I read one journalist/blogger describe GaGa on the cover as "made to look like a transsexual hippie mermaid", GaGa is the biggest thing in pop music, offically crowned by Forbes magazine as the second most powerful person in music, to be honest she could have a moustache, eye-patch and a parrott on her shoulder and it would probably make the number one most powerful person in music. GaGa is devastatingly influentual in modern day popular culture, she says "papa" and the rest of the world says "razzi". I am not a ravenous GaGa fan but I am a fan of popular culture and it is pretty hard to ignore her, especially when she is gyrating on every music channel in high-definition.

Emily Blunt makes certain parts of my anatomy pointy. Not many pictures of this editorial as it hits shelves August 4th, but here are a few of Miss Blunt clad in Valentino Fall lace and a Miu Miu dress. She is delicious, I will admit this on the information super-highway, I will buy this magazine just to see Emily Blunt.

Goth couture, that should be the tagline for this collection. Gareth Pugh isnt big on bright garish colours or a modest pastel pallete, monotonous and dark shades are more his penchant as his past collections are testament to that. This collection features sharp cuts and designs, almost futuristic goth couture, of chiffon and asymetric leathers, very edward scissorhands-esque , but with supressed panache (oxymoron).

Tom Ford's eyewear advertising campaign features poster boy Nicholas Hoult and Freja Beha Erichsen, shot by Ford himself it is partly inspired by Albert Hitchcock's classic masterpiece "The Birds". Ford's ad campaigns are usually sexually charged, this is tame compared to the last one shot by Mario Testino, but I do like it. Everyone who gives a Camel's testicle about aesthetics should watch Tom Ford in his directorial debut film, "A Single Man". It is one of the most visually stimulating films I have ever seen, so rich in colour, taste and cinematography. Imagine if the adverts in Vogue were a feature length film, but much more tasteful and you have "A Single Man".

Right, If someone got me this cake I would be in two minds, do I scream in terror or dilate my pupils and gasp in genuine awe? I dont know what it is with my weird posts, first the hair thing and now this. These are real cakes by the way, created by "cake artist" Scott Hove.

These weird and wonderful creations are the brain child of Japanese art director Nagi Noda. To create these "hair hats", as she calls them, she uses a mold or mesh and real hair with weaved extenions. If a girl turned up to a date with one of these on her head I would make it my sole intention to conjure up as many hair related puns as possible. I like it though.

"The new Moncler Grenoble A/W 2010 collection was presented on an army of 100 models spread over four layers of scaffolding at NY’s waterside Pier 59 Golf Club. The show featured jackets, trousers and shirts in shades of plum, slate and mahogany. Following suit from Thom Browne’s spectacular, military-themed Moncler Gamme Bleu spectacle just weeks ago in Milan, the show, produced by Etienne Russo of Villa Eugenie, was a sight to behold on the edge of the Hudson River." - via Wallpaper*

Right, first of all before I explain the che che che che cheddar cheese and banana's let me just say, I watched Inception this evening and seriously the epic proportions of this film are just stratospherical, honestly it is an utter mind-fuck, I URGE EVERYONE TO SEE IT! I wont be gregarious and ruin it. Anyway, onto the cheese and banana's, I left the cinema thinking about how to have more vivid dreams and the idea was embedded in my head for ages (watch the film and you'll understand my poor attempt at irony), apparently eating cheese and a banana before bed gives you seriously vivid and surreal dreams, Salvador Dali was the poster boy for this apparently. Gonna give it a try tonight.
