Happy Birthday KATE!

It’s Kate Moss’s Birthday y’all.

Today she turns 38!

I usually don’t give a birthday shout-out to people I don’t personally know but this is a special case.

 Kate Moss has been a FASHION ICON for little girls and gay boys for decades.

Her penchant for wearing sky-high Louboutin Pigalle stilettos, vintage Dior, LUXE fur coats, all with a careless l deshabille grace have made her a legend among the fashion-crazy crowd.

Here’s a few of favorites among my endless collection of Kate Moss photos…

That’s all.

Later, gators:)

Balmain Homme 2011 Fur Vest

So I saw a picture of my favorite pop star Rihanna wearing a fur vest while she was in London and I immediately thought, “SICK!”

Then I remembered Balmain Homme Fall/Winter 2011 had something similar. I thought Rihanna’s may have been one and the same. After some backtracking of my tumblr posts, I found the authentic Balmain version.

I love anything fur and in your face so both are gorgeous to me. Too bad I was wrong. I love the idea of Rihanna wearing Balmain Homme.

Rihanna’s fur vest is more suited to the ladies and the rough-around-the-edges appeal of the Balmain version is more menswear.

On another note, school has kept me busy and kinda depressed to do or think about anything else so I’m kinda glad SOMETHING, as trivial as a fur vest, got me out of my everyday funk.

My tux jacket is still in pieces and super late so I have to bust my ass to finish it and not fail my tailoring class. So wish me luck anonymous readers!

Til next time:)

Countdown

Countdown –  Beyoncé

I’ve been waiting for this video to come out and I was not disappointed. Beyonce brought it like she always does, even while pregnant. She co-directed the video along with Adria Petty, who also worked on the ‘Sweet Dreams’ music video, also another of my faves. Apparently, the video was inspired by 1960s pop art and the beatnik movement of the 50s and 60s. It also payed homage to Michael Jackson and Audrey Hepburn.

More infor about the song and video HERE.

Here’s some screencaps of my fave parts:

This dress is Thierry Mugler. So glam with the baby bump.

Goodness synchronizing this dance must have taken hours. See how only three Beyonces are dancing in sync at a time  from left to right.

This was so cute. Finger-choreography!

Just cuz I thought she looked particularly GORGEOUS in this shot.

It’s like she’s saying “Heyyyyyyyyy, I know I look hot right here!” LOL!

Hope you enjoyed that:)

My Heart Takes Over

My Heart Takes Over – The Saturdays

What’s it gonna be?
Are you willingly walking away from this?
What’s it gonna take?
Can you really break this love?

Where you gonna go?
Tell me do you know when does your heart admit?
‘Cause if you leave, baby then leave
Make up your mind before you shut the door

‘Cause if there’s a chance we might’ve missed
And if there’s a ray of light in this
Baby you should know that this is where my heart takes over, over..over…

Going back in time,
You know we have tried too hard to let this fade,
Almost disappeared, so we made it here, baby
And look me in the eye, promise I won’t cry
This is your choice to make
‘Cause if you go, baby then go
You change your mind I won’t be here no more

‘Cause if there’s a chance we might’ve missed
And if there’s a ray of light in this
Baby you should know that this is where my heart takes over, over…

And if there’s a small piece left of us
Somewhere in the battles we have lost
Baby look at me ’cause this is where my heart takes over, over..over…

This is where my heart takes over, over
This is where my heart takes over, over
This is where my heart takes over, over
This is where my heart takes over, over

What’s it gonna be?
Are you willingly walking away from this?

‘Cause if there’s a chance we might’ve missed
And if there’s a ray of light in this
Baby you should know that this is where my heart takes over, over…

And if there’s a small piece left of us
Somewhere in the battles we have lost
Baby look at me ’cause this is where my heart takes over, over..over…

This is where my heart takes over, over
This is where my heart takes over, over
This is where my heart takes over, over
This is where my heart takes over, over

I love this song. I love the beginning, how Vanessa White starts the song all soft serene, and then  it slams into a powerful chorus.  It’s definitely bound to be a hit. I love a good power ballad. Now I have it on repeat trying to sound like Vanessa at the beginning. It’s harder than you might think not to over-sing the intro or sound like you’re mumbling.

Hope you like the song:)

We Found Love

We Found Love – Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris

Yellow diamonds in the light
Now we’re standing side by side
As your shadow crosses mine
What it takes to come alive

It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny
But I’ve gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place

Shine a light through an open door
Love and life I will divide
Turn away ’cause I need you more
Feel the heartbeat in my mind

It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny
But I’ve gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place

Yellow diamonds in the light
Now we’re standing side by side
As your shadow crosses mine

We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place

We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place
We found love in a hopeless place

There’s been a lot of criticism about the song being overriden by techno beats and very little lyricism but I think it’s great. It’s a DANCE song. And that’s what it is. Get over it, Haters.

On another note, I like Rihanna’s look for the upcoming music video for the song. It’s very rock-a-billy via 2011. Lots of stone-washed denim and red bandanas.  I can’t wait to watch the video due to all the buzz about her filming it in Ireland on a wheat field. Brings to mind the ‘Only Girl In The World’ video.

I DIE for the Balenciaga Spring 2011 Biker boots she’s wearing on the singles’ album cover.

SO SICK!

I can’t wait to hear more about Rihanna’s new album already out in November. Damn she just keeps popping out hit songs. And I still have ‘What’s My Name?’ on repeat.

Fefe Dobson – Can’t Breathe

I love Fefe Dobson. She spoke to my angsty teen heart when no artist did. I’m glad she didn’t just fade into oblivion. Her new look is great. Her new music is pretty good too. The video is amazing. Her outfit, the lighting, the wind fan, and smoke cans combine to make it one of her best music videos.

I kinda wanna make my own video chucking colored smoke cans into an empty space now, or have a fashion show in the desert with smoke cans billowing smoke into the air while models come out of nowhere wearing my designs.
