Always-amusing blog Fashion Binge got a good close-up look at the Kate Moss for Topshop tie-dyed jeans, and they're a tad underwhelmed. "Topshop, I love you, but you're killing me. Also, these don't look tie-dyed. They look airbrushed. But why split hairs? They also look like the miserable, previously unthinkable combination of Mariah Carey's 'Rainbow' album cover and an acid trip at Coney Island. Also, I PRAY that the term 'tie-dye jeans' is both an oxymoron and one that I'll never hear again. Ever." [Fashion Binge]
