Please don't judge me for posting this but I got a chuckle out of it and thought you may too. Since everyone is talking about celebrity or royal weddings I wanted to contribute to the pile. Last we heard of Barbie and Ken (I know, even typing it hurts me) they split up for good but evidently they not only got back together but now they are hitched and here are the images! Ken used to be blonde though, right?

The images see Ken preparing for his big day much like my brothers Texan wedding in May, only he didn't wear a pink bow-tie like Ken here. The whole series is actually pretty cool if you consider the work it took to make it a modern day hip wedding. Good fun but something tells me I need to have a beer now, or something redeeming.

Take a look at the full series here by french photographer Beatrice. 


This is a good way to start a day off. Bet you didn't expect Alber Elbaz dancing with a selection of models in his fine gear. This fun and awkwardly choreographed video is genius and you should check it out below. This is said to be the work of Steven Meisel who filmed a similar video for Prada this year too.

Behind the Seams: The San Francisco Junior League Fashion Show Luncheon
How does Fab spend a Spring Saturday? By attending fashion shows whenever and wherever I can. When I'm not in New York or LA for my runway fix, I look to my local (beautiful) city of San Francisco for fashion fare. True, there is no groundbreaking trends and top models on the runways, but there are events that benefit good causes and healthy models who actually look like they're having fun. Such was the scene at the Junior League of San Francisco fashion show luncheon. PartySugar and I gobbled down creative salad fixings while we looked on to a high-energy Macy's sponsored runway show.

The theme was American Beauty and there were various segments broken down by trend. There was even a mens and kiddie segment. One of the highlights was actually the preteen show where I felt like a junior higher again, though back then I didn't get to wear Marc by Marc Jacobs. The models were a mix of women who are involved with the fund-raising organization and real models, the husbands of Junior Leaguers and their kids. It was a family affair.

It was also a very well rounded fashion show in that there were looks for women of all ages and shapes — another thing we don't get to see much of on high-fashion runways. Some of my favorite looks were by DKNY, Kensie, and Chaiken (the guest designer who took her walk on the runway despite being in a foot cast), and specifically an L-Space raspberry bikini and a BCBG ivory Grecian gown. The event itself was well produced and the stage, complete with theme-changing giant hanging balls, was wonderful.

Proceeds from the fashion show — including some fabulous auctioned European vacations — all go to JLSF-supported community programs. You know I love me some fashion for a cause!

World Fashion | Top Fashion Model

Top Fashion Model Spotlight: Jessica Stam

This blonde haired blue eyed soon to be 21-year-old Canadian model was discovered at age 16 at a restaurant in Ontario by an agent for International Model Management and later went on to win the Los Angeles Model Look Search. She has quickly become a name you will often hear mentioned by anyone discussing a top ten list of models, which is no surprise when she has had a spectacular start to her modeling career. Stam, which is also the nickname she is known by, lit up her career when she was placed on the cover of German Vogue. Since then she has appeared in ad campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Vera Wang, Atsuro Tayama, Cerruti Jeans, Valentino, Miu Miu, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Holt Renfrew, BCBG, and Banila B. Marc Jacobs has even created a handbag and named it the Stam Bag in her honor.

Stam is a beauty whose face and body can convert to any fashion vice without looking out of place. Despite participation in such high profile ad campaigns, she remains well grounded and certainly not full of herself. This down to earth quality makes her all the more attractive considering that most supermodels attain a diva attitude when they are in such demand.

Stam will continue to strut the runway until her gorgeous piercing blue eyes go out of style. The fact that she lives in New York City (one of the Mecca’s of modeling) and is represented by IMG (who represents a majority of the women and men we call supermodels), I have a feeling she has a long modeling career ahead of her.

Q. I want to wear a man-bag but I feel so awkward. What should I do?
A: The thing about pockets is that they only carry so much without the unwanted saddle bulge. You could just carry your stuff around in your hands, but that doesn't really work either. Now if only there was some way you could hold your stuff, in something, and maybe hang it from your shoulder. I'll let you mull that one over for a sec while I ask what the problem is for a man to carry a bag? Sure you can joke and can call it a man-bag but in the end isn't it just a bag for a man?

In lieu of actual sunshine I have opted for this song which I love and wanted to share. Cape Town in December is incredible and if you have never experienced it you ought to. Not long now... 


Did you ever hear the one about the billion dollar soda company that opened a clothing label? Oh it's not joke. In fact they have been selling gear for almost three years and Pepsi are following suit. Interesting indeed. Headed by Thais Rossiter the clothing started out with 'tacky' prints and T-shirts but has since matured into a more modern look. Their latest campaign features Brazilian favorite Marlon Teixeira and was photographed by Jacques Dequeker. Styling by Eduardo Kottmann and Gabriela Telle.Would you wear your favorite refreshment?


More collegiate inspired campaigns. This time H&aM bring you denim, tee's and the increasingly popular varsity jacket in their fall/winter 2011/12 collection featuring Simon Nessman. With all these plans to bring in Zara (November 10 2011) and Topshop we can only hope it won't be too long before H&M opens on our shores. I think of out of the three it has the greatest chances of doing well as it reaches a wider market. 2012? Let's hold thumbs.
