Twinkle Twinkle and

Four word. Jennifer Conelly for Vogue. When I first saw the cover, I didn't know what to think. She didn't seem like Vogue material. But as I was flipping through the issue, I was very pleasantly surprised. They had the most breathtaking photoshoot. It was like a cool breeze of dull cover shoots that has been Vogue of late. I hope that this is the beginning of a very good thing in Vogue. But who knows? Only time can really tell. In the meantime, Enjoy the pictures and pick up this month's issue because it's a good one.

As is my habit, I was looking at's parties coverage. I found a few looks that definitely deserved mentioning. So, voila! here they are.

Jenni Kayne is looking stunning in this fuschia dress and keeps it upbeat with rose-hued ray bans.

Arden Wohl is ever the style icon in her hippie outfit. Love the color and the bangles!

Oh goodness, I love Leigh Lezark's dress. What can I say? I fall for a sequined shift every time.

Look! It's the two Imans-Iman and Chanel. They both look great. But of course, that's a given.

Aren't these shoes amazing? Wouldn't it be great to look down and to see what looks like shining stars twinkling up at you? If you're looking for a quick way to spice up an average ordinary outfit, a pair of these flats are the ticket. Plus, the holidays are coming up, so you'd need a fabulous pair of shoes to wear to all of the great parties you'll be attending. Right?
J. Crew Twinkle Ballet Flats $165-a tad over my budget, but hey a girl can dream.

He Puts the Show in Fashion Show

John Gallioano...Let those two words wash over you in blissful fashion geniusness (I know that that's not a word!). When I think of John Galliano, several things come to mind. One: Innovator. Two: He beats to sound of his own drum. Three: Performer. The last characteristic was quite evident in his Spring 2008 show. With the runway set to a carnival/boardwalk theme set a fun mood to the models flaunting fun poses in the most outlandish clothes ever. To be the Galliano girl, you've got to have spunk to wear them. You wear them to get noticed and have fun in what you're wearing. So, here a few of my favorite looks from the runway. Enjoy!

While you're here...

Here are some of Kate Moss' looks from her holiday Topshop collection.

Kate Moss' got a new haircut? I like it, I think it's kinda edgy. What do you guys think?

*sigh*... Nothing like model pals having fun backstage.

Question: Who do you think is the more innovative mind, Karl Lagerfeld, or John Galliano? Let me know.

There's nobody like your best friend

Ever since the first day of second grade and you shared cookies, she's been there for you no matter what. You help each other when the other is in need. You give her moral support in her aspirations. You inspire each other. You could talk on the phone for hours about anything. You do everything together. You finish each other's sentences. You swap secrets. You share fashion and beauty tips. Through thick and thin, there is no one like your best friend.

Let us not forget Blair and Serena. Can you guys believe that they're not fighting anymore?? Personally, I was waiting for more agression from Serena, but whatever. Here they are out on the town, shopping and having fun together. After all the hard times, they're still there for each other.

Heart to hearts at a big teen vogue party... giving advice is important to your friends in their times of need.

Nothing like two happy coworkers... Lisa Love and Amy Astely, editors of teen vogue.

Hayden, do call me sometime, so you can tell me all about Milo...

Don't worry Jamie, I'll be here for you when Brit goes berserk.

Irina Lazeraunu and Mary Kate...two of fashion's stars.One a model, another a designer. But in a way, both are models. Irina does it while strutting down the runway in the looks chosen by the designer, Mary Kate in every day/night life in her own original way.

I just love this picture. Don't you?

The New Edie and Andy

Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick are like peanut butter and jelly. You can't think of one without the other. They are inseperable. As wise Forrest Gump says "we was like peas and carrots" about his friendship with Jenny. That's Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick. Edie has been known as Warhol's muse, inspiring his paintings, and starring in his films. Warhol brought the creativity, while Edie translated it.

Well, it looks like there might be a new Warhol-Sedgwick in town. You probably already know who the new dynamic-duo of the fashion industry may be. Let's see if you guessed correctly...

Agyness and Henry!

