thanks, marie claire

August 7, 2009

ashley appears in this stunning editorial in marie claire next month, and the whole thing is absolutely beautiful. if i had a shot of myself framed by a beautiful antique doorway, wearing a high-slit gown perfectly draped around my body, i’m pretty sure i’d die happy.

from the interview:

“I think you’re either born with a sense of style or you’re not,” Ashley says in her small, soft voice, giving her knuckles a loud crack. “Either you care or you don’t. And we”—she and Mary-Kate—”love fashion.

“The dark eyeliner, the scarf around the head—it’s just so interesting and natural.”

“Mary-Kate and I are very aware of trends and style, but at the end of the day, we don’t even think twice about it. It’s just, What do I feel like wearing today, and how do I want to put it together?”

“The amount of beautiful things we’ve ruined—not having the patience for a tailor and cutting everything ourselves … My sister once took an Alaïa dress of mine and just cut the whole thing, and then she was like, ‘I cut it too short.'”

“Mary-Kate and I don’t think about fashion as these clean, beautiful objects. We just kind of wear it and live in it.”


so good, so grunge, so good

i just love the goddamn olsen twins. i love how they make the most ridiculous pieces look so fashionable, and how everything they do is underlined and bolded by extreme confidence and self awareness. i could look at photos of them all day. so now you’re going to.

i think all good fashion blogs just have an olsens homage every now and then. plus, they just got accepted into the cfda, which is completely brilliant.

ashley olsen in vintage at the cfda awards last night. it’s like balmain meets michael jackson meets the floor…but i love it. the olsens really can pull off anything imaginable, while none of it looks as if it is being “pulled off.” it just is, and it’s magnificent.

also, way to go vera wang…everything about her looks fierce. i’m such a sucker for sequins.

there were others i liked, but i really loved these two. thoughts? your favorites of the evening?

also, much congratulations to:

womenswear designer of the year: rodarte
menswear designer of the year: scott sternberg for band of outsiders, and italo zucchelli for calvin klein
accessory designer of the year: jack mccollough and lazaro hernandez for proenza schouler
swarovski award (for emerging talent): alexander wang for womenswear, tim hamilton for menswear, justin guinta for submersive jewelry for accessory design
geoffrey beane lifetime achievement award: anna sui
international award: marc jacobs (for louis vuitton)
board of director’s special tribute: michelle obama

all right, all…i’m off to lay by the pool, and to get some color on this alabaster skin of mine. besos!

all that glitters is rhinestones

oh those RINGS. i love them all, and i think that her beautiful little hand looks magnificent. looking at pictures of the dear olsens just makes my day. and this one is starting gloriously with a pot of coffee, blogging from bed, and ashley olsen’s perfect, glittering hand.

ciao bellas! hope everyone is getting ready to face a lovely day 🙂
