Smells like ratatouille, Louie!

December 6, 2007

Blog Guy, you know how you’re always making fun of extreme fashions? I’ll bet those designers are furious – you’d better watch your back!

Well, I did hear from Daria Kostenko, who designed those outfits where models wore garlic in their hair, after I posted Hit me with the stench, wench! Turns out she either has a good sense of humor, or else she doesn’t know any lawyers,  because she liked the blog. Kostenko mentioned other designers like McQueen  and Galliano, who are no strangers here. 

But in the end, I was sorry I exchanged e-mails with her, because she told me  her garlic was just paper, not real. Any notion I had of stinky models parading down the runway as blazing spotlights sizzled garlic in their hair was just my own imagination.

Maybe if I wear garlic on my head, no one will notice what a horrible job I did with my mascara…

Yes, Miss. Please show the Court all of the places where the defendant tuched you with her garlic. Thank you.
