Kim Kardashian for Vogue Brazil Daily #VogueBrazil #KimKardashian #BlondAmbition

I am tired of a world where we are forcibly immersed in the world of the Kardashians. It’s boring and plastic and full of shameless selfies, and photo-shopped body parts. However every once in a while a photographer actually comes along and makes Kim look beautiful. Classic even. Which is what Vogue Brazil and Ellen Von Unwerth did in these shots of her.

Kim’s cover for Vogue Brazil shot by the tremendously talented Ellen Von Unwerth, speaks to me in classic volumes of simple beauty.

Reminiscent of the 70s, these photos are shot in more natural light then studio HMI’s (both were necessary), in such a way that Kim looks almost passable as a model, and less like a plasticine princess. Ellen cast her in a light that creates her looking like a late Monroe and 70’s pin-up porn girl. Simple elegance mixed with a dash of homegrown smut.

Congratulations Ellen von Unwerth. Your talent shined in this editorial.

Oh and Kim looks nice too.

Joan Rivers Leaves Us Laughing at 81 #NotSoQueenofMean #RIP #SoSad

Growing up Joan Rivers was always there. On TV as a comedienne, on The Muppets with Miss Piggy and fighting the good fight with the Fashion Police. Never once did she not appreciate the funny things and people in life. Always stellar, a star and an inspiration Joan Rivers is indeed, the definition of Comedy itself.

Sadly today we lost Joan Rivers at 81. Surrounded by friends and family she left us. Melissa Rivers her daughter released this statement;

“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17pm surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother.

Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated.

My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.” –Melissa Rivers

We will truly miss you Joan. You were, and always will be an inspiration.

Orange is the New Black is #NOTCANCELLED #OITNB #InternetRumors

OitNBnotcancelled

Well, it’s been a week or internet snafu’s and idiocy. First Stephen Spielberg killed a Dinosaur and now ‘Orange is the New Black’ is cancelled. The first may be true (we just don’t know. Actually we do.), but Orange is the New Black getting cancelled?

NOT HAPPENING.

Of course, there are great sites you can go to if you need to debunk a myth or, in this case, a HORRIBLE, HORRIFYING Internet rumor, I recommend SNOPES.COM.

No that we have debunked that hot mess, you may carry on with your Netflix-ing.

Happy Sunday!

Things to do besides your taxes, May 1st Whisky GoGo @LanceHerbstrong FREE SHOW #Mayday #Free #Music #LA

And you thought braving Coachella was bad.

Today in the US, Millions of Americans will hoof it to the lovely post office and stand in the worst line ever to file their taxes. Or an extension. Or realize they didn’t make enough and are too broke this year to file. Ah, the 21st century blues.

Even though we love being responsible *cough* we love things that are FREE and irresponsible better. I bring you good news and tidings from the awesomeness that is FREE shows.

10157221_10203655604613783_5282917024295906978_n

Lance Herbstrong is putting on a free show at the Whisky go-go Hollywood! Yes, FREE. I love that word because living in Los Angeles is NOT cheap. Plus it makes for a fun show with a great vibe full of fun people.

Added incentive is the uber cool BREALTV is helping host it. BREALTV is like the High Times of television. Oh and the special guests? Well, past friends of Lance Herbstrong include Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers who gave Lance a shout out onstage and George Clinton of Parliament and Atomic Dog. Last but not least, If you haven’t heard or been to the Whisky GoGo, it’s the famed venue where the Doors got their start and became a mega band. Also mega players breeze through for ‘special’ events like this one. It’s historically and musically awesome.

What’s the catch? You have to RSVP ASAP!!

2014 Golden Globes Nominations and Red Carpet Live Stream #RedCarpet #Fabulous

It’s my favorite time of year. Award Season in LA. That means the roads get shut down, people buy ridiculously extravagant things, everyone is primping and preening, and all the fabulous actors come out of their nicely nestled homes. It also means awards.

So About That Corset on Ariana Grande at the #VMAS It’s by @BizzyBHollywood #LosAngeles #Fashion #Couture

I love a success story don’t you?

gossipcenterpreshow082513- sppreshow082513- (1)

Last night at the VMA Pre-Performance young gorgeous and 20 something Ariana Grande killed it with a beautiful performance. Despite her being a self-described ‘ball of nerves’ her performance hit the red carpet and voice was beautiful.

And so was her clothing.

You might remember, if you actually read this blog, a piece I did on the store ‘Bizzy B of Hollywood’ where they shot Magic Mike and have lingerie, costumes, menswear, fetish wear and then some. The owner has Beatrice Prochazka has been making Hollywood prettier for 12 years and continues to do so, by making custom Swarovski wear for celebrities all over the world.

