Fun for all the Family could be true


In the past two posts, I have delved into territory that usually, I would avoid. "Fun-for-all-the-Family" entertainment in the form of Harry Potter and The Simpsons just isn't very cool. Well, Harpers Bazaar* have quite possibly changed my mind.. The fashion magazine has injected some genius humour into their stuffy pages. How funny are Velma and whatshername, chainsmoking under Viktor and Rolf's controversial lighting dresses?

I would have expected something as genius as this to have come from POP!, but Harpers Bazaar?* Getting Groening to etch your editorial is one smart move, and even more so when there is The Simpsons movie to market to the fashion crowd.
So what happens when the 1st (yellow) take a trip to Paris with, you guessed it, Linda Evangelista as their tourguide? Dude, I had Liya Kebede showing me the sights of Bilbao.. Yes it gets better... run ins with Karl, dress up with Donatella and runwy prep with Viktor and Rolf. Jealous, me?

Is COOL still cool?

The KEDS campaigns still seem to be going strong. As much as I like them, I still haven't been convinced that the granny daps are something that I would want to be seen in..
But as cheesy as they are, I'm still a sucker for a bit of "Cool Is..." even if the phrase may have been overplayed a little now? How many seasons worth of these campaigns has I flipped through in Teen Vogue, I wonder? Thoughts? Bored or Brilliant?

Short But Sweet

MK looked as teeny and fabulous as ever when she turned up to the Weeds press conference. Not sure who she is wearing, but I'm sniffing a bit of vintage? She's always fantastic at accessorising too, in my opinion. Steering away from the mathcy-matchy ala Paris.

Not at all believing those rumours of Sibling Rivalry that I read in Grazia last week? Apparently Ashley disaproves of MK's relationship with Max Snow (who by the bay is Uma Thurman's cousin!)

I say what.everrrrr.

*Thanks Mrs Fashion for the correction. The Simpsons ed is in Harpers Bazaar, not Tatler as I said. I always get these two posh ladyyy glossies mixed up! Personally I never read them myself, so thats probably why!...
