!! OMG, C’est chic le freak-in’ old: Advanced Style, Age and Beauty !!


Speaking of fashion faux-pas, being old has all kinds of perks; you don’t have to go to work, you get to play ‘tiddlywinks’ all day, you’re allowed to peepee in your panties without haters hating on you. But the best thing is, you’ve made years and years of fashion faux pas’ so hopefully by process of elimination you find yourself older and chic-er every single day. And then you die!

“I don’t wanna go around like a dreary old lady”
“Too many people are so afraid and they just wanna do what everybody else does and look like everybody else”

!! OMG, Herpen I can have one of these dresses: Iris Van Herpen !!


Björk’sflavouritedesignerIris Van Herpen’s Spring/Summer 2013 Haute Couture Collection is an EXOSKELETAL UNDER~OCEANIC DREAM!
With the theme of UNTAPPED HUMAN ENERGY the Dutch designer worked with TESLA Coil ‘Lord of Lightning’ Carlos Van Camp and 3D-print architect Neri Oxman to give bath-birth to these amazing fashion water babies.
Her clothes-children are like a monochromatic paper version of Alexander Mcqueen’s final [attended] collection, showcasing a sea anemone cocktail dress and coral cocoon shrug.
If this is all a bit other-under-worldy for you, Iris is also working on a ready-to-wear collection, with Grimes as her musical muse.

!! OMG, pop your finger in his flesh-hoop: Sruli Recht’s Forget-Me-Knot Ring !!

If someone gave me this ring for Valentine’s day, I guarantee I would definitely forget-them-knot!
Sruli Recht creates some of the most innovative and beautiful garments and jewellery in the world. He is always asking questions about the use of animal products in fashion. He has previously created pieces from stillborn lamb leather and silk-injected goat’s skins, and recently documented a performance/surgery during which he had a 110mm x 10mm strip of skin from his abdomen removed, which was salted, tanned and mounted to a 24kt gold ring, which can be purchased for €350,000.

You can watch the ‘performance’ after the jump. It’s NOT SAFE FOR TWERK…it’s barely safe for anywhere; it’s pretty gross but that ring is pretty beautiful though.
So inspiring! I’m off to my kitchenette to drink the rest of that oozo, grab a bread knife and get going with my circumcision valentines ring, I can’t afford gold so it’s just going to be a fleshy hoop really.

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]

!! OMG, “I also look really fierce in a dress”: Casey Legler; [fe]male model !!


Like Andrej Pejić, but the other way around; New York-based, French-born swimmer and “art-maker” Casey Legler is the first female signed to Ford Models’ male division. She spoke to Time last year about her relationship to gender-types. She spoke not of gender definition, but instead of her experience and wishes of gender freedom:

“We have very specific ways in which we define ourselves as men or women and I think sometimes they can be a bit limiting…What I wish is that we all get to be exactly who we are…With [such] fluidity…[there is] this notion of freedom…that is saying ‘look, there is this other way'”

!! OMG, What a Tyrade: North Korean Tyra-Hating Propaganda !!


Ok, well erm, I can’t claim that I didn’t make comment on Tyra’s sparkly Vaseline frenzy situation, although whatever I had to say was masked with my giggle-voms at how hilarious the whole debacle seemed; tinted with slight sparkly-lube jealousy at not getting any…but that’s the extent of judgements on her, I like her a lot, and love that her show is a portal for more André Leon Talley in my life.
However, almost more insane than all the other western-hating claims that have come from North Korea the last few years, is their vehement repugnance for Miss Banks:

“she now has a talk show where she pretends to be concerned about peoples problems and society in general, even though she has no qualifications to do this…The audience doesn’t question this charade but instead it willingly feeds into her need to talk about herself”

I love that this report speaks of the audience as a SINGLE-MINDED DRONE ENTITY, maybe North Korea just needs a big box of Tyra’s sparkly “biggest beauty secret eveeeeeer”, maybe they too are just a tad jealous that they didn’t get it first time around?!
I can relate to that!
[Thanks Alex!]
