With Which I Cannot Keep Up and I'm Not Even Actually Doing Anything But Sitting Here Gawking

Johnny at the General Idea show last Friday. 
asdfghjkl asdfghjkl asdfghjkl. 
Also: Wow.

OK, um, yeah, so I was complaining just a wee bit petulantly last Friday that there was sort of a lack of good Johnny pics thus far from Fashion Week and somebody ought to seriously do something about that and so the gods whose job it is to handle complaints and returns and refunds and stuff like that (I always picture them like the afterlife case workers in Beetlejuice) apparently squinted and frowned at my complaint, looked up at each other with raised eyebrows (not sure if they had X's on them) and then responded enthusiastically with enormous amounts of irony and an absolute avalanche of photos under which I have been buried since Joey Camasta first casually tweeted a shot of Johnny on his way to the General Idea show around 11:45 a.m. Friday.

Sweet Weirsus.

Gallery after gallery after gallery after gallery, and then from those, tumblr after blog after tumblr, plus twitpics and lockerz and yfrogs oh my, and now I'm like under my desk breathing into a paper bag and pretending I don't even hear the texts coming in to my phone ("OMG BINKY HAVE YOU SEEN THE SHOTS BY ANDREW WERNER ASDFGHJKL I'M DYING TEXT ME BACK").

We went from the poverty of three blurry twitpics to an embarrassment of riches in the time it normally takes the Starbucks at my Target to understand that I want need a tall in a grande cup in order to accommodate the ridiculous amount of extra whipped cream I want need to plow through yet another gallery someone just linked me up to.

So... erm... thank you?

And thus I've crawled out from under my desk, squared my shoulders, and decided to just offer my favorites plus links to some galleries because gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

And we've still got Chris Benz today and Betsey Johnson tonight (livestream at 6 pm EDT!), Indashio tomorrow (livestream at 9 p.m. EDT! Here and here!), and The Blonds on Wednesday...

So here's a recap of our insanity to date:

Thursday. FNO.

After I whined, the very kind Elizabeth T. Lara 
took pity on me and tweeted me the link 
to her yfrog gallery from the FNO event 
at Louboutin World. Love this pic, 
in which my dream came true and the lovely lash lady 
MOVED OUT OF THE WAY so we could 
SEE HIS FACE. More pics from Elizabeth here.

This fabulous pic comes from Lucas Blue's tumblr
(OMG Ice-T from SVU was there too! Love him.) 
And more FNO photos here.

Friday. General Idea, an eDressMe moment, and Boffo.

11:48 a.m.
The pic tweeted by MAC's Joey Camasta.

At the show. 
Absolutely glorious photos from Andrew Werner 
posted on OutSpokenNYC (how did I not know 
about this blog until now? Their tagline: 
"The six gay best friends you don't know yet." Love them!) 
Click, click, click on Andrew's photos to get to the full-size images
 because THEY. ARE. HUGE. Like LIFE. SIZE.
(Also: Note Tara's amazing shoes...!)

1:52 p.m.
Pic tweeted by Johnny of him with General Idea's 
creative director, Bumsuk Choi.
See tons of General Idea photos in the Life gallery 
(in fact, see tons of photos from everything Johnny 
in the Life gallery. Have fun. See you next year...)

5:37 p.m.
Johnny stops by the eDressMe office. 
Pic tweeted by eDressMe's @NatFierce.
More wow.

7 p.m.-ish.
Depesha party unveiling Nicola Formichetti's pop-up store 
in the Boffo Building in Tribeca. 
More pics on Newscom (search for "Boffo").

Saturday. Asher Levine.

8 p.m.-ish.
Photo tweeted by Eric Alt of 
"@JohnnyGWeir and his fierce new look @AsherLevine's show."

Photo tweeted by Tara pre-Asher's show:
Eric, Josh, Tara, and Johnny.

Backstage, tweeted by @Thequestforit.
Lots more Asher pics here, but they're tiny and even if 
you pay the subscription fee, they're still ... tiny. 
And watermarked. Sigh.

Sunday. Timo Weiland.

8 p.m.-ish.
OK, Life, Getty Images, and Zimbio 
all have tons of pics from this show. 
But this one, tweeted by Eric, is my absolute favorite. 
"The Fab Fab Fab @JohnnyGWeir on his way to @timoweiland."

Bonus pic! Exclusive from Super Managtress Tara 
backstage at Asher Levine Saturday night.
Uncapped version here.

Great, great blog as always. Despite having seen most of the pics already, it doesn´t hurt to see them again...and again...and again.

I love the red/white outfit on Johnny. It really looks fabulous.

In case I haven´t mentioned it...I also love the captions you add to miscellaneous pics. It always makes me laugh.

Thank you again for a great blog.

Johnny is camera candy (eye candy for a camera). Thank you, Binky, for gathering these together.

"Like the afterlife case workers of Beetlejuice" and "now I am under my desk breathing into a paper bag...." love your gift for words and phrasing.

If it's Sunday, we're probably Tara, Eric, Joey, and Johnny keep their schedules straight would take a spreadsheet.

Such fabulous hair styles! I love, love my beautiful , "younger femme sister's" audaciously unique fashion statements.

Thank you, again dearest Binx, for bringing us such splendor. You so rock!

Comment from Robin aka Princess Johnny-Love, who can't access commenting RN cuz she's on vacation....

"so, the one thing that really stikes me from looking at all these beautiful pics of Johnny at Fashion Week is his style.

"yes, Eric is freaking amazing and does his hair and someone . . . Joey i think? did his makeup, but we all know Johnny has definite ideas about what he wants and how he wants it.

"and so i'm sitting here looking at picture after picture of Johnny doing his own individual starshiney style thing and always completely OWNING his outfits . . . and the one thought that comes to me is:

"he MUST do his own fashion line.


"because i'm dying to see what comes out of his head - what he creates - when he does a line of more than evening dresses. and i'm really REALLY hoping i can afford to buy it.



"p.s. and i also love love the happy look in his eyes! ♥"
