Olympic’s 2012 FASHION GOLD

 

For all us fashion folk and Gen Xers: As if the all-awaited rumors of the Spice Girls reunion wasn’t enough- we got all the fashion/supermodel bonus!

It was as if the Gods of Fashion, Gays, And Girl Power all came and united- Who doesn’t love Models at a Party???

First- George Michael sings, “FREEDOM”, the 90’s anthem to EVERYONE- just watch the music video- every supermodel from the 90’s was in it!

As the different English bands were featured, all of a sudden, David Bowie’s “FASHION” song came on while HUGE trucks featuring large photos of some of Britain’s iconic models. Then… when all trucks were entered- the photos dropped to reveal the actual models inside, dripping in gold designs!!! Oh LORD- it was AMAZING! First Naomi, then Kate, Stella… it was brilliant.

“The VIEW” women need to SHUT the F*** UP

I was just researching something for an article, when I happened to come across a couple-month-old article on Bonnie Fuller’s Hollywoodlife.com (the site is GREAT!). It was a recap of what the women on “The View” thought of William & Kate’s Royal Wedding. These “ladies” need to learn some MANNERS and RESPECT. Especially about ROYALTY that has spanned CENTURIES.

First of all Sherri, she looked absolutely BEAUTIFUL. REGAL. ROYAL. Perhaps the only reason you don’t like it is out of jealousy- you’re SHORT, FAT ASS, and nowhere NEAR her caliber in the looks department. You could NEVER look like this if you tried. LOOK AT YOU:

—————————————————————————————————-

Joy, was that supposed to be funny? Are you trying to be a comedienne again? “A bumblebee with a drinking problem?” I don’t even get it…. She’s not wearing BLACK and yellow, F***ING IDIOT. And when did you become an expert on what Queens wear? How would YOU know if they DO or DON’T wear yellow?? You don’t see queens because you’re not around royalty DUMBASS. You’re making comments just to make them. No one wants to hear that nasal-y whiny voice of yours anyway, so just shut up.

Oh, but she keeps on running her stupid mouth. “Shmata on her head”? “Nunlike”?? “Mother Teresa”??? All I hear is a WHINY New York (married into) Jew making Jewish references. First, here is a picture of Mother Teresa:

I don’t see a resemblance anywhere. Aside from the obvious (looks), a comparison to Mother Teresa should be a compliment- she did wonders in Humanitarian efforts. But instead, you use her as an INSULT. ¬†Since YOU are the “resident Jew” here, YOU should A.)be proud of your fellow people, and B.) know the correct meaning of Shmata: “A yiddish term for a rag, towel, or washclothes”.

I Don’t know WHO you people think YOU ARE to compare RAGS to the MCQUEEN dress that Kate wore on her WEDDING DAY, the most SPECIAL of all days in a woman’s life?? ¬† You, Joy, need to learn some manners, and stop acting like you’re the “hot sh**” at the table. And Sherri, look in the mirror before you critique other’s looks.

When you’re dead and gone, no one’s going to remember you. But Kate and that dress will be in History books.

Joy: maybe we should put a SHMATA over YOUR FACE. Would sure help from the looks of it.

LADIES: Wearing makeup IS NOT a choice!!

I LOVE this story…. this girl is so STUPID!!!!

Harrod’s, one of THE most WELL KNOWN and PRESTIGIOUS shopping destinations in THE WORLD has a former employee complaining she had to quit after being asked to wear makeup….

Melanie Stark is 24, and was sent home TWICE because she opted not to wear makeup. UM…. I WOULD SEND YOU HOME TOO!!! ¬†LOOK AT HER!!!!

"I don't need to wear makeup"

It’s ONE THING to have “natural look”, and ANOTHER to look LIKE THIS at WORK!!!! Especially for a HIGH- END RETAIL STORE!!!!

THE COMPANY DRESS CODE POLICY STATES:

“FULL MAKEUP AT ALL TIME: BASE, BLUSH, FULL EYES (NOT TOO HEAVY) LINER, LIPSTICK, AND GLOSS ARE WORN AT ALL TIMES AND MAINTAINED DISCREETLY. PLEASE TAKE IN TO ACCOUNT THE STORE DISPLAY LIGHTING (WHICH HAS A WASHING OUT EFFECT)”.

If you get hired for a store which ALREADY HAS THESE RULES, then you need to ABIDE by them!!! ¬†WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE that makes you ABOVE them, Melanie?? What makes YOU think you’re SOOOOO special and exempt??

