Basically everything I am wearing is Urban Outfitters or Anthropologie (I get a great discount…) and the boots were from this random shoe store on 7th Ave.
I swear I am going to have an anxiety attack trying to figure out my outfit everyday…
I saw a few dozen snowflakes today, therefore New York City saw it’s first snow of the season. So of course that calls for some snowy editorials.
I have a weird addiction to award shows, but really just the big ones. The Academy Awards are my favorite, followed by the Tony’s in a close second place. I actually didn’t think I could be more excited for the show on Feb. 27, until I found out who the host was. Turns out it’s hosts.
James Franco and Anne Hathaway are co-hosting the Oscars this year. That means there will be a song and dance, amazing clothes, and some of Franco’s dry humor. They are the personification of the new generation of Hollywood. The two actors are completely okay with taking risks (playing gay characters, and getting nude) but they don’t draw a lot of attention to themselves, and try to stay out of rehab (and jail).
They also happen to have some pretty incredible magazine covers and spreads.
Twenty year old British model, Jourdan Dunn, is December’s Model of the Month. Along with walking over 90 fashion shows since she began modeling three years ago, Dunn was also the first black model to walk for Prada in more than a decade. She was also on the cover of the 2008 Italian Vogue devoted to black models, as well as I-D, Elle France, Vogue, and Teen Vogue.
Though she is amazingly beautiful, with very high cheek bones and cat eyes, Dunn is probably most known for her killer legs.
So after my two posts yesterday I was running around like a girl at the Barney’s Warehouse sale and completely forgot about Anna Wintour’s birthday. To those of you who know me personally, this is like me forgetting to accessorize in the morning or put on my red lipstick.
I feel quite terrible, granted I only missed it by 12 hours, but I still feel badly.
This is the infamous card specially commissioned by the fabulous artist Christopher Sauvé.:
But for now, Happy Birthday Ms. Anna Wintour, and may there be many many more!
Though I usually prefer models on the cover of magazines, Emma Watson gracing December’s issue of British Vogue is completely fine with me and I kind of love it.
She looks like a modern Twiggy with her cropped hair and big doe eyes. I won’t even mind paying $10 for this issue of the magazine, Emma Watson takes beautiful pictures and I have a feeling her editorial in the magazine will go above and beyond.
I feel like she, and Carey Mulligan on the cover of American Vogue, are still pressuring me into cutting my hair like theirs, but I don’t know if I could pull it off as amazingly as they do.
And here is Carey Mulligan’s cover story for October’s Vogue styled by Grace Coddington:
I am a huge fan of those wildly expensive fashion coffee table books. For Christmas last year I received In Vogue which I had been longing after for months. It is basically a biography of the fashion bible complete with stunning images, models galore, and one of the most interesting history lessons I have ever received.
A few weeks ago I found Extreme Beauty in Vogue at Anthropologie massively on sale for about $8 with tax. I was so excited that I pulled it out on the subway ride back to my apartment and promptly finished the whole thing. The photographs in this book, especially Irving Penn’s were some of the most visually interesting, thought provoking, and beautiful I have ever seen. Penn was a true genius of the art world and his work in Vogue I believe truly elevated the magazine to what it has become today.
