The Foot Snatcher Strikes at Haider Ackermann

The Foot Snatcher is a dangerous fashion criminal who snatches the feet of unsuspecting fashion victims. The Snatcher’s usual weapon of choice is a pair of overly-long pants, however, as these poor models discovered, there are other ways to snatch feet, too: Buy it here for £1650 We THINK that’s a skirt, but it could also be long pants. Or it could simply be a blanket wrapped around the model’s waist. What we DO know is that it surely has to be hard to walk with all of that fabric swirling around your feet ,no? Hard, and also kinda filthy. Imagine the hems of that skirt/trouser/whatever it is after a short stroll along the average city street. Now imagine them…

Foot Snatcher Claims more victims at Zara

Oh, COME ON, Zara. Come on. Look, we know you like your super-long inseams. We know you do. We’ve also heard it said that you do it, not to annoy those of us who are less than 7″ tall (which is the height some of your clothes seem to be cut for), but because you want your customers to be able to hem their pants to the perfect length for them. Well, OK, we see where you’re coming from with that. There’s a lot to be said for having clothes tailored, and maybe if more people did it, we’d have fewer fashion criminals in our cells. The thing is, though, not everyone has the time/money/inclination to have everything altered. Sometimes…

The Foot Snatcher Strikes Again

It’s been a while since we heard from our old enemy the Foot Snatcher, who, as you will recall, sneaks around the fashion world, stealing the feet of helpless fashion victims, and leaving them looking like their legs got chopped off at the ankle. Say what you like about skinny jeans, but they’ve certainly helped keep the Foot Snatcher at bay. At first glance, we thought this was another Foot Snatching crime in action. On closer inspection of the evidence, however, we can just see the toe of this model’s shoe peeking out from the hem of her trousers, so we can stand down the alert. Really, though, this image is just an excuse to show you how ugly these…

Modelling is Hard: Foot Snatcher Edition

This Acne model got her feet snatched while modelling this attractive and edgy pair of sheer pants. Such a shame. Such a tragedy. Such a timely reminder of the dangers of trying to dress like a fashion victim, in see-through pants which are so long that we’re wondering if they make potential purchasers sign some kind of disclaimer promising not to sue them if they trip over them and break a leg. Modelling is hard, people: NEVER FORGET IT.

Celebrity Style on Trial: Solange Knowles’ has a run in with the Foot Snatcher

We were going to sympathise with Solange Knowles over this outfit, because it’s not every day that a girl has a run in with the Foot Snatcher, after all, and foot snatching is a serious issue for The Fashion Police. It’s not really her missing feet we feel we need to investigate, though, is it? It’s her missing top: No one’s really going to notice the missing feet now, are they? Clever! With the return of flares and other forms of wide-leg pants to the fashion radar this season, we fear feet snatching is going to be on the increase (tiny bras, we’re not so sure about, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted). What’s your position on the…

Fashion Police Glossary: The Foot Snatcher

The Foot Snatcher is a dangerous fashion criminal who gets his (or possibly her) kicks from depriving other people of theirs: in other words, the Foot Snatcher steals feet, so run, don’t walk – if you still can, that is!

Foot Snatcher Strikes Again: Kelly Clarkson is latest victim

Poor, brave, Kelly Clarkson, seen here smiling bravely through what must have been the horrendous pain of having her feet removed by one of fashion's most feared criminals: THE FOOT SNATCHER! We'd actually missed this crime, so Fashion Police reader Camelia had to step in and take Kelly into the witness protection scheme. When we look closely, we can see that the Snatcher has actually left some of Kelly's feet visible, but still – with all of that fabric dragging on the ground, how on earth is the poor girl supposed to walk?

Foot Snatcher Strikes Again: Shopbop models are latest victims

 It's with great sadness that The Fashion Police report the return of the dangerous and dastardly criminal known only as "The Foot Snatcher". Having previously snatched the feet of celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Katie Holmes and others, the Foot Snatcher was believed to have gone into hiding following a high-profile Fashion Police investigation. However, this week he (or she) struck again, this time targeting Shopbop models, who were left without feet following the terrible attacks. "Those poor girls," commented one witness, who declined to be named. "As if it wasn't bad enough that they were forced to wear huge, baggy pants with perplexing crosses on the butts, to have had their feet snatched was just the final insult." The pants in question – believed to be VPL's "Swag" Pants - are now…

Foot Snatcher strikes again! Victoria Beckham is latest victim!

OK, this is getting serious. Today we add Victoria Beckham’s name to the list of celebrities who’ve fallen victim to that vile criminal known to The Fashion Police as The Foot Snatcher. That list in full: Kristin Cavallari and Erin O’ConnorJanet JacksonKim KardashianKatie Holmes The Fashion Police would like to assure concerned readers that we have our very best officers working round the clock on this – in fact, they’re out on the streets right now in their gun-shaped shoes, so don’t worry kids, the situation is in hand, and we’re hoping to reunite Mrs Beckham with her lost feet very soon. In the meantime, don’t have nightmares – and keep an eye on your feet…

Kristin Cavallari and Erin O’Connor latest victims of “feet snatcher”. Fashion Police investigating.

Two more celebrities have fallen victim to the fashion criminal known only as ‘The Foot Snatcher’. So far, Janet Jackson, Kim Kardashian and Katie Holmes have all had feet snatched by the dastardly villain, and this week our anonymous snatcher can add two more names to his list – those of Kristin Cavallari and Erin O’Connor, both of whom were spotted by Fashion Police officers out and about without feet. What’s especially tragic about these latest cases is that the celebrities in question were wearing fairly cute outfits before the snatching took place. Now their trousers legs are going to get filthy trailing along the ground. WHEN WILL THE MADNESS END? (Thanks to Sophie for reporting the Kristin picture!)

Fall Fashion Trends 2015: the 70s look

Well, you don’t have too look too far to figure out the fall fashion trends 2015, do you? A quick look at Zara’s ‘new-in’ section reveals that the 70s look is still alive and well – and just as big a fashion trend for fall 2015 as it was was for winter. And summer. And spring. And… we honestly can’t see an end in sight to this one, folks: which will be good news for some of you, and very bad news for others… A-line dress over wide culottes Fall Fashion Trends 2015: Culottes The good news is that, as with most trends, the fall fashions don’t take the 70s look completely literally, so you’re not necessarily going to find…

Trends on Trial | Baggy Trousers

This season, ZARA is carrying a lot of stuff like this: All items: ZARA And, OK, they’re not all “baggy”. Not exactly. Some are just stretchy. And have obviously been victimized by our old enemy, The Foot Snatcher.  Others, meanwhile, look a lot like sleepwear, or yoga pants, or some other kind of “not necessarily intended to be worn as a fashion statement… or as outdoor clothes” garments. These ARE meant to be worn out of doors, and they’re quite a departure from the usual round of super-skinny jeans and leggings-as-pants which have reigned supreme over the fashion world for years now, so we naturally want to know what you think of them. To take the case for the defence…

Style Trial | Eva Green’s Elie Saab black and white mesh jumpsuit

Actress Eva Green wore this unusual black and white jumpsuit to the world premiere of Penny Dreadful in New York last night: we want to know what you think of it? This is from the Elie Saab Resort 2014 collection, and features a black mesh top, attached to a white jumpsuit with wide sleeves. The trousers, meanwhile, are equally wide, and it would appear poor Eva was the unfortunate victim of that dastardly fashion criminal, The Foot Snatcher, because we can’t see her feet at all. Now we know why the Elie Saab presentation showed this collection in motion: an outfit like this is designed to flow, and we’re guessing it would probably look better with a bit of movement…
