Ellen, our fashion icon

I woke up this morning wondering how this website has been up and running for a good seven months and we are yet to appreciate my favourite lesbian fashionista, Ms Ellen Degeneres. The woman who makes us laugh, makes us proud and who coined the (hilarious) widely accepted term, ‘chapstick lesbian’.

For me, Ellen is gorgeous in that ‘I hope I look half as good as her at 50’ way, but her fashion sense transcends generations.  She wears outfits my mom and I would share. I could steal every one of her jackets, vests, shirts, jeans, and especially her shoes. She makes casual glamourous, and simple sexy. I love that she doesnt try to be anything she’s not. That she’ll wear jeans and trainers with lip gloss and mascara, and that you will NEVER see her in a dress. I’m not huge on dresses anymore either, so I totally respect that!

What I love most about Ellen’s look is anyone can do and it won’t cost a whole week’s wage. Everyone owns jeans, t’s, jackets, sneakers – you just have to match them right. The key to this is putting on your regular outfit, and then adding one thing extra. Example: jeans+t-shirt+sneakers, then you could throw on a vest, or a scarf, or a cardi. Unless it gets cold where you are, try to stick to one extra item, otherwise it’s overkill.

Lucas Silveira’s candy skull tattoo

 

Lucas Silveira of The Cliks

Lucas Silveira

Lucas Silveira, lead guitarist and frontman for the awesomely-awesome band The Cliks, should be admired for a whole bunch of reasons. Not only is he the lead singer of a totally kick-ass (and mainstream!) band, he does it as a totally open transgendered man, never shying away from public discussion about his transition. It takes a lot of balls (no pun intended) to be who you are, especially when you have to do it publicly.

I’ve loved The Cliks for the past couple of years, ever since my girl introduced me to their song Oh Yeah, which ended up on repeat on my iPod for a solid 37 days. And after (finally!) watching season 4 of LA Ink over the weekend, I am now loving Lucas’ choice in tattoos!

I love tattoos! I plan to do a many more posts about them, and I think this one is incredible. Not only does it have a great significance to Lucas, it is a beautiful design by the great Kat Von D. The only problem with seeing this tattoo is how much is makes me want to get more myself. I guess that’s not really such a big problem is it?!

Alexander McQueen died today. He was discovered in his apartment in London, apparently having hung himself just a week after his mother passed away. My heart is broken.

Alexander McQueen - he changed my world

In life, you live for those moments when you see something so beautiful it changes your world.  Seeing one of Alexander McQueen’s early pieces was one of those moments for me. As a teenager growing up in a sleepy coastal town, I was reading Vogue and dreaming about the big wide world when I flipped to a page featuring several Alexander McQueen designs. I remember gasping at how incredible, beautiful and utterly ridiculous they were and at that moment I discovered the true link between fashion and art. That moment changed the way I thought about fashion and about life generally, as I realised there was so much beauty to be seen and experienced by breaking away from everything you think you know, everything that should be, and everything you’ve always been told. By doing things your way, even when it could be the ‘wrong’ way, you could create something so totally and incredibly unique. This is what Alexander McQueen taught me and I’m sad that he is gone. I hope he is at peace now.

Lindsay Lohan’s naked photoshoot

OK, so that’s what they’re touting this as – Linday’s naked photoshoot. Truth is – she isn’t naked, but there is nipple (if you’re into that sorta thing)! The sometimesdyke, all-times party animal appears here on the cover of the January issue of Muse magazine in a racy Kate Moss/Johnny Depp inspired photo shoot called “Lindsay Lohan Exposed.” Don’t get too excited – her soul isn’t exposed, just her boobies. I’d love to talk about what she’s wearing, but since it isn’t all that much I’ll just let you enjoy the piccies.

Marc Jacobs 4 Marriage Equality t-shirt

Marc Jacobs wants marriage equality and he isn’t afraid to say so… or print it on a t-shirt and hang it in the window of his store in New York City! I came across this awesome t while in the Meat Packing District during the Sex And The City tour, and just had to have it. Available for only $25 and made from 100% cotton, the t-shirt makes a statement in more ways than one – it says “I can be stylish” AND “I want gay marriage!”
