Afro wigs and denim hot pants, spring 2010

The American designer, Marc Jacobs, brought the golden era of the 1980s/90s New Age traveller back to fashion’s forefront in his spring/summer 2010 collection for Louis Vuitton, at the Paris prêt-a-porter season yesterday.

“Street clothes, embracing the hippie-cyber, tribal-punk world,” he said, after a parade of 55 models, wearing giant, multicoloured, Afro wigs, and clad in everything from glitter-anoraks, fringed shirts and satin corsets to jewel-encrusted, denim hot-pants over lace-up leggings.

Talk about some nappy-headed hos!  I always loved those afro styles.  This should be good for the makers of the permanent wave.

    We’ll all have to get us a wig and a satin corset to celebrate the results of the 2010 elections! 🙂


  4. Mel,

    Allahpundit put up a poll for worse Dad Levi Johnston or that Dad from Kate and Jon plus 8?

    I couldn’t pick really it’s a draw.


  5. Mel

    Levi’s an uneducated kid so I vote for the Gosslins. I’ve never seen a minute of that show but they seem like the worst parents ever – self absorbed narcissists.

    Congratulation! Barack Hussein Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize and joins other esteemed world famous winners such as:

    AL GORE (2007)
    SHIRIN EBADI (2003)
    JIMMY CARTER (2002)
    KOFI ANNAN (2001)
    YASSER ARAFAT (1994)

    Not to forget Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa, and the Dalai Lama.

    Musta’ been that beer summit.


  8. I can’t believe it, remember when Imus asked Laura Ingraham if Obama was just like Jimmy Carter. Laura Ingraham said, slap a sweater on him or a “Nobel Peace Prize” there you go Jimmy Carter all over again.

    Too Funny.


  9. Mel

    The voted for him 2 weeks after he won the election! What a sham! I wonder if he’s allowed to keep the money…redistribution of wealth to us slobs out here, right?

    Imus was great this morning!


  10. Mel

    They had to wake him up at 6 am to tell him….likes to sleep late.


  11. Does all corruption in the U.S. and around the world lead back to Islam?

    Islam is the only major religion that has never gone through reformation….

    I guess I will ask my husband to pick me up a burkha while he’s over there, looks like I am going to need one.


  12. Mel

    Glenn Beck is having a field day w/ this story – so funny this morning. He’s won an Oscar for a future film, a grammy for a future CD…only watched Imus so I don’t know – is the mainstream media slobbering about it right now or are they even admitting it’s ridiculous Obama want the Nobel Peace prize after being in office 2 weeks.


  13. bellalu0

    Times On Line has article entitled:

    “”Comment: absurd decision on Obama makes a mockery of the Nobel peace prize””

    They are portraying it as an embarrassment.


  14. bellalu0

    Are we going to go with a burkha or an afro wig as a fashion statement.

    Did you see that burkha outfit somebody was wearing that had Gucci in large letters all down the sleeve?


  15. bellalu0

    The sound is out on my computer. So irritating.


  16. Mel

    I posted it for the girls


  17. Hey if it’s any consolation Alabama #3 is playing Shep Smith’s Ole Miss I expect we will be victorious.

    The Other McCain (Robert Stacy McCain) also has a list of ways to get a million Blog hits in some regards Imus Fans are ahead on a few of the rules. Rule number #4 make some enemies….check.


  18. Mel

    This is the problem..Fox is not much better than the rest of the media.


  19. Mel

    Oh my, I’ve been busy all day but Obama did not turn down the peace prize but is ‘deeply humbled.’ My libby husband said they might as well have given it to Nancy Pelosi, such a joke.

    Savage had a great take:
    “This is unbelievable; no one can believe this. What has he done? Has he discovered a cure for brain cancer I don’t know about?”

    Well, no.

    “Is he moving us towards world peace?” he wonders. “Last I checked Ahmadinejad is speeding along with his bomb. If Obama is an antiwar president, why hasn’t he pulled us out of Afghanistan?”

    Savage’s real ire isn’t directed at Obama, but at the Nobel committee. Like Rush Limbaugh earlier today, he argues that the prize tells us more about the prize givers than it does about Obama. “We all know what the Nobel Prize committee is ever since Yasir Arafat won. It’s a radical leftist front group that hijacked Alfred Nobel’s prize.”

    Nobel created dynamite, and felt really guilty about it, Savage reminds us. But Obama, he says, has moved us toward world peace about as much as British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain did by appeasing the Nazis. “For a brief moment, there was world peace, and then in the blink of an eye it was over.”


  20. This is too funny and it’s coming from Time Magazine ,Photo shopping other possible awards for Obama.,29307,1929504,00.html?xid=rss-topstories
