Hoff takes his daughter to the sex shop

Fresh from his Vodka-infused bender that landed him in the hospital for alcohol poisoning, David Hasselhoff decided to bounce back and take his seventeen-year-old daughter–who called 911 when her dad got too drunk during said drinking incident–to a lingerie “fashion” show at a sex shop. The store, Coco de Mer, calls itself an “erotic boutique.” The Hoff and his PR team told TMZ that the Baywatch star’s trip to the ER was for an ear infection. Oddly, I’ve never had the kind of ear infection that makes you want five hamburgers and stumble around breaking things. My ear infections also … Continue reading Hoff takes his daughter to the sex shop

Flu fashions

While some are lashing out with ridiculous ways to control swine flu, others are taking to the cloth to make a seemingly apocalyptic crisis somewhat fashionable. Check out French designer Romain Kremer’s turtleneck-gone-hygienic creation that was strutted down the runway during Barcelona Fashion Week.   There’s also this really sexual Louis Vuitton monogrammed face mask, which is apparently meant to be worn during a session of couture tennis. Like most LV items, however, it’s really just a way to say “I’ve got thousands of dollars to throw away on designer labels and want everyone to know it.” What better way … Continue reading Flu fashions

Chain, chain, chain

  Jean-Jacques Rousseau said, “l’homme est né libre et partout il est dans les chaînes”—“Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.” Never has this seemed truer than now, even in the fashion world. Earlier I wrote about the cage trend that has been popping up everywhere, which seems to stem from abridged personal freedoms. Basically the chain mail craze told the cage thing: “I’ll see your enclosure and raise you one head shackle.” On a model who makes Lady Guinevere look like an unglamorous and fat, Alexander McQueen threw on a graphic red dress over a studded-metal … Continue reading Chain, chain, chain

Peplums add femininity, formality to any ensemble

                      Earlier, I wrote about the dissolution of femininity in these financially trying times, when many women are returning to the workforce to supplement a dwindling household income. It seems the structured shoulder and warrioresque footwear, however, have met their match from certain designers not yet ready to see all that’s feminine and fair lose out to powerful and intimidation-causing clothing. In a trend that lost much popularity during the no curves, stick-thin craze of the last few decades, the peplum, which features twee little frills right around the hip and … Continue reading Peplums add femininity, formality to any ensemble