She states, “I was so appalled.” “It was insulting.” “Basically, it was implying it was an improvement.”

Then, “I couldn’t go through with it again, and they weren’t compromising”

( BIIIIG EYE ROLLLLLL….. and BIIIIG SIIIIIGH……)

YOU DUMB STUPID GIRL!!!!! WTF is WRONG with you?????? THEY don’t need to compromise, YOU’RE the F***ING EMPLOYEE!!!!

Now here’s the BEST PART- A writer named Liz Jones, who works ¬†for ¬†The Daily Mail, writes some GREAT POINTS:

“A recent survey of employers found the reason so many jobs are given to immigrant workers is simple: BRITISH WORKERS DON’T WANT TO MAKE THE EFFORT! They think the world owes them a living, and their “rights” as an individual are all that matters. They have such ENLARGED EGOS, so much “sense of self”, that they cannot SUBJUGATE THEMSELVES to anyone else anymore. Not even the boss.”

And my FAVORITE PART:

“Why does this young woman think her desire to show us her OPEN PORES and RUDDY COMPLEXION outweighs the wishes of her employer to present a polished face to the customer?”

I couldn’t have said it better……!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MY CURRENT “IT” GIRL – Rosie Huntington-Whitely

TELL ME there’s something out there more beautiful right now….. I dare you.

I’ve known about this girl BEFORE she was “Ms. New-Transformer-Chick”, and loved her ever since I saw her walking for Victoria’s Secret. All I can say is I can’t WAIT for more…. her career is now set!!!

So, for a nice day with NO CRITICISM from me (shocker, I know), please just enjoy the following pics ūüôā

 

PERFECTION!!!!!

Kate Middleton’s COMPLETE North America LOOKS!!

The whirlwind 9 day North American tour for the newly married Royal couple is over…. from Canada to California, here are the looks Ms. Catherine chose:

CANADA

She LOVES her J Brand jeans… she wore 3 different times, and this style- 811 midrise skinny crop, which sells for $189… is already sold out in the US. THAT’S SOME POWER OF PUBLICITY FOR YOU! The navy blazer is Smyth, and EVERY woman should own something like this- it’s a lot better than a hoodie! ps: the navy is great- black is WAY TOO business-y. Shoes (in right pic) are Sebago. Not my favorite.

Collared dress by Catherine Walker. You know why this is great??? It was one of Diana’s favorite designers, and they are on their way to a tree-planting ceremony in her honor… (“awww”)

Dress by ERDEM. Kate wore this arriving to Canada. I say “good choice”! Who doesn’t love a little black lace and showing some leg? But she did it PROPERLY by wearing sleeves and a high neckline.

Stetson Hat…. I’m glad they got it out of their system in Canada.

Another ERDEM dress… She knows what fits her best! Show some leg- keeping the length “royal-appropriate”, ¬†while covering arms and chest… You can’t ALWAYS show it all off!! She has a TINY waist, and GREAT legs… not to forget AMAZING HAIR!!!!!

In JENNY PACKHAM at the Calgary Airport…. I’m all about “airport outfits”. Gone are the luxury days of travel, where you actually LOOK GREAT while traveling, opposed to wearing your sweats… (gross). ¬†Can this look GET any Better??

Arriving at ANOTHER airport in Canada, Prince Edward Island…. wearing Joseph. There are those nude shoes again by L.K. BENNETT. When you travel this much in such a small amount of time, you’ve GOT to recycle some parts of the wardrobe! (I prefer COMPLETELY different outfits, but in her case- how many cities, how many functions, in 2 countries, in 9 days??? Yeah, I’d probably recycle too…. Thankfully it’s something NOT OVERPOWERING, and blends in with the outfit, as opposed to DISTRACTING from it.)

Wearing Nautical-themed McQueen at a seaside town…. how charming. She does need to have SOME fun on this trip!

Probably my FAVORITE look of hers in CANADA…. dress is by MALENE BIRGERSH. Even though it’s so simple, the WAIST is the first thing I look at, it’s so small, and looks GREAT! Simple clean color scheme, and she looks HAPPY! (that’s the best part of the outfit- having the right attitude!)

In REISS dress for another ceremony. Wearing the Canadian colors… with a Maple Leaf in the Hat…… a little Kitsch-y, a little too theme-y, but like I said: she needs to have some fun on this trip. Can you imagine ALL the speeches, and ALL the hand-shaking and formalities?? I WOULD NEED to wear a costume too!

