    You have to wonder why she’s looking at him and why they’re both smiling.

    I seem to be missing the photo.

  3. Manolo the Shoeblogger Says:

    Ayyyyy! The Manolo has now fixed it.

  4. Ruffa la Femme Says:

    He looks very feline here, like some sort of skeevy alley cat.

  5. DAL Says:

    Is it just me or is his fly open?

  6. Jenny Says:

    Like night and day, those two.

  7. ginny Says:

    Ah. The little troll of the fashion is a boxer troll.

  8. la petite chou chou Says:

    Barn door = fly.

    I have a coworker who makes that face when he’s up to something…

  9. Cris Says:

    What is there to say about a guy who appears to buy his clothes from the Spanish Cavalry thrift shop? Glad it was just his fly he left open. It could have been his flanks.

  10. The Princesse Says:

    Ayyyyyyyyyyyyyy matey.

  11. Jeannie Dahl Says:

    “XYZ” = eXamine Your Zipper.

    Also, always remember to roll your mouse over the image for the “secret” joke.

  12. La Petite Acadienne Says:

    It is a testament to Galliano’s funkiness, however, that one almost has to stop and wonder whether the open fly is a deliberate part of his ensemble.

    “You know you want the funky little fashion troll. Look…I have even left my pantalons unbuttoned so as to torment you with what you want so desperately, but cannot have. Well…maybe you can have it, if you bring me another appletini and smile pretty.”

  13. BeckyJ Says:

    Ya know, La Petite, that was my first thought too…..

  14. Phyllis Says:

    Ant Mu-u-usic…

  15. Jenbug Says:

    I’m certainly neutral on the accessibility of Mr. Galliano’s crotch, with a leaning towards ‘Do not want.’ But Yayyyy Dita Von Teese out in public after scraping off that nasty skinny thing that followed her home and pretended it was love. I had been worried about Miss Dita’s happiness (no matter how hot you are, being ditched by your alcoholic husband for a 19 year old MUST still hurt) but as she’s out and about and still GORGEOUS I am pleased. Good for her, trading a zombie for a troll! Trolls need love too, zombies just need brains and constant stroking of their pathetic little ego.

    Thank God he’s at least wearing underwear!

  17. la petite chou chou Says:

    Ha. I had no idea about the scrolling over the picture for the Manolo’s secret jokes…
