that Ac.Stet may finally find a second career wind in clothedom.
