AHHH...!!! MARIE CLAIRE US Edition PRO ANOREXIA!!
In a piece posted on Marie Claire's website Monday, blogger Maura Kelly took the new CBS sitcom "Mike & Molly" to task for "implicitly promoting obesity." The show focuses on a couple who meet at an Overeaters Anonymous group.
Maura Kelly wrote in a post titled "Should 'Fatties' Get a Room? (Even on TV?)"
"Yes, I think I'd be grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of fat kissing each other... because I'd be grossed out if I had to watch them doing anything"
"To be brutally honest, even in real life, I find it aesthetically displeasing to watch a very, very fat person simply walk across a room — just like I'd find it distressing if I saw a very drunk person stumbling across a bar or a heroine addict slumping in a chair."
"Now, don't go getting the wrong impression: I have a few friends who could be called plump," she went on. "I'm not some size-ist jerk. And I also know how tough it can be for truly heavy people to psych themselves up for the long process of slimming down. (For instance, the overweight maintenance guy at my gym has talked to me a little bit about how it seems worthless for him to even try working out, because he's been heavy for as long as he can remember.)"
"Do you think I'm being an insensitive jerk?"
Noooooooooooooooo baby! We adore you! you are a true example for the...skeleton addict!
More than 2200 people have commented on the article on MarieClaire.com, most condemning Kelly and the magazine!!
Kelly has since issued an apology saying she "never wanted anyone to feel bullied or ashamed after reading this" and "for whatever it's worth, I feel just as uncomfortable when I see an anorexic person as I do when I see someone who is morbidly obese." She said she herself had a "history as an anorexic."
Tuesday, Marie Claire editor-in-chief Joanna Coles defended Kelly.
"Maura Kelly is a provocative blogger. She has been extraordinarily moved by the thousands of responses she has received following her post about 'Mike & Molly.'"
Nooo!! wow!! Provocative blogger??? Provocative blogger??? great!! Joanna you are fantastic... Fashion Provocative Editrixxx! Congrat
uhmm... dear Joanna, you're a fan of Humor Chic??? do you want to work for Humor Chic? Are you sure, darling?

Jean Paul Guerlain, 73, a descendent of the perfume house's founder, was interviewed on French state TV last week, and asked about the creation of a new perfume, Samsara. He replied: "I worked like a nigger. I don't know if niggers have always worked like that, but anyway."
Patrick Lozès, of France's Representative Council of Black Associations, said the French word "nègre" used by Guerlain was an "extremely pejorative" and "racist" term equivalent to "nigger" in English.
Should we really get so worked up about a few words uttered by a super rich doddery old man?
For fuck's sake leave him alone, I've already told you how hard he's had to work to create his shitty products, at least let him enjoy them in his old age... can't you see he's finally understood how to test them properly for the sake of all of us... !!
But do it properly Jean Paul, una and down, up and down, up and down... that's right, keep going like that!

Want to become a perfect Skeleton fashion victim but you don’t know how?
Is your daily life boring and you feel the urge to make a change and shed all those extra pounds?
Never despair, Humor Chic loves you and is thinking of you. Carefully follow the decalogue to become a real skeleton victim:
1- Install an illustration from the Humor Chic I Love Anorexia series by aleXsandro Palombo as the screensaver of your desktop, cell phone, facebook or twitter page
2- Carefully check the life lessons of your favorite skeleton stars, Rachel Zoe and Victoria Beckham
3- Every day just eat a nice apple for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Make sure it’s always a glamorous red one, it gives the idea of substance
4- Give up screwing, real fashion victims never do it
5- Don’t dress up: cross-dress as if you were working at the circus or like a hooker or even better a true Brazilian transvestite... devastate your face with Botox and fool yourself you’re the new Lady Gaga. Believe me, it works!
6- Surround yourself with all gay friends and convince yourself the fashion is made up of nothing but gays. That’ll give you a real explanation for why men are not making advances to you
7- Fake lots of smiles at people who keep looking at you pitifully. Take a deep breath, you’re not ridiculous, you’re not a toad... it's just envy
8- Always repeat aloud: "I’m a fashion icon", even though no one ever thinks so and everyone will think you're a poor demented creature
9- Do a lot of yoga, it’s a great way to forget you’re hungry
10- Don’t drink water, an apple contains enough liquid. Replace it with champagne and lots of coke
11- Hang around outside fashion shows, and let all the street bloggers shoot off their flashes at you. You can imagine you’re Nicole Kidman at the Oscars and they’ll be your launch pad into the world of antimatter
12- Add a Humor Chic I Love Anorexia T-shirt by aleXsandro Palombo to your wardrobe and mix it arrogantly with glam pieces from Balenciaga, Balmain, theatrical costumes, wigs and whatever other crap you’ve got... and twitter all you can, I’m crazy!
Are you there? Are you sure? Greetings my love! Welcome to the world of idiocy and anorexia...
we adore you!

after yesterday evening’s Humor Chic scoop, the Maestro Stefano Gabbana blocked public access to his Twitter for quite some time and cancelled all tweet conversations with his Twitterfeed friend (Fabio Viscovo) that referred to you, humm, I mean Stella McCartney.
In the meantime, however, there was an intense exchange of DMs (direct and private messages) in which Stefano Gabbana filled in his friends on how he boobed, a real brouhaha of tweets, above all hoping to avoid sticking his foot in it again!!...
Well the ruckus finally blew over and that poor regular guy Fabio Viscovo wrote on his Twitter:
OH MY GOD! THIS IS THE ONLY THING TO SAY I FEEL RIGHT NOW!
OMG...I still can't believe it.
Well apparently due to the Humor Chic scoop our dear Stefano Bananas has stopped playing with his twitter and finally seems to have even remembered you, dear Stella McCartney....!!!
One last point my lovely friend:
you don’t have a cashmere sweater, do you? You know, one of those super cool unisex mises to give Fabio Viscovo because the poor guy hasn’t got one?
It would make him so happy
Love and kisses Stella
Below, for those who missed it, is the original conversation in Italian which Humor Chic has jealously preserved and saved for all lovers of the fashion horror genre…!!

