My mom and I are a bit Eurotrash and somewhat proud of it. We just wish that the word "trash" would be replaced with "chic"

I would say that most pieces from Versace, D&G and Valentino would be "Eurotrash style"

I've worn this exact ensemble that Madonna is wearing in this ad.

I saw a lot of Eurotrash style in Greece, Italy and South of France.

I don't think it's a bad thing. It's just the name that sounds bad.

Chavs wear fake Burberry, Louis Vuitton purses, and BabyPhat. In North America we would call the style ghetto, no?

You know, I think the term "eurotrash" might come from stiff americans who were both attracted and put off by the unabashed display of luxury...

It is very hard to pull it off well, but kudos to you if you do!

I think its easier for Arab women to pull it off. My mom is from Kuwait and I have to say that big hair, big jewelry, big labels and evident make up is the normal trend among Kuwaiti women.

I also find that Sophia Loren, Bianca Jagger, Ivana Trump and Jerry Hall have a Eurotash style.

I agree, and Sophia Loren and Bianca Jagger carry it well. Ivana Trump and Jerry Hall less well... Ivana is the worst here IMO.

Well remember who Ivana was married to! I think most can't agree that "The Donald" is over the top.

^ Yes, well...

Anyway, Eurotrash style is far from my personal style ideal. It's very hard to pull off, and a lot of the time it looks tacky. It's a real tightrope to walk! :p

But if you do it well, it's spectacular and instant glamour! Hmm... Makes me wonder, is "eurotrash" equal to "glamour" somehow?

It's also prevalent among Long Island women too. My friend calls them Ginos and Ginas.

Eurotrash is glamour without restraint.

Now that I think it. My aunt is a bit eurotrash, she's VERY glamourous, HUGE diamond rings, pashminas, white suits worn with a red patent belt. A champange Jaguar named "Gatita" (female kitten in spanish). Just too much, over the top but still super glam, and she doesn't have a logo in sight. She has Vuitton but the Suhali, nothing Monogrammed.

The Footballer's wives and girlfriends are very Euro-trash.
