Can you help me come up witha witty name for a celebrity fashion blog?

Here's the background: this is a project for a movie website. The blog will be pretty petty, each post featuring a photo of a movie star on the red carpet with some snarky commentary. Think Go Fug Yourself, Fashion Police, Entertainment Weekly style, etc. I need help with blog name, and am depressing myself with my lack of wit. The only thing I could think of was "Red Carpet Scarification," and that's a little, uh, wrong. Any clever name ideas? Bonus points for dirty double entendres.

Fashion Malice?

Sounds a bit like Fashion Police. I don't know - I'm an idiot.

Celebrity Dissection
Blood on the Carpet
Shooting Clotheshorses

...or any other oddly violent phrasing for celebrity worship Aztec style. If what you're trying to do is a sort of parody, that is.

I had a suggestion, but it's truly inferior to flog or re:fashion.

Please don't name your blog anything that ends with 'ista' or Red Carpet Burn.

And comment and tell us the final pick when you've chosen.

Thanks so much, everyone … I knew I could count on the crushing wit of ask.mefi to save me! I'll talk some of these over with my editor and see what comes out in the wash. I agree that "Flog" is crisp and clever.

THANK YOU!
