Fashionista Failures

Some others have been talking about gay's negative influence on the fashion industry.

I made the assertion that homosexuals dominate the fashion culture. I was right and to me that translates to major influence of the models who suffer with anorexia. I for one am not a name-brand addict so I could care less about the latest fashionista news and trends that these people dish out. But I found this disturbing listing of the major gay players in the fashion world. That's right all the big names, along with their history.

And then there's Austin Silver's humorous-but-true commentary which asks (and answers) the question Is there anyone straight in the fashion industry? A sample of the madness:

"If anyone ever saw a flamboyantly gay man walking down the street sporting a pink feather boa and sparkles over his eyes, they'd probably cringe and cross the street. But put the same gentleman as head of a fashion design collection and suddenly he's an "artiste" and not some gay Jose from around the way. If you've ever watched Karl Lagerfeld speak at a fashion show or the like, it would become abundantly clear that he's been sleeping with the enema on occasion. As well, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana of the famed Dolce & Gabbana collections could also receive the Oscar for bending over backwards (and I don't mean the award)."

The Columnist Manifesto discusses (a little old) the Bravo show Project Runway and the gay-straight-gender intersects that affect the women wearing the clothes of these brilliant but unbalanced people.
