Giulietta degli spiriti

Giulietta degli Spiriti was Federico Fellini's first film in color. The surrealistic imagery and wicked illusions created only by the master of fantasy and baroque himself, Fellini, were made even more exquisite by the set and costume designer, Piero Gherardi. Along with Giulietta delgi Spiriti or "Juliet of the Spirits" in English, Gheraradi also designed the sets and costumes of Fellini's "La Dolce Vita" and "8 1/2". A film must have meritorious costumes in order for it to foster and blossom into a classic. The film itself is a luscious trip, delving deep into the fascinations and imagination of an eccentric 1960's housewife. It's a lot of interesting than one might think, with the hallucinatory flashbacks, modern day prophets, and sinning spirits.

Part of the finale, and one of the best parts of the film:

Princess Natalia

I love the kind of color that is saturated and brimming with an abundance of emotion. The emotion is attached to the color, thus, jewel toned blues, purple, and reds stimulate an out of body, other worldly feeling. Long and vibrant red hair, fingers abounding decadent rings, tiaras fluidly dripping; placed upon a magical mess. The almost malicious gold boots complete the square.

Solve for X. Natalia Vodianova + Vogue Paris (April 2010) = X. X = this:

Lost in weirdness/Daily weirdness

Sometimes the goal of the day is to find something so off-the-wall weird, that it's enchanting. To that, and to this day, I say mission accomplished. I'm not really sure what this is - whether it's a some kind of make-up artist's project, or something completely different, but it came from reed+rader. Enjoy this state of abnormality!

Clear to me

The classically disgusting jelly shoes that re-emerge every spring/summer season are haunting my dreams. Despite the sticky foot sweat that inhabits each pair; the slipping around on the concrete streets that accompanies it- I have decided I must have a pair. But not just any pair. I want clear, Cinderella, glass-like slippers to encase my flat and pedicured feet.

These heels by Maison Martin Margiela are even better. They, however, are made of glass and sold by the shoe rather than by the pair.

Salvador Dali's Hats

Dali: One may know him as an artist of all sorts. His repertoire includes drawing, painting, film, sculpture, and photography. But were you aware of his collection of grandiose hats? Dali often wore imaginative hats; from Rhino's horns to Pa de Crostons bread.

I've been polyvoring lately. Lately:
Peculiarly, my mood is more an unfamiliar nude than black. Inadvertently, I've chosen other means of liberating my creativity than this blog. Perhaps things will change... Maybe they won't.

Accessories at Chanel F2010

What I loved most about the latest Chanel show were the frost-bitten accessories. There was more fur than ever, as well as more icicle-like baubles that spread across the span of model's whole hand. The classic quilted bag was expertly frozen to look like it belonged to the ice age. On the whole, the accessories were a glacier of decadence which represented moving forward and having fun. Global warming, be gone!
