Elle Italia October 2009

The title of this editorial is "Romantico Soffuso" starring model Anastasia Kuznestova
photographed by Carlotta Manaigo. I like the dreamy diffused lighting, cream colours and draped clothes.

Pretty In Pink

I think Kate Bosworth is so cute/beautiful and pink just adds to that.

Non-Colours and Exhibitions

Heading off to see the Norma Parkinson: A Very British Glamour exhibition at the Somerset House in London today. It's free (woohoo!) and basically a large collection of fashion photography. I am actually going there for uni (have to pick out a favourite photograph and explain why) but anything to get me out of bed on this amazingly sunny day is good.
Speaking of bed, I watched the infamous Valley of the Dolls yesterday and found it kinda disturbing but at the same time funny because some parts of the script were so crappy.  I was expecting more of a chick flick for some reason and t'is wasn't the case. My quest for my favourite chick flick continues....
Whilst sipping on my coffee with clumpy soya milk (mmhh delicious) I present to you the "Black and White" editorial with Anja Rubik looking tres ferosh, shot by Nick Knight for Vogue UK's March 2009 issue.
Oh yeah, and I really want those Alexander McQueen print leggings. Enjoy your Saturday everyone!

The Outsiders

From Flair Italy's February 2009 issue, shot by Beau Grealy and styled by Tasha Cain. I'm such a sucker for nostalgic 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s styling.

The Couture Roundup: Part Three

Valentino, Jean Paul Gaultier and Elie Saab.
(God I wish I always had the time to round up Fashion Weeks like this. It's Assessment Week at uni so I have loads of free time on my hands at the moment.)

I was really surprised when I saw the outfits at Valentino: they were not at all what I had expected from the label. The clothes seem almost too edgy for Valentino and the bright neon dresses are something I would rather expect from Versace. What do you think?

Off to the "enfant terrible" Mr. Gaultier: his designs were once again over the top and crazy (but he seems so cute and dope-y, anyone would forgive him for that), this time inspired by ethnic tribes, with feather, leather and pops of red or turquoise. I adore all the body bling that is in this collection.

And now to my super girly fantasy: Elie Saab. I had to restrain myself from posting every single nude, pastel piece here. All the soft colours, embroidery, tulle, chiffon, silk, etc. Two thumbs up, y'all!
