Micheal Pitt for Interview Magazine, shot by Craig McDean.
I love the first shot with the pylon imposed over Micheal Pitt's (gorgeous) face, would have like to seen more of that, the rest of the editorial gets very "samey" very fast.

Love this Complex cover. Nicki Minaj isn't a cartoon. Its a really simple way of saying "yes Nicki, we all now realize you are the future and we take you seriously!"

If ever there was a fitting tribute to a late fashion icon, "The Head of Isabella Blow, 2002" is it. Dramatic, gothic, and grandiose, the artwork makes use of fifteen taxidermied animals (including a rattlesnake, rat, raven, and six magpies), wood and faux moss, and a Manolo Blahnik heel and lipstick tube both from Blow's personal stash. When spotlighted against a blank surface, the work creates the recognizable silhouette of Blow herself, wearing what looks to be one of her beloved Phillip Treacy hats. Recently donated to London's National Portrait Gallery by British artists (and friends of Blow) Tim Noble and Sue Webster, the macabre work goes on display tomorrow, inviting the public to not only admire the fashion muse, but also contemplate her preoccupation with death and beauty. It will remain on view through March 13.
With all the recent devotion to the late Alexander McQueen, its nice to see his muse and Icon in her own right, Isabella Blow being remembered in her own special way...
Its nice to have a pretty open minded President isn't it? Our girl Mary has politely declined the offer to be Grand Marshall in NYC's Saint Patrick's Parade, due to the fact that the Parade organizers do no allow gay groups to participate in the event.
President McAleese has been known for her work with Gay Rights groups, as well as Human Rights Campaigns, since way back in the day when She and Mary Robinson helped Senator David Norris decriminalize Homosexuality in Ireland in 1993. (Cheers for that)
Im so glad my parents voted for President McAleese back in the day, she has made a huge difference, well, in my opinion anyways.
Mary this ones for you!
Talk about polar opposites? Kerry Katona & the brilliant Roisin Murphy at yesterday's Giles show during LFW. The only thing these two women have in common is the fringe!

Dictaphone Parcel is an animation based on a sound recorded with a dictaphone travelling secretly inside a parcel. As the hidden recorder travels through the global mail system, from London to Helsinki, it captures the unexpected. We hear a mixture of abstract sounds, various types of transport and even discussions between the mail workers. The animation visualizes this journey by creating an imaginary documentary.
Dictaphone Parcel was awarded the Passion Pictures Prize in London, in February 2010
I LOVE this! The sounds, the snippets of conversation. Totally one of those "damn I wish I thought of that" moments"
Okay I know Christmas is months away, and normally I hate anything Giftmas related but Come on! Wallace & Gromit! On stamps! How can I not post this?
See things like this get me excited for Christmas. Lidl selling mince pies, not so much.
93 days to Christmas! Better get shoppin!
Mary Katrantzou is one of my favourite young designers at the moment. The first time I ever saw her work was in AnOther Magazine, when the amazing Tilda Swinton wore one of her dresses and necklaces for a shoot feature all up and coming designers. And she is definitely on the up...
Her latest S/S collect from last week's London Fashon Week seems to have been inspired by, well, her sitting room by the looks of things. The fabrics for each dress has been digitally printed, very similar to Brooke & Basso's work, with amazing art deco interiors. This theme was carried through with chandelier inspired jewellery and lamp shade skirts.
The use of colour is stunning, so vivid and vibrant. I have to say this was my favour collect of LFW...
I have to agree with the crazed Australian Christina fan who brought 250 copies of her album so he could tell Perez Hilton to fuck himself. I don't know what all the hate is about, I downloaded Bionic last week and I really liked it. Maybe this is Christina's Impossible Princess? Either way thumbs up from me, and thats all that matters at the end of the day...
I was going to post the album track her, but her voice is pitch perfect, so this live version is even better than the album version...
This on the other hand is a fucking mess! Seriously? That's your poster? I'll still propably go see the film though...
