Filthy Glam Fashion Show – 40 Photos!

12 Aug

I was on the scene on behalf of Buzzine the other night at the Fred Segal Store in Santa Monica for the unveiling of the Nude Collection by Lyric Culture’s Hanna Rochelle Schmieder. As fan of fashion and rock’n roll, it was the perfect fit for me (though I may have to lose a few lb’s to wear *those* clothes!), so I took a million more pictures than Buzzine will ever publish. The logo tees and tights feature prose and snippets from classic rock songs of the 60s, 70s and 80s (via special arrangement with the artists, so they can cash in too).

I’m posting many of the images here (some by me, some by Enzo) plus a video of the wet’n wild grand finale by the band Semi Precious Weapons. Singer Justin Tranter was there to perform, but also to show off his Fetty (F’n Pretty) jewelry collection (fun fact: Tranter’s mom is a custom engagement ring designer) and to unveil Lyric Culture’s first foray into modern-day bandom with a limited edition SPW “Sticky” (With Champagne).

The unseasonably chilly August evening began with some red (OK, champagne-colored) carpet shenanigans from special guests and the band.

SPW is a band from New York City (not unlike The New York Dolls, come to think of it) consisting of Justin Tranter on vocals, Stevy Pyne on guitar, Cole Whittle on bass and Dan Crean on drums. They have two excellent dancers and all-around cheerleader party-gals who perform with them onstage, but for the life of me I could not find their names anywhere online. If you know, drop a comment — they deserve recognition, too. (I’ve posted a few pics of them here, but if you want to see the naughty bits, you have to go my personal CONCERTS photo album at Picasa.)

Just the boys. (The guy to the far left of the screen looks so much like Kato Kaelin, doesn’t he?!)

Model Falls on the Runway & Semi Precious Weapons Fully Cocked

11 Aug

What are the odds? I’d post a blog about spectacular catwalk calamities, and then crash! bam! boom! a model falls on the runway right in front of me. It happened last night at a fashion show for Lyric Culture’s Nude collection in Santa Monica at the Fred Segal on 5th. The photos (by Enzo Giobbe) illustrate the diva’s dive and recovery, then a few follow-up images (by me) show how rock’n roll glam saved the day.

Newsflash: Fresh paint and high heels don’t mix.

Don’t worry, folks at home. She’s gonna be OhhhKayyy.

From the “Fall” Collection – How To Succeed In High Heels Without Really Trying

8 Jul

I swear I had his blog planned out *before* the video from Paris Fashion Week broke (fortunately this leggy lady didn’t break her ankle) but I will admit I was dragging my feet. Now that it’s timely here I am, jumping in.

Staci Layne’s 10 Tips for Walking in High Heels

I’ve been known to take a shaky step (and someone is ALWAYS there to notice, and comment), but the only times I’ve really slipped are in shoes that are relatively low… I think it has more to do with the surface that’s being walked upon (I firmly believe all slick super-market flooring, cobbled alleys, and walkways with numerous grates are designed by men). I had this one pair of cowboy boots years ago that I finally had to retire, because every single time I walked in them it was like putting on Cinderella’s glass SLIPper. Plus, I always seem to be wearing my highest, narrowest shoes when unexpected walking happens (can’t find car in lot, parked too far away, somebody else’s idea to walk to the restaurant instead of drive…).

But Wait… There’s More!
