Karl Lagerfeld shot Vanessa Paradis for Madame Figaro’s May issue channeling my favorite darling and Warhol’s superstar Edie Sedgwick.
It’s not news that the Celine SS10 collection rocked the fashion world, but I still had to post this picture. Initially I was all over the clog thing, but after seeing a few hundred too many in early April I knew they would not be my summer shoe.. and the Celine wooden wedge is the perfect solution.
Craig Redman is a New York based artist, with whom colette has been collaborating to extract his character Darcel from his blog. For the first time now, we have an exhibition entirely dedicated to him. From May 3rd to 29th Darcel’s inner world goes meta with “And a miserable day to you too”, as he explores everyday trivialities through painting, prints, sculptures and, of course, movie animation.
I really did not like the Chanel 2010 Cruise collection, I found it lacked continuity, had a poor color scheme, and was extremely unflattering (even on models!) ….but it’s alright because John Galliano has swept me away with his Christian Dior 2010 Cruise collection. It combines all my favorite things lace lolita pieces, 60’s Jackie O suits, and glamorous sorbet colored chiffon gowns. Who doesn’t want to run around the world in these!

Ok, so it’s no secret that I’m a big Sex and the City fan ( mostly the TV series). I didn’t particularly like the last movie, however, it’s all about the eye candy wardrobes to apartments. I’m obsessed with Pat Field’s styling… the perfect mix of luxury, quirky, vintage and flea market treasures bringing to light a real personality. ( photo’s from WWD)
