She’s got a British accent but she’s Russian. She likes to drive cars! She’s human! She’s nice! She’s real! She’s just like us! Got 26 minutes to spare? Check out this full-length feature of Aliona Doletskaya who celeberates 10 years of tenure this year as Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Russia. I love Aliona. I really do. Say what you want about the “baby Vogues” but Vogue Russia, like Vogue Paris, to me, is “IT”.
Month after month after month, she offers original content, she uses models for her covers and her editorials are very bold, strong and in your face. Just the way I like it. Soo refreshing from the sanitized, repetitive and dull “let’s get a blond actress promoting a movie and put her in a white dress” formula by the usuals.
I mean really, any editor who puts Natasha Poly on the cover two months in a row deserves her stripes, yes?
Natasha Poly for Vogue Russia covers. July 2008 shot by Mario Sorrenti, August 2008 shot by Terry Richardson.
The lovable JD (yes, he’s alive!) sent me this smashing photo of one of my favourite girls in the whole wide world: Olga Sherer. How flawless is she? She’s SMOKIN FIERCE! FEROSH TO THE EXTREME! One day I’m gonna have an I <3 BB photo from her to add to my collection. haha!
Editorials like the one below is the exact reason why Vogue Paris reigns supreme in my books. With no suburban soccer moms in their SUVs to cater to, the bold and fierce Vogue Paris Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld shows you what some North American magazines should’ve done a long time ago.
Click click click for more images. This editorial is mindblowing! THIS IS HOW YOU DO FIERCE! THIS IS HOW YOU DO FEROSHA!
Can you tell I’m totally enjoying my new moleskine?
Patience my readers and watch this space. No blogging until it happens in a few weeks… if it ever does! *wink wink*
Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart!
PS. Check out Alber Elbaz towards the end of this video. And to quote:
“Sometimes you know when I’m, kind of, on… on a hard day, I wake up the next day saying that i’m quite happy doing what i do because how many people have the ability to have a dream and to have a team of people around that realize their dream? that’s fabulous.“ - Alber Elbaz, Lanvin
THERE IS SOMEONE OVER AT BARNEYS.COM UPDATING SHIT ON THE WEEKEND! I SWEAR TO GOD I DIDN’T SEE THIS PAIR BEFORE.
SHIT. SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT.
I apologize for the expletives but UGHHHHHHHHH.
EDIT/UPDATE: OK. I NEED THERAPY. I NEED TO TAKE MY MIND OFF SHOES. I’M GONNA THINK GOOD, WONDERFUL HAPPY THOUGHTS. I’M GONNA THINK BB BAG IN BABY BLUE. I’M GONNA STAY AWAY FROM BARNEYS LIKE I STAYED AWAY FROM SEVEN NEW YORK ALA THAT RAF SIMONS SANDALS MAN. LADIES AND GAYS, THIS IS MY DESKTOP WALLPAPER. TILED!
Bloody red, I mean, bloody hell! The amazing people at Pierre Hardy and Barney’s are not making it easier for me anyone. Can I be honest here? Like, can I be totally, 104% honest? I loveD my metallic PH hi-top sneakers alright but I felt buyers remorse when I saw that stylish Parisian kid over at The Sartorialist. In fact, I don’t even want to wear them. I’m done, dunzo, done done dunzo dunzo mumbo jumbo dunzo with those damn metallic shoes.
I’m bored out of my skull so here I am, checking out the Barney’s website once and again. Lo and behold came these beautiful red suede hi-top sneakers and it has my bloody bollocking name stamped on it.
PS. I’m a size 41 or 41.5 in men’s or size 8 American. Thank you.
Feast your eyes on this series of photos courtesy of them fashin fags. From runway to reality, check-out Ashanti in a Balenciaga frock…
On the left is my girl, the one and only Natasha Poly werking it at Balenciaga.
Meanwhile, the incredibly chic and svelte Cate Blanchett shows you how to wear it properly.
Who do you think wore the Balenciaga dress best?
BTW I’m not hating. Like what I said, I’m an equal opportunity lover and I love everyone regardless of their size. However, some dresses, like skinny jeans, are simply NOT meant to be worn by women of certain body types. Look how Ashanti stretched the whole thing out! I can’t believe it! It’s Balenciaga for god’s sake!
Sometime last year, one of my female friends invited me to have coffee with her gay couple friends visiting from Los Angeles. I brought my ginormous Goyard blue croisiere at that time and one of the gays innocently questioned the authenticity of my bag (which is real, btw) by asking me “ayyy fiax??” (translation: oh is that fake?). Since then, the word “FIAX” (which is third world gay lingo for fake…pronounced as “fee-yaxe”) stuck in my head and I always laugh a little whenever I use that word because you should’ve seen the way he said it. There he was (hello Cedric I miss you!!), a big broly muscle mary man with an even bigger, brolyer, more muscular LAPD (yep) boyfriend, using the word FIAX… LOL.
Speaking of FIAX, check out these handpainted, made in China, FIAX Chuck Taylors. I hate it when people watermark their photos, especially retailers. Ugh.
Aren’t they cute? Come to think of it, everyone’s doing Chuck Taylors even Dior
friggin Homme and Lanvin have their own versions of the classic
American sneaker. I know I’m too old for shoes like these but at only US$38 (yep, thirty eight dollars!!! cheap!!!) per pair, sorry, but, I couldn’t resist! They also offer FREE international express shipping for all orders $150 and above so you can get your order in just a few days.
Click here, here and here. There’s more HERE. Look up “HVBAO” sneakers. Sizing is unisex (and European)… just use their size chart for the right conversion.
What do you think? Yay or nay? I think they’re too cute and I certainly wouldn’t mind lounging around the house in those.
