Realness Report: Fashion Week, Kristen Stewart, Gaga

by Jamie Sanford on September 12, 2011

New feature! I have been sucked into the term “realness” from watching too many episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race, RuPaul’s Drag U, etc.

You can see the origin of talking about realness in terms of “passing” in this clip from Paris is Burning.

In this instance, realness I’m talking about is encapsulating a look or attitude from another person, culture, situation, etc.  It’s a broader definition, but it works for me and let’s go with it.

“Just out of the shower with a hangover” realness at the Alexander Wang Spring 2012 show at New York Fashion Week.

Kristen Stewart looks AMAZING in this month’s W Magazine, but as you can see from the picture, she is giving lots of Priscilla Presley realness.  Click here to check out the rest of the photos and an interview with Kristen.

Carnation realness from Lady Gaga.  Come on, look at that hat.  (In all seriousness though, how beautiful does Gaga look here? She looks fabulous with a pale lip and that blond hair, for about a week she looked just beautiful, without distracting from it with her fashion extremes.  I appreciate that part of Gaga too, but I really loved this look.)

Hook it up on Facebook with your suggestions!

I had this link from ages ago, to these adorable Lady Gaga cookies.

Here’s a tutorial that is much easier than I anticipated on making an animal-print manicure.

Add VersaEmerge to the list of acts that have covered Britney’s “Toxic” and covered it well.

That brings Sights and Sounds #21 to a close!

This trailer is great! I love the Muppets.

Only Jennifer Lopez can wear something this random and make it work. I LOVE HER.

Lady Gaga, Gwyneth Paltrow and Geoffrey Rush on the same episode of the Graham Norton show? So much fun.

Check out this Parmesan Cheese Twists recipe over at Sugarlaws. These are perfect for making a quick delicious snack in the summer.

That’s all for Sights and Sounds #20. Share links over at the Facebook page!

So, Aqua is apparently back? This is the video for their new single, “How R U Doin?

So far, “The Edge of Glory” might be my favorite song from the new Lady Gaga album.  More on that later.

So , I grew up listening to Barbra Streisand because my mom and grandmother love her. I have to admit, I don’t think I’ve seen Lea Michele go wrong with any of the classic Barbra songs, and she did “My Man” really well on Glee last week.

Curvy girl of the week is Kat Dennings, who looked crazy hot at the Thor premiere.

Justin Timberlake, Andy Samberg and Lady Gaga! I love it.

Christina Perri singing “Jar of Hearts” on Jimmy Kimmel. I’m not tired of this song at all.

Beyonce’s video for “Run the World (Girls)” is very pretty but I totally agree with Kevin and Makael’s original assessment of the song.

I didn’t know much about Amber Rose before, but really started enjoying her after seeing her on this past season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. She’s hot!
