It's Like That New Fragance From Vivienne Westwood; ANGLOMANIA
don't y'all just love the year end issue of a magazine? the fat-ass issue, jammed pack with colorful consumer ads which make you wanna stick to that new year's resolution to save-up so you can get this and that? i love year-end issues and the Vogue one is no exception. momma brought a copy home today and i was going through it religiously. and i just have to tell y'all a coupla things. first, for the life of me, i can't remember who Sienna Miller is. she's on the December cover and looks a bit like Molly Simms. second, i am just blown away by their Pantomime fashion spread. it's like a fairy tale bonanza that reminds me of Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness CD art direction. must be costly because they used real animals in the photo shoots (37 pages worth). everything is just so lovely.

one of my most favourite was the one with The Office's Mackenzie Crook. they dressed him up in John Galliano and armour plate. i almost didn't recognise him because he wore his hair long and floppy and it was so dirty blond Corbain. i mean, in The Office he comes off as a weedy, sickly, Earth Worm Jim sort. typical English working class. much like my old supervisor, Nick. i remember when i first met Nick, i thought of Mackenzie Crook. ok, digressing. anyhow the Vogue people gave him an edgy look in their spread. super sexy, man. speaking of super sexy, Poo's favourite leading man, Johnny Depp is Willy Wonka in Tim Burton's Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. lemme hear a collective 'figures' from y'all now. Helena Bonham Carter is in it, too. yay! Da, i didn't know Veruca Salt got their name from a character in the book. so now i know. i wanna watch this adaptation of the Roald Dahl book.
