Chic Muse, Why!?

Hello everyone!

Well, this is my very first post, and I’m so excited!

I’ve been reading lots of blogs for a while, but I wanted to start with one that I’ve discovered recently, The Chic Muse.

The Chic Muse

I don’t really know much about this girl, her name is Denni, she’s currently living in France, she wears ugly makeup and her blog’s name is incredibly pretentious.

My biggest problem with this girl is that she abuses of what I call “the painful expression pose” (PEP). You know, frowning with your eyes closed and tilting your head back, like it hurts inside while trying to look poetic:

If you see this pose in an editorial, it would be ok because it’s a magazine, but when you post pictures like this in your personal style blog it’s just stupid. I mean, we all know she took this pictures just to show us her that she’s edgy and has expensive clothes, and us readers are not expecting anything more than that, so why is she trying to model? It’s pathetic, it’s like she’s so sad she doesn’t appear in magazines so she takes photos like this to feel like she’s a real model.

Actually, I think I know the root of the problem. Some time ago she took a picture making the PEP, and it was featured in a German Vogue.

I’m not going to lie, it’s a beautiful picture, a beautiful background, great styling and the PEP actually works, and when I saw this, I thought it was actually shot for the magazine. I belive the main problem is that because it worked for her once, she thought this pose was her gold mine and continued to pose like that over and over again until the end of time.

Yeah... I'm fierce.

If you have a good eye, you may have noticed that she did the PEP 3 times in one post.

The beach is not painful, or sad… no one is buying it.

On the floor, with a mask. Maybe the mask was painful.

OMG, it hurts so bad.

She kept her eyes opened in this one. What happened?

Dude, it’s getting old.


OH GOOD LORD… DOES THIS GIRL EVER STOP!?!? That’s not even pretty, it looks like you are about to pee! This pose is idiotic and I hate it, I hated it the second time I saw it and I hated it the infinity x 5 time I saw it.

Dear Chic Muse: WHY? why are you in so much pain? Did someone die? Did your new Miu Miu shoes broke? WHY!? Stop with the PEP, it’s getting old and you only nailed it once.


Nati Hell.

PD: On the other hand, she was beautiful hair. Oh, and by the way, all this pictures are property of  The Chic Muse, I don’t own them, I don’t have anything to do with them (God forbid), I just hate them.

    Oh god YES! I agree with every single word. What the hell is her deal? I hate her Just Because. Make her eat, and then make her go away.

      why don’t you lose some weight, and stop hating on her you dumb bitch.
      you don’t know her, she can do whatever the hell she wants to. no one cares what you have to say so stop spamming websites with your dumb ass comments.

      • natihell / Jul 16 2010 9:53 pm

        As far as I’m concerned, this is MY website and you are spamming it with YOUR dumb ass comments.

      • Jess / Nov 30 2011 5:48 am

        Hahaha I agree! Denni is awesome, so what?

  2. Anna Pei / Jun 27 2010 11:14 am

    Please keep on with this, Nati! Even where one might not agree with you, it’s fun to read.

    I love her blog!

  4. Dari / Jul 16 2010 11:58 pm

    I love and hate her blog. She has her own style. She’s a great poser, but she does overdo it a bit…

    I think I’m just cringe when I read her copy. If she spoke better French, I would rather read her posts in that language. Her English is just very poor, and with all the followers she has, I think it’s time to make some friends and begin using them to translate or something.

    And you don’t really know much more about her life outside of her clothes. I find it hard to relate to her when she’s essentially just a mannequin talking about inspiration and the weather and how excited she is to have her new things to wear.

    I don’t hate her. I love checking in on her blog. I just don’t LOVE her.

      Aww, my English sucks too haha, and I apologize for that.

    • Arushi Khosla / Aug 12 2010 8:35 am

      Totally, totally agree with you.

    Congratulations, you’ve been featured in an article.

    you have to realize that she is a model for american apparel, it’s not like she’s some random girl who’s trying to be famous using “PEP.”

    • Elle / Nov 19 2010 1:12 am

      I’m pretty sure anyone can model for american apparel providing they have no problem with the occasional soft porn. just sayin’…

  8. Fiamma / Nov 12 2010 7:29 pm

    what are you people? bored or something? can you do something more constructive than hate someone who’s not afraid to express her passion (fashion in this case)??? and she’s actually really talented and one of not so many who has her own style!!! or may be writing hateful posts about people you don’t know is your only talent?!

  9. chris / Nov 29 2010 4:47 am

    omg this girl and her photos are so amazing!! Thanks for posting about her!

  10. jay / Dec 2 2010 8:00 pm

    ummmm yea…. you are a hater. if you dont like her expressions or site…dont go to it anymore. its really that simple

  11. Beatrice / Dec 7 2010 3:37 pm

    You are a jealous!
    A bitch!.
    and obviously You don´t know anything about art, fashion or bloggers.

    • Amanda Toombel / Dec 13 2010 4:22 pm

      I totes agree girlfriend!!

  12. Mariel Andaya / Dec 13 2010 4:14 pm

    You’re all probably just jealous because you’re fat, ugly and can’t get laid. Truth hurts, dumbasses.

