"A work of art is above all an adventure of the mind." -Eugene Ionesco
When I grow up I wanna be...Sylvia Dell’ Orto. Who? Yes, that's the usual response and I really don't understand why. Kevyn Aucoin (RIP), Dick Page, Pat McGrath, Troy Jensen, Scott Barnes, all phenomenal artists and all recognizable names. However even…Continue

"What worth has beauty if it is not seen?" - Italian Proverb
Lately I have been OBSESSED with vivid colors and textures. I want to paint every face I see in vibrant colors and dip them in glitter and diamonds. I have visions of Fuchsia cheeks, Chartreuse eyelids, Yellow lips. Yes, I said yellow lips... Don't knock it til you've tried it.
Like I said, I'm a little obsessed with color these days, maybe more than a little…Continue

It's my baby!! And it's time for my baby to grow up a little bit. And by grow I mean get bigger and…Continue
Ha! I just wrote a report on re-appearing fashion trends from a past era/decade and todays. I chose harem pants (suprise, suprise) since they hit up the fashion world and it seemed they would never go away! Who would have thought harem pants first appeared on the fashion scene in the early 1920's?
I also selected the 1970's flannelette shirt- celebs seemed to have brought this one back, introducing various cuts and colourways.
Oh yes, on the other side of the world is that also fashionable continent called Australia! Yet in Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria- it doesn't appear to be representing the season SPRING at all! No instead it is a dreary, wet day and i am stuck inside sick with a chest infection! Melbourne is the capital of Black in Australia- and i am the empitany of that! Black makes me feel boring! A little black is okay- but it is rare i venture out of the house in more than one…Continue

"L'unione fa la forza." ("In union there is strength.")
Maybe you didn't know but "Glamour Whore" aka "LaBella Puppetta" (born "Ignazia") is a very proud product of Italy, well actually Sicily, and I write this post with great pride and joy... I love to see my fellow Italians giving back.
It's Fashion Week in Milan, Italy and yesterday instead of models with hour-glass figures, the models were shaped like Coke bottles. That's because…Continue

"There are two tragedies in life. One is not to get your heart's desire. The other is to get it."
-George Bernard Shaw
Anyone who knows me, knows of my love of the "wifebeater". Beaters are a wardrobe staple for me. Throw on a beater, usually white and usually with a colored bra, some fab accessories, heels and a great coat/jacket and you have the "glamour Whore" uniform. And it's sexy. And glamorous if you wear it right. I also have made…Continue

"A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men." -Roald Dahl
Tim Burton (whom I adore) has done it again... The famed director of "Edward Scissorhands", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", "Beetlejuice", "Sleepy Hollow" and the upcoming fantastical "Alice in Wonderland" has collaborated with fashion photographer Tim Walker for Harper's Bazaar October 09 issue and created PURE BRILLIANCE.
A couple weeks ago we showed our spring 10 collection in a secret garden off of St Mark's Place. Space was limited in our little courtyard, but we wished we could have hosted you all. Check out these videos if you'd like to know what went down;… Continue

Styled by Vogue Paris Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld, Diane goes from fresh-faced blond to a black lace clad minx...and it's ultra fabulous. I am sooooo loving this lace trend.

Shot by esteemed photography duo Inez and Vinoodh and styled by Emmanuelle Alt, Kate looks amazing. I'm not sure who was responsible for hair and makeup but they did a fabulous job...
