That's right! It's finally time for another edition of the popular feature Don't Show-cha Your Chocha, in which readers send in examples of waaaayyy too high hemlines and the valiant models who try to make them look normal.
It would be a gross understatement to say that Shopbop and American Apparel are repeat DSYC offenders. In fact, if they were people, they'd be those petty criminals on Cops who break the law so often that it becomes kind of quirky and charming, like, "A robbery at the 9th avenue 7-11? Sounds like Byron and Ziggy again!"
Here's the latest crop from these two crazy crooks:
A perfect example of Shopbop's MO: Normal length shirt. Worn as dress. Model hates her life.
Says Antonia: Either this girl had an overnight growth spurt or there'll be a chocha sighting in 5, 4, 3, 2, . . .
Charlotte spotted this profound lack of pants:
This is probably one of my favorite ones, ever:
Says Nicky: She is stone cold serious about showing her lady bits and trying to maintain that fierceness while wearing half a Glad bag as a bolero. And it originally cost $522! I love what Shopbop describes it as, "This is brilliant design unlike anything we've ever seen before." Ha!
Here's one that horrified me while I was innocently browsing and not exactly in the mood for porn:
And American Apparel's gotta join in the fun too!
Ania found this gem:
Theoretically not a dress, says Cate, and yet presented as one...
Next, a few that were actually not from Shopbop or American Apparel (weird, I know!).
This dress is described as "in the style of Paris Hilton" on ASOS.com. Seeing this girl's exposed vagina as she exits a car would also be in the style of Paris Hilton:
Says Jules: I'm not sure if she is hanging her head in despair or just keeping an eye on how much of an eyeful she is giving the photographer!
Rachel found a DSYC moment featuring Jonathan Rhys Meyers' girlfriend:
Check out the leg-crossing towards the camera on this one! Also, he's really creepy looking. [Editor's Note: Good god, yeah he is.]
Brittney found this extraordinarily awkward photo, which also illustrates a clear violation of my junior high school's hemline-below-fingertips dress code:
She says: If that slit went down any more or that hem went up any further, we might have
a chochaster on our hands. ...kind of like dis-aster...but with..okay you get it. Also look at what's going on in the shadow. It looks like the opposite of a chocha is happening...maybe a penicha?
I think I'll end with "penicha."
