Papier-mâché Chanel

Chanel's Spring 2009 Couture show courtesy of Mr. Lagerfeld has left me without words. Gaultier and Dior's shows are just as awe-inducing.

The head pieces are made from paper, yes, PAPER. I am speechless.

  • Ottawa? What? There's nothing fashion about Ottawa (sorry Krystal!) This reminds me of Canada's Next Top Model being set in rural British Columbia. This makes no sense. Montreal or Toronto- only.
  • Brian Bailey will never be Tim Gunn. Never, ever.
  • House full of hipsters- AmericanApparel headband is so 2008
  • Iman looks ashy- use some lotion bb
  • The challenge seems interesting enough- a better concept than most of the American challenges last season. Army print versus 'natural' prints from the natural world.
  • Everyone from Vancouver looks dirty, unkempt and in tatters
  • Jeffery Mackinnon does not look 41. At all
  • People with anxiety disorders should just not join competitive reality TV shows
  • Jessica Biffel seems like she would be a lot of fun- or a preening drama queen (also a lot of fun)

  • Commercial over and crying continues. Jaclyn is a mess. Why does their workstation look like something from a lunar landing? Ominous
  • Jaclyn is being taken away in a gurney and has left the competition
  • Danio will either be amazing or fall really short
  • Christie is a cunt
  • Adejoke and her ethnic prints = Korto Momolu from ProRunUS? Y/Y?
  • Magarita or Maggie or Mag-doll is pretty bad ass, not gonna lie
  • Brandon is the token loudmouth queen- but he's hating on Christie, so I'm on his team.
  • Sunny Fong = fierce AZN
  • I hope Danio's legs can keep in
  • Jason Myers is a gay, white thug with Elton John cross earring? I don't get it
  • Camille - YA!
  • No offense to anyone- but did they get all these people from the ER?
  • Poor Dario
  • Baylor- did they just throw him in or was he always there?
  • 10 mins to showtime!
  • Joe Zee- YOU ARE NOT MICHAEL KORS

My reactions to the runway:

  • Baylor - meh
  • Camille - awful (she needs to wash her hair STAT)
  • Christie - Kenley (Jem much?)
  • Sunny - Love the hood, I have a problem with the skirt
  • Magarita - awful
  • Adejoke - I like it
  • Brandon - I think he missed the memo
  • Jason - Flintstone chic?
  • Kim - Trying too hard
  • Jeff - Mother of the Bride
  • Genvieve - Fashion Student
  • Jessica - Not terrible, not great

  • Jason, how are you going to go infront of Iman in a tank-top?
  • Sunny's jacket is great, the skirt is AWFUL
  • I predict Camille will leave

...And Camille is out.

Is that Chloe on the left?

Your insistence to dwell induces faces like this from me:

Hova and Beyonce, you come right after Oh, Bama and Michelle for my favourite couple. Never change.

Comme des Garçons

"Dressed smart like a London bloke
Before you speak his suit bespoke
And you thought he was cute before
Look at his pea coat; tell me he's broke!"
-Estelle ft/ Kanye West- American Boy

Watch Kanye. Watch Kanye's friends. Watch their luggage. It's Louis. Do I spot Hermès?

I'm not one to have sneaker envy, but Kanye's line for LV is making me yearn. Hard.

Here he is with his entourage (BFFs?) outside the Comme des Garçons show in gay ol' Paree.

And this is them after a run-in with Aretha.
