Fun New Thing: Scroll-down Disaster

Have you ever heard this term before? I just heard it today for the first time. As in:

Scroll-down disaster: An ensemble that seems alright at first glance, if first glance is at eye-level. But then as your eyes scroll down to take in the whole outfit, the picture gets progressively worse.

To illustrate this hot mess visually:

I must work this term into my 2012/2013 award season viewing lexicon. Everyone just watches the Oscars for the outfits anyway, right? Thanks to Slate’s Culture Gabfest podcast for the new addition to my snark vocabulary.
