  1. Actually the image is from a collaboration between David Lynch and Christian Louboutin for an exhibit entitled "Fetish". Lynch photographed two dancers from the Crazy Horse club in Paris wearing fetish footwear designed by Louboutin.

  3. Am I the only gay man in the US who thinks Amanda Lepore is as disgusting as Jocelyn Wildenstein(sp?)???

  4. Lito,

    No, you are not.

    And that's so not Amanda Lepore. The lips don't look as if she'd been punched by a construction worker wearing brass knuckles.

  7. I love Cannes and the festival. I am from Greece and currently live in Monte Carlo. Amanda is quite a personality. She is a muse in the fashion industry and I can't wait for the rest of the world to see her out and about in Cannes. She is quite disturbing looking, but she is nice. At least they were open enough to enlist her.
