We know why you're not accepted in the fashion world: because you don't know how to pronounce the names of all those foreign designers. Don't be ashamed. Many people pronounce "Dolce & Gabbana" like uncouth Americans. Youtube can help!

The Moment points out an entire collection of seconds-long Youtube clips offering the "correct" pronunciations of various fashion names. A selection:

Comme des Garçons: "Cum dee Gyair-so"

Dolce & Gabbana: "Dul-chayyyyyyyyy (pause, go have an espresso) Gabannnuh"

Fendi: (Inject self with thorazine). "findi."

Louis Vuitton: "Oo-wee ee taw"

Yves Saint Laurent: "Eve's on la Whore"
