Muse steps up their game with a trio of covers for the Winter 2010 edition of their magazine. Edita Vilkeviciute, Carolyn Murphy and Magdalena Frackowiak each hold their own quite strongly as being too cool, too tough, and too icy. Every cover and editorial brings something different and interesting to the table. I’d love to get my hands on Magda’s cover.
Gorgeous and sexy, Magda. We could all use a little Magdalena Frackowiak in our lives, especially in YSL and those deep, red lips. The photographer did a really perfect job to capture a polished, crisp finish to the photos. The veiled Magdalena is stunning.

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.

Christian Dior Fall 2010 Haute Couture really has me excited. Galliano took the idea of florals and laid them out quite literally. Almost every model that strutted down the runway represented a different flower. My favorite comparisons are from Fashionista.com where they put the dresses side-by-side to the flowers they look like. Every gown, every piece are absolutely stunning.
Models such as Karlie, Stam, and Magda donned plastic wrap headpieces and raffia-tied waists had an array of colors straight from the garden on stunning fabrics from mohair to organza in various tedious techniques. Such whimsy. These are the pieces I’m dying to see worn on a red carpet. It would be an amazing sight for all.
Lanvin’s campaign finally came out and I love the cast and the clothes, the makeup…a little too hard. The eyes in particular are a tad whorish, but the models are definitely working this campaign. We have Anja Rubik, Magdalena Frackowiak and Mariacarla Boscono posing up something fierce for Steven Meisel. Oh Alber, please tell me it is the last season for these tribal influenced pieces.
Karl Lagerfeld wrote and directed another Chanel short film, this time being shown Monday to guests to preview Chanel’s Cruise 2011 show today. Magdalena emulates Brigitte Bardot, which makes me feel that the part was originally supposed to be for Lara Stone. Abby Lee, looking adorable, channels Jane Birkin, while Freja emulates Mick Jagger. It focuses on the 70s-throwback party that I suppose the Cruise collection will reflect. I guess I’ll see as I review the line in just a moment. Also, is it me or do I find Baptiste a lot sexier on film than in photos. He still has that air about him that he knows he’s prettier than a unicorn, but maybe I’m just a cray-cray lunatic.
