Bangle bangle///

Inspired by some of the recent runway shows where models' wrists were engulfed with bangles and bracelets of all kinds galore, I decided to give the trend a try myself.

Inspiration: From Marc Jacobs to Christian Lacroix


Jessica Stam for Vogue Korea

I'm not sure how old these photos are, maybe a couple years? But I really love them. They're so colorful and fun, it's almost kind of futuristic in a way. 22 year old Jessica Stam is working on getting her pilot's license. Interesting, right?

The Neverending Story

I love that movie so much. It's too bad that this Dazed & Confused magazine editorial is lacking. Apparently it was shot on the original set of the 1984 movie. I only like a couple of photos out of the whole batch.

Marilyn Minter Photography

The unusual method of painting involves many coatings of translucent enamel paint on metal to produce a luminous, and almost hallucinatory finish. Her photographs are all taken in order to create a painting, but sometimes she uses the photograph as is, without converting it.

More Couture///

I thought the Chanel show was okay. The best part were the headdresses of paper roses, camellias, leaf fronds, and feathers that adorned each model. Hairstylist Katsuya Kamo created the headdresses for the show. It only took him and six or seven helpers, three weeks, and two packets of 11 x 17 office paper. Isn't that amazing?

It's the details I love the most! Dior:

During this couture week in Paris, there are currently two questions going around; "What are your inspirations?" and, "And what do you think about the recession?"
For the first answer Mr. Galliano says his inspirations are "Flemish painters and Monsieur Dior,"
And, what does he think about the recession? "There's a credit crunch, not a creative crunch. Of course, everyone is being more careful with their discretionary purchases. I am. But it's our job to make people dream, and to provide the value in quality, cut, and imagination." Well said.

The Dior Couture collection was a beautiful blend of Van Dyck, Vermeer, and Galliano himself.

The inspiration, below. Van dyck and Vermeer:
