Ah Ha! Fashion mysteries solved!

Ever wondered why sometimes there are funny things in fashion that you think… Hmmm…now why is that so? Or where did THAT name come from? Here are 29 questions/answers that can put your tinkering mind to rest.

Things like:


24. Do celebrities get to keep all the clothes they wear?

For one-of-a-kind pieces (like red carpet gowns and runway samples worn for magazine shoots), celebrities have to return the pieces they wear so they can be borrowed again for other events events and shoots by other celebs and models. However, many celebrities are gifted clothing in the hopes that they’ll eventually wear them, be photographed in them, and act as “free”



27. Why are the buttons on different sides, on guys’ and girls’ shirts?

It’s an old tradition that began when fancy women used to get dressed with the help of a chambermaid, but men didn’t. Seamstresses put the buttons on the side of the garment that facilitates right-handedness. So, self-dressing men had the buttons running along the left side of the shirt while women, who needed help getting dressed, had the buttons running along the right side.
