I'm Dirty, Mean and Mighty Unclean

Fantastic Man is what I read for street cred on the train.
Then I get home and bust out Martha Stewart Living.

I've been rushing through Diana Vreeland's autobiography, where she notoriously declares that "pink is the navy blue of India".

Leafing through March's issue of Vanity Fair I saw images for the Spring/Summer 2008 Hermès ads and they're INSANE. I haven't been this excited about an ad campaign in ages, it's just insane. The whole thing makes me want to go to India, coat myself in pigments and celebrate Holi.

I hoped if I trawled the internet I would find the rest of the campaign. And so I have.

It's such a beautiful idea, the saturated pink and the bright orange are so striking against the dusty grey of the elephant's skin.

All of it reminds me of this image from the Jaeger archive, the way the elephants are opulently painted, the pinks, everything.

White Light White Heat

Gorgeous, floaty, dreamy shot for the new season at Sonia Rykiel.

On this day we become legendary

Remember the Gucci ads with the snakes? The Kenzoki ads of creams of the purest white? The Clinique girl, with all the stuff on her face?
All him.

As well as these transcending shots, from the spectrum in the Bulgari book. Unreal.

Powder-soft skin textures.

Icebergs that look like meringues.

I wonder if he shot this in a studio and how big the waves really were.

It blows my mind. His studio must have the sickest props department.

See me ride out of the sunset on your colour TV screen

Guido Mocafico has been in my top 3 favourite photographers since I found out about Numéro back in high school.

His site is chock-a-block with incredible photos, from Catherine Deneuve's comb (complete with blond hair) to the most viscid dessert shots.

And shells.

Girl's Got Rythm

Pamela Love has an incredible name and some sick jewelry, like this talon cuff.

Taper jean girl with a motel face

Big big shout out to Rhian, doing wonderful work at Departures. Don't know why you had to go all the way out to Cardiff to do it though.

Check out their tight grids.
