Lost In Manhattan [ December 29th @ 10:36pm ]
hellimaria
Since no- one has posted anything on this community for a long time, I decided to post this editorial from Vogue Paris. I don't have a whole editorial, which is photographed by Mikael Jansson, so couple photos are missing. This editorial was published in 2003 and is influenced by Sofia Coppola's film Lost In Translation . I hope you like the pics and styling.

face time [ October 21st @ 9:17pm ]

ocean_child
the other day, while looking up info on one of my favourite models, du juan, i discovered something interesting and appalling. "Du Juan is the first Asian model to adorn the cover of the French edition of fashion magazine Vogue." the article goes on to discuss how "the Chinese" think Du Juan is pretty, while she holds more "appeal" to Westerners. what is with the discussion of different standards of beauty? after being told constantly that there is ONE beauty ideal, are we know saying that different parts of the world can idealize different kinds of women as beautiful? i don't know, it just got me thinking.

and i like this photoshoot, but hate how i don't like that she is styled as a "harajuku" girl (she's chinese, not japanese) but how i would hate it if a white model were styled as a harajuku girl.

exotic beauty! canada's next top uglies! [ July 20th @ 7:36pm ]

ocean_child




for those few of you who know Canada's Next Top Model existed, and the even fewer who actually watched it, you know that last night it came to a conclusion. Andrea, a 19 year old from Whitby, won the 100,000$ modelling contract and a photoshoot with a Canadian fashion magazine.

personal rantCollapse )

last night, the host called Sisi, who is Asian and the ONLY non-white contestant left, was called an "exotic" beauty. today in the toronto star, each of the three final contestants is labelled as "the slim Andrea... spicy Sisi, 24, and sweet Alanna, 19." what a surprise that the "slim" and "sweet" models are white, while the "spicy" and "exotic" one is Asian. sure, she was a live wire and more energetic than the other girls, but that doesn't necessarily mean she should be described with the same characteristics that could describe a dish of food!

how about a bunch of pictures so you guys can make your own judgements about who would
make the best modelCollapse )

this isn't a post to bash people who like watching these shows. i just hope to start a discussion about why you watch these sorts of shows and what you enjoy about them. tell me what you think!

Rise of Raunch [ July 18th @ 10:44am ]

_viola
This article appeared in last Sunday's paper here in Ireland. It's peppered with references to Dublin, but I think it's an really excellent article. I feel like giving a copy of it to every teenager I see...



    RISE OF RAUNCH

    This year, over the St Patrick’s Day festival, I had the dubious pleasure of covering nightlife in the capital city, from the on-street vomitting in Temple Bar to a rave in the Point Depot, from early houses to teenage discos to gay bars. The only element of all of this that saw me tut tut with pursed lips and a shaking head was, naturally, the under-18 disco at Wesley rugby club in Donnybrook. The much patroned and much scrutinised disco is of course, not the only one of its ilk in the country, but it is perhaps the most visible. Crowds of young teens line the D4 street and await entrance, hopping off the 46A bus, naggins of vodka in hand, and heading to the adjacent petrol station to stock up on red bull, chewing gum, condoms and cigarettes. It would not be quite so desperate a scenario if the young female patrons, most of whom are just skimming puberty, were not dressed like - and there is no other way of saying this - whores. They wear garters, suspenders, skirts that barely cover what they're meant to, push up bras, see-through tops, bunny ears, ironic angel wings, stilletto heals and endless lipgloss. Watching them strut drunkenly into a night of sloppy kisses and oral sex, sneaky drinks and badly rolled joints, I tried to put a word on how I felt. Then I got it - sad. Recently, Ariel Levy has managed to better articulate this personal feeling of discomfort, and a further universal one in her book ‘Female Chauvinist Pigs: Women And The Rise Of Raunch Culture.’

Guerilla Girls [ July 11th @ 6:18pm ]

youampersandme
This isn't quite fashion related, but I thought you girls would enjoy it. I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Tate Modern in London, where I learned, among many other things, more about the Guerilla Girls. Under cut are photographs and info from the GuerillaGirls.com website. I urge you to find out more about these amazing girls.

edith head, 1897-1981 [ July 11th @ 10:44am ]

ocean_child
i was watching rear window last night and absolutely loved it. i love hitchcock and james stewart and most of all, the wardrobe. one of the best costume designers ever, Edith Head, designed many of hitchcock's costumes, including vertigo, the birds and to catch a thief. after looking more into her life recently, i discovered she's basically my style inspiration because she's designed nearly all of my favourite wardrobes, at least from the 50s and 60s.



and while audrey hepburn's dresses were most often designed by hubert de givenchy, edith head won an oscar for best costumes for both sabrina and roman holiday. anyway, the reason i'm posting is to show you some of her lovely creations.
