Today we have 2

Today we have 2 idiots of the day. Charlie(look what they put me through)Sheen and designer John(your grandfathers would have been gassed)Galliano. I don't know how alcohol does it but it seems to turn semi intelligent people into idiots.

The good, the bad, the other

Reese Witherspoon certainly fills the bill as the good at the Oscars this year.
Poor Scarlet makes the bad cut.
The others will be around later.

Idiot of the Day, again

Antonio Berardi

News from the Catwalk.-----I've been trying to wade through the Spring Fashions available and I certainly have mined some gold. If you take a body without a hint of a curve and put it into a garment with curves this is what you can have. This is a collection which could only be worn by a pencil.

Oh to be slim

I don't care how slim you are, there are some things that just don't make the cut. Like tent dresses, dresses with bad trims and poorly matched outfits. They are not going to look good no matter what.

This dress, this dress

Ok I am airing views again. This dress, to me, is just beautiful. I know that there are women out there with tons of money who can look beyond the ugly hairdo, corrective shoes, and the hateful stare of the model. I have been noticing that there are so many things that have changed about models and I am lost.

I don't understand why a designer would want to put his work on an ugly model.

I don't understand why teasing hair out to there is a good look.

I don't understand why gapped teeth are suddenly all the rage. In my day- braces.

I don't understand why models no longer have real bodies. Just bones with a light covering.

I don't understand why on the runway models frown and walk stiffly like automatons. The people who buy the clothes don't do that.

I don't understand why models, celebs, and just everyday folks are doing the pigeon toed pose. Again, in my day, corrective shoes.

I don't understand the latest fads in shoes at all.

I don't understand how a regular person is supposed to wear the see thru clothing without getting charged with indecent exposure.

I don't understand one shoulder dresses and patterned tights and skinny jeans or jeggings.

Boy do I feel old.

Jen Anniston

I am not impressed by Jen Anniston. I've seen her photographs in many mags lately and it's almost enough to make me quit reading mags. I have tried to sit through a couple of her movies only to turn them off from boredom. Have I missed something? Is there something about this person that makes them utterly fascinating to much of the American public? I am of the opinion that being married to and divorced from Brad Pitt is the only reason she is still working. I am also of the opinion that it has been a long time and that shouldn't matter. I think that the mags have made what happened to her sound like a big thing when millions of women all over the world go through divorces every day. And many of them don't have millions of dollars, and a press that has chosen Jen as the go to girl to feel sorry for. In fact, many have money problems, children, unemployment, and a lack of support from anywhere to deal with. I don't think what happened to her is a bigger deal than the other women who are in the situation. So there must be something I missed. She is an adequate actress I suppose, she is average looking, she is definitely not a style maven. I am still befuddled.

This conundrum and some others(Kardashian) has been bothering me. Children see on television little girls having tantrums and getting crowns for it. Former children are now vying to be the latest sex symbols in the entertainment world. Many of the problems children deal with now seem to be trivial to me but not to them. Having the latest phone/computer, the skinniest jeans, the funkiest colored hair and nails, driving the latest cars, etc seem to have changed expectations in life for many people. Sure, bridezillas are funny to some of us but do children see them as role models? Bad girls can do whatever they want and get paid. Snooki can fall down drunk and it's no big deal. And people like Jen can be America's Sweethearts for not doing much at all.

I am just sorry that more is not said about the people who truly deserve our interest for the things they are doing to create a better world for us.
