Fascinate me Sugar!

There was 'The Fascinators' DooWop-ing into our 50s diner hearts (i'll have some fries with that).  There was Fascinators, pretty ones, dramatic ones like a funeral, all black with cascading tulle (oh, the sheer drama of death!)  And now there are these purty ones, making a come back just like burlesque (not talking about Cher and Christina, though the rendition of Mae West's song 'A Guy What Takes His Time' was acceptable, Mae would have approved...I think.  Oh you sooooo knew the Mae West comments would be coming).

Colour explosion!

To be sung - It's spring time, for... Hitler.  No, It's springtime for war...colour bombs that is!  Fashion is a little fun especially when one splashes out in bolds and beautifuls.  Thankyou gay fashion god!  The sea of black and browns and that awful burgandy was starting to bum me out.  All those autumn/winter colours get really blerk after a while, just like a heavy night of booze hounding! Yuk!  (When did I last eat peas?).

Woolley Mammoths!

Addressing my Southern Hemisphere friends who have yet to dive into that, winter delight.

This winter don't turn into a frozen carcass (Walt Disney) wear fabulous fur instead!  Real, if you can afford it, faux if you have a heart (I love you Cruella Devil, a true style icon) and vintage if you can find one that doesn't stink like moth balls.  Go for colour, go for length, go for warmth stupid!

Hello Mammoth beast lady, you look great!

Silvio Betterelli

(To be read in New Jersey Jew voice) - What? They didn't get enough time to finish the garments?

Except for this one! This outfit is lovely!

Julia Sarr-Jamois...The girl who runs away

Julia Sarr-Jamois ex model and now the editor of Wonderland magazine never blooming stops for a picture.  It's like hunting down a rabbit...I like her hair though and that bag!  I want it!

There is nothing I can get from Afro Sheen...Cool man!

Crucify Your Fashion.

I do rather like a good ye olde mockery bashing especially that of religious capers.  For those who take offense to the world in general, close your eyes as you scroll down the page for ye shall see the crucifix endowed by fashion lovers.  First, watch the snippet from Fellini's 'Roma'.  Catholicism to it's 'humble pie' self (I cough cold heartedly).   Then take a peak at those cheeky young ones, punking themselves up in accessories just like a devoured pope.

The hat - a cross between a flat Fez and a large Kippah.  Now i'm confused.

Incase you are attacked by Dracula or those Twilight kids.  The question is though, where did you put the garlic?

Shoes with height makes you closer to God (and so does big hair!).

Milano, cesspool of conservatism?

Oh Milano, you at times are a cesspool of conservatism, then for about 2-3 weeks within the year you release the fashion beasts into this wild concrete jungle.  I like it when you do that!  Here are some nice kids, doing their fashion thang.

This dude was very sweet, I liked him coz we were wearing the same shoes.

Ermanno Scervino....Purrrrrr!

The Ermanno Scervino show during Milano Fashion Week was all about the Purrrrr factor.  It reminded me of Italy in it's heyday.  Elegant, luxurious, warm, it was screaming 60s hair just like a Silvana Mangano film.     Check out the clip from the film 'The Witches'/'Le Streghe' (A film of shorts...Very entertaining).  To be honest I've never seen this film in english......Watching Clint Eastwood speak in Italian is funnier!

Carla Fracci....hanging in there.

Carla Fracci the 1st ballerina of La Scala.  She's hanging onto that position for dear life, like a 'Cat On A Tin Roof' except without Paul Newman and all that 'southern bellness'.  C'mon toots!  Let the younger ones have a crack.  Hats off though for a lady of particular age, she is doing very well for herself, clutching at the position, holding onto it like a baby holds it's dummy or more nearer to her age like a grandmother sucking in her own teeth.  Perhaps Guinness book of world records needs to be notified?

Drag Glam!

There are a few Drag Queens that are number one in my sparkle book.  

The first goes to the queen of trailer tah-rash the American DIVINE, with her eager to do anything, a real trooper (watch 'that' scene from Pink Flamingos directed by John Waters) attitude.   

 Yes, you are Divine, so beautiful!

The next, the highly intelligent and humorous Italian drag queen Platinette.  Who's hair seems to be taking on a Sylvia Fine look these days (which makes me love her even more).  I look forward to learning more about her in the future.

And of course, the biggest Australian export since Fosters beer...Dame Edna Everage who's wit and talent are boundless and bountiful, who's deliberate satire has me rolling on the floor in laughter.  Dame Edna, Australians  should name the country after you!

Frankie Morello...I got distracted!

Frankie Morello a style and look I dig...just like butter!  But the well-chiseled male dancer happened to get my attention...just for a moment or maybe two?  Supermodel and Italian actress Bianca Balti was a perfect muse, concentrated like Cottee's Cordial and nicely squared like a fresh Lamington.

Supermodel Bianca Balti
She got distracted too! Look Ma, no shoes!
No comment.

Giovanna...The 'IT' Girl!

Stylishly dressed, editor of Vogue Uomo Italy, Giovanna Battaglia has been crowned the 'IT' girl by many of her devoted followers.  Personally I just want to feed her.  You too skinny, you need to eat big bowl of pasta, make you strong.  I break you like stick! EAT EAT!
