Who is the Fairest Oil Painting of Them All?

Hiya Poutlings!

Digital artists never cease to amaze me. They always manage to come up with the most spectacular ideas… I would love to be able to have the absolute talent that they have.

The latest ones to hit the internet, which have completely and utterly blown my mind are well known stars, in famous oil paintings.

Meet Johnny Depp featuring in Vermeer’s famous painting of a Girl With A Pearl Earring

PFW: Jean Paul Gaultier – ’80s Gay Icons – Not as Fabulous As It Sounds…

Hiya Poutlings

There are not many words falling out of my gawping mouth as aI look again and again at the tribute to ’80s gay icons that was Jean Paul Gaultier‘s Spring 2013 runway show at Paris Fashion Week.

We all love some Madonna, Grace Jones and Boy George, but this is a cringe-worthy pop parade which did neither Jean Paul Gaultier nor the memories of these artists in their prime any justice, whatsoever.

Let the pictures do the talking with my running internal dialog of what I think:

Opening with Mork and Mindy V-tuxedo a la Grace Jones

 

 

On to more androgyny with a few Annie Lennox-es

Madonna look 1 – Blonde Ambition

Madonna look 2 – Like a Virgin

More Boy George circa Culture Club Karma Chameleon than is healthy for the senses

Michael Jackson-alikes. Dear God will it end. Philip Treacy wrung this one dry… and I have not yet blogged about, but I may do so… but Michael Jackon scares me.

oh look… a Jamie Foxx look-a-like…

Aaah, Sade.

Ziggy Bizarre-dust

The ugliest garment to ever walk a Paris runway, EVER.

and in true Jean Paul Gaultier style, he closed the runway with a bunch of late ’80s bondage house dancers – which in fairness should close everything ever.

one of the bondage house dancers who closed Jean Paul Gaultier’s show…

Jean Paul Gaultier got dealt a tough card with having to follow Phillip Treacy’s dramatic London show which featured Michael Jackson’s actual costumes, the show was only 2 weeks ago so that kinda leaves Jean Paul sitting in the dust behind Phillip Treacy. I may even have to blog about Phillip Treacy’s show, just to show you the awe of the garments he made, but the thoughts of looking at lots of Michael Jackson-likes scares me, he really does scare me.

As with Jean Paul Gaultier’s Amy Winehouse tribute last season, Jean Paul is on what seems to be an unstoppable attempt to bring back an irrelevant circus act.

What do you think of his collection? Did it hurt your eyes like it did mine??

Through the Years: A Tribute to Madonna

Hello my darling Pouters!

Since I was a little girl, I had been exposed to Madonna’s music, thanks to having a sister who was an 80’s teen and a die-hard Madge fan, I was singing “Like a Virgin” since before I knew what virginity was and singing “Pappa Don’t Preach” since I was in nappies.

So, I take this time to introduce you to the many faces Madonna has sported throughout the years, from obnoxious teen to sexy granny, here is MADONNA:

Madonna in 1984, the start of her career
“Like a Virgin”

Madge in 1985
These were her “Desperately Seeking Susan” days

In 1986, Madonna sported the blonde crop for “True Blue”

Definitely Madonna’s worst look was when she started her “Who’s that Girl World Tour” in 1987 with blonde hair and big bushy black eyebrows

1988 was the year Madonna divorced her husband of 3 years Sean Penn and the divorce was finally settled in 1989, oh and she discovered a tweezer. Good on her!

In 1989 Madonna was the first of many celebs to use the “God Card” and sparked controversy with her music video for “Like a Prayer” by using African American actor Leon Robinson to play Jesus.

The famous “Blonde Ambition World Tour” started in 1990, where Madonna was sporting her cone bra (recently sported by daughter Lourdes)

Madonna (above with Michael Jackson) dated some pornographer around this time (1991) and also Vanilla Ice. She also did her first documentary called “Truth or Dare”

1992 was the year of Madonna properly releasing herself as Hollywood’s Ultimate Bad Girl by releasing the book entitled “Sex”, starred in “Body of Evidence” and released “Erotica”

1993 was the year of “The Girly Show World Tour” where she dressed as a dominatrix and danced alongside topless dancers and needless to say, the tour got a lot of negative reviews

A naughty 1994 Madonna did an interview on David Letterman, asking him to smell her underwear and apparently it caused such an outrage that people said that she had gone too far with her sexual-ness. Watch the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_pxJtG4D4g

In 1995 she was busy with her “Bedtime Stories” tour, but decided to go for a more subtle look to regain some old fans, releasing songs like “Take a bow” and “Secret”

Probably the softest Madonna we’ve seen to date, 1996 saw Madonna acting out the role of of Evita Peron for, well, “Evita”. It was also the same year she fell pregnant with daughter Lourdes.

