Stunning Jourdan

Teen Vogue's have a huge influence on their readership,by putting Jourdan, even though the didn't knew she was pregnant when the shoot took place, will probably cause an outrage among the reader's parents.

The last few days I been watching Michael Jackson's Dangerous tour on dvd before I go off to bed and when I get up in the morning. Except for that his performance is great according to dance and and voice his fashion sense trickled down to me, or it really did a lot earlier when I first bought my sequin jacket.

Wearing it twice before sequins wore me out I thought that today was a good day to wear it.
Back to Michael, who had kind of a love affair with sequins and everything glitzy and glammy.

These are hos tour jackets from the Victory tour. Sparkling it must been.

Remember those pants that he always wore? A little bit too short so that one could see his sequined (surprise!) socks and how he moved his feets? Well, they are kind of featured in the Longchamp ad above.

Viktor & Rolf's FW 09.10 collection showed off some sequin socks.

You know there's those dresses that doesn't seem to flee from memory and end up in forgotten garments world, where they are just forgotten for the rest of their lives which will be a long one cause the rottenness process of a garment is not exactly over in a few years and no one will burn them cause the can't be asked to bother. Scary thoughts, but my point is that some apparell wont just fade from the memory.

Donatella Versace's bamboo printed chiffon dress from the S/S 10 show is one of them.

Greens and blues, navel deep v-neck, fastened at the crotch with a jewelled pin and then flared out to reveal jewelled knickers, ring a bell? Thought so.

Compared to a lot of other dresses that will probably end up as in my imagination forgotten garment world his particularly dress was immediately worn by a range of celebrities, among others Jennifer Lopez.

This was off course a contribute to the evergoing debate about celebrity endorsing in the fashion world that comes with all its' pro and cons according to brand image. Journalist Lisa Armstrong wrote that we consume celibrities as avidly as any drug and that certain designers have come to rely on tabloid images of celebrities to shift their garments off the rails.

Armstrong also nominated the Versace dress as Dress of the Year for the Bath Museum of Costume in 2000, instead of Hussein Chalayan's wooden table-dress, because she thought it represented a high-water mark in the current symbiosis between fashion and celibrity.

And about the celebrity endorsing, I am well aware of it but I don't consider myself to have the authority to completely trash it. I just know that I don't like when they put Cheryl Cole on the cover of a magazine and call her a fashionista or a style icon.

Last year it was Madonna, Prince and Michael Jackson who turned 50, half way to hundred. This year was Barbie's.

I remember playing in my room with her (Barbie), she was the grandmother, Midge her daughter, who was married to not Ken but the dark haired guy, Skipper was the teenage daughter and the got like eight other kids, I liked big families.
Though being tired of playing around with them in their house, I dressed Midge (she was most beautiful) up in sequin evening dresses, pink tops and dotted skirts, western boots and neon heels.

The dressing up of Barbie and her likes has today been taking to a whole new level. In New York this February Barbie had her own catwalk show which opened with a look designed by Rachel Roy who was inspired by the first Barbie made in 1959.

Said that she's every girl's first fashion muse was proofed by Anna Sui: “I realized one of my childhood dreams when I created an Anna Sui Barbie doll for Mattel. It was really like the ultimate little girl’s fantasy." I had grown up making clothes for my dolls, and of course, I always loved dressing Barbie.”

But a catwalk show is not enough, at least not for Barbie who also got Christian Louboutin making shoes for her.

The Barbie-pink red soled Louboutin shoe premiered at the birthday show in New York.

The designer will make three customized dolls inspired by Nefertiti and Marilyn Monroe will also include some physical changes. “She needed great shoes, a thinner ankle and, to me, as I’m obsessed with feet, a foot more curved,” the designer proclaimed.

The three dolls, packaged in Louboutin shoe boxes, each accompanied with four pairs of Barbie-sized Louboutin's will be sold through barbiecollector and Net-a-porter for $150.

Maybe I should set that barbie house of mine up again, or at least dig out the closet, Barbie needs those neon yellow pumps replaced.

One of my favourite photographers is Tim Walker because of his utterly talent to bring fairytales alive, or as he puts it: "Turning funny daydreams into funny photographs."

He do this by confessing to have had a very happy childhood and most of the time to live in an imaginary world.Well, the stunning sets and the juxtaposition of the everyday,absurd and enchanting certainly evokes an unique beauty.

This was the checklist for one of his shoots:
"20 ballerinas, 17 'mirrored' geese, 250 ostrich eggs (sprayed gold), a box of giant plastic hands, a room full of white umbrellas, 20 Christmas trees, a wolf's head-and-feet costume, a giant pumpkin, fake silver armour, a horse (also sprayed gold), hundreds of 'Arabian Nights' oil lamps, and racks of dresses, costumes and ballerina tutus,"-It do creates images of textured nuances and intriguing details.
