Fashionista by Jimmy James

Above: No one ugly allowed.

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I’ve just returned from Greece after attending Fashion Forward in Thessaloniki. This song was played over and over before each show and for some reason I thought it was something penned by Larry Tee and didn’t know who was singing it. But I just realized it’s a new-ish (not sure when it came out) song by my friend Jimmy James, the performer famous for imitating the voices of countless stars such as Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Cher, Dolly Parton, Marilyn Monroe et al and back in the ’80s appeared on many US talk shows dressed as Marilyn. The lyrics to this song are rather amusing.Coming Soon: My coverage of 080 Barcelona Fashion, Fashion Forward Thessaloniki, and Capital Fashion Week in Brasilia (I leave on Tuesday).
