I have no clever caption to offer but merely make the observation that it is pretty weird for a woman who presumably loves Africa and supports its artisans and artists to be prancing around in real and fake African animal skins. If I was said African artisan I would feel she was taking the piss.

Also check out all her pointy winklepicker 1980s shoes..

Don't bother going on safari to Africa. There's not a lot left!

Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Vil, if she doesn't scare you, no evil will.

So, that's where the entire wardrobe from "Coming to America" went!

Flintstones wardrobe now up for auction

The Buzz said...

I guess there's a new look for the cougars out there... running upstairs to change out of my zebra print shoes!!

i am a douche.

Jools said...

I went to the original article for context. Is it better or worse that they refer to the his and her closets as 'hunter and hunted'? Yes, his side of the closet is filled with camo hunting attire. And yes, I could have lived without that context.

Flinstone complex?

And how apropos is her last name!

Of course, pack my gun!

I will no longer have any guilt over my two measly vintage fur collars... holy shit, that's frightening.

Wolfe denied entry to game park. The uproar was heard for miles.

Naomi@ThirteenandSouth said...

Yikes. Wonder if she has a room to display all the animal heads? A bust room?

TGIF lady!! Does it feel like Fall out there? I plan to sip some hot cider and rum :)

The Buzz, Jools, Angie, Caroline, Kristen - Hello to each of you and welcome to this deliciousness!

Raina Cox said...

Jeannine - That photo of BAXTER! is beyond adorable. Dumplings, you all should click to see the cutest lion ever.

Cashon&Co said...

omg. i am laughing SOOOO hard at some of these witty captions above!!! genius girls!
my faves are from Kerry, Brismod, Sanctuary Home, Bromeliad ,Kristen & Camilla.
You guys are hilarious!!! I can't top anything already said here. I'd try, but the only thing I can remotely conjure up is that the only person truly jealous of this closet is Jocelyn Wildenstein. And I mean that seriously.

sorry I have no smarty pants caption. May I vent as am overflowing with....loathing?

Shame on them for raping, looting
and plundering Africa. Anyone who owns a kigango (the wooden sculpture thingy behind the eames lounger) is a cultural vampire.Those things symbolize the spirits of our ancestors.

all that nice sounding talk about sustainability is poop talk.
