SPREAD YOUR WINGS & PREPARE TO FLY WITH THESE NEW T-SHIRTS FROM MR PORTER

Don’t worry…God hasn’t issued the go-ahead for the Rapture and left a plague of insects and birds in it’s wake, I just made what I could in the time I had available!

Recently I’ve noticed plenty of designers housing a selection of avian inspired prints, so while casually browsing through the Mr Porter website, (as I tend to do daily now), I found three such T-Shirts that are easy to style, relaxed and all share a similar theme – Flight!

MY 2013 OSCARS BEST DRESSED LIST

Hollywood’s finest were out in full force last night for the 85th annual Academy awards – aka the Oscars. Unfortunately as with the BAFTA Awards, a few weeks back, the picking for best dressed were slim. In fact I wasn’t really floored by anyone this year.

Still, It gave me another excuse to play around on Adobe Illustrator and judge those who are hotter, richer and luckier than me.

Without further ado, here are is my 2013 Oscars best dressed list!

COVER: NAOMI CAMPBELL BY THOMAS WHITESIDE, ELLE SERBIA, MARCH 2013

It may be a reprint from January, but the image of Naomi Campbell in Alexander McQueen hasn’t lost any of its allure, as the Thomas Whiteside lensed image has been use for the March 2013 cover of Elle Serbia.

I’m all for black and white images for spring covers, especially if they look as commanding and refined as this. The Queen in “McQueen” is truly a force to be reckoned with!

PHOTOGRAPHY: LUCHO & JULIET BY TOM FORD

Carrying on from yesterday’s comic book styled fashion story find, here’s another brilliantly executed caption led editorial courtesy of Tom Ford.

Lucho & Juliet, taken from CR Fashion Book #1, wonderfully combines the Snow White fairy tale with the Romeo & Juliet play, in a heavily romantic and excessive, couture led story. The “Park Avenue Princess”, having been blinded by her lust for Dior, takes a bite from a poison apple from fashion house themselves and falls into such a deep sleep, that not even a kiss from the dashing Prince Lucho can wake her.

Check it out.

PHOTOGRAPHY: THE CHARMED LIFE OF ELIZABETH OLSEN BY JEFF BARK

Despite being so sweet you would be at risk of contracting diabetes just by looking at the above image, it’s really nice to see Elizabeth Olsen in the spotlight for once.

This sugary sweet editorial featured in Bullett Magazine’s Fall 2012 issue, sees the actress and younger sister to the Olsen Twins, hide her blonde tresses under a candy floss coloured wig while donning a variety of feminine gowns and beaded dresses from the likes of Balmain, Marchesa, Chanel, Dior and Alexander McQueen, in a fairy tale setting that could only be described as Barbie’s interpretation of Narnia. Thankfully, Elizabeth’s composure and expression coupled with the severity of her bob add a nice savoury note to the overwhelming femininity.

Check out the rest of the Jeff Bark lensed editorial here.
