The second photo reminded me immediately of Phillipe Halsman’s portrait (one of many) of Marilyn Monroe…
Who do you think has the best and worst catwalk walk of all time?
BEST:MOSES – HE WALKED ON WATER…!
WORST: ANYONE WHO HAS NOT SEEN ME.
Models falling on the catwalk – are they just doing it for attention?
NO, SOME TRIP OVER THE DRESS OR LOSE THEIR FOOTING IN HIGH HEELS, OR SOME JUST CAN’T CHEW AND WALK AT THE SAME TIME.
Are designers cruel giving models crazy shoes to walk in?
NO, THEY ARE NOT CRUEL THEY ARE BEING CREATIVE.
Talking of crazy heels, have you seen Alexander McQueen’s Armadillo shoes?
Lady Gaga’s worn them in her latest video, how do you rate her strut in them?
ON A SCALE FROM 1 -10, I WILL SAY NINE FOR NERVE TO MAKE THE ATTEMPT.
Is it wrong to break into a catwalk strut to get a man’s attention?
YES, HE MAY THINK YOUR SELLING MORE THAN CLOTHES… YOU’RE CRAZY, OR HAD A BAD HIP REPLACEMENT.
Why do male models always look like they’re walking somewhere they don’t want to go?
BECAUSE I BELIEVE THEY STILL THINK IT’S A BUSINESS FOR WOMEN AND GAY MEN, SO THEY ARE WALKING SOMEWHERE I THINK BETWEEN THE BANK AND THE GYM.
Can you please teach Julia Roberts how to walk in a dress? Seriously, that woman needs help…
ONLY IF JULIA, WHO I ADORE, CALLS ME…! I MOST CERTAINLY WILL HELP HER. IF I DON’T GRAB THE DRESS FIRST..
Have you ever fallen over in public ? Be honest…!
YES. RED CROPPED WOOL JACKET, PRINTED VERSACE JEANS, AND RED SUEDE NANCY GIALLOMBARDO HAND-MADE SHOES, AND BLACK LEATHER BAG ON 23RD ST AND 5TH AVE AT 2:10 P.M. IN FRONT OF A NEW YORK CITY BUS.
For S/S’10 the kitten heel is back (eek!), does this sound like a good plan or an atrocious idea?
I THINK IT’S A GREAT PLAN FOR WOMEN WHO WANT TO START WEARING HEELS AND MAY BE AFRAID TO WEAR THE STILETTO OR SKYSCRAPER PLATFORM IN “WALKING IN HEELS 101”
It’s almost New Year’s Eve, which means working your best outfit of the whole year. Any suggestions?
AS LONG AS YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE IT CAN BE TIGHT, SHORT, LONG , BEADED, FULL, TAILORED, SIMPLE AND CHIC, READY TO WEAR, COUTURE, TARGET, H&M, DIOR OR CHANEL. JUST CLICK YOUR HEELS (AND THE CHAMPAGNE GLASS) AND RING IN THE NEW YEAR…SAFE AND IN STYLE.
What’s next for you? A clothing line? A work out video? Maybe a range of heels?
REST…! MAYBE…! HELL, NO…! A THOUGHT…!

…and Depp as Dillinger…
Siiiiiigh. I’m hopeless. I stayed up until 2 a.m. to watch it online a few weeks ago… it took me forever to fall asleep after that. AHHHH. It’s SO GOOD.
Gotta love Meryl…
So here it is. 11:32 pm. I’ve just nearly finished my prototype homecoming dress.. I sort of need to get it done, since the dance is, umm, SATURDAY. Yeah. That plus NHS app plus school plus XC (good race the other day!) plus PSAT coming up… agh. Stress/no free time much?
And Paris is starting. And I’m missing it. The only thing I have time for is to go to WWD and glance at the cover images. Gareth Pugh looked sweet, as did Fendi… and so many others… *sigh*. Maybe this sunday… nope, I’ll be collecting canned food for Gleaner’s. Sigh.
On the bright side, I’ve rediscovered Tyson Ritter (in Gives You Hell…. MMMMMMMMmmmm….)
Mmm. Gorgeous boys make the world go round.
As we are all well aware, all things studded, leather, black, and zipped are a major element of this fall’s trends. Girl On A Motorcycle [1968, starring Marianne Faithfull] seems to perfectly embody that spirit: rebellious, edgy, paving-your-own-path, etc…
If you set out to watch the film, though, be warned: it’s fairly graphic and on the edge of, um, rather naughty (so I’ve read). Just sayin’.
Gotta love the 60s! ~ r
