Small shoes

Guess the designer who sent this poor girl down the runway on a shoe that’s 10 times smaller than her feet.

D&G Spring/Summer 2008

FINAAAAAAALLLYYY. I love Milan and Paris collections. I think most of you will agree with me on this one.  Their runway shows — and the clothes — are a lot more exciting than the ones we see on Bryant Park. Oops. There. I’ve said it. Hah! Anyhoo, here’s the D&G Spring/Summer 2008 fashion show video. Yes my minions, it’s already up. Gotta love teh internets

Isn’t it funny how Natasha Poly is the only catwalker out there who can walk gracefully in flats? That’s why I hate them damn flats — anyone in flat footwear walks like a penguin! If I had a choice I’d wear 6-inch shoes day in/day out!

Anyway… click click click for more photos.

When Anna Wintour says jump… JUMP!

When Anna Wintour says jump… JUMP!

Model on a pogo stick! The trampoline is Vogue’s favourite showjumper Caroline Trentini’s best friend. I hate to say this but I do kinda feel sorry for her in a way, because for the most part, all she does is jump, leap, jump in a studio for every issue of Vogue for the past god knows how long now. Is this some sort of a conspiracy? Is Conde Nast on the verge of bankruptcy hence all these Caroline Trentini studio jump shots? The drag queens at Jezebel did a hilarious Caption Caroline entry last month. Does Conde Nast NOT have a budget to send Caroline off somewhere? Why do I have a feeling all these studio jumping shots were taken like once or twice this year and then Vogue published all the photos by spreading em out in various issues as they see fit?

Jump!

See for yourself. Click click click for Caroline Trentini’s showjumping bonanza!

Charlize Theron October 2007 Vogue Cover shot by Mario Testino
TFS

Charlize Theron was on the cover of October 2000 and October 2004 American Vogue. Is this creepy or what?

Charlize Theron Vogue Covers

Based on these three Vogue covers, when will South African actress Charlize Theron re-appear on the cover American Vogue? Let’s do a little math quiz shall we?

October 2000 (+ 4 years)
October 2004 (+3 years)
October 2007 (+2 years)
October 2009 (+1 year)
October 2010

If you follow the sequence above, you’ll need to add +2 years so October 2009 is going to be Ms. Theron’s next cover. Place your bets now!!!!  Predictable much? Oh hell no. American Vogue is NEVER repetitive, NEVER predictable. That’s why we love Anna.

Fuck me with a fruitcake!!

21/09/2007, Fashion

Fuck me with a fruitcake!!

Ok this is embarassing.

I just got word from someone that the Aranaz bag that was featured on the Tyra show wasn’t designed by Manila-based designer "Aranaz". It was designed by another Philippine-related designer based in the US named "Ananas". If that’s the case then fuck me with a fruitcake for my mistake. What was I thinking?

Ananas Bags

Meet Ananas of www.ananascollection.com.

After four years spent living in Tokyo,  designer Jennifer Baum Lagdameo found herself living in the Philippines where she was inspired by the traditional textile techniques and the indigenous materials. Ananas started from a small collection of  abaca (a natural fiber) handbags  and developed into a  retro-chic collection of both leather and abaca that maintains the natural vibe by utilizing organic materials from the Philippines such as coconut shells, mother-of-pearl shells and polished native woods. As Ananas continues to evolve, Lagdameo is continuously experimenting and designing with new textiles and materials creating unique products unlike anything else on the market. Ananas handbags are all handmade in New York City.

Ananas is available in fine boutiques and select department stores across North America and Japan.

Ananas bags are everywhere, Bazaar, Lucky, you name it….

Ananas Bags

I guess the bag that was featured on the Tyra show was "Ananas" and *NOT* Aranaz. And there I was thinking… Tyra HUUUUWAAAATTTT?? Remember third world porn star Juliana Palermo (sp??) what’s her name who made a huge PR stunt (in the Philippine media) because she was a guest on the Tyra show and Tyra picked her for like 5 seconds?

Anyway, SORRRRRY for the mix up!!!!!! Hahahaha and thanks for the heads-up. Oh and Supercow, tsk tsk tsk.

Aranaz Bags on Tyra Banks Show

Aranaz Bags on Tyra Banks Show

Woah. Woah woah woah woah. Filipino handbag brand "Aranaz" was mentioned on the Tyra show ( "How to Spot Fakes" episode). Congrats! Do I smell a price increase? Ladies, run, don’t walk, run to Powerplant (?) and buy those Aranaz bags before she pulls a Bea or Celestina! LOL

   

From Supercow:

Tyra is doing a show on counterfeit designer labels while I’m posting
this. And guess what label’s catching the eye of label bandits? Aranaz!

They invited the girl behind the counterfeitchic.com site and she made Aranaz’s bag one of her counterfiet samples alongside LV, Chanel and Coach.

Here’s the $64 million question: errr how can someone copy Aranaz?

Birkenstock Gizeh Sandal

[Edit: 12:01AM - I just realized I bloody have photographic memory for remembering a December 2001 Vogue Editorial! God dammnnnn I'm such a fashion victim.]

[Edit: 12:20AM - REMEMBER WHEN RACHEL "I AM MORE INFLUENTIAL THAN ANNA WINTOUR" ZOE "STYLED" NICOLE RICHIE IN APRIL 2006? GUESS WHAT, AMERICAN VOGUE PUBLISHED A SIMILAR OUTFIT BACK IN DECEMBER OF 2001!!!! TEAM ANNA WINTOUR!!!]

I’ll let you in on a little secret. I hate feet. I really do. I’m not sure if you remember this but there was a time when I met this Italian guy with a weird foot fetish – he made me step on fruit (as in real fruit… a bowl of strawberries) until I squished it good… and the only time he’ll have an orgasm is when his nutsack is rubbing against my foot. So yeah, I just hate feet. I HATE HATE HATE FEET! Hearing the word "feet" is enough to send chills running down my spine. I will never understand those foot fetiSHITS who like to lick/eat feet. Soo gross. Feet are disgusting. I think my feet are disgusting. If there is one part of my body that I am so self-conscious about it’s my feet. My toes are shaped weird and my little pinky toes are horrible. Ingrown much? I also hate male feet. There is nothing more horrid in this world than a pasty, pale British guy’s feet in SIZE 14, feet so white you can see veins and nails so long they practically look like claws. Oh yes, I’ve seen it all! I guess that’s one of the reasons why I don’t really wear flip flops. I’m not insane to show my fugly feet to the world, thanks very much.
