So I had intended for my first post to be about art but...then I saw the Christian Dior 2009/10 Haute Couture show pictures and I thought screw art. My eyes then proceeded to fall out of my face for obvious reasons.
Amazing. I shall never doubt John Galliano's design skills. He is a God among tiny gay men who like to dress up like the captains of ships <3 href="http://s24.photobucket.com/albums/c48/Lolita_Grace/Blog/?action=view¤t=ChristianDiorHauteCoutureFW09-10-1.jpg" target="_blank"> The particularly FIERCE fivesome below just hurt me.
Natasha Poly in that last dress= FIERCE to the ninth degree!
And finally instead of me babbling on about it here's who I think are some of the possible influences for the show. I know my friend Paul would appreciate all of this extravagance.
Charles Anastase's Spring 09 show with the layered nude taffeta and hold ups. Madonna in leopard, forever Madonna; Madonna now and Madonna's crimped bouffant in the 80's. Bettie Page again for the hold ups and 50's pin up charm. Obviously Sophia Loren for makeup with the high groomed brows and painted lips. YUM.
My name is Jasmin but I've always liked boys with girls' names and names that end in -ie.
I'm an insomniac. I like to stay up late to watch the sky change from blue to black to beige and blue again. I'm a critically indecisive realist whose in love with the little things. I enjoy writing lists and schedules but never stick to them. I want to learn to do a million things like speak Swedish, play guitar, skateboard, hula hoop and play poker. My mind is always turning over a million things but I am a simple girl and I never ask for much. I'm a typical nerd and I'm excited by fashion, photography, books, ideas and theories.
I could pour through books and magazines until my eyes dribbled down my face in a torrent of glitter and sequins. It's true.
I like to paint what I write, write what I think and photograph what I see.
