Vogue Germany January 2007

Finally I have found this editorial that has been at the back of my mind for ages because of those Balenciaga shoes. Yes, my mind has nothing better to do than to think of editorials from four years ago. No seriously, it doesn't. If laziness was chic, I would be on the cover of Vogue Paris (in theory).
The mind ponders if I could find them on eBay somewhere. Don't they look so fabulously badass?
Trish Goff shows them off pretty well me thinks, photographed by Stefan Indlekofer and Claudia Knoepfel.

What Makes An Editorial Pop

Okay, I will be the first to admit that I DO NOT love the clothes (styled by Lucinda Chambers) or the model (Patircia van der Vliet) of this photgraphic spread for Vogue UK shot by Mario Testino.
However the pale pastel colour palette mixed with splases of neon lime and yellow made me post these images anyway. 
It doesn't have to be the obvious elements which draw you to something, the most beautiful things in life are the little details (life philosophy of the day? Check.)

Pre-Fall 2011

I have to admit, what I have seen so far in PF 11 hasn't really blown my socks off. But then again, I should be working for a deadline right now arrggh.
Anyway here are a few not too shabby ones.

Celine- Philo's form of easy eveningwear was pretty rad.

Proenza Schouler-boyish knits, zippered blazers and grandma dresses. Me likes.

Balenciaga- although shot against a hypnotising background, there were still lots of eye catching prints and feminine cuts.

Oh My Amazon

I am too much of a Fashion Journalism kid to deny mself some nice thick coffee table books. 
With a little bit of Christmas and birthday money in hand I did the inevitable: go on an Amazon shopping binge. Being an all or nothing kind of gal has its financial drawbacks I tell ya. But hey at least they were a little bit on sale!
Behold my shopping cart:
Avedon Fashion 1944-2000
Admittedly, I am not as obsessed with Avedon as I am say with Newton, but considering Richard was one of the biggest fashion photographers ever, I couldn't resist.
The Golden Age of Couture: Paris and London 1947-1957
Based on the exhibition at the Victoria & Albert museum (and having flicked through it at a Christian Dior illustration exhibition at the Somerset House) I thought this would be an old-school glamourous little investment.

Okay, so maybe being an Olsen fan is a little cliched or done, but the interviews with John Galliano and Karl Lagerfeld were reason enough to get it.

Helmut Newton: Sumo
Even though it might be crazy to spend such an amount on a book, the fact that Newton's images are so timeless and iconic made it worth every penny.

Guy Bourdin: In Between

Although Bourdin might be big on the hidden sexual messages, there is something about his photography that to me screams stylish.

The Power Of Paint

Wow folks, seems to have been a long time since my last post. Holiday and New Year's,bla bla, chaos, so on and so forth. Getting back to the goods, looking through Fashionista's "Editorials Of The Year", I cam across this beaut from Russh #34. Yeah the fellow is a bit chavvy for my taste, but it's amazing what you can get out of a basketball court, some paint and two semi-nude people. I'll say Happy New Year to that.
