Why Heatherette Canceled Their Show: Our Reasons

Heatherette

We love, love, love Heatherette — even though their show is a glamorous debacle every year, and even though we're not always sure where to buy their clothes. Traver Raines and Richie Rich, the house's creative team, are nice, fun, energetic, and brilliant. Every season their train wreck of an exposition is the highlight during Fashion Week. That's why we are hit hard by the news that they won't be showing this February. They were supposed to show at Roseland Ballroom this year, too, which would have meant that everyone could have come, and the after-party would have been glorious. We're trying to find out why they've bailed (they "prefer not to comment," but we'll get it out of them — we run with the same gays, after all), but in the meantime, we've compiled a top ten list of reasons they might have called off the show: 1) They're only doing a "Cruise" collection this year. 2) They, like so many other small fashion houses, fell victim to great glitter shortage of 2008. 3) The only chaps they could find had asses. 4) Tinsley ate something. 5) Boy Meets Boy went back on the air. 6) A six-foot-eight drag queen has Richie and Traver locked up in a basement somewhere in the Village because she didn't get into their last fashion show, even though she WAS INVITED. 7) Lady Bunny ate Lydia Hearst. Totally kidding. She flossed with her. 8) Someone actually wanted to buy something from last season's show, and they had to figure out how to make it again. 9) Richie broke an axle. On his roller skate. 10) Their Amanda Lepore popped. Heatherette Cancels Fashion Show [Fashionista]

Boobs at ‘Jane’

Jane magazine asked girls to bare their breasts for a picture spread but canceled after a staffer mistakenly unveiled the identities of the participants. Jake Gyllenhaal and David Fincher had some "artistic differences" on the set of Zodiac. Phillip Bloch was not impressed by how Vogue's André Leon Talley styled Jennifer Hudson's thighs at the Oscars. Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselback got into (another) fight at The View, which ended with Hasselback (again) in tears. Graydon Carter and Jim Kelly hosted a book party for Kurt Andersen at the Waverly Inn, and a lot of media bigwigs showed. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are not looking to buy an apartment in the Dakota, according to a rep. Spike Lee hung out with Mayor Bloomberg at City Hall.
