McQ World

MOLLY SMITH is just a gem as she dons Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall/Winter 2011, does some strange stuff, and discusses her opinion on inexplicable topics such as dreams and dying. The hauntingly beautiful song in the video is called Set Your Arms Down by Warpaint, a group whom I've recently fell in love with (many thanks to Katelynn and Julia for turning me on to them). Shot by Corey Adams in Derbyshire, England.

“More than anyone else in the city, he has the whole visual history of the last 40 or 50 years of New York. It’s the total scope of fashion in the life of New York.” - Oscar de la Renta

For decades, Bill Cunningham has contributed so much to the world of fashion and street photography. As a photographer and columnist for The New York Times, he is one of the first to make a career out of a rather simple task: following around and capturing unexpected moments of well known individuals in the industry. His work creates a chronicle history of fashion trends and styles through pictures. Not only has he photographed many celebrities and socialites, but also people that walk the streets of Manhattan every day. 

I would love to see this documentary on him.. but as of right now, it's being played at Film Forum in New York :( I checked online and found out that it will be featured sometime in June (exact date unannounced) at the  DETROIT FILM THEATRE, which is also a part of The DIA. I always enjoy going over there from time to time. It's really not that bad of an area and I've found a lot of interesting places there (MOCAD, CASS CAFE, HEIDELBERG PROJECT). If you like art, I suggest you take some time off from your busy schedules and visit!


Kate Moss gave them something to talk about as she wrapped up the LOUIS VUITTON FALL 2011 show, puffed on her cigarette, and strutted down the runway. My reaction? Surprised at first, but a well expected sight to see from her.

I've been playing this song on repeat for the past few days. It's very mellow and has an interesting mix of heavily-layered synths and drums. Think Prince meeting MIA. The Intuition Remix is also pretty solid, CLICK.
Starting from the top: Dries Van Noten, Dieppa Restrepo, vintage Norma Kamali, Dieppa Restrepo.

Oxford flats are my new obsession.

this is exactly what I need right now.


I would have been the girl sobbing and being pulled by the crowd.

These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss, consume: The sweetest honey
Is loathsome in his own deliciousness
And in the taste confounds the appetite:
Therefore love moderately; long love doth so;
Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.

- Romeo + Juliet [Act 2, Scene 6]


You can call me Pocahontas.It took me awhile, but I finally learned how to do the fishtail braid. Everyone fell in love all over again with braids when the look was featured last year in  ALEXANDER WANG'S SPRING 2010 COLLECTION and the MISSONI SPRING 2010 COLLECTION. It's perfect for those days when you want to keep your hair out of your face... which is like everyday for me. Plus, it looks cute and it's something different than a ponytail. Try it out this Spring!
