Queen G Paltrow


According to Premiere.fr, Gwyneth Paltrow would have attended Spence School in NYC, in her teenage years. Does this sound familiar ? Well this is the school which inspired Gossip Girl author Cecily von Ziegesar …
I can see that … “Queen G spotted cuddling with mysterious British artist-wannabe on her holiday trip in London. Who wants to taste rosbeef ? XOXO … You know you love me”

Here another article about Gwyneth at Spence School, along with Jade Jagger.

Spotted in the Elle Décoration’s suite by Maison Martin Margiela


Il y a des jours où tu te dis que c’est vraiment cool d’habiter Paris. D’abord parce que les vendeurs à la sauvette aux pieds du Trocadéro te font la Tour Eiffel en plastique à 2€ (au lieu de 5€), mais aussi parce que prendre un verre au dernier étage du Palais de Chaillot, c’est chic. C’est d’autant plus chic, lorsque ledit lieu est relooké par Maison Martin Margiela – itself- et que la vodka coule à flot.
Spotted donc, dans l’appartement de l’architecte, Jacques Carlu, qui s’offre une troisième jeunesse. Après Christian Lacroix, c’est Maison Martin Margiela qui le décore selon ses codes : blanc, argent, trompe l’œil, ironie ou détournement. Tout y est.
Les murs de la pièce principale sont entièrement recouverts de miroirs et une moquette trompe-l’œil imprimée parquet donne une dimension anamorphique. La terrasse adjacente, qui offre une vue spectaculaire sur la Tour Eiffel, est recouverte d’un gazon blanc dans lequel s’enfoncent des tabourets « pieds d’éléphant ». On est fan.

Un couloir, dissimulé par des trompe-l’œil, dessert une petite salle capitonnée de blanc qui protège un réfrigérateur vitré et la salle à manger où une table dressée est prête à accueillir, autour de candélabres, des convives d’un autre temps. Les murs sont recouverts de photocopies trompe-l’œil- décidément- de moulures d’un appartement Haussmannien. On s’attable ?

La suite ELLE Décoration par Maison Martin Margiela est ouverte au public jusqu’à fin octobre 20009 uniquement les samedis et dimanches de 14h à 19h (3€) et louée pour des manifestations privées.

Beauty Icon: Boy George


Please read this article from the bible style.com : Beauty Icon: Boy George
Make Up, Hair, Attitude : Boy George is definetely iconic (as far as you forget his recent pictures on DUI…).

Especially the make up reminds me of this Japanese artist named Pater Sato about whom I will soon post an article.
Also makes me think about that advertising from beverages brand Schweppes shot by Warren du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones in 2008. Bright idea, great result, but I doubt efficient towards the targeted audience.

Dance the Polka Dots


La Maison Martin Margiela introduced us its army of polka dots officers during the Fall-Winter 09 show in Paris, a couple of weeks ago.

Balenciaga also gave us a taste of this sexy outfit for our legs. Unfortunately, these last years, the polka dots had turned into an essential emo accessory (along with stripes and the combo black/white or black/bright colors). Still, fashion rules and successfuly reappropriates the pattern.

The catwalk is not the street though. And here are the pictures from the Facehunter that made me really consider the dotted tights. Adios opaque tights, next winter will uncover the golden ladies legs…

Chloe FW09


I loved the Chloe collection for Fall Winter 09 and I will probably write another posts or two about the inspiration and the looks.
First, let’s taste these 3 silhouettes. I feel like I’m in 1986. I see gorgeous women, independant, sexy, brilliant, with blonde soft light hair. I see American actresses and real ladies in men costumes.













Half A Woman


Half-shaved, half-long-haired…

Alice Dellal debuted this new haircut trend. The British itgirl is the daughter of Brazillian model Andrea Dellal and is reportedly dating Monaco heir Pierre Casiraghi.
She managed to catch the attention of the fashion trends observers with her bold punky look. Alice recently ran the catwalk for wild fashion designer Vivienne Westwood.

Here is Holly Stanton. This exquisite aggressive hairdo is gracefully balanced by her sweet face. No matter what her hair expresses, you just want to hug her.
Holly is American, young, and already a very talented photographer. You can see her work here

And then Brit hitmaker Natasha Bedingfield, who got married last week with her longtime boyfriend. No matter how mainstream she is, she somewhat managed to soften this alt hip hairdo.
