fashion redheads 490

Lamar! Get your butt into my office!

What is it THIS time, Boss?

What is the deal with those models out there in today’s fashion show? Their faces are all bright red!

fashion red face combo 340But Boss! Your memo said specifically you wanted redheads, so I replaced the lights in the dressing room mirrors with tanning lamps. I thought it worked out pretty well.

Lamar, you simpleton, I meant they should have red HAIR! If I had known you were this dense I would have worded it more carefully.

I hope there wasn’t anything else in the memo that you didn’t understand. As I recall, I also asked for some models with smoldering eyes…

Yeah. About that, Boss….

heck, I’d be embarrassed wearing those designs.

They look like costumes from ‘The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’

even Guy Pearce would have a tough time looking good in that!

BG, could you maybe give us a shirtless Guy Pearce photo???

“If I had known you were this dense I would have worded it more carefully.”

Ok really, if Lamars boss has not caught on by now I think there needs to be a shift in who has to take responsibility. What was it that Dubbya said? “Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice… uh… fool me twice shame. Err… fool me…? Well the point is ya ain’t gonna fool me again!”

The phrase “ready to wear” always makes me laugh. I have a ready to wear collection. It’s on the radiator dry and waiting to be put away, or on the bed post waiting to be put back on in the morning. It’s not strutting around disguised as origami on the catwalks of Paris.

Oh…and this really gives a new meaning to the song, “Lady in Red” by Chris de Burgh!

“But I hardly know this beauty by my side,I’ll never forget the way you look tonight;I never will forget the way you look tonight…The lady in red, the lady in red,The lady in red, my lady in red”…
