The Pivsters

The great Sasha Pivovarova has an editorial shot by Meisel in this upcoming of January issue of Vogue. In it she's with Vampire Weekend and The Horrors. I'll not mention the others because they suck. However, I DO like the the shot of Sasha with Chester French in Balmain. Gosh! How shameless of them to use Sasha's coolness just to sell!

As for Monseur Meisel... where the po-mo at? I am disappointed!

Oh! And whoever did the text for the print on this shot should be fired! Hello! Are you new?!!

There comes a time when a slaving junior editor enjoys the benefit of a Coolhunt.
It's only natural to show and tell.

Remember the time when I told you about Little J's shoot with us? And remember the time when it killed me NOT to share? Well now that the ferocious feline is out of the satchel and published in FASHION mag and ELLE Girl Japan... here are the shots from work.

say hi to...

"beautiful to be remembered and to capture and to display and to be forgotten to be remembered and then forgotten then remembered..."

A gaze that bore a hole in your soul

The pictures will survive us all

Rest in peace

Earlier this week my editors had me viewing and IDing a billion exit snaps of editors after the shows. I hope you never find yourself in this situation, on a deadline, without knowing how the hell Anna and Carine look like. So here are a few photographs from work of the editors you and your mother should know... for starters. I apologize for the cropping, I'm really not at liberty to show you these and it breaks my heart not to be able to show you guys what they are wearing. Its kind of like having the best most amazing boyfriend in the whole wide world ever... but then not having anyone to tell about it!

Screw your cable reality 'stars'!!! These are the people that need to be plastered on your wall. Even the girls of Sex and The City would be like chickens running around with their heads cut off without these lovely ladies!

Dirty Sexy Left Bank

Now, In honor of the lovely little EM getting fuckwasted in Paris as we speak... I shall tell you about my forgotten article in the August issue of MR Magazine.

Its practically sex in a box... a very artistic box. I mean, just climbing the hotel stairs is like having an orgasm that only Picasso and his friends can begin to fathom!

So if ever you find yourself in the Left Bank of Paris and having a conversation with a French man about eating his baguette and riding his Eiffel Tower... make sure you check yourself inside the Apostrophe Hotel. It'll be better than anything the French man can ever offer... unless of course that man is Gaspard Ulliel.

Bulleted List
  • Expect Vodianova's boobies. (GASP- Not Lara Stone this time)
  • Ernest Hemingway's XY chromosomes! (It has nothing to do with Geraldo's Mustache!)
  • Berlin Art Scene- (just in time to party at the Wall)
  • Brave New World Beauty
  • Alexa Chung
XX- Check Florence and her machines
The Warrior and The Wolf- If the ends of Earth could be captured, it would be here.

Missed it

A year has passed since news of these bad boys were relayed in a rushed hallway conversation at FIDM.

A year in waiting only to miss them.
What a bitch!

O'Hallow's Eve

A last minute masquerade invite results in duct tape, stolen plastic plants, and sparkly fancy pants. Did I mention the giraffe?

Do enjoy your demons once Halloween comes creeping in.

New York

I am thoroughly disappointed with my designers this Spring!

So I shall release my frustrations in a form of letter.

Dear Thakoon,
I love you but... Stay out of Nicolas Ghesquiere's closet.

Dear Lacoste,
Had it not been for Sean and Behati and a few of your Cape Cod Gatsby inspired friends, I would have placed you on the X List.

Dear Oscar, Ralph and Diane,
Thank you for showing in New York.

Dear Peter Som,
It seems you are the only one with your head right.

Dear DooRi,
You should be edgy more often. It looks good on you.

Dear Paris and Milan,
I can't wait till you come.

Dear em,
I hope you find something in London.

Manila Art Scene

Heathcliff likes it dark and brooding.

Geraldine Javier's gallery opening at WEST Gallery.

I was never one for the bugs. But this one was...
How wondrous 'twas to have met these interesting people.

Lyra Garcellano
Shes a painful riot this one. Fancied my blue Thakoon. Fancied her work.
