Fay-shun.

I really, really love Donna Karan, but I kinda wish she'd put some clothes on.

my video is coming out all jagged, buffering is slow...but she looks great. hair looks like mink. the one shoulder thing is a bit affected, but forgiven.

and how are you dovey?

You're right. She's a fucking star. I take back my one-shoulder grumpiness.

She looks like she gets a spa treatment every day. Maybe I am just jealous.

i thought you were being ironic because all of the models were covered, head to toe! this whole collection made me itch while watching, it all looks so annoying to wear. you can only see their gaunt little faces of the models, and their rickety legs! and yet, donna has her own clothes dripping off of her. odd.

i can't forgive her for her comment last year about fur "i don't give a shit, when i look at them (the animals) all i see are handbags and accessories!" hate her and her shit attitude.

God that shoulder. I guess instead of the ass or the face, Donna Karen chose the shoulder.

Makes you think...

Jill said...

I think she looks sexy and I loved this collection. I can never get the perfect smoky eye shadow thing going. Bravo to her. She's continued to be relevent after all these years.

Someone must have told her years ago that her shoulders were her best asset. She passed that sage advice to Barbra.

Agreed. I call this an "Oh Honey Moment". When you see someone dressed inappropriately and you just want to say something like this: "Oh honey, when you have a foot of cleavage showing it's time to put on a decent bra."

That model walked like she had rebar up her bum. By comparison, D.K.'s posture was atrocious. That's why the tatas were so....exposed. The clothes were ok but those fur muffs reminded me of the time I saw Cats. Where is magical Mr. Mistofaleez?

Donna Karan is a STAH! Why can't she remain sexy? She looks f-ing great!

LOVE the Cold Shoulder jersey dress! I'm not WILD about some of the looks, but eh- DK is kinda always hit or miss for me. Shearling gauntlet gloves? Square shoulders? Not so much...

But on the other hand...
Maybe I should start paying more attention to her stuff again...

Oh, I don't know--I think Snuggies are definitely more comfy when you're naked underneath.

Sparker said...

Please, Donna, put on a brawr!

Tommy said...

It's funny to me that she didn't mention 'recession' a single time in the video. Even though her clothes are definitely luxe, she's pared down to the seven "essential" pieces. But this time I think she hit it.

WELL - Donna has always been a very un-selfconscous person ( is that even a word? ) about her body.
I've worked in the fashion industry for a long time, and know people who've worked for her - its just how she is, God bless her! After her husband passed away she had everything "done" - and why not?
She's Donna! But you do have a point and I agree cause I saw her recently at a party - girlfriend - get thee to Victoria's Secret!

Glad to see that you are alive and kicking. Have a super week.

I have a love hate relationship with her. Love her designs, hate her attitude.

I'm 5'2" and curvy. Sorry, that shit would make me look like I'm wearing a scandalous burqa.

big boy said...

I think I saw Donna's has an Adams Apple, maybe it was just me?

Julia said...

The model looked like she was going to trip over her own feet with every step. Maybe it was the shoes? Very uncomfortable looking.

Somebody has GOT to start a blog called "Scandalous Burqa."

Jill said...

Thanks for not posting my drunken rant.

propriatress said...

I like DK too, most of the time. Perhaps The Shoulder was to make up for The Gorilla Gauntlets...(I am sooo stealing ..."foot of cleavage"...Karen.....

Christina said...

I totally agree about the bra...we need some lift and thrust, girl!

And the eye make-up...Jill, if you want to learn the perfect smokey eye, I will teach you! I don't really think the ring-around-the-eye thing that Donna is rocking is so great. Too...ringy.

Loved listening to her passionate fashion talk, though!
