Muses for YOUses: Coco Rocha

July 30, 2009

Live from my personal Helicon: Coco Rocha seems to have the entire fashion world in the palm of her hand. Designers and editors alike are totally smitten with this charismatic beauty. La canadienne, discovered at an Irish dance competition, immediately captivated the world’s attention with her ruckus-causing sensation at Jean Paul Gaultier‘s F/W ’07 show. Not long after, she graced the (inner) cover of Vogue’s May 2007 issue featuring “The World’s Next Top Models,” shot by photog ingenue Steven Meisel, and, well, the rest is history! Now boasting countless covers in her repertoire and perchance achieving the pinnacle of modeldom with her YSL “Elle” fragrance campaign, not to mention a stint with E! Canada, is there anything this woman can’t do?

One thing’s clear: the world is CUCKOO for COCO!

July 22, 2009

Clickity click for the freshly released “Alice in Wonderland” trailer. Simultaneously bewitching and overtly maniacal…I’m thoroughly intrigued!

Keep an eye out for  Snape and Bellatrix. HP stars, to boot!

Meanwhile, last week a few more cast photos appeared on the Interweb:

Winning Team: Havana Lafitte + tV

July 22, 2009

Havana Lafitte + teenVOGUE may indeed garner my award for most magical and enchanting and brilliant duo ever (post- Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, of course!). Miss Lafitte is, in my humble opinion, the most supreme and inspiring contributing fash editor for tV and hands down pulls together the most impeccably styled looks for the teenybopper mag. But don’t be deceived; far from being juvenile in aesthetic, Havana’s editorials are easily translatable for any age. If you have yet to notice her superb styling, well, open your pretty peepers and soak in the splendor!
