My VMAs fashion thoughts!

My VMAs fashion thoughts!

How can I not start with Lady Gaga? I love that she continues to outdo herself. She really is a unique individual. Lady Gaga ruled the night by winning 8 awards! But who cares about that.. let's talk about her wardrobe! She had 3 wardrobe changes and keep the worse for last! First Lady Gaga paid tribute to the amazing RIP Alexander McQueen by wearing one of his ART piece from his fall 2010 collection with her 10-inch Armadillo shoes that she wore in her "Bad Romance" video. GaGa’s look was completed with a gold feather hat by Philip Treacy. She wore that same dress for the September's British Vanity Fair issue. Stunning dress!

Her second outfit was a black leather dress and spiked black headpiece designed by Giorgio Armani. I loved it!

Finally, to accept her award for video of the year, Lady Gaga wore a meat dress by Franc Fernandez. I like Lady Gaga for her fearless creativity but that meat dress was gross! I wonder if she had a freezer instead of a garment bag?

PETA already reacted to her dress “Oh, Lady Gaga’s job is to do outlandish things, and this certainly qualifies as outlandish because meat is something you want to avoid putting on or in your body,” PETA’s President, Ingrid Newkirk, told the Daily News.

Here Gaga poses in a raw meat bikini for the cover of the September issue of Vogue Hommes Japan photographed by Terry Richardson. Also gross.

This is a really nice dress Katy.. if you are going to do a figure skating performance. I think she was shooting California Gurls with Snoop Dogg prior to her wardrobe consultation/fitting and had one to many drag! Her dress is from Marchesa from the Fall 2010 Collection and she wore Jimmy Choo heels completed her look.

Katy put miniature photographs of her fiancé's face, Russell Brand on her nails.. no comments!!

Ke$ha looked like a garbage warrior. Really.. she looks very uncomfortable and she's got such a cute style that she really could have done better. K$ wore Walter Steiger shoes, Charles Albert jewelery, and a Swarovski clutch. Her dress was designed by Marjan Malakpour and custom made by Lauren Bradely.

Chad Hugo, Pharrell Williams and Shay Haley of N.E.R.D. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pharrell!

My favorite performance of the night was from Eminem and Rihanna. "Not Afraid." Accompanied by an orchestra, chorus of gospel singers and drummers, he was joined later on by Rihanna to perform "Love the Way You Lie."

And yes.. I also like Kanye West performance.. I know he is a jerk but I still think he is amazing and the beat was so great! If I can be a jerk myself.. I would of add more ballet dancers on stage!

He wore a red suit, black low-cut shirt, gold chains, and his red Louis Vuitton collaboration shoes, the Don’s. You can get Kanye's shoes here for $870!


Ganja yoga ? Peanut butter and jelly?

Ganja yoga combines marijuana and meditation!

Following on the barefoot heels of hot yoga, circus yoga and hip hop yoga, cannabis-enhanced classes offer a way to cut through inhibitions!

Yoga instructor Dee Duss teaches to participants of her "ganja yoga" class, where people smoke marijuana before starting their yoga session at her studio on Grange Ave., Toronto Ontario September 01, 2010.

For the past year, she has run ganja yoga out of her home studio as well as at the Hot Box Café in Toronto’s Kensington Market. The class takes place on the last Friday of the month, after work, and she charges $15 for each session. Often, she invites a musician to play some relaxing tunes during the 90 minutes, and she gives out munchies – fruits, nuts, tea – after the class.

“Yoga and marijuana, together,” Ms. Pillay says, “it’s like putting salt on your food. It’s just a little enhancement.”

L'Art Du Deplacement

This is amazing!

Have you ever heard of Parkour? PK? Art Du Deplacement? Freerunning? People doing insane jumps between buildings.. What ever you call it.. I freaking love it!!! Many questions are raised between the differences of parkour and freerunning but it is quite similar.. I read that freerunning is expressing yourself within your environment and parkour is aiming to get from A to B the fastest. Parkour is often combined with other forms of acrobatics, such as free running, street stunts, tricking and traditional Chinese martial arts like Qing Gong (light body skill). It is amazing and is becoming more and more popular.

Parkour has appeared in various television advertisements, movies such as the film Casino Royale, documentaries, comic books, video games and music videos. Remember Madonna's video for her song "Jump"? Also her music video "Hung Up" contains some clips of free running. For Madonna's Confessions tour, free running was used for the choreography of "Jump". Even the Militaries from different countries are looking for ways to incorporate parkour into training such as the British Royal Marines, they hired parkour athletes to train their members.

I think that this new sport kinda reflect our lives. The buildings and fences represent the obstacles that we face and that we see impossible to overcome.

I can't help asking myself.. what kind of shoes are they wearing to do this? I believe one of them is wearing Kalenji running shoe.. Kalenji has become a firm favourite in the scene as THE shoe of choice amongst Freerunner’s and Traceur’s alike. The shoes are ugly!.. but they seems to be the best! Free running founder, Sébastien Foucan (The Casino Royale dude) helped K-Swiss develop the first shoe for free running and parkour. The shoes are called the Ariake. Sébastien appears in a commercial for K-Swiss, free running. You can see it here.

"Obstacles are found everywhere, and in overcoming them we nourish ourselves."

Quote by David Belle, Parkour founder.
