How does Beyonce manage to ruin Balenciaga?! Beyonce's penchant for bling bling bling has crossed over to much hyped Balenciaga leggings, and it's rather tragic to see. At the BET awards, she emerged from a robotic sarcophagus, and gyrated her "fineass junk" like she was the shit, when all in all, she just looked like a cheap chandelier earring from the 99 cent store. And don't those leggings only come in a size negative 1/0/2? Erm, I really can't imagine Nicolas Ghesquiere customizing a pair just for this booty humpin' performance. But then again, Beyonce somehow got ahold of a golden globe nomination for her gawawful "acting" so whatever.

The new Marc Jacobs Fall 07 ads, are how do you say it, a great relief. Although the clothes are microscopic in the shot, thank god MJ replaced that prepubescent vexation, Dakota Fanning. Perhaps rehab let him clear his mind from his coke binges, cause his drug relapse was evident by his choice to put that infantile little child in his spring ads. She is growing up though- she gets raped in her next movie. Oh, the vagaries of child stars...
Suvi Koponen in the Fall Calvin Klein ads, taking over for Natalia, who is on maternity leave for her third child. Suvi's really owning up to the title of Finland's Next Top Model, which she won in 2005. Puts America's Next Top Model/trashbag to shame, cos all our winners do is walk in Baby Phat fashion shows next to transvestite Kimora Lee Simmons. Sigh...
Mother Lorraine, with Agyness, 17
When she was 14, Laura Hollins worked part-time working at The Village Chippy in Stubbins, Lancashire, serving deep-fried chips to the transfats lovin' customers in a rather unfashionable hairnet.
During her teenage punk phase while shmoking cigarettes and hanging with BFF Henry Holland, Agy would dye her cropped hair a "variety of colours and styles, including black, red, blonde, pink, shaved and chequerboard." I would totally kill to see Agy's scalp resemble a Van's checkered shoe, wow.
Funny to think that this girl will later become the face of Armani, Mulberry, shot by Steven Meisel for all things Vogue, touted as the next Kate Moss and Britain's shining beacon of supermodel light. Oh, and being known for that one phallus-inspired House of Holland slogan. Yeah.
The baby-doll-alien-bug-eyed-beauteous-freak-of-nature model phase ain't dying off. Even with the onslaught of hard, steelcut models like Suvi Koponen and Lara Stone, there's still these going to be these 16 year olds like Masha Tyelna (women) with peepers as big as saucers that barely fit the size of her head. One would need a yardstick to measure those protuberances, jeees. Although I can say, she does fill that Jil Sanders quotient quite well with her disturbingly surreal features.
