Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2003

28/06/2008, Fashion and Style

I need your help.

It’s not often that I call for the collective powers of my readers but I am in desperate need of your help. Watch this video of the Spring/Summer 2003 Christian Dior show. Fast forward to 6:50 and listen to the track “Controversy” by Prince. I NEED that remix. I MUST have it. This is a life and death situation we’re talking about here. I’ve spent 8 hours today trying to find it online to no avail. I think the remix is by Felix Da Housecat but I don’t know. It’s definitely not the original track, that’s for sure. Please, for the sake of my sanity, help me get a copy of this track.

Check out the model on 7:00. That is HOW you do FIERCE. Also, Jacquetta Wheeler should fucking get an award for being able to walk in those heels in spite of the chain dangling from her shoe. Has it really been five or six years since that show? Time surely flies fast these days.

Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2003

I swear to god, watching old Dior shows on YouTube give me the chills every time. Every bloody time! That’s why John Galliano has a special place in my heart. Growing up as a teenager, John was the be-all and end-all of fashion. NOBODY else mattered to me AT THAT TIME. Well, it was John and Tom Ford for Gucci LOL. I’d religiously buy fashion magazines just to see what the two of them were up to. Yes I had the eskimo boots from the Fall 2002 collection where Gisele came out with the woolly centurion hat. Yes I had the saddle bags, the monogram jacquards, and yes, even those rasta bags. Even those tops from 2001 I shared to you earlier this year. It was full-on, hardcore, logo a gogo fashion victim mania but hell I had fun. Those were the years when I would save literally EVERY penny I had (and then some) just to be able to buy those damned “J’ADORE DIOR” sleeveless tops in every imaginable color combination and fabric because that’s all my victimy self could afford. When Dior announced last year how they are turning their backs to the very same crowd that kept them afloat over the years (the young, the bold and the restless), naturally I felt sad – that’s my childhood right there! No wonder all of the recent Dior collections are too sophisticated and too mature. Other than Carla Sarkozy, who else is wearing Dior?

The good news is… the things I like and what tickles my fancy have definitely changed over the years. I appreciate the work of more and more designers.

Enough babble. Will someone please find me the song, for old times’ sake? Thank you.

Countdown to Couture

Countdown to Couture

Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 haute couture show season kicks off on Monday and I have my eyes on Alessandra Facchinetti who is Valentino’s successor, Christian Lacroix, and of course,  John Galliano for Christian Dior.

Remember his brilliance back then? Christian Dior Spring 2004 Haute Couture… you may be gone but you are definitely not forgotten.

Now is the time to place your bets. What do you think the chances are of John still being stuck in the 60s? Redeem yourself John. Please!

Gucci Spring/Summer 2009

Thanks to Frida Giannini's latest menswear collection for the House of Gucci, my (long gone) youth literally just flashed right in front of my eyes.

Gucci Spring/Summer 2009

It's like Lisa Frank all over again! Remember the days of Lisa Frank?

Lisa Frank Stickers

Back in the good ol' dark ages, we didn't have cellphones, ipods, myspace, facebook, Miley "HALE NO" Cyrus and Zac Efron. But we did have Lisa Frank + Sweet Valley Kids/Twins/High/University/Magna/Slambook +
Teen Beat/Tiger Beat/Bop/YM + Clueless + Brad Renfro (who, btw, started my sexual awakening) + J Motherfriggin
TT + Andrew Keegan and of course, Larisa Oleynik.

I have one thing to say. Clueless >>>>>>>>> Mean Girls. Ok fine I have to stop. My true age is starting to show.

Fashion Television: JD Ferguson

It's about bloody TIME somebody does a video on my man, the "king of helping people out", Ms. JD Fergusssssson! He thought he looked like a tool on cam… I totally disagree with him! I've known him for ages and although we haven't met, I think he's a fun guy who is spontaneous, always on the go and full of energy! He's definitely cool… I looove JD and hope to hang out with him soon. Can I be your ass-istant? OMG all the male model madness! Hahaha!

Check out the way he walks. I spy with a Fendi spy a man who hasn't recovered from an all-night bump n' grind spree. Just kiddin. Sooo cute!

Sean Avery for Vogue

Sean Avery for Vogue

Isn't it funny how pro-hockey players are granted fast-track status when it comes to Vogue internships while there are tens of millions of fashion-obsessed kids willing to fight tooth and nail (or perhaps kill) just to get a whiff of precious Conde Nast oxygen?

Sean Avery, Vogue Internship

Sean Avery, hockey player, got an internship at Vogue just by writing a letter.

Earlier this year — just before the playoffs, actually — I wrote to the editor in chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour, and expressed my desire to intern for the magazine once
my team won the Stanley Cup. After just a couple of days I got the
answer I was looking for.

I don't know about you but that internship smells of Eau de Publicitestunt to bring sports-readers to buy Men's Vogue! Hahaha *wink* Now where's Carine Roitfeld, Cecilia Dean or Janice Min (HALE YES!!!) when you need them most?

PS. *hyperventilates* OMG OMG OMG I LOOK LIKE A DOUCHE (or as someone online said, I look like a "twenty-nine year old four year old" haha) BUT I'M ON TEEN VOGUE! Thanks guys for the mention. Teen Vogue is the best! Where were you when I was a child? Back in the dark ages, all we had was friggin Teen Beat, Tiger Beat and YM!!!

Kids these days eh? They have everything!

Marc Jacobs notecard
It’s personal.

But nothing beats this once-in-a-lifetime (i hope not!!) moment I’m about to share to you all. It’s been twelve hours and I’m still crying my face off. I’m literally on cloud nine! This is what tru fashin dedicashin dreams are made of.