  13. elf / Jan 2 2011 10:41 pm

    I just think that Chic Muse is a character, she is Chic Muse and not the girl, not Denni, I also think that this is a right attitude for her, she reminds me a manga’s girl, I do not see the problem 🙂

    Je suis tombé sur ton article un peu par hasard et je dois dire que j’ai était vraiment surprise.
    Je suis d’accord : la pose de cette « Chic Muse » est, quelque peu, ridicule mais ton article l’est d’autant plus, j’appelle ça ni plus ni moins que de la jalousie, une envie réprimée, un désir refoulé.
    Personnellement quand je trouve une chose ridicule, ou vraiment mauvaise, je ne me donne pas la peine d’en faire un article, une montagne !
    Je ne monte sur mes grands chevaux que lorsque la chose en question m’a aigris, alors je te dirais juste courage, assume toi, ça va allait mieux, ne te prend pas trop la tête, ou fait des efforts pour améliorer ton propre maquillage et ton propre style et tu verras tu arrêteras d’écrire ce genre d’article débile

    PS : pour ton information la prétentieuse « Chic Muse » est tout de même mannequin pour American Apparel et ça depuis un sacré moment. ..

    Tu es une pauvre fille

    I fell on your article and I have to say that I have was really surprised.
    I agree: the pose(installation) of this ” Chic Muse ” is, a little, ridiculous but your article is it all the more, I call that no more and no less that of the jealousy, a repressed envy(urge), a repulsed(repressed) desire.
    Personally when I find a ridiculous, or really bad thing(matter), I do not give the punishment(effort) to make an article, a mountain!
    I rise on my big horses only when the thing(matter) in question embittered me, then I would say to you just courage, assume you, that goes got(fitted) better, does not take you too much the head, or makes efforts to improve your own make-up and your own style and you will see you will stop writing this kind(genre) of stupid(weak) article

    PS: for your information the conceited ” Chic Muse ” is all the same model for American Apparel and that since a sacred moment…

    You are a poor girl

    I understand why you and probably other people think like that. Though I disagree.
    You said she stands there like a model, but it looks a bit stupid because it isn’t in a magazine.
    Well, I don’t see any difference, before they come in a magazine models are standing the same way. So what! Those pictures look good, It’s not weird to do the same.
    And about the clothes. The price doesn’t matter, I’m not going to buy it, you aren’t, but probably there are some who would. And like many other people I like watching to it, watching fashion you know.
    I don’t think she thinks about the money and dishes up. She does it for the fashion too
    All the blog is just about fashion, nothing more, nothing less.

    And sorry for the horrible English !

    Oh, these comments are priceless! ‘You are just some random jealous bitch. And fat, obviously’. That’s hilarious.

    I used to like browsing her blog one year ago but her flippant attitude exasperates me. One year ago she just started to be invited to events and so, don’t tell me she is an AA model, I mean she wasn’t “famous” as now even if other fashion bloggers are a way much famous than her. I sent her an email about a collaboration where I would photographer and also advised places to go about her upcoming trip. I know she has a lot of comments but Chiara from TheBlondeSalad answers some of them like other fashion bloggers. The thing is, although I admit to be rancorous, that she could have responded my email even if it was to tell me she wasn’t interested I wouldn’t have blamed her. She is so pretentious, and she shouldn’t be like that because she should be thankful to her readers because thanks to them she can be invited to all those fashion events. Indeed, she wouldn’t take part in them if she wasn’t popular and was a mundane blogger. When people will no longer read her blog, she’s gonna understand she should have been closer to her readers. She should share more more about her trips, and answer the comments. However, I enjoy some clothes and accesorizes she wears. Although I wouldn’t wear so mini shorts and posing as she does!

    Thank you for making me lol with the Chic Muse article, after viewing fashion blog after blog trying to get cool inspiration, not all this pretentious, expensive and wierd crap I see, this blog is at the top of that list. This is a perfect example of, what is the point of it, her expressions and poses are translated to my thoughts exactly. Thank you for sharing the sentiment.

    I’ve read most of your blog and the only post I’ve agreed with so far is “Geek Chic, WHY?!” because frankly, I too have never understood why anyone would wear glasses if the didn’t need to haha.

    The other posts however, are just pure jelousy. You make comments on how much you hate their faces, their hair, their poses, and say that the only thing they talk about is fashion and nothing else. Well, that’s why their blogs are called FASHION blogs. Their personal lives have nothing to do with the blog.

    In most of your posts you tell us how ridiculous and hideous X blogger looks or Y blogger looks. I would like to know what your definition of beauty is. What you think is “normal.” In fact I haven’t seen you posting about your own style.

    At least these fashion blogging ladies are brave enough to post their “outrageous” or unconventional looks to the world. They wear whatever they want and would care less if they looked like” the crazy homeless lady.” They feel good in what they wear and that’s what’s important. They dress for themselves, not for you, not for me. They exude confidence whether they’re wearing something ugly or something gorgeous and that’s what makes people so intrigued. That is why they have so many fans and followers, because these fashion bloggers have no fear. No fear for self expression through clothing (whether it be designer or something from the charity shop).

    i want to THANK YOU for doing a post about this! this is probably the only thing that really irks me about her blog ! i was looking online to see if anyone else noticed, and stumbled upon this. I don’t think you’re being jealous, stupid, mean, etc….you’re just pointing out that the girl needs to incorporate some more damn poses! she looks mean and pretentious with her nose in the air 90% of the time! she should smile every once in a while.

  21. jetzabel / Sep 4 2011 6:58 am

    Don’t hate on her because she is and will be far more successful than you’ll ever be. Her blog has high fashion that is worn in a way that she looks effortlessly glamorous and not crazy. It’s people like you that I imagine sitting at home lonely and you have nothing better to do than hate on her because you wish you had the opportunities and experiences she’s had. Furthermore, bloggers blog to express themselves not to be brought down by mean bitches like you!

  22. danii / Nov 10 2011 5:48 am

    bitch you just mad cause no one looks at your hatting ass blog bitch where your blog at you sit behind a computer and talk shit about people. at-least chicmuse has done something where you at ? what magazines you in ? no where didn’t think so stupid bitch and by the way learn how to speak and write proper English cause your English is ridiculous!
