Simple, yet fresh. The styling is perfect, particularly the loosely tailored trousers. Sasha needed another cover that wasn’t a reprint and I don’t know how such a successful model like her doesn’t get more. She certainly deserves more than she earns. I’m not going to lie, she looks super adorable with this wig. I don’t think I could ever get enough of Sasha Pivovarova.

Lara is such a beauty. I particularly like when she’s styled harshly and her main features stand out, but when Lara is captured as soft, lovely, and cool it’s even that much better. She is such a stunning human being.

One item or fashion that is simply timeless is the sailor stripes. Clement poses as a sexy sailor in the likes of Burberry Prorsum and vintage Le Muvais Garçons. Studly.

I’ve had a change of heart on my blog. I’m not going to simply give up or back down on it. What would be the point of giving in when I love it so much? So, first order of business: here’s Rihanna’s Vogue cover and editorial. The cover is so Vogue US to me, slightly awkward, but better than what I was expecting. She looks wonderful in the Dolce & Gabbana gown and her hair doesn’t even bother me that much; the contrast is great. Her pose on the other hand could use some work. What both the cover and editorial show is that she’s definitely no model. The first shot of her bending back is great, but from there it turns mediocre and poorly shot and styled that the shots seem better suited as outtakes from an album cover shoot. What is wrong with Annie? Bring me models, please and thank you.
Two steps forward, three steps back, Vogue.

My lack of posts can be attributed to Spring Break in Philadelphia and NYC. So many fashionable and well dressed people on the street of New York. It was amazing. Anyway, taking a break from the blog for a little while. I’ll probably be bored and supply a few posts here and there until I come back full time, but I really need to take a break from the blog. Here’s a little Sasha P for your time.
Gisele is lovely and soft on the April cover of Vogue Paris, shot by Inez & Vinoodh. The white lace Dolce & Gabbana racks up another cover, and beautifully done. The cover is almost Vogue US-esque and looks like Testino shot it, yet I’m really liking the sweet simplicity of it all.

Justin Wu with Models.com created another adorable lip-syncing and dance video of the flawless models at fashion week, this time at Milan and Paris. Ah, don’t you just want to squeeze Magdalena, Natasha, or even Joan and Karlie and dance along? Maybe it’s just me and my lunacy.
I am going to differ from the majority here and say that I actually kind of like this editorial. Say what you want about this girl, but I love her clomp and dare I even say it’s fierce, all the way down to her cute, smug look. The photography here is weak and I first thought it was Terry Richardson shooting this, but putting that aside, I like Karlie grown up. I love her smoking, because you feel she’s too young and shouldn’t be doing so, but all the while, it’s slightly bad ass, eh?

Bow down to excellence. Kate is iconic in every sense of the word. She absolutely stole the show. In light of the clothes, I’m in love. Marc presented pencil skirt silhouettes, beautiful, voluminous furs, wellies with an added platform and heel, and added kink and fetish with materials and in the details, e.g. the adorable masks. Yet, all of this had a disciplined austerity about it all. Really magnificent.
Back to Kate, though. Such incredible presence. She looked wonderful and the cigarette smoking wonder was the most super of all of the supers that walked, including Naomi Campbell. It was really a superb casting.
Check it out.
In what world is it normal for a guy from Indiana to remember off the top of his head how to spell Vilkeviciute without any problems or hesitation? Random questions to the world and reflection of my interests, I suppose. Normally, I would have passed over a Vogue supplement, but this one came into a post not even related to it, so I’m glad that happened. Edita here is captured so lovely in one of my highly coveted Givenchy haute couture gowns, with the crystals encrusting the sheer fabric as a skeleton and the marabou feathers cascading to the bottom of the gown. The billowing YSL with the added element of smoke is brilliant. Mesmerizing.
