I have kept this photo on my desktop for a while now, waiting until I had something clever to say about it…but really it just makes me chuckle. I wish desperately that it was a still from a movie…possibly this would be the very tense scene in which a group of Italian brothers were forced to run from the mob and found shelter in a sunny country house where they were fed pasta and um, oysters, for breakfast, and this is the moment where they all glare at the fifth brother (who got them all into this mess) as he walks through the door.
The film would of course be sponsored by Dolce & Gabbana and the contract would state that all the actors would be male models and that they’d be required to bare D&G underwear and/or sweat for at least 80% of their screen time.
Wouldn’t you go see that movie?

I know I’ve already posted from this spread but I love it so too bad. Ali Stephens and Batman for French Revue de Modes.
I would have to say Dazed & Confused is my favorite fashion magazine because they do some really incredible interviews with filmmakers as well as figures in fashion, and they always deliver with the fashion editorials. Also, they aren’t afraid of writing intelligently; a lot of glossies seem to think that its readers are allergic to words and just want to see pretty pictures of expensive clothes.
I just bought the february issue and I love that they featured the crazy Viktor & Rolf mesh creations, (I’d been dying to get a better look at the red gown with the cut out holes) as well as a piece about “emporer of anime” Hayao Miyazaki, who I love.
It also came with a free BE STUPID shirt from the new Diesel campaign…I can’t say I’m a huge fan of Diesel or their marketing technique of having people strive to “Be stupid: Smart may have the brains, but stupid has the balls”. I guess its – er -selling a lifestyle?

A most fashionable soda and staple of the American diet…though I have to say I prefer Coke Zero :P
Another fashion film for the road…“Ghost” by director Marco Brambilla for MUSE magazine. The model is the brilliant Natasha Poly, who is intensely fabulous in this haunting video, even when stripped bear of expensive clothes and makeup.
