Baroque Angels by Alexander McQueen

Amazing details, beautiful design. That's the moment when garmet becomes art.

Lady in Red

There are things you cannot be indifferent about. One of them is a beautiful woman in red dress. Like Megan Fox in Armani's dress.

Megan wore this dress in Los Angeles at her new movie's 'Jonah Hex' premiere. This bloody red silk dress by Armani PrivĂ© was designed just for her. It goes perfectly with her shiny black hair and simple accessories (black heels, the simplest clutch bag, rings and black nail polish). I  love the neckline with rose at the bottom. It's low and risky, and could look trashy at someone else. Megan looks elegant and sophisticated. I don't remember any fashion faux pas by her. She's this kind of person who looks gorgeous in jeans and t-shirt.  I have just one tip for her - stop doing it to your face. You're beautiful and don't need to change it. You don't want to look like plastic doll, don't you?

Art by Marilyn Manson

We all know that everybody can sing, better or worse. We also know that everybody can design clothes. But can everybody make Art? Do we have to call 'Art' every single daub? I wouldn't call Art Marilyn Manson's paints. They are boring and secondary. I like the colour palette but it irritates me how he tries to be controversial. There's nothing original in it, I've seen all that already. I know - Manson is controversial and likes to shock. I know he's talented and makes (used to make) a really good music. But would anyone notice his paints if he wasn't famous? I doubt.

1950s at Louis Vuitton

It's one of my favourite ad campaign. 3 women representing 3 different types of beauty (blond, dark-haired and ginger) and age (20s, 30s and 40s) were taken to 1950s. I like the atmosphere of dressing room like from Annie Lennox 'Why' video (from my fav 'Diva' album), retro dresses, pin-up hairstyles and lack of aggressiveness. At a time when the best way to sell products is to use nudity and controversy it's nice to see something feminine and just pretty. Only Christy Turlington's chest looks a bit squeezed.
