I’m loving the simple T.
Rare Antique Vogueing Performance
This is “Elements Of Vogue” (David DePino’s 1989 Original Mix) – Johnny Dynell feat. David Ian Xtravaganza as interpreted for broadcast by a school of vogeurs including Legendary London Legend, Roy and Britain’s early champion of the form, Les Child. (That’s her shutting down the category in a platinum hair hat.) Front and center and stealing thunder we see the lovely and sorely missed, Fidel Field. A fragile creature we knew too briefly. May she runway in peace. All this madness is circa 1990-ish. Don’t be jealous of their beauty, darling, be jealous of their talent!
Now, in the words of your Master of Ceremonies, David Ian Extravaganza, “I’ll now depart by saying, ‘I love you all for loving me.'”

Ava Was Wonderful, But The Role Was Originally Mine
Like so many of my (almost) greatest performances, I was originally cast in some career making leading roles only to be replaced later because they didn’t want to go with an “unknown.” Here now a very rare clip from an early wardrobe test on Tennessee’s picture, “Night Of The Iguana.” Evidently La Gardner was doing some pretty thorough studying of this “unknown” because her performance was literally identical to mine on this particular take. If I had known I was teaching the Gardner to act I could have been charging tuition.
Just another untold tale of Tinseltown, kids. Now ROLL IT!
Lagerfeld Und Fruenden
Danke Paul für diesen Filmclip. Wir haben hier echt fantastische Modellierung durch die Experten. Gott segne youtube.
What About Gloria Swanson’s UFO?
It happened. She got real excited when some guests arrived and told her they had just seen a crashed UFO on Mulholland Drive while on their way over. She and a carload of fellow believers, hightailed it right over to check it out and finally confirm the existence of extraterrestrial life, but it turned out to be just a junked prop. Miss Swanson was very let down (and let’s face it, who wouldn’t be?) but she still got the pic. Is she holding a notebook and glasses? Oh right, the Scientist Look… G.S. – the gifted lifelong style maker, correct as always. This photo is approved.
