Elle MacPherson - first she has a ganglion, now she thinks she is a teenager
Normally this wouldn't be a problem, except that the normally stylish Elle had what is in my opinion a fashion "Faux pas" when she attended the shows launch party wearing shinny leggings which are already hanging in the wardrobes of the under 30's across the land from last season!
OK, so the pvc leggings may be designed by Karl Lagerfield and come from next seasons collection, but forgive me if I'm wrong, but haven't these been around for a while now Karl? I know two of my daughters already have pairs like this, which is why at 47, Elle should so NOT be wearing them, just because she can!
Surely us "forty somethings" need to take inspiration from strong stylish women who know how to dress for their age, (says I who have just bought Jelly sandals - gulp, well they were Jimmy Choo) not from women closer to fifty than forty, who go out dressed like teenagers! Sure I love the top and the Louboutins, but put the whole outfit on somebody under forty please! In most cases, women in our age group, would be described as "mutton" going out in trousers like these!
I of course would invest in pair, but am afraid I would be offered a contract with Michelin......
So come on ladies, even if you don't normally comment, please let me know if at 47 you would wear these or if younger readers feel these are age appropriate, what do you all honestly think?