One of them being Ariana Grande! That’s right. That gorgeous custom Swarovski corset was an original piece by the lovely BeatricePro/BizzyB of Hollywood herself. Every darn crystal. Beatrice also works with stars like;

Nicki Minaj, Paris Hilton, Bad Girls Club, Traci Bingham, Corey Feldman, The Girls Next Door, Cee-Lo, Ginuwine and Tank as well as creating custom pieces for performance and for the ladies, the boudoir.

Model Battles: Naomi (Thankyouverymuch) Campbell vs. Zi Lin (wannabe) #ModelWars

naomizilindestroyher

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Life used to be so simple when we are all young, frivolous model’s. Editorial shoots, big money & sleeping with everyone. And so was the life of Naomi Campbell.

Then came Noami Campbell hitting 40-something. Although she is no longer a dainty, bitchy, flower, she is now a bitchy and violent,’seasoned professional’. Assaulting front desk people with phone’s, throwing Blackberry’s & keeping blood diamond’s, is just skimming the surface for this supermodel.

Enter Naomi’s new show ‘The Face’, and Luo Zilin from 1st (and hopefully last) season. A leggy pageant girl who won Miss Universe China, a la new model, signed to MIX Management. Zi Lin is now banging Naomi’s ex, Vladimir Doronin.

Let the game’s begin.

First, Naomi put a big cap on Zi Lin’s contract with Zi Lin’s money by killing her contract with MIX Management. They state she was let go due to ‘unprofessional’ behavior. We think they a little birdie (named Ms.’Thankyouverymuch’) might have had said something to make them can it. Something like, “That low-class, model, hooker is effing my ex and I will beat you in a back alley if you don’t let her go.”

NOW Naomi is brings the hate in round two. Naomi being more powerful than OZ, called up a few connection’s in China. Not only is she trying to get little Luo blacklisted worldwide, but she is asking her Chinese representation to show her the door.

Vlad and Luo are bummed and according to Dlisted (read more here) and the Daily Mail;

“It’s really sad that Naomi can’t leave Vlad alone since he just wants to get on with his life with Luo in peace. She’s had a very successful career so far and deserves better than being bullied by Naomi. At this point, what he cares about is protecting Luo and helping to undo the damage Naomi has cruelly tried to inflict on her.”

Someone need’s to get a hobby, and their name rhymes with ‘pain in the ass’. Take up knitting, do Yoga, drink wine to relax like all us fashion people, but STOP with the H-A-T-E. There’s no cosmetic surgery to fix ugly behavior Miss Super C.

If it help’s poor Luo and Vlad, I’ll lend Naomi my phone to throw at framed photo of the pair. Forget the wine, girlfriend need’s Xanax and a nap.

Muppets to be Exhibited at NY’s ‘Museum of Moving Image’ #cool #Muppets #NewYork

Piggy

Oh Piggy how I wanted to be you!

Great news for Muppet’s fan’s worldwide, the Muppets are finding a permanent home in New York City. New York’s Museum of Moving Image, is getting a fat donation.
By fat I mean Piggy, Kermit, some of Sesame street and some very happy little Fraggles, who no longer need to worry about their home.

According to the lovely people at AP/Yahoo;

Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Bert and Ernie of “Sesame Street” fame, the stars of “Fraggle Rock” and other puppets, costumes and items from throughout Muppet’s creator Jim Henson’s career have been donated

What is even cooler is over 400 items and 25 years worth of Muppet’s are being handed over to the museum. How epic is that?!

Unfortunately the sad part? We have to wait a year.

The exhibit is to open next year at the museum in the Long Island City neighborhood, across the East River from midtown Manhattan. The city is chipping in $2.75 million toward the $5 million cost for a project it sees as furthering its goal of persuading more tourists to venture beyond Manhattan.

I guess I know when to schedule my visit to the East Coast. See you there.

True Blood Season 6 Trailer. Made for #FangBangers #NSFW #Hot

True-Blood-Season-6

Let’s face it. Season 5 was a total bust. I am a long time fan of True Blood but they totally failed me in Season 5. There was not enough sex, there was not enough blood and the plot was so thin, a 1-year-old with a butter knife could have cut through it.

I guess there were a few highlights. All involving Eric half nekkid. Other than that, we learned fairies are lame, like sex and all vampires are narcissists. This could be season 2.

And then there was the Season 6 trailer…..and it made me say….

Sweet Jesus.

