Likeable Contestant Wins “America’s Next Top Model”

leave a comment »

Sophie

Now there’s a headline I never thought I would type!

In a finale that made me believe that Tyra Banks actually does read her bad press, she not only picked a winner that the fans would like for “America’s Next Top Model: British Invasion,” but she also picked a winner who fits the prize package.  Remember Lisa’s ad for Dream Come True?  I would have believed that photo if Dream Come True was a fortified blush wine sold by the gallon.  It sort of skewed the wrong demographics, didn’t it?

Anyway, Sophie is perfect representative for the ANTM brand.  She’s cute, she’s a good model and she has personality to spare.  I can actually see her getting work!  She might not be the next muse for Christian Dior, but then again she might.  Like Raf Simons and yours truly, Sophie is a Capricorn.  No wonder I adored her throughout the competition.  She’s in my club!

The only thing that would make me happier than to see Sophie succeed is to see Sophie at this summer’s Calgary Stampede.  Calgary is just a hop, skip and jump from the Fortress of Pulchritude where your dear, old Auntie Fashion makes her home.  I’ve already invited Sophie and a friend to meet me so that we can go shopping for cowgirl clothes.  Seriously — who could resist an offer like that?  Kate Middleton couldn’t . . .

Happy birthday, Colin Farrell.  Noooo!  Thirty-five isn’t that old!  It’s no reason to do anything rash . . .

Just What My Wardrobe Was Missing

Fashion rarely excites me anymore.  No one ever has anything new to show me.  But that wasn’t the case at last night’s Cental Saint Martins BA show where I noticed this coat that appears as if it has an extra set of arms wrapped around the waist.  Four arms!

I’ve always dreamed of the day I’d buy my first four-armed coat.  It usually follows the dream where scientists create a way to grow extra arms in a laboratory.  While other women yearn for larger breasts, I’ve always thought that I’d be much more accomplished if I had another set of arms.  Right now, for instance, I could be practicing my banjo while blogging at the same time.  And just think of the other stylish possibilities!  My signature one-arm, one-legged unitard could become my signature three-armed, one-legged unitard — just revealing enough skin to be subtly provocative.  Très chic!

Anyway, while I’m contacting my plastic surgeon to check on the progress of this medical revolution, click the link above to check out the slideshow of the CSM show on the “Vogue UK” site, including Serena Gili’s tribute to plastic tampon applicators.

There’s nothing quite like student fashion shows!

Happy birthday, Melanie Brown.  If the rumors are true, I’m looking forward to seeing you return to “Dancing with the Stars.”  Maks might finally have a fighting chance . . .

Happy birthday, André 3000.  My friend Rusty was once asked to do a commercial for a personal grooming system, too.  He held out for more money, though and Toro never called him back . . .
