An old tired concept strikes oil. Majorly. The inclusion of Daria is a little odd and the placement of maybe Claudia or Cindy may have been a better choice, but these images are striking. None of them look a day older than their photoshopped age.
Open the magazine up and the images get better. I’m always for any ode to the ‘super’, so count me in for the Linda, Kate, Naomi, and the Christy covers. It isn’t nostalgic if they’re careers are still on fire.

It’s about to get hot in here. Rolling around tropical beaches of the Canary Islands in Cavalli and Emilio Pucci, Daria Werbowy is the perfect bronzed siren. Not the most creative shoots, as it reminds me of several she’s done and several of Kate Moss’s from last year, but her beauty is breathtaking nonetheless.
Following last season’s direction, the Balmain campaign follows the basic route but with Daria. If it isn’t Kate or Anja, it must be Daria. The three are the epitome. Kate wears Balmain flawlessly, and Anja and Daria are the living breath of what the Balmain girl is.
You know, forget that Decarnin’s designs are evolving at the rate of a snail, but I really love Balmain past its Pirate-chic. What I really love is that Balmain is the problem with the fashion industry. While the leather jackets and pants are constructed so precisely and exquisitely, the Paris house has the luxury of charging its customer $1500 and higher on cotton T-Shirts, albeit those with holes. The high-shouldered, gold and sequined gowns are also loaned out to so many magazine covers and editorials, it became a farce. You better believe sales are favorable, even if Pierre Balmain himself is rolling violently in his grave. It’s truly magnificent, but nothing new and enlightening to anyone. Put all of that aside and I really can’t wait to see what Christophe has in store for us in a month.

How fabulous are these girls? Remove Carmen and Edie with maybe Abbey, Anja or Natasha and we have a perfect list in this UK Vogue dedicated to stars. True supermodels Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer are joined with seasoned veteran Angela Lindvall and a list of my favorites. Golden and beautiful.
Industrie has taken the time to photograph Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone, well, in the buff. Sex is a huge part of fashion, but the great thing about these shots, none of them are particularly sexy, yet naturally beautiful and gives the viewer appreciation of the human body in its finest form.
While both of these models have thin bodies and have been photographed nude before, what the fashion industry may love or may even not love about Lara is her “curvy” body. What the fashion industry defines as curvy is a pair of breasts and maybe half a hip. You say tomato, I say tomäto. Either way, Lara is my gap-toothed beauty goddess, and I wouldn’t change a thing as I adore this striking woman. Oh yeah, I like you too Daria. Must I say that this shoot is obviously NSFW? After the cut, kittens…
Featuring Daria Werbowy, Erin Wasson, Julia Stegner, Sasha Pivovarova, Lara Stone, Anabela Belikova, Lauren Hutton, H&M shows their latest bikinis and summer wear. I never pictured Sasha P. modeling bikinis, but it just works. Sasha and Laura look absolutely chic and it’s wonderful. The use of Lauren Hutton is so random, but add her, the guys, and whatnot and they’re just like a big family. Ah, H&M and family values.
Just found the Times Online did a list of 25 movies that “shook the world of fashion,” blah blah blah. Yeah, not impressed. They left out Sex and the City, no big deal, but they had reasoning and I think they failed with that. They even said that while SJP is chic, they said the other three looked like drag queens and gave Pat Field a style crime. Girlfriend can’t dress herself, but the woman can dress others perfectly. She has built a vast list of fashionable characters, each with their own style with a little flair of Pat’s personality. The movie should be on the list topping a lot of these movies. The wedding gowns were fabulous.
Moving on. Avatar, really? I’d say that maybe even Vogue had an editorial with Daria Werbowy, the tribal-wear did not start with Avatar. They only pointed out the blue. Please. No fashion world I know was shaken from this movie. While I could go on and on in disagreeing, I’d like to question why Marie Antoinette was not on the list. The fashion made the movie. That may be a sad fact, but the gowns, panniers, wigs, the Manolo Blahnik mules, and the evolution of fashion during the young queen’s life. It was simply fabulous. Also, substituting Funny Face for Breakfast at Tiffany’s is laughable. Anyway, good for Bonnie and Clyde. Go ahead, check the list.