With a limited run of only a few episodes we have everyone naked, more blood than a 80s gore movie, tons of battling, shoot ’em up, blood lust AND…..lots of Eric’s awesome chest. Way to go Mr. Skarsgard, you’ve been hitting the gym. (Team Sweden FTW!!)

Words cannot explain the joy I got (especially below the waist) when watching this. Sex, Blood and gospel music. It’s a WIN!

(Trailer is kind of NSFW/PG-13)

True Blood Season 6 Promo Video Looks Wicked Good for True Blood #Billith #TheEnd #Showdown

True-Blood-Season-6Since I am a firm believer in NOT celebrating April Fool’s Day I thought it only fitting I give you something that is true.

True Blood that is.

Yes, True Blood Season 6 promo trailer has been released, and it looks like the writer’s went back to their roots. No sparkling, lot’s of blood, sex and lots of weird. Vampires, fairies and brujas oh my!. Add a few burning buildings and a really pissed off Billith, it seems we are back in business.
But wait. No we aren’t. Here’s the kicker. Season 6 of True Blood doesn’t start until frigging June 13th. And the season will be extra short with a rumored 10 episodes. WTH?
Until then will be forced to watch network TV (except Game of Thrones).

Billith

No Billith for you.

Waiting is half the fun tho right? No it isn’t. While you are sitting suffering my dear fangbangers, here’s a promo for you. Enjoy it, because until June we are fangtastically….screwed.

Kelly Osbourne has Seizure on Set, Hospitalized! #No #LameSauce #WellWishes

E! Brand Shoot - Season 2012

I love Kelly Osbourne. She reminds me of her spitfire mom and has overcome so damn much. With her job on E! Fashion police as a fashion guru du jour I am sad to say Kelly had a seizure on set.

According to the presses (or the sad rag known as TMZ), Kelly told Melissa Rivers (who was filling for Giuliana Rancic) she wasn’t feeling well earlier on set. During taping Kelly’s health got the better of her when she fell off her chair and started having a seizure. Thankfully Melissa stepped in and a member of the audience, who was a medical professional stepped in to help her.

Glad to see people still know how to help each other in an emergency. My faith in humanity is (partially) restored.

Kelly is currently in the hospital having tests run. We hope for the best and that she bounces back healthy from this incident.

Go Kelly, we know you will rock it and come out fashionable!!!

Things to Watch: L.A. Frock Stars on The Smithsonian Channel #Brash #Sass #Fashion #Celebs

I admit that most vices in life I have given up. However there are two things I will never let go of. Chocolate and television. And wine. And….oh blast let’s get back to television.

If you are like me you are addicted to every fashionably interesting show out there. I am still fuming there isn’t more ‘It’s a Brad, Brad, Brad World’ and am addicted to the new show The Face. I’m rooting for Coco seeing as she is sassy and quirky. Well Gods be praised a new show has popped up and it looks fabulous. And it’s set in L.A. which makes me an even bigger fan.

Enter Frock Stars L.A. with the ever wicked and cool owner Doris Raymond, owner of The Way We Wore. One of the hottest vintage shops in L.A. County which dresses some of the hottest celebrities (Adele, Dita Von Tease).

the-way-we-wore-1

How can I describe the owner? She’s fashionable, savvy and a vintage GODDESS. She knows whats up and down and she should be interesting to watch.

FrockStars

Add a fab staff of vintage divas in the know. Styles and designers they carry and hope to find range from the 1920’s to the 1980’s. And with a constant search for ‘the holy grail’ of vintage, it’s a super win.

Check out the teaser for the show here.

L.A. Frock Stars: Sneak Peek

Premieres  March 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Are you watching? I will be.

In Case You Missed It, Calvin Klein Superbowl Ad – Concept by Calvin Klein

I swear this had was the most hilarious Superbowl I have watched in recent years. Despite Samsung’s desperate attempt to annoy us to all hell with their ad for the NEW SAMSUNG NOTE II (yeah, we got it, screw you guys), the Superbowl, the Super Beyonce blackout and almost win for the 49ers were awesome. Of course all my chili cheese dogs, queso dip topped with beer were stopped in their tracks and became guilt because of one little advertisement.

a_3x-horizontal

The Calvin Klein Concept advertisement with Matthew Terry. Muscles, Abs…..more abs and underwear I wanted to remove. I wanted to hit the gym, drop my Corona, and do my TV screen. Really a damn shame they only ran this once. But that is why I am here to show you the goods.

Good job to the Sales/Marketing department on this one. You guys UBER win. Oh and so does Matt Terry for showing us how it’s done. Watch Below;
