In a way, I owe Heather Mills a debt of gratitude. Every single time I read or write a story, she gives me so many reasons to know I’m superior to her, and that’s nice. I mean yeah it’s good to have self-esteem for its own sake, but hey, if you feel better because you’re reminded of how much someone else sucks, what’s the harm? I’m going to keep telling myself that. So today in clueless Heather Mills news, we have a fashion show. Heather manages to consistently have no understanding why everyone hates her and why they all dislike her baseless smug sense of superiority. Well Heather, I’m here to enlighten you!
Your clothes suck!
Okay, that’s about all I need to say. Really, the pictures do the job beautiful for me. Heather, you see, is a militant vegan. Now before you jump down my throat for that phrase, let me clarify that I am not calling all vegans inherently militant. Just Heather so far. There are all different levels of green living, but Heather is just a step or two away from the eco-terrorist spot. As far as I know she hasn’t set fire to any planned communities or McMansions yet, but I’m still hoping the government is keeping close tabs on her. However since she hasn’t reached that level yet, Heather’s just decided to terrorize us with her horrible, painful, awful, deplorable [whatever other pejorative you’d like to stick in] fashion designs of recycled textiles. All to help animals. Who, by the way, told me they’d prefer it if someone better helped the out. Thanks.
She’s on a one-woman mission to change the world, but Heather Mills may have gone too far with her latest venture. The infamous vegan and animal rights campaigner has just released a new fashion line of recycled and re-modelled pieces. But far from converting people to her cause, the bizarre looking clothes could drive them back into the arms of big business. Instead of producing a wearable covetable collection, Ms Mills’ range, called Be@one, looks more like the fancy dress found at the back of a charity shop.
A fuchsia pink corset dress with garish ruffles would look at home at a children’s party rather than a cocktail party. While a pair of ‘high-waisted trousers for the office’ are more suited to a clown’s day job, not your normal office job. Heather debuted her new collection at the Celebrity Catwalk event in Hollywood last night. The annual star-studded evening sees a number of celebrities give up their time and talents, and take to the catwalk to raise funds and awareness of animal rights. Heather, 41, also collected an award at the event for animal activism. The ex-wife of Beatle Paul McCartney chose to launch Be@one at the event, but it’s not yet known how Hollywood’s greatest interpreted the collection.
On her website, Heather describes the restyled clothes as ‘inspirational’. ‘Society throws away over a million tones of clothing and textiles into the rubbish bins annually. Many of these items could be resold or remade into something new and exciting,’ she writes. ‘The collection consists of women’s and menswear, designed for the assertive, fashionable and eco-conscious person. All the fabrics used in the pieces have been carefully sourced and remodeled into something unique and highly wearable.’
Although her definition of ‘highly wearable’ seems odd when you actually see the clothes themselves. In addition to the garish corset dress and clown trousers, Heather has designed a recycled white lace evening gown, which looks more like a bedraggled wedding dress. She’s also turned out a figure-frumping black knee-length jumpsuit, which is slashed from thigh to knee. Not to mention a purple skirt/black top combo which can only be described as Frankenstein-inspired.
Eager to inflict her curious brand of fashion onto the public, Heather says there will be two collections a year from Be@one. But judging from the first outing, we’re not sure there will be a great deal of fans clamouring for a second onslaught.
[From the Daily Mail]
Hmm… I actually like the idea of this. Our society on the whole is far too quick to toss things. We buy everything super cheap, then it breaks, then we replace it with another super cheap version, which then breaks, and we keep on replacing it, forever in this cycle that’s terrible for the planet. Instead, why not invest in a decent, well-made item to begin with?
And no one mends their clothes anymore. Again, because everything’s so cheap, why not just buy another? People only put the effort into fixing something when it cost more to begin with. Sometimes I really hate it, but I do agree with Heather. But that doesn’t make me like her anymore. In fact it makes me hate her even more, because I feel like a hypocrite, just because she’s involved with it. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: whatever your cause, Heather Mills is the last person you want promoting it. Think of the most reviled people in the world. Let’s say there 300. Heather’s probably at 263. Not number one, but she’s on the list. Do you really want her telling people to eat your bean burgers? Just a word of advice to the animal charities out there.
The Daily Mail did a pretty good job of explaining why the clothes suck. I can’t really expound on it anymore. Your eyes work, you can see. Even if you’re not a fashionista it obviously jumps off the page and down your throat. More reasons why we hate you Heather.
Thats some ugly shit , it looks like it came out of garage can , and thats not the way you want to promote eco-friendly stuff.
Which leg is the fake one?
I gather Heather is unaware of consignment shops or places like Goodwill, the Salvation Army, ARC and many other places where people either donate or consign clothing. People have been reselling clothing for decades.
Taylor B, you are totally correct but missing the point. Heather Mills won’t come within 100 miles of gooodwill, SA or any store like that. She has to remain vastly superior to the masses while she’s telling us how to buy clothing and what to eat. She wouldn’t be making any kind of statement by just simply going shopping at one of those places, much less any money.
That’s the kind of fashion you wouldn’t want to be found dead in.
those eyes.. All the insanity of the world!
What is up with that hair color of hers, it’s almost white blond which makes her look older than she is.
