If there is one current fashion trend that I hate, it's the return of the leggings. There, I said it... I hate leggings. Women have fallaciously been wearing them as a substitute for real trousers or with minuscule bottoms for extra coverage. And if there's one thing I hate more than leggings, it's (gulp!) patterned sheer leggings. I'm certain they're masterminded by someone, allegedly a woman, who wanted to flaunt her legs but still conceal her nasty mosquito-bites or the "bekas kena knalpot"
scar on her calf.
But apparently, there's someone who loooooves patterned sheer leggings so much, she wore them ALL the time. It's none other than Julia Perez, who recently wept incessantly on national television like a genuine victim and swore she did not secretly leak those risqué lesbo-erotic photographs of herself to the public as a cheap publicity stunt.
Duly noted, Mrs. Perez.
Upper-lobby of Hotel Gran Menteng, Jakarta.
Nothing goes best with rose-patterned sheer leggings than a camouflage micro-mini skirt and a cubic zirconia bling. And don't worry Julia, nobody associated the dollar sign with you being a money-grubbing whore.

"Do you like my synthetic 100% nylon hair extension and false eyelashes?"
Julia struck a pose after a grueling day at "Laris 3" beauty salon and unleashed her inner "Playmate Of The Month" by donning a semi-transparent Playboy tanktop and a blue bra combo. And (again) don't worry Julia, nobody thinks you're a chick-with-dick even though you're still within 500 meter radius from Taman Lawang
looking like a certified post-op transsexual.
6th floor of Hotel Gran Menteng, Jakarta.
Julia pulled out all the stops for an impromptu photo shoot before she headed home in a fetching 'lil denim hot pants, a cute dragonfly belly ring, and a raunchy knit top that showed off her strong point: her rigid larger-than-the-average nipples.
Oh yeah, work the elevator door, Julia! Work it!

Someone told Ardina Rasti to take a makeup course at "Gusnaldi School Of Makeup in ITC Fatmawati" and for some reason she took the course at "Ju-On School Of Makeup in Kuburan Jeruk Purut" instead.
She may not have gotten the kuntilanak
role in "Terowongan Casablanca" but Mr. Shanker says she's the frontrunner for the hantu hostes bunting
role in Indika's next movie, "Kamar Mayat RSCM."
Good luck, Rasti!

It is an accepted fact in Indonesian high society that female celebrities start dressing insanely after going through a scandalous divorce. Titi, Tamara, Ulfa, we've seen them all wear some ridiculous eyesore at one point in their post-break-up lives. Now it seems that this disturbing phenomenon is afflicting the males as well.
Gusti Randa was so outraged when he first found out about his wife's affair with Soetrisno Bachir, he took a pair of scissors and cut up all Nia's daster
s. After he'd calmed down, he saw all the torn pieces of fabric and thought, yes, his wife may spread her legs for politicians more times than a Babylonian whore, but there was no point in letting the torn daster
s go to waste. So he gathered all the pieces of fabric, took them to the nearest tailor and had them made into a patchwork shirt, which he wore to his next divorce hearing.
Hmm... I wonder if Andrew Dougharty did the same thing to Titi DJ's entire Dior wardrobe?
