At least you won't be able to say I didn't warn you. LA stylist Lisa Katnic is behind recent infamy in the form of the Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke VMA performance, as well as Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video, and she has an interview in New York Magazine's "The Cut" today, in which she defends the VMA thing, talks about the relevance of "ratchet" style, and makes a shockingly horrific pronouncement:

It gets worse:
“I put athletic socks under rope sandals, and now I’m obsessed with that.”
