When pensive gets expensive…

fashion one foot combo 490

Okay Lamar, the big day has arrived! For once, we’re spending some real money on supermodels for our fashion show, and you’ll see what a difference quality can make.

Now, did you teach them the subtle moves I asked for?

victoria kiss combo 340You bet, Boss. Two of them have mastered the intricate “Stand on one stiletto, lift the other foot and smile” maneuver.

Bravo, Lamar! That may be the most complex move in the business! Perfecto!

Now, how about the next one, blowing endless air kisses while making each one look fresh, sincere and spontaneous?

Got it, boss. Look at her! The great ones make it seem so effortless.

They sure do, Boss. These chicks are…

Lamar! What’s up with that one? My God, what’s going on? She looks worried!

Gee Boss, I just told her Lagos is the largest city in sub-Saharan Africa, with more than eight million people and serious waste management issues…

Come here Lamar, and bring me one of those stilettos….

You lift your right foot up,
You blow an air kiss out,
You put your right foot down
and then you turn yourself about.
You do the hokey pokey
with the runway strut
and that’s what it’s all about!

Flamingo Prancers…

You know I always thought that models were never real human beings, but were in fact a model of one – hence the name.
When I look at these photos, for some reason the word ‘vacuous’ springs readily to mind.
Yes, I’m, grouchy today. Sustained a leg injury yesterday and need urgent doughnut and coffee infusion.

I see 2 pairs of shoessssss!!!
One, you have me in stitches all the time!!
Nosmo, a doughnut a day keeps the grouchiness away!!!

Oh and btw, what exactly is a secret swim collection? All the swimwear is secret????

Oh, and I can see the ribs of that second model from the side angle… jeez!!!
When will they learn to eat!! (writing this while gobbling down my 2nd chicken tikka lattice… to be followed by a sugar glazed chocolate doughnut… yummm!)

What, no Kate Middleton? The wedding is four weeks from today!

Anyway, cute pictures. I always like the models smiling. And I like how Paris knew where to stand to get the foot light to shine right up her … shoe. :)

OOOWWW! My head hurts from all the info-overload about Lagos. Shra, is Mr B allowed to do that?

Putting a Paris Hilton pic next to a VS model pic is like parking a Pinto next to a Ferrari.

models do the flamingo
prance in their high heels

@ifly – I was thinking more like a Matador, but Pinto works too.

@Nosmo: Poor baby ~ extra doughnuts and be careful of the leg. Hey! Maybe you can do the model pose, standing on your good leg!

I think it’s time to prepare the Wine-A-Bago for an OE roadtrip to the wedding. BG…how many guests does your invitation say you can bring? http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/20 11/03/01/merlot-on-the-go/

I think the leg-up pose is entirely inappropriate. I’m thinking maybe posed on all fours . . . and posed with an empty energy drink left on the lower back by someone. . . .

HEY! Why is Cam’s sister next to the pink lawn ornament?

Damn you, Ladylala! So now I have to pay for my vast knowledge of Nigeria? I came by it honestly enough, helping a prince get $40 million out of the country.

Paris Hilton impresses me. How does someone with that much money manage to look so cheap?

[…] Lamar, we’re back to doing our fashion shows on the cheap, since we blew all that money on supermodels last […]
