NYFW : Norisol Ferrari Runway Show

Hiya Poutlings!

As I mentioned in my post about the Sheri Hill runway show, I am trying to keep updated with all the news from New York Fashion Week, but there is just an overload of amazing designers, models, and trends that I am struggling to keep ahead of it all. I will try and keep you updated with the most interesting stories, in my opinion of course 😉

For the past five days there has been nothing but familiar teenage faces pouting their way down the runway, show after show. So it’s refreshing to see a designer really kick the trend in the teeth and do something completely different. Possibly cast women that may just *gasp* around the same age as their respective target market. NORISOL FERRARI did just that at her show on Monday morning. Norisol Ferrari sent icons like Carol Alt, Alva Chinn and Carmen Dell’Orefice, who is 81 years young, down the catwalk amidst some of the fresher faces.

Alva Chinn – 57 Years Old

Carmen Dell Orefice – 81 Years Old

Carol Alt – 51 years old

The iconic faces were a huge hit amongst the crowd, especially since they didn’t just do the old walk-turn-repeat favoured by most of the designers these days. Alva Chinn for the most part, shashayed leisurely down the runway, stopping to strike a seductive pose or two along the way. Carmen Dell’Orefice also interrupted her walk to elegantly mug for the cameras, creating lots of applause amongst the audience.

It was a lot of enthusiam coming from the audience, which I would imagine are mostly Upper-East-Types (simply because I have watched Gossip Girl, hahaha) but then, these were definitely clothes for the confident, mature and above all sophisticated women. There was a definite femme fatale vibe to this collection, which included seaside separates paired with oversized hats, trim, neutral pieces and sweeping evening gowns, while I am not sure I have the attitude to pull off the saucer-sized chapeaux, I have no doubt Carmen Dell’Orefice and crew would put today’s street styles to shame under of those hats.

I certainly take my hat off to these ladies to remind the younger generation that this is certainly elegance in its finest form.

Things That Are Wrong With the World : COURTNEY STODDEN

Hi Pouters!

WARNING: THIS POST MAY BLOW YOUR MIND.  

Another Monday, once again something or another has annoyed MissFitz.

Another set of inappropriate photographs of teenagers everywhere on the web and do you want to know who I blame today? Today, it has to be Courtney Stodden‘s fault.

Actually, do you know what?

When Kendall Jenner did her HUGE INAPPROPRIATE PHOTO SHOOT, everyone freaked the fuck out, and justifiably so, right?

She was only 14 years old, she was wearing very little clothing, she looked too sexy for 14, heavy eye makeup, the near-exposed breasts and the sexual poses of an eighth grader. But let’s be very careful not to exploit any young women in the process of looking at the above pictures… because that would be wrong, right?

Let’s rewind back to 2007, a whole 5 years ago.

Meet a VERY young pair of Kylie and Kendall Jenner, back in 2007. Aren’t they cute and how damn cute are they going to be when they hit the club scene and start sucking carrots on film?

Unfortunately, with a momager like hers, you can’t just stick to normal aspiring teenage model stuff like this…

ignore the fact how she has been made to look like big half sis Kim Krapdashian, this is the type of MODELLING these kids should aspire to excel at…

Anyway – back to the one at fault today in my eyes.

Courtney Stodden.

How is it respectable by the rest of the world that this 17 year old can parade around with her ass cheeks hanging out and her implants flapping in the breeze and her best “I’m getting thrashed by a giant meat stick” face and NO ONE CARES?

Is it becase her mother sold her into slavery by “allowing” her to marry Doug Hutchinson?

Is it because, yeah, even though she is only 17 years old, and has been doing this for a while now, it’s ok, because she is Doug’s property, I mean, wife?

I understand that she wants to do it, I do, and I’d respect that if it weren’t for the fact that she still isn’t legally allowed to make her own decisions, I may also respect it, if it wasn’t that she was half an inch away from turining everyone who looks at her photos into pedophiles, and before you start saying “blah blah blahSHE IS ALMOST EIGHTEEN blah blah”, let me refresh your memory, remember this photo? It was taken a year ago.

courtney was only 16 years old.

Now, really, what does she do all day? Does she have business meetings with her mum where they discuss what activity she could do while wearing a bikini next?

Courtney Stodden, playing volleyball on the beach on her own…

Does she spend time scouring the internet, and making notes of special holidays and their dates so she can be sure to do an appropriately themed photo shoot?

Courtney Stodden shits all over your Easter…

Does she have a support group that she attends for people who are sexually attracted to vegetables?

If you do not believe that she needs to go to a support group for people who think vegetables are sexy, go to Youtube now, and type in COURTNEY STODDEN PETA COMMERCIAL. Yikes.

I don’t think so. I think Courtney spends the majority of her time doing stupid shit. I think she wakes up, puts a bikini on, begs Doug to take her shopping and then twiddles her thumbs and and applies self tan until she comes up with enough words that start with the same letter to make a coherent thought to share with Twitter.

How sweet everyone, LOOK!! It’s Courtney’s mum! And isn’t cute that they are bonding together in the kitchen over blank expressions and fake smiles and soy milk!

Really, it doesn’t get any better than this, unless of course you’re Courtney stodden’s mum, who I haven’t really spoken about a lot here, maybe I should start.

The lady in question’s name is Krista Keller, and she was on board with selling her daughter to marry Doug Hutchinson from the start.

Remember this quote?

