Makeup Inspired By: Birds Of Paradise, In All Their Naturally Bold Beauty

Makeup Inspired By: Birds Of Paradise, In All Their Naturally Bold Beauty

Yesterday, I flew to California, so I’m presently listening to birds squawking outside right now and it’s awesome; typically, I don’t even hear pigeons from outside my apartment in the early morning–just traffic and drunk people coming home from Dinner On Ludlow.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all saw and heard these gorgeous creatures all the time? (The birds, not the drunk people.) So, to pay homage to their natural beauty and bold plumage, I thought I would do a Makeup Inspired By post on them. More »

Karen Elson Is A Retro Springtime Flower Goddess In Harper's Bazaar UK

It’s officially spring, y’all! Birds are chirping, buds are opening, and today was the very first day this year I ventured outside without any fabric covering my legs. (The bottom two-thirds, anyway; it’s not leotard weather yet.) And it will grow even springier next month, which magazines shall celebrate with various spring-themed spreads! As a sucker for both spring and flowers, I do not tire of these kinds of photos, especially when they feature cool people like Karen Elson. She’s best known outside the fashion world as Jack White‘s ex-wife, but she’s also a musician in her own right, as well as a great model who’s been working in the industry for some time. And age 34, she’s getting more work than ever. This is hardly over the hill, but it’s still nice to see in such an age-ist industry. Click through to get psyched for spring by looking at Karen Elson wearing pretty clothes and flowers. More »

As you may have heard, it’s the fucking apocalypse in New York right now. Everything sucks, pretty much, and I feel a little guilty for sitting here blogging about models and shit when I could be out helping the people who were not as lucky as me. But maybe some of you want to look at pretty pictures to cheer yourselves up? If so, check out this gorgeous editorial Sean and Seng shot of Laetitia Casta for the November issue of Flair. There are no weird overtones of bestiality this time, and its colors are so lush that my eyes feel stuffed after looking at it. The 34-year-old supermodel, of course, looks as radiant as ever. (If it seems like I post about her a lot, it’s probably because I’ve had a girl crush on her since I was 12.) More »
