The European randoms who populate these things are so much more interestingly nutballs than our homegrown ones.

    I don’t know who that last dude is, but he’s my new hero.

    I think the woman in the 2nd picture is wearing a prosthetic half leg. While that is never an excuse for random crotch flashery, her new limb looks like a work of art.

      I think you’re right, BeanFug. That looks like bedazzled titanium near the ankle, there. It’s gorgeous! And if it’s the kind I think (a neighbor has one), it’s super to walk on, too, very comfortable and functional.

      She is. Her name is Viktoria Modesta. She’s a model, singer and amputee.

    But for Loreen, whoever she be, I am kind of loving all the interesting crackballsiness here.

    And WOW, Isabeli Fontana! On her, at least, I really completely and unironically love the fringed leather jumpsuit (now there’s something I never thought I’d be saying), and holy cow she is beautiful. I think we’re seeing the next Supermodel here.

      Next? She’s 29 and her first shoot for Victoria’s Secret was way back in 1999, she peaked a while ago.

        I knew someone would say something snarky about that. You’d think I’d learn… never be enthusiastic on the Internet!

          And wait, so she modeled for VS at just 16?

          I do not think that they should do that. Bad, bad hiring practices, Victoria’s Secret!

          They got in trouble for that IIRC.

        She PEAKED 13 years ago? Well. I guess she should just give it up. Life ends at 30.

    That last slide is pure joy.

    Did you guys see the photos of Hasselhoff posing with Jedward, our favorite Eurovision nutball twins? Those are hilarious! :D

    No. No, no, no, no, no.

    The guy at the end looks like an extra from The Fifth Element.

    I kind of love the first outfit. The fringe makes it more fun than merely slinky and sexy (and she’s wearing the hell out of it).

    I think Tim Gunn would suggest that last guy “edit”, but I’m so glad he clearly follows his own muse.

    Loreen looks like the creepy girl from The Ring.

    Wow…Europe is really coming for Japan in terms of sheer fashion wtf-ness.

    That’s not a dickie – ‘Loreen’ has white paint on her skin. She’s not wearing any kind of shirt or top under that jacket thing.
    Also, her stomach looks strangely masculine – the contour and positioning of the belly button looks more like a teenage boy than a woman. Or something.

    That last slide was awesome! In a totally WTF way haha. I don’t know what country he’s from or if he is even muscially inclined, but he needs to be his country’s Eurovision entry for next year.

      Awesome indeed. And I believe the boots are self-decorated with red duct tape…ballsy and economical!

        He looks a bit like Lekiddo, lord of the lobsters (look him up!)

    I thought the Eurovision winner was Bai Ling at first. That’s not a compliment to her outfit.

    The wig in pic 2 is brilliant!

    am i the only one here old enough to look at that first picture and think: LEATHER TUSCADERO!

      No, I’m that old, too, but she didn’t cross my mind. I like it even better now!

    That last picture got my first laugh out loud of the day!

    I’m Brazilian and not particularly fond of Isabelli Fontana. She was hosting a TV show that was a version of “What Not to Wear” (maybe still going on), but her absolute lack of manners and her bad communication skills were such, that made she look like a spoof on Stacy London. No respect, no class, no elegance.
    *But then, again, Brazil has delivered Gisele Bundchen, which always makes me think that (our?) supermodels have a huge gap where there should be respect, common sense and elegance.

    OK, the guest in picture 3 looks sooooo familiar…I swear she was on Germany’s Next Top Model (o m g and you think ANTM is funny???!!) but I can’t track it down. This is gonna bug me!!!

      This girl…I think I have seen her on some of the Sartorialists shots…

    You know the best thing about slide 2? The Sensible Shoes.

    Finally tracked down the lady in slide 2. Her name is Viktoria Modesta and yes, she is a below-the-knee amputee. I thought she looked familiar- she played the Snow Queen during the 2012 Paralympic Closing Ceremonies. Apparently, she’s known for highlighting- not hiding- her prosthesis and stump.

    I’m quite sure I had the shirt version of Picture #4′s dress back in 2001. I thought the peekaboo zipper down the front was incredibly sexy.
