My love for Anna Wintour was reinforced, thanks to her feature on last night’s 60 Minutes. I would love to embed the video but CBS has a bloody problem with autoplay. I tried to modify the code by disabling it but it didn’t work for some strange reason.
There are two things I dislike about this feature. First, I don’t like how Morley somewhat made a mockery out of the characters in fashion. Was it REALLY necessary to point out the outsider’s view of the fashion world? I found it so offensive how he used terms such as “part rocky horror show” (cue Gareth Pugh), “clothes fit for a cadaver” and “campy followers” (cue the iconic Anna Piaggi). It’s funny alright but I don’t think he’s doing the industry a favour by mocking them. I’m sure he could do a better job making the American public understand what the industry is about: to inspire, to dress outside your comfort zone, to think outside the box, to express ourselves creatively…
Second — I find it so tedious that the media ALWAYS, ALWAYS references The Devil Wears Prada when doing something on Anna. So a former Vogue staffer wrote a book based on her experiences and the movie became a hit, yes. But any Editor, or boss for that matter, could be as (or even be MORE) demanding or hardcore as the character portrayed. Can’t Anna get a reprieve for a change?
Anyway, I think I’m alone in saying this but I really do have this voice at the back of my head that says Anna is truly a nice person. She may look tough on the outside (as part of her job) but in reality, I’m sure she’s a real softie. Again, maybe it’s just me. What do y’all think?

What is it with everyone doing “designer” mash-ups these days? Remember those Slow & Steady Wins the Race hybrid bags? Well, ladies and gays, meet the ultimate in men’s sneakers: SoleFood’s custom sneakers named “Canal Street Air Force One”. How many brands can you spot in one photo? I spy with my Fendi Spy… Rolex, Chanel, Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci.
This has got to be the worst pair of sneakers on the face of the planet.
How does it make you feel? I betchu five dolla Rick Ross owns a pair.
OMG. The gender bending ferocity of Michael Jackson never stops… a few weeks ago, you’ve seen him wore that swarovski-encrusted t-shirt from Balmain’s fall/winter 2009 collection. Well, feast your eyes on this.
It’s Wacko Jacko rockin’ a look from Givenchy fall/winter 2007. Gemma Ward wore it on the runway a few years back.Amazing!!!!!
I can’t for the life of god remember what it was I searched on YouTube earlier this week but lemme tell you, I think I’ve discovered my favourite comedienne of all time. That’s right. Holy Mary Manolo batman, Catherine Tate is the funniest woman EVER! OK fine, she’s up there with Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders.
What is it with British television? They always, ALWAYS have the funniest shows EVER! I love the sense of humor. This sort of shit won’t fly in America or in the third world where absolutely everything has to be politically-correct or else you’ll suffer the wrath of the government (FCC/USA) or the masses (Philippines).
I’ve compiled some of my favourite Catherine Tate skits for your viewing pleasure. I love how she plays different characters. Get ready to laugh. You are SO gonna die!!! She even poked fun at the Queen and asked her point-blank “are you disrespecting me? are you calling my mum a prostitute?”.
