I was really feeling the love for New York today thanks to a nauseating ride with a horn-honking, cursing cabbie who seemed to be belatedly auditioning for a role in Grand Theft Auto IV. In fact, the experience was so much like Grand Theft Auto that I decided to shoot my driver instead of paying the fare.
What?! Don’t judge! Okay, I admit that didn’t shoot him. I beat him to death with a baseball bat. It’s so much more personal that way, and I do love to give high-velocity blood spatter that special, personal touch.
Fortunately, when I got home, new photos of my idol, Coco, cheered me up.
She’s a sight for sore eyes, isn’t she? You may read some of my previous musings on the beauteousness that is Coco here, here, here, here and here. Oh, and someone better tell me that Coco’s pimpalicious lovah Ice-T is NOT really leaving Law & Order: SVU. Damn those cliffhangers!
Now that I’m back in my happy place, thanks to Coco, I can get down to business and bring you the fashion news of the day.
- The New York Observer has a long article on gladiator sandals. I’m amazed that the paper was able to find more to say about them after this April shoe article. The earlier article tried to terrify the ladies by informing them that gents think their shoes are ugly. Similarly, the new article informs us that “many men” are “bemused” by gladiators, which is proven by the fact that one saleschick’s boyfriend teases her about her shoes. My reaction, once again, is: “I don’t fucking care what men think of my shoes. But thanks for sharing your unimportant opinion.”
- The New York Times has a tribute to Yves Saint Laurent. I was struck by three big pictures of black models wearing some of his most influential looks. You can see those here. I previously commented on Saint Laurent’s use of black models here and here.
- Last but not least, WWD has an item on Tuesday’s party at the relocated Roseark, the West Hollywood, Calif., store that carries my jewelry. (The store’s new address is 1111 N. Crescent Heights Boulevard.) I attended with gorgeous California friends ENC and Stef. We saw Courteney Cox Arquette, but we missed Salma Hayek. I think we were distracted by a woman with the most pronounced shelf ass we’d ever seen. Seriously, I was about to set my empty glass on it before I realized it was attached to a person. This ass was the Eighth Wonder of the World. Kim Kardashian would weep with envy to see that ass. I hate to blaspheme, but I think that ass might rival Coco’s. May lightening or Ice-T strike me for saying such a thing!
ENC is wearing my Queen of Scots and Matilda necklaces.
