Blast from the past: UNCLE KARL.1972.

I kid you not, look at what I found: Karl Lagerfeld before the fingerless gloves, and black shades.

Karl Lagerfeld circa 1972…not bad, huh?

…and this is what he looks like these days:

Was any one else as shocked as I was?? I totally respect Karl’s work and expertise, however, I couldn’t help but chuckle. He looked so ordinary back in the day!

Street style: Paris Couture Week 2012

I was so focused on critiquing the couture from Paris Couture Week that I didn’t have a chance to comment on the street style from Paris Couture Week! Who doesn’t love to see what the fashion insiders are wearing to the shows? I do! Anywho, I’ve been doing some research and found some pretty sweet style. Below are some of the looks that I enjoyed and found most inspiring:

 Only in Paris…

2  Who’s that?? ANNA WINTOUR.  Enough said.

Philosophy/Inspiration from a fashion Maven

Happy hump day!!

While sipping my morning coffee and catching up on one of my favorite blogs I came across a highly entertaining and semi-thought provoking article about one of my personally favorite fashion icons divas. Apparently, highly respected Editor At Large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan, Anna Dello Russo changes up to not 1, or 2 but 5 times a day. 

Ms. Dello Russo also had some words of wisdom for her fellow females. Women say to me, ‘I’m tired, I don’t want to go out. It’s too much effort.’ And I say to them, ‘You need to take a fashion shower and then you’ll wake up.'”

In other words, get off your lazy ass and put on something fabulous, 5 times a day. LOL. 
 Oh, ADR will never get boring, thats for sure. Below are 5 of my favorite ADR looks (possibly all from any 1 given day) Enjoy!


Which one is your favorite?
