okay, audra, becoolbecoolbecool…
you guys ready to lose your shit?! never mind the crappy perez hilton-esque art i’ve created, but alex was just screaming for a heart to be drawn around him! i just saw the new alexander mcqueen fall 2009 runway collection… & there just are no words to describe how amazing this stuff is. okay, maybe a few. houndstooth. houndstooth!! and lots of it! blacks! reds! big hats! gothic! big, fat, wax-like lips! birds! feathers! flocking together! ridiculous hats! models without eyebrows!
…and i can’t help but think that the hats he designed are a sweet little nod to my idol, isabella blow. she discovered alex, you know!
ready, kids?! brace yourselves…you may need to run & grab a towel right quick…your knickers will experience dampness…in fact, you might just come in your panties:
while you’re all in a fashion-tizzy, get your lube ready & watch this. it’s like fashion porn! awesome! and there’s even mention of edie beale. shit, i think my head may explode. isn’t this stuff just so fucking rad you can barely stand it?! oh…it makes my chest feel like hot cherry pie…& then i think of the smell of brand new plastic beach balls & realize that not every single person on earth is a complete moron. thank you, alex! i heart you real hard.

i was just milling around the other day, looking at various older couture collections, & settled in on zac posen. i’ve adored zac from the very beginning…even though we’re exactly the same age & he makes me feel like a gigantic underachiever…but i fell in love with his fall 2008 rtw collection, & i’m pretty sure he had me in mind when he designed it; it’s quite delicious, as well as the models he chose…karen elson, jessica stam, coco rocha & agyness deyn!? all at once? sigh…
you can view the collection in its entirety here.

i realize everyone’s probably getting sick of fashion posts…even i am just a little bit…but sometimes it’s just too good to pass up, right? anyway, i haven’t even been at home on the weekends long enough to turn on the oven. what’s a girl to do? i’m pulling a warhol: it’s easy. fashiony things are easy. something food related next week. i promise. in the meantime…
christian dior spring 2009 couture collection. so gorge. bless john galliano! he’s been the grands couturier for dior since 1996. i love dior, & i’ve been obsessed with john galliano since i was about 12 after watching him on fashion televison. my mom gave me an exquisite[ly big] book on christian dior’s early work for christmas, & this stuff galliano designed looks a lot like the young material dior was churning out in the late 1940s. i love them. so glamorous, regal…and prommy — in a good way. there are belts cinched in at the (real) waist; i live for these. there are yards & yards of silky, delicious fabrics. and there are hats. big, gaudy, glamorous hats…with crimped hair! a-fucking-men. i’m heating up my crimper right this very second…
i love this one; very modern technicolor eye with the crimped hair, but sort of 1800’s victorian inspired gown. so pretty:
if i had to get married over again & had an extra hundred grand or so lying about, dying to be spent, this is what i would wear:
loves this. i wanna wear it to the orangette book signing:
i just love the color of this, even if the shape wasn’t as amazing at it is…someday i will have walls this color:
i’m not even that wild about blue, especially a blue this shade, but i think this is so lovely:
i want this; i’d totally wear it to work:
there. i think i’m runway’d out for now(!). food. next week. i promise.
