From this article, Polygamist Women, I read the below two snippets and laughed my ass off. In fact, I do believe these could be the most hilarious things I've ever read in my life:
Polygamist Women Set Their Own Style, Celebrity stylist Ted Gibson said the women's unique hairdo gives off a "homely" impression. "It says 'I don't really care very much. I really don't have time to worry about the way that I look, because I have 20 children,'" he said. "He's going from wife to wife to wife, so why should I look any better than the other ones?"
The idea of a celebrity stylist being called to comment on polygamist fashion is as obscene as what's next, a reality makeover show. And we all know it's right around the corner. I predict Lips Rinna will host with Carson (from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy).
Anyway, it seems to me that if anyone was called to comment on polyfashionistas, it should've been students of polygamy, like, oh, I don't know, an anthropologist, maybe a theologian or two, and the odd historian. Fashion is only one aspect of the tragic and sad, cry-for-help that is this particular cult of polygamy.
When I read this, after reading the above, I screamed. Seriously, I did. Will polygamist fashions have any influence on mainstream style? Prairie skirts are in fashion this season, while dusty pastels and neutrals are being introduced to offset trendy bold colors and patterns.
