Fabulous Fashion Advice: I have the “I don’t want tos” November 12, 2008

Does anyone other than me every get the “I don’t want tos”?  For those of you who don’t know what that means…it means that you wake up in the morning and you just don’t feel like doing ANYTHING!  That’s how I feel this morning.  I live downtown Franklin, it’s a very very historic area, it feels like I’m in a Norman Rockwell painting.  Anyway, I went outside and it’s just a really sleepy day.  It’s overcast and I just don’t want to do anything but sit on the couch and watch Home Alone.  Having the “I don’t want tos” suck!  BUT…while I was sitting here in my chair watching tv I saw Annie Leibovitz (she’s photographed some of the most famous people on earth…Queen Elizabeth, The Rolling Stones, Miley Cyrus, John Lennon, etc…) on the Today show.  She was speaking about her new book: Annie Leibovitz At Work.  I’m thinking I might need this book.  It showcases some of her most famous photos and then tells the story behind the photo shoot.  I have a feeling this could be really interesting.  Anyway, as I was watching her I realized that she doesn’t really look like she “has it together”.  You know what I mean?  She is the extremely successful photographer but her appearance on the show made her look like she had just come off the street.  I mean I get the whole “I have a creative personality” thing but come on!…get it together.  Her hair was all stringy, her makeup looked like it was 2 days old and she wore something so blah I can’t even remember what it looked like.  Now…I’ve never been on the Today Show but I would think that this would be something that you would want to put forth some effort to look good for?!  IF people even know who she is…unless you are in the fashion world you may not know her…I can promise you that they turned on the Today Show, saw her, and decided to go get some cereal while “the chick who takes pics for that magazine” was babbling about her pictures.  I think that’s sad.  What can you expect though…I mean my goodness, she looked HORRIBLE!  People really should take pride in themselves.  That goes to show you that it’s not MONEY that makes a person Fabulous because I can promise you she has butt loads of money.  So my advice to you…even when you have the “I don’t want tos” at least put forth some effort.  You may not be going on the Today show but the world is your stage and you HAVE to look FABULOUS!  SO…take the time and make yourself look and feel great!!  Don’t be “what’s her name that always has the stringy hair”!  Remember…BE FABULOUS!!!!!!!!

    Just FYI… Annie Leibovitz is the most talented artist alive today. We are fortunate to be in a time of history where we can have relations, although it be via television, with a Michelangelo or DaVinci of photography. She doesn’t have to try hard to be beautiful on the outside. It doesn’t matter. She will be remembered forever for what she is on the inside and for allowing us to have a special glimpse of that talent, that vision.

    You are absolutely right…she is extremely talented…by far one of the best in the biz. I appreciate what she has done and what she means to the world of photography because it’s not just a picture…it’s art. HOWEVER…I still stand by my observation…I wish she would take more pride in herself. I get the whole “artist” thing…and that’s fine when she’s on the job doing a shoot or what have you but on The Today Show…No…she should have put her best foot forward. So while I do respect her as one of the worlds most incredible talents…she could still use a makeover. Her outside should match her insides. She’s a beautiful person on the inside and I wish someone would help her translate that to her outward appearance.
