And the winner is... Sarah Burton! The successor to the great Alexander McQueen was the chosen designer for the royal wedding dress. Perfectly lacy, surprisingly not overdone (for a royal wedding) and paired with a gorgeously subtle veil, the gown looked stunning on an even more stunning Kate. "The dress itself features a lace applique of hand-cut flowers on the bodice and skirt made by the Royal School of Needlework. All fabrics used were made by British companies and included English lace and French Chantilly lace, ivory and white satin gazar with the underskirt made of silk tulle trimmed with Cluny lace. The back of the custom McQueen gown was finished with 58 gazar and organza covered buttons fastened by Rouleau loops. Kate also wore hand-made McQueen shoes made of ivory duchesse satin with lace hand-embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework. The Duchess of Cambridge's silk tulle veil was held in place by a Cartier tiara, lent to bride by the Queen." Congratulations to the lovely couple.
Amazing and hilarious. Great ad by Sony for the Cybershot, featuring the fabulous Marilyn Monroe. Agency: Saatchi & Saatchi.

Check out the exotic summer feel in the editorial named "Das große Blau" for Vogue Germany May 2011 featuring Julia Stegner, shot by Alexi Lubomirski. Some photos have perhaps too much lighting in certain areas, making facial expressions look less natural, but the different shades of blue in contrast with the more organic green and brown hues is very aesthetic. Nice.

Coming out tomorrow 04.22.2011, the new collaboration between Malandrino and Lacoste is a playfully classic mix of tennis-tradition and and edgy silhouettes, all topped off with the emblematic crocodile. I'm loving the short white pointelle dress with its barely-there "belt". Catherine Malandrino keeps true to her favorite dolman sleeves, off the shoulder tops, wide leg pants and girly curve-loving dresses while maintaining Lacoste characteristics. Just one question though: the Catherine look-a-like model = irony or intention? Sweet!

Sorry for my delay in posting, I've been distracted by the phenomenal weather that's been given to us here in Paris. Speaking of phenomenal, check out the beautifully delicate work by Akiko Ikeuchi, Japanese graduate of the University of Fine Arts in Tokyo. DOPE.
