V for… Not Valentino.

Here is a picture of Eva Mendes wearing Valentino Couture at the Art Of Elysium “Heaven” Gala.

But I don’t think V stands for Valentino.

Here’s a hint…

Look at all those layers of Labia laying on her shoulders!
And the pink fleshy colored fabric.

That’s right, you’ve almost got it.

V for Vagina.

I’m taking a page from Man Repeller‘s fashion forward book here. But as I saw this dress featured on E!’s Fashion Police tonight, I made a discovery.

If the dress you’re wearing is at any point described as ethereal and feminine..

It is probably reminiscent of a vagina.

Next time think twice. Unless you’re going to Ellen and Portia’s house, no one wants to see that shit.

Post Sheen: Yeah, I just changed the word “script” to “Sheen.” As in Charlie. Because who cares about that other one.. What’s his brother’s name? Anyways, back to the point. Charlie Sheen voluntarily checked himself into rehab today. First of all, ha. Second of all, what the hell Charlie? How selfish are you? What else are we bloggers or the comedians with TV shows going to talk about on slow days now? Now LiLo and Charlie (ha) are going to be clean? Betty Ford is NOT my jam right now.


Proenza Schouler.

My new obsession is the hottest duo on the fashion scene. The co-founders, and head designers of Proenza Schouler, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough are the definition of gay power couple. Not only are they adorable together, but they worked together to make the hottest designs for this season. Their S/S2011RTW Collection took my breath away.

And here it is.

Spring Collections 2011

Hello there fellow fashionista’s and fashionisto’s,

My rundown of the Spring 2011 trends is long overdue. This is quite an eclectic season to say the least. From Michael Kors and Tory Burch, to Proenza Schouler and Derek Lam the two most prominent trends seemed to me, at opposing ends of the fashion spectrum.

The designers all had plenty of minimalistic whites (like the Band of Outsiders look in my slideshow) which all had a certain 70’s flair to them. But they also have some of the boldest colors, and busiest patterns to come down the runway in years. The contrast displayed all in one show is wonderful.

I have compiled images of my favorite looks into a slideshow at the end of this post. Please let me know what you think of the looks!

My favorite in the slideshow is the LBD with the khaki colored jacket over it by Proenza Schouler, ob-sessed. Enjoy!

Fashion Week Day One.

Ok, so as you know, or at least I hope you do, today marked the beginning of the best week of the year. New York Fashion Week. There was a healthy dose of the good, the bad, and the ugly. So I am starting a tradition for The Fagazine. I am going to talk about my pick for worst show, best show, and the garment I am obsessed with, whether it be menswear or womens.

Today, I was tipped off when I was out and about Cincinnati by my friend, a fellow fashion enthusiast that Christian Siriano’s show was a bust. Ryan Seminara, is a jack of all trades when it comes to design with a very good eye so I took his word for it. (He is amazing at duplicating dresses, and undoubtedly making his own designs spring to life, but he also designed the logo for this blog.) I didn’t take his word lightly. He sent me a few pictures of dresses that made me cringe and there weren’t many things that Christian could have done to bounce back from these atrocious beasts. They were a set of his signature “stunner” gowns that went down the runway, and three of the forty looks brought everything down with them. The red dress with entirely too much frill made me think of a prom dress gone horribly wrong, or on steroids. There is simply no way for the dresses (or the other two for that matter) to be flattering for ANYONES figure. The second dress was flesh colored with darker shades that hinted to a slightly wrinkled flesh, part of a man’s anatomy. Yes, I am talking about a scrotum. I know right? Ew. If you watched the live cast and you saw how the dress moved there is no denying the resemblance. This analogy was brought to my attention by Ryan also. Well done Mr. Siriano. The final dress looked like something produced by a freshman fashion design student as a joke. The dress lacks any shape and the shirt looks like someone strapped on a part of the great koral reef. Not cute. The idea behind this collection, according to Siriano himself, was to bring together all cultures into one collection. This sounds like a cop out to me. The collection was not coherent what so ever and it seemed that there was no trend to the color scheme, and the story line? Forget about it, non existent. Siriano has been dead on every time in years past but I can’t find any redeeming garment in this collection. So if you hadn’t guessed already, this was my choice for worst show.

My choice for best show was by far Nicholas K. This collection is totally my style and extremely wearable. All walks of life could pull off this collection. The relaxed collection consisted of muted tones and easy to wear clothing. But they all had a fashion forward aspect to them. The greens, greys and everything in between kept me on my toes throughout. This is for the fashionista(o) who still likes to be comfortable in what he or she is wearing. The loose fitted shirts and the flowing jackets were enough to make me burst with excitement. The layering that this duo pulls off is also flawless. Layering is one of my strengths and a staple of my personal style. So I may be biased, but this collection is sure to please most everyone who comes across it. I also found my favorite garment of the day (and probably the week) in this collection. A mens jacket that is relaxed and yet still dramatic enough to fit me to a t. I must have it. I am getting goosebumps just thinking about how cozy this would feel draped along my shoulders, and how fierce I would look walking around Cincinnati and the rest of the world in it. So here it is. Do you DIE?

Talk to you tomorrow kiddies. Stay ferocious.
