These are Martin Margiela new Fall 2009 sunglasses. That could totally work as a windshield for a remote control car. Also, you need to have the biggest nose to wear this. Really! Where does it rest on your nose? I think it would just slide down my nose and become a chin guard. I don’t even know who wears chin guards… Anyway, this crap costs about $600. Doesn’t  a real car windshield cost that much? I would just rip it off the remote control car and weld butter knives to the sides , if I really wanted one. This would actually balance a mono-brow quite nicely on the other hand.

Spanish fashion designer Josep Font designed the first 4 photos for his 2009 Fall Haute Couture collection. I love this! I found this while perusing through Yahoo. The odd thing is that he’s not listed on Style.com. Anyway, it looks so oompa loompa- ish and Dr. Seuss- ish! You could so poke someone’s eye with just a shrug of the shoulders. I like that! These 2 photos above are from his past collections. I wish I had known of a talent like this before. The hats are brilliant!I think Josep is my new favorite designer. Check out his AWESOME site here. It is really an experience.

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Haute Couture Collection was very innovative! Who wouldn’t want alligator overalls to get down and dirty in? I bet paint just rolls off like beads of water off a newly scotch guarded couch. No, kidding aside- Jean Paul Gaultier is one of my most favorite designers of all time. Thierry Mugler is on the list , too, which I think was an influence on Gaultier,  which is apparent in the two 3-dimensional  bodysuits above. Lady Gaga must be trying to whip this up on a Michael’s budget with aluminum foil and an orgami kit. By the way, is Jean Paul mowing down a Klondike Bar? I wonder what he would do for a Klondike Bar? He would  probably sing his international smash hit , ‘How to do zat!’ . I have the single on tape. I need to transfer that to my iPod for my listening and ‘making fun of’ pleasure.

This season’s Chanel haute Couture show didn’t look much like a Chanel collection. It seems that Karl the Kaiser (roll) is moving into another direction, away from the ‘classic Chanel’ look. My favorite look from this collection is the wedding dress and the black evening gown in the third photo. Although the guy is most likely  the ‘maid of honor’ at that wedding (wink , wink)! The gloves or finger-lettes (as I like to call them) are super cool! You can still use your iPhone while wearing gloves- that Krazy Karl did it again! The first photo looks like something my cats would do if I left them alone in a room with no food and water but only with that outfit and a Roomba.

So this is Valentino’s Fall 2009 Haute Couture Collection. I like this , but I don’t LOOOOOOVE it. I feel like I’ve seen this somewhere else before but I can’t put my finger on it. The lace gown in the last photo is wonderful, but could pass for a Jessica McClintock gown. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, BUT it is supposed to be Haute Couture. Which means it probably costs more than your car. I think what draws me in are those masks… so mysterious, so Venetian… (like the casino) . No, I’m kidding. I like those masks/ hats… it’s a twofer! Is it me, or does the coat in the 2nd photo look Victor & Rolf-ish?

After 22 years of designing, Christian Lacroix is closing its legendary design house. That sucks. Apparently, the slumping economy is to blame. I think everything is the economy’s fault. I think the endless rain in the East Coast is the economy! I think polar bears becoming cannibals are the economy’s fault. I think my cat’s spinal cord injury is because of the damn economy! The economy killed Michael Jackson! I’m getting off track, BUT if you see the economy, smack him in the face for me. I’ll stop. Anyway, wipe away your tears, because it seems like Lacroix may be making a comeback probably after the economy is done crapping on everyone! Let’s keep our fingers crossed and give the economy a laxative to just let it bottom out (no pun) faster. Sorry for the imagery.  By the way, his last wedding dress was spectacular! Long live Lacroix!

Is that an oxymoron?  Anyway, Givenchy ‘s Fall 2009 Haute Couture collection was most definitely inspired Islamic dress mainly worn in some parts of the Middle East. From the jeanie pants (sagging crotches are in , y’all!) to the gold head gear that would put the flashiest rapper to shame, Givenchy showed another side to it’s definition of a glamourous woman. I think Michael & Hushi did this about 8 years ago. I have several fantastic shirts from them with script in Farsi and almond-eyed sketch women that look like drawings from this book of poetry called, Hofez. Really cool stuff. The Hushi half is working on a new project called ‘Trash & Luxury’ that I will post in a few days (because it deserves a post of its own!) For now, here are some past  Michael & Hushi looks below:
