Faceoff 2.0

Mark Harmon is on a tear! I do think he is handsome, but he is sort of a “generic” handsome that I’ve never been that attracted to. But it doth seem like I am in the minority.

Today, I’ve got a challenger who is the antithesis of “generically handsome” in anyone’s book. In fact, he’s not really handsome at all, but man, is he hot.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Lego Figure: Lost in Translation

Hold onna minute, why all of a sudden does he have a shirt on?  This soon to be released Prince of Persia mini-fig is disappointingly well-clad.

Humpf, apparently the Lego figurine was not made with moms in mind.

Fine Lego, whatever.  But don’t you realize who actually buys these things?

Sarah Michelle Prinze, Thanks for the Normalcy

All right, I was trying not to talk about some of the crazy-ass names that celebrities have been coming up with lately, but Ellen Pompeo’s choice was the straw that broke Glinda’s back. And that saying is apt, because at this point, I sort of look like a reverse camel, with the big bump being on the tummy instead of on the back. I hope that makes sense. It makes sense to me, but lately, that isn’t saying a whole lot.

First, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden’s choice of name for their son made me do a mental double-take. Sparrow? Are they for serious? As in tiny, frail, ubiquitous brown bird? I read somewhere that some (most likely) self-proclaimed “naming expert” praised them for their originality and inventiveness, saying that since Captain Jack Sparrow’s name was, well, Sparrow, that suddenly Sparrow stands for manliness. Sorry to break it to everyone, but no, it does not. Hearing the word sparrow brings images of a beady-eyed, greedy little thing that likes to pick up other people’s discarded popcorn and whatnot off the ground.

And as for Ellen, her choice was somewhat literary, but confusing nonetheless. Is she not aware of the extremely famous and popular book Stellaluna? You know, the one about the bat? Granted, she is a lovely and wonderful bat, but still a bat nonetheless. Yes, that is exactly the mental picture I want everyone to have in mind when they say my name. It’s like naming your child “Ramona Quimby Pompeo” or “Harriet the Spy Pompeo.” It just doesn’t work.

At least we have Sarah Michelle Prinze, who chose the almost old-fashioned Charlotte Grace.   Count at least one child of actor parents who will not have to face life with some crazy name their parents decided to saddle them with in the name of “art” or “creativity.”

Suri Cruise and Her High Heels

Suri high heels

Why so smug, Katie Holmes?

Yes, I know I just put a picture up of these two, but this one is prompting an entirely different reaction in me.

Are those really heels I am seeing on that three year old?  Peep-toe pumps?

Perhaps these are just the very rich person version of dress up shoes, but I’m not so sure.  All the dress up shoes I am familiar with for little girls wouldn’t last longer than a minute on concrete.

So, let us just hope that these shoes were a very transient thing in young Suri’s life, that she took them off as soon as she got into the car/hotel.  And that this will not spark some sort of crazy high heel trend for the preschool set.

Because as much as we love our heels around here in the Manolosphere, I think we can all pretty much agree that heels on a three year old is just wrong.

Legendary designer Vivienne Westwood, normally known as the godmother of London punk and new wave fashion, had a much, er, different show yesterday.

Behold some honestly disturbing garments made for grown women: 



Somehow, I doubt the diaperista trend will catch on.

Monday Teeny Poll

Katherine Heigl, Josh Kelleyl and daughter Naleigh

In last week’s poll, I asked what you thought of one Mr. Kanye West and his antics onstage at the VMA’s, when he took the microphone away from Taylor Swift. A full 94 percent of you agreed that he is a complete asshat for what he did to the teenager. A very small percentage thought it was staged, but I’m in agreement with the asshattery contingent.

As for today, there is a lot of buzz about Katherine Heigl and her husband’s adoption of a special needs child from Korea. Apparently Katherine’s sister was also adopted from Korea, and she also wanted to adopt from that country. And I have to say, that is one of the sweetest family portraits I have ever seen up there.
