What do we love? Chanel. Who else do we love? Glass Magazine. Why?
Recently I have been making friends with the people over at Glass Magazine. By friends, I actually mean Facebook and Instagram friends. This of course will be remedied by me being awesome in their proximity and vice versa. Life goals people.
I’m especially enjoying the work of the Stylist, who works with Glass regularly, Katie Felstead. She is genius and makes everything from modern, edginess too romantic styles look brilliant. You know I don’t give accolades to other Stylist’s unless they are balls out amazing.
Back to this amazing editorial. Chanel is one of those amazing labels that every country understands. Say Chanel anywhere in the world (except maybe the deep amazon, though maybe there too) and it’s recognized as a brand with integrity, quality that costs big bucks.
Glass Magazine produced a wonderful Chanel editorial shoot that’s soft, beautiful and sexy. Giving us the sense of a gentle and delicate Chanel woman.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

I LOVE this girl. Lindsey Wixson is not only one hell of a model, but a fighter for justice and the earth.
She’s also a current muse of Karl Lagerfeld (Chanel in case you’ve been sleeping) and is not only a great editorial model, but really tall, and rocks the runways. She’s infamous for her cute little tooth gap in the front and her ‘bee-stung lips’.
Now that I’ve given you her accolades, how about I give you the editorial? I loves Gilles Bensimon’s work. Truly, he’s a genius. Here he captures Lindsay in her favorite environment, nature.
Because the middle of the week promises many things. It means you made it to Wednesday, it’s the middle of a grueling work week, it’s #HumpDay and worst of all you are at work on a beautiful summer day.
Thank you Calvin Harris. Playing all summer long, Calvin Harris has decimated the charts with his awesome theme for this Summer of 2014, simply titled ‘Summer’.
So here’s the chart topping ‘Summer’ to brighten your day. Happy Hump Day from me and the sexiness that is Calvin Harris. You deserve a break today. Now go dance in your cubicle….
As the fashion world reels to the news the the ever relevant irrelevant ‘Kimye’ has taken over the Vogue cover, Naomi Campbell has spoken out. Or perhaps pulled the most epic LOL on the face of the planet. Normally I think she is stone cold B*tch, which can be great in fashion and modeling. No, really. However this time I want to hug that frozen goddess and thank her. Her rebuttal to the nasty made everyone smile. Possibly even Anna Wintour.

Ok, before you ask where has this lovely bloggy been, I have been deathly ill with the flu for the 2 and a half time. This thing is easy to get apparently if you work at a 50,000 person convention for four days.
But that isn’t what you are here for is it?
My flu story can wait for another day. Fashion, is what really matters on this page. Especially the World of McQueen.
Sarah Burton has my support in spades. She is genius and is carrying on the McQueen legacy with aplomb. Take the newest fashion campaign. Hiring the ever talented Steven Meisel was smart. But genius stepped in when they added the omnipresent Kate Moss.
With creative direction from Pascal Dangin of KIDS, the 4 completed what can only be looked at as an astounding, and very surreal campaign. There is a mini Kate doll in these photos and I’m not sure whether I am more stunned by her or it. Most likely it’s the over all imagery. Intense, bold, beautiful and blue. The hues create the perfect campaign. Well done House of McQueen and Kate Moss. You’ve once again brought art into fashion.
And the campaign video is amazing as well. Very surreal with a nice creep factor.
I make no excuses, nor will I ever lie about my total and complete dedication to the House of McQueen. There is virtually nothing in their collections I do not covet.
The house of McQueen just released a new scarf collection. The collection features a collaboration with iconic artist Damien Hirst. Hirst’s career reigned supreme in the UK in 90s and continues to impress, and be iconic, in the art scene.
The new collection features a nature theme with symmetrical designs in the classic McQueen skull motif. Add the effervescent talent of Sølve Sundsbø who shot the collection AND directed an editorial video for the scarves. He is by far one of the great’s in the industry who constantly produces amazing photography. I am impressed with Burton, of the House of McQueen, to tap such amazing talent.
With such beautiful representation, I am in complete submission, and awe, of this collection.

Is there anything Mario Testino can not twist into magnificence? The answer is no, because he is pure art. Add uber model Catherine McNeil and you have an enchanting editorial for British Vogue called ‘Prima Donna’.
Thankfully, Models.com posted said editorial in full. Styled by the very talented Lucinda Chambers, Catherine looks beyond stunning and Mario Testino’s artistic ways have yet again, stolen my heart. It is a shoot full of noir, the romantic and has an air of perfect grace. Truly a trump for British Vogue’s September issue.
Beyond the clothing and make up this shoot came out so stunning it took my breath away. I had to post it. Enjoy the ethereal works of Testino and the Cat.
