Shades of Cray

Love these crazy lipstick colors from MAC in this shoot for Hunger magazine. Hunger Fashion Editor Alexander Harley teamed up with make up artist Suzy Rycroft, senior artist at MAC, and made these seemingly unwearable colors, black, blue, purple and even green, really desirable. This model pulls off these odd shades with minimal eye make up and looks beautiful. Personally, I recently bought a purple lipstick just like the one in the picture and I am in love with it. But now, I am considering black..MAC black MAC blue MAC purpleMAC green

Beach day

It’s no secret that I’m an admirer of Elin Kling, the all-round talent from Sweden. She’s the creative director of the magazine Styleby and its latest editorial, in which we can see Martha Streck shot by Martin Lidell, speaks for itself. The stylist Nike Fröhling-Felldin did a great job in reflecting Elin’s simplistic, cool and feminine style. This editorial also shows that simplicity does not have to mean wearing black and/or white but just having a good set of basics, which is exactly what I would want on the beach besides a Bikini. Hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to get my hands on a copy of Styleby in the near future.

Candice or nothing

Gorgeous Candice in this really cool, really chill and yet incredibly fashionable editorial for Muse magazine (summer 2012 issue). The styling is very creative and has an intriguing ambiguity about it: These are some very feminine looks yet all have a masculine twist. Also, the looks are very edgy and sexy but they have a man repelling quality about them.
This woman can’t not look sexy which is why I love her in this natural, more approachable look, as opposed to her all dolled up posing as a sex kitten (remember her in her short short denim shorts in Terry Richardson’s studio? Overkill.)
Here goes, Candice Swanepoel shot by Cass Bird and styled by Ethel Park. My hat is off to all of them.

Haute Mess

This is the behind the scenes video of an editorial called “Haute Mess” for Vogue Italia (March 2012) featuring among others Abbey Lee Kershaw, Coco Rocha and some pretty outrageous styling. To me it looks like a post-apocalyptic setting. A deserted town in southern California where the models died and became fashion (and fast food?) addicted zombies. Mesmerizing.

look.. it’s Behati

The lovely Behati Prinsloo shot by Nicolas Moore in vibrant colors and prints for Elle France. I’ve been in love with her ever since I first watched the legendary Corner video.

speaking of acid

Craig McDean shoots Abbey Lee Kershaw with rainbow hair and some very glamorous, rich, yet edgy styling by Edward Enninful for W Magazine (march 2012). Brilliant.

Mr. and Mrs. Handsome’s Wedding

With all their handsome friends. Sheila Marquez and Christian Brylle getting married in an Elle editorial with some very inspiring styling for summer. Easy and bright. Now I really feel like picnicking.

Almost white

Beautiful and mysterious looking Daphne Groeneveld in pastels, whites and almost whites. Love to see the Givenchy shark tooth necklace in action. I applaude the styling on this editorial. The brights look sophisticated and she looks a little bit like a tough yet relaxed surfer lounging on that chair (like what Riccardo Tisci had in mind for the S/S 2012 collection of Givenchy), instead of looking sweet and dreamy, which is usually associated with soft hues.

look.. Free People goes NYC

I’m in the middle of applying for summer school at NYU so I thought this lookbook would be appropriate, as kitsch as it might be. Nice styling though, especially the red jacket and the blue dress.

to the future

I used to try to imagine what people would wear in the future. I pictured long capes, huge shoulder pads, tall boots, visors and rubber leggings (I guess I thought the 80s would still be wearable in the future).

I found this editorial Dani by Chris Nicholls for Flare (January 2012) and I thought to myself: We must be in the future.

Sure my prediction was not very accurate. But here we have a dress covered in giant sequins that look like fish scales paired with a hairy necklace, an all-over metallic look with super chunky wedges, a checkered fake fur jacket and a sequined dress with silicone applications and finally glittery shoes with a crazy pattern leggings combined with a furry skirt and a python jacket.

Brilliant styling!

If this is the future, I’m in.
