Humor Chic Wikileaks List - Hillary Clinton, love those bananas

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il is a "flabby old chap"

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin fancies himself an “alpha dog"

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev "plays Robin to [Vladimir] Putin's Batman"

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is risk-averse

French President Nicolas Sarkozy is a "naked emperor"

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is "feckless", "vain" and ineffective as a modern European leader" (we know this to our cost)

Afghan President Hamid Karzai is "an extremely weak man" and paranoid

Zimbabwean strongman Robert Mugabe is "the crazy old man"

"An attack on the international community."
So Hillary Clinton said of the first revelations by Wikileaks with publication of the U.S. Department’s secret files, adding that the U.S. intends to take a hard line against those who “stole” the information obtained by Wikileaks.
So what's so shocking about this information, which isn’t information at all but only pure barbershop gossip? Why get mad Hillary?
Humm, perhaps there's something you want to tell us and you’re frightened we might soon find out?
Maybe a question of bananas!

Humor Chic special correspondence - Kristian Laliberte, Vive La Liberté

With your tweets you managed to touch the heart of the most irreverent and original New York socialite (no easy task!). And here to fill you with joy, the delightful Kristian Laliberte has promptly joined us. It appears he can’t stand the idea of leaving that incomparable woman of style Alex McCord on her own to enjoy the throne all by herself. For those of you who missed the news, she had the good fortune to be crowned “Number 1 worst dressed woman" by Peter Davis, the most charming New York socialite there is (see the article in Paper Magazine). But always remember and take heed (in fact open your diaries and write it down) that Mr Laliberte always remains a true blue socialite (for which there is a rigid stud book which requires the most exalted gallantry). So he added a few names just so as not to eclipse and embarrass a Lady. (Mark that down and repeat it: this is something you never do ... Good). Especially one who has worked hard to be number one, and that’s saying something! Here are the other lucky winners!

The Worst dressed by Kristian Laliberte

2. Heidi Montag!!
3. Jordan aka Katie Price
4. Ed Hardy

Ahhh! Impeccabbile! a true socialite …
Well now if you have any complaints to make, kindly send them to the fabulous page "Twitter & Sex by Laliberte."
Thank you!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
With our greatest affection chicest

Humor Chic The list of the best & worst dressed New York socialites - Peter Davis, hats off to his eternal elegance

If we could rewrite Oscar Wilde’s comedy "An Ideal Husband" (though partner, lover or gay would be better) with the necessary alterations (many) and adapt it to modern times (with greater openness and broader sexual tastes), certainly he would be perfect in the part! Who are we talking about? Peter Davis, Paper Magazine's Editor-At-Large and style icon of the New York social scene! And who better than a charmant Sagittarian like Peter could draw up the exclusive list of the 10 best dressed New York socialites and the 10 worst dressed exclusively for Humor Chic 2010.
But in the second case we will only name the first. Why? Read on! Here are the juicy tidbits ...

Humor Chic The list of the best & worst dressed New York socialites
by Peter Davis

Ten Best Dressed New York socialites

1. Daphne Guinness: D-Vineness
2. Mark Ronson: Mod is Marvelous
3. Rachel Roy: An Indian Style Princess
4. Olivia Palermo: Perfect face, perfect style
5. Luigi Tadini: South American sexy meets urban cool
6. Georgina Chapman: The Cinderella of designers
7. Carolina Herrera: The Queen of simple chic
8. Carolina Herrera Jr.: Like mother, like daughter: chicness personified
9. Jackie Astier: Haute fashion with a punk edge
10. Minnie Mortimer: California cool meets Manhattan It Girl

Ten Worst Dressed New York socialites

1. Alex McCord: being on reality TV is bad enough, looking bad on reality TV is worse.

Ahhh! Dear Alex McCord has won big time. And he risks being all alone and taking all the credit for the worst, which strikes us as a bit too flattering. No, this is not right, and it will take a worthy following with a worthy host to complete the list with complete distinction. But who? And what if we were to ask the coolest and most irreverently stylish New York socialite of all time … The fantastic Kristian Laliberte – start by going to her twitter page and who knows what he will reply!

Humor Chic Culture - Pope Ratzinger Benedict XVI, Condom Chic

Pope Ratzinger Benedict XVI says that condom use is acceptable "In certain cases", in a book due out Tuesday, apparently softening his once hardline stance.

"In Certain cases, where the intention is to reduce the risk of infection, it can nevertheless be a first step on the way to another, more humane sexuality", "It of course does not see it as a real and moral solution," said Pope Ratzinger.

The new volume, entitled "Light of the World: The Pope, the Church and the Signs of the Times", is based on 20 hours of interviews conducted by German journalist Peter Seewald.

Interesting!... what do you think?

Humor Chic News - aleXsandro Palombo Interview for AOL StyleList

Humor Chic Illustrator Alexsandro Palombo Skewers Fashion Icons Anna Wintour, Rachel Zoe, Karl Lagerfeld, More

While most in the fashion industry would consider it blasphemous to speak ill about the likes of Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford, Alexsandro Palombo is building his career on making fun of fashion's elite through his racy illustrations.

