Alexander McQueen: Noble Farewell



Annie Leibovitz captures McQueen’s final collection (as posted previously) in the latest issue of US Vogue. Just Beautiful.

Of Snakes and Men






This immediately reminded me of the shoot the girls did on the very first season of ANTM. I still think Elise should have won.

Vivienne Westwood




Her last collection was one of her more confounding ones IMHO. Still spectacular though.

I really admire Westwood's unabashed use of color.

You can't ever go wrong with B&W.

That rose dress is spectacular! As is the peacock one the more I look at it...

Parker Power






How can anyone forget about the amazing Vogue bridal photo shoot in Sex and the City movie that had Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker's alter ego) wearing some of the most iconic dresses of the past generation? Well she's back (SJP, not Carrie) in Vogue promoting the new SATC2 movie, this time in more contemporary designs.

From the same collection...

I can't write about McQueen (or Galliano, for that matter) without mentioning those who came before, namely Westwood.

Alexander McQueen




He may be gone, but Alexnader "Lee" McQueen is far from forgotten. I keep thinking that I've seen every single possible collection and I keep stumbling upon another long, lost one to fall in love with. This particular collection reminds of me McQueen's fascination with birds. A fascination that we saw executed so flawlessly and effortless in his last (LAST) collection. Apparently, it's an obsession that began with the Hitchcock classic, "Birds."

Killers Kill, Dead Men Die















I love this editorial spread from Vanity Fair. Shot by none other than Annie Leibovitz, it features some of Hollywood's leading men and most promising starlets in a decidedly dark, "Road to Perdition," "Godfather" feel.

Peggy Guggenheim's Venice








Venice is my second favorite city in the world (Paris is #1, duh), so I was quite happy to see the city featured so beautifully in this spread from Harper's Bazaar.