“It was a very beautiful, loving, nonsexual type of turn. It was admirable on his end. Then he called me tot ell me they were falling for each other. I could tell my daughter had the kind of love when you want to marry a man or be with a man. Even though she was just 16, I knew it was going to take a pretty big man to handle her because of her sexuality and because of the attention she gets.”

Or, even better… this one?

“The gay community has been so loving to her. I know Anna Nicole Smith had a great rapport with the gay community, and I think they’ve been waiting tohave someone they can connect with, and I think Courtney is that person. She is different and frankly stands out. Frankly, we thought she’d fit better in Hollywood.”

Just in case anyone forgot, Anna Nicole Smith was a woman who dropped out of high school and eventually became a stripper. She married her first husband when she was 17 and she had her first child when she was 18. A few years later she divorced her husband, and a year after that she married a wealthy 89-year-old oil tycoon who she allegedly never lived with and who died a little over a year after their wedding. She worked as a model for Playboy and Guess jeans, she was in a handful of mediocre movies, she was a spokesperson for a dietary supplement, and she had her own reality show. She was known, at least in the later part of her life, for being a little wacky, seemingly from the effect of some sort of substance abuse. In the last few years of her life, she gave birth to a baby girl, dealt with loads of paternity drama, and saw her 20 year old son die from an overdose. In 2007, just a few months after her son’s death, Anna died of an overdose herself.

Thats admirable mummy, comparing your daughter to a woman who had myraid mental issues and substance abuse problems, battled with weight issues for a decade, rode a bunch of old-man-dong and ended up overdosing. Super! Also, all of the gay friends I have, think Courtney is complete and utter weirdo.

Last, here’s another quote from Courtney’s mum about Doug himself

“He’s not creepy. He is such a great guy, he’s so intelligent. I see why they are together, he looks like he’s in his early 30s and Courtney looks like she’s in her late 20s. It’s like they’re talking about someone else when they say bad things about Doug. He’s with my daughter and I wouldn’t want a creepy guy with my daughter. He’s a wonderful, great man. Dough was managing Courtney’s career, but he has so many things coming his way that he just can’t handle it all. It will be better for Courtney with me managing her. I love my daughter, and I’ve been a good parent.”

I suppose good parenting is subjective…

You know what world, I rest my case.

For the Ladies: Skills to Master in a Lifetime

Hi Pouters!

The internet is littered with posts about a lady’s must-haves such as a LITTLE BLACK DRESS THE PERFECT “BOYFRIEND JEANS”, and not to mention MATCHING SILVERWARE!! and while all that is lovely, we know we are not what we own. Right? Right.

So in honour of us being in the new year 2012. Let’s devote some internet space to the important skillz that you (and I) should master.

1. Learn how to make yourself up, and down. There is a makeup, hairstyle and clothing for every day, whether that be no makeup and no hairstyling – there will be a time and place ladies, we must must learn!

2. Learn how to change a plug! Yes, I need to learn this and its on my before-I-die-to-do-list!

3. Satisfy yourself. And your partner. A-hem. Cough. Wink and nudge.

4. Tell a joke to your boss/nephew/BFF/lover…. even the most serious of pouters have an inner giggle deep down inside they are waiting to tell someone, to make them smile and possibly even laugh!

5. Say “no”/change the subject/turn someone down with class. My favorite way to deal with awkward/unwelcome questions is to say, “Oh, you! Now tell me about your [insert new topic here].”

6. Master a signature dish. Mine has to be a Thai Green Curry. I may possibly one day share a receipe with you, but currently its MY  secret.

7. Invest your money. Not only in shoes and makeup, in a way that you will get a large return to buy more shoes and makeup.

8. Travel on a plane with only a carry-on luggage. Yes. For realz. I know you can do it!

9. Do one choreographed dance. The Electric Slide. The Roger Rabbit. The Tango. I’m working on Thriller.

10. Look good in at least one photograph. If you’re getting this wrong, call me for a photo shoot! We will get lots of you looking good!

11. Set up a computer. Yes, REALLY, on your own!

12. Know which direction you’re facing. And if you figure this out, will you teach me?  One of my biggest and hardest challenges was doing an underwater compass swim on one of my many dive courses. To this day, I’m still not 100% sure how I passed that and I still do not know how to use the compass, and goodness if I am driving please do not tell me to travel West or East! My only settings are right and left and even those are sometimes tedious!

13. Make conversation with anybody. Being able to talk to people will get you just about everywhere. When in doubt, ask them questions about themselves, then nod. Seriously, this skill alone can get you through three hours of conversation.

14. Take a compliment. Even if you don’t believe the compliment or you get all full of blushes and stammers, you can just say “Thanks!” or  “Ohhh, you flatterer!”

15. Negotiate. For a raise, for a car, for a house. . Yes, many of us turn inside out at the prospect of asking for a lower price or higher salary, but let’s suck it up and do it anyway. We deserve the best, right?

What skills do you think every woman should master?

Rooney Mara on the Vogue Cover

Rooney Mara, the star of David Fincher’s upcoming Girl with the Dragon Tattoo graces the cover of Vogue November 2011 with a profile of contributing editor Jonathan Van Meter. The magazine will hit stores in the US today, October 25th but the cover story is all available on Vogue’s website.

I am absolutely in love with the image above, I think it is so beautiful. Everything from the makeup and hair to the styling and posing of Mara is absolutely flawless in my eyes, never mind the composition of the shot.

What do you beauties think?
