To watch: Rose Lewis

Rose Lewis is a New York dancer which has been discovered by the famous photographer Bruce Weber. Rose is simply a gorgeous creature, the imaginary child of Grace Jones and Naomi Campbell. She was lately shot by Bruce for Vman and the Opening Ceremony newly launched magazine. Something tells me we will be seeing Rose a lot in fashion publications and other projects…

Being Anna Karenina

I can’t wait for Keira Knightley to interpret Anna Karenina. The famous heroin has been played by legendary actresses such as Vivien Leigh, Greta Garbo or the amazing Sophie Marceau, hopefully Keira will maintain the level of excellence and give a new approach to the complex character… Welcome to the world of Russian aristocracy!

Spring Summer 13 Flash: opened boots

Among the several designers showing during NY Fashion Week for the Spring Summer 2013 season, some of them are already picking my interest: next Summer it seems that opened boots will be “de rigueur”! I particulary love the Gladiators from Altuzarra, the opened toe sandals revisited as boots at Alexander Wang and the flat version at Victoria Beckham.

Florence and the fashionistas

Everybody has frenetically sang at least once the 2010 enchanting “Dog days are over”. Florence Welch, from Florence and the Machines, in addition to be on top of charts since her debut album, fascinates the fashion scene with her sharp taste when it comes to wear designers (Valentino,  Givenchy Couture…) for select parties and prestigious red carpet  events. Blake Lively, who became a close friend of the singer, invited her to perform to her secret wedding to actor Ryan Reynolds a couple of days ago and Gucci Creative director Frida Giannini just announced that she will be designing Florence’s costumes for her next tour. What’s next for Florence? One thing we know is there will be more couture breathtaking looks to come!
