After a few hours of the always relevant Law and Order marathon last night, I just thought I would post a couple pictures of Jayne Mansfield, otherwise known as "The Poor Man's Marilyn Monroe" and Mariska Hargitay's mamma. She was beautiful! Check out how jealous Sofia Loren is!! How very un-Italian. (SIKE!)
Look at these bad-ass shoes created by Romanian Mihai Albu. They kind of take the "Wearable" out of "Wearable Art", but I guess it's only a matter of time before these end up on The Sartorialist, oui?
This guy must hate women!! I can see this being some elaborate plot on Law and Order SVU where an abused child forced into premature adulthood takes out his aggression on women by torturing them with painful footwear...
Albu calls his designs, which run up to nearly $1600, "Constructed Chaos". Amen to that...!
I, the girl who can be found in motorcycle boots for most of the year, would not wear them, but I definitely respect them as architectural phenomenons and beautiful pieces of art work. But I can't wait to see Gaga strutting around in them.

And now, my dear readers...The Piece Du Resistance:
Ever wondered what Elephant dung looks like???? Or better yet, what it feels like to step on it?

Canadian Yanick Dery is another fashion photographer extraordinaire that I simply adore! His photographs are playful, almost devilishly so, and the way he portrays women is somewhat derogatory and objectified, but with an obvious sense of awe and some kind of adoration!