According to the two, Henry Holland and Agyness Deyn have been friends since childhood. Now years later, both have successful careers in the fashion industry. Henry launched his own line, House of Holland, which is known for t-shirts with cheeky rhymes about fashion's stars. These include 'I'll show you who's boss Kate Moss' and 'Get your freak on Giles Deacon'.

She opens his shows and stars in his ad campaigns, while he designs the garments she wears. Sound familiar?

Edie and Andy will never have another exact replica of themselves. This is a good thing, because then they're work wouldn't be creative anymore, it would just be normal(*gasp!*). But it is exciting to see another pair of creative minds at work together, loving what they do. And that rocks the fashion world.

Miuccia does it again...

I know what you're thinking. Miuccia couldn't get any weirder or unflattering than fall 2007. Her unapolegetically strange silhouette was unlike anything else on the runways for the season. Seriously, what were those knee-high toeless socks??? And they were paired with such an awkward hemline too...
Here she is last season:

But for Spring 2008, she really outdid herself. Not only did she get weirder, she lost more and more taste. Which is upsetting, because I usually look to Prada for inspiration. Their usuallt tasteful choices were funky, edgy, and different from all the other runways. Now, it seems that things are taking a turn for the worst. Aside from the clothes looking dreadful, the models just looked dirty in their messy grunge look. Anyways, here are the dreadful looks for you to see....

Ewwww... I don't know what to say about this dress. I hate the pattern.

What are those moss green things on her legs?? Velour Shinguards????

I shall return with more tasteful looks at the end of the week... Til then be good and have fun! Watch Gossip Girl tomorrow at 9!!!!

Random Post

Isn't this a pretty picture of Lily Cole? I just happened upon it while I was online the other night. I love the dramatic turquoise train. Although, how do you wear that? Wouldn't everyone trip over you? Personally, I think that unless you are Princess Diana (or possibly Kate Middleton??) on her wedding day, the ordinary fashionista cannot pull off a train. However, if you can, you are marvelous. I can't pull off a train, and am not Princess Diana in her wedding day in any way, shape, or form. Maybe I just have identity issues with Lily Cole because we're both redheads, and she can actually pull it off. It even looks like she's in a castle so she's a princess too! AAAAAA.... the perfection of, so tragically unfair.

So... now to update you on what Wonder Woman has been doing. I have a lead role in the school play. I play a character named Lenya, who is mother to Sophia, who lives in a village in Russia called Kulyenchicov. The village is under a curse, and to break the curse, Sophia must marry the wicked count, or be taught by a school teacher and think one thought. That's the gist of it, it's actually really funny. I like my role and feel comfortable playing the character. I'll be sure to keep you guys updated.

Also, I ran as class delegate for student government. It was super scary because I had to give a speech in front of my entire class in first period, and then have to wait until third period for the ballots to be handed out, and then until seventh period for the winners to be announced. I was so shocked when I found out I won, but really really happy. I'm co-delegate with my best friend so that should be fun.

Sorry this was such a lame post, I have been in need of some inspiration. I promise the next one will be better!

Luella and Batman

I am a big fan of Luella Bartley. I have been one for a very long time. When she came to Target, I bought nearly every cherry printed piece of canvas I could lay my hands on. So, I was not disappointed for Spring/Summer 2008. She mixed lots of dainty floral prints, and paired them with oxford booties. She showed pouffy ruffled skirt dresses with checked oxfors(think of them like couture Vans). Her silver suit was sleek, and flattering. I loved the splashes of mint and black plaid throughout the collection. What really sold the collection to me was the Batman element. I loved how the bat logo was on some of the knits, and graphics were on the tees, and some models came down the runway wearing a bat-mask. A fan of Batman and Luella, I thought it was awesome. It made the collection fun, and threw in a surprise for all watching. As always, she made geek look chic with the over-size glasses. Enjoy the looks!

Here are a few of my favorite looks from the Emmys:

All of you are probably sick of my runway posts right now, but as it is fashion week in four countries, I will show some of my fave shows with you all for the next couple of weeks and then I will return to normal posting. Have a good weekend!

Cross your fingers, I'm running for class delegate for student government and I have to give a speech in front of my class. AAACK! But for some good news, I got a lead in the school play! I'll tell you all about it in the next post! Enough of my rambling, have a great week!
