Date of Production: 6/21/2010 (box cover); 6/22/2010 (credits)
Extras: The first disc had a fun, 16:46 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, some of the cast and crew providing insights for the flick and a bit of additional sex included. There were trailers, a popshot recap, a photogallery, websites, and a cast list too. The second disc offered similar extras, the second set of cast members getting their own 26:53 minute long Behind the Scenes feature; Alexis and Chanel getting additional compliments from what I heard. Of note was that this was again not credited to Chris Streams Productions on the cover but Jules Jordan himself, even the trailers to JJ's movies this time, but the movie credits did mention his company so who knows.

Audio/Video Quality: Fashion Fucks was presented in an appealingly clear 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Chris Streams for Jules Jordan Video as presented in the MPEG-2 format so common to standard definition titles (with 480 resolution). The lighting was consistently solid, generally limiting the grain and other visual flaws in the open settings of the house, no scenes going far outside the box in terms of centering on dark rooms this time (some even taking place outside, at least during the tease in a few cases). The composition of the shots was largely enhancing to the ladies though as they diddled themselves or took on various mopes using their feminine charms, the glamorized look of the Pretty As They Cum series used to a degree most of the time. There were no compression artifacts (the bitrate hovering in the 4.9 Mbps range most of the time I paid any attention to it) with the fleshtones almost always what I expected them to be, making this one the best "pretty porn with hard sex" titles by Chris released to date in some ways. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio (in 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) was a bit more basic with no separation or major dynamic range but I could always hear what was said and the music didn't interfere with my viewing pleasure.

Body of Review: Chris Streams has been a gonzo director for many companies over the years, his best work coming out of his distribution deal with Jules Jordan Video over the past few years. His latest release for them is called Fashion Fucks: Special Edition, a double disc title that plays out much like his glamour porn Pretty As They Cum series that I've reviewed in the past. The idea is to showcase a group of ladies that each get one scene apiece with a male, the mixture of erotic tease and hardcore fucking satisfying both ends of the usual dynamic that some call "couples versus rain coater" dilemma. With ladies such as Chanel Preston, Alexis Texas, Lexi Belle, and several others worth noting, my expectations were high that this would be a winner, the movie clocking in at over three and a half hours with the BTS footage rounding it nicely, I felt this could be another notch on the directors belt proving you needn't sacrifice quantity for quality. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Alexis Texas with Michael Stefano
Scene One: Lexi Belle, the very cute young lady spotted on the upper middle of the front cover, was up first on the first disc as she teased in her skimpy bikini by the pool. Her sweet ass was as much a focal point as her winning face and all natural chest, the light stronger than in similar efforts by competing companies. In any case, sexy Lexi waded in the pool and used some booze bottle in a frisky manner, the gal soon slobbing the knob of studly Erik Everhard, pulling down his trunks to gain oral access to his favorite body part. Her oral was fine and she enjoyed the way he orally reciprocated on her, Lexi loudly showing her appreciation as the waterfall behind them partially drowned out some of their vocals. All warmed up, they were next seen in a popular porn house location where they did more oral before the vaginal penetration positions were engaged, Erik diddling her with his hand to get her all juiced up. Lexi was an active vaginal rider and Erik drove her all the way he could (as usual), their mutual chemistry elevating the scene a bit even if the colors were somewhat saturated. The scene then ended when Lexi grabbed his dick and stroked him off all over her face, the facial satisfying her need for seed as the genetic juice rolled into her mouth.
Scene Two: Aleska Diamond, a curvy babe as seen on the upper left hand corner of the cover, was up next during a photoshoot where her black & white dress stood out in the living room setting. Her pretty eyes and full lips were ice additions to her full ass and lean figure, Mr. Pete drooling at the prospect of licking her ass held high in the air. Her legs were spread and her juices flowing, Pete slapping her rump before she teasingly blew him and jumped on his rod to actively ride his pecker vaginally. She moaned loudly and it took awhile for her to get up to speed but the camera angles and technical aspects enhanced their tryst a bit too. It ended when he rubbed out a nut of population pudding into her mouth and onto her face, the gal providing some welcome post coital head before the scene cut away to the next one.
