I found this recently...its a different take on Alice in Wonderland (like Gwen Stefani in "What you waiting for" music video) . This fashionable story layout was in Vogue magazine of December 2003 and photographed by Annie Leibovitz. Who might I say is extraordinary! She did that amzing photo of Tom and Katie where baby Suri was in Tom's jacket. (Featured on the cover of Vanity Fair). Anyway, I really like this layout and hope you enjoy. By the way, you'll spot some prominent people of the fashion world-Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Tom Ford, well see for YOURSELF!
FYI: What I like about Alice in Wonderland in general, is that its one of those stories that's way out there. The imagination is incredible and I think Natalia Vodinova pulls off the emotion of going to a world beyond her own. My fav pic is the one where she looks like a gaint in this tiny tiny house. Oh! And if you want to read the article on this you can got to:

Fashion and film individually can be considered an art. When fashion and film collide its ingenuity so to speak, making the two work together is complete mastery. And Marie Antoinette is a very good example of this. From colors of the pastries to the details in the Queen's shoes to the beautiful gardens-all inspirational. And just for kicks I want to suggest some books for all of you fashion lovers out there : Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution by CAROLINE WEBER, In Vogue: The Illustrated History of the World's Most Famous Fashion Magazine, Christian Dior by DIANA DE MARLY, and Audrey Style by PAMELA KEOGH CLARKE.

These are a few of my favorite ads by Prada. I love how there are metallic tones involved and the shoes are absolutely to die for! They look great with the grey tights. Which I think is a major trend (tights in general). But looking at these makes me think about sleep...and then I wondered how important is it..really?! I did a little research and found that not every person has to sleep a certain amount hours (it differs for everyone). Sometimes I can get 6 hours of sleep and feel great compared to ten where I end up still being tired. And I've found out that not getting enough sleep continually, creates a bigger chance in someone using alcohol. If you do get enough sleep though, the hours you spend sleeping will contribute to better skin and weight loss!

Spring brings all kinds of trends out, but I want to feature trends in accessories. For me the ballet flat is a classic, and I love headbands that go beyond the norm. There are so many different designs out there. And I really adore the Marc Jacobs gem-studded headband at the very top. Oh...but besides flats and headbands, there are wedges with that woooden detail, metallic heels, layers of long necklaces, and pendants too! These are all by designers of course, so I am giving credit where its due. Designers featured: Marc Jacobs, Chloe, Peter Som, Zac Posen, Blugirl, and Anna Sui. The shoes are and accessories are from theses designers Spring 2007 collections...so go and check them out!

Here's trends I've spotted for this fall. There's crocidile skin bags, flat boots, and clothing (usually jackets) with a military twist. Out of the 3 items I love the flat boots the most! The designer is Oscar de la Renta. The boots really compliment the collection. Which if you've seen it, is low-key when it comes to colors. Yet it has sophistication and a classy edge.
