I was strolling around the new Santa Monica Place Mall that just re-opened a few weeks ago and came across these fine dames. At first I thought it was your usual botox/silicone/ vinyl/whatever -else- that -is- in- the- plastic -category  typical LA women. However, I was half mistaken ( they weren’t moving)- it was a series of mannequins done up by the Santa Monica Mannequin Collective! Overjoyed, I ran over and took photos with my iPhone (totally forgot to throw my regular camera in my pocketbook-so, sorry for the bad quality). Each of the 100 mannequins was re-imagined by local artists and designers. My favorite is the Pippi Longstocking mannequin by Lululemon Athletics. Obviously they had me in mind when they made that. (Well, a drag version of me if I were a man-who has broad shoulders like that? Okay, maybe not me.) Anyway, Ed Hardy did one by basically shatting on Marie Antoinette. She’s rolling in her grave, as we speak. Madame Antoinette is covered in tattoos and in a tawdry dress. Oh, the Humanity!! But it’s all for a good cause to benefit Otis College of Art and Design ( what about Hall?)

Now I’m gonna have Netflix Mannequin with pre-SATC Kim Catrall.

Stylist Robbie Spencer and Photographer Richard Burbridge did a men’s fashion spread in Dazed Digital recently focusing on “War Heroes”. Even though I don’t really pay attention to men’s fashions, I really like these photos. I don’t quite understand the baby limbs on the face, but I’ll go with it. Maybe it’s representing the exploding mines and the limbs thrown out everywhere and so a couple limbs got stuck on the dude’s face. Or something like that. I really like the red licorice coming out of the general’s mouth. So metaphorical. Having said that, I think I’m gonna Netflix Inglorious Basterds again…

Ever wonder what a farm girl from the depths of the midwest would look in Chanel? You know, the girl who has unkempt hair, but a potentially supermodel face, but doesn’t know it because people around her are too busy picking up pig poo? Yeah. Well, Karl had the same epiphany (or Netflixed Green Acres)and made a whole damn collection about it! In all honesty, I kind of like it. I’d totally wear the suit dress in the fifth photo and go apple picking or do something girly and quaint like that.  That dude in the second photo is NOT gesturing, ‘These are my b*tches and Hos’ . No.  He’s just making sure the camera gets his perfectly tweezed eyebrows.  By the way, it looks like clogs are back!

Dear Rodarte,

I suspect District 9 , Predator, and Swamp Thing were on your Netflix the week before you designed your Spring 2010 collection. Although both movies ( with the exception of Predator) are totally the bomb, the fashion was not, particularly, anything to replicate, let alone be a glimmer of inspiration. Looking at your collection,  I have an explained  urge to gymp ( not in the Pulp Fiction sense of the term, but in the  cheezy, tween craft sense of the term.) I’ll let you know if I have any extra weed whacking string to donate ’cause I’m cool like that.

Your pal,

Roxy

Daria Marchik 

is a freelance photographer from NY , but was born in Moscow. Here is one of her photographs involving a 

a onesie for two pregnant ladies. That better have a butt flap in case one has to pee. or both. I remember when I was preggers I had to be within 10 feet of the toilet or I could have  gotten the case of the  Fergies. Especially, the last 3 months… 

Getting back on track, They look a little twiddle dee and dum-ish. With a twist of Alison Goldfrapp and those creepy twins from Gormenghast.

If you haven’t seen Terry Gilliam’s Gormenghast, then you must drop everything and Netflix it to the top of your list! It is so bizzare and cool! Those kooky Brits! Also, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is in that, so you know it’s worth the 6 hours total ( yes, I watched it all…. over 2 nights,… okay, in one shot with no bathroom break or snackums break ). I always wondered why they never showed this in the US, but I don’t think Americans would get it. They would just think it’s gay. Be sure to check out the PERSIAN CAT ROOM! It’s where I want to go when I die…

Here’s vintage Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as Steerpike in the mini-series.
