In an attempt to get my *whispers* SHIT together, over the next few weeks I’ll be peppering in, alongside new and exciting photos, lovely posts that I put together, but didn’t actually share, because I’m a disaster. I have so many better examples of what exactly makes me a disaster, but this one is good enough. So here everyone! Look at these lush photos of Karmen Pedaru by Lush Master Horst Diekgerdes for the Spring issue of Muse. If you’re not too busy, why not spend some time with THIS, one of my favourite editorials of all time, featuring Karmen along with Mariacarla Boscono (more on her later as I end 2015 with a BANG) and Candice Huffine, who is actual perfection. Sometimes when I want my crops to be plentiful, I pray to her thighs, and BOOM! The pantry is full of ears of corn and bushels of apples.
The November issue of Numéro is a celebration of diverse photography styles, featuring some of the most talented models working today. Let’s break it down! Impossible limbstress Anna Cleveland contorts for Greg Kadel in a shoot that’s a romantic mix of stark black and white images with autumn grazing-in-the-grass photos; Alisa Ahmann stars in a perfectly saturated 60s retro series for Laurie Bartley; Soo Joo Park & Giedre Kiaulenaite are featured in a Hong Janghyun editorial that’s so gritty and gorgeous that I want to memorize every detail; and the positively enchanting Hana Jirickova is shot by Hans Feurer in a shoot that, when I saw a thumbnail of one of the images, I thought was a retro image of Kate Moss. Delicious fashion treats! Grab a copy of this! There’s too much goodness to not own!

I checked to see if Diane Kruger has anything coming out and maybe that’s why she’s gracing us with her presence, but I don’t think she is, I think she’s just fierce and fabulous and sometimes life works in our favour. I will take this moment to promote Mr Diane Kruger – Joshua Jackson is one of the magnificent stars of the heartbreaking The Affair. You should watch it! Joshua plays a man who can really fill out a snap-front top and pair of jeans, like I imagine all men could do in the 70s. The second season is airing now. I haven’t started watching it yet, but the first season, told by Dominic West and Ruth Wilson’s point-of-view, was an intriguing delight. This season is told from the spouses’ point-of-view so it’s time to watch Pacey shine! Maura Tierney also stars. So put The Affair on your must-watch list, and then marvel at these gorgeous images of Diane Kruger. It seems like the fashion magazines and myself can’t get enough of David Bellemere, and this shoot of Diane for Violet Grey is a unique blend of Bellemere & Kruger’s style. So glam! I love it! Sean & Seng photographed Kruger for the November issue of Vanity Fair France and it’s an autumnal treat!

Marion Cotillard is a vision. She resonates such vulnerability and depth in every role. Ooh, except in The Dark Knight Rises. What even was that performance? She’s such a subtle, nuanced actress, but in The Dark Knight Rises, she was terrible, just awful. Her death (2012 SPOILER ALERT) made me laugh. I love a good lol-WHAT? laugh, but not in a movie I’m emotionally invested in! Not in a movie starring Tom Hardy’s voice/biceps! No! Ooh! But that scene where she’s lovingly tending to Bane & fixing his breathe-right-strip & he has tears welling up in his eyes. GORGEOUS! Ok! I forgive you Marion! This Holiday Award Season, Cotillard stars alongside Michael Fassbender in Macbeth and it’s going to be beautiful brunette Shakespearean porn! This editorial, shot by Ryan McGinley for Porter is such a whimsey wonderland, featuring Marion spinning in fringe and frolicking in lavender! All I’ve ever wanted to do is frolic in lavender with Marion Cotillard!
Let’s gently ease into today with these three stunning shoots of Lindsey Wixson. Lindsey first captured my heart about 5 years ago in an Alasdair McLellan shoot alongside Barbara Palvin and Ashley Smith. Each girl had something special about them, and I knew they would all go on to make magick. And they have! Lindsey has become the most recognizable of the three, and her evolution has been a delight to behold. She’s matured from an impish girl creature to a vixenish lady creature. Because she’s always been a magnificent model I’ve always trusted her shoots, but these three really display well how talented she truly is: a muted dreamy shoot by Janneke Van Der Hagen for CR Fashion Book; a frisky couture shoot for the Fall issue of V Magazine by Anthony Maule; and an absolutely perfect blend of black and white and colour studio shots by Nico for Madame Figaro.
