Just a couple of the looks from the CFDA Fashion Awards red (purple) carpet that caught my eye. Marcia Cross in a petrol top-to-toe sequin pantsuit, although it’s a little…. blades of glory, here I come! I’ve got to hand it to her, thumbs up for doing something a little bit daring. I like the strong colors in Liv Tyler’s dress, and Jessica Alba’s dress is really nice and summery, and she looks cute.
I’m not the first to go gaga over Lady Gaga, sorry I’m just not that impressed. I’ll admit she knows how to stick out and as usual, she made a dramatic entrance complete with a turquoise wig and all. That said, doesn’t a big black tulle dress feel so… expected at a fashion gala?

How you dohieehnn?
It’s Friday, but not just your regular “TGIF”. For anyone who’s missed it, there’s been a royal wedding in England today. I just caught Kate’s dress (designed by Sarah Burton, who’s the head designer at Alexander McQueen) and the “I wills” before heading out the door to meet my brother and sister for coffee this afternoon.
I’m not that interested really, but checking out the gowns is always fun. I’ve been getting my red carpet updates from Ebba’s blog, she was in charge of commenting the Swedish royal wedding last summer and has been giving updates on today’s big wedding in her blog (and on TV) all day. I found the above photos (of princesses Eugenie and Beatrice) in her blog and had to repost them. It’s nothing I’d wear myself, but I thought it was fun to see something a little bit wild and “out there” in the flood of boring old lady hats, long garments and diamonds, someone’s got to be in charge of spicing things up!
Have you been following the royal wedding?
This is Zombie Boy
In Lady Gaga’s video for Born This Way
Lady Gaga walked the runway for Thierry Mugler’s fall 2011 fashion show. So what!? I’m more fascinated by Zombie Boy, aka Rico (real name Rick Genest), who also modeled in the show. Have you heard of this guy? He’s become somewhat of an internet sensation since going through a total of 24 hours of painful tattooing to create a skeleton-like full body tattoo. He’s a model and Thierry Mugler designer Nicola Formichetti’s muse. And he also stars in Lady Gaga’s video for her new single Born this Way.
This is the only photo I could find of what Rick looked like before getting inked. Looks like he was a rather cute and attractive guy. I’ll admit that the more I look at him, the more I’m captivated – I can’t decide if I find him attractive, but there is undoubtedly something about those puppy dog eyes of his (damn, the eyes always get me!) or maybe I’m just overly fascinated. I mean, who could stop staring?!
Here’s what he says to Bizarre magazine about the tattoos:
They’re about the human body as a decomposing corpse – the art of a rotting cadaver. It’s also a tribute to horror movies, which I love.
I wonder what mom would say if I brought him over for dinner.
