Like the rest of you, I nervously look forward to Fall/Winter fashion lines. Will 'they' - 'they' being the gay men designer denizens obsessed with 5'11", 110 lbs. teenage girls who model their insanely priced runway bullshit that the rest of us hope trickles down to our local shopping mall - make us happy?
Well, this season...I have to ask...WTF?!?!
There's a few designs that are OK. This post is not about that.
The glove guys are smirking - but they've earned it so we cannot begrudge them the pleasure. They've had to make do with bridal magazines and the odd prodom for the past two decades so no wonder they are happy.
Just knock off the dance of joy in front of us, OK, glove guys? We're not exactly licking our wounds - we just have the fashion equivilent of 'blue balls'. Because we're looking at the latest fashion mags, and we're getting in a righeous pissy mood.
It started with the silly Victoria Beckham abominations - that many of you emailed me about. Latex crotch-highs - custom-made if fashion gossip is to be believed. While a part of me thought it was awesome that a high-profile celeb was wearing fetish gear to a Macy's opening, the design left me cold. I need heels on crotch-highs to make me happy.
Can any of our UK-based viewers tell us about 'No Heroics'? From what I've read online, it's a comedy about superheroes on their off-hours; and where there's superheroes, there's usually catsuits/boots on show! There's a great boot shot at 3:18 in the trailer - is she a regular character?
There's another clip with good boot content available here at IO9.com.
