lifts and separates: whoranging for vintage lingerie


admittedly, i prefer "vintage-styled lingerie" over "vintage lingerie."  something about wearing another person's bullet bra really takes the sex out of sexy.

from push-ups to corsets, there are lots of modern and craveable vintage-styled under-frocks that give you a fab curve or flatten without the torturous belts and brutal boning of yesteryear.

below is a luscious little ad from the 1950s for felina's girdle.  very haute.  makes the spanx look super snoozy.

shades of whorange: the orange leica


this special edition, orange Leica M7 camera has no idea how much it needs me.

unfortunately it's sold exclusively at hermes, which is about as doable for me as having it retail on mars.

whoranging at the MOCA with lady gaga & francesco vezzoli


at MOCA's 30th anniversary party last weekend, video artist francesco vezzoli constructed a five-minute production number called "ballets russes italian style (the shortest musical you will never see again)."

cravings ensued...

lady gaga played a nipple-pink, butterfly tattooed, steinway grand piano painted by damien hirst (which was later auctioned off for $450,000)....


and wore a glorious hat designed by architect frank gehry.  film director baz luhrmann and his wife, catherine martin, created the masks.  but, the whoranging didn't end there...

Lady Gaga at MOCA with Bolshoi dancers

the bolshoi ballet performed in custom costumes crafted by prada.

in other words...just another typical night at the museum.

girls on film: elevator girls by miwa yanagi






in 1993, elevators girls began as a performance piece by japan-based artist, miwa yanagi.  inspired by real-life elevator girls, whose job it is to greet customers inside of department stores, yanagi posed uniformed models inside of store settings and mock elevators.  the models repeatedly performed ritualized elevator girl monologues and gestures.  the settings were architectural, futuristic, striking, and occasionally frightening.

regarding her work, the artist says, "the elevator girls series was about myself as well as other japanese women. when i started, i was working as a teacher after graduating from university. back then, i strongly felt that i was just playing a role in a standardized society, having a particular occupation in a particular setting. i did not work as an elevator girl literally, but the idea resonated in me in a symbolic way."

in the meantime, enjoy the ride.  next floor --fabulous.

united we stand for united nude




a wise drag queen once told me, "it doesn't matter if you fall down while wearing fashionably high heels, because you'll look fabulous while doing it."

to that i add, "and if the name of your shoe is 'united nude,' you're practically bulletproof."

therefore, get high heeled this weekend, darlings.  after all, united we stand, divided we fall (fabulously).

{united nude footwear can be worshiped here.  via the scoop.}
