The Virgins - "Week of Danger"

Because you really can't have enough of them.

The Virgins - "Love Is Colder Than Death"

My favorite song by The Virgins, now making me really regret not seeing them live, for free, when they came to my school a few weeks ago. D'oh!

Fran Kranz + Funny Faces = Freaking Cute

Fran Kranz is now on "Dollhouse" with Eliza Dushku, but these caps from some short-lived CBS show are really attractive. Even with his tendency to make funny faces. :)

Mary Katrantzou - London Fashion Week

Mary Katrantzou's big debut at London Fashion Week was full of buzz. Her perfume bottle prints were stunning and fresh, which is big praise in London, where every other young designer sees themselves as the next Johnathan Saunders. Can't wait to see more from her.

Thanks to a nearly 4x increase in traffic in response to that Johnny Weir post, I'm gonna try something a little different. And this is a very good kind of different. Sorry for being such a skank. :)

Pontiac Stinger = An Ugly Place to Hoard Shit

A colorful place to cram useless shit" is the best way to describe this modern marvel concept car from 1989! Who knows, maybe it'll come back, day-glo green is unfortunately infiltrating mainstream society again as we speak.

Christopher Kane Fall 2009

fashionologie has the scoop on the new Christopher Kane show. Kane is easily one of the top three designers in London right now, along with Giles Deacon and...a third, rotating member (Louise Goldin maybe?). This show is faaaaar better than his crack-whack Planet of the Apes meets The Flintstones collection from last season.

It's Fashion Week!

New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and there are a few designers you definitely need to look for. Altuzarra, Hester, and Cushnie et Ochs are getting the biggest buzz, while Bibhu Mohapatra (styled by Lauren Santo Domingo) and Hutson (from the duo behind Obedient Sons & Daughters) are also on my radar. Ohne Titel and Yigal Azrouël (who had Ashley Dupre in the front row, totally unbeknownst to him) are finally coming into their own, but neither has hit the big-time quite like Anna Wintour fave Alexander Wang. More to come!

The Stranger Eats at Denny's

Morning in America - Restaurants - The Stranger, Seattle's Only Newspaper: "The Great Grand-Slam Giveaway may not have hit its target market—the would-be Applebee's customer, tightening the proverbial if not the actual belt—but it created exorbitant goodwill among high schoolers, stoners, and the homeless (and, probably especially, combinations thereof)."

A perfect description of all that was the free Denny's breakfast.

Michelle Obama + Vogue = Best. Cover. EVER.

EDIT: Cover leaked!!!

The pictures haven't leaked yet, but the Washington Post has finally confirmed that Michelle Obama will indeed be on the grand March issue of Vogue, as just about everybody had predicted. She wears Jason Wu on the cover (of course) and Narciso Rodriguez in side (no surprise there) and was shot by Annie Leibovitz (naturally). Andre Leon Talley wrote the article (though who really reads anything he writes?). Can't freaking wait for the photos to leak.

Because we all need to think about the models in this recession...

Gabriel Chytry is gorgeous. He just is. And somebody should do something to take advantage of that. Like booking him for a modeling gig. You have my blessing.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona = Gorgeous

Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Woody Allen's latest Scarlett Johansson showcase, is definitely worth watching, especially now in the doldrums of winter. The lens is sensuously washed in seductive shades of saffron, reflecting the delicious golden haze of the Spanish summer sun. This works only to enhance the undeniable beauty of Pénelope Cruz, so sultry and sumptuous, despite her role as a woman constantly on the verge of meltdown. Sonia Grande's costumes sing of chic summer ease, featherweight and flowing against the body with every breeze, invoking envy in anyone stuck in Midwestern winter hell. Allen, in highlighting Barcelona's typical but still stunning Gaudí and Miró, as well as the quieter beauty of the countryside and other overlooked sites, has found a new city to which he can write a love song. Everything about the film made me yearn for a vacation. Damn you, Woody Allen. Damn you.
