discoamz: You have to watch this. It's the web video series Tyra Banks and André Leon Talley shot for Tyra's new website, TypeF.com.
reesespieces: I am only four seconds in and already committed. I have always wanted to know how to go from blah to r-r-r-r-rah.
discoamz:If only you were there for the behind-the-scenes look. But what do you think of their advice about how to wear a trench coat (which includes, but is most definitely not limited to, wearing it belted, with nothing underneath, or with the sleeves cut off)?
reesespieces: Oh, it is wonderful, and before ALT's suggestion I would have never thought to wear a trench coat to the beach.
reesespieces: Now I won't have to worry about sunburn this summer.
reesespieces: Because I can wear my trench coat.
discoamz: And we can continue to be very, very pale. That trench don't rub off!
discoamz: I love how they suggest dyeing it. Funny because I personally often think about how my bathtub is just so WHITE, you know?
reesespieces: I could watch them talk about anything — it could be like, gym socks.
reesespieces: And I'd watch a ten-minute video.
discoamz: Hahaha. It's true.
reesespieces: Just to hear what adjectives they'd use.
discoamz: Especially the made-up ones. Here ALT comes out with "kicky" when they're talking about high heels.
reesespieces: Oh wait, I just got to the bit about the dyeing.
reesespieces: Tyra actually says to make sure it's dye for clothing. Like, she actually felt the need to clarify that when you dye your trench coat, you don't use food coloring or something.
discoamz: I'm just glad they clarified the meaning of "kicky," which means "you're up!" according to ALT. I would have gone with "you're high!"
discoamz: You know, they left out the part of the conversation where ALT learns the term "manscaping."
reesespieces: Hahaha. Is that in relation to the bit where he just admitted he's never "been groomed down there"?
reesespieces: Because normally for me that's TMI, but with ALT there's no such thing as TMI.
discoamz: I just love them.
reesespieces: I adore them. I remember being so worried when ALT joined "Top Model" because I thought he might try and make the show serious/legit.
reesespieces: But no, he's perhaps the craziest judge yet. And so perfect with Tyra.
discoamz: You're crazy. How could you think that would be bad?