On the twitter feed for Stefano Gabbana, aka Mr Bananas (the great talent of Italian tax evasion for Dolce & Gabbana) I read there was a dustup between one of her many desperate fans and Mr. Stefano Bananas.
What about? About dear Stella McCartney. OK, you’ll say, what does anyone care about that crap? Speaking personally, nothing, but dear Stella McCartney seems to, seeing now she’s become "Stella who? A nonentity..."
Desperate user - I LOVE Stella McCartney!
Stefano Gabbana - who ??????
Desperate user - ahahaha! You don’t like Stella McCartney?!
Stefano Gabbana - Who ????? The daughter of the singer ?????
Desperate user - Yeeees! Stella McCartney, the designer !!!!!
Desperate user – Stefanoooooooo, please !!!!! You don’t know Stella’s a stylist ?????
Stefano Gabbana – What’s she known for?? What’s her specialty??
Stefano Gabbana - What sort of style does she do? What’s so special about it??
Desperate user – She makes a lot of minimalist sequined dresses... ... .. they’re really feminine. They’re perfect for a nude look!
Desperate user – Come on! You’ve just got to have seen them! And although she’s really famous … she’s still an upcoming designer!
Stefano Gabbana – Yeah, she’s upcoming after 15 years doing nothing!! Hahahaha
Stefano Gabbana - Aaaaaaa ...... I see you appreciate nonentities!! Bravo!
Dear Stella, star of nothingness, and what do you think of the state of Italian fashion ...?
Au revoir chicest

Dolce and Gabbana accused of tax evasion
MILANO, Oct. 16 (AFP) - Italian prosecutors have accused the fashion house Dolce and Gabbana of failing to declare revenues of around 840 million euros (1.2 billion dollars), Italy's main business daily reported on Saturday.
Investigators have closed their inquiry against founders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, as well as five other people.
The allegation is that Dolce and Gabbana created a company in Luxembourg in 2004 and 2005 which was given control of the group's brands, thereby avoiding Italian taxes. The Luxembourg company, Gado, was in fact run from Italy
This is the real talent, we are speechless! Congrat!

MILANO, Oct. 15 (Reuters) – Following the collapse of the Mariella Burani Fashion Group (MBFG.MI: Quotazione), Mario Borselli, the President of Centrobanca and Chairman of the Italian Chamber of the Italian Fashion System and the former general manager Vitaliano D'Urbano, are under investigation, according to reports today from informed sources.
The pair are charged with fraudulent bankruptcy.
You heard about it first on Humor Chic! Now we look forward with trepidation to the developments of an event that will bring to light all the rottenness in the Italian Mafia fashion system. We hope it will duly punish these figures who are completely out of fashion and have wreaked havoc with real Italian creative fashion! Our gratitude goes to the magistrates in Milan. In our eyes they’re the height of fashion!

My dears, yes, something has happened that no one would ever have expected! After abandoning the scene with great éclat a few years back, Grandpa Valentino Garavani materialized miraculously in the front row of his own show. A powerful gesture, a moving, intense, heartbreaking moment... but why?
Simple — because he could no long bear reading the Humor Chic posts and seeing the complete hash his two dear pets were miraculously making of things season after season. And after he chose them personally and gave them creative control of the Maison, throwing out you know who (read here).
Dear Grandpa Valentino, do you think your presence will suffice to thrill those real women who still have eyes to see, nice tits to show off and a real ass to stick out? Not likely!
Do you think your pupils are improving and that a fashion show with a moving soundtrack will suffice to pass off that avalanche of boring chemisier dresses as brilliant and wonderful?
But it’s all too obvious and ideal, though it might suit a few antiquated bourgeois spirits or the usual three old dames in menopause.
Pray for your pets, dear Grandpa Valentino, because we’re past praying for you and have been for a long time!

Humor Chic gives grades on Paris Fashion Week - Jean Paul Gaultier, a donkey on the road to retirement
What does Gualtier want to tell us with his latest collection?
That when you become a donkey it’s time to drop everything and retire at once!
Enjoy your pension Jean Paul!

Dear John, you should never have done this, what the f*** have you done?
With all the goodwill and affection in the world we can’t account for the suffering our eyes endured at the sight of the new Dior collection.
Please, John, we broke the first egg on you, so you choose the next!
But please, no more such horrors, dear John...
When you see the style work of a true artist, a gentleman of ethnic metropolitan chic style, as the great Dries Van Noten has always been, one thing becomes clear above everything else: how humiliating it must be for those pseudo creatives racking their brainsto come up with a collection by copying and cloning the collections and ideas of others.
Or even worse by scrabbling among the old rags, a job that really suits some Italian pseudo creatives who for years have been busy reviving certain French Maisons... by peering through the window at them!
