what is it about the absence of eyebrows...

that makes lara stone such an oddly beautiful creature.
She is so fierce and her bod is to die for.

Lara has been on the radar for several years now, but I think she finally found her look, and she's going to hit it big beginning this spring with the ALL LARA issue of Paris Vogue - can't wait!

versace spring 09

at first i thought these images (from the spring 09 versace campaign) were a play on using sets in photography, and that the water was some sort of trompe l'oeil prop she was leaning on and that layered up with waves behind her.

alas, it was just a glass railing.

But on a different note - these are Versace? Seems everyone is going the safe route this spring. I mean, they chose Moss and Bundchen - possibly the most over-exposed models of the moment (and many moments) and threw them in white dresses on some sort of yacht or oceanside mansion. I know the times are tough, but a little creativity never hurt anyone, right? The gals do look gorgeous of course.

lyrics. part one.

revisiting feist.

'and its impossible to tell,
how important something was,
and what you might have missed out on,
and how it might have changed it all,
and how it might have changed it all for him'

feist, intuition

speaking of shoes...

best. blog. ever.

posting photos like this:

often, but not TOO often, makes this one of those wait-on-the-edge-of-your-google-reader blogs. (you know what i mean right? hitting refresh like nobody's business...or maybe thats just me)

not that i want to get into incredibly personal stuff on this blog (ha, not that it matters, as approximately zero people read this blog),
but i can't resist creating a virtual "dear diary" moment showing off my new shoes!
