Gumball 3000 finale, Gumming Up Traffic.

As I took my walk west down Hollywood blvd chatting on my phone I noticed, traffic was crap as usual. Seem’s they had closed Hollywood blvd (again), for an event as a local, I don’t care about (again).

I saw a few banners advertising the ‘Gumball 3000’ auto show and yawned for dramatic effect.

It wasn’t until my daily walk that I noticed THIS insanity.

That was Franklin ave. by Runyon. As I descended to Hollywood blvd on my home stretch it got worse.

As I walked up Hollywood blvd. from Fresh n’ Easy it was gridlocked at La Brea and as far west as Camino Palermo give or take a few blocks.

Yes even the LAPD could not get out of their car to beat me up for taking a picture of them. Traffic was THAT bad.

Why would an auto show/car rally much up traffic and Hollywood Blvd.? This is no big movie premiere.

The reason why? This guy got bored. (frigging Millionaires).

Justin Timberlake is Marrying Jessica Biel, yeah whatever.

Well, I have heard it through the Huffington Post so it must be real.

Mind you this is the guy who fake doinked (or did he?) Mila Kunis and dated in no particular order; Fergie, Britney Spears, Jenna Dewan, Alyssa Milano, and Cameron Diaz, when they were all hot and not tragic and looked like this.

Justin Timberlake is trading that…and this.

For this.

Marriage to Jessica Biehl who he proposed to in January 2012.

Doesn’t he look psychotically happy kittens? Seeing as he’s cheated on her 3-4 times I am sure this will go well.  Don’t you think so? I can’t wait for the media circus that will be their wedding.

Seriously I do wish them the best and good luck too.

Chances are, they may need it.

Getting Your Platform On – Brian Atwood shoes

I love a platform shoe as much as I love my own mother. Seeing as I adore my mother, this is a testament to my adoration of anything that makes me ‘taller’ and elongates my sexy dancers legs. I am also hideously deformed in the fashion world at 5’2 and am seriously considering plastic surgery for my ‘shortness’.

Or the next best thing. The Brian Atwood platform shoe.

The too gorgeous in nude, ‘Alesha’ platform heel

I found his collection quite by accident on the ever lovely http://www.net-a-porter.com and am happy to say that not only am I a convert, but have been saved from the AWFUL knee extension plastic surgery I have been contemplating (seriously, ow).

Brian Atwood has brought the platform back and re-sculpted it so it’s not ankle breaking and wearable. If the ‘basic’ shoe is not your bag, his shoes transcend the norm and come in color.

And an open toe block heel, because walking around any city become unstable and it’s easier to ride the train in these.

Brian Atwood also has a flair for the dramatic in his shoes, and although it is a smaller platform I would buy it anyway. The almost art nouveau look just makes it worth it.

Yes, please!!

So sexy. Overall I am hooked like the shoe whore I am and have officially labeled his collection #shoeporn.

Next in my collection for red carpet fun…his platform noir artistique, the ‘Monster’ shoe! This was made for me.

Who wants some?

Brian Atwood shoe’s are available at Saks and of course Bergdorf’s. Happy platform hunting darlings. Let’s make it count!

Electric Blue Nail French Fab, With a Little Help From Orly

I have recently gone from Sephora freak to Ulta convert. Partially because you don’t have an overly done make up queen asking you if you need help every five seconds.  I appreciate Sephora, and it is my first love, but I recently saw Ulta toting my new summer nail crush.

Orly French FX Kit

 

Every girl knows getting a french Mani is best done by the awesome Korean ladies down the street. Without them most of us girls would be wandering the streets and clubs picking bad nail polish off and flicking the chips in our drinks and at strangers. It’s ugly, but true.

Now they have everything packaged and ready to go for ladies who want it all and don’t want blah nude nails. In electric silver and blue. Boring nails be damned I am straight up going out and buying this. All the little overdone girls from WeHo will quiver at the mightiness of my French mani. And it will be blue…er, and silver!

What’s inside?

 Each kit includes two nail lacquers, plus Top 2 Bottom Basecoat & Topcoat All In One and complete manicure instructions.

I’m a girl about town and a mover and shaker so I will try anything once. Plus it’s for the good of women kind. At $15 the price is right.

And if it even comes out looking like this…

I’ve conquered normality and brought a little extra freaky into the Fashion scene. Off to Ulta to give my new obsession a try!

Happy shopping my blue babies.

True Blood Will Proceed to Consume You In 3…2…1…

(Happily stolen from the genius known as George Takei)

Oh yes. Our favorite ign’nint, blond, fairy (WTF?!) southern waitress and crew are about to come back into our lives. Sookie will continue to be ‘Fuckin’ Sookeh’, Bill will be moody and lie, Eric will look sexy while he cheats the vampire community and ‘loves’ Sookeh and Lafayette will turn into a possessed demon, bitch medium, shaman….well bitch.

