Kirsten Dunst For Miu Miu SS08 Ads

For people who love to shop, January is a bit of a dry month. But for fashion-lovers, January is pretty exciting as it is when a lot of the SS campaigns are released. One of the campaigns I've been most anticipating is the Miu Miu campagin because a) Kirsten Dunst is Miu Miu's model of the season, and b) I usually love Miu Miu's campaign images. I have to admit I didn't really like Lindsay Lohan's FW07 campaign. Maybe I just didn't think Lindsay suited Miu Miu, or maybe the images just seemed too grown-up for Miu Miu.
The colour scheme of the SS08 campaign seems pretty similar to the FW07 one. But what I like about this campaign is that it really conveys the feeling of the clothing collection - the clothes and bags are very obviously featured, but it still manages to be artistic and dramatic. Also, I think Kirsten did really well. She manages to look coy, theatrical and ladylike while still looking playful. (You have to stare at it for awhile before really feeling the images. Go to the Miu Miu website for larger pictures.)
Now I don't actually love all the images, but I like the campaign as a whole. Plus I may be biased as Kirsten is my favourite actress. And while it would be nice to see Miu Miu use a model to model the campaign, it doesn't look like it's going to happen anytime soon.
I want to say this looks like a good 'look' for work (minus the red bow on the head,) but the skirt is way too short. If only I could go to work looking this chic though! Even the bag looks big and practical for work!
Hmm, I couldn't decide whether I like this image (top)...
or this image (top) more. But these two are definitely my favourite out of the lot. The clothes are SO cute, girly and quirky. I just don't know where one would wear them. Oh well, it's not like I could afford these clothes.
Do you like Kirsten's Miu Miu ads?

Haute Couture S/S08 III

Starting with Armani's tribute to Valentino:
This post, like all of the other recent haute couture posts, is all about Valentino's final show. The old-school king of romance is retiring after more than 40 years of designing flowery and lacey dresses. Personally, I've always been neutral about Valentino. To me, Valentino is a well-respected designer who has been around for a very long time. I don't exactly love or hate his designs because I wasn't even born yet during some of his more memorable designer years and because such fancy clothes isn't exactly studentwear. But this is the very final Valentino show, so let's take some time to admire the final work of a master:
Take note of the Phillip Tracey hats -they're so pretty! Isn't the bow on Natalia V.'s head SO adorable? I could totally imagine a red one on Blair (Gossip Girl)!
OK, so I admit I can't tell the difference between this collection and Valentino's RTW line. They just all look very lady-like to me.
The gold, 20's dress on the left is one of my favourite from this collection. It's modern but still very classic-looking.
Flowers in many different forms -a signature of Valentino's.
Chic and elegant.
Gorgeous! Don't the purple/ pink flowers just look like they're growing on a vine on these dresses?
These dresses look so big and puffy, yet still so light and floaty. Just what certain romantic dresses are supposed to look like.
The silver (or is it white?) dress on Vlada (right) is another one of my favourite dresses in this collection. It's SO gorgeous!
Farewell Valentino!

Go Crazy

Ohhhh I did something totally insane and spent money on a pair of boots that look like this:

Yes. They will be here tomorrow. Wonderful Guess "Maeve" boots. Kind of gothic but I can't wait to wear it with my chiffon dress with tights and leg warmers, a black blazer, and some crazy coloured scarf.

So now for some outfits that I would gladly wear. Because we all have Lacroix, Moschino and Schouler lying around in our closets.


I literally Can't sleep over Prada it's all too amazing, i actually think about Prada in some shape or form every single day.

New Name

So I guess I should think about changing the title of this blog because ......... I've become freelance sad I will no longer be working at the rather amazing magazine but excited at the prospect of calling in clothes for shoots I'm styling instead of someone else, (If any pr's read this beeee nice please ). The blog will be changing slightly featuring more of my own work. Fingers toes and everything else crossed.

DEAR ....

