Lil' Blonde Darling: Farrah Fawcett!

Blonde Beauty Icon Farrah Fawcett

Today is the one year anniversary of Farrah Fawcett's untimely death. What better way to pay my respects than to celebrate her contribution to the wonderful world of haircare and glamOUR?! She was discovered in 1968, during her sophomore year at college, when a Hollywood publicist saw her photo in a "Ten Most Beautiful Coeds" pictorial in Cashbox magazine. She quickly moved from Texas to LA and began a modeling career, appearing in numerous TV commercials and print ads including Noxzema shaving cream, Wella Balsam shampoo and the 1975 Mercury Cougar. She quickly began accepting acting roles, playing supporting roles on TV shows like I Dream of Jeannie and The Six Million Dollar Man (which starred her then husband Lee Majors).

She is of course most fondly remembered for her role as the glamorous private detective Jill Munroe on Charlie's Angels. Jill was the sporty and athletic Angel, and spent most episodes running around LA in tight t-shirts, no bra with nipples! Farrah's nipples caused such a scandal on network television that the wardrobe department was instructed to cover them with tape. Even more popular than her perky nips was her iconic feathered hairstyle, which women across the world copied en masse. In years prior, women's hairstyles were either meticulously styled and shellacked with hairspray or ironed stick straight and parted down the middle. When Farrah appeared on the scene, there were wings and layers and  "effortless" movement; it always seemed like she had a high powered fan pointed at her at all times!

Farrah shocked the world (and producer Aaron Spelling) when she abruptly quit the series after only one season. An intense legal battle ensued and as part of her settlement, Farrah was forced to return for six guest appearances over seasons three and four of the series. She went on to star in films and TV movies of the week, but she will ALWAYS be Jill to me!


Get into this "clean", 70's "natural" beat!!

Drunk Brunch: LA Edition!

On my recent trip to LA last week, I have have discovered the happiest place on earth! No, not Disneyland...although there are rides and it does look like it could be from a warped, alternate reality version of Frontierland. I discovered the Saddle Ranch Chop House in West Hollywood. It's like a drunk brunch dream come true; not only are there mannequins dressed like old west prostitutes as oh so subtle decor....they offer all-you-can-drink unlimited mimosas....wait for it...EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK?!?! What?! Is it actually possible? Should I wipe the mascara from my eyes and pinch myself to see if I'm asleep? Nope. It's true. Another added bonus is that once you have drunk yourself into a can take advantage of their mechanical bull rides!! Fuck yes! This place was featured on a Season 3 episode of Sex and the City, where the girls go to LA, Miranda rides the bull and flashes a tit! It seemed appropriate that us 4 New Yorkers would come here on our trip to LaLa Land.

Located about a block from my luxurious hotel, I joined up with The Daughters; Alex Magnetic and The Jocelyn, Jenny Sok-N-Fuck and Semi Precious Weapons' guitar hero Stevy Pyne to drink, feast and ride machinery. The Joce of course made friends with our waiter Chester and he really hooked us up with a plethora of mimosa options; traditional orange, peach, mango, passion fruit, apple, and by that point I was so wasted I don't remember the rest. They started us off with scrumptious bisquets with maple butter, Joce got Mac and Cheese that was slammin', Stevy got a burger that I was pretty jealous of, I got a low carb omelette that was good for what it was.....and Alex got a serving of cotton candy the size of her head. All in all we definitely won at life.

The NEW Frontierland!

 Double fisted!

Winning at life!

The Sok!

Just a casual brunch tit out!

Sisters are doin' it for themselves!

She's a champ!

Doesn't everyone ride a bull in L'eggs Sheer Energy pantyhose?

Ride 'em cowgirl!

Lil' Blonde Darling: Elke Maravilha!

Blonde Beauty Icon Elke Maravilha

Is everyone in the mood for some blonde import  glaMOUR? Feast your eyes on Brazilian bombshell and TV personality Elke Maravilha!! Born to Russian and German parents, her family emigrated to Brazil when Elke was 6. She worked as a bank clerk, a secretary and as a librarian before being discovered and pursuing a modeling career. Famous for her eccentric fashion choices, she quickly started working as an actress and presenter on Brazilian TV in the 1970's.  Her performance as the madame of a brothel in the 1986 miniseries Memórias de um Gigolô (Memories of a Gigolô) earned her the title of  "godmother" to the Association of  Prostitutes of Rio De Janeiro (yes, that really exists)!! Now, I'm not trying to start rumors BUT in my research I have deduced that she may very well be transgendered (she's sometimes called "he" and is also lovingly referred to as "it" on her Brazilian Wikipedia [rude])!! Is Elke the Brazilian Amanda Lear?! Dubious gender = win!

Subtle contour sitch!

Can we talk about the placement of this eyeshadow???

A curl story.

Snake Eyes


Just a quick clown nose.

Boa Beauty.

Look at THAT brow bone!!!
