Like an onion

Note to self: must perfect layering this Winter, the way she has.

It must be somebody's fault.

Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan has put together a portfolio for W's latest Art issue, featuring Lisa Evangelista. The whole thing confuses me but I love its retro feel, each of the shots could have been taken from a film, Kubrick comes to mind.

Plato's Atlantis

This caused me many a life-threatening palpitation this morning. Last night, Alexander Mcqueen presented Plato's Atlantis. At the beginning of the show, a film shot by Nick Knight of Raquel Zimmerman (writhing around in sand with a couple of snakes & later morphing into a sea creature) was projected onto a screen behind the runway, before dark robotic arms carrying cameras flew across the audience, filming them and the models...

5th Element -esque, alien creations manoevered down the holographic catwalk in ten inch 'armadillo' platforms. Reptillian & desert colours morphed into tropical ocean hues - structured, couture-like, digital print pieces were covered in snakeprints and butterfly wings, whilst some of the white faced models even had prosthetic gills around their eyes (that took 3 hours to apply)...coupled with the transparent jellyfish organza - Mcqueen's beautiful hybrids could not fail to make a spectacle...

On livestreaming and setting up glass pyramids around the world to beam his shows into, Alexander McQueen says -

“This is the birth of a new dawn. There is no way back for me now. I am going to take you on journeys you’ve never dreamed were possible.” [fashiontoast]

It's Not Easy Being Green

Viktor & Rol...Roisin!

Jeeeese, Roisin Murphy sang at Viktor and Rolf's Spring/Summer 2010 show in Paris this morning. Need I say more?

There is a light that never goes out.

Since seeing 500 Days of Summer and downloading the soundtrack - I've developed an unhealthy obsession with that Smiths song. Predictably, I loved the film, despite the annoying narrator's voice. Fantasy and reality mixed up with some nice illustration and music - cosy.

Speaking of lights (cheesy link, sorry) will somebody please fly out to Clooney's in Auckland and buy me these bulbs? They remind me of those big bubble makers I used to play with as a kid.

whilst Freja Beha Erichsen just looks confused...

I wonder what Alber put on the models' inspiration board?
