News, but not the serious kind

I think she wrote her own vows, too…

Blog Guy, I’m getting married next Saturday, and I could use some advice in choosing my bridal gown.

fashion bride face 240Sure. Congratulations on the happy event! In selecting your gown, you should think about what message you want to send to your gathered loved ones, because that’s what the perfect wedding dress does.

You know, something like “I’m so happy to be joining my beloved soul mate on this life journey…”

But put it in your own words, of course. What’s the message YOU want to send?

Now, fashion news from Neptune!

Blog Guy, please  help settle an argument I’m having with my girlfriend. Do they have fashion shows on the planet Neptune?

Twice the shame, twice the idiocy…

As a blogger who watches stupid fashions all over the world, I’ve always been happy about one thing. No matter how dumb an outfit is, I only have to see it once.

Until this week, that is. Spotting the outfit on the left, from New York, I set it aside to think of a way to express my contempt. Four days later I’m looking at photos from Madrid, and THERE IT IS AGAIN!

I’m sporty and sexy and what else?

Blog Guy, I was intrigued by your post about models having to get “instructions” before fashion shows. Were you able to learn anything more about what they were being told?

No, but I have learned more about how important it is to motivate folks just before a big event.

It hurts so bad! Too much to think about!

Somebody needs to help me out with this one. We have TWO photos purporting to show fashion models “listening to instructions” before presenting creations at a fashion show.

HUH?

I can buy a team of surgeons getting final instructions before creating the Six Million Dollar Man, but what kind of instructions do models need to hear?

Blog Guy, am I missing something? It’s the middle of February, and you haven’t posted any new Victoria’s Secret photos. Just warmed-over stuff from 2009. What’s up?

Five people I don’t want to meet…

Readers often say to me, “Bob, in your line of work you must meet lots of interesting people,” and I say to them, “No, not really.”

In fact, I tend to keep an up-to-date list of folks I DON’T want to meet, under any circumstances. It changes often, but right now these are the LAST five people on earth I want to see.
