BABEWATCH [Fashion Week Edition]: Alexander Wang’s Amazian Jr. Niece

February 22nd, 2011 | 6 comments | Posted by Diana

Last week, I caught up with the goings-on of NY fashion week almost entirely through the musings of our pals The Fug Girls for NY Mag, who thankfully survived a 20-minute fashionista pileup at the Erin Fetherston show, multiple uses of those hideous Port-a-Johns in Lincoln Center, and about a zillion (which is probably a zillion too many) sightings of the newly-single Vanessa Hudgens:

Is this leather? Or pleather? Whateather; I hate it!

But aside from The Fug Girls’ fun anecdotes, stories about this annual fashion clusterfuck tend to just annoy and/or confuse me. Maybe I’m grouchy because I need a new bag. And some new booties. And a new brown pleather minidress. And I’m suffering from a raging case of lady hormones. And I’m freezing my arse off (LA’s in the 50s right now–but it feels like 37 degrees in my house), so looking at a bunch of skinny people with bare legs instead of winter coats in February in cold-ass New York just makes me feel COLDER.

Now London is celebrating its own Fashion Week, and I can’t seem to deal with it either. My fingers are freezing just as I type the word “fashion.” Is that why I can’t look at these pictures of you outside the Burberry show, Gemma Chang? Whoever you are? Who are you?

Adult Diapers: The Musical

September 30th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

The following photos were taken from a Japanese fashion show designed to destigmatize incontinence by featuring adult diapers (what with 20% of Japan’s population over 65). But I like to think of it as scenes from Adult Diapers: The Musical.


[CHORUS]

So fucking what if we peed in our pants
That doesn’t mean we don’t stand a chance
In life
In love!

So fucking what if we peed in our pants
That doesn’t mean we can’t make romance
In life
In our pants!

So fucking what if we peed in our pants
That doesn’t mean we can’t sing and dance
On this stage
In da club
In our hearts!

[YOUNG GUY]

I’m OK
You’re OK
But I think you’ve got some leakage

[OLD GUY]

That’s OK
It’s the story of my life
Always got some leakage

[TOGETHER]

Depends
Isn’t always dependable
Poise
Becomes expendable
How can you be happy
When you’re wearing an adult nappy?

You can call it incontinence
But it’s the same on all continents
Adult diapers bring us shame
And we’re not to blame!

Depends
Isn’t always dependable
Poise
Becomes expendable
But we must find a way to be happy
Even wearing an adult nappy!

ADULT DIAPERS: THE MUSICAL is a tour de force. Piss-in-your-pants funny.” – Amy Spelman, The Record
