Marchesa Fall 2008 Collection and Its Architectural Inspirations

Marchesa's Fall 2008 Collection paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth 1. It is mainly composed of evening gowns and cocktail dresses. The colour palette was mostly black, purple, red and ivory, with the one pale blue one-shouldered gown. Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig used ruffles, rosettes and lace.

The gowns were gorgeous, aren't they? But I'm sure you'll love them more after visiting Trendinista blog. Jill Sherman, author of the blog, studied the designs of Machesa's gowns and she was able to compile photos of the gowns with spires and pagodas that somehow looked like them. You'll never believe this, at first glance you'd probably think that the gowns were inspired by these architectural designs.

Flair Magazine April 2008: Hollywood Dreams with Flavia Oliveir

Have you seen the April issue of Flair magazine? Well, it has a spread featuring model Flavia Oliveira with an editorial title "Hollywood Dreams". Flavia portrayed an image of an aspiring model who seeks stardom, finds rejection, romance, publicity, boredom and personal epiphanies along the way.

In these photos, you will see Flavia smoking Nat Sherman Fantasia cigarettes in bright, spring-colored hues and holding a bottle of whisky. Do you consider cigarette and whisky as glamorous and fashionable accessories to an outfit or they're just self-destructive ?

Miley Cyrus' Photo Shoot and Interview For Vanity Fair

After receiving some violent reactions, Vanity Fair officially released Miley Cyrus photos and interview for the upcoming issue of the magazine.

In the said issue, Miley was photographed with a blanket for a semi-naked effect. She also had a photo shoot with her father, Billy Ray Cyrus done by Annie Leivobitz in Calabasas, California.

Entitled as "Miley Knows Best", Vanity Fair aimed to know how she manage to be relatively normal between sold-out concerts, multi-platinum records, and a hit TV series, Hannah Montana; not to mention paparazzi on her tail and tabloid editors praying for her to pull a Britney.

Here's a glimpse of Miley's answers during the Vanity Fair Interview:

On Sex and the City: “It’s my favorite show! I love it! Obviously not the scenarios. But if you watch Sex and the City, like the way the friends are, the way that it’s dry and they all have distinct characters—that’s a thing we try to do on our show."

On the semi – topless photo shoot: “No, I mean I had a big blanket on. And I thought, This looks pretty, and really natural. I think it’s really artsy. [And] it wasn’t in a skanky way.… And you can’t say no to [photographer Annie Leibovitz]. She’s so cute. She gets this puppy-dog look and you’re like, O.K."

On whose career she’d like to follow: “Before, I’d say like Hilary Duff. But there can’t be a thousand Hilary Duffs. Then that doesn’t make Hilary special. And there can’t be a thousand Miley Cyruses, or that doesn’t make me special. That’s what a star is: they’re different. A celebrity is different. So, no, mostly I want to make my own path.

On being well-adjusted to the fame and public attention: “That’s just my personality. I don’t get shaken or stirred up over anything. Which can be a problem sometimes. I’m just, like, so no emotions. I just don’t let things faze me. I’m very much like my dad. My dad’s like this.”
