Fun with Whipped Cream

For your Sunday afternoon delight, CC provides a glimpse of the ridiculous in fashion.
It’s so trite, it’s become cliché – but that’s not stopping designers to have a bit of fun with some ingeniously placed circles...
The possible inspiration for this Spring 2009 trend?
Ali Larter, cleverly covered with whipped topping in Varsity Blues.
Of course, the human creampuff look has been spoofed numerous times, including in this not inoffensive scene from Not Another Teen Movie.
Not that you asked (or cared) but apparently whipped cream is too light for the kind of "hold" necessary for these shots, so it's actually shaving cream that was used on set in both films!

At the after-party, Agyness Deyn, who walked in the HOH show, was clearly not afraid to wear the trend off the runway!

With Halloween coming up, CC may be posting some more adventurous fashion trends . . . So brace yourselves for a wild October ride, darlings!

fashion has a fun and playful side to it & i love how this showcases that.

Sydney Speel said...

ali larter is the only person who could pull that off...

WendyB said...

The only appropriate whipped cream outfit is the one from the Herb Alpert album cover.

Farren said...

This post made me giggle. =)

clareassiral said...

with a body like deyn's what's there to be afraid of! I guess she can rock any runway look into streetstyle.

Juaи + said...

The HOH dress is really pretty, but is the kind of dress that will fit agy good only!

I loved that comparison !

Diana Coronado said...

Hahahaha, lovely !!

chuckles said...

This is a little bit raunchy. great Post though.

ryder said...

what si with the cream? i know that everybody was talking about that dress that deyn wore but... no. i think that even she can not work it... but on the other hand this model on the runway is spectacular!

Songy said...

adventurous indeed. Kira reckoned this is a typical 'what not to wear' number...:P I say.. why not.

POST VILLAGE said...

coco said...

Ha ha this has made me giggle. Those dresses do look like they were sprayed with whipped cream.

Diego R. Wyatt said...

CC I almost choked on my green tea...that was too funny! I love the Not Another Teen Movie spoof of Varsity Blues. I live for Agyness and the Rykiel look. Stunning!

beccajanie said...

i love your comparison. i am not a huge fan of those tops though - in otherwise great collections. They're just a bit too much for me.

La Belette Rouge said...

If wearing whipped cream it is very important to wear in a cold room. Happy to see no cherries on top.;-)

maveri_ck<3 said...

hahaha i loved this post, made me laugh outloud! I really dont like the whole whip cream on the private parts look... its funny, for sure but esp on agy that look is so bad!

Hunters Glory said...

Cool idea for a post....google Herb Albert's Tijuana Brass, "Whipped Cream & Other Delights" is another whipped cream picture that would fit nicely in your collection.

;)

The Lil Bee said...

Do you know this was on the other night at 4am? I was jetlagged and this was on. Hysterical!

♥ Marta ♥ said...

Interesting ....but a bit tooo much for me to handle, lol :P

Dana (MODAna) said...
