Greetings gorgeous dolls.
Anna Anna Fo Fanna
Did you catch the finale of The Fashion Show last night? If not and you don’t want me to spoil it, stop reading now. If so, my fave designer won — yay! Can’t wait to buy some of the pieces. Think she won because viewers, i.e. voters, actually wanted to buy her pieces? Fancy that. Or is it that she shares the name of Vogue’s most infamous editrix? Fashion osmosis? It’s a theory. Albeit a lame one. Either way, Bravo, Anna, bravo.
Girdles for Guys
Last week, I wrote about Man Spanx. This week, TIME’s Josh Quittner enlists his daughters to judge a girdle-off. See it with your own two peepers. Can you stomach it?

YSL Documentary – The Look
Were you first in line to see Valentino The Last Emperor? Can’t get enough of designer documentaries? Then set aside some time to watch this 1992 Yves Saint Laurent Documentary. It’s free to watch online here — for now, anyway.
Katie Holmes on So You Think You Can Con, er, Dance
Was I the only one completely flabbergasted by Katie Holmes on SYTYCD last night? Apparently not. Read the backlash here. I had to tell myself to Keep Calm and Have a Cupcake.
The biggest problem wasn’t the lame lip-synching or the less-than-stellar dancing. It was that it wasn’t live and it was never introduced as such. In all the hype and promotion before the show, we were always made to believe Katie Holmes would be doing a live performance on SYTYCD. Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining, Ashlee Simpson.
Nigel Lythgoe’s reaction on Twitter? “Everyone lip synchs when they’re dancing. I’m going to ban all the Katie haters. You make me sick. Your attitude stops ‘stars’ doing charity work. Understand why she did it CHILDREN.” My two cents: Eew. My four cents: Do Broadway performers lip-synch when they dance? Why do a performance where you have to “sing” then? Katie could have just danced. Lythgoe’s self-righteous reaction makes me want to stop watching altogether. Tata, English Muffin.
And since I’m about to embark on a road trip through the desert, with no trusty TiVo by my side (I’ll miss you, BFF), that will be as easily done as said. See you from the road!
Here’s hoping I can look half as chic as these Kate Spadies in the desert.
p.s. I’m currently featured on one of my all-time favorite shopping sites, Gilt, in the I’m Gilty blog! Please have a look-see. If you’re not already a member of the invite-only sample sale site (where you can shop designer at up to 90% off), then by all means, be my guest.
