Friday Caption Contest: Jean-Paul Gaultier Edition!

French designer Jean-Paul Gaultier throws cherries after Haute Couture retrospective fashion show at Kazansky railway station

Do your best/worst with the cherry-chucking Jean-Paul here in the comment section. If you’re actually interested in what’s going on, this is the way he decided to close his Moscow retrospective show: by walking the catwalk with his “bride” and throwing cherries at the assembled multitudes.

Hump Day Hunk: Owen Wilson

ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG I became so discombobulated by Mariah Carey’s outfit that I forgot it was hump day. So, here’s your hunk, and in a see-through top, no less.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for a man in a nice hat. That shirt, however? And those pants? They have to come off THIS INSTANT!

Rice, Rice, Baby

A model wears Triumph International's Grow-Your-Own-Rice bra in Tokyo

Yes, that is a real bra in which real rice is growing. Triumph, world’s most desperate lingerie manufacturers, are not content to rest on their laurels and watch the competition get all the press. No indeed, they know a photo op when they invent it. I’m not so sure about the bra (after all, how many Asians besides Tila Tequila really need litre-sized cups?) but am indeed intrigued by the idea of a test tube bamboo utility belt. In a few weeks, she’ll have a perfect screen up to the top of her head, very useful when trying to avoid eye contact with random strangers on the street. And not a half-bad way to become poster girl for Greenpeace or something, should that be among her career ambitions.

As my friend Peter says, at least it’s biodegradable. Or is that bio-degrading? She could wear them with these:

As Borat would say, “verrrrry niiiiiiiiice!” The great thing about uniforms is, if they look bad the entire country complains about them until they get fixed; in a way, it’s sort of crowdsourcing design. Yes, there are practical considerations to which one must Iraqiesce. Sure, it may never be as sleek as if Hedi Slimane got his hands on it, but on the plus side, most of the recruits would be able to fit into the uniforms without contracting cosmetic tuberculosis first.

The Kentucky Derby: view from the top

Who wore it better:

Derby Wrapping do not remove under pain of death

I love how her husband is all “I don’t know that woman. I never saw her before in my life.” Apparently she’s from Reno: this must be their idea of a burqa. Wonder if she used to be in Nudes on Ice and has had a religious conversion?

or

She just saved three hundred bucks!

The somewhat lower-rent party girl who’s grinning at the realization she just saved $300 on headgear and as long as it keeps raining, no-one need ever find out.

What Sort of Hat Are You?
What Sort of Hat Are You? I am a Bowler Hat.I am a Bowler Hat.

I’m very proper, often politically correct, precise and dapper. I generally look down on the masses, but I usually try not to let it show.

Saturday Caption Contest Results: JLo and Nubbins edition

After a heated bout of caption competition, we do have a winner on our hands:

Jennifer Lopez and Nubbins the dog attend The Back-up-Plan premiere in Los Angeles

Jeff Says:
April 25th, 2010 at 5:42 pm

Nubbins thinks, “She’s embarrassed? I’m not the one wearing THAT dress.”

Congrats and imaginary swag to our first time winner Jeff. For his virtual trophy, let me present the icy-coolOakley Gascan shades, Ducati Special Edition. Not only are they the hottest brand on two wheels and the highest-quality view on two lenses, but their superfantastic iridium lenses very likely possess the super-power of blocking out overdressed divas!