The 36-year-old artist, who splits his time between Italy and France, has done everything from imagining French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld and Valentino on the toilet to having Andre Leon Talley play pallbearer at Karl Lagerfeld's fictional and fabulous funeral ("The greatest funeral that the world of fashion will witness," explains Palombo).

He also recently exposed some controversial tweets from Stefano Gabbana in which the designer called Stella McCartney a "nonentity" (read it all here) and has released a series of illustrations dubbed "I Love Anorexia" starring Victoria Beckham, spiny stylist Rachel Zoe, and Marie Claire editor-in-chief Joanna Coles, who has been criticized for publishing an article that speaks harshly of heavier people.

Just why is Palombo so fascinated with putting fashion world players in dicey situations? StyleList caught up with the artist to find out.

StyleList: You've kept quite a bit of mystery about yourself. Is your background in art or fashion?
Alexsandro Palombo: I move between both worlds. At 18 I went to Milan to study fashion design, but I was born with a gift for illustration. With Humor Chic, I've managed to bring together the two worlds of art and fashion.

: Have you worked at any major fashion companies?
AP: I've been a creative director for leading firms in Milan, Paris, and Hong Kong, devoting myself to luxury knitwear for men and women. The clients of the companies I worked for included Hermès, Bottega Veneta, Jil Sander, and so forth. I ended up being targeted by LVMH for some time. They mentioned me to the international press as a great talent to keep an eye on. But let's just say things changed and I decided to keep an eye on them and others!

: Did you ever have your own collection?
AP: From 1998 to 2007 at Milan Fashion Week, I showed under my own label aleXsandro Palombo, becoming the founder of the Italian avant-garde, but then I decided to devote all my time to my artwork.

StyleList: Why are you so fascinated with fashion world personalities?
AP: They offer a lot of scope in terms of vices, virtues, and vanities, and this becomes crucial when my pencil decides to capture and immortalize someone.

StyleList: Have you gotten any response from the people you've portrayed?
AP: Many messages and all of absolute affection. Out of respect I can't reveal who, but there are some who are still angry they haven't yet been immortalized.

StyleList: Who is your favorite subject to draw?
AP: I'm very fond of Anna Wintour, who is certainly one of my favorites, but Karl Lagerfeld and Valentino are no less. I think my first piece was of Karl Lagerfeld. I did it as shock therapy against boredom. I'd say it was excellent!

StyleList: Can fans buy your work?
AP: The launch of the Humor Chic T-shirt collection is planned for autumn. We've also had offers to collaborate from leading fashion brands and we're currently considering who will be our partner in developing a small and refined limited-edition capsule "Humor Chic for..." collection. It'll be fun!

StyleList: Can people buy your drawings or commission them?
AP: I get endless proposals for purchases and crazy requests from private dealers, but nothing will ever be put up for sale. But if tomorrow the Obama family were to ask me for a portrait, I'd be happy to oblige!

Humor Chic Society - George W. Bush, The Original Idiot

The former president appeared Tuesday in a taped episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to promote his new memoir “Decision Points.”
George W. Bush says he still feels “sick” that no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq, and that he should have landed Air Force One two days after Hurricane Katrina instead of viewing the destruction through the plane's window.

Ahh!!! Do you think that Geoge W. Bush is an idiot... or original idiot?

Gunn lives in New York City and is openly gay. He recently said in an interview that he considered himself to be asexual.

Asexual?!! What is asexual? In humans, having no interest in sex... ahh, a Spinster Aunt!!! It's good, TIM.. good!!

Humor Chic - In memory of Nicole


aleXsandro Palombo - Dear Debra, who was Nicole?

Debra Schlesinger - ...Nicole was a beautiful and loving daughter, my best friend...and only child. She developed Anorexia as she prepared for College at the age of 18. It started with a simple Weight Watchers diet, as she did not want to gain "the Freshman 15". This became the beginning of the end. She battled Anoreixa for 10 years and was hospitalized 8 times...

After she graduated from College with plans of preparing for Medical School, as she wanted to be a psychiatrist so she could help others with Eating Disorders. She moved home and took some time to heal, that is when she met her husband....Her Eating Disorder continued and yet she was able to conceive and give birth. Nicole was able to eat for her baby but when her daughter was born she started slipping back into Anorexia..more struggles only made it more intense for her. She could not fight this "monster" anymore.

My daughter passed away in her sleep at the young age of 27, 7 1/2 years ago, leaving her 2 year old baby behind......

aleXsanro Palombo
- A message to everyone?

Debra Schlesinger
- These are the facts!
Anorexia is the most difficult mental illness to treat.. It has the most fatalities of any other mental illness and continues to rise. 20% of young men and women will die from complications due to Anoreixa. 4 out of every 10 people will develop Anorexia.
Anorexia is not fun, not exciting and not a way to loose weight or to remain "thin". This is a dangerous and deadly illness...

Thank you Debra
All our deepest sympathy to you and Nicole's little girl.
