I couldn´t wait to finish this post to show you all beautiful black & white photos. They´re so special.

I love the atmosphere in black & white pictures, don´t you? They can be a little scary and stylish at the same time… Here´s a great example of that:

Giovanna Mezzogiorno

From: giovannamezzogiorno.com

She´s really got that sexy-scary thing going on. Go Giovanna. Can´t wait for the family photo…I bet that´ll scare the shit out of me. Horrifying. Horror movie-horrifying.

She plays in a great movie (from year 2000), L´ultimo bacio, have you seen it? If not, you really should!

Creepy as hell but cool, Kate Moss takes us to another level in her younger days, actually the prototype:

She is so special, I like the innocense in her face & eyes:

Nowadays she has a whole different sparkle in her eye, more mature:

I really like this photo because of the contrast between the inappropriate way she´s sitting, the girly fabric & clothes & the hard make up:

(…I know the feeling she´s projecting…)

Angelina Jolie, in an extravagant classy role. Speaking of scary, the (beautiful!) dog to the left looks a bit ghost-ish. I´m waiting for it to move -like it shouldn´t be able to….a fabulous shot.

I love the conservative, strong look. Here are some pics that she took for St John knits. The black & white enriches that atmosphere, don´t you think?

Here´s a beautiful silhouette, feminine & busy:

I found a fabulous photo of Julia Roberts that makes me smile. I´m thinking that in the middle of a pose she fell -softly- in to a big cloud of fabric & started laughing…. :

Diane Kruger is such a fresh breeze, here with her autograph:

…AND so very sensual:

Audrey Tatou is so beautiful & looks fragile in this photo:

Strike a fashion pose! …Aerosmith´s singer, Steven Tyler, does that hand move all the time. I wonder if he had something to do with this. Can you imagine him running around behind the scenes -NO! MORE fingers, MOOORE!

Helena Christensen´s luminous eyes are glowing even in black & white:

I also think that Christy Turlington has wonderful, calme bud radiante eyes:

I´ll let this be the only trace of color in this post, because I love the way the forms play in it:

Speaking of form, V magazine presented some cool photos of this kind:

From: shoppingblog.com (Very cool photo! Thanks!)

This is not from the same shoot though. I love the geeky look!! This photo is taken by Karl Lagerfeld:

From: designscene.net

She has SO many good photos, it kills me. Here´s an interesting one. I love how photos can play with your imagination, like is this for real? :

Here´s a really classy, strong (with a soft face) photo of Madonna:

Since we´re on the topic, here´s a photo of her when she was young:

I love looking at old photos & icons, like Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel.

From: plazakvinna.com

Here´s the strong woman behind it all (1883-1971), Gabrielle Bonheur.

From: stylishkidsinriot.com

Even called, Coco Chanel:

From: stylequeenxo.blogspot.com

You should read about her!! Even with a slightly interest, if that´s the case. She´s really an icon, not only to design but also to attitude & new thinking.

Here´s a Christy Turlington photo again, in the Chanel spirit:

Now I have to stop before I loose my color vision… But I´ll surely be back to enrich the variety….

Hope you feel inspired! I do!! …don´t really know why but I really do. LOVE media in all its senses.

I leave you with a little music & more models

Fab hair & fab shoes

Posted in Fashion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 26, 2008 by roxyishere

The hair is really important, not so much when looking at people that usually don´t “care”, it´s not something I think of generally, but you can on the other hand really see when someone´s taking care of his or her hair, on the color, the hairdo and the style. It adds that something extra & makes the rest look really good.

My mom always used (& still does) to say that if the top and the bottom (the head and the shoes) look good, so does the rest. And that is really true! You can get away with a lot of stuff if you have the top & bottom right.

Here are some hairstyles that I love. The color and cut is great…

Tyra Banks

Here´s a really easy & fast way to make a super classy updo! Variate the colors for different occasions! Enjoy!:

Those who have a really classic style should pay more attention to their hair, so that the look won´t become booring.

I really love suede! In dark tones it´s so melodramatic & romantic & in bright colours it´s so naive & romatic. You´ll see some of that a bit down…
