Attire Satire

If you missed the Met Ball and care to know what that was on Madonna's head or how much lace had to die to make Mary-Kate's dress, then go to, oh, just about any fashion website. If, on the other hand, you missed the Met Ball and don't have a burning desire to know the red-carpet ins and outs, then WWWWD will give you all the news that wasn't. That's because it's a fake fashion trade paper, but a hilariously wicked fake fashion trade paper, in the way The Daily Show skewers politicians—which might explain why WWWWD's logo is a backward CNN logo. And like CNN, they even have a Tweet feed (but very, very fake), with status updates like "BetseyJohnson: dropping 3rd hit of acid 2nite! drugz r so weak these dayz" and "MTESTINO: @gwenyth's place. blaming my farts on apple. must quit cheese." Not even Andre's capes are safe from video parody.

WWWWD used to be online, but it's a biweekly e-newsletter only now, so sign up on the site. Here's hoping there's still a sense of humor in fashionland...
