Okay. Let's just lay it all out on the table right now.

I cried.

Just a little. But I did.

If you know me at all, you know that my love for Elton runs deep. From a very young age I loved Elton's costumes (particularly the Donald Duck), his flamboyancy, and his voice and starting a year and a half ago, I fell in love with Gaga for all of the same reasons. I would say more but to be honest, I'm speechless (oh yea, I went there.)

### JOHN HAMM HOSTS SNL

John Hamm did his best to appear unsexy on SNL last night, but he did not succeed. Wearing a teensie tiny pair of jean shorts and pretending to be a homosexual construction worker isn't going to deter me! My favorite skit is featured below and had me laughing my head off. And even though he had a half pony tail, mafioso necklaces, and was covered in placenta..he was shirtless with suspenders and skinny black studded jeans. Nice try John Hamm!

SERGIO!

### THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES

When I was just a wee little lady, I was obsessed with my “Day of the Week” underwear. I have no idea who purchased these for me, although I have a slight hunch it was my mother, but these particular underpants made getting ready a lot more exciting. God forbid I put on the wrong pair of underwear, the rest of the week would be all messed up. It’s a lot of pressure for underpants, but I have never been one to carelessly throw on undergarments. These things take time, skill, and coordination, and that is a lesson I learned from a very young age.

Around that same time, my family and I went on a trip to Bermuda. For one reason or another, all of our clothes were soaking wet so my mom laid them out on the balcony to dry. A few hours later we went out onto the patio to retrieve our goods when we realized something had gone missing. Monday… Tuesday… Wednesday… Thursday…..Oh. My. God. Where the hell were my Friday undies?

It’s been approximately 18 years since the incident, but if you mumble the words “Friday undies” to my family, they will all start laughing. Sadly, I believe the Wednesday undies were also a casualty on that vacation as a result of a balcony to balcony toss between me and my brother. All of this came back to me when I saw that Stella McCartney came out with “Day of the Week” underwear. Designer underwear, that is animal friendly, over priced, and is OCD enough to be labeled with the day of the week? Um, I’ll take 7 please.

### GIVENCHY COUTURE SPRING 2010

As I flipped through the Givenchy Couture Spring 10 collection, I could not get the song "Dancing Queen" out of my head. Maybe it's because I just saw my friend Rachel perform in Mama Mia a few weekends back, or maybe it's because the the fashion world seems to granted my wish and it is raining disco queens. I love me some sparkle and considering my favorite fashion icons are Huston, Jagger, and Von Furstenberg, you can only imagine how much I love the 70's.

Head designer Riccardo Tisci is in his fifth year at the famed fashion house, Givenchy, and it is obvious that he has been feeling more at home. The last few Givenchy collections have turned the fashion world on it's head and now it seems like he's going to do the same with couture. The collection, which begins with structured tuxedo jackets layered over bundles of ostrich feathers, gracefully progresses into over sized ruffles and tiers of lace. Tisci's balance of feminine and masculine is impeccable, but the finale is undeniably pure woman. Sequined metallic jumpsuits with sheer insets sold sex like only the 70's could and then finished off with a gorgeous Swarovski encrusted violet gown.

### FLY ME TO THE MOON

PAGING DR. GAGA. PAGING DR. GAGA.

The Armani Prive Spring 2010 Couture collection was heavily inspired by the moon and although it bordered on kitchy at times (re: the organza moon shaped outfit), if anyone can make it work, it's Giorgio. Sculptured silhouettes and futuristic details took the ordinarily sleek and feminine brand to a whole new level. Suits were anything but boring with shapeful shoulders and protruding fabric appliques. When I say that this is the perfect wardrobe for the secretary who checks you into the planet Mars, I mean it in the best way possible. And with the Oscars just around the corner, I'm sure we will see lots of risk taking, alien-like celebs (I'm talking about you, Victoria Beckham) wearing these gorgeous looks.

### MALE MODELS

Mens fashion week has finally ended which means:

1. Real fashion week is almost here!

2. I have been looking at sexy male models for the past week and now I have a very neat and organized list of the men that I would like to have in my future (based on personality, of course).

### SAG AWARDS: DIANE KRUGER

Stick a fork in me, I'm done. Nothing makes me salivate like a mustard yellow dress with a red lip. For most, the color is impossible to pull off, but Diane Kruger makes this troublesome shade look effortless.

### KARL LAGERFELD PIN

If a broach could be sexy, it would probably look like this:

Dear Yazbukey,

I can't help but notice that the broach that you have created in honor of the white haired goddess that is Karl Lagerfeld has been sold out. I check back and I check back and nothing. So basically what I'm getting at is, who do I have to sleep with to get me one of these?

Love,

Jack

P.S. I'm just kidding, I will not sleep with you, people of Yazbukey...but I am prepared to do some very serious flirting..

### R.I.P CONAN'S TONIGHT SHOW

"LONG MAY YOU RUN" - NEIL YOUNG

PHOTO CREDIT: FANPOP.COM

Let me start off by saying that I am experimenting with the no caps thing. I am not happy about it as I actually write in all caps in real life. But at the end of the day, if no one can read the blog, then what the hell is the point.

Since fourth grade I have been making inspiration books composed of magazine tear-outs. I have a binder for each year since 1994 and nothing makes me happier than looking back on old advertisements. Sure, Tavi (for the record, I think she's great) posted pictures from her new Prada book of the Spring 2000 ad campaign with the lipstick skirts, but does she actually have it? Well, I do. I'm not bragging or anything, but as a 9 year old I was way ahead of my time and should be an inspiration to fashion icons everywhere.

Every season I look forward to the new ads and can't help but wonder what I will think of them in the years to come. Looks fade, designers go bankrupt, and magazines disappear, but the pages enclosed within sheet protectors and labeled by designer, magazine, year, and season...well those will last forever.
