Goony Bird Helps Out

goony-bird-ruining-aw-dress

I have seen this dress by Alexander Wang EVERYWHERE in the last few days, and even though it’s beyond my means and spoiled-by-association re Erin Wasson, I have coveted it. Blue sequins = heaven.

But one look at Goony Bird wearing it and I’m over it! She’s ruined it for me.

Thank you, Goony Bird!   Go here for more of her distinctive posing.

    you’re right…models should know how to present a dress that will make consumers want to buy it.

  2. arline Says:

    Agreed.

  3. my favorite and my best Says:

    totally agree. also please note the weirdness of her feet in those shoes that look like medieval torture devices.

  4. sarah.p Says:

    She looks a little bit like she’s keeping her legs apart because she’s wet herself.

  5. Mrs. Shreck Says:

    You are so much better than this dress. You should never wear anything not custom made for you. I’m sorry. I love you.

  6. Iheartfashion Says:

    She looks like she’s in pain.

  7. Ann Says:

    Something in her pose or posture is eliciting very strong feelings of sympathy for her. I don’t know what it is, but she looks pathetic and it’s making me sad. I think it’s my Xanax and champagne hangover.

  8. Vee Says:

    She reminds me of Katie Holmes – her zonked out eyes betray her pathetic attempt at a smile below. Both of those poor girls always look as though someone has given them a good bonk on the head with a club and forced them to pose right afterward.

  9. Brooke Says:

    there’s something about that awkward, hip jutting pose she’s doing in one of the other pictures that just fills me with a hatred for Goony Bird that i feel oddly guilty about. Sadly Sister Wolf we may be in the same boat here… I did quite like the dress but GB fucked it up for me.
    A PLAGUE ON THE HOUSE OF SHOPBOP !!

    Maybe because she looks so lost and pathetic, she draws out the maternal instincts and empathy from average costumer. What if this is a cunning marketing trick? I smell a conspiracy…

    On further note, we are NOT an average costumer, that is why the trick doesn’t work on us!
    I’m not so impressed with the dress either, but I’m not sayin’ why…

  11. Make Do Style Says:

    I think you should issue a reference and photo fit so I can keep up with all this dreadful posing and sad models’ names! She looks all hunchy and possessed in some way

  12. WendyB Says:

    Wow, I STILL like that dress! Haven’t seen it before though, so it’s fresh to me.

  13. Alicia Says:

    She looks as if she’s about to fall forward and is bracing herself while still trying to maintain a serene/stoic/pensive face…

    Or maybe she’s a goony bird.

  14. andrea Says:

    She looks like she just soiled herself. If not, then she is not a very good model (ha)- very uncomfortable in her skin. And how could shopbop use someone like her? Aren’t they wanting to SELL clothes and make a profit?

  15. annemarie Says:

    This is the stance of someone who just walked in on their boyfriend shagging another woman.

    Sequins are scratchy. She could rip it off and whip their naked arses with it. That would probably hurt, draw a little blood even.

    Maybe that’s the selling pitch Shopbop were going for.

  16. Bevitron Says:

    I support all the theories that say she looks like she’s pissed/pooped herself. And boy, those shoes DO look like some kind of weird torturing legiron devices – yikes! Other than that it looks like her mother just told her “You’re not going to any damn party ’till you get that grout bleached & the toilet scrubbed!”

  17. liz w Says:

    Ugh, what an awkward model. She looks like a giraffe wearing a dress.

  18. OMGGMAB Says:

    I’m with you, Bevitron. Obviously, she had not time for her hair either. She needs to be grounded.

  19. Susan Says:

    I agree with Sarah P – looks like Goony Bird has peed down her leg. The dress is great, but your curious obsession with this vacant looking model is a little worrying – but, never mind, we love your madness and your crazy blog x

  20. JK Says:

    Is that what they call “knock-kneed?”

  21. Jill Says:

    I love the dress…I love that it’s not black and I think you would be one hot tamale in it!

  22. fashionherald Says:

    I still like the dress too, but wish she would make it look as good as it should. I can’t wait till models go back to posing, and are done with this awkward “who cares/I’m so cool” thing. I don’t care about you, show me how fabulous I can look in that dress!

  23. Vee Says:

    Oh, Sister Wolf, it is quite late where I am in the east coast, but I cannot sleep because a hipster band lives next door, a dreadful one like the one you posted before with the banjo and the horrible singing girl and the bad dance moves. They are playing something that sounds like 3 year olds with pots and pans and a dying cat…
    I pray for patience, Sister.

  24. Dru Says:

    It’s highly unlikely that ANYONE would want to buy that dress after seeing it on a girl who looked like she didn’t make it to the loo in time while wearing it…shame, because the sequins and draping look lovely.

  25. Godammit, I’m Mad! » Blog Archive » Finding My Niche Says:

    [...] could let readers vote on what I have to buy and model! I could try to pose like Goony Bird! I could glower like Starvng Girl! I could wear rompers and sequin shorts! The possibilities are [...]
