Fashion police

"Fashion police" is an imaginary police force, making sure that people dress according to fashion. The term is jokingly used for self-appointed individuals who criticise or critique the clothing others wear, and thereby those others' fashion sense. The term can sometimes be used in a disparaging sense, holding that the fashion police have a narrow, rigid or uncreative sense of style or propriety, or it can be used with approval of what the presumed judgment of the fashion police would be if present ("Somebody call the fashion police!"), if the speaker believes someone has committed a fashion faux pas.
Other uses of this term include: Fashion Police, TV program
