Hunch Of The Day // Widow Booty Break

Mouthed and Agape / Baby Gap

I was going to call it Bulimia Stick or 'Choke on It', but I thought it would be too far

Boyfriend of the Day

Hottie Photographer, Douglas Friedman. Why does it always seem that photographers are often as hot if not more so than the subjects they're hotting? Also, the Holy Roman Empire. Neither Holy, Roman or an Empire. Discuss.

Hunch of the Day: Fuscia Fold

Icon of the Week: Arm Candy

Besides being impossibly thin, impossibly rich and impossibly chic with her impossibly large fake boobs, Vicki Beckham, née Adams, has the ultimate accessory.

And that's always in vogue, kids...and occasionally in W. Now, move, kittenish, arch, grab that nonexistent thigh! And're just perfect. Keep doing that, whatever it is you're doing.

Are words really neccessary for this? Well, perhaps one word: work.

What's the difference between a 90s supermodel and a mannequin of today?

About one foot in height and fierce heels!

MOVE // Whistlin'

Keep a happy tune! Messy up-do! Cinched and distracted!

Hunch Of The Day // Diouf Down

Penciling Skirts

Time is running out, dears. If you love fashion or pretty drawings or pretty drawings of fashion, you only have 10 days until The Line of Fashion exhibit closes at the Leslie Loman Gallery, curated by Robert W. Richards. The exhibit presents over 50 years of glorious fashion illustration by such artists as Kenneth Paul Block, Christian Berard, George Stavrinos and the late Joe Eula, whose Liza you see jitterbugging and Fosse-ing above. So teeter on over in those Manolos and get schooled in some actually important history.

Leslie/Lohman Gallery
Tue - Sat, 12 noon - 6pm
26 Wooster Street (btw Grand & Canal)

Icon of the Week: Bony Soslightly

Channeling Audrey, though I doubt she eats breakfast, period -- let alone at Tiffany's.

MOVE // 80s

Look fabulous! Pout! Hip and bend!

Hunch Of The Day // Striped Skull Slouch

Icon of the Week: Vickie Dearest

Love her, hate her, or just don't get her. Posh c'est chic.


Dickie Blackwell
29 August 1922 - 19 October 2008

Now who will skewer the faux pas of the style-impaired? Armed and Akimbo could never fill Mr. Blackwell's shoes, but it would be our pleasure to take up his cunty mantle. After all, Sharon Stone isn't getting any less crazy.

In The News // Project Runway

Leanne's winning collection from the Project Runway show was pleasant and satisfying for the critical fashionista in a myriad of ways.
For Spring, Leanne stuck to a tealish blue and a sharp cream. The first and second looks were clever inverses and reinterpretations of each other; sweetheart necklines that looked pliable, super trendy above-the-knee skirts, and of course the wave effect that everyone has been doing.
In fact it was the use of scallop shapes and curves that made the collection feel modern; for a designer so green and new, everything felt calm and confident.
She almost went prom in a few places but overall the show was great. Where else this season have we seen strong geometric shapes and scallop capes?

Hunch Of The Day // Combative Concaves

Oops-There-Goes-My-Kids-All-Over-Your-Face Akimbo / Annie Get Your Gun

Lovely And The Liu-n

Boyfriend of the Day

Michael Lewis, 20-year old Israeli basketball player/model/actor/professional hottie...Mmm, the chosen people, indeed.

Dear Aspiring It-Girl, Taylor Momsen:

Eat something.

Armed & Akimbo

Oh hi...

Remember when everyone thought I was just a slutty airhead with a squeaky voice who'd do anything--and anyone--to get to the top? Well, look who's laughing now, bitches. This gal. Sure I may have sold my soul in return for this body, this career and these Brazilian ass/cheek implants, but it was nonetheless a worthwhile investment. Just look where my peers are: the Michaels, the Princes, the Whitneys, the Janets, even that cow Mimi. Victory. Suck it. Excuse me while I bask in the warm halogen glow of these flashbulbs and try not to think about my marriage falling apart and my kids inevitably hating me for using them as a prop and occasional publicity stunt. Damn, it feels good to be a gangsta.

Icon of the Week: All Dressed Up in Liu

I mean, really, though. If there was any justice in the world, Lucy Liu would have Cameron Diaz's career....and Cameron Diaz would be dead. Just look at this ensemble...sure it's probably from the ill-fated Lipstick Cashmere Mafia Jungle, but Liu pulls it off with her trademark style and cool. I just hope she got to keep the wardrobe. Also take into account that she's actually a talented actress and a grade-A fox, the other LL does it for me. Almost on a sexual level, but another dude would probably have to be there so I could get into it. You feel me, ladies? and by ladies, I clearly mean womanish men.

Icon of the Week: Quintessence of a Movie Star

Every generation of moviegoers has their quintessential male movie star, one who embodies class and sophistication, wit and intelligence, sex appeal with a sly sense of humor. The archetype, no doubt, is Cary Grant, who taught every man how to wear a tux and be a gentleman without taking themselves too seriously.

Redford was his dashing successor, always stylish, always dreamy; whether in a worn pair of jeans or dressed to undress in his best Gatsby. And really, isn’t that what style is all about: the ability to pull off any look with confidence and poise?

Gentleman George and bff, Mr. Jolie-Pitt have followed in Bob’s Italian loafer footsteps, but who amongst this latest crop of young H’wood thespians will pick up the pocket square of refinement?

My bet is on little Jimmy Franco, already breaking hearts and making ladies--of both sexes--swoon. He’s got the charm, the talent, the looks and thankfully the comedic chops to do ole Cary proud.
