Shes an editor for Glamour magazine and constantly has to deal with the fashion faux pas making the mags popular Dos And Donts column.
Baker says Glamour has been providing the public service since its very first issue in 1939 and says times have changed enough that, these days, its now OK to wear white after Labor Day.
But despite some fashion flexibility, Baker is adamant that some trends should never ever be in style, such as mesh clothing or ripped-up denim.
She laments: Yet they keep coming back, no matter what we say.
These days, Baker is having to fight another fashion foe: Women who wear leggings as pants.
Baker hopes to combat future fashion disasters with a new book, Glamours Big Book Of Dos And Donts (Gotham Books).
