MAGAZINE REVIEW: Vogue Russia December 2012

To wrap up yet another year-that-went-by-too-fast, Vogue Russia gives an old school supermodel, one of the original trinity on their cover, Linda Evangelista. You know, the model who famously said she "don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day." Well regardless of how much she earned for this, the cover was shot by none other than Karl Lagerfeld and features one of his fur designs for his Fall/Winter 2012 collection for Fendi. 
P: Karl Lagerfeld M: Linda Evangelista 

I've never been too big of a fan for Karl Lagerfeld when it comes to photography (or his designs at that), but I find this cover to be quite festive and appropriate for a finale. I've noticed Russian Vogue's been pretty stagnant when it comes to churning out stellar covers this year, so at least they were able to end it with at a high note. See the details and the accompany (and more stunning) supplement cover after le jump!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY: and then I decided I was a lemon for a couple of weeks.

Lookie here, a second consistent blogpost from yours truly. Much like the previous on, this is going to be an outfit detail post, being the vain-pot that I am. As usually, I went with a very 'boyish' attitude for my appearance around Orchard Road, but decided to mix in a bit of color blocking into my regular look. 

Basically if you guys were to raid my wardrobe, the obvious color you'd find is black and dark shades of blue and grey with white mixed in. The only obviously pop-out articles of clothing you're able to dig out are two things; a pair of bright turquoise Topman skinnies and this yellow sweater by Kris Van Assche (the former having only been worn once with much embarrassment and regret.) Check out details after le jump!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY: I had chosen the path of the black sheep rather than that of the unicorns and puppies.

Well, here I am once again; in front of an empty post on my former blogspot which was initially only created for a school project. Having a lot of free time at the moment, and after much thought and deliberation, I've decided to give this whole 'blogging' thing another try. As to what kind of blogger I'm going to mold myself into? It's much too early to tell but I have a somewhat vague idea of the types of things I'm going to post here. 

So basically today I went down to Orchard Road already planning on basing my first post on today's outfit. How would I describe my personal style? I would honestly have to say my style really changes depending on my mood, but whichever 'mode' I place myself into, I always try to stay in a more 'boyish' character; trust me, I love to dress fabulous and dramatic like the next cross-dresser at Play, but I'd like to keep myself in a more subtle, yet outstanding place. Hit le jump for more details!

So I've decided I'm going re-vamp my blog since I feel like I have all this energy but with no place to express myself. So finger's cross hope I go through with it : )

fashion collection: Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2008

So without much things to review on recently, I've decided to make a post on my ALL-TIME-FAVORITE FASHION COLLECTION. Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2008 is by far, the most exciting fashion collection I've laid my eyes on. When I first started off investigating on fashion when I was younger, I found this specific collection on and thought it was very weird why such a prestige and classic brand would do a collection that is so jumbled and crazy. But that's the beauty of Marc Jacobs designs. As ya'll should know (if you don't, shame!) this collection was a collaboration between Mr. Jacobs and artist Richard Prince. You guys may have seen Richard Prince's series on nurses as well as his "After Dark" series. Well, those components became the main inspiration for the overall collection, as well as taking the color scheme from Spongebob Squarepants. How random is that right? So random that I love it. Well, everything, from coats, dresses, suits and bags, nothing was kept to the ordinary. Jackets were completely exposed in the back, bags are done in a spectrum of acid colors, suits were done in varying fabric choices, overall creating a very muddled collection, that worked. An organized chaos. 
The opening of the show featured 12 leading old-school supermodels, all dressed up as Richard Prince's nurses, complete with Louis Vuitton lace mask and nurse caps. From left: Stephanie Seymour, Eva Herzigova, Rianne Ten Haken, Anne Vyalitsyna, Carmen Kass, Natalia Vodianova, Angela Lindvall, Isabeli Fontana, Karolina Kurkova, Lara Stone, Nadja Auermann and Naomi Campbell.

magazine haul: November 6, 2010

Hey guys, this is going to be a short post about my haul from today. Firstly, happy Diwali! Since today was a holiday, I decided to go hang out at Orchard since I haven't gone there in the longest time, plus i needed to go to Kinokuniya for my magazines. Let me tell you, Orchard today was very packed with tourists and locals alike. The Kinokuniya wasn't any different, but alas, I had to persevere forward and got the magazines I needed. 
Overhead shot of my purchases, with Natasha Poly's French Vogue cover on top. Bought mostly december issues of the magazines, bringing in a close to a year's worth of collection. Though I'm not really feeling the cover, I'm quite disappointed that Natasha didn't get an accompanying editorial in this issue. But whatever..... SEE MY WHOLE PURCHASES AFTER LE JUMP.

magazine collection: V Magazine & VMAN

V Magazine, launched in 1999 features a mix of fashion, art, film and music. Published 6 times yearly, it's become one of my must-buy magazine besides Vogue. Primarily what I love and think stands out about V Magazine are their editorials and their fresh unique and risque photo spreads. Their covers are also something to marvel at; featuring prominent supermodels and relevant celebrities.
However, frankly speaking, I can't say the same about VMAN. Though I do purchase every issue that comes out, I solemnly do it for the eye candy that's ever so present in the pages. I find their photoshoots repetitive, un-inspiring, but hot. Give me any publication with half-naked guys and I'll buy it in a heartbeat. 
My favorite V magazines.
V58 Spring 2009 with Natalia Vodianova and an actor (it's their glow-in-the-dark cover)
V59 Summer 2009 with Naomi Campbell
V66 Fall Preview 2010 with Natasha Poly

Also something to note about V Magazine, much like other publications on the edgier side of styling, they feature recognizable designer clothes but style them in the most unique ways. Whether they're placed inside-out, stretched or shrined, all just truly inspiring stuff. Well, see LE JUMP to see my whole collection!
