You know, celebs really must check themselves thoroughly before walking a red carpet.  Hello!  Fabric (especially black) can be super-see-thru because of camera lights.

Clearly, this woman hasn't learned this yet - she really should have Googled "barbra streisand oscar dress 1969" before she left the house.

Kleptomaniacs at NYFW

Have almost become 'out of style' but fear not...the fashion snark is back, thanks to Lindsay Lohan.

Looking more orange than ever, she's graced us with her presence at New York Fashion Week

Showing up topless to a Cynthia Rowley show, complete with the 'Cat-eye' and porn star lips

One can only imagine the endless thoughts of Kleptomania dancing around in her head....

Better find your escape route first, Lindsay.

The Mother of All Mothers

Joan Crawford

With clothes like that, it's no wonder she detested wire hangers....who could blame her?

We hear ya, Joanie!

Happy Mother's Day!

Classic Heidi

Before the title of Mom, before Seal and way before Project Runway, Heidi Klum was the 'It' model...and not just for those push-up bras at Victoria's Secret.

'All About Ease'

Good God, remember those hideous spray-painted LV's?  I'm ashamed to admit that I had one.

Unfortunately, I've never had these; legs with no end

Christian Dior: Designer Wanted, Apply Within

No matter how glamorous and magical the life of a famous fashion designer appears to be, we all must remember; you can’t judge a book by its cover. For fashion designers are no more perfect than you and I. In fact, they fuck things up just as much as we do but there is a difference: the repercussion factor is a lot higher for them.

John Galliano knows this first-hand.

For me, his departure is bitter-sweet. He’s disgustingly racist but could design the shit out of a piece of fabric. Sigh.

After looking at the runway images of what will be his last collection for Dior, I’m left with the overwhelming need to purchase a pair of knickerbockers.

How cute are these bloody pants? 

Still, this lovely collection doesn’t make up for his behavior. Let’s face it; he’s over.  And rightly so.

But I’m still kind of annoyed at something. Why did it take this long to ‘out’ him for his disgusting, racist remarks? You’re telling me that these women who filmed him back in October 2010 and the couple who accused him last month were the ONLY witnesses--ever? 
Sorry but talk like that doesn't happen overnight.

(I was going to place that You Tube video of him, spewing hate, on this post but decided against it--the language is just too vile)

The Career of John Galliano, RIP

Marchesa: The Head-Scratcher

So, I just checked out the images from Marchesa's New York show today and loved most of the looks.  This tends to happen quite often with this brand; the shows are lovely, the website has absolutely gorgeous styles to offer, yet this shit happens all over the red carpet:

T to the A to the C to the K to the Y

(and there are many more sad images where these came from)

That was the name of the Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2005 RTW show that will forever be one of the best displays of fashion and art, in history.  In my opinion, of course.

It's one year ago today that we lost him so instead of thinking about that terrible day, let's celebrate and enjoy all the marvelous contributions he made to fashion over his (short) lifetime.

It's Only a Game
I guess you could say, this collection was kind of like his 'best of' or 'greatest hits' as he had a little bit of everything he was known for (up until that time) displayed on models atop a giant chessboard.

Of course, beneath the frills and playfulness of the clothing, some there usually was with McQueen collections.

This particular show was based on some dark movie (which I have yet to see) called Picnic at Hanging Rock.  Basically, it's about some schoolgirls who go missing after an outing with one of their teachers.

Here's the link to its IMDB:

Watch the Spring 2005 RTW show at length--it's pure genius:

Jason Stackhouse Does LAX

If you don't know who this is, you're not watching enough television.  Or sadly, you're not watching True Blood.

Looking quite monochromatic, Ryan Kwanten who plays the delicious Jason Stackhouse on True Blood, arrives at LAX yesterday.

The thing about mens style is; it's difficult to detect if he's really thought about his outfit or just threw something on for a flight.  And which of the two is sexier? 

In this case, when you look this good, does it really matter?

The answer is: yes!

Imagine for a moment he showed up to LAX in a Christian Audigier hoody, baseball cap and Dockers. 
If this were the case, he certainly wouldn't be featured on this blog unless he was chosen for the 'DOA'.

We'll leave you with some classic Jason:

True Blood returns for it's 4th season this summer so...Tune in!

Month of McQueen: The Givenchy Years, Part 1

In 1996, at the age of 27-years-old, Lee Alexander McQueen succeeded John Galliano for head designer at Givenchy.
Already notorious for speaking his mind, he called his first Givenchy couture collection, 'crap'.

Oh, and then he called the founder, 'irrelevant'.

October 15, 1996
Coming of age for an enfant terrible

ALEXANDER McQUEEN, the enfant terrible of British fashion, was appointed chief designer at Givenchy yesterday.
The 27-year-old east Londoner, who showed his most recent collection in a swimming pool and is best known for creating "bumster" trousers - cut alarmingly low at the back - will design haute couture and ready-to-wear as well as his own label.
He follows John Galliano, 36, the son of a south London plumber, who took over at Givenchy in 1995 and moves on to head the larger house of Christian Dior.
Although Galliano had long been tipped for the Dior job, McQueen's appointment was less certain. Everyone from Vivienne Westwood to Jean-Paul Gaultier was rumoured to have been considered. McQueen was reported to have turned down the job, but he had a change of heart last week and travelled to Paris to sign the contract.
Givenchy's brief statement spoke of McQueen's "brilliant creativity, combined with his technical mastery", which would "ensure the ongoing evolution of Givenchy's tradition of elegance".

Eastender triumphs with Paris collection

We may be grasping at straws here but there are some similarities between this collection and his last two Womenswear collections.....

Wondering, if interviewed now, would he still call this first collection for Givenchy, 'crap' or just the beginnings of runway awesomeness.

Quotes from a rare interview, with CNN in 2007:

"Once I finish designing the show collection, I start thinking about the customer."

"There's nothing more stunning than someone who understands what style is."

February 2011: Month of McQueen

February 11th will mark the day we lost one of the most influential artist's in fashion history.

To pay homage to the designer we loved for so many years, who kept us on our fashion toes every season, we're dedicating the blog this month to Alexander McQueen.

Tomorrow on the Month of McQueen:

Fake n' Bake

At the launch of her new swimwear line for Next, Geri Halliwell showed up looking like a shiny orange.

Girl needs to step away from the tanning booth.  Clearly, she needs an intervention.

She has so much potential but she needs a stylist who doesn't hate her.

But what a Bod, huh?!

It's actually a good thing she's not singing anymore.  We really couldn't live through another 'It's Raining Men'.  Ouch!

She's Always Like This

No. Helena Bonham Carter is not responsible for red carpet high jinks.  She's always like this....

Here she is, running errands today in London.  Running errands.  Like this.  God bless her!
