I don't read Flare (I'm a Fashion magazine kinda girl), but picked up on this story from Shelley Fralic over at the Vancouver Sun. The deadly-serious fashion magazine for deadly-serious fashion lovers recently ran a special edition in which they listed "The 50 Most Stylish Canadians."
As Fralic points out, of the 50, 7 are fashion models, 13 are in the music industry, 4 are "wordsmiths," 7 are actors, 7 are artists and 12 are "fashion worlders," which I'm guessing means socialite. And so, among the homegrown heroes waving the fashion flag for Canada are Kim Cattrall (does she wear clothes?), Pamela Anderson (puh-lease! But again, does she wear clothes?) and "Call Me Maybe" popsicle Carly Rae Jepsen. Excuse me while I go refill the barrel they just scraped dry.
So Carly Rae Jepsen made the list? That's Carly Rae Jepsen, known for wearing such striking and fashion forward ensembles as these Forever 21 sale pieces…
Thankfully CRJ mentor Justin Bieber didn't make the cut (for obvious reasons), but joining Carly in the musicians corner is Drake, Ryan Adams and thankfully saving graces, Joni Mitchell and Feist. But what about Dragonette's Martina Sorbara? Or the foot stompin' Serena Ryder and her laid-back cool? Jeez, even talking-voice-musician William Shatner has his own thing going on that's more deserving than Pamela Anderson!
Thankfully, Rachel McAdams, Ryan Gosling, Joe Mimram, Deepa Mehta and Tim Blanks make up some of the more deserving entries, while Linda Evangelista earns high praise for being on the cover. No Michael Buble, Ryan Reynolds or Don Cherry (face it, he owns his unique style). And Donald Sutherland over Keifer? It's a questionable collection of names, so tell me, if you were putting this list together, who would you include?
