Converse releases Sex Pistols inspired series

Nevermind The Yeezys, Here’s The Chucks. Without the Jamie Reid, Never Mind The Bollocks, or God Save The Queen art, I’ve gotta say that I’m disappointed.

Happy birthday, Edwige Feneche

The Goddess of Giallo, and Queen of Italian Sexy Comedies

R.I.P. to Warhol superstar and transgender icon, Holly Woodlawn

Holly came from Miami F.L.A.
Hitchhiked her way across the U.S.A.
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side,
Said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side.

Happy birthday, Tina Weymouth!

Happy birthday to designer, Emilio Pucci

“Gaiety is one of the most important elements I brought to fashion. I brought it through color.”

“I rediscovered colour and created a symphony of combinations. Flowers of all colours grow together in harmony in the fields and almost any one combination looks beautiful.”

Louise Brooks would have been 99 today

“I have a gift for enraging people, but if I ever bore you it will be with a knife.”

With that iconic, sharp bob, and a sexually liberated attitude, Louise Brooks virtually defined the Flapper era of femininity.

Here’s a BBC documentary, as I always find their docs entertaining and well produced (though I have not watched this one yet).

And her most enduring performance, as Lulu in G.W. Pabst’s 1929 film, Pandora’s Box…

It’s Hedy!

Hedy Lamarr would have been 101 today.
“I’m a sworn enemy of convention. I despise the conventional in anything, even the arts.”

Can’t you see that Holzer mane? Happy birthday, Baby Jane.

Make me a deal and make it straight
All signed and sealed, I’ll take it
To Robert E. Lee I’ll show it
I hope and pray he don’t blow it ’cause
We’ve been around a long time just try try try tryin’ to
Make the big time

Take me on a roller coaster
Take me for an airplane ride
Take me for a six days wonder but don’t you
Don’t you throw my pride aside besides
What’s real and make believe
Baby Jane’s in Acapulco We are flyin’ down to Rio
Throw me a line I’m sinking fast
Clutching at straws can’t make it
Havana sound we’re trying hard edge the hipster jiving
Last picture shows down the drive-in
You’re so sheer you’re so chic
Teenage rebel of the week
Flavours of the mountain steamline
Midnight blue casino floors
Dance the cha-cha through till sunrise
Open up exclusive doors oh wow!

Just like flamingos look the same
So me and you, just we two got to search for something new
Far beyond the pale horizon
Some place near the desert strand
Where my Studebaker takes me
That’s where I’ll make my stand but wait
Can’t you see that Holzer mane?
What’s her name Virginia Plain
