There are certain magazines and media outlets who specialize in, or run dedicated sections of their publication, to what are called fashion faux pas. This term is used when a very public person attends a very public event, wearing a personalized dressing gown that catches the public’s attention in a bad way. This can happen for a number of reasons. Some would argue that sometimes these fashion faux pas are perpetrated intentionally! It is common knowledge that any publicity is good publicity, and nothing garners more attention at an event for the rich and famous when someone shows up wearing the unthinkable… In addition to what some of the celebrities who make a fashion faux pas were, is sometimes how they wear it. Most people remember when Janet Jackson made the infamous blunder at the Super Bowl where the personalized dressing gown she was wearing happened to slip off of her at what some consider an opportune time. Even though this was viewed negatively in the press, that event was likely the most publicity Janet Jackson had seen in a very long time. There are no set rules in fashion, just a burning desire to create something people will remember.
