Italian Vouge, August 2010 – Steven Meisel
Only Steven Meisel knows how to do a photo shoot as well as this. It was published at the same time as the oil spill disaster in the Golf of Mexico, which really made people talk. I think it is amazing that a photographer dares to start discussions and ask questions, which really was done here in a beautiful and powerful visual way.
I just met my new BFF, who will be following me everywhere in the future! I’ve been using me Marc by Marc Jacobs almost everyday for about two years now, so thought it was time for a little change!
Bought it in Bestseller for 700 DKK – a bit expensive considered it is Bestseller, but I couldn’t leave it there hanging by itself! I’m sure it is an investment! – Like all the other stuff I bought this summer!
Every year the very respected CPH Vision manage to attract national and international buyers, trendsetters and press-people to attend at their press show, which contains big designers and rising stars. And this year was no exception!
Some of the big a/w10 trends are the very ‘womanish’ look with boobs and butt, but also the very clean look with straight lines. Obviously CPH Vision believes that these are trends that are here to stay, and showed off a bit of both at their Press Show 2011, which was held wednesday.
Personally I preferrer the looks above, actually I love them! – They are very simple, clean and strong, and still manage to bring something ‘soft’ to the look with the loose shirts and dresses, combined with the soft colors – a strong contrast to the black/white. All together a perfect s/s look, even though it isn’t full off conspicuous colors!

CFW took off yesterday, and several designers have already shown their suggestions for S/S 2011. A few of us talked about going over their to attend at some of the events and the shows that are open for everyone. The fashion week is also called Copenhagen Fashion Festival, because of the fact that pretty much everybody are welcome to attend. The whole city has made a big effort to offer everybody something – stores are serving snacks and drinks, there are parties, events, showrooms, you name it! Unfortunately none of us could afford to go this year, but hopefully we’ll be able to in february.
You can find all the shows, events, showrooms etc. here

2PM Model Management just released their spring/summer 2011 show package, which contains all of their big models, new faces and rising stars. The black and white pictures of their more or less naked models, seem so perfect and unique – every one of them! The looks are very clean and sophisticated , but still very cool – very 2PM.
They’ve heard our prayers, and on the 2nd of September Zara will finally open a brand new webshop!
The webshop will only be availabe in a few countries in Europe though – they’re not even talking about opening anything on the US market. But hey, they got the new episodes of the City and the Hills, now it’s our turn!
(- and hey, talking about the lace shorts! The picture is from the june 2010 lookbook, so will probably be out soon)
“Does anybody even use the word resort? Even people who have resorts? We call it Spring.”
Said by Stella herself, so funny – and so true. Spring was also her inspiration when she made the collection for 2011 – the early spring where everything begins to grow and come alive. The collection was divided into five groups: black, white, blue, rosa and the flowers.
I think the collection is very feminim and romantic, very beautiful – would love the lace shorts in my wardrobe!
As you might know the CFDA was held monday night in New York- ‘the Oscar of fashion’ as the actor Anthony Mackie also called it. Plenty of fab designers and beautiful people in beautiful clothes. The most beautiful though must have been Sarah Jessica Parker – after seeing her in the yellow Valentino dress at the SATC2 premiere, I didn’t think she could get anymore beautiful, but wauw – was I wrong! She wore a dress by Alexander McQueen, especially picked out for her by the labels new designer – Lee’s earlier assistent, Sarah Burton. The colors pattern and the colors are just amazing. Apparently SJP also gave a tribute speech to the great and very missed designer, which was followed by a small runway show of his last collection. All together it must have been an amazing night! As the CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg said: ” Tonight is the night we designers and members of the industry salute our peers and celebrate their talents. We are a family.”
It was Marc Jacobs who well-deserved ran off with the wanted prize ‘Women Designer of the Year’.
