Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs looks so amazing in July’s music issue of Elle Magazine.  I’ve always loved her and the bad.  Her performances on stage are probably the best I’ve ever seen.

Even with all of the wedding excitement, I still managed to catch Sasha Grey’s big screen debut in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen Sasha look so lovely.  Her wardrobe included La Perla, Costume National, and lots of black.  Unfortunately her whimsicality had so much working against it, as the film was not particularly good.  I saw the potentiality for an amazing performance but they didn’t ask enough of Sasha Grey.  She was there, willing and able, but the story left so much to be desired and I’m not referring to sex.

Sasha debuted another thing this week, as discovered through The Pipeline, and that was the sheer cut-out pantyhose designed by American Apparel.  Check out their “Coming Soon” section and you’ll see all the surprises they have in store for us!  I particularly like these pantyhose as they appear so liberating.  That’s right, let them hang out.

Guess which girl is dressed up for the faire?

Yesterday was the last day of the Renaissance Pleasure Faire and my friend Natalie and I made a pact that we would go this year.  My long-time boyfriend had never been so he was in on it as well.  We’d been planning for weeks to go and it just so happened to be like a 1,000 degrees the day we went!  Thankfully we lathered on the sunscreen and put on our most comfortable ensembles; we were prepared for anything.

When we arrived we quickly entered into an alternative universe – a world full of huzaas, bulging breasts and giant turkey legs for lunch.  I was pretty excited to see what kind of jewels, gems, and amulets awaited me at the faire.  Though I did not leave with anything, there was plenty which inspired me.  I particularly enjoyed the crowns made of feathers, fur tails and the bird feather bib necklace.  I spy a DIY project!  There was also some great metal necklaces that I would’ve bought had they been made in gold.  Oh yeah, lets not forget my magical geodes.

Who worked it at the Ren Faire?  Aside from Natalie and I, here are the girls who were dressed to impress.  You’ve got a classic American Apparel dress, an awesome bold print, and a top made of steel.

Casual, Cool, Slow + STEADY

Saturday night we made it out to Space 15 Twenty’s opening party for the new line Cool, Casual by Slow and Steady Wins the Race.  It doesn’t get any better than conceptual clothing, does it?  The canvas Birkin and black canvas wedges [as seen on Tania] caught my eye right away and I’m already looking forward to going back and buying them.  You must stop by the space to see what a smart collection this is.  Not only are the clothes modern and chic, black and white, casual and cool, but they’re at a price that you won’t kill yourself over.

Have you ever got the feeling that I am really into black sandals, wedges, and heels?  These sandals designed by Mary Ping take the cake.  Oh, and that’s just me in the black gladiator wedges of 08′ fame.

If I were to assemble a super group of celebrity best friends Julia Restoin-Roitfeld would be one of the first on my list.  Julia looks absolutely stunning in the April issue of British Harper’s Bazaar but I don’t expect anything less from a girl whose mother is Carine Roitfeld.   Great genes? Yes.

I have noticed all over the internet young women celebrating Julia for her not-so-typical model body and it is refreshing seeing another type of beauty represented in magazines.  A brunette with ample breasts, thighs and hips – not the typical fashion plate, but then again I’ve never cared for “typical.”  I am just dying over these ethereal photos.  Who said fashion photography wasn’t legit?

See the rest after the break.


Daisy’s Birthday Suit

I love Daisy Lowe, the beautiful nude

We have begun packing for our move and I have come across many items that I’ve wanted to post on Fashion Intel.  These photos of Daisy Lowe from Paradis Magazine are some of my favorites from 2008.  The whole magazine is actually quite impressive, including about 40 pages of Mariacarla Boscano by Juergen Teller and erotic lithographs by John Lennon.  The magazine contains mostly nudity but the photographs are all quite lovely.  If you’re looking for Paradis, you might have to check the adult magazine section as that’s where I found it.



For Whom the BELLE Tolls

I cannot wait to receive my February issue of NYLON magazine!  Camilla Belle is one of my favorites.  I wish she was offered better roles in Hollywood instead of junk like 10,000 BC.  Who saw The Ballad of Jack & Rose?  Did you love it or what?
