While having a lunch time blog hunt I came across these rather amazing images.
Struggling with inspiration at the moment but these at least made me feel a bit better.
The whole world has been taken in by the striking Natalie Portman since the preview of her new film Black Swan. I can definitely see why Dior has opted for Natalie as the new face of Miss Dior Cherie! Even topless she embodies sophisticated innocence, and if this is the typical Miss Dior Cherie girl, I definitely want a bottle!
Over dinner last week the subject of Vogue got brought up, moving very quickly onto the new Versace campaign starring Miss January Jones. I was quizzed by my friend on why such a striking campaign hadn’t been mentioned on my blog. I had no answer. So here it is “Wiggly Worm”:
On screen, as the star of Mad Men, January Jones is known for her impeccable ’60s style. In her role of Betty Francis, the glacial blonde, former-model and frustrated ex-wife of ad man Don Draper, always requires a perfectly polished wardrobe of the decade’s finest fashions. So when the one and only Donatella Versace was looking to cast the face of Versace’s spring/summer 2011 campaign, which references the spirit of the Sixties, Jones was the obvious choice.
Shot by Mario Testino, Jones stripped down this season for Versace’s spring 2011 accessories campaign. Wearing nothing more than the label’s oversize bags and sleek sunglasses, January is a clearly Versace girl through and through.
I enjoy straight -up photos and out fit shots. I love a good quality pic, a clever angle and all the rest of it – but I’ve never seen myself as that kind of blogger. I’ve been asked a few times why I don’t have shots of myself on the blog and I don’t really have an answer. It’s not something I’ve thought of. I don’t dress in a quirky way, I’m not a fashion pioneer so it all seems a little alien to me. I don’t own a tripod and my boyfriend would probably laugh at how un-photogenic I am.
I hope that answers your questions 🙂
Selfridges department store on Oxford Street is renowned for having nutty thought-provoking windows, infact they pride themselves on it. I had heard alot about the Christmas windows, from the bobble head outrage to the eye popping anti-Christmas colours. But it wasn’t until I actually saw these images (taken from a blog I forgot to write down!) that I realised quite how utterly bonkers the windows are. Check out the boggle eyes!
Cool. But Nuts.
Bizarrely Christmas has taken over my brain and I’m totally uninspired. I have a feeling the next few days are going to be image/video posts until I get my blogging mojo back.
If you got any ideas – let me know 😦
For now – check out this Chanel car pic, taken by the one and only Alexa Chung. (via)
