Inspired by Dali

Congratulations to my good friend Kristen Steinman. Her collection at the Pratt 2010 Senior Fashion Show was by far the most wearable and well-executed. Not to mention, there aren't many girls out there who have devoted themselves to designing menswear. Potential retail gold? Definitely. Potential future in fashion? Without a doubt.

Remember Now by Karl Lagerfeld

Cute? Awkward? You decide.

A Poem from my Youth

I'm just as much of a hopeless romantic now, than I was 6 years ago when I wrote this.

You Gave Me The Night

Give me the night
and avenues bathed in neons,
that meet streets of dusky calm.
In a chit chat café,
a lover at my sidewalk table
sipping Moroccan mint tea together.
Oh the night.
Bare branched trees
distorted by peach street lights.
Your sweet nothings,
and rare sweet somethings.
Confess your love to me
and order us some more.
You make these nights complete,
the city even better.
It belong to us now,
just a couple of hours more
and I have you to thank.
So let's take the train home
and only if I can hold your hand.

Wishing a happy Mother's Day to all the moms, grandmas, babymamas, and mothers of the great voguing houses (past and present)!
You are all L-E-G-E-N-D-A-R-Y!

Transgender Givenchy Realness

The first of the Fall/Winter 2010 campaigns to slowly trickle in comes to us from none other than the house of Givenchy. At first glance the ad, shot by Mert and Marcus, is unmistakeably reminiscent of last season's ads. However according to WWD, joining the likes of Simon Nessman and Mariacarla Boscono is Lea T., Riccardo Tisci's longtime personal assistant and former fit model for his eponymous label. Lea also happens to be a MTF transgender. The constant interplay between the masculine and feminine is a major element for Tisci and for Givenchy, so to use Lea in the ad campaign is all the more appropriate. The ads also include newcomers Paolo Rolden, Joan Smalls, Ming Xi, and Malgosia Bela. J'adore diversité.
