Hey Bombshells!
Adriana here, and besides checking out all the crazy post-holiday sales, I’ve been thinking about which 2008 fashion trends we should leave firmly behind and which should follow us into the new year. 2008 gave us quite a few fads. Let’s take a look:
Statement Bags on Red Carpets:


I love a statement bag but think they speak best when toted on the way to work or during a weekend afternoon of errands–not at an awards show. Leave it in ’08!
Nerd Glasses on Dudes:

I might be one of the very few to say this: personally, I dug this trend (though will admit it did get slightly played out) and admire when guys step away from the BAPE t-shirt and retro Air Jordans uniform. Take the trend to ’09!
Rihanna’s Vamp Swagger:

It’s true: imitation is one of the highest forms of flattery. But you know it’s bad when even superstars like Beyonce start to copy pop’s reigning fashion queen. Stars and stylists have enough fabulousness of their own (that’s why they do what they do!) to come up with more original and personalized looks. Let’s leave it in ’08 and hopefully find other ways to be edgy in ’09. Which leads us to Emerging Stylistas:
’08 saw lots of stars come out of the fashion closet and step their game up fiercely. Keyshia Cole, Cassie, Keri Hilson, and Solange are just some of the divas who put themselves on the style map with fresh looks that were fashionable and distinct. We need more originals: let’s take it with us to ’09!
Also in ’08: celebrity clothing lines, Herve Leger dresses, stars. vs. models on fashion magazine covers. Which could you take or leave?
