Were The 2009 Collections More Diverse At NYFW?


Check out the statistics put together by the blog Jezebel on the diversity quotient for the NYFW runway models.  You may also be interested to know which designers did not cast one model of color–the results may surprise you.



Speaking of surprises, according to the Cut, rapper, former back up dancer and Britney’s babies daddy—Kevin Federline is said to be developing a line of children’s clothing.

“It’s a really tough business, I’m trying to take it seriously and make a quality product for kids but not have parents pay like $500 or something ridiculous for a pair of jeans," he told WWD.

I’ll let you leave your own punch line in the comments section below…


This Girl REALLY Need Help…

Folks are gasping at the site of Lindsay Lohan these days and not because of her substance abuse.  It seems that LiLo has a serious weight issue going on.  The two photos on the left are from May and June 2008 respectively and the last is her most recent photo–taken this month.

According to a story on Feb. 16th in the Huffington Post, Lohan was asked by US Weekly at NYFW about her weight loss and she said that it was “unintentional”

"I eat. I had my Big Mac yesterday from McDonald’s," she told Us Sunday at the Matthew Williamson NYC store opening. "I eat just as much as I always have."

The 22-year-old actress (who has raised eyebrows before for her skinny frame) said she thinks she has just been "working a lot." She said she also blames "stress … and lack of sleep when I travel."

Honestly, PLEASE eat a few of those Big Mac’s more often, you look unwell.


More Funny Fashion…

Do you remember the Pac Man themed fashions I posted on Halloween last year?  Well Giles Deacon didn’t disappoint during London Fashion Week with this zip-up party hat and the herculean proportions on the cropped jacket below.

While I’m at it, here’s a few doozies that are worth noting from NYFW.  Starting with these remarkably phallic ensembles.

    Just a small request. Could you make a link to your Friday fashion lessons for “different shapes” available on the home page?? It is getting really difficult to find them. Thanks!

    (I tried to direct people from a forum that I belong to, and they gave up because it was way too difficult to find the information)

  2. You bet Ruby, sorry for the inconvenience!!!! I’ll work on that this weekend.

  3. Ok Ruby, everything should be all set. There is now a Categories box to search for any topic that I have written about. If you scroll down to the Fashion Lesson line, you will see all the differents subtopics that I have written about.

    Let me know what you think. Thanks for the excellent feedback!!!!!!!!!

    I LOVE the new categories box!!! It really makes it easier to find things.

  5. I’m glad you like it Ruby. Keep the excellent suggestions coming!
