No, your eyes do not deceive you: that is, indeed, Ellen Degeneres, who walked the runway during the Richie Rich show last night. Stylin’, no? We always enjoy a show that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and, perhaps predictably,Β this one has humour by the bucket-load, as well as some fabulous shoes. It also has some almost-naked male models, and trust us: it’s totally NOT what the words “naked” and “male models” in the same sentence would usually lead you to imagine. Take a look under the jump to see what we mean…

We’re in love with almost all the shoes. Not so much with the ruffles.

What happens when you leave your dress out in the damp all night.

Hey, it’s 60s Barbie, folks! (It’s actually Tinsley Mortimer. She looks like she’s enjoying herself.)

    WTF?! πŸ˜€

    On the fashion: I want someone to buy me that cute lightblue dress with the pink ribbon, all the shoes (especially those dark purple wedges) and the head accessories. I love those little feathers and veils! (luckily I have a wedding in the near future!)

    The shoes are to die for. On a side note, Richie Rich looks kinda like Sandra Bernhard.

    very alarming! i am most disturbed by the bikini + boots model’s blue glitter pubic hair look! what is that about?
    The only thing I liked about this line was the inclusion of Jujube (from Drag Race)! πŸ™‚ xx
