Things that I am loving in October, my birthday month! Tom Ford Private Blend Lipsticks. What's not to like about this picture? Tres Helmut Newton.
A Single Man. Yes I know I'm slow off the mark, but didn't manage to see it at the movies so finally rented it on DVD. Beautiful story that manages to capture the heart and the pathos and of the book, shot through the gorgeously luxe lens of Mr Tom Ford. Beautiful sets, clothes, and people - mise en scene to die for!
Robert Mapplethorpe. I just finished reading Just Kids and I cried. Robert was a beautiful talented angel with raggedy wings whose photographs draw you in to their endless inky pools of liquid black, which captures me in a way that Caravaggio's paintings with their striking use of chiaroscuro. You can get lost in that darkness.
Alison Mosshart & Jamie Hince for Zadig & Volatire. Fabulous shots by Olivier Zahm.
Victoria Beckham eye wear. Need I elaborate?!
Julianne Moore for Bulgari. Luxe-a-licious.
Stevie Nicks, and Fleetwood Mac. Having just watched the doco on the making of Rumours again, am totally entranced by the music, the harmonies and the raw emotion of the band during this time. And of course, Stevie is the quintessential rock chick. (Gee, she looks like Rachel Zoe here!)
