P.S. I’m currently blogging on the Greyhound bus in Canada, on my way back to Boston. Oooh technology.
I’m flying to Boston to see my sister in a few hours. Just wanted to wish you all happy holidays and safe travels :) Things will be slow on the blog for a bit while I’m in the States, but I will leave you with this epic spread from Dazed & Confused.

Possibly the most anticipated show of Spring 2011 Paris Fashion Week was Alexander McQueen, as it was their first womenswear show designed in the late Lee McQueen’s absence. It was all eyes on Sarah Burton, the new head designer, yet she somehow managed to deliver under the pressure. It couldn’t have been an easy to job to stick to the house trademarks of meticulous tailoring, dark influences and edgy, otherworldly designs, without simply regurgitating Lee Alexander’s previous designs…but the critics have weighed in and it looks like she pulled it off, all while adding her own flair.
“In an extraordinarily beautiful show, Burton succeeded in both being faithful to the late designer’s distinctive design ethos while taking the label into a new era.” -The Guardian “A tour-de-force that channeled McQueen’s darkly surreal style, remodeling his signature elements into strange and beautiful confections that managed to be at the same time new and reassuringly familiar.” -Associated Press
“A show laden with emotion that was made even more remarkable because of how right she got it.” – Vogue.com UK
“Inspired, this time, by the anatomy of the woman who chooses to wear it and by the flora and fauna of the natural world, it was both technically and artistically perfect.” -The Independent
“Sarah Burton … revived the late designer’s challenging legacy with a brilliant first collection imbued with a pagan, bohemian spirit and featuring spectacular hand-crafted detail.” -The Daily Telegraph

This adorable Wildfox model is as cute as a button…and looks like she would be fun to hang out with, too. Its rare to see an editorial and go “Gee, that chick looks like she’d be fun to be around. And where can I find me some hair bleach right about now?”. Usually I think more along the lines of “Eff you and your impossibly long legs and perfect tan”. Now, about that hair bleach…
How do you guys feel about the controversial “Water & Oil” Vogue Italia editorial inspired by the oil spill? Personally I think its stunning, but I understand how it could be seen as an offensive glamourisation of a serious issue…thoughts?

I know everyone is obsessing over the Givenchy haute couture that showed recently but I just HAD to post the lace skeleton dress. I just love that such a white, lacey, intricate, luxurious collection can have such dark undertones…
