Okay. Beyoncé cut some fringe for a minute and decided to rock it last night in London town. Now, is it me, or is her fringe totally floating? It's as it it's trying to run away from her beautiful face. If anyone out there is as big of an anglophile as I am or are actually British, you will know what I mean when I say that she looks like Jill ... See the Rest

Call me naïve, but I never took former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger to be the twerking type. Is that just me? She seemed like the one who was always going out of her way to appear proper, lady like and demure, no? Well, she let it alllll out and then some on the G-A-Y stage in London over the weekend.

Reporting From London: Miles Chapman Wants To Ring Your Neck

Miles Chapman just off the boat when we first met and his "10 Years of Eternity" necklace

For my continuing London series, I wrote a post about Miles Chapman's talented partner, Bouke de Vries, the other day. This isn't just a tit for tat post – Miles is multi-talented in his own right. We met when he came over with Tina Brown to edit Vanity Fair. I designed the section of the magazine that he edited, called Vanites. We fought like mad, ... See the Rest
