>> Question: Who won't go anywhere without her Manolos and Chanel sunnies... even while watching the runway shows?
Answer. (It's an interesting read.)
>> I was looking through the new POP magazine, when I came across an editorial called "Angels." It supposed to be a reflection of what youth in the near future will wear -- if that's true, tomorrow's youth is scary. I don't know that I liked the pictures -- I can't decide. The thing that cracked me up the most is what Stam is "modeling" -- a Dior perfume.
>> I'm sorry, but after seeing these pictures all over the internet, I can't help but say something. Gemma Ward cannot and should not be made to look like Brigitte Bardot. Sure, the Katharine Hepburn look works for Daria, but when I look at this set of pictures, all I see is Gemma in a bad Dolly Parton 'do. Yeah, they gave her the smoky, sultry BB eyes, but the hair -- it's so big and incongruous, that's all I can look at. It has a life of it's own. Gemma's face is so round already, the big hair look isn't flattering on her -- sleek hair looks five billion times better on her. Besides, Gemma is so unique looking in the first place -- that is her strength -- why take it away from her by making her look like someone else? Kaiser Karl, the photographer, should have known better. Glenda Bailey, Harper's editor, should have known better.

>> ...when it comes to aging. I mean, the woman is 47 now, and she looks just amazing. I'm sorry, I can't hate Vogue Paris for putting a celebrity on their March 2006 cover -- I love what they do on the inside too much. Besides, I love black and white photography, and I like how David Sims decided to overexpose it a bit. Can't wait to see what's inside!
>> The eighties are back! And they are bad. I so saw it coming -- the skinny pants, the leggings, the neons, and the ankle boots that are popping up everywhere all point to it. But no need to look like you need some big hair to go with your outfit... maybe just a mini here... some neon there... that'll do, that'll do.
The rest of David Sim's "La Sauvage" -- I totally need those teal Lanvins.
>> I can do the Robocop... I can do the Freddie... but can I do the stripper-shoe walk? Lanvin Cone Heels, just for you. So put on your dancing shoes, you sexy little swine.
>> Imagine the possibilities... if Miuccia Prada collaborated with H&M, like Stella and Karl have before. Now imagine if those possibilities became the reality. People would go nuts. There might even be flame-throwers involved. In any case, FWD is reporting that H&M and Prada are having initial discussions about collaborating on a collection of clothing and accessories. Granted this information is unconfirmed, but a possibility nonetheless. Exciting, isn't it though?
>> Marilyn Manson creeps me out a bit, I'm not going to lie. But in his wedding pictures, he looks great -- so does Dita, as always (She has a 17" waist from corsets!). I love the gothic feel of them (in the Victorian sense) -- and the wedding looks like it was absolutely beautiful. I was going to buy the March US Vogue just to see all the ads, but these pictures seal the deal -- I have to have them in print.
The rest of the pictures (and the article) can be seen here.
>> Two shall we say "interesting" pieces of news came up today:
Number one: For all of you who kept wondering why Jenna Jameson was showing up in NY Fashion Week pictures, it's because she was "doing a bit of research" -- for a fashion line (say what?). She took notes at Badgley Mishka, BCBG, Marc Jacobs, Luca Luca, and Heatherette: "All the good ones. I want to be edgy, and I want to cater to the everyday girl." (I don't even need to comment on this one.)
Number two: Julien MacDonald is topping Paris Hilton to become the world's biggest supermodel after doing the catwalk thing for his London Fashion Week show. "She was incredible! She went beyond my expectations. She was absolutely amazing. She is a Hollywood star. She came from the other side of the world to model in my show tonight. I think people should be honored to see her walk down the runway. She is such a young and beautiful woman." (Let's just say, if she does become a supermodel, the biggest one or not, I will crawl into a hole somewhere and die.)
MacDonald added, "Women aspire to be like Paris, because she is young and exciting and she is not afraid to do what she wants to do. I am very happy - over the moon that she modeled for me tonight." (Yes, that's right. We alll want to be like Paris. It's her name that gets us -- we just can't help but fall in love.)
