OMG PRADA no one ever expected to hear me exclaim.

Okay, so High End Fashion is sort of a conundrum for me. I generally dislike almost anything made for women by the big labels, because as a woman of *ahem* some size (I’m a size 18/20/22 depending on what jeans I am wearing) nothing is ever made for me.

But MENSWEAR… OH THE MENSWEAR. I get my little heart into a tizzy over menswear.

Because it’s something I could conceivably wear, and do wear, generally, and  no heels required! no one thinks twice about you wearing men’s shoes when you are also wearing a tuxedo. I am a super-chunky Goodwill-junky and YOU GET THE BEST CHEESY SUITS WHEN YOU’RE AT GOODWILL. It’s a win!

So, imagine my surprise when I was flipping through Vanity Fair and it’s skinny model in CHANEL, skinny model in BURBERRY, skinny model for GUCCI BAGS, and then GARY OLDMAN.

I thought it was a Movie thing, but then I saw PRADA at the bottom, and remembered he and a bunch of other actors were in the premiere fashion show for Prada’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection. I flipped through the rest of the spread and there’s Willem Dafoe, Blue-Steeling the SHIT OUT OF IT, seriously, look:

(Photos turned out to take up too much room, so they’re below the fold.)

Blue Steel!

Blue Steel

Blue Steel

OMG BLUE STEEL

WILLEM DAFOE WINS AT BLUE STEEL.

Well, I was flipping through, and I came across the footage from the talent runway show. It is amusing to say the least:

1:06 Wtf, do I have a pop up? One of those noisy sidebar ads? Wait, THAT WAS THE MUSIC?

1:17 Two completely dfferent styles of music, two completely different tempos…

1:42 Bad angle, or did he turn too early?

2:10 Viva la Revolucion? VIVA LA SOVIET REVOLUCION!!!

2:33 Gestapo! Digging the early Cold War vibes.

3:02 Those burgundy pants with the grey striped coat… KILLING ME SOFTLY.

3:40 “You vill lead us to see Grail, Doctor Jones!”

3:56 Yes it’s mean but…. Nosferatu. And now you see it too.

4:05 ARGH THOSE GLASSES!!! They are flattering for NO ONE. All it does is make it look like you have a unibrow!

4:17 BLUE STEEL with handlebar mustache!

4:26 The music becomes even more inexplicable…

6:13 Garret Hedlund… Sexy and he knows it.

6:24 He’s all “Seriously?”

6:33 THIS JACKET IS UGLY SO I AM GOING TO WALK AS FAST AS I CAN

6:46 THEY LOST MY PANTS BUT I AM A PROFESSIONAL SO THE SHOW MUST GO ON

7:26 they told me to walk so I’m walking… walking…. strolling to the store… just walking…

7:36 EMILE HIRSCH IS PLEADING FOR HELP WITH HIS EYES

7:47 Tim Roth again curses is really short legs…

7:59 Willem Dafoe owns everyone in the show. He’s daring anyone to ask why he’s wearing two jackets.

8:15 Adrian Brody…. Like a bawss.

8:22 “Pause, pose… yeah… Gangsta.”

8:32 Gary Oldman has somewhere more important to be, assholes.

8:58 What the fuuuu- VEER LEFT VEER LEFT!

And the designer’s all like “Hello! Goodbye!”

 

Like I said, thoroughly entertaining.
