Tina Fey Refuses To Take Advice On Fashion!

By on 26 April, 2011



Tina Fey has admitted she’ll never take fashion advice from designers, because most of them would never even imagine wearing their catwalks creations!


The ‘30 Rock‘ star, who is currently pregnant with her second child, claims a lot of sartorialists would never don some of their catwalk creations and says it’s a good idea to have a look at what they themselves are wearing.

In her latest book, Bossypants, Tina writes:

“A wise friend once told me, ‘Don’t wear what fashion designers tell you to wear. Wear what they wear.’ His point being that most designers, no matter what they throw onto the runway, favour simple, flattering pieces for themselves.

“Anyone who has never met me can tell you that fashion has always been very very very very very very very important to me. For example, I once told my cousin that my dream would be ‘if the whole store Express was my closet!’ How prescient, because now, of course, I wear nothing but Express.”


As well as not heeding advice from designers, the 40-year-old comedien also joked she found her own unique style when she was just 19.

She said:

“It can’t be said enough. Don’t concern yourself with fashion; stick to simple pieces that flatter your body type . By 19, I had found my look. Oversize T-shirts, bike shorts, and wrestling shoes. To prevent the silhouette from being too baggy, I would clinch it at the waist with my fanny pack. I was pretty sure I would wear this look forever.

“The shirts allowed me express myself with cool sayings like ‘There’s No Crying in Baseball’ and ‘Universitat Heidelberg,’ the bike shorts showed off my muscular legs, and the bum bag held all my trolley tokens. I was nailing it on a daily basis. Find something like this for yourself as soon as possible.”


That’s one way to look at fashion!
