New York Press 2004 Fifty Most Loathsome list: Pierre Rougier & Sarah Jessica Parker:
Click here to read entire list. All we can say is "Amen" regarding fashion publicist PIerre Rougier -- but Paul Wilmot is a close second in our minds. Regarding SJP -- we have none. She still has the face of a horse and the wit of a donkey (or is that the other way around) and for little more than that she is a fashion icon. Glad to hear others share in our opinion.
"IN THE SEA of slimy New York fashion publicists, Pierre Rougier is a giant squid: oozy, tentacle-wielding and capable of inflating to a tremendous size. It's a mystery why his designer clients don't bolt from the nose-in-the-air, thumb-up-the-ass Frenchman. With all the tact of Courtney Love and foresight of Martha Stewart, Rougier brown-noses fashion royalty to the point where even they notice, all the while shafting, with barely a shrug, anyone not endowed with a wardrobe allowance. But revenge will be sweet. Gucci execs have been urging Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquiere to cut the cord, and Anna Wintour, the famously frosty editrix whose repugnance for Rougier is her only shared trait with the rest of humanity, has repeatedly called for his perfumed head."
Sarah Jessica Parker
"WHEN GIRLS THINK another girl is beautiful, but guys know she isn't, call it the Sarah Jessica Parker syndrome. Parker is a dual monument to millennial American female vanity and inanity. Spoiled and groomed to the point of psychosis, Sarah Jessica Parker is the final dead-end in the American feminine odyssey. She dresses like a drag queen, a slave and sometimes a clown. Her hair is bleached and processed literally to the breaking point: A hairdresser revealed that all of Parker's hair once broke off beneath her ears. The actress speaks like an 11-year-old girl and has less to say; lacking utterly in charm, she compensates with screamy clothes and pointy shoes. Now that she is at long last gone, we're hoping new icons will spring up to replace her, and we're hoping they'll be wearing no-name jeans, going light on the eyeliner and reading a newspaper every once in a while."
