IMITATION = SINCEREST OF FLATTERY

Could we say that Jeremy Scott‘s FW11 collection poked fun at Prada’s well-received SS11 collection? I think it’s safe to say, yes; even down to the stripes. Assuming Mr. Scott’s furry accessories are faux, they are deliciously kitsch. They won’t bear a price tag relatively close to the near $5,000 tag a là Prada. Therefore, could J.Scott have a hit on his hands (ultimately, thanks to Miuccia)?

GOLDEN GLOBES 2011 – TOP 4

Let me cut right to the chase: This week, in addition to regular posts, I’ll be sharing with you highlights, in my opinion, from this years annual Golden Globes; those that took me to orgasm, and those that left me limp, permanently.

Top 4 The Winners, minus Olivia Wilde in Marchesa. Frankly, it was too prom-like. Also, the straight hair wasn’t working for me (ahem, Sandra, ahem). Anyways, on to those who nailed it:

#4 Tilda Swinton in Jil Sander

Leave it to the queen (king?) of androgyny to bring editorial delights a la red carpet. At first, I was expecting her to roll up in a Lanvin frock, up-staging  Ms. Moore, tenfold. Knowing that Tilda is one to keep up with the seasons, Lanvin SS11 was too colorful + feminine for her sense of style. To no real surprise, she dons the epitome of an androgynous dress: a man-inspired white shirt on top, and a gorgeous champagne column skirt on the bottom. Little to no accessories; less is way more, in this case.

#3 Leighton Meester in Burberry

A lot of you will argue with me on this one, but f#%k you. The only thing I could see as an issue with Leighton in this Burberrry frock, is if she was nominated. For our Queen B, this is totally muting what we normally expect to see her in. I think it was a smart for her to go in subtly (but fabulously), as she+the show were not nominated. It’s simple and perfectly accessorized. Winna winna, chicken dinna.

FANNY

Walter Van Bierendonck. I think it’s safe to say that Ciara brought worldwide attention to the quirky Belgian designer, by rocking one if his FW10 fanny packs in her sexy video for “Gimme Dat” (see shot after the jump).

While browsing on thecorner, I came across one of Walter’s…

ONTO PAPER

So, I designed a pair of sunglasses. Mind you, I switched from art to band (killed the tenor sax). I love this pair. Stay tuned for more designs (better ones).

GEORGIA-A-A-AH ♫

I’m sorry, but fuck all the other housewives nationwide (Bethenny, I still love you). The Real Housewives of Atlanta are it! Season 3. Let’s do it. In addition to our veterans (Kim, Shereé, and NeNe♥), Kandi’s back, and we welcome model Cynthia Bailey, and attorney Phaedra Parks. I cannot get enough of these women (can you blame me?).

(Left to Right) Phaedra, Kim, Kandi, Shereé, Cynthia, and NeNe.

Some words for the ladies…
