Dior Pre-Fall 2012

Dior Pre-Fall 2012
I thought the collection was very safe. Almost the complete polar opposite of John Galliano. But at the same time I think its beautiful. Its simple yet so clean and real. I usually edit the photos to give it an extra kick, but they were shot so beautifully I didnt want to ruin the softness of it. Fashion can get very hard edged at times, which is great, but sometimes we all want something a little on the soft side. It was a little refreshing to see a story here. It just looks like a fabulous girl who lives in a palace and feels the need to dress up constantly. Shes a younger Dior girl, which the house might need with the absence of Galliano. Very charming and cute collection. I dont know if shes even on the radar right now, but I can see Kiera Knightly in all these pieces. Im not sure if its te models similar hair to Keira in the Chanel fragrance commercial, but the light, unpretentious mood reminds me of her.

Who is Arizona Muse? And why should we care?

That’s what I found myself asking as I saw her in ads ranging from Louis Vuitton to Fendi. According to my research, she seems to be the biggest deal in modeling at the moment.She’s added multiple Vogue covers to her repertoire, including three covers of Australian Vogue. She also walked in over 60 shows this spring. So rest assured, Arizona is going to remain a fixture in the next few years to come. Unless it’s true that the brightest starts burn out the fastest?Some of her recent work includes the cover of Korean Vogue January 2012 and British Vogue February 2012 and Isabel Marant’s Spring Ad Campaign. I’m sure there’s more work to come soon. I’m just not sure if I’m ready to jump on the Arizona Muse bandwagon yet. She’s already jumped from non existent to #5 on Models.com. I think it’s gonna take time for this girl to grow on me. I mean she’s already grown on all the designers and Freja Beha Erichsen…Rumored to be together. If they are, then I’ll wave my white flag and she’ll be one of my favorites. Everyone loves a good lipstick lesbian.

Balmain Spring 2012 Directed by Inez and Vinoodh

Top Model Abbey Lee Kershaw, her boyfriend Matthew Hutchinson and their band ‘Our Mountain,’ are featured wearing the new diffusion line ‘Pierre Balmain.’ It’s about 90% cheaper than Balmain.

I’ve always loved Balmain. The ‘I don’t give a shit, effortless rock-chic’ vibe it gives off. To put it simply, it’s really cool. But, as much as I’d like to, I can’t seem to save enough money to fund a small fortune of $2,000 t-shirts and $9,000 jeans. I know it’s not a great excuse, but I have bills…So the affordability of the new line means I need to move my ass and get it before it’s gone.