Mrs Prada,

I would very much like this jumper below reasons why....

a) this jumper is pink , pink is a highly feminine colour , since I spend most of my days feeling like a fat 11 year old no one wants to talk to this could be my only chance in life to feel like a girl thus getting me a boyfriend which would make me feel like even more of a girl.

b) it actually looks like it might fit me ( ok ok not sample size perhaps a 42 might fit) for someone who spends a lot of time lusting after clothes i can't get my thumb into this could be a great improvement for the whole self esteem thing.

c) Till this day I have never ever lost/stolen any of your press samples therefore there must be some sort of rewards points system I'm on I imagine its like nectar points only with Prada not money off  bread or something.

d) You've forgotten my birthday it was a two weeks ago ( Dont worry wang has too his letter is next! ) so this would be a perfect make up for it.


feel free to email me anytime so i can send you my address 

thanks again

Dear ....

Dear Junya Watanabe,

came to the office today and i really would like to keep it Please Please Please?? reasons why below.

a) its a sample and i fit it! do you know how Many samples fit fat girls actually fit in?? none therefore I should have fun cape coat scarf thingy it will increase my considerably low self esteem.

b) i never get anything free if i had this i'd stop making the sad face in the picture and i'd behappy and you would totes want that right??

(C) if i had this i would make a concerted effort to get on jak & jill , satorialist, facehunter etc etc i'd even brush my hair maybe put on some heels, this in turn would be excellent advertising for you earning you more big bucks and thus paying for cape coat thingy.

s i've demonstrated above i would really benifit from having this piece so if you can just let mekeep it that would be great.

Many thanks

Question Time part 3

So here we go again, this time we have the everyone's favorite fashionista Julia Frakes I love her for so many reasons, Her enviable sense of style, her way with words ( Julia contributes to several magazines Lula, Vogue Girl Korea, 25 Magazine, Vogue Nippon, InStyle UK etc) and her lovely scummy Tumbler called Yes! a bunny stream of conch its full of oh so cute images, interviews and fun stuff that makes a girl feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Name: Julia Frakes

Age: 20

Location: New York City (downtown)

What do you do? Fashion writer, model (represented by Next Model Management - Special Bookings), stylist

If your life had a theme song, what would it be? Perhaps "17 Pink Sugar Elephants" by Vashti Bunyan. Although my mum told me that she originally settled on the name "Julia" from my eponymous Beatles song on The White Album.

Who was your first crush? Conan O'Brien.

Best year you weren’t alive for? 1776, 1976.

What film makes you all romantic? The Big Sleep with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall; Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo & Juliet and Jane Eyre (with Charlotte Gainsbourg); Léa Pool's Lost and Delirious; and admittedly Nora Ephron's You've Got Mail.

When's the last time you felt nostalgic? Listening to Fleetwood Mac always reminds me of my childhood: specifically driving in my mom's old green Land Rover to the horse stables or to Miller's Orchard to pick up apples and gourds and pumpkins in the autumn.


Possession: I would never consider her a 'possession' per se... but without a doubt my roly-poly adorable ragdoll cat, Daisy. What an amazing listener.

Smell: Coastal Maine. On the fragrance front: Le Labo's sprightly Ambrette 9, Penhaligon's sentimental Bluebell, L'Artisan Parfumeur's fleeting Cote d'Amour and Byredo Parfum's subtle Blanche.
Candles: Ladurée's Amandine, Alexa Rodulfo's Bois Blanc and Cire Trudon's Spiritus Sancti.

Guilty pleasure: Stephen Jones hats, Rachel Maddow, Bill Maher, One Lucky Duck's raw vegan "ice cream", collecting an altogether insane amount of bizarrely herbally candles, jamming out to staggeringly profane music in my car at equally profane volumes.

Cake: is melt-in-your-mouth delectable from Pure Food and Wine near Gramercy Park.

love is... in the words of William Shakespeare: "love is a spirit of all compact of fire"

God is... awesome, all-pervasive... and entirely relative; surely not without a sense of humour.

You is... not taking myself too seriously.

Fashion is... all in the moment.