In 1997 Madonna gave birth to her little bad girl Lourdes Maria Ciccone and won a Golden Globe for “Best Actress” for her role in “Evita”

The release of “Ray of Light” in 1998 brought on another extreme change in Madonna’s looks and music, bringing on a more spiritual side of the singer. “This record, more than any other records, covers all the areas of life. I had recently joined Kabbalah and I had left off partying—but I had just had a baby, so my mood was complete, and I was incredibly thoughtful, retrospective and intrigued by the mystical aspects of life.”

In 1999 Madge released “Beautiful Stranger” for one of the Austin Powers movies and in the video is seen fondling Mike Meyers, much to his pleasure (lol)

For the beginning of 2000, she seemed to like doing the whole cowgirl thing with her style and it can be seen in her videos for “Music”, “American Pie” and “Don’t Tell Me” and also gave birth to her son Rocco

The “Drowned World Tour” started in 2001 and Madge starred in then-husband Guy Richie’s disastrous movie “Swept Away”

Madonna releases the song “Die Another Day” for the James Bond movie and also brings a new (and buff) body to our attention

The year of the infamous Madonna/Britney/Christina kiss was 2003 when they decided they were going to make controversy and kiss on the stage at the 2003 MTV ideo Music Awards. Nowadays, that’s just another drunk night at some silly club or another Gaga music video (lol)

In mid-2004 Madonna embarked on the Re-Invention World Tour in the U.S., Canada and Europe. It became the highest-grossing tour of 2004, earning $125 million. She made a documentary about the tour named “I’m Going to Tell You a Secret”. (Thanks Wikipedia!)

2005 was Madge’s worst fashion faux pas! It was the “Hung Up” days and she was sporting leotards left, right and centre. Thank GOD that phase came and went…

In 2006 Madonna calmed down a bit and then randomly decided to adopt a little Malawian boy (as you do) named David Banda. David came with a lot of complications (you know, the father deciding he wanted him back, etc), but in the end it all turned out for the best and Madonna got to keep her baby (teehee, you see what I did there?)

2007 was a year between the “Confessions” and the “Sticky & Sweet” tours where Madonna kept her leotard / curly hair look *puke*

In 2008 Madonna divorced her second husband Guy Richie and moved on to greener (and sexier) pastures and his name was Jesus Luz, but the relationship ended in 2010

Madge turned her sexy on for a song with Justin Timberlake called 4 Minutes in 2009, still sporting the damn leotard, but at least she was slowly getting tired of it

Doing a campagne for Dolce * Gabbana in the pic above in 2010, Madonna also did something terrible in that year and gave the TV show “Glee” the right to rape all of her wonderful music and “Glee: The Music, The Power of Madonna” was released.

Pictured above with daughter Lourdes in 2011. Madge released a clothing line called Material Girl with Lourdes and Taylor Momsen was the face of it until she was later replaced by Kelly Osbourne.

2012: The beautiful bitch turns 54 in August this year and personally I don’t think she’s looked better! If you watch her music video for Girl Gone Wild where she’s got boys dancing in high heels, you’d swear she’s still 26 years old

Let’s hear an applause for the mad woman that’s kept us entertained for almost 3 decades of our lives.

All HAIL MADONNA!!!

Plastic Surgery to look like a Celebrity

Hey Pouting Girls and Boys;

I remember a few years back when I was still an “MTV kid”, I used to watch a programme called I want a famous face and it used to both shock and fascinate me with just how obsessed people become with looking like celebrities. Sure the show had brought on some major (and often wonderful) results, but would you really go under the knife to look like, say, Pamela Anderson, if you knew for a fact you could never look like her?

Once the show had even given Mike and Matt Schlepps -really ugly twins from Arizona – the chance to look like Brad Pitt and although they didn’t exactly turn out to look like Brad, they turned out absolutely gorgeous after the surgery anyway and were thrilled with the results.

Sometimes though, people go a bit crazy. A mom in the UK spent over $16 000 to make herself look like Michael Jackson. Yes, a white female from the UK made herself look like Michael Jackson. Wierd. Oh and her name is Miki Jay, somehow I get the feeling she changed that too.

Then you get the peeps who do it for all the wrong reasons. Chinese girl Xiaoqing who’s only 21 years old has also spent a small fortune in making herself look like Jessica Alba to win back her boyfriend. *Crickets* For a boyfriend? Really? Urgh!

Lisa Connell had a good reason though. This 29 year old had an inoperable brain tumor and her lifelong dream was to look like Demi Moore, which, I guess was an alright reason to fulfill one’s dreams even though she was pretty to begin with.

So, would you go under the knife to look like your favourite celeb? As much as I love Gaga, Xtina and Britney… I don’t think so! Everyone has something that makes them unique and if you’re copying someone else you’re just making yourself less “you”. Anyway you can’t steal someone else’s uniqueness no matter how hard you try. I mean, have you ever seen anyone successfully copying Angelina Jolie’s pout? I sure haven’t!

Happy Tuesday Peeps and remember that you’re beautiful just as you are!

Peace and Love xoxox
