32. Vogue Magazine June 2006

Stuart England's "jewellery" is the best! I love the pendant with the swan and rubies. Visit his website for more pretty things.


I have a total girl crush on Gisele Bundchen.

This spread (of Brooke de Ocampo's home in Argentina) made me so happy. Ah, this is one of those things that I really miss from the magazine of yesteryear: far away places that are almost a thing of fantasy.
While going back through this magazine, I had a flashback of exactly where I was when I first read it. I was in the car with my mom... going on a day trip. It's a nice memory.

31. Vogue Magazine April 2006

I was tickled to see this Nostalgia article by Joyce Carol Oates. I met her earlier this month and she was NOT bright and sunny and approachable. She was kind of crotchety and irritable. Boo to you, JCO.
Lets go to Egypt.

Alexandre Plokhov, I love you. The former designer of Cloak is one adorable man who posses fierce tailoring skills. I first learned of him when I watched the film, Seamless. I had a professor who had a huge crush on him... while Cloak didn't quite work out, I'm excited that he has a new line after spending some time working for Donatella Versace. Yay Alexandre!

Ah Vogue's "Shape" issue. I pretty much think it's the dumbest issue of the year, BUT, I love this dress by Alberta Ferretti. I am a Ferretti junkie.

I love that Michael Kors bikini.

30. Vogue Magazine March 2006

Ahhh I love YSL. And I love Versailles. This takes me there.

Kate Spade advertising is pretty great. Partners & Spade did all the re-working of the Kate Spade brand and they did good.
Chloe has the most beautiful clothes. Swoon!

This Alberta Ferretti ad makes me so jealous. I love that dress and I love the desert.

Nicolas Ghesquiere is the best for Balenciaga... love him!

Rosson Crow is so talented for a young woman. This week one of my friends, who is an artist, was asking me about my art... and I had to admit that everything I do is hard work and a major struggle. Way to go Rosson.

Things have changed drastically in the magazine industry since 2006. This issue was filled with 20+ pages of fashion spreads in exotic places. These days things are so blah...

Irving Penn is such a talented photographer.

This issue also had a wedding spread! I love those! They just don't do it anymore. There's no money. Dita Von Teese and Marilyn Manson tied the knot in 2005... and it unraveled a year later.