Not to mention some surprises the writers have like Russell Edginton, who is by far my favorite antagonist. Also he was REALLY messed up in ‘American Horror Story’.

Tune in on your flatscreen for the mayhem on JUNE, 10th for fangbangin’ fuckery!

I’ll be streaming this and screaming at my TV like the rest of you.

Memorial Day, Honor Our Fallen Who Fought for YOUR Freedom – President Obama Commemorates Memorial Day at Arlington

I may be a PT bitch, but I am not heartless.

I want to take a moment today to honor our fallen, our troops and our veterans. I lived with a veteran, lost friends to this war and known people who have gone to fight in this madness.

As you stuff your face, drink beer and party in this lovely summer sun remember there are those who don’t. Take 10 minutes to watch this, and remember as they say in ‘Team America’, freedom isn’t free.

A moment of silence for those we lost.

President Obama Commemorates Memorial Day

Madonna and Jean Paul Gaultier are Creating New Chaos Du Jour

Oh, I can hear all the gays in West Hollywood screaming with joy as I write this. Madonna, our diva, yoga queen, gay icon and on her off days, goddess, is deep in rehearsals for her new world tour.

Now this is enough to make everyone scream with terror and delight but the real news is the costumes, once again will be created by his holiness, Jean Paul Gaultier. Who, well, J’adore more than Dior.

Not only is he a design master but at her past concerts he brought this iconic outfit.

And more recently this hotness

Yes, this should make for a way hotter concert because JPG and Madonna work together in a perfect symbiosis.

I know I am not the first fashion/event blogger writing this, but I do have an edge. I just caught this tweet from @JPGaultier yesterday:

Yes! Jean Paul Gaultier posted the first exclusive pictures of Madonna’s fabulous, dragtastic crew doing rehearsals in the new costumes. And this diva bitch showed up.
Frankly I would pay to see this fan master whoop it up, but Madonna is a nice bonus. Note also the use of JPGaultier’s traditional Breton stripes on boobs up front. This look’s too good.
So I leave you fashionisto/a’s with this bit of Lady M and her new music. Are you going for the costumes or music? Oh, who cares.
Enjoy your ‘Girl Gone Wild’.

Obama Bill: Newport Beach Charges President $35,000 For Added Security Presence (VIDEO)

Well, well, look’s like no matter how big a star you are in our lovely Los Angeles County you still have to pay up.

President Obama recently breezed through lovely Newport Beach but asked for extra men in black. I’m sure the Obama administration thought being big shots in politics they would wander through as the 1%, gratis. The 99% are getting wise though and charged Obama $35,000 for his extra ‘protection’.

And I thought he could hold his own.

Ass, cash or grass, nobody rides for free. Even the head of the country.

Happy Birthday to Me and Birthday Bash Details

Today is my birthday loves and this little redhead is taking a day off. Today I will be taking it easy, loving myself (no, not that way) and doing what ever I can dream up on a ridiculous budget.

Tonight however I will be rocking out with my lady bits and of course friends, family, and fans. Here are the details:

Heathyr’s Birthday at  Bar Marmont, 8171 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90046

Starts at approx. 10:30pm

It’s my birthday on May 24th because….well we all have one. Dress code is nice, casual and not better than me. Everyone’s invited, I am making this a secret VIP freaks and geeks nite at Bar Marmont. I want the fashionistas/os, the pretty people, the weirdos, the stompy stomps, the artist noirs, models and porn stars to come out. I don’t care what you are, just come get me drunk and act fabulous.
Now you have details, time place and yes it’s 21+. Come as you are or come naked (they probably won’t let you in if you do). Hell, come buy me a drink!
I’m off to make things happen. Back tomorrow, internet willing.

Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. Where’s the ears?

The line up for Batman 3 looks pretty good. Most of the cast I can say, as a nerd girl I am happy with. Christian Bale is always easy on the eyes and brings the hottie swoon factor as both Bruce Wayne and Batman.

My beef here is not with Christopher Nolan. Not this movie. My problem is with one actress/character in question and her little not so shiny suit.

Anne Hathaway as: Catwoman.

And that outfit…oh hell no.

A little background is necessary here. Anne Hathaway did some cute Disney stuff and played the airy, absent-minded white queen in ‘Alice in Wonderland’ a la Tim Burton quite well. I enjoyed the ‘The Princess Diaries’ and ‘Ella Enchanted’, as cute and fun and SUPER Disney movies. Seeing her in other roles where she keeps playing herself (Devil Wears Prada, Bride Wars, Get Smart, Love and Other Drugs) has given me the general feeling that this is the complete depth of her as an actress and she really is just that….deep. With a cast of actors suck as Michael Caine, Christian Bale, and Tom Hardy as Bane she is out of her league.

