Just strap me in and prop me up in the corner

Does anyone else feel like the universe is kind of fucking with all of us right now? Yeah me to. I think a little straight jacket time could benefit us all from time to time.  But instead of your usual dull white with silver hardware jacket, I would love to be ensconced in this little number below for a few days.

Jesus Christ PETA! Relax, and Let the Gays Have their Fur

Ok, I know fur is bad and awful blah blah bah.  But I'm a fur whore and not afraid to say it.  I love to see regal ladies in their floor length minx's, boho girls in fur vests.  And I loves me my silver fox stole and so does figure skating power house and master showman Johnny Weir.  He skated to Gaga for crying out loud! Are we really surprised that he wanted to add a tasteful fur trim to his sparking bodysuit.  And who wouldn't want to stand out with a little fur guge?  Those poor sports at PETA thats who!  

On January 17 Johnny Weir did his free skate in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships wearing a bodysuit with a hint of fox fur on the shoulder. Animal-rights groups, predictably, are not having it. One such organization, called Friends of Animals, posted an open letter to Weir on their site asking him not to wear fur. They also contacted his costume designer, Stephanie Handler, yesterday. The AP explains:

Weir loves fashion, and his costumes tend to be on the avant-garde — some would say extreme — side. When the three-time U.S. champion redesigned his free skate costume before nationals, he had Handler add a tuft of white fox fur to the left shoulder.

Weir said he thought the costume was "lovely," but Friends of Animals disagreed.

"I totally get the dirtiness of the fur industry and how terrible it is to animals. But it's not something that's the No. 1 priority in my life," Weir added. He also notes the thousands of people dying in Haiti and said he prefers to focus his energy on causes related to humans. "While that may be callous and bad of me, it's my choice."

Forgive me Gaga for I have sinned

I just don't know how to explain how this happened, it doesn't make sense. The 2nd coming of the Messiha is performing in our fair city and I did not attend.  I don't know what my penance will be but I'm sure it will be harsh and I will like it and say thank you.  

Baby I can't tonight I have a headache

                                                           Dry Heaving from Boredom 
So a few days ago I half heatedly sharpened my claws and with a resigned indifference licked my chops in preparation to dive into the Golden Globes.  I mean it's the fucking Golden Globes, the cherry popping of award season,  Christina Hendricks's breasts cemented a special place in my heart draped in cream.  But as you could tell my I was not on my game.  Nothing inspired me, I just like blah didn't care.  Even the girls I love Tina, January, Christina.  Even my sweet Marion. I'm sorry girls I just couldn't get up for you.  But the SAG's are this weekend, and before you know it it's Oscar time.  And I will be well fed, rested, in fighting shape and ready to feast.   Meow babies

Listen to my girlfriend, she's a smarty




(via modellesbians)

from one usual unusual to another…

there’s a difference (some thoughts):

gay: denotatively referring to having sexual relationships with those of the same gender, colloquially tends to mean a more hegemonic identity, less radically-inclined politically (perhaps more gender conforming or explicit in their sexuality).  in some communities, thought to adhere to a more rigid gender binary.  may see sexual preference as the only difference separating one’s self from conventional norms and often espouse hrc values.

queer:  often used as a blanket term for the spectrum of members in the lgbtq community.  can encompass identities along both the gender and sexuality spectrums and often associated with more radical politics and individuals that may not hold the gender binary in such high esteem, as it acknowledges relationships that cannot be defined within the confines of the prefixes “homo” or “hetero” and sexual attractions or personal identities that may not fit cleanly into and/or categories.

of course, language is cumbersome and adaptable…as are identities.

reclamations, alterations, abuse, and misuse (as long as it’s well-informed!) encouraged.

Really Vogue? Really?

So lambs, just a warning.  I'm in a bit of mood today and things are going to get a little catty.  I'll feel better perhaps you'll find my tangents amusing and we will all sleep that much better for it.  

Our first target, February Vogue.  
Really? Jessica Biel? I mean who else just fell right asleep?  And this is difficult because I want to love the house that Wintour built I really do.  There is no denying it's an institution .  But come the fuck on.  This girls lack of both personal style and actual non action related movie talent leave me shaking my head in disillusion. Yes J. Biel wears beautiful gowns and straps herself into a bandage dress for the men's mags.  But this does not a stylish girl make. Honey is all stylist not substance.

A big hug from sweet baby jesus

That is really the only way to explain what lies in the images below. David LaChapelle the man who I'm convinced can peer into my mind from time time. And Our Lady of Gaga have collaborated on a set of photos. That's right people,THIS IS NOT A DRILL. These two genius powerhouses have combined forces and created a magnificent, bloody, politically charged, cluster fuck of amazing.   Complete with Thierry Mugler metal body cast mirrored wheelchairs. Oh and did I mention that there Kanye makes a cameo 
Enjoy babies

Apparently not like riding a bike

My beautiful and angsyt love 

The Golden Globs, Lets Break it down

So as you may or may not know I LOVE award season. I love the pre-show, the sexy bitches, the hot messes, the uncomfortable pairings of presenters. I just love love love it all. And the best part about all it is watching them with my gal Friday, one Ms. Jack Germain. As well as the colorful commentary via text from my best girl Erin.  We laugh and cry together and through it all our critical lens remained sharp as a scalpel. So enough niceties lets really talk it out.. Claws out kittens

Hands Down, Killed IT

I had chosen my Golden Glob favorites long before the show started so why not start there.  There will be plenty of time to be catty tomorrow. But for now lets be ladies shall we.  Here are few of my girls that worked it out like I knew they would.  


January Jones in Lanvn
Oh Miss Jones never fails to delight. She's modern but gives us just enough Betty Draper to satisfy our 60's sweet tooth. The head band, the saitin and the lip.  She just is works it out like it ain't no thang.  Although JJ, between you and me, the smile looks a little crazy so lets tone that down.

 Leah Michelle, Oscar de la Renta
                                 The wrapped bodice and full ruffled skirt.  It screams of the big O. I like to imagine that Beyonce's "Ego" was playing in her mind as Ms. Michelle floated down red the red carpet.  Because this is a girl who can sing Barbara, so in other words "She can bak it up" 

                                                            Tina Fey, Zac Posen
Yes you did Tina Fey.  She kept it New York and wore herself the Zac Posen tea length strapless gown of my dreams. Then she topped that shit with Fred Leighton jewels and finished with Christian Louboutin (which I know is not technically New York, but just roll with it).  I am lizzing!

                                                    Christina Hendricks, Christian Siriano
Do you hear that May West hip sway walk music in you head when you look at this photo?  No?  Ok maybe thats just me.  Christina Hendricks has been my perenial favorite at awards shows and events for some time she works that figure like motherfu**er and that face could melt the clothes off of any married executive or just anyone really.  


A little Golden Globe break

I'm busy watching the Golden Globes and making snide remarks to my dear friend Jack. But here is a little something to read about on the comercials.

Do we really care what is in Rachel Zoe's handbag?I mean I kind of do, and I know you do too

Chin up Chest out

Hello kittens,

I am very intimidated to write this first post but we have to start somewhere. I love pop culture in all its forms. Fashion and music are necessary to my survival. So this is going to be a place where I let you know about cool shit that I hear about. And if you hear about something you think I'd like, holla. I don't know exactly where we're going with this but at least we're together Okay here we go, smile big.
