Photostyling 101

Supermodel Heidi Klum and Funny man Will Farrell have a spread together in the May 2008 Swimsuit Issue of Sports Illustrated. Look at how nicely a model and a non-model (in a basketball uniform) complement each other in a non-threatenting, non-ugly, and non-menacing way. Granted, the above photo is based on Will Farrell’s not so funny movie Semi-Pro but you guys get the idea, right?

Miss Anna over there at Vogue and my once favorite photographer Annie Leibovitz (she’s done some wack photoshoots and is playing herself right NOW!) should take some notes on how a photoshoot of this style can be done without marginalizing or cannibalising the image.

More photos after the jump.

I’m a Bag Whore… Didn’t I tell you?

I swear I am. I will do ANYTHING for a bag. I love high end bags, bags that are worth more than a mortgage payment, and even bags bought on the sidewalk in Soho. I LOVE LOVE LOVE handbags! I think it was Wendy Williams who said one time on her nationally syndicated radio show that bags and accessories are a fat girl’s true vice when it comes to fashion. Why? Since we can’t fit the clothes and maybe even the shoes, we buy up everything else.

That is so true about me. Before I got Lasik surgery I wore Chanel glasses and carried an authentic Chanel wallet.  I have all of the Burberry fragrances along with the matching travel case that was “the free gift” with purchase.  I even own a pair of pink, Chanel double “C” earrings that were all the rage about 5 years ago. This, all because I couldn’t walk into Chanel and purchase couture in my size.

Slowly but surely, designers are coming around. Norma Kamali has put out a few plus size pieces such as this red, side drape dress made out of polyester and spandex. It goes up to 3x, but I’m not sure if it’s worth $298. We’ll just have to see… you know I ordered it! But until more designers go beyond standard sizing, I’ll continue to be a bag whore and lust after the following:

or maybe this… Chloe Paddington Tote - brick red from Chloe.  And finally, no fashionista’s bag game is correct without a little something from LV. This tote would look perfect on my trip to Paris and Provence this summer!