Plus those clothes look like they came out of Boy George’s closet back in the 80’s.
Maybe mean but I hope she loses all of her $$.
Is DJ AM really dead??? What in the world is going on with all these deaths????
Goopy and Mills should hang out!
Before I just thought she was insignificant, now I feel sorry for her that she doesn’t get it and has no life.
okay she’s an utterbitch, point noted and agreed.
But really the clothes aren’t being staged by 12yr old boy-shaped models either. So of COURSE we instantly think they suck. These models have realistic shapes !!
Really, Heather Mills is venom. But the thought of all the “once worn” clothes being turned into MORE clothes is INGENIUS. Heather Mills probably bought the idea off someone who NEEDED money for a mere $50 (she’s cheap and nasty so she fits right in with the Hollywood mobsters).
Can’t wait to see the gravy train of jackels who copy this idea.
Votes on who presents it next??? However the outcome. I hope it makes mainstream and they don’t USE/MILK/FARM cheap labor to produce it.
I do like the idea as a whole and I’d hate to trash someone who’s trying to do good because I’m always feeling badly about throwing shit away that I only worse a couple times… but, there’s gotta be a better way than going out looking like shit, right?
Nebraska – I totally agree. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Heather in Goop.
Although I absolutely adore the red haired model in the pink monster.
PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF, what some people will do for attention?
The chicks are hot, the clothes are not!
she should call the collection “no good deed goes unpunished”, because wearing that is a punishment in itself..
tihihi, JohnnieR, that was funny
“consignment shops or places like Goodwill, the Salvation Army, ARC and many other places where people either donate or consign clothing. People have been reselling clothing for decade”
-Except that those “eco-friendly” clothes won’t set you back thousands of dollars. What a pretentious b*tch. I’m sure the Hollywood lemmings will just eat it up. Then applaud themselves for being so environmentally conscious. Excuse me while I retch uncontrollably.
I lost ALL RESPECT for heather mills when she is supposed to be an animal activist but yet said Mike Vick should return to football.. GROSS.. give me a break. Did those dogs get to return to their lives? No, they were lived horrific lives before being killed in a horrific way by a HORRIFIC MAN.. STFU heather and go away CREEPY wierdo.
Yowza. The clothes are terrible. The models are lovely.
why do people hate her so much? cuz she got paul mcartney’s money? I don’t really give a shit… he’s got plenty… and I generally trust the courts to judge based on facts… most of the time :-p
aside from that though, these clothes really DO look cheap and recycled… did she wash the material before re-using it? gross…
I agree with those who feel that Heather Mills is just awful. However, these clothes do not look any worse to me than any other “couture.” It all looks ugly to me, lol. I am like the anti-Anna Wintour – a t-shirts and jeans girl. Horrors! On a side note, her models are hot!
LL: I wonder too!!!
As for the “fashion”, pfffft.
But the crap she designed isn’t any worse than the stuff Stella McCartney peddles.
@saintdevil: Stella McCartney really does design some hideous stuff, doesn’t she? It’s kinda funny how she and Heather Mills-McCartney-Mills seem to have a lock down on atrocious design wear based on connections with Sir Paul. Nobody would know or give a damn about either of them if not for Paul McCartney’s name. I wrote Paul a letter back when I was about 10 declaring my devotion and intention to marry him as soon as I was old enough. All I asked was for him to wait for me to grow up a little. He never responded. The heartbreak was hard, but I moved on. *sigh*
Agree with saintdevil! I was checking Stella’s lines a couple of days ago and was confused by what looked like cheaply cobbled outfits and material that looked like it belonged on the women of Dynasty and Knot’s Landing.
Are you serious? Bunch of crap. Aside from being a gold digger she has no other talent.
Just like Heather they are truly ugly. Thats as nice as i can be 🙂
Courtney Love has been doing this for years people! She ought to sue.. but she is smart enough not to take credit for this CR@P!
She could help the enviorment by not bleaching her hair, all the chmicals every month. Enviormental hypoctrits really tick me off, Celebs who waste way more resources than the average Joe.
I wish people would practice what they preach.
what is wrong with those models?? they look like amateurs, not even slim
If I didn’t know any better, I’d think Heather Mills-McCartney was actively trying to set back every cause she supports.
Yae – “utterbitch”, i like that…:)
To be honest, even high end fashion can look pretty weird at times, and well most of the time it can’t even be word on a regular basis. So I mean fashion is hypocritical, and so is that review.
For a split second, I was thinking that the camera angle and the crappy photos were to blame and perhaps the clothes weren’t as bad as they seemed but no… They photos are simply the cherry on the top of a steamy pile of crap. Good GOD they (the clothes) are grotesque!
I am DERILICTE!
LOL @ mags. You read my mind!
August 28th, 2009 at 10:06 pm okay she’s an utterbitch, point noted and agreed.

The models look great… maybe a little embarrassed, because they’re wearing clothes that look like shit! The CLOTHES suck, not the models.
someone explain to me how vinyl footwear is green?
Не знаю, как вам народ, а мне не очень. Думаю, что тема уже затертая многими обсуждениями, поэтому не считаю более актуальным.
