With Alexander McQueen's suicide we have lost one of fashion's most creative young intellectuals. He will be missed.

Oh, and the earrings look pretty dope too.
I am completely taken by the way Jean-Honoré Fragonard captures fabric textures in his painting The Stolen Kiss (1787-89, Oil on canvas, 45 x 55 cm, The Hermitage, St. Petersburg.)
I find it funny that there always seems to be something a bit fuzzy about the faces in paintings of this period, but when it comes to the fabric you feel you can just reach out and touch it.

It's a kind digital, pixelated camouflage that makes me think Colonel Quaritch might also have a soft spot for this Matthew Williamson number:
I don't know if the digital floral-print idea was ever taken up by mid-market labels but it definitely should have been. Beautiful and innovative. Like Avatar. See Avatar!

Upon seeing Stella McCartney's new ad campaign my first thought was that Stella had chowed down one too many tofu burgers and lost the plot a little. But the clothes are impeccable and Natalia Vodianova (whatdoyaknow-va!) is super sexy as always.
The backdrop is a photo of Stella's childhood pet, Lucky, and was taken by Linda McCartney.
The concept is weird and surprising on first glance but the more I study the images, the more I see something touching and intimate about the series.
I mean, I don't know how much of this is gonna be on TV or anything...
but, it's-- it's-- it's so new…
I mean, it's, uh, it's so old.
I mean, it's, uh-- I mean, she shows it like it really is.
It's, uh, it's so old, it's true.
It's so true, it's new.
It's the oldest new look. It's the newest old look.
Simone Lo has created a-- a new, new look...
for every man, woman and child.
And they can all afford it.
Like check this CC Skye necklace:Stunning. And I'm not ashamed to admit that it was Rachel Zoe that made me appreciate the pretty stone:
Such a good one!
You know what I want to see? An Australian fashion label running a campaign like this.
Just get the guy to button up (what I think is) his flippin' V-neck t-shirt. I hate those things.
Update: My mum likes the photo too.
