What will we ever do with you, Wixson? Every time I see an image of you, I’m either terrified or intrigued. You have the lips of a blow-up doll that is more than ready to do her damage, teeth that give Georgia May and Bugs Bunny a run for their money, but you have such interestingly beautiful eyes and pretty hair. Let me call this confused. I’ll admit you have been looking less like a starving prostitute on recent runways, in fact, kind of good, but how is it you can look perfect in a minidress by Miu Miu or Balmain? There are many mysteries: Does life exist on another galaxy? Why doesn’t Britney get a proper weave? Now, I think your purpose has been added to that great, obviously important list, my dear.

She takes two steps forward and three steps back. It’s just hit-or-miss with Miranda. Tom Munro photographs Miranda for Vogue España and all I see here is a mediocre cover for Elle. Let’s get something straight, she’s an absolutely beautiful and striking girl, but something about her personality is so saccharine and that it’s hard to overlook how adorable and vivacious her personality seems. I’ve been supporting Miranda ever since she’s been dipping into high fashion editorials and campaigns and believe she deserves every major gig she receives, but I need to see more than just an arched hip or back mixed with awkward poses. The black-and-whites are stunning and she seems quite lovely in the editorial favorite Miu Miu, but more vibrant photos reminisce a Victoria’s Secret catalog or GQ for that matter. Step up your game, girl.
Mischa, Mischa, what is your life? With that look on your face, you don’t have to say it, girl. We got you. That Miu Miu dress is inherently ugly, yet cute in a quirky way, but on you, it is coming off as a bit nuts-o. While Swashbuckler McGee or perhaps Bret Michaels behind you isn’t helping anyone’s case, you my dear, look like an absolute loon.
Do yourself a favor, fix those stank-ass extensions, possibly take it a bit lighter on the makeup or maybe heavier, but when you’ve reached whore or Christina Aguilera’s mask, you’ve gone too far. Also, save the Miu Miu for an event that doesn’t include leaving a pub (What are you doing at a pub anyway? Aren’t you suppose to be sober? Oh, I get it. You have will power. A Wonder Woman of our generation.). Trust me, do yourself some favors and maybe your legacy won’t be Marissa Cooper. Marinade on that.
Dare I even mention it? CoughMiuMiuCoughPradaCough. There isn’t an editorial that doesn’t get better from it, is all I’m saying. Maybe one day I won’t have to mention the products of Miuccia when she finally sends me a collar with nude ladies. One can dream, right? I mean, Ke$ha has hit songs, like, songs people listen to on the radio. Taylor Swift still sings about magical boys or something. When is it my turn, Ke$#@*!a? When is it my turn to basque in that glittery sun?!
I need to cool down and focus. I should be grateful I’m not just a performing dumpster, so lets focus on what’s in front of us. Add the likes of Givenchy mixed with beautiful leathers and finely tailored clothes on Magdalena, you have this perfectly style editorial. Magda is pulling distressed beauty all too perfectly.

Chanel Iman is such a pretty girl. Here in The Block shot by Doug English, she is such a butterfly in this retro-chic editorial. I want to say her cover gown and the big purple one is Viktor & Rolf S/S 2010 with that insane lavender, ruffled tulle. Once again those beloved Miu Miu collars with the nude ladies appear and are once again quite the gems. They are photographed stunningly on Chanel in contrast of the fuchsia flowers. Marvelous.
Normally I wouldn’t really care about Eva Mendes. She’s really a beauty, but besides that she doesn’t really have an impressive acting career. My reasoning was that she is wearing Miu Miu in the next edition of W and I’m glad it’s already getting recognized in editorials and gives me a reminder to subscribe after I really see what Stefano Tonchi really can do. I love Miu Miu and that’s no secret. The provocative humor about the whole line is fabulous and so smart, thanks to the iconic Miuccia Prada herself. There’s so much to adore about that dress: the flowers, the over-sized bow, the low-cut bodice. Really other than that, check out the sexy Eva strut her stuff across this editorial.
Sex and the City 2 is getting scathing reviews and who thought it wouldn’t otherwise? Will that stop moviegoers from not flocking to the theaters? No. Will I still be attending with my sister? Probably. From what I read, things that have been said include: “insipid,” “condescending,” and “blatantly anti-Muslim.” Roger Ebert even suggested that he does possess taste and that he can see that the clothes are awful. Now, I do love Roger Ebert, I read his opinions, I laugh at his wit and sarcastic humor, but I won’t be taking his opinion on the clothes, but then maybe he’s right. I trust Pat Field in all of her craz-tastic glory. Besides, I saw the last movie and if the previews do justice, there’s so much glamor to go around.
Anyway, that’s what we’re really here for in this post. The movie could be whatever it is for the moment, let’s discuss the premiere. All of the girls look absolutely stunning. I really hate when people harp on SJP; I feel she’s absolutely gorgeous. Her gown! I can recognize that Valentino Haute Couture from a mile away. She could have added a little something else, but it is absolutely a fun color that she pulled off perfectly. All of the other girls hit it on key, I mean Kristin in pink, she’s ravishing. What I really about how Pat styled them and there character personalities, they all really do basically dress like who they play. Glamorous. Also, Candace Bushnell showed up wearing that Miu Miu collar with the nude ladies. I’d KILL for that STILL to this day.
Along with the fabulous attendees to the premiere the other night, there were some fabulous trainwrecks along the way. Okay, we get it, you’re Liza with a “z,” you’re a gay icon, you’re mother dreamt of what’s over the rainbow, blah blah blah. You’re fabulous Liza, but something is just so amazingly a hot mess right here, there’s really no other words that can describe you draped in this silvery, shear fabric. Not to mention, are those chicken cutlets? My eyes are stabbing themselves with knifes at this craziness. Oh dear, dear Liza. Life is a cabaret, I do understand that old chum, but put on something a little less wackadoo.
Whitney Port and Jessica Szohr take note: NO.
Damn you, Tavi! Every time I see this eccentric little girl’s blog I fall in love with her designer duds. The latest obsession of mine are those Miu Miu collars. Miuccia Prada is genius, and even I want to be a Miu Miu lolita terribly so. I love the collars, especially the ones Natasha Poly and Lindsey Wixson sported on the Spring 2010 runways back in the fall. I love the nude ladies, the sparrows, and even the cats. Yes, some of you may think they’re silly, but if you just appreciate them for what they are, you too could fall deeply in love with these gems.
Miuccia Prada is a fashion lover’s dream. I encourage you all to look through the photos of all of her creations from this line and from those of the past and you will be highly pleased in what you find. She is at the top of trend-setting and inovation with Miu Miu and Prada.
Miu Miu brings the sexy and sweet sixties into full swing. The sixties are all over the runways and I couldn’t be happier. The eighties and nineties are overdone and worked that it’s time for something new to reminisce about and bring better innovation to the table. I love the short dresses, the deep U-fronts, the wavy hems, and the perfect color palette. Miuccia, can we be friends, please?
From the naked women on the shirts from last season to the dead-on fashions from the sixties fashion revolution, Miu Miu always has its humorous and provocative quirks that I adore.
There’s something about this fabric that is very interesting and yet so perfect about its choice and use. Very well done, Miuccia.
The shoes are so detailed they’re and so on point. They have a square to and have floral embellishments along with ties that match the silly over-sized ones her models wear as well. I also appreciate the make-up that matches these color schemes. Très bien.
