Swinging Sixties

I was thinking today, I wish I could go back in time to the sixties...

“Nothing happened in the sixties except that we all dressed up”

Dressing up is what make's life fun (:

Stolleys Law of Covers

"Young is better than old. Pretty is better than ugly. Rich is better than poor. Movies are better than music. Music is better than television. Television is better than sports...Nothing is better than the celebrity dead."

An Idea

“Take up one idea.
Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea.
Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone.
This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced.”


“Life is full of beauty.
Notice it.
Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces.
Smell the rain, and feel the wind.
Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
The only thing that will stop you fulfilling your dreams is you.”

US Vogue; Transformation?

So I have heard a rumour today that Anna Wintour is now the FORMER editor of US Vogue.... Apparently Conde Nast have forced her to retirement as she put dog food adverts in the publication. I definately dont think this is true but who knows ....

"The Wizard of Oz meets Predator"

A new edge of glamour was brought to us from Gareth Pugh, but still with a hard, tough edge. This was a very new experiment for the house as we had not seen this kind of glamour within past collections. Some thought he was out to scare, now it is clear he is trying to seduce. He's done it, without a shadow of a doubt & I absolutely Love it! Feisty looking material was used throughout, with many chevron looking shapes appearing... Pugh said, "dangerous women, that's where the chevrons come from, you know, theres alot of warning signs involving chevrons."
Alex box was the make up artist collaborating with Gareth Pugh. Gareth wanted to create a shadow on the face without there actually one being there. "I wanted to create a canopy," said Box. I think this was definitely created.
The collection was described as 'the wizard of oz meets predator', and 'art deco mixed with glamour & a tough exterior.'
I love this collection and i think all the factors Gareth Pugh wanted to incorporate into this, including the make up, was undeniably achieved. A whole new glamorised way of seduction has formed...

After a recent post touching on misogyny in fashion photography, I was reading through Vogue and saw this Dolce and Gabbana ad campaign. This is featuring, again, a model (in this case Madonna), crying and looking so vulnerable...

Some say fashion photography is dying; I dont think this is the case, it is the beggining of a new era. Fashion would not be fashion if there was no such thing as change...

Erwin Blumenfeld inspired image from a club culture shoot. Absolutely love this 50's Vogue cover

Alice in Wonderland

I am so damn excited to go an see Alice in Wonderland. I am ashamed to say, I have not yet seen a 3D film so I am quite excited about this...
The styling and make up especially looks incredible, you can see exactly why everyone is talking about it...
