What’s black, white, and red all over? The Alice + Olivia Fall 2012 collection that is! The stunning collection of bold prints on a base of neutrals, with splashes of kool-aid red, and punchy florals was a perfect match against the zebra hide rug. The presentation was all about statement pieces, the color-blocked dress and the wide leg printed pants were some of the more wearable statement pieces from the collection. This was another one of my favorite shows from this past week, what do you think of Alice + Olivia?

I’m gonna say it:  Hot. Mess.

Keywords: sinead oconnor, wedding, hot mess, barry herridge

Sinead O’Connor got married for the fourth time last week, I didn’t even know she got married 3 other times to be honest- Up until I read the article I thought she was a Lesbian, right?  Like that’s the last thing I heard,  Sinead O’Connor, lesbian, unmarried.   Then over the weekend I’m on my phone surfing the information super highway and I find out Sinead has been married 3 times previously, she’s not a lesbian, she just turned 45,  and she looks like an absolute train wreck!  They got married late last week at the Little White WeddingChapel in Las Vegas-  yuuuuup, same place Britney(who just turned 30) got hitched for her short-lived wedding a few years back.

I’m not being mean here people, I’m just calling it like it is. What the heck happened to her?   I remember her years back with the shaved head, and I actually thought she pulled it off great.  Now she just looks beat up. I respect tattoos,  but sheesh, when did “tattoo giant pirate hat across my chest” sound like a good idea?

 

Her Husband looks like he just rolled out of bed.   Come on dude,  how bout a little starch in the collar?  A little gel in the hair? A little tailoring on that suit?  anything? This is your wedding man! Clean up for the show!   throw a little iron into that thing or something!  rub some viagra on it,  do what you gotta do but when you have a beautiful bride like Sinead O’Connor on your arm…

OOOOOOHHHHHHHH!  I GET IT!  You’re marrying Sinead O’Connor and you don’t NEED to clean up for anything.  It all makes sense now. Sag on Barry, Pirate hat it up Sinead, the Drive-Thru-Wedding ceremony is your stage!



Hey Kimye – fashion week does NOT revolve around you!!!

Keywords: kim kardashian, kanye west, paris fashion week

On Tuesday, the fame whore couple  Kim Kardashian and Kanye West showed up to the Stephane Rolland Couture show in Paris, almost an hour late! The show waited a while for them before it began, and then finally, someone with a brain decided that the show must go on. The duo showed up just before the finally, setting the Twittersphere into a frenzy.

 

I know that these two are big spenders, and that Kanye thinks he’s the next Gaultier, but seriously, no one cares about these two that much, especially in the world of fashion!