ISSA dress and PRADA shoes. ¬†The dress is the SAME DRESS STYLE as the NAVY BLUE she wore to the engagement announcement. (if you know what fits you…). Not my favorite- the shoes are too dark a contrast, and I don’t like her hair up!!! She has great hair, why is it up?? I know it can’t ALWAYS be down, but this is boring ūüė¶

 

NOW IT’S TIME FOR: CALIFORNIA…. IN MY CITY – L.A.!!!!!

You KNOW she’s in L.A .NOW!!!!! SLEEVELESS AND SHORT?!?!? WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD!!! Dress by Roksanda Illincic. Is it just the lavender color, or does she ALREADY look TAN??? Mystic? Bronzer? Whatever she did befor exiting that plane at LAX is WORKING!!!

THIS is a PRINCESS……. ! This is ALEXANDER MCQUEEN to the BAFTA AWARDS in Hollywood. How fun is that? An evening with fellow Brits, Celebrities, and Red Carpet? Hopefully she liked it, because I could watch her on red carpets ANY day… LOOK AT HER WAIST!!!!! ¬†Official- The best in Hollywood!

At a reception in Hancock Park,(5 min from me) at the home of British Consulate. Here they welcomed friends and guests, (including David Beckham). She is wearing a DVF dress… (Diane Von Furstenburg for all you learning). How cool- in LA for a day, and already at a Hancock Park House Party??? She’s definitely more fun in California!!!!

In JENNY PACKHAM for a Polo Tournament in Santa Barbara…. SEE! She’s letting go of the formality, and enjoying the freedom Cali brings- Sleeveless AGAIN AND ¬†showing leg! Notice the OPEN-TOED NUDE SHOES NOW????

Wearing from London highstreet shop, WHISTLES. A conservative, but young outfit for visiting inner city Skid Row children. I think it would have been wiser to wear jeans- and cover up: that place is SCARY!

 

Well, we got to see Kate in many different looks, lots of the same shoes, (and jeans) and make all women jealous of her waistline- Does this mean she’ll start a trend for diets? (One can hope….) Since she has made a frenzy over the J BRAND jeans, she sure has got the ladies taking note!

 

All in all, she has definitely catapulted herself into a style icon of today….

 

 

 

Carolyn Bourne – My UK Ambassador

I am THRILLED to announce that a woman living in England is my new representative in the UK. She’s not only ON-POINT about manners and etiquette, but she ISN’T AFRAID to SPEAK HER MIND!

Carolyn Bourne

Introducing, Carolyn Bourne… a soon to be mother-in-law who recently has been making headlines about her supposedly “vicious” emails to her future daughter-in-law, Heidi Withers (about to marry Freddie) about her LACK OF ¬†MANNERS and displays of UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR. After reading Carolyn’s email, I have NOTHING BUT APPLAUSE for her- this world is going downhill fast, and people need to wake up and show some self-pride, dignity, and morals.

Here is a photo of the young Heidi:

(WHO SITS BACKWARDS in a DIRECTOR’S CHAIR?? All I see here is “casting couch”)

So here are excepts from my new FAVORITE E-MAIL:

“It is high time someone explained to you about good manners. Yours are obvious by their absence and I feel sorry for you. ¬†Unfortunately for Freddie, he has fallen in love with you and Freddie being Freddie, I gather it is not easy to reason with him or yet encourage him to consider how he might be able to help you. It may just be possible to get through to you though. I do hope so.”

“If you want to be accepted by the wider Bourne family I suggest you take some guidance from experts with utmost haste. There are plenty of finishing schools around.¬†Please, for your own good, for Freddie’s sake and for your future involvement with the Bourne family, do something as soon as possible.”

Here are a few examples of your lack of manners:

When you are a guest in another’s house, you do not declare what you will and will not eat – unless you are positively allergic to something. You do not remark that you do not have enough food. You do not start before everyone else.

You do not take additional helpings without being invited to by your host.

When a guest in another’s house, you do not lie in bed until late morning in households that rise early – you fall in line with house norms.

You should never ever insult the family you are about to join at any time and most definitely not in public. I gather you passed this off as a joke but the reaction in the pub was one of shock, not laughter.

You should have hand-written a card to me. You have never written to thank me when you have stayed.

You regularly draw attention to yourself. Perhaps you should ask yourself why.

No one gets married in a castle unless they own it. It is brash, celebrity style behaviour.

I understand your parents are unable to contribute very much towards the cost of your wedding. (There is nothing wrong with that except that convention is such that one might presume they would have saved over the years for their daughters’ marriages.)

