Love this Glam Cuddle shoot featuring the luminous Guinevere Van Seenus. She’s a pale, bosom’y pastel vision!
I was just talking to a friend yesterday, debating whether or not Nicole still has Star Power. I am arguably a blind follower of NikkiK. Moulin Rouge and The Hours are two of my favourite movies. I saw Bewitched and Stepford Wives in the theatre. I can guess a past event she’s attended based on her outfit. I can quote her Oscar acceptance speech. I’ve memorized most of her editorials and can identify the publication and photographer just from the image. I love her as a redhead AND a blonde. I think she’s brave and wonderful. I defend her plastic surgery choices because it’s HER GODDAMNED FACE. But, if I remove my heart from the argument, yes, I can see why some people might doubt Nicole’s staying-power in film. Because, you know, Bewitched and Stepford Wives and plastic surgery isn’t a great choice for a dramatic actress since they need their face to move and express emotion.
But then, like magick, this shoot for the October issue of Interview Magazine arrived this morning to remind me that my heart is right, and Nicole is a force. Nicole tells a story in every editorial, and this one is a sultry, mischievous bit of wonder. Also! Those legs! I think they’re so beautiful we’re gonna have to call them gams. Those gams! They don’t stop!
After appearing as a goddess in a Kanye West show on September 25th, Zoe Kravitz kept on her gold leaf makeup and mixed it with a mesh shirt and leather mini for an afterparty at the Chateau Marmont.
At last, it’s time for the bold originality from two brands that never disappoint. Comme’s designer Rei Kawakubo is the definition of original. She takes ever convention about fashion, every cliche, every expectation and obliterates it. Completely dismissing things like references or influences or call back, she creates structural pieces of wearable art that are gorgeous in their inscrutability. This collection is a tight sixteen looks, that defy definition. Yohji Yamamoto is much the same. These Victorian goth punk looks, complete with over sized black parasols, hoop skirts, loose bustiers and petticoats, ending with a Winona Ryder in Beetlejuice red wedding dress.

I started doing a 365 Photo Project on Flickr and Instagram and Tumblr. Every day for one year, I’ll be taking a self portrait. I share an image each day on Flickr, as well as Outtakes on days where the shoot goes well. I also share the image (sometimes an outtake if the original image is too naked) on Instagram and every image on Tumblr. Message/add me if you’d like to follow my progress, or if you’re also doing the project, or feel inspired to start one yourself.
