Modelland

Happy birthday, J.K. Rowling.  I suppose you’re wondering why I chose this photo to illustrate a post dedicated to your birthday.  Well, it’s because Tyra Banks‘ “Modelland” sounds a lot like “Harry Potter,” only with models instead of stupid kids.  Now why didn’t you think of that?  No wonder you turned out to be such a failure . . .

Happy birthday, Frank Stallone.  You know, I’m your mother’s biggest fan.  Maybe you could introduce us . . . after you put down that gun.

What is Happening Here?

Vogue

As I was clicking around vogue.com this morning, I came across this puzzling photo that accompanied an article on party dressing.  What in Zob’s name are those models doing with those croquet mallets?  They look as if they’ve decided to smash the wooden box that the mallets came in so that no one else can play with them.  Karen Elson looks as if she’s trying to be sneaky about it, too, tiptoeing quietly so that the box doesn’t run away.  With all apologies to Steven Meisel, it’s a really stupid photo.

Nevertheless, it inspired me to add a new category to my already rich roster of blog categories.  In “What is Happening Here?” I’ll post an editorial or advertising photo that confuses me, and I’ll ask you — my faithful readers — to let me know what’s going on via the comments section.

So, what is happening here?

Isabelle Brasseur and Lloyd Eisler

Happy birthday, Isabelle Brasseur.  It’s uncanny how much this photo resembles the portraits from my third wedding . . .
