Fashion knows five seasons. Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter obviously, and: Carnival of course, starting just now! Suppose people all over the globe love dressing up; hiding behind loads of make up, jumping into weird costumes to look hotter or more creative or fun. Am quite torn on the Carnival subject: for sure love the uninhibited party mode (something easily achieved without looking like a clown), but definitely don't need a "theme" to have fun.

Was it "the '80s" or "GaGa" the previous years, I already recieved three invites following the hot theme this year: "Fifty Shades of Grey" (ding dong, get the latex out!). Great for the average carnival office party, can fully imagine your colleagues dressed as Mr. Grey (guess the color of the expensive suit) or Anastasia (oversized comfy pullover. Walmart skirt) nibbling on cocktails, of course all of them hiding all kinds of sex toys in their private parts. FUN! Well, since my disastrous "makeover" yesterday - aka gloriously full and lovely looking haircut and blow out meeting rain from hell, I decided that whenever asked to dress up, I would show up as a cat this carnival season. Drowned in alcohol that is. But for the theme lovers: I hid three stainless steel loveballs in today's picture. Spot them, and you win a pair of my high heels.

Happy Carnival everyone

Don't get me wrong ladies: Brad Pitt is hot. And considering the reactions of gals all over the world to the new Chanel commercial (deep sighs everywhere): he obviously sells as well. Am I the only one to not get it?

Whoever came up with the idea of rejuvenating the brand's (sophisticated) image by making the sexiest man alive look like some greasy (and very probably smelly) homeless person (yeah, makes sense to spritz some perfume here!): is just wrong! As it is to have Brad speak (we would have been happy to just LOOK at him, well - not in this outfit, but still...). To make matters worse, what he says is some weird stuff that basically only makes sense if you are eighteen and just ordered "Philosophy for Dummies". That's not inevitable, Brad, it's inevitably BAD! Worst of all: you keep your shirt on during the whole commercial!

I would have been happy with something more "Coco", classic if you like (yes, you may call me old-fashioned). A nice heel in the image maybe? Somewhere? Something which wants me to be the lady wearing Chanel No5, not some random chick staring out of windows and walking on rivers to the voice over of a grey man. Sorry, but can't help the idea that Eau de Toilet just got a little "Ewwww de Toilette".
