These are some pictures from a Givenchy fashion show and I gotta say, I really love these very hot outfits… wish I had them. I also hear that last winter the Givenchy brand brought back some of the classic scents from previous decades as “mythical”. The Givenchy “mythical” perfumes were available for a limited time and discontinued at the end of 2007.

Here is also a classic dress from Givenchy, circa 1950’s

and a pic of the classic Givenchy perfume Le De



{June 1, 2008}   Outrageous hair shows

This is one outrageous hair show for sure. This is an Asian show, but I am not sure what country. The stylist is one of the performers and applies that hair magic to first cut his way onto the stage and then use his styling talents on the model’s hair. very entertaining for a hair show and hair modeling. Want to be a model? check out the auditions.



Here is Ford Model Dana Power in a video talking about how important moisturizers are, especially if you do part modeling like she does. I guess you can’t model nail polish with rough, dry, hands.



Behind the scenes of Andrew Christian’s appearance on The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency TV Show, featuring models Dominique Sharpe and Danny Nunez posing by the pool. Janice seems to be all about the underwear models. Actually, the show has many, many episodes of male underwear models at work and at play.



{April 8, 2008}   Clevelands Next Top Model

Here’s a show to give Tyra Banks and the ANTM crew a run for the money. These models are hot and can walk the sidewalk like no other except maybe their coach K. Tanner. Too Funny.

{April 6, 2008}   Kate Moss :: model’s life

Video of Kate Moss on the runway and off of it.



While on the topic of gray haired fashion models (previous post), I gotta add this…. sorry Kristen. This is a 2008 Givenchy fashion show that includes Kristen McMenamy finishing off the line of fashion models strutting down the catwalk. The poor woman slips and falls right at the end and is helped up by another model then they scurry away very quickly… talk about an embarrassing moment.



So here is the youtube video of the final photo shoot from Wed. nights episode of America’s Next Top Model, hosted by Tyra Banks.

I heard rumors that this may in fact be the last season of this show, not sure how accurate that is. I really do like the TV show and it is still at the top of my Reality TV “top shows” list.

The contestants for cycle 10 of ANTM in the above photo shoot are

Aimee, 18, from Spanaway, Washington
Allison , 18, from Waunakee, Wisconsin

Amis , 20, from Bartlesville, Oklahoma
Anya , 18, from Honolulu, Hawaii
Atalya, 18, from Brooklyn, New York
Claire , 24, from New York City, New York
Dominique , 23, from Columbus, Ohio
Fatima , 21, from Boston, Massachusetts
Katarzyna, 22, from Roslyn, New York
Kimberly, 20, from Worcester, Massachusetts
Lauren , 22, from Brooklyn, New York
Marvita, 23, from San Francisco, California
Stacy Ann , 22, from Hialeah, Florida
Whitney , 20, from Atlantic Beach, Florida 

This comes after Tyra’s Top Models got their makeovers a few weeks back. I love the model makeover they do in every cycle. Its great to see the transformations and… of course the hair cut drama from the models. I still gotta say, I  still can’t believe that there was a Top Model who left the show rather than chop the hair some time back… but the hair chopping reminds me of these cute child models below.

Naomi Campbell falling on the runway in Paris from an old David Letterman interview
The interview is from around 1995 and plays footage of what must be, Naomi Campbell’s most embarrassing moments on the fashion runway.

The video shows her wearing a long scarf, tripping on her high heels and falling on her behind. After the runway spill, Naomi just sits there laughing as the crowd whistles and cheers.
