Giuliana Rancic: Don't overspend on clothes
Giuliana Rancic believes many people are far too serious about fashion.
The TV star enjoys glamming up for events and has been known to splash the cash on key pieces. She would never leave herself in monetary peril because she’d bought the latest trend though and believes more people should take a leaf out of her book.
“I think there are some people that take fashion too seriously. I know some people very close to me who are a bit irresponsible when it comes to their love of fashion,” she told vogue.com.au. “There was a time when that was acceptable but today there are so many great brands that are affordable and super fashionable. I don’t think it’s financially responsible to spend your whole pay check on fashion.”
Giuliana is all about the “high-low trend”, meaning she will pair cheap pieces with designer items. She believes that is the future of the industry and is enjoying seeing how things are changing.
She cites Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s US Vogue cover as proof the industry is mixing things up at the moment.
“I thought it was great. It was a very bold move on [editor] Anna Wintour’s part and I love that she’s a leader not a follower,” she explained. “Kim’s body is curvy and a lot more relatable to women than most of the models on the cover of Vogue so why not embrace that? That makes a powerful statement. I also believe they are the first interracial couple to be on the cover of Vogue, which is another powerful statement.”
Giuliana was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and underwent a double mastectomy. She insists the power of fashion and make-up shouldn’t be overlooked when considering women who go through such difficult times, as it was one of the things which helped her remain strong.
“It’s not about whether you feel pretty or not – you’re going through something major, it’s the last thing on your mind. But two weeks after my double mastectomy, I went back to E! News and I was in hair and make-up and I looked in the mirror and I felt like myself again,” she said. “It gave me energy and made me feel vibrant.”
