Here’s to the original bombshell

Here's to the original bombshell

With all the pretending-to-be and so called “bombshells” that are flooding our daily gossip channels I think it’s about time we pay homage and remember what the real deal look(ed) like. I am by no means the kind of gal who’d go all sexy, blonde, big haired and pouty, but there has been a time, in the early 2000 to be precise, where I was a lot more, stimulated if you will, to perhaps have a look on the wild and sexier side…

My mum, still in horror as to how in gods name this could have happened, could elaborate on my slight obsession with no other than Pamela Anderson. Now I have liked her look then, and I am sticking to my, or erm … her, guns. Besides the fact that she is naturally beautiful, which so many of her current wanna bees are definitely not, with legs that were so perfectly toned and tanned, again, which again, so many babes nowadays can’t seem to copy (hard work might not be something they signed up for at the door to immediate stardom), but Pamela Anderson will always look just perfect and not perfectly contrived.

She certainly has never tried to be a fashiony type, and has always dressed in a way that she is not trying to pretend to accentuate her intellect… If you know what I mean. Whether it’s with baggy or tight jeans, big T-shirt or tiny skirt, she’s always a knockout. Naturally.
And then there’s her hair. Something I personally would never want to call my own. But… You get my point… It’s great.
And looking at her shaggy, sometimes straight hair again, confirms my point about layers. Layers are simply so much more fab than a straight cut. And Carine would most def agree,.. At least on this point.

LA is my Lady

LA is my Lady

Mad Men’s absolutely final Season premiered last night. Judging by some of the screen shots, no sadly I have not seen it yet, I see a number of tendencies making a whole lot of sense.

Riviera… Je ne sais quoi…

Riviera... Je ne sais quoi...

The Riviera. Whether it is the French or the Italian Riviera, the word alone lets my heart skip a beat. It immediately evokes a feeling of utter bliss, sunshine, warmth and I can almost smell the scent of skin sizzling in the sun. And I know I am not the only one.
There is of course a reason for our popular opinion and feelings linked to this particular word. For more than 50 years people have bee writing songs, movies and poems about these exceptional places. Designers have based entire collections and photographers and magazines have used the Riviera for endless amounts of stories and moods etc. I am quite pressed for words to describe the certain Riviera-esque vibe,  as nothing seems to quite hit it on the spot. Hence I shall simple put this in my bestest french, “it’s got that certain je-ne-sais-quoi”.
On a rainy sunday like this is, I felt there’s nothing better to please you than with a collection of wonderful imagery that can hopefully translate my feeling about these most wonderful places.

The following images are a mixture of Riviera-heavy movies such as Purple Noon, Talented Mr Ripley, How to catch a thief, Bonjour Tristesse and La Piscine, as well as plenty of photographs of the very talented Mr Slim Aarons, who I believe has very much been a big part in orchestrating and communicating that certain “je ne sais quoi” feeling we now experience as the Riviera.

Here’s to Street Style!

Here's to Street Style!

Street style. Everybody is obsessed with it. I adore few things so much as scrolling through images of Tommy Ton or other cool shooters alike.

Having said that, through sheer popularity of the trade, one tends to stumble across some fairly mediocre stuff before hitting style heaven. It seems as if every girl who owns an iPhone and a shopping card at Zara thinks she’s an aspiring street style goddess. Oh and one can spot them a street style mile away, wearing a black leathery type of trousers, blazer, biker boots, tons of jewellery and slightly curled ombré hair…

Let’s all clap our hands for these street stylers, the true queens of the street style jungle!
