Inspiration Akimbo / Tie Dye For
1OAK Akimbo // Near Miss!
March 31, 2009 --
IF you want Valentino Garavani to hang out, you'd better provide him with some suitable eye candy. The 76-year- old designer was spotted at West 17th Street club 1Oak last Sunday during the venue's self-promoted "gay night." A spy told us that the couture king "walked in, scanned the crowd and then immediately turned and walked out." The snitch said, "a lot of the guys were abuzz when they saw Valentino walk in, and were disappointed he didn't stay."
Fuck. AnA has partied with amazing photographers, fabulous designers, ANTM winners, and more millionaires than leggings in our closets, but rarely do we canoodle with legends! Was his attitude over the sell-out success of his film? Or when you've survived wars, breakups, various recessions, and Madonna, are you allowed to act however you want?

Style.com recently named their favorite faces, the most popular girls on the runway this past season. Girl. These faces are about as fresh as that arugula salad Dolly left in the AnA refrigerator last month, citing a moody bowel, which in reality turned out to be a severe coke addiction. The nose knows, missy.
I see one Asian face and a whole bunch of blah. Amidst a lackluster fashion week, save the brilliance of Alexander McQueen and a few notable others, these bony, pallid faces leave a bad taste in my already sour mouth. Note how Style gives top billing to Tao Okamoto and her flawless bowl cut, but she's only at the ten spot.
Personally, I couldn't pick the majority of these girls out of a line-up, but then again, that is the point. I guess as long as there's a fierce token for us to latch onto we really can't complain. Come here, Tao. That's right, shh, you're with family now. AnA will never let you go...that is unless we're in the vicinity of alcohol or reasonably attractive men.
It has happened to me. Well, all of us but AnA really feels its mostly for us. The video for Auntie Ru's "Cover Girl" (FACE FACE FACE!) is online and it is... well, it is. Judge for yourselves, Trannies (and Trannylovers).

Drag Race Akimbo: And the Winner Is...
As soon as it was over, we were treated to the reunion special, bringing back all the girls for some closure and general shade-throwing (Shannel: I didn't lose to you, I left. I just wanted you to know that). Tempers and wigs were already riding high when Ru brought out the judges for some face time with the ladies. After so much bleating and weeing from the likes of Tammie Brown and Channel about how much negativity was thrown their way, Ru had the biggest blow-up from one diva mentor to a diva mentee since Tyra yelled at that limp-haired hood rat Tiffany in cycle 4 of Top Model.
Claws in, girls, Motha does not take that kind of back-sass. I can't wait to see everyone on the red carpet when they accept their much-deserved Best Reality Competition Emmy. If there's any justice in this mixed up, tranny-loving world, it'll happen...
Other Blogs Akimbo
AnA loves a flirty Catherine Malandrino frock. We also love booze, discounts, and an excuse to mock the Meatpacking bridge and tunnel roaming the sidewalks.
See you there!
Biopic Akimbo // Judy!
News, glorious news! Oscar nominee Anne Hathaway is set to play our Lord and Savior Judy Garland in an upcoming film!With Herr Weinstein backing this film, Anne will probably nab her Best Actress Oscar! Let's hope the booze and cigarettes don't fuck it up.
