Happy Valentine’s Day from Ayyyy and the Superfabulous Johnny Weir

Oh, Johnny, it’s too bad we never hung out when you were in Vangroover, because we would have had a fabulous time! I can’t resist a passive-aggressive activist (just ask Julian Assange) and it doesn’t get better than Johnny “No, I Won’t Say A Word About Gay Rights at Sochi” Weir. Some men know how to send a message without making any noise at all.

So far the world’s brassiest figure skater has treated us to a solid week of accelerating levels of superfabulousness, culminating in a sequined ensemble which practically bitchslaps the director and demands a Bob Fosse solo. Poor Tara Lipinsky; she is very much the dowdy, butt-bowed bridesmaid at this party, despite that stunning braid.

Johnny is, of course, married to a Russian, and is known formally as John Garvin Weir-Voronov. He and his husband Victor have been married since 2011.

What’s not to love about everyone’s favorite gamer geek/unlikely action hero celebrating the fact that Riddick , his latest cinematic classic, is #1 in DVD sales.

As I’ve said elsewhere, how can you not love this guy? It’s like a cross between beefcake bodybuilding eye candy and a dancing chipmunk. If you want seven plus minutes of this fackery, here ya go. Don’t say I never did nuthin for ya.

You know what to do; do it in the comments for fabulous, completely imaginary prizes.

Who’s That Girl? Marcia, Marcia, Marcia edition

was it Marcia or Marsha? THESE ARE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS

was it Marcia or Marsha? THESE ARE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS

Truth be told, in the early 70′s EVERYONE looked like that, or wanted to. I can still feel the scratchy polyester poorboy sweater (shudders). Click over the jump to see who this toothy kid turned into. And if you put a caption in for the Caption Contest, be patient for one more day. We’re still fishing them out of the Spam filter while recovering from the flu, so it could be a day or so before we give Clay Aiken his due.

Who’s That Girl: Harper’s Bazaar Edition

Dakota Fanning in Harper's Bazaar

How quickly they grow up, eh? This, my friends, is not a photoshopped-to-hell-as-usual Julianne Moore. Nor is it a vintage portrait of Helena Bonham Carter as a young Faerie Kin. It is, in fact, the all-growed-up Dakota Fanning, looking quite astonishingly beautiful in Harper’s Bazaar. The hair, the poise, the makeup, the shape, the colours; I love everything about this except the flammable-looking fur trim. One might (and one does) quibble about some of the other Bazaar Beauties in the series, but this photo is indeed a document of iconic beauty.

It is, yes, the superfantastic!

Congratulations to Cate!

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.

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.

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.
