Okay, okay, that’s it. I am officially on the Daphne train, ready to take off and chug along into “super” status. I get her and I cherish her. She is a stunning creature and I support her. Basically, Daphne, I salute you.

Tears for Fall and some stunning models and young actresses are shown on the numerous covers of the latest edition of Katie Grand’s LOVE. How stunning is the darkness and emotion that Mariacarla is displaying? How about Lara’s vulnerability? Daphne and Kristen absolutely work it on their covers as well. Speaking of Kristen, I kid you not, I read a comparison of her hair as “iron curtains.” She will now be known as Kristen “Iron Curtains” McMenamy. Deal with it.

The cover is so promising, but I’ll spare you the editorial. To sum it up: over-styled, a stolen wig from 80’s pop star cartoon, Jem, and the same facial expression that I just want to smack to make her close her mouth. Picture painted.
French fetishist and purely vintage. Gone is the 70s trend and here are the first images from the new Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 ad campaign. The set is missing two models, one of them being the fabulous Fei Fei Sun, but the rest will come out in time. I think this campaign would have been better with all of these models behind Kate and Jessica. Yes?

Look what we came across. So the girl gets her cover after all with Tom Ford at that. I’m not sure how I feel about this 15-year-old girl yet. She certainly has risen quite quickly being casted in Givenchy Haute Couture and not to mention the Miu Miu campaign and endless runways for Spring, yet I still can’t help but feel she’s slightly undeveloped, like she needs to be put back in her mother’s uterus. I don’t know. I’ll leave feedback once the HQ cover has leaked or released, not to mention what editorial Vogue Paris has in store for us. I’m still not fully warmed up to Wixson, so this creature may take awhile.
The casting is honestly perfect for Miu Miu’s latest campaign with Siri Tollerød, Ginta Lapina, Daphne Groeneveld and Lindsey Wixson, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. That purple dress with the flowers and the over-sized lace is wonderful, and I still cherish the time when Carey Mulligan pulled it off, yet no one appreciated it because of it being the wrong event. Also, why am I getting vibes of Wixson just being some cherub face placed on an adult body? Or what I’ve read, a fetus trying to sell clothes. Whatever, perfect for Miu Miu’s provocative, sexy, and smart aesthetics.
I really love that this is an essential throwback and re-thinking to the 60s that focuses on the quirky and fun and the point where fashion as a whole began to shift, whether that is what Miuccia was aiming for or not, it is how I interpret her genius. I imagine this whole line on the likes of Twiggy to Audrey Hepburn’s wardrobe in 1966’s How to Steal a Million, similar to her Givenchy wardrobe. I love it through and through.
