VOGUE NIPPON NOVEMBER 2009

Some nice soft colours in Vogue Nippon November 2009. Of note; makeup is by Ayami Nishimura using Ellis Faas cosmetics. Sally just recently posted a video about Ellis Faas here. Loving the man-ish baggy, structured look going on here.

TREADING LIGHTLY

Some lovely glowing heels, brainchild of Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte. These are really fantastic, they're definitely inspired me to one day incorporate some lighting into my shoes. I really love the pairing of futuristic elements, and tribal, primitive elements in this shoe

Can you tell I've only just discovered Mr. Newton? I shall continue to blog 'em as I see 'em, just bear with me here.

PEACHY KEEN





Fashion Editor of Dazed, Katie Shillingford (on the left) is looking pretty in peach here. Her hair colourist is Alex Brownsell, an already famous 22 year old who is also featured in the current RUSSH magazine.

I'm a big fan of Brownsell's blog BEAUTY IS A RELIGION, an amazing left-of-centre beauty blog that she writes with friend Lou Teasdale. Its so good. They're creative and balls-out and basically everything I'd like to be as a makeup artist or stylist or whateverthefuck I decide I actually want to be.

I can't stop thinking about this one from Jak&Jil and Mr. Newton. Isabel Marant fur jacket from spring 2010. The green! THE GREEN!

CLEAR SKIES

There has been a bit of a clear trend lately, especially in the eyewear realm. I have to say I've most definitely been sucked into this one...

The first two are Prada, the third is Forever21 which appears to be imitating Prada, the fourth is Topshop Unique and fifth is Moscot x Shipley & Halmos. Not sure if there was any copying going on, but the last two do look very similar.

BROWTOWN

So speaking of makeup, here's a little gem from Vogue Russia a couple months ago. Bit late right. The makeup artist on this one was Linda Cantello, who has done a myriad of editorial makeups in her time for Vogue and V Magazine. It was also styled by Panos Yiapanis, who's behind Givenchy menswear and Rick Owens runway shows which means he's more than okay with me.

I'm loving the shit out of this one. I think its the glowy Hannah Holman (also featured on the current RUSSH cover) and her flossy hair, paired with such a sharp makeup. I can see why the no-eyebrows look stuck around for so long. Because its awesome.

Just found this site called FLY 16X9. Style.com calls it "The first fully digital fashion magazine where music meets art meets video."
I am not a believer of digital magazines taking over print (I'd like to see a website more enjoyable to read than a brand new ACNE Paper) but this is the best I've seen so far!

Here is a clip from the beauty section, its an interview with Dutch makeup artist Ellis Faas - interesting for me as I sell her range at work. Her lip colours in particular are amaaaaazing.

STEPPING ON TOES

I would like to share with you; the fruits of my efforts the last few weeks. As some of you may already know, I've started a footwear course this year. Here are my first four pairs:

MONGOLIAN HOOVES

I will start firstly be expressing my profound disappointment with Topshop Unique's RTW SS2010 end result in the footwear department. I had been very excited about the shoes on the left (shown on the runway), only to find that they would never be sold, (well at least not online) but rather their poor substitute, the ones on the right. Which I am completely uninterested in.

Now that's out of the way, I am very much in love with the AW 2010/11 shoes. But I'm now quite fearful of if they will ever make it onto shop shelves, or if they'll just be shown up by some less than deserving substitute.

TV TRON

The current TV AW10 collection, Nothing But Flowers, immediately reminded me of the 1982 film, TRON. I am undecided about the collection overall, but I will say I like the continuation of the grid perforations, and the odd pairing of neon colours with the floral patterns.

Had a NARS event at work today with makeup stylist Julio Sandino. Still buzzing, and now I just want to do fuckloads of makeups and take photos of them. Yeah? Yeah!

PRETTY WANGIN

I just watched Pretty in Pink last weekend for the first time.. PRETTY CUTE! What caught my eye though, were Duckie's shoes. They sorta-kinda-maybe-possibly remind me of the Alexander Wang shoes from a little while ago. They don't actually look very similar at all, but I immediately associated them for whatever reason.

GARETH PUGH AW 2010

Detail shots from Gareth Pugh AW 2010. There's been quite a focus on nails this season, as demonstrated here with the hanging chains attached to the nails. HOW INCONVENIENTLY GREAT!
Makeup is also awesome though. I want jewel encrusted nails. Like, massive chunks of rock on there. I suppose I'd just end up like the shell lady in the Boosh.

WOMAD 2010

I went to WOMAD this weekend, managed to see Gilles Peterson (AWESOME DJ based in London) and Ravi Shankar (most influential Indian musician ever and Norah Jones' Dad). Also saw this Indian dance performance of the Mahabharata, they had the best jewellery. I've got a few shots below, managed to get a closer look later in their dressing rooms. Oh and a nice pair of shoes I spotted...
