Disney x Barneys New York

How AWESOME is this collaboration between Barneys New York and Disney?! Answer: Beyond AMAZING. Mickey and the rest of the Disney crew are such staples in everyone's life growing up that I consider the Disney characters classics just as much as I find a CHANEL black jacket an essential. I think the little cartoon genius with guest appearances from Sarah Jessica Parker, Pat McGrath, Guido Palau, Alber Elbaz and more! I'll be honest, I didn't this coming, but I'm really excited and happy with the products coming out of this partnership. I love the vinyl Mickey figurines by Paul Smith and Diane Von Furstenberg. I want one!

Halle Berry for Interview Russia November 2012

It's been awhile since I've seen Halle Berry in a movie or in a fashion magazine and after seeing her editorial for Interview Russia, I realized how much I've missed seeing her around. With a new beau and a daughter, you have to take a little hiatus, but looks like the actress is back and looking better than ever. I love this 70's glamour editorial of her donning looks from Prada to Gucci. Damn I hope I age just as well as she does...BANGIN'. 002 003 004 005

Quotes To Live By

1. Great men live dangerously, small men don't take chances.
2. As long as you're smart and you're educated, you have the same ability to be a billionaire, trillionaire, anything else. You don't need money to validate that. All you need is wealth of intelligence." - Pharrell Williams
3. You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. - Dr. Seuss
4. Weed, drugs, clothes, and "swag" does NOT make you a boss. Diplomas, degrees, and jobs do. - Kevin Hart
5. You might be poor, your shoes might be broken, but your mind is a palace. -Frank McCourt

Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2013

Balenciaga's presentation last month was probably my favorite collection of the Spring/Summer 2013 season. I loved the simplicity and slight femininity of Nicolas Ghesquière's collection. We'll definitely be seeing a lot of these pieces both on the red carpet and in magazines be it for editorials or on the cover. We've already seen Kirsten Stewart, a Balenciaga favorite (for some reason I have no idea why) rocking some of the latest from the runway presentation and while the whole look doesn't look AMAZING, she sure does look good in the opening look.

I came across this blog a few months ago and I fell in love with the creator's concept, Pokemon! While it brings me back to my childhood, I love how Francis integrates different cartoon characters from the cartoon into both high fashion and commercial ads and editorials. Fun and quirky. I've been clicking next for the past hour just going through all of the stuff Francis has done. GENIUS! View more here.

Cara Delevingne for Style.Com/Print

Cara is one of the models you just want to have a good time with. Clearly the young model has personality and I'm sure it's what the fashion industry loves about her most since she has designers like Dsquared, Chanel, Versace, and Burberry behind her. If she's BFF's with Azealia Banks, she's coo wid me.

Barney's Fall/Winter 2012 "Out of the Office" Lookbook

Barney's is personally one of my favorite places to shop. Their collection of merchandise has something for everyone, but also provides customers with a particular taste the chance to shop for exclusive and unique designers. It's pretty much difficult to leave that place empty handed and their new FW 12 mens lookbook doesn't help. I love each and every single look and how they were styled. Classic, fun, and smart. I need to invest in a double breasted jacket, a turtleneck sweater, and a leather jacket stat. If I had an endless amount of income, clearly you'd know where to find me.

Kate Moss for Vanity Fair December 2012

VF Magazine almost always has the best covers. Their portraits like this one of Kate Moss are always wall art worthy. The amazing duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott shot the flawless supermodel and clearly the results delivered. How amazingly beautiful and effortless can she be?! Then again she always looks amazingly effortless... so jelly. I'm a little surprised she was interviewed by Jaime Fox among all people, but I'm dying to read the interview in which she touches on everything from sex, drugs to ex-flame Johnny Depp. Definitely need this issue and that cover blown up as wall art.

Kati Nescher for Vogue Paris November 2012

I love a good minimalistic, black and white editorial. Just like Kate Upton, Kati Nescher sure is popping up everywhere from CHANEL, Tom Ford, to Proenza Schouler. I'm not too sure if I like how Emanuelle Alt styles her shoots overall, but I will say that I enjoyed how she played with proportions, textures, and leather. Edgy, strong, chic, and modern all at the same time. There's definitely some ensembles I can picture Alt herself rocking. J'aime tout le cuir!

Clément Chabernaud for Elle Man Mexico November 2012

Clément Chabernaud is probably my favorite male model right now. Besides the fact that he's 100% French, I love how he photographs. His versatility from high fashion to commercial shows how much range he has, but besides his modeling capabilities, I love the looks in his editorial for Elle Man Mexico. From Ferragamo, Louis Vuitton, Gucci to Prada, Clément showcases the best looks from some of the best brands. I love the Louis Vuitton ensemble...
