Mmmmm Squidly

Manolo says, nothing makes the man more hot for you than the colorful, breast-revealing squid costume.

    Squid, coneheads…its all the same kind of ugly.
    WTF is this?!?!
    Again though, its hard to focus on how ugly the outfit is when her breasts look like *that*!
    YOU GO GIRRRRRL!

    The Kazakhs, they strike again, and the Annalucia she can almost — repeat, almost — see the point of this costume: Kazakhstan is arid and mostly landlocked and its people the descendants of nomad herders, so perhaps anything that suggests water, or the sea, would be considered exotic and desirable. But the lady squid – she does not cut it, somehow. And of course this does not explain the Hooker Minnie whom the Manolo displayed to us yesterday. Are the designers making the Ironic Statement perhaps?

    It’s Troy McClure’s dream woman!

    The metallic flipper purse mitten thing is also a nice touch.

    Is the Elvira the only one thinking of the dominatrix out on the town for the glamorous evening? Perhaps the lady’s cat o’ nine tails is hidden in the metallic flipper purse mitten thing.

    Squids are very erotic, one can see why this would be a logical choice for the designer.

    I was going to email you about this… But all of Moldagoliyeva’s pieces looked to me like they were rejected Star Wars costumes (I have the whole series of photos here).

    Now, I do kind of like what Oscar de la Renta did with Central Asian designs.

    Ahh, Manolo, are you preparing us for the imminent arrival of our coming Squid Overlords?

    La BellaDonna says, this is fashion? You must be squidding me.

    La BellaDonna knows the traditional clothing of Kazakhstan, it is very very beautiful. These, er, interpretations … they make La BellaDonna look to see if Diver Dan is nearby, perhaps wearing the gold lame diving suit.

    I am so sad I cannot find a internet picture of the creation this photo brought to mind, but if you have a copy of John Waters’ “Shock Value” at hand, check out what Divine is wearing in the photo on page 136.

    Well I guess it is a mercy that the models can hide their faces. All I can think of when I look at that is,

    “Oh my goodness how will I ever get the smell off the fish!?”

    My first thought was that this would be just the thing for a prom sponsored by the Klu Klux Klan…

    Shiver me timbers, matey! I’m an old mariner who has sailed the seven seas and I have to tell you that I’ve seen few things sexier than this squid get up! I’m tempted to go out and buy one for each of my girlfriends. Perhaps if this catches on the designer will look at octopus and sea anemone themes. Wow!

    Ayyyy! La BellaDonna, she asks the Old Bubblehead, does he want the designers to put forth the Anemone of the People??

    Differences Between Kazakh and Uzbek Fashion

    Living very close to one another, speaking similar languages, and both of Turkic stock, Kazakh fashion and Uzbek fashion share interesting similarities. However, just as there are between these two nations, there are some striking differences in the f…
