Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as seen at the Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse today.
The royal milliners have outdone themselves, fashioning a massive hat for Camilla made from her own hair clippings, which are ideal for basket weaving. Add a giant bow and you’re ready for the horse… races.
Camilla looks pleased to be in Australia, or she’s just passed gas.
Wearing a sensible wedge isn’t the norm for a supermodel, unless you’re Gabourey Sidibe, as seen at the Ebony Power 100 Gala at Jazz at Lincoln Center on Friday night, who makes it work!
Wearing a sky blue shift (courtesy of United Air Lines) with a daring sleeve to expose her worked-out arms, a delicate silver chain for that slimming effect, and lusciously shimmering eyeshadow that accentuates her cheekbones, she’s a model of perfection!
Which reminds me… have you secured your holiday ham?
Miss k.d. Lang was born on this day in 1961, making the birthday girl today’s Friday Face. A Buddhist, vegan, animal rights activist and Grammy-winning singer, k.d. is also a gay rights activist.
With one of the most stunning voices to ever spring from the Canadian wilderness, k.d. soared to fame after Roy Orbison chose her for a duet of his hit, “Crying,” for which they both won Grammys in 1989.
Here she is singing one of her hits with pure joy…
With Dame Edna… hilarity ensued. (It takes a moment for this to begin. Best line at 4:55.)
It wouldn’t be fair not to include their duet!
One of the most peculiar and compelling renditions of a Cole Porter song…to benefit AIDS research.
Miss Lang now lives in godforsaken Portland… the first and last time I visited there, it was closed.
For her beauty, courage, and for her birthday, k.d. Lang is today’s Friday Face.
