There were some real upside down and sideways looks on display at the The Council of Fashion Designers of America awards in NYC last night. Most notably Whoopi Goldberg giving us Little Bo Peep who lost her sheep and was forced to go to the big city and take out a bank loan for more, wearing her best Big Business suit. The added bonus of that suit is that those giant bell bottoms probably ring so damn loud, the sheep should have no problem finding their way back home.
Other notable looks included: Cate Blanchett‘s tuxedo/ baked potato/ butcher’s apron combo, and the night’s host Issa Rae’s belt that read “Every Nigga Is A Star”. All of those looks and more are in the gallery but for now, we’ve got plenty of high fashion to keep us in “what is going on here”s for a week.
Another purple nug from the Prince vault has been unearthed. Prince apparently had aspirations of becoming the face of the Black Lives Matter movement. But Price wanted a second so he thought and he thought about who he’d like to have join him in his crusade against racial injustice. I guess Chaka Khan wasn’t unavailable so he went the next person on his list, Donatella Versace.
The new trailer for the upcoming season of Ryan Murphy’s true crime anthology, American Crime Story 2: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, is finally here. I have a feeling Donatella Versace‘s long skeletor finger has raked itself across Ryan’s face and warned him to “keep it classy, dahling”. I know she’s not supposed to be the star but Donatella is clearly the funnest character up in this bitch. And if you’re competing with Gina Gershon and Maya Rudolph in The Battle of The Network Donatellas, bleaching Penelope Cruz’s eyebrows, slapping a blond wig on her head and saying “presto chango!” does not a Donatella make. It makes a weird looking Penelope Cruz with a bizarro accent. She’s still basically Penelope Cruz but with itchy looking contacts and hasn’t she been through enough already?
The only thing Madonna might love more than the fresh blood of greased-up backup dancers is to gyrate around a crucifix and surf on a nun. So Anna Wintour really missed an opportunity by not making the Material Girl the lady priest or co-host or whatever of next year’s Met Gala. Because the theme is honoring Catholic fashion. Instead, it’ll be a “say wha?” trinity with Rihanna, Donatella Versace, and Amal Clooney serving as celebrity co-hosts. Continue reading
Donatella Versace may be my pick for best dressed mess at last night’s Meth Gala and that’s only because sources (that only exist in my head) tell me that she trolled the shit out of the KarJenners.
Because Anna Wintour will invite any ole’ trick with 10 million Instagram followers or more to the Met Gala, Kylie Jenner went again and looked like the low-tide baby of Draco Malfoy and Travis The Singing Trout who got caught in a barf-colored fishermen’s net. Donatella Versace is partly responsible for that busted look since she designed the dress, but that’s not the trolling I’m talking about. I’m talking about Donatella posing next to Kim Kartrashian’s fame whore apparent while looking like a really glamorous piss stream.
The original Kim Kartrashian was there last night, so I’m surprised that her packing peanuts-stuffed ass didn’t act on instinct and immediately rub themselves against Donatella’s golden showers gown. My only complaint about Donatella’s stunning sopissticated look is that she didn’t finish it off with a boomerang fascinator on her head. Then she’d really look like piss coming out of Ray-J’s boomerang dick. Next time, Donatella. Next time!
I don’t whether to scream out a million FUCK YESes over Lady Gaga not getting cast as plastic orchid Donatella Versace, or scream out a million NOOOOOOooos over La Bruja from Real Housewives of Miami getting shamelessly robbed of the role!
Ryan Murphy already made many breathe out a giant sigh of relief by saying that Lady Gaga is too busy to play Donatella Versace in the third season of American Crime Story, which is going to focus on the murder of Gianni Versace. Ryan said that they were in talks with an Oscar-winner to play Donatella and my guess was Charlize Theron. But FX announced today that the Oscar-winner who will throw on a wig of bleached straw, a melting rubber Muppet mask and a thick Italian accent to play Donatella will be Penelope Cruz.
TVLine says that filming for Versace: ACS will start next month. It will air sometime in 2018 after the second season of American Crime Story airs. The second season is about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the fourth season is about the Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton sex escandalo.
Darren Criss is playing Andrew Cunanan and Edgar Ramirez will be Gianni Versace in Versace: ACS.
I don’t totally hate this and mainly because one of my favorite Penelope Cruz performances is when she played a gold digging coke whore in Blow. She wore a blond wig in that for a second. So maybe going blond again will bring out yet another magnificent performance from her.
And since I brought up Penelope Cruz’s highly riveting performance in Blow, here’s the scene that should’ve gotten her a thousand Oscars:
You know…. seeing Johnny Depp with that blond hair is making me say that his ass should’ve played Donatella!
