Will someone PLEASE give Grace Coddington her own reality TV show? Please?

And please, for the life of god, invite my favourite Edward Enninful and Steven Meisel to Big Brother or something like that.

Thank you.

[Update – 5:14PM: I realized I left out Hamish Bowles who I love very much. But yes, I'd love to see him come out with exercise videos.]

And Emily Sylvana Soto-Ward?

That's all.

Mwah mwah.

    It goes without saying. Doesn’t it??? Naturally, we all assume BryanBoy will represent the Philippines,,, And why the hell does Phil get his own Pines???

  2. i have read there’s a movie coming out titled “the september issue”, a documentary on how vogue produces it’s thickest issue and grace is there.not sure.

    this year is not the first time andre will be a judge. he was one of the judges back in 2000 where miss india won. my bet this year are russia, south africa and china.

  4. I am dying to see how will Andre score the contestants this year! I remember back in 2000 that Miss Venezuela got scores of 9.00 up with other judges. Venezuelans usually don’t get scores lower than 9.10 in Miss Universe. Andre gave Venezuela a 7.00! no one gives a 7.00 in beauty pageants…only Andre! hahahaha My jaw dropped to the core of the earth! EVIL & BRUTALLY DELICIOUS!!!!! LOL! Well, Since my Andre is judging again I know that he will not allow shamuses to win. so congrats now to thinspirations this year ‘cuz you are inches away from the crown…Miss Albania, Kosovo, Russia.

  5. Hamish in exercise videos is completely genius! What would be even better is if he could somehow incorporate his entire couture collection! Squats in Givenchy. My god.
