My brain is burned out from all my Cultural Studies and Communications papers, but here goes…
Phoenix ‘alien’ is unsuccessfully acculturated (enter aesthetically pleasing scene with some Classic/Last Supper/ Ballet break) then some exchange where the girl (who is a bird) tells Kanye that she has to leave, but Kanye whines (she’s a bird, Kanye). Then the love scene (bestiality?). She rises from her ashes (she’s a Phoenix, get it?) and leaves Kanye running in his loafers.
Run-on-sentences, comma splices and all — the coloring, photography, and composition of most of the shots were pleasing. But can Kanye please tell me why he went from “Power” (2 mins) to 30-minute-“Runaway”??
Also love the Stephen Sprouse (for Louis Vuitton) handwriting of the title.
Erm, I’m taking a wee break from school stuffs to point out, that firstly, Spring 2010 was all about cats (Miu Miu), but the literary world has opted to trend frail little critters (or the derogatory term: “rodents”) instead. Case in point, Rakoff and Sedaris both have new books out, and lo and behold:
Oh, and Alex Prager’s “Spellbound” for W? Resort collections were taken through Hitchcock’s “Birds” and sprinkled with some kaleidoscopic color explosion and were then warped into some Dali surrealist dream. That sentence barely made sense (midterm haze), but I’m going to let it chill.
During the summer, Eliza and I had discussed outfit posts, because we’re blog nerds like that. Outfit posts are totally cool and all, but we tend to prefer candids where the person is totally caught off-guard, or not even aware of the shot; the vibes are just so much more carefree. There are also so many bloggers out there who take an outfit post to the next level, for example, Elizabeth, and her adorable pictures of her No 6 clogs chilling in a field. I guess just standing in front of a camera is très weird for me (I keep trying to get used to it, and yeah, I have posted staged shoots of myself, but I’ll take a shot I’m totally unaware of any day).
Case in point, here are some birthday (!!) candids that (thank god) somebody else took. I’m posting these because, through these photos, I discovered that: a) I layer tons around my neck, and b) I take my sweetasstime to peel the layers off once indoors.
This scarf is from that beautiful Marc Jacobs’s Fall 2009 Sprouse-inspired collab that I ADORED. I picked up the scarf while in Paris back in the summer of oh-nine. Everybody who works in a Marc Jacobs’s store is so damn effortlessly cool. It’s not fair.
This next blue-themed portion of my post is a dedication to http://iheartenidcoleslaw.tumblr.com/ whose tumblr is the mostest (her blog is pretty rad too). Anywho, bluehairextensiongift! It clips into my hair and it’s hilariously too long right now.
(Yeah, I tried one last time — for serious, this is still weird.)
Ok, so, I am in the process of editing photos from a recent shoot, but until then, ummm reading break? All I have been doing is sitting in a fluorescent, poorly ventilated cubicle studying personality and interpersonal relationships. Everytime I open my computer to study lecture slides, it cries. I decided to take a little study break and go book shopping.
A book on LAWNS! I mean, they’re everywhere in Sci-fi films, so WHY NOT?
The best line thus far, “A cultural history of Americans’ thirty-million-acre fetish, from colonial times to the present day.”
I paired this book with a Chanel S2011 look.
Neon and neon » Proenza Schouler Resort 2011 and Tom Wolfe’s Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby.
Breakfast of Champions and JAMES LANCE!!!
The Room and Darth Vader!
This is my upcoming book cover for: I’ve Got a Bone to Pick with You!
I’ll be back to regz fashion programming, but for serious, reading is muy importante, guys! I am thinking of starting a reading group — you pick a book, provide a photo with you and said book (even plan a look around the cover, theme, whatever!), and a discussion to follow.
