Rebel Rebel

I'm head over heels for this editorial from the November issue of Harper's Bazaar UK. That's all.

If a I found a magic lamp and a genie popped out and gave me three wishes, my first wish would be for colder weather so that I could wear my faux fur. I don't know what my other two wishes would be. Probably your standard love and happiness crap that you're supposed to wish for when you rub a magic lamp and a genie pops out.

Words (Of Magic)

"Song" by John Donne

Go, and catch a falling star,
Get with child a mandrake root,
Tell me, where all past years are,
Or who cleft the Devil's foot,
Teach me to hear mermaid's singing,
Or to keep off envy's stinging,
And find
What wind
Serves to advance an honest mind.

If thou be'st born to strange sights,
Things invisible to see,
Ride ten thousand days and nights,
Till age of snow white hairs on thee,
Thou, when thou return'st, wilt tell me
All strange wonders that befell thee,
And swear,
No where
Lives a woman true, and fair.

If thou find'st one, let me know,
Such pilgrimage were sweet;
Yet do not, I would not go,
Though at next door we might meet;
Though she were true, when you met her,
And last, till you write your letter,
Yet she
Will be
False, ere I come, to two, or three.

Dear Nylon,

You're kidding me, right? It's bad enough putting Paris Hilton on your cover at all, but putting her on the cover of the America issue? That makes me want to punch you. I'm not sure what your aim was here. By using Paris to represent America, what emotion were you trying to instill in us? Pride or shame? Needless to say, I'm very disappointed in you. I might as well have picked up the November issue of Cosmopolitan

Clémence Poésy in Vogue Italia

Clémence is my favorite, favorite actress. Not only is she beautiful and stylish, but she is completely captivating on screen. I'm dying to see her most recent film, La troisième partie du monde. Find it for me with English subtitles somewhere online, and I'll love you forever and always.

Here Comes the Bride

Can we just talk about how much I love this lacy creamish concoction from Catherine Holstein's spring collection? Is it a dress and a jacket? Or maybe just a dress? I don't know, but I love it, and I want to be married in it, or at least something similar to it. I mean, I've got a good five to ten years to think about it, though. I'll probably end up wearing something that is nothing like this at my wedding, but right now I want to be married in this dress.

The rest of the collection is quite good too. You should give it a look.

This so better be a nasty rumor. No, I'm not talking about her engagement to Pete Doherty. That rumor, unfortunately, is very true.

Beck Is Sexy

I've been listening to Beck's new album so much. Today I told a friend that Beck was sexy. I meant his voice, of course, but then I looked up pictures from some of his more recent shoots, and he really is sexy... in my opinion at least. Sexy and very, very odd.

It's probably the hair that does it for me. Yes, I'm positive it's the hair. It's always the hair. What do you think? Sexy, yeah?

"I feel certain that somewhere very near here--the first house down the road, maybe--there's a good poet dying, but also somewhere very near here somebody's having a hilarious pint of pus taken from her lovely young body, and I can't be running back and forth forever between grief and high delight" -J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey

Oh, Irina

I remember the first time I ever saw Canadian/Romanian model Irina Lazareanu. I was flipping through shots from Proenza Schouler's Fall 2006 show on Style.com when I came across this picture of her sitting backstage. The first thing that caught my eye was the hardware on her boots because I'd been looking for a similar pair forever (never found them), but when I actually looked at her, ohhhh my. I had never really been intrigued by a model, but her perfect fringe (at a time when fringe couldn't be found on every other forehead) and androgynous style won me over. She's a total bohemian rocker. So that's how my love affair with Irina began. I realized today, however, that I hadn't seen any new pictures of her recently so I decided to do a little searching on the Fashion Spot forums, and of course, there she was, beautiful as ever. She will forever and always be my favorite model.

My search also produced this little video for Aniye By. Charming.
