La Roux - Bulletproof
Uploaded by UniversalMusicGroup - Music videos, artist interviews, concerts and more.
I discovered La Roux while I was watching It's On With Alexa Chung a few weeks ago, and I immediately began to look up and listen to more of this British group's songs. Bulletproof is by far my favorite, and the video is so visually haute.

"It’s not something that I’m ashamed of, just isn’t something that I go around telling everyone. Yes. I have both male and female genitalia, but I consider myself a female. It’s just a little bit of a penis and really doesn’t interfere much with my life. The reason I haven’t talked about it is that it’s not a big deal to me. Like come on. It’s not like we all go around talking about our vags. I think this is a great opportunity to make other multiple gendered people feel more comfortable with their bodies. I’m sexy, I’m hot. I have both a poon and a peener. Big f*cking deal."
I still love her wacky style and crazy personality, so if she's fine with it, then so am I...but I must say, it is still a little weird.
Check out the video clip below(you can see it at 1:10), and see what caused all the hoopla concerning Lady GaGa's little friend

Someone please tell me why this song has been stuck in my head for nearly a week? I find myself singing this at the most random times...it's really starting to annoy and upset me. lol.
Oh well, Whitney's making a comeback at the end of this month, so I guess I can let is slide for now ;)

Elle Style Director Kate Lanphear
So ladies (or gents), if you're brave enough jump on the "half-shaved head" bandwagon, please make sure that 1) you have the right face shape to carry such a short cut, 2) you have a pretty face, 3) you have a pretty head, and 4) you exude tons of self confidence because it's going to take A LOT to pull off this do.

Saw this online and I had to post it. Looks like the fashion world IS taking steps to promote healthy models. Taken backstage of the Givenchy Haute Couture Show.

Awhile back, my friend and I were watching MTV, and a promo for "It's On With Alexa Chung" came on. He asked me who she was, and I honestly didn't know. I had seen bits and pieces of her show before and it was okay, but it was nothing to jizz in my pants about. But as I watched more and more of her show daily, I began to really like the show and Alexa Chung. She has awesome style, and everyday I look forward to see what she's wearing.
Her great sense of style may be due to her being a former model for both Elite and Storm Models, and also having a successful career as a host and fashionista in the United Kingdom. Now that she's here in the United States, reviews have been mixed about her and her television show, but I think a lot of people just don't understand her sense of humor. She conducts offbeat interviews with celebs, and plays silly games and asks them off-the-wall questions.
She's also very witty, and has a dry sense of humor, which is why I think I like her so much. If you haven't wathced her show yet, you really should check it out. Catch "It's on with Alexa Chung" on MTV, 12pm everday.
*BTW- did you know she's half Chinese??

I'm all about embracing current trends and hot, new, "it" items, but I'm sorry to say that I absolutely desteste the Christopher Kane tshirts that almost every fashionista and celebrity is sporting. I don't know if I'm missing something or what, but I don't understand why anyone would want an all-over print of a gorilla, a chimp, or a baboon on a tshirt. And the fact that this shirt retails for over $300, makes me want it even less. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of Christopher Kane's work, but this is something that Idon't think I'd be caught dead in.

Gawd, I don't I don't even know where to begin with this collection. I think I loved everything that Riccardo Tisci had to offer for Givenchy's Spring 2010 Menswear line, and I think anyone who doesn't is dumb (sorry, I had to say it). I'm glad that menswear is finally getting some elegance and masculinity back, and I'm also glad that Tisci is continuing to be one of few designers to keep his model selection diverse and masculine. It really is refreshing to see manly men wearing high fashion, as compared to the sickly, feminine looking waif boys that many designers cast in their shows.
