Spanx for men are just back-to-front Y-fronts

ONE highlight of last week was the arrival of Spanx for men, heralded in the Daily Mail as the man knickers that “enhance the derrière’s natural roundness, and adds extra support in all the vital places.” Italian undies outfit D.HEDRAL commends to our attentions the “angle fit” technology, which took three years to perfect.

In Pictures: Dannii Minogue’s Project D Fashion Range

DANNII Minogue, the X Factor judge, unveiled her new fashion line Selfridges store in central London. It’s a clothing range called Project D. It was hard to see past Dani’s bulging tummy. We guessed that was the first clothing range for women who want to look pregnant. Dannii has a double “n”, double “i” and a pair of double “ds”. This new single D is a step in the right direction. Also there was DDaannii’ss designer Tabitha Somerset-Webb.

In Pictures: Lindsay Lohan For 6126 (Knock And Wait)

LINDSAY Lohan will not do porn. Lindsay Lohan does art and leggings. If there were a magazine called Tits And Leggings, granted, Lindsay would be a shoot-in for the masthead. But there isn’t. Yet. And this means that Lindsay Lohan is not a soft porn star. Lindsay Lohan is fashion model for clothing label 6126. Incidentally, Great Portland Street 6126 was the number of Old Mr Anorak’s favourite concubine, ‘The Dowager’, until it was raided and became a private pharmacy (knock 6-1-2-6 and ask for Meow Meow)…
