LFW: saying “Fabulous” In a British Accent

Hiya Poutlings

Hope you’re all doing faaaabulous!! Anyway, anyone been keeping up with London Fashion week? Well, I have, but very briefly.

Who are the front row fame ho’s at this Fashion Week? Well, its certainly not lived up to the celebrity drenched hub that is NYC.

Even New York this year wasn’t up to it’s usual star-spotting standard. This year was just dull in having couples who add up to one mega star between the two of them, I mean Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas or even Kim Krapdashian and Kanye West *vomit* I’d much rather have a Gwen Stafani or a Tilda Swinton over those couples, you know, people who really are known and matter substantially more? Yes. Those!

London, on the other hand has been even more disappointing. A group of “It” fashionaista models, Laura Bauley, Poppy Delevigne, bloggers and self-affected children, Alexa Chung, Kelly Osbourne, Pixie Geldof… oh and of course, Lady Gaga jumping up and down looking for attention, again… a bit like an annoying little dog, but worse.

The highlights of the lowlights so far:

At Henry Holland, Alexa Chung tells the other spiffingly fabulous fashion twigs how she doesn’t even know why anyone is interested in her.

Kelly Osbourne interrupts and offers advice on how to wear sunglasses and speak in two accents at once. And say “all fashion” all the time on TV.

At Burberry, Anna Wintour having a old girls meet ‘n greet with photographer Mario Testino. She actually looks her age in this snake print suit from the cruise ship boutique.

Dita Von Teese starts an impromptu outdoor burlesque by sexily dropping her umbrella then remembers she’s wearing corseting that renders her incapable of even scratching her head and waitis a knight in a shining retro tuxedo to save her.

Who ever the hell Tali Lennox is (I guess by the name she is Annie’s kid – maybe!), I like her Burberry Prorsum swag.

Who ever the hell this chick is needs to go back to her struggling artists loft and brush her hair…

Samantha Cameron wonders why she can’t sit with a bitchy fashion blogger or a child of celebrity.

Child of American music royalty, Daisy Lowe shows no sign of her step mother, Gwen Stefani’s style, grace or genuine rock ‘n roll attitude.

14 year old Marc Jacobs’ muse Elle Fanning shows up to Topshop Unique straight from school… Aaah, does it make you miss how glamourous school uniform can be? hahha. NAAT.

Olivia Palermo does it up proper fashion, like also at Unique. She has an uncanny ability to make you want to buy clothes that will make you look like you are wearing a black plastic bin bag.

…well that’s all for now folks.

THE 8TH ANNUAL PREGNANT BIKINI PAGEANT

Hiya Poutlings

The wonderful Miss Sandylashxx, has previously mentioned the Miss Pregnant pagent that is held… Well, my blog is about something of a similar nature…. pregancy and pageants….

In Houston Texas, this past Thursday 40 expecting mothers all in their third trimester strutted their stuff in the 8th ANNUAL PREGNANT BIKINI PAGENT.

The women in this competition are not only competing who looks the best, pregnant, in a bikini, but their are events throughout the day designed to to “test” their mommy skills too, like the nappy toss and baby change.

Here are some of the contestants!

IMPORTANT:
Now PLEASE bear in mind my opinion is based on my experience of being around pregnant women. I have never been pregnant, so this is possibly incorrect, but I have all the necessities if I wished to be so… I also never wish to be pregnant or have children of my own, so let’s just put that out there before I give you my thoughts.

I believe that I understand why these women think its a great idea  to enter such a contest, simply because generally speaking due to the change that happens to a womens body during in pregnancy CAN result in the women feeling insecure and  unattractive, especially around friends who are still skinny with their social lives and sex lives intact. So, I’m sure it’s a fun experience to be around a bunch of other girls going through the same thing.

However, bikini contents can be trashy to begin with (yes, NOT all are, but most of them are…) I have no problem with pregnant women in general, or even a pregnant mommy-to-be in a bikini on the beach… but to parade around and seek attention just before giving birth really gives me the impression that once your new baby starts to get attention you used to get (by parading around in bikinis/generally from your looks) you will start to get jealous of the attention the baby receives, instead of yourself and well, I don’t think later on in life or when you are supposed to be “bonding” with the new infant that its going to bode well emotionally with that child.

To be frank, I’m happy these women have the confidence to do this, I simply wouldn’t ever have the confidence to this normally, never mind if I happened to be pregnant. It doesn’t however mean I anyway condone this type of behaviour, my honest first reaction to seeing these pictures were: WTF A BUNCH BREEDERS, WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU DO THIS, and WHO THE HELL IS THE FATHER OF THAT CHILD? I suppose this type of behaviour feeds the strange and weird pregnancy fetishes?

Jennifer Clay, 32 Weeks Pregnant and the Winner…

Anyway, at the end of the pageant, Jennifer Clay, who is 32 weeks pregnany was crowned the winner based on her grace, presentation, and what the judges called “it” factor. In six weeks she’ll be getting a crown of completely different kind… So um, well done to her for being beautiful, having good mothering skills (?), having the “it” factor, getting knocked up and well, winning this daft contest, I guess….

Would love to hear your thoughts… Am I the only one that thinks this is completely BIZARRE?