Scene Three: Nikki Benz, the curvy blond lady seen on the middle of the left side of front cover, was up next as the last scene on the first disc. She was wearing a metallic gold bikini and stretching out on a custom made motorcycle, the gal lost in the tease until Mark Ashley joined her. She went inside to meet him, wrapping her lips around his cock to go to town, both of her hands needed to handle his whopper. She concentrated her oral talents on the head as her hands worked the shaft, a short titty fuck leading to Mark going down on her nearly as aggressively. The vaginal pounding she took showed her to be mostly passive, his penis size far too much for her to handle as actively as I prefer to see. She moaned loudly and made it seem a bit too "pornish" for my tastes, Nikki verbally coaxing him to go harder on her with some minor taste testing along the way by both of them. The scene finished up when he unleashed his seed all over her face and tits, Nikki cleaning him off and enjoying the taste of his semen as she licked it up, just not swallowing.
Scene Four: Alexis Texas, the deliciously curvy blond seen on the upper right hand corner of the front cover, was up next as a sexy cowgirl outside. She teased with a hat, short shorts, and crop top shirt, looking very much like someone from central Texas where things are definitely bigger AND better. The bright sunlight was an issue at times as it flared the lens but her down home girl look worked really well despite these problems. There was an amusing problem with some flies buzzing around her pussy but she looked super sexy teasing on the saddle in front of the cabin. The tease led to Michael Stefano, joining her, his face implanted onto her sweet ass to savor the aroma and taste of that world famous butt. The look on her face showed she enjoyed his ministrations, Alexis propping her leg up to grant him better access to start boning her like he owned her. She maintained eye contact with him and did ample taste testing between positions, Michael going back for more on a regular basis too. The yellowish tint was a problem and the bugs continued to fly around her, my belief that the manner in which he was servicing her made it all better for the most part. The scene closed up when she asked for his load of spunk on her face, Michael jerking off to give her a large facial as she smiled at him.
Scene Five: Brynn Tyler, a leaner but still very attractive young lady as seen on the lower left hand corner of the cover, was up next as she practiced her boxing skills. She was wearing some frilly white bikini styled pieces of clothing in addition to her gloves, posing from time to time as she slowly revealed her various assets. This led to Mr. Pete getting in on her sexy body, the couple orally stimulating one another around the gym equipment. He gave her a pounding in the various vaginal positions too, the gal pushing back to meet his thrusting member as he smacked her ass from time to time. She became more active a rider as the scene progressed too, the gal cleaning him off orally when he let her up to do so. Some of you may like that she kept her thigh high stockings on during the whole scene and others will appreciate that the basics were so well covered, Pete busting a wad of sperm all over her face and upper torso to finish things up.
Scene Six: Chanel Preston, the young lady featured on the lower right corner of the front cover, was up last as she paraded around in a black dress far too short for her. There was no pretense this time, the photoshoot elements seeming realistic as she worked the camera to prove what her publicist has been saying all along regarding what potential she has. Physically, she was as appealing as most of the ladies in the show, the close up shots showing she has a splash of cute freckles and a near flawless figure. What set her apart from some of the other ladies here, all of them far more experienced in terms of making movies at this writing, was her sex-positive attitude that jumped through the camera. Unlike so many of her peers, she was not stuck with a moper in this early scene either, lucking out to get studly Erik Everhard as her partner. He bent her over the round white platform to eat her ass, scoring her tasty pussy as well. Chanel spread her legs wide to give him better access, her respiration rate telling me that she was in her zone even before he reached his. Rather than let her slow things down with a blowjob, Erik started nailing her pussy in a few positions right away, building on the tempo as they continued with Erik taking short breaks to eat her pussy as her juices flowed. They kissed and she put her glasses back on, her ass reddened by the slaps he gave her haunches, his ending wad of spew rubbed out to her face for oral clean up. Nice!
Summary: Fashion Fucks by director Chris Streams for Jules Jordan Video had a decent amount of high quality material that will inspire numerous sessions of self love, the production better than the kind made for just a handful of fanboys admiring their flavor of the week performers to merit a rating of Highly Recommended. There was some serious replay value and the strokability did not hurt at all, the quantity of fuck for the buck nearly equal to the quality of the glossy scenes, a nice mixture of ladies giving it legs. In short, Fashion Fucks: Special Edition was as good as either of the released titles in the Pretty As They Cum series so far, fans of that series or Chris' general body of work surely finding enough to appreciate to make this a "must have" thanks in part to the performances by gals like Chanel Preston, Lexi Belle, and Brynn Tyler.
