Anna Dello Russo for Interview /// Country Nurse by Richard Prince
That collection was composed by 1950's style clear perspex nurse uniforms worn over bright coloured mini dresses worn with white nurses hats with a single red letter on the front, spelling out "Louis Vuitton". Inspiration for it probably became from Richard Prince's Nurse Paintings.
Julianne Moore for Haper's Bazaar /// Crazy Nurse #3 by Richard Prince
This" Louis Vuitton - Richard Prince" connection has also been used by Peter Lindbergh,
who portrayed Julianne Moore as art masterpieces in a great editorial for Harper's Bazaar.
Car print is cool, well, all Prada S/S 2012 was cool. And us mortals have to see pictures and pictures of fashion editors and street style godesses wearing every piece from this collection and just drool over it.
Well, there is a humble alternative to it, a couple of dress print dresses you can get for less than 30 €.
Blogs are packed with pictures of minimalist beautiful houses, most of them minimalist and perfectly
decored with glaring white walls. They are nice to see, but - in my opinion - they end up being all quite the same and lack personality. Therefore I always settle to more risky and boldcolours when it comes to home decor, they give a home a stronger character and charm. So, play the color game if you dare to!
Oh, didn't Florence Welch look a bit dreary on the NME Awards? Even though she received an award and there were so many other distinguished guests from the music business to mingle with during the event.
and The Drums - the singer Jonathan Pierce is easy to identify due to his perpetual white socks-.
But as you can see, she didn't keep that face all night, and in the party she loosened up a bit and seems like she had a pretty good time. Dressed up in Moschino, Louboutins in one hand and cocktail in the other, I wouldn't mind to party like that either. (And yes, the girl behind on the right in the pic is Alexa Chung)
The British Teddy Boys are a subculture formed by 50s rock ‘n roll dandies in long jackets and creepers. They were the first youth group in England to differentiate themselves as teenagers, helping create a youth market.
But parallel to this, there was a whole subculture of Teddy Girls (also knows as Judies).
They dressed much like their male counterparts, sporting short hair, pants, sharply cut suit jackets and flat shoes. Their choice of clothes wasn’t only for aesthetic effect: these girls were collectively rejecting post-war austerity.
They were young working-class women, often from Irish immigrant families who had settled in the poorer districts of London - Walthamstow, Poplar and North Kensington.
They would typically leave school at the age of 14 or 15, and work in factories or offices. Teddy Girls spent much of their free time buying or making their trademark clothes.
It was a head-turning, fastidious style from the fashion houses, which had launched haute-couture clothing lines recalling the Edwardian era.
Get some inspiration with these Ken Russell's pictures. In 1955, this photographer created a series called The Last of the Teddy Girls, which featured photographs taken against the war-torn backdrop of London’s East End.
These quiet portraits -a direct contrast to Russell’s later bombastic directorial style (Women in Love, The Devils, The Boyfriend and The Who’s rock opera Tommy)- are an unexpected and exceptional historical record of cool.
"They document both the attitude and innocence of 1950′s youth and are an embodiment of the rebellious nature that Russell possessed throughout his life."
Don't forget to pair all of it with the proper attitude!
