made you look

This is what style is all about:
turning heads.


Fantastic photo taken by Scott Schuman in Instanbul.
This really makes me want to visit Turkey.

choices

Most things in life can be reduced to a very simple decision


holy mary

Photographers and stylists are often inspired by religious themes,
but sometimes this can have disastrous consequences.

Between offensive and cheesy, 
lies an elusive gray area where hauntingly beautiful images
 can be created with the right touch of holy, or in some cases, unholy

finals

While some look forward to December because of Christmas-related festivities,
the first weeks of this month are notoriously hated by all post-secondary students
because it's time for finals.

Fuck.

Time to do all that shit you've been pretending didn't exist all semester long.

And stop shopping on-line/browsing/facebook creeping.

too cute

Such a cute editorial,
but still manages to maintain a cool retro vibe




Meow!

I would love to roam Parisian rooftops dressed like that.
Or maybe this isn't Paris? Either way, love this editorial.

S&M

Just when you think the S&M girl-on-girl thing has gotten old,
an editorial like this shows up to remind you how awesome it is.




I am a pretty big fan of Turkish fashion magazines in general,
and this editorial from Marie Claire Turkey only reinforces that opinion.
The styling is interesting and tasteful, 
and the editorials aren't littered with photos of celebrities 
(seriously when was the last time Vogue US featured a model on the cover??)

neon madness

Funky spread from Grazia Italy  featuring 
colourful and futuristic winter gear.


Love the acid yellow fur. 

 The glasses and outer-lined lips
give this a Marilyn Manson-esque feel.

boots

I don't wear boots.
Never have I owned a pair of proper boots 
that I actually liked.

Hence, I spend the cold Canadian winters
roaming in ankle booties
(wool socks are my best friend).

And then I saw these:


Fucking amazing Damir Doma creeper boots.

Here's my beef with regular boots:
they never fit tightly enough in the leg!
These babies certainly don't have that problem.


Get them here if you've got the $$$

Jourdan

Here are some lovely portraits of one of my favourite models:
Jourdan Dunn



There is nothing she can't do: sexy, elegant, edgy, soft
What a beauty

furry love

Can't stop staring at this!

Maryna Linchuk looks like a fucking nordic goddess.


I also really love the idea of embellished fur hats.

rick genest

Seriously obsessed.
The devastating beauty of Rick Genest really needs no commentary. 



I have to say, though, that many people (myself included)
knew about  Zombie Boy well before Nicola Formichetti
ever showed up on the scene.

rocks & horns

Love the jewelry and the hair,
makes me miss the days when I dyed my hair black 
and wore my bags straight...

intense

This girl has such a stunning and dramatic face!
I am really loving these portraits.

Photography is superb, so is the make-up and hair, 
which adds drama but doesn't distract from the model.

fuck yeah

Naked biddies on bikes.
What else do you need?

fur babies

Super fabulous editorial from Harper's Bazaar US (Nov. 2011)

The setting is fairy-tale perfection and
no one does luxury better than Eniko.






The black & white fur coat in the first photo fits like a dream
and seriously who can resist a baby (wolf ?) husky!

winter blues


Fantastic editorial from Metal #25

Super fresh styling and wicked hair







The only thing I don't love about this is the skateboard in the last photo.
This editorial is strong enough on its own and doesn't need any props
to give it "edge". And who are we kidding, it doesn't look like this
gal will be doing any kick flips in those shoes.
