Big Brother, season 11 -- United Kingdom

A cornucopia of bad taste.....

The rainbow dress was the winner of BB11.  Hopefully she'll buy some decent clothes with her money.  And perhaps some shoes.

Artist Spotlight: Helmut Newton

I fell in love with Helmut Newton in the early 90's, after stealing a PHOTO magazine (France) from my dentist's office.
On the cover that month: Nadja Auermann, photographed by none other than Helmut Newton.

Since that serendipitous day, I've collected ALL of his wonderful books and any biography I could get my hands on.  

To this day, no other photographer has come close to making me feel the way I do when I see a Newton B&W photo.

He was a master who, to this day, is constantly being copied.

He had a 'thing' for strong women

His wife, June shot a bunch of footage during his busy days in fashion in the early 90's--the dawn of the Supermodel & the House of Versace:

Karl Lagerfeld Does Saint Tropez

As only Karl can do.....

In head-to-toe white, cruising Saint Tropez in a convertible Rolls Royce.

With some seriously hot Arm Candy!

If this cutie wasn't with Karl, he would be on our DOA list!  What's with the scruffy Nike Air Force 1's?  ewww

He stands out like a sore but fabulous thumb, non?

Oh, KarlyPooh...we adore you!

Life-size Barbie's, Courtesy of The Incredible Bra Launch @ Victoria's Secret

Imagine waking up one morning, only to find one of these outfit's waiting for you to slip into?

Models (from left to right) Erin Heatherton, Chanel Iman & Candice Swanepoel at VS's "The Incredible Bra" Launch yesterday.

"Check out these assets"

"Ha, Ha!  I never have to buy lingerie again.  Don't hate!"

"What am I supposed to do with this thing?"

I wonder if Supermodels get tired of this kind of cheesiness?
I know I do.

We really don't have anything to say--we'll let the horrendousness speak for itself.

Paloma Faith: The Unexplained

Fashion Autopsy Hearts Paloma Faith not only because her music is fantastic but her style defies explanation--and validation.

Here she is, making an appearance at BBC radio, Friday, July 30th...wearing a Hershey's Kiss on her head!

Why does this work on her?  We don't know....this is just one of the many mysteries of Style. 

When you go it, you got it.

Trying to dissect her style would be almost as difficult as trying to dissect Lady Gaga's fondness for defacing Hermes Birken bags.

Sometimes, style doesn't have to answer tough questions.  Sometimes, it just is.
