They think, Therefore we are.

We have high respects for fashion editors. We regard them with same respect as say, a head of a nation since they are the decision makers and the powers behind a nation's rise or fall. However, even Kings and Queens have their own share of criticisms and our fashion eds are not an exemption.

In yesterday's issue of the Daily Mail, Liz Jones asked the most obvious question that we all wanted to ask but never dared to--- "Why don't the world's fashion editors wear what they tell us to wear?"

Not only she asked why they don't wear a very steel gray balloon from Prada but she also gave them a little bit of a stylish bashing. This is what she could say about our fashion powerwomen:

On Anna Wintour:

" While I vaguely admire the fact that the formidable editor-in- chief of American Vogue has found her own personal style - shiny bob ( professionally ironed each morning after her tennis lesson), Chanel shades, full print skirt belted at her tiny waist, pastel cardi and pointy kitten heels - and stuck to it, come winter or summer (in winter she just adds grey woollen tights), I have to say I find her look rather boring. "

On Franca Sozzani of Italian Vogue:

"... who has kept her long blonde tresses and black voluminous clothes for what seems like decades"

On Ingrid Sischy of Interview Magazine

"... who only ever wears a tracksuit and trainers and never seems to wash her hair, let alone have it professionally blow-dried - having a signature style is Ms Wintour's way of opting out, of being above fashion somehow, and I suppose it sure as hell makes getting dressed in the morning easier."

I admit I am not really that excited with Anna Wintour's hair. It 's getting boring now. However, who am I to even insinuate that to her? Afterall she's the fashion dictator, not us. She dictates us in everything, the hair...the clothes..the heels... and masochistic as it may sound, we just love it.
