This door is a complete piece of shit. The police were called. Then there’s the real acting. It lasted almost an hour and started over an hour late (admittedly not their fault). It’s rude, rude, dirty and bad . The unspeakable is, over and over again. There are fat jokes, cocaine jokes, gay jokes, black jokes, women jokes, diversity jokes, French jokes, Italian jokes, Balenciaga jokes and many, especially the nasty KidSuper jokes. Given the extremely superficial nature of contemporary digital discourse, there are some jokes I’d rather not even name in this family of fashion record titles. This is usually extreme. It’s often a lot of fun. The room loved it. The rafters were shaken. And no one has ever done it before.
As a cue, KidSuper is launching his own version of a Netflix special tonight at the Paris Casino, featuring a couple of comedians and an actual Netflix special. The format is akin to a roast, whose main audience is brand founder Colm Dillane and fashion itself – well, the French. While the show wasn’t streaming — Dillane said he wanted to be able to edit it before release, just to be on the safe side — nearly everyone in the room was filming on their phones. Someone is bound to be angry. Netflix should really pick it up.
Since Lenny Bruce pioneered the format, modern comedians have combined free speech with fierce humor to say the unspeakable, anger the establishment. We’re only talking about the fashion world here, but Supe and his troupe pull off the same counterculture trick tonight. The absolute star is Tyra Banks who looks like a presenter in 10 in 10 and has no (as far as I know) elegance from 20 around the catwalk in Paris. Why has she disappeared for so long? She advises viewers, fascinates with her time modeling in Paris and why she left America at the time (clue: racial prejudice), and is particularly lyrical in a pink illustrated trench coat with an empire belt , looks slim even after packing. Weight during covid.
Who else? It’s getting late, the show is really
late, and there’s more to file, but in short, Jeff Ross is the most deliciously filthy character out there One, and launched the Balenciaga collection which set the tone. Yvonne Orji speculated that as a black woman on a show with an all-white male comedian, she was a diversity employee (and that was before she knew Banksy’s character). Stavros Halkias reveled in easily being a max-size model anywhere this menswear season (note to colleagues: anyone doing a body-positive audit must include this brand) and said something genuinely inappropriate about his enduring attachment America’s Next Top Model . Tyra held it to her chin. FARY is French, and he’s one of the funniest people – even if many of you don’t understand his material. Closing actor Andrew Schulz’s routine around Alexander Wang was enough to give publicists a recurring nightmare.
The appearance could be described as accidental, but of course it is not. Kiss handbags and jackets, embroidered suiting, tightly-paneled tracksuits by Halkias, illustrated shoes and jewelry by Francesca Amfitheatrof (which you can barely see) were all vital extras at the show, just like last KidSuper Show the same, different. KidSuper is a joke. get it?
