October is my favorite month of the year. Why? One word. HALLOWEEN. Everything leads up to this amazing day and you have 30 days to prepare. The weather starts cooling off in L.A., all the stores put out their skull tsotchkes, and black makeup becomes omnipresent. What more could a girl ask for?

This October my boyfriend and I are heading up to Nor Cal to spend Halloween with my sister in San Francisco. I’ll be dressing up as Lady Gaga – nay, I will become Lady Gaga – and Asael still has no idea what obnoxious character he’s going to conjure up.

I wanted to start this month off with a post of some beautiful images in the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar. High fashion meets Tim Burton. What you can look forward to for the month of October on Fashion Intel:

+ Black, black and more black
+ Witches, Magic and the Occult
+ An updated site with lots of changes



Marc Jacobs 1998 – 2009

Remember the guy who used to be everyone’s favorite? Yes, MARC JACOBS!

I was so excited to read that every MJ and Juergen Teller ad from 1998 – 2009 was compiled to make a Marc Jacobs super book.  What a relief, because I was so disappointed when I bought the MJ book published by Assouline.  How exciting to see pages filled with old Jessica Stam, Kim Gordon, Winona Ryder, Rachel Feinstein, and every cool girl we want to be best friends with.  I have most of these ads saved from old magazines but I am so happy to finally own the book I’ve been asking for.

Winona Ryder is one of my favorite actresses, ever.  To my delight while at a newsstand in Santa Monica this weekend I saw the latest issue of Elle UK with Winona on the cover.  Since I promised myself I’d cut down on my magazine buying (yeah, right) I passed on picking this one up and just told myself to find some magazine scans when I got home.  To my surprise there were no good images online, but I am still thankful for these water damaged ones from website Winona Forever.

Don’t you miss the intelligent brunette with effortless style!!?!?!?!  Aren’t you ready for a Winona comeback?  I know I sure am.


Oh my, Marc!

Cathy Horyn of The New York Times recently wrote an article on the irreverent Marc Jacobs ads shot by Juergen Teller. She posited that Marc, above all in his ads, creates a hip world that everyone wants to join, and I would not disagree. This article has been collecting discussions online and the ladies over at Jezebel are asking their readers if Marc’s newish Posh ads are objectifying to women or simply cheeky?

I will be the first in line to open up a feminist discourse, but never once did Posh in a bag raise a red flag. Rather, I thought Marc/Juergen Teller’s ads brought Posh back to planet earth. What she would call, taking the piss out. Many of the comments regarding this ad suggest that over-criticism of the aforementioned appears to lack a sense of humor. Saying that women take things to seriously is a trope that is often used to undermine them, but in the case of Marc Jacobs, I will contest never have I found him to objectify women.

Though I have felt on the outs with Marc lately, after the whole copied scarf brouhaha- I cannot ignore how him and I were once inseparable. Truly. Search my closet and you will see. I have always seen him as an ally to women, not only offering larger sizes than most designers but also using unconventional models.

Try arguing with this collection of some of my favorite Marc ads from over the years. Tell me that Marc is doing girls a disfavor after looking at M.I.A., Gerren Taylor, Yoko, Cindy Sherman, Rachel Feinstein, Kim Gordon & Family, Winona Ryder, and Charlotte Rampling. Oh, and don’t forget the t-shirt he made for my girl Hillary Clinton.

That is what they have attempted to do with Ms. Beckham, whose participation forces a different question than the banality of “Is she beautiful?
