New Obsession: Francisco Lachowski


I've had my eye on male model, Francisco Lachowski for awhile now and he seems to be popping up everywhere. Even my friends like Jen, ask me about him. The 19 year-old Brazilian beauty definitely has the looks and personality. Thought these were great shots of him at the Ford studios in NYC. Enjoy. (you too Jen...)

New Movies: Midnight in Paris & Last Night

Directed by Massy Tejedin featuring Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Eva Mendes & Guillaume Canet.

Crystal Renn for Vogue Mexico


Is Crystal even plus size anymore? If so, I don't really see it. Do you? After nabbing her first Vogue cover for Vogue Mexico, which was shot by David Roemer, the supermodel is continuing to take the fashion world by storm. Like Coco and Sasha, the girl can give us some good poses and I love the editorial she did with her Vogue cover debut. She def doesn't look like all the other models out there right now, so I hope to continue seeing more of her.

Anna Wintour for The Wall Street Journal

"You can make a film in Hollywood without Steven Spielberg's blessing, and you can publish software without Bill Gates's blessing, but you can't succeed in fashion without Anna's blessing."

Anna Wintour's interview and in-depth profile with WSJ is probably one of my favorite ones she has done, besides The September Issue. Joshua Levine delivers an insightful look into the Editor-In-Chief's life and what it's like to be probably the biggest name in the fashion industry. If your a huge Wintour fan like myself, I HIGHLY recommend reading it. Such an inspiration. (Isn't the photo above of Anna, Daphne, and Karl such a great candid shot? love it!)

New Obsession: SHOES SHOES SHOES!!

I've never really been a huge sneaker head or shoe addict...until now. I'm seeing so many amazing shoes on blogs, editorials, online, and in stores, it's literally making me want to go one a giant shoe binge. It's a bit overwhelming since I want a TON, like these Duckie Brown oxfords, Dolce & Gabanna Lace ups, or these Prada leather chukka boots!! -_-" Anywho, I love this blog post Nam did with men's shoes, it literally made my go crazy, plus it reassured me that those Prada espadrille shoes were the it shoe of the ss 11 season. I'd die to have another pair of monk-strap shoes, those infamous color blocked Jill Sanders, a good man gladdie, and a pair of vintage looking Blazers by Nike. My collection of boat shoes is a bit cray cray, so I'll lay off of those for awhile. sigh..

Vera Wang & Whitney Port for Chelsea Lately.

You know Chelsea always bring the LOL's and I loved the interviews she had with fashion designer, Vera Wang, and my gal, Whitney Port. Vodka, Wedding gowns, Whit's new man, Ben, new books, and Oliva Palermo?!! MUST WATCH.

Gwen Stefani for Elle UK


If I could be a mother, I'd be one hot mama like Gwennie Gwen Gwen. Not only is she a mother of two, a multi-platinum artist, a fashion designer for two successful brands, but she's also a great model. Say what you will, but at 41 years-old, the lady is banging. I love her editorial she did with Elle UK and the cover is fun and non-traditional with her sideways. I highly suggest seeing her in concert, she's always full of energy and she's awesome live. I remember seeing her at her Harujuku's lover tour while being a few months pregnant with her first child, Kingston, and about a year ago when she did her reunited tour with her band, No Doubt and she was INCREDIBLE. Speaking of no doubt, I CANNOT wait for their new material. Are you as juiced as I am? In the mean time, enjoy all her fabulousness with her spread in Elle UK, and some of my fav music vids by my gal.

New Blogger: Brad Goreski

Brad+Goreski+2011+Art+Elysium+Heaven+Gala+JxBvAwKrUmalSeems like Rachel Zoe's ex-assistant has not only decided to go on his own, but he's decided to join the blogger world! And what a delight, with only 3 blog entries, he's become another basic read for me. His blog is a great given that he basically talks about his days at shoots and working with some of the hottest celebs like Adele and Liya Kebede. I think it's soo interesting and soo engaging, when they talk about their days and what they do, because it feels like I'm right there with them! Success stories are the best too!

I remember his days with Camp Zoe, and we all remember Tay Tay. She was the best and practically lead the whole team. I miss her so much, and I highly doubt she would sign up for another reality show, but I hope Brad does! He's just as entertaining.

