Gift wrapped kitty cats



Love this new ad for Nina Ricci: Ricci Ricci Fragrance.

Jessica Stam?! Cats?! Yeah!

Alright, while I'm at it this ad for Dior: Miss Dior Chérie (you know the perfume, magazine ads shot by the fabulous Tim Walker ♥) is pretty amazing. The fact that it's directed by Sophia Coppola takes no brain surgeon to figure out.
Is she sponsored by laduree? Perhaps. Do I care? No. Do I now want macaroons? Likely.

You've got issues


I just got around to watching the infamous 'September Issue'. And I also needed an excuse to post this photo. Anna's face says it all. Alexa's face just says 'AWKWARDDDDD'.

Apart from now being an utter Grace Coddington convert (the woman is AMAZING), I was surprised at the creativity of her vision, particularly her attitude towards the images in Vogue. She seems to have such a forward thinking mindset, which honestly I do not acossiate with Vogue US very often.
This was clear in the Steven Meisel photoshoot that she fights for throughout the film, 'Paris, Je T'aime' by Steven Meisel.

A dreamy cast of models (Coco Rocha, Guinevere Van Seenus, Caroline Trentini, Sasha Pivovarova, Gemma Ward, and Agyness Deyn) and similarly etheral photographs. Yeah, I'm in love ♥. They shouldn't have cut the photographs out, they should have cut Sienna out and devoted the whole magazine to this shoot! Especially the first group photo on chez lounges which was cut, but was amazing. Anyone know where I can find it?

















p.s. I kind of loved how Coco Rocha kept appearing everywhere. My favourite moment was when she popped out from behind a board when Jean Paul Gaultier shouted 'Cocoooooo'.
