Since I've been coming across so many awesome editorials lately (and yet, a lot of underwhelming ones) I couldn't help but post another today. I came across this one by aimlessly skimming the "Party Lines" section of through photos and quotes of guests from the Museo Del Barrio Gala. I found the following photo/quote by guest Grace Coddington:

Sooo naturally, I found the editorial which, it turns out is from the December 2003 Vogue issue, and none to my surprise is absolutely amazing and impressive, if only in terms of the amount of talent captured in (Nicholas Ghesquiere, John Galiano, Olivier Theyskens, Viktor and Rolf, Marc Jacobs, and many more, and of course Natalia) and behind (the great Annie Leibovitz) the scenes of each page. It's also amazing to think of a time when Natalia Vodianova wasn't famous enough to grace a cover, considering her almost household-name status.  Honestly, I don't think it needs much more of an introduction than that, so here it is. Enjoy! (oh and click on the photos to enlarge)

Ease-y Breezy

Hey guys, so I started my "editorial of the week" segment quite some time ago now... But no worries, I'm back on track and this post is the re-start of "editorial of the week".

I found this editorial shot by Craig McDean for Vogue Italia (naturally) while searching the FashionGoneRogue site months ago and was attracted initially by the pieces (almost all of which I would have no problem warmly accepting into my wardrobe... Celine, Michael Kors, Balenciaga, Miu Miu) which were styled in I suppose my favorite way, that sort of casual, unassuming, un-styled manner. Which perhaps I often respond well to because it translates a bit easier (or at least for the more conservative of us) into real-life dressing.

Also, the feel of the shoot: very simple in terms of accessories and make-up, yet the mussed hair, slightly greased bare arms and legs, and the slouchily sexy poses give it a really interesting look. I also love the seventies feel in terms of the furniture and the platform mules with little white socks. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that it features one of my favorite faces, Hanne Gaby Odiele.

Back for realsies.

So sorry to the five or six of you who read my blog (Dani, George, Jeremy, I'm talking to YOU) for being so MIA, I've been busy the past few months with work, school, and trying to figure out my life a bit. But I've been itching to write about a lot of great things I've seen, read, and heard about lately so I'm back for real. Hope everyone's well and ready for some posts later today!

"I drove through the hood in my electric wheelchair"

The following is what New York Mag called "a sad and violent short film" created by and starring that crazy South Africans rap crew Die Antwoord and directed by Harmony Korine (of Kids, Gummo, and Mister Lonely fame). If you know anything about Die Antwoord, you know how strange, over-the-top, and unpredictable they seem to be. The only problem is deciding whether or not you think they're for real. In any case, they've made something really strange and beautiful with Korine and I suggest reading the accompanying New York Magazine article before or after watching the 15-minute "fok-ing" awesome mini work of art. As always, enjoy.

New Thing!

Hey guys! So aside from being my first post in a quite a while, this is also the first post of my new weekly segment, Editorial of the Week. If I could only tell you how many editorials from every magazine from RUSSH, Vogue, Numero, to Dazed & Confused and Elle I have bookmarked and saved in folders all over my desktop (could this be the reason for my last MacBook's untimely passing? I suppose we'll never know...) and for what? Well for inspiration I suppose, and just to... look at I guess. But then I thought it would be nice to share with you my favorites, because it's such a great feeling when you find something on a blog that you ALSO love and find inspiring, etc.

Sooo here's my first choice. This one actually, is not from my archives, but one I just found today on Cartoon Styles, one of my favorite places to find editorial pictures besides Fashion Gone Rogue (which continues to blow my mind... how do they get every single editorial, campaign, and photo shoot on there??). This one's a photo shoot featuring Maria Flavia shot by Billy Kidd. I'm not sure what publication it was for, or who she's wearing, but I am sure that I love it. It may be because I have a soft spot for black and white photographs, but also because I am also a sucker for natural beauty, and un-fussy, au natural-style shoots. The model is of course lovely and beautiful, and the expressions Kidd captures are pretty great. Although I assume that this wasn't a fashion editorial per se, I do also love the simple idea of layering the varied nylon undergarments as a sort of quiet style statement, understated enough so all the focus is still on Maria.
