Meet Miss Novelty Shop, 2007!

October 9, 2007

Ladies and gentlemen, is she a sport, or what? In the pageant’s tough competition, this young lady fell for every stale novelty we threw at her! The old soot-covered binoculars, the glow-in-the-dark lipstick, even the really cheesy bald wig!

And then, just to show why she deserves this year’s Miss Novelty Shop title more than anyone, check out her realistic look of horror at being “tricked” by this stuff!

Come over here, Miss Novelty Shop, sit on your throne with your special cushion, put on this lapel flower, and open your can of peanut brittle. Hey! Looks like somebody threw up on the carpet! Man, I can’t stop laughing!

Any one who knows John Gailliano knows that he’s a lil extreme when it comes to his work. I personally don’t see how he gets away with it lol. I think a season or two ago he did alot of kilt prints. It was horrifing! ‘Sa La Vi’ thats courture for ya!
