Oh Georgie…

Georgie Thompson’s role in the Sky Sports Sky Pad is probably to serve as “eye candy” for the male viewers. Cause she doesn’t really add any valuable comments or insights. In fact most of her comments are so meaningless I might as well be up there with Anthony Davidson. However “eye candy” is relative and I don’t find Georgie to be eye candy at all. Don’t get me wrong, Georgie isn’t ugly, her clothes are ugly.

Seriously.

I mean it.

That woman needs a stylist stat (me, perhaps? ;)). Let’s take a look at what she wore at Monza on race day:

As I’ve pointed out on my screen cap, there are many things wrong with Georgie’s look. First of all, her hair was HORRIBLE. Don’t they have hair stylists over there at Sky Sports? Come on, Lee McKenzie would never appear on the BBC looking so haphazard. It was just a mess and Georgie looked like she rolled out of bed 15 minutes ago, freaked out, grabbed the nearest hair tie (which happened to be YELLOW by the way), put her hair up and ran to the studio.

I’m pretty sure both men and women can agree that Georgie’s dress was simply horrible on many levels. The cutout bodice was sort of strange. While the cutout does drew the eye to her bust, the shape was reminiscent of a “no sign.” Such as NO SMOKING. Or NO PARKING. Basically any sort of sign with a slash through it. In other words, please do not replicate this look. Ever. Just don’t do it. And the dress was too tight. WAY too tight. It was so tight, Georgie’s muffin top was bursting through (gross, I know…).

Remember my previous post about the history of clothing sizes? Today I shall illustrate an example of poor fit with Georgie Thompson’s help. -_-;

Some people do not know what constitutes good and poor fit. Let me tell you, you don’t need a clothes whisperer or anything. Your clothes can “talk”… you just have to be able to understand what they are saying. Once you do, you will realize they may be screaming at you “HEY IT DOESN’T FIT! HELP ME!!!”… such is the case below:

Wrinkling and ripples in clothing are key indicators of poor fit. It means the clothes are too small for your body in a certain area. Sometimes the clothes will pull in such a way that it will look like arrows, pointing to the area of poor fit (such as the crotch!). In Georgie’s case, all of the ripple action is happening at the waist and hips. While the dress fits at the bust, it is pretty much saying “Georgie your waist/hips are too big for me.” The reason why the dress ripples is because the dress is shifting up to accomodate Georgie’s waist/hips. Does that make sense? If her hips were smaller, the dress would be able to hang straight and there would be no wrinkling.

Here is another illustration from a side view:

Remember the show Are you being served?? One of their favorite lines was “Don’t worry, it will ride up with wear.” Unfortunately, clothes do ride up with wear, especially ill fitting ones! In Georgie’s case, take a look at all the fabric bunching up at the waist. Sure, I see the lump for the microphone. But the fabric is also bunching at the side seams and underarms. Poor Georgie’s dress is crying out for help. “Help me… her butt is a little big for me… I don’t have any choice but to go up!”

Let’s all learn a lesson from Georgie here. Please remember, just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. That is to say, just because you can squeeze your body into a certain size, doesn’t mean it fits. Afterall, looking like a sausage is never a good look, and it certainly isn’t sexy! I’m never one for fashion rules, because afterall, rules are fun to break! 😉 But it is true that for most people, absolutely skintight dresses are not the most flattering. Body skimming clothes tend to be more flattering and leaving a little something to the imagination never hurt either, right? 😉

I shall end this post with a bit of humor. I swear Georgie looks massive next to Anthony… and I always compare the size of their arms whenever they are on screen:
