PARIS FASHION WEEK: JAPANESE FASHION RULES

Paris Fashion Week further illustrated the inevitable evolution from fancy haute couture to athletic inspired streetwear. We cannot resist Japanese fashion and Sacai is one of our select few fantasy designers. (We fanaticize about buying some) Sacai incorporates many of our favorite things: plaid, military inspiration, and asymmetry, plus there is a functional element. If we could splurge on anything from the Spring 2019 collection, it would be this.

JOHNNY DEPP’S PHILOSOPHY: ”ENJOY THE RIDE WHILE YOU’RE ON IT!”

Johnny Depp arrived in Japan to promote his new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, but you’d never guess it by his attire. He’s in full-on rock n’ roll mode and appears far more interested in a career as a musician than an actor. Japanese fans don’t care which Johnny they get – they just want more of him.

THE GOTHBURGER: HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVES

Marilyn Manson is going to love this. Burger King in Japan apparently has much more of a sense of humor than they do here. They are introducing what looks like a “Goth Burger “ in which the ingredients are colored black with squid ink. There’s a plain version for hardcore Goths, and one with “the works.” Hamburger competition in Japan must be fierce. We came upon the information at one of our favorite websites, Dangerous Minds, and felt compelled to pass it on to you.

JAPAN LOVES TOM CRUISE, NO MATTER WHAT

AG037210_01tomcut

“Edge of Tomorrow” may have fizzled in the USA, but Japanese fans are still crazy for Tom Cruise. He’s promoting the movie, and seemed very touched by the warm reception he got there. Tom DOES look a little different. His smile isn’t as flashy, his face is a bit rounder and his hair isn’t so black. He actually looks more like a normal person than a superhero movie star.

THIS BARE BOTTOM FASHION ILLUSION FROM JAPAN COULD CAUSE A TRAFFIC PILE-UP!

Japan has SOME sense of humor. Supposedly, these are not girls with their underwear showing- they are prints on the skirts that make it LOOK like panties are visible! Is it possible this is all an optical illusion? It’s claimed that no skin or underpants are really showing, but it is very startling. Trick photography notwithstanding, this could definitely become a hazard to ogling drivers. We wonder who would be the first to sport this look in Hollywood? Child bride Courtney Stodden perhaps?

LADY GAGA ATTEMPTS TO WIN OVER THE JAPANESE BY LOOKING LIKE A PANDA

Lady Gaga wants to be liked in Japan so naturally she made herself up to look like A PANDA for a talk show there. She was drumming up excitement for a tour she might be planning in Japan. She also hotly denied pocketing money from sales of her “Pray for Japan” charity wristbands. Gaga insists that all proceeds go to help earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan.

JAPAN LOVES TO SIP TEA WITH MEG RYAN

Meg Ryan was one of the most popular American actresses in Japan a few years ago, and she did lucrative tea commercials for TV. Recently she got another offer she couldn’t refuse – two million dollars for two days of work filming more tea ads. Advertisers roll out the red carpet and besides a first class hotel and all the frills they offered her a spa vacation along with her boyfriend John Mellencamp.

LADY GAGA IN DRAG LOOKS LIKE A 50’S GREASER

What could me more fun than drag kings? We found photos of drag king groups from the forties and very recently. Of course our current favorite drag king is Lady Gaga, who transformed herself into a petite but believable male for Japan Hommes Vogue. Gaga is hoping to perpetuate that rumor that she was born a man.

JAPAN TAKES THE MOHAWK TO THE NEXT DIMENSION

Our whimsical colleague, Stephen Saban has done it again. He discovered another distinctive video for The WOW Report. This is one of the reasons we love the Japanese sensibility. They made this TV commercial unforgettable simply by taking the mohawk one step beyond…

Now HERE’S a personal mobility device that has potential! We’ve always thought the Segway was too big and clunky to ever be practical. Plus you have to stand up! Honda has developed this “electric unicycle” using technology developed through robotics research and it moves easily in all directions, just by leaning. It will be introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan on October 24. We do kinda wish that General Motors had come up with this.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