My last bitch is a fashion thing. What the what is she wearing? Where is Selena Kyle’s mentally messed up sexuality that exudes through her catsuit? This suit is not only unflattering. It is most definitely not sexual. It is reminiscent of a wetsuit for pro-divers and stiff looking. There is no cat-like anything to this outfit, and somebody please tell me where her goddamn ears are?

Sorry Batman 3 but I deem this costume and character a fail. I’ll still spend $14 bucks on the movie. But if you here someone cursing every time Anne comes on-screen in her wetsuit, that’s me. Please don’t throw anything. You know you hate it too.

Birthday Bitch….thankyouverymuch

Well it seem’s I have to share my birthday week with the one bitch who brings ‘psycho sexy’ to the Gemini name. Yes, it’s Naomi Campbell’s birthday today.

At the age of 42 Naomi has earned entitlement and an amazing reputation. She has shot with some of the top photographers in the world such as Testino, Peter Lindbergh, Herb Ritts and Bruce Weber. She has walked the runway for  Gianni VersaceAzzedine Alaïa, and Isaac Mizrahi. She was on the cover of British Elle at just 16 years old.

Naomi has also earned the nicknames like ‘psycho’ and ‘that bitch’ by accosting an assistant with her phone, temporarily blinded her maid, hit a driver, a paparazzi’s camera and a front desk clerk with the hotel’s phone.

(shot by Testino, Naomi wearing Versace Atelier)

After countless bitch fits, magazine covers, violent outbursts, couture outfits, runway shows, videos and a very solid ‘thankyouverymuch’ when asked about a nasty little blood diamond she possesses, Naomi Campbell is a diva extraordinaire, who we love to hate and wish we were.

Happy birthday to my favorite diva bitch who has rocked the runway’s since 1986. We love you! Psycho sexy indeed.

New This Wedding Season “Bridal Uggs”

It hurt’s me to type this, but it is true as verified by the Huffington Post, there are 100% authentic…Bridal Uggs.

Now I have always been on the fence as far as Uggs are concerned. I see they have a place in casual, laundry day, late night supermarket run and OMG it’s actually cold wear in CA. Although I refuse to own a pair, they are not Crocs and therefore, tolerable.

Bridal Uggs, though? Welllllll…….take a look at the official collection.

Complete with pretty white flowers to let you know they are ‘BRIDAL’ and not to be worn as a normal Ugg these babies include a lovely slipper Ugg, a shiny opalescent sequined Ugg and my favorite.

A Swarovski crystal Ugg that screams ‘I have too much money and no class’.

I suppose bridal parties like this made it inevitable.

So carry on Uggs. Destroy all that is sacred and turn yourself into Crocs. I hope the designers put an end to this and make this 2012 Bridal Collection ‘Limited Edition’.

This certainly tested my gag reflex writing this blog. Here’s hoping Ugg stop’s before it’s too late.

The World is ‘Metropolis’ Obsessed

Finding new blogs I feel ‘worthy’ of posting on here is difficult. I prefer quality, couture, art and the truly beautiful oddities in life. This is becoming much easier as I find that art nouveau is making a resurgence.

As I browsed the never-ending internet I found a few images from Interview Magazine that are  a must share worth.The underlying theme in these bring forth and reflect images from the 1920’s cult classic ‘Metroplolis’.

For those without the background knowledge, ‘Metropolis’ was a unique and amazing film that brought both art nouveau and the artistic Bauhaus art of the time together with, well robots and the concept of a Utopian society riddled with secret robots. This later inspired movies such as ‘Blade Runner’, ‘The City of Lost Children’ and every A.I movie…EVER.

More importantly it has shaped fashion and created an obsession with neck plates, chokers and breast plates as seen in this amazing set of photos by Mert &Marcus.

Amazing, indeed, but the following set brought sultry, sex and the ultimate fantasy to the human eye for me.

 This last photo especially as the model is decked head to toe in lace mask and bodysuit by the demigod designer known as Alexander McQueen.

This is the kind of inspirational clothing I need in my wardrobe. The complexity of design mixed with pure eroticism.

Zuckerberg Got Hitched, Not in a Hoodie

Mark Zuckerberg married 27year old Priscilla Chan Saturday. Although many internet jokes will surround this wedding, Zuckerberg opted for a traditional dress as did his new wife.

According to the lovely Esther Goldberg at EstherGoldberg.com:

Chan graduated from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, on Monday, the same day Zuckerberg turned 28.

The couple met at Harvard and have been together for more than nine years.

A source authorized by the couple to speak said Zuckerberg designed the ring featuring “a very simple ruby.

At 28 Zuckerberg owns one of the most successful companies and is watching his finances soar since he went public. Perfect date, timing and dress.

Happy Trails and good luck to the happy couple!
