A look inside

I bite my words. While the cover didn’t appeal, the editorial lurking within is enough to merit me staring in awe for the next week or so. So I’m really probably just posting them here so they’re more conveniently accessible for me to do just that. The styling is Alt at her best, and what is most frisson-inducing is the fact that the looks aren’t even that aspirational. I’m pretty sure that’s a pair of American Apparel black bull denim shorts that I will now be dredging out of some dismal drawer to belt and strut about in with motorcycle boots. Well, maybe on that last part, since I don’t quite own the Frye engineer boots of my dreams yet.

And just because it wouldn’t feel right not to:

En Vogue, this month styled by Geraldine Saglio.

It just gets better – former D&G model and L’Uomo Vogue editor Giovanna Battaglia in Une Fille Un Style. One of the more risk-taking fashion editors, always to jaw-dropping effect. Definitely buying a hard copy of this one.

The new breed

23/03/2008, General

Seriously. Coolest post I’ve seen in a while. The Fashion Robot decided to treat her little sister & co. to a photo shoot and the results could be fodder for the likes of Nylon or Teen Vogue. I’m in lust with that gray sweater/blue tights ensemble, and have decided that I am outraged that I don’t have a little sister to dress up. Sigh. This is only a smattering so be sure to check them all out.

It’s that glorious part of the month when the latest French Vogue is about to reveal itself in all of it’s maddeningly chic entirety. The air almost feels more fresh…but that’s probably just me. Here we have Kate Moss (insert subdued snore) gazing out from beneath that controversial fringe in all of her wood-nymph-on-a-Harley glory. But more importantly, Sasha is once again featured in a breathtakingly cool ed, which can only be interpreted as a tribute to the nimiety of the ’80s. Awesome. Only Sasha could make me want to don asymmetrical volume and hacked-up disco balls. I like to think that she brings such character and feeling to her photos because she is actually a many-layered individual and even an artist. Her work is reminiscent of a more whimsical Francesco Clemente, no?

Emmanuelle Alt circa ’88, rocking the Texas Tuxedo better than I’ve ever seen it done. Depp-inclusive.

Second official work outfit photos, wondrously taken in the early morning hours. First official breaking in of the M by MJ “soccer” boots, which despite a staggeringly high heel are relatively comfortable. And for anyone out there who lacks access to the fabled Tabio tights brand like I do, I really recommend H&M’s (80 or 100 denier, I forget) tights, they are ferociously opaque.

Dress and tights, H&M. Boots, Marc by Marc Jacobs. Added post-documentation: F21 leather jacket, Target leather gloves, vintage scarf, Anna Corinna tote bag.

(Who knew that Photoshop was so different on Macs? Does anyone know how to resize a picture using pixels instead of inches or crop with custom configurations?)

The debut of the fringe bag

I was wearing my diamond patterned black tights with this but it was so hot in the H&M dressing rooms that I couldn’t take it anymore.

T, Urban Outfitters. Blazer, Ralph Lauren. Shorts, Forever21. Boots, vintage. Bag, Lucky.
