Yes, I would definitely like to be a gothic mermaid and wear Rick Owens all winter long….

…With medium heeled shoes, because tripping in this outfit would be more embarrassing than not blogging for two months.

Leather jacket, long sleeved tee and maxi skirt all Rick Owens at net-a-porter. 


Kiss me till you’re drunk and I’ll show you.

You can’t not smile.

Giambattista Valli Couture dress, familiar looking.

Definitely seen this dress before! Not going to sit here and lie to you, I love me a bit of bridal catwalk, and Oscar de le Renta is my first port of call for that kind of entertainment. Looks are imprinted in my mind, perhaps more than they should be for a ‘non-engaged’. Anyway, casually checking out the Couture runway pics this week and I find my fave Oscar look (I say fave, I mean top five because favourites are difficult in this arena) from way back in spring 08, walking down Giambattista Valli! The cape, the head band, the swooshy skirt, even the waist. It’s pretty much the bridal gown’s red twin.

All this being said, I do love a red floor-length cape. Overall, I liked the Valli Couture FW11 show, too. I’m a little bit bored of designers shoving red, white & black at us every A/W, but in this instance it works particularly well with my tastes.

Emma Stone for Elle US July

I friggin love Emma Stone! She was in House bunny (2008) which I’m not even ashamed to say I loved. Here she is before Anna Faris’ character encouraged a transformative, confidence-building, man-snatching makeover.and after….

I haven’t seen Easy A yet, but I am so excited for The Help and even more so for Crazy, Stupid, Love, which also stars Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell and Julianne Moore. Amazing lineup. This may or may not be keeping me entertained at the moment:ANYWAY. I’m getting away from the point. With all these films coming out, Elle/Emma’s pr decided it was time to shoot and interview. The results are so nice. She looks like the kinda gal that’s not afraid to look like an idiot to get the right shot, and I like that.
