Prada Menswear: Not So Manly

Here are a couple shots from the Prada's fashion show in Milan this week. The show began by revealing some feminine necklines and relatively tight tops. Sure, this was a little strange, but at least the frail models were wearing pants. As the show continued, men began appearing in what seemed to be dresses. Seems like an interesting idea, but it is definitely going to take some time to stick.

Deals: Payless

Have you ever wondered who exactly goes shopping at payless shoe stores? If so, you are not alone. This inexpensive footwear franchise seems like it has been around forever, but not many are brave enough to venture into the overly air-conditioned, disorganized shop whose windows are adorned with diamond covered, last season, tacky shoes, many being knock offs. So far it may sound awful, but when you look past the first few pairs, there are many other incredibly inexpensive finds.

The shoes above are some available online:
1. Toni Sandal, $15.99
2. Graceful Linen bow Mocassin, $24.99
3.Abaeté for Payless Cheyenne Tote, $28.00

Agyness Deyn J.P.G. Commercial

Aggyness Deyn seems to be just about EVERYWHERE now a' days. Her most recent venture is in this commercial for Jean Paul Gaultier's new perfume, Madame. It is pretty hardcore, Aggy looks stunning as always. The background music is almost disturbing, and the flashing words are a bit distracting, but the commercial does leave you wondering what this new perfume smells like, and if Deyn does in fact wear it. It is bizarre to see her sporting long hair, given her history of the traditional cropped cut. The commercial is remarkably similar to one she did for burberry not so long ago.