If this is the case, it would be most ladylike and gracious to lower your sights and have a modest wedding as befits both your incomes.

THANK YOU GOD!!!! A WOMAN AFTER MY OWN HEART!!!!!!
Even the way Carolyn WRITES is ETIQUETTE in its best! Putting Heidi in her place with TACT, yet to-the-point BLUNTNESS! Clearly, this Heidi girl needs some education in the etiquette dept.  I LOVE EVERYTHING CAROLYN HAD TO SAY!!!! 
The fact that Heidi SENT OUT the email and made it PUBLIC is BAD FORM... this email was intended for Heidi as a WAKE UP CALL for her to BECOME A WOMAN, not remain an IMMATURE GIRL... who would want a person with NO CLASS added to their family? Clearly Heidi's father is one of those people: he responded with, "Carolyn's head is so far up her own ass she doesn't know whether to speak or fart".... WOW... WHAT AN EXAMPLE OF CLASS. WHAT A FAMILY TO MARRY IN-TO. 
And for EVERYONE who thinks Carolyn is "the evil stepmom"?? YOU must be A REAL EMBARRASSMENT YOURSELF! 
If you are "offended" by Carolyn's email, then you are GUILTY of being CRASS, OBNOXIOUS, and basically.... well, someone not to be associated with!

VICTORIA BECKHAM VS. Cara Delevigne…. (WHO????)

CARA DELEVIGNE

VICTORIA BECKHAM

Below is the article from Huffington Post with DUMB model CARA DELEVIGNE…. exactly: WHO??? I want you to all read it, and see my comments below.

 

“We’d like to introduce you to the candid and quirky Cara Delevingne: socialite, model, beat boxer extraordinaire and would-be Posh Spice. The 18-year-old has inched her way onto the fashion scene as of late, most notably posing for this year’s Burberry ad campaigns.

But the¬†Telegraph¬†reports¬†that the blonde Brit has also been sought out to act — in an upcoming Spice Girls musical.

Funnier than the notion of a Spice Girls musical (which will be performed on London’s West End and produced by Mamma Mia! producer Judy Craymer, apparently) is Delevingne’s response to the offer to play Victoria Beckham in the production:

The Burberry model tells Mandrake: “My agent said, ‘No, you can’t, it will be a career killer.’ Of course, I loved the Spice Girls. I loved Geri and Baby, but who liked Posh Spice? They said I looked like her and I said, ‘That’s not cool, that’s really mean.’‚ÄČ”

It’s a shame, too, because Delevingne is quite entertaining.¬†In another interview with¬†The Telegraph,the model revealed another talent she could bring to the stage:

I’m a world class Beat Boxer, you should hear the noises I can make with my mouth… I’m also obsessed with drumming and have a massive electric drum kit in my bedroom, I’m drum mad.”

 

This 18 YEAR OLD has recently appeared in Burburrys ad campaign. Woopee. She was offered to play Posh Spice in an upcoming stage musical of the Spice Girls. She said no, because her agent told her it was “career suicide”. Hmm…. ¬†Spice Girls were one of the BIGGEST acts of the 90’s. Their recent “reunion” tour was SOLD OUT EVERYWHERE. And I have NO CLUE who YOU ARE!!!

She then goes on to INSULT Victoria, by saying that when being compared to her (looks), that it was “not cool, mean”… and that she likes Baby Spice and Ginger Spice. Everyone can have favorites, but ask yourself: Where are those two? Where are their careers? NOWHERE!!!!

How DARE you INSULT an ICON in the very industry you’re starting in?!?!?! Victoria is the MOST SUCCESSFUL of the Spice Girls, The MOST ELEGANT, and MOST RESPECTED in the Fashion World!!!!! SHE COULD KILL YOUR CAREER IN A SECOND!!!

I hope Victoria reads that article, (or this one), makes ONE phone call, and that girl’s “career” would be over…. just a thought.

 

This Cara creature would rather not “act” on stage, in a role YOU KNOW will get publicity (and regardless of the outcome, we all know the saying- “there’s no such thing as bad press”). But she likes to “beat-box”…… (?!)

Siiiiiiiiiiiggghhhhhhh……….. because that’s such a better career choice.

Cara: Fire your agent, hire a publicist (to control your stupid mouth), and go join the kids on street corners ¬†beat-boxing…. let’s see where your career goes.

Then Victoria can laugh from her multi-million dollar fashion empire.
