Snakes on a page

How Jungle Book Chic is this editorial, Tribal Python, for Guapo magazine? I love the face and body paint and the vibrant yellow of the python just sets the whole thing off. Shot by Ignacio Lozano.


54, best number there is baby...

Wahey! 54 is my lucky number. Thanks everybody thats following WHAM. Since I put up the blog counter a few weeks ago, we've had about 1000 visits a week, I had no idea so many people look at our little blog. Anyways thanks for the support.


Vinyl. Its not just for parents!

I am in love with this wall stickers from Hu2 Designs. Who new a little vinyl could transform an entire room.



So if you haven't seen it by now Rihanna's Rude Boy video (above) is very very similar to M.I.A's 2007 video for Boyz. So everyones has being calling Rihanna's version a rip-off and now Maya has got in on the action and retweeted something one of her fans said:

I don't know if @kNAneedsREEBOK is trying to copy M.I.A's writing style or just can't spell? Anyways below is M.I.A's Boyz video. On a sidenote M.I.A linked another tweet of hers to the website for her record label N.E.E.T Recordings although if you are anyway hungover then don't click on the link. It's very M.I.A i.e Mental!

The Honourable Daphne Guinness

Yesterday I posted about the amazing Daphne Guinness having a showcase of all her couture (I know, amazing) so when I was looking up images of Daphne I came across this wonderful editorial from Italian Vogue shot by the one and only Steven Klein.


Art without Limits!

When you think of fearless artists, Grace Jones and Chris Cunningham would usually come to mind. I can't believe this is my first time see this amazing editorial from Dazed & Confused magazine. I saw Grace at Electric Picnic 08 and the performance was so brilliantly mental. 40 minutes late. Different Philip Tracey hat for each song. it was just such fun, made friends with a woman called Barbara who ran the creps van, I meet her the next night and she gave me a free pancake. anyways love the body modification and Grace's transformation in these shots.


Full Tilt Boogie.

The Sandpit from Sam O'Hare on Vimeo.

The Sandpit by Sam O'Hare. Tilt shift photography at its best. New York City even looks amazing in miniature form...


Wher for art thou?

From US Vogue, Annie Leibovitz shoots supermodel Coco Rocha and Italian ballet dancer Roberto Bolle as they reenact Romeo & Juliet. I can't get over how perfect it is. I'm talking bout Roberto's arse in the third picture by the way, the rest of the editorial is nice too.


Grace > Amber

Amber Rose, model and Kayne West's hot GF, recreates Jean Paul Goude's iconic image of Grace Jones. At the end of the day there is only one Grace Jones and no one can compete, but Amber does have an amazing body, but still, shes no Grace.


Avoid that awkward morning conversation...

so many uses for post-its! this may be the best one!

Daphne Guinness' Showcase. Are you dying yet?

via The Cut

Daphne Guinness will exhibit 80 to 100 pieces from her clothing collection at F.I.T.'s museum from September 2011 through January 2012. The exhibit will include pieces by Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Comme des Garçons, Dolce & Gabbana, and Azzedine Alaïa. Better yet, the exhibit will be immortalized in a book by the awfully scholarly sounding Yale University Press, which for now is the closest we'll come to our dream of Daphne Guinness penning her own version of Eat, Pray, Love (by the way, who's excited for THAT movie?). F.I.T.'s chief museum curator will work with Guinness on the exhibit, and plans to highlight Guinness's particular fashion interests, ranging from sleeves and neck ruffles to accessories including hats, veils, and ribbons. Sounds like the Met's Costume Institute has some serious competition. Let's hope F.I.T.'s won't include the same long lines and feelings of claustrophobia

Oh my God I love this woman so much, this is all adding to my move to New York and live the dream dream of mine! I'm there.


Imma Be on da next level...

Via DivaReport

The Black Eyed Peas become the first duo or group in 19 years to plate three Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles from one album, as "Imma Be," from the act's "The E.N.D.," beelines 3-1.

The quartet set a record last year withh 26 successive weeks at No. 1 when "Boom Boom Pow" (12 weeks) was followed by "I Gotta Feeling" (14 weeks) atop the chart. The Peas' third single from "The E.N.D.," "Meet Me Halfway" peaked at No. 7 in November.

Wilson Phillips was the last duo or group to score three No. 1s from an album, when its self-titled debut spawned "Hold On," "Release Me" and "You're In Love" in 1990-91.

After nine weeks at No. 1, Ke$ha's "TiK ToK" tumbles to No. 2, one week shy of matching Debby Boone's 1977 hit "You Light Up My Life" for most weeks at No. 1 by a female's debut single.

Young Money's "BedRock" rises a spot 4-3, as does Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" (5-4). Lady Antebellum's "Need You Know" returns to the top five with a 6-5 upswing.

This song wrecked my head at first (like most Black Eyed Peas songs) then after a few listens and a few times on the dancefloor its really grown on me (again, like most B.E.P songs)

Sing it with me naw Imma Be, Imma Be, Imma Imma Be!


Mah guilty pleasure I aint goin no where!

So Me&C have a guilty pleasure/boarding on obsession with The Kardashians. And as Chelsea says herself they deliver their own babies. whats not to love.

G.A + Gaga = not so Gaga

Does anyone else thinks Lady Gaga was just too polite to say no thanks when Mr. Armani offers to make her tour costumes? They don't seem very Gaga to me, they just look like everything else that she has worn before. I always thought the Haus of Gaga concept was about pushing the envelope. Like Anna Wintour says "Fashion is always about looking forward, not looking back". Well just a thought. what do you think?


Fashion Baby

Is everybody loving the online live streaming of all the fashion shows? NYFW was amazing, the Rodarte show, shown on Nick Knight's SHOWstudio, was my favourite of the week. Anyways with LDN fashion week winding down, Milan is starting tomorrow with a bang. Prada is streaming live at 8pm Ireland time. watch it at