Check out Brad's blog, here.

Coco Rocha for The Sunday Telegraph

Here's a quick spread Coco did for The Sunday Telegraph and as always, she's workin and twerkin those poses. That's one popular Lanvin dress and I love that bright orange Prada number. Love it.

New Obsession: Arthur Kulkov.


You probably think I have a new obsession quicker than I change my underwear, but I can't help it! So many cuties, talent, and stylish people! For example, we have fashion model, Arthur Kulkov. Not sure's if he's just has yummy as Kerry Degman, or Chad White, but he's definitely stylish, which is what I like about him. What guy wears hot pink socks? BRAVE/stylish men do.

Help Support Japan

Doesn't the photo above instill unbelievable sadness and fear in your body?! Such a tragedy. I got these amazing photos from The Atlantic, and couldn't help but post another blog about the awful 8.9 earthquake that happened almost a week ago in Northern Japan. My thoughts and prayers go to all those affected by the incredibly heart wrenching natural disaster. Do your part and help donate to the Red Cross here. Every cent counts. Thankfully the fashion industry has done their part by donating generously with giant retailers such as H&M, Uniqlo (25.6 million), and Coach (5 million). DO YOUR PART.

Tyra for Type F

Not only has Tyra dropped her last name (Banks), but she also premiered her new online-magazine website, Type F. The new online source features everything from beauty to fashion with emphasis on all sorts of colors and sizes of women, of course. I practically died when I saw this video about the infamous "Trench" with ALT. Gotta love the KICKY part!!! HILAR. "What is a KICKY?!" Tyra is def an entrepreneur, remember when she used to sing? FAIL.

In the studios with Isabel Marant.

As a huge Marant fan thanks to my DIANI girls, I was quite curious as to see how the layout of the infamous Parisian designer's studio looked liked. Thanks to Backyard Bill, we now have an insiders-look into where all the magic happens! I still can't get over those bow heels and cuffed pants. MAYYJOR.

Rhianna for Vogue US April 2010

I was so looking forward to this issue of Vogue, with Rihanna on the cover, but from the looks of the editorial, I'm not too pleased. Where's the fashion? Where's the glamour? (both questions in Anna Wintour and ALT voices) How upsetting. The shoot was styled by Vogue's Fashion Director, Tonne Goodman, who I am a huge fan of, but unfortunately the spread was a bit lackluster. Do you agree? Plus, what's up with that hideous wig she's wearing? Ehhh, lame.

A Day with Swagger 306's Guerre.

I'm a huge fan of Guerre's and I love love love his posts titled "Sick Shoe Game." Def a fashion favorite and street style to many including myself. Here's an interview the blogger did with photographer, Oliver Lalin during fashion week in Paris.

Tao Okamoto for Bergdorf Goodman Spring 2011

I'm glad to see Asian supermodel, Tao Okamoto on Bergdorf's Spring 2011 look book, because not only is she sporting one look for Prada, but three! Guess Prada was the "it" collection for Spring 2011. If that's what Bergdorfs says, that's what goes. BG's lookbook is filled with nothing but color with collections from Jil Sander, DVF, Celine, Fendi, and more.

Whitney Port & Ben Nemtin

I love me a pair of couple cuties like The Hills and The City's alum, Whitney Port and The Buried Life's Ben Nemtin. How cute are they together?! Not only do they have that California style to a 'T,' but I love how they basically have the same laid back, cool guy/girl style. IDK, am I weird for posting this little blog entry about them? I hope I don't seem stalkerish - PS, Whit what is up with those flip flops!? no, no, noo..

Unplugged: Nicole Scherzinger

I really wish PCD never broke up. I was a huge fan of Carmit, Jessica, and Nicoles' and I still am. Despite her second attempt in becoming a solo artist, there's no doubt Nicole can sing and these unplugged version's of PCD's I Hate This Part Right Here and her single, Poison definitely prove that.

All Saints

I love good outerwear pieces, and All Saint has an amazing collection for men, especially in their lookbook. Their leather pieces are the best. But I still need to save, especially if they're leather jackets (which I still need...badly) are ranging from $400 to $1000. Toggle coats, pea coats, and leather jackets, OH MY! sigh
