Cyndi Lauper Just Wants Your Fun!

Cyndi Lauper commandeers a PA microphone at Jorge Newbery Airport in Buenos Aires for an impromptu performance of “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” in an effort to help airport staff quell the anger of severely delayed passengers.

Now if we could only get this kind of natural spontaneous entertainment from some of our top pop stars in today's musique...i'm just saying.

Dig Cyndi below!

So Are We Equal? James Bond AKA Daniel Craig Asks Silently.

Scope out this short film which addresses an unfathomable but realistic truth we continue to live in. Actor Daniel Craig gets in Drag for a Women’s Rights PSA narrated by actress Judi Dench. The public service announcement puts Craig in a position that only the most secure male can attempt and it is perfectly executed to relay the important issue.

Check out the clip below.

The two-minute short, specially commissioned for International Women's Day, sees 007 star Daniel Craig undergo a dramatic makeover as he puts himself, quite literally, in a woman's shoes.

Directed by acclaimed 'Nowhere Boy' director/conceptual artist Sam Taylor-Wood, scripted by Jane Goldman ('Kick Ass') and featuring the voice of Dame Judi Dench reprising her role as 'M', the film will be screened in cinemas and streamed online in a bid to highlight the levels of inequality that persist between men and women in the UK and worldwide. It is the first film featuring Bond to be directed by a woman.

Director: Sam Taylor-Wood. Producer: Barbara Broccoli. Scriptwriter: Jane Goldman. Director of photography: Seamus McGarvey. Featuring the voice of Dame Judi Dench.

The EQUALS partnership and Annie Lennox would like to thank all the production team, cast and crew that donated their time, vision and energy in the hope of a more equal world for women and girls.

I say...leave it up to Madonna, the mother of reinvention in pop musique, to have already addressed this unfathomable issue.

Viktor and Rolf Fall 2011 Collection

We're back kiddas! Picking up where we last left off (Including our favorite pick, Agnes b; as our choice as the best menswear collection for Fall 2011). As we've stated previously, fashion week Fall 2011 is exploding everywhere left and right. So we have decided to cover and to inform all you dedicated and darling followers of ours with official coverage from the shows. Note: The picture selections you see are our picks exclusively. There is obviously much more in the collection itself. But as always, I only select the pieces that speak to me, the ones that make me feel something from an expressionist point of view.

Next up, Viktor and Rolf Fall 2011 collection. According to fashion writer Leah Chernikoff...

The photo pit at l’Espace Ephemere in the Tuileries, impatient with the delay at Viktor and Rolf, began singing, shouting, whistling (there was some raising of middle fingers, too)–anything to spur the lights to dim and the show to start. As if to answer the photogs’ lewd taunts in kind, a draw bridge lowered, angry militaristic music began pumping through the tent, and red-faced models marched down the runway. It was a little scary.

I would not want to do battle against Viktor and Rolf’s army of lady warriors. Their armor–leather or stiff chiffon-plated dresses with shoulders that were exaggerated or cut out completely, high collars, and sharply pleated skirts–looked impenetrable and almost reptilian. Black stockings had blood red seams running up the back and the voice against the percussive soundtrack pleaded “hurt” over and over. I don’t know who will wear this stuff (maybe Daisy Lowe, La Roux or Leigh Lezark, all of whom sat front row??) but I do not want to mess with them.
