Courtney Stodden for PETA

Courtney Stodden for PETA. She’s so anti animal abuse she’s almost post-biological herself!

Is this where they get the term “Wedge Salad?”

Congratulations to Cate!

Cate Blanchett debuts her air baby bump

Cate Blanchett debuts her air baby bump

Congratulations to actress, icon, and mother Cate Blanchett, who recently debuted her air baby bump in this stunning Balenciaga two-piece. We didn’t even know she was a Scientologist!

In all seriousness, this is both lovely and insane, so it’s perfect for her.

Friday Caption Contest: Joanna Lumley Edition

You know what to do. Do it in the comments section for fabulous, entirely imaginary prizes. Yes, I SAID DO IT! Even if I have to spend another three hours trying to wade through the spam file until this gets fixed.

Happy Maybe-End-To-Spinsterhood, Jennifer Aniston!

Jennifer Aniston wore a white dress maybe

For your second wedding, shouldn’t you wear off white?

Possibly and conditional congratulations to Our Lady of the Headlights, Jennifer Aniston. According to a pretty solid rumour posted over on Celebitchy, she got married to the very attractive and I’m sure quite well known Whatsisname that she’s been dating since, you know, the one before. Clever girl, (allegedly) doing it while everyone was distracted with the Royal Baby, Carlos Danger, and the fact that I was on vacation! Oh well, a gossip artiste’s work is never done.

We at Ayyyy.com adore weddings, and haven’t been to one in far too long. For the rumoured to be bridal couple we will hypothetically present this magnificent, and entirely virtual, 2 gallon light-up Margarita fountain!

That takes care of the bride; the rest of you will have to get your own drinks!

Sock it to me!

It seems to be Vintage week chez Ayyyy, and that’s all right with me. The music was better. The movies were better. The television commercials were, like, so way better. And this is one of them.

If your husband, brother, father or son has ever known the utter mortification of having flashed a shiny shin, perhaps in a job interview, perhaps in an important meeting. Well, tell your XY that the solution has been found! In 1966!

Not only that, but these very socks are still available, and apparently still selling well. Never suffer the indignity of an inadvertent shin flash again!

Marilyn Makeover!

Marilyn Monroe had her secrets

Ever wanted to look like that? Sure, suuuuuure you haven’t. Wasn’t it Helena Rubenstein (hint: it was) who said, “There are no ugly women, just lazy ones?” So here, should you wish to take two solid hours to see how much you can look like Marilyn, is a tutorial on how to do exactly that, complete with some fascinating insights I’ve never seen anywhere else.

Happy Birthday to Moi: Here’s my present to you

Hump days are always hard, even when they’re your birthday. I’m celebrating what they call a Milestone (in lieu of saying, “Wow, did you know Edison?”) and feeling a little vintage myself, particularly in rainy weather. For that reason, we’re going All-Vintage this week at Ayyyy, and today we have a truly special post. No ragged, spouse-swapping, morning-after celebrities on this blog! Here’s something to give your eyes and spirit a little lift, coming to you direct from Valentina and the year 1930.

Valentina Dress from OMG that Dress

I’m not normally all about the sleek for myself, but this is elegance itself. It would look equally good on Carole Lombard and Jean Harlow. This is a dress that lets the woman (and the body) do the talking.

If you prefer something more ornamented, not to worry. We’ve got you covered: in Galliano! The Little Fashion Troll was recently interviewed in Vanity Fair and his mea culpa was actually moving and profound. Clearly it’s in his best business interests to apologize, but it seems to me that he has had an epiphany, an opportunity to examine himself in a way that few men ever do, and that he has not shied away from it but come out a better person. Time will tell if he will be welcomed back, but Anna is a fan, and what Anna wants, Anna gets.

tl;dr, here’s Stella Tennant looking the most feminine she ever did in her life, in Galliano for Christian Dior Haute Couture 2005.

Fashion in the Future! According to the Past!

This, my friends, is priceless. Via Weird Vintage, one of my favorite Tumblrs, I’ve found this glorious video from 1939 describing what fashion will be like in the Year 2000. Surprisingly, it’s not all that far off: we have silver in our sportswear (to cut the smell), convertible dresses and pants, see-through tops, bizarre ballgowns, and pretty much everything else they showed here except really, really snazzy hats. the shoes, in fact, are pretty much bang-on.

To be honest, I’m kind of glad that it wasn’t as accurate about men’s fashion. That is a Ming the Merciless as Playground Perv costume if ever I saw one.
