Below are my favorite dresses from the Spring 2014 ready-to-wear collections at Paris Fashion Week.
Can I just say right off the back that I was not a fan of the Alexander McQueen collection for spring 2014. Its like Sarah Burton is charged with driving forward one of the most iconic fashion FORWARD houses to ever emerge after Thierry Mugler, only to have her fall asleep on the wheel.
After I read the review Tim Blanks posted on Style.Com, I must confess that even though I am not a fashion insider, I was surprised that he and I had a difference of opinion on this. He called it a “magical collection” and went on to describe the details “ostrich-feathered Zulus; the intricate beaded outfits of tribal priestesses; the kilt-over-trouser combo of the Celtic warrior; the graphic geometries of Mondrian, or Picasso in his African period.…” he finally summed it up by concluding, “the show notes referenced “found objects,” which made it easy to imagine these clothes becoming the subject of cargo cults in the distant future, some tribe-to-come wondering why—and, maybe more important, how.”
Difference in opinion because I choose to call it like I see it, which is basically
As for the designer, this is what Sarah Burton had to say about the collection, “I didn’t want it to feel too referenced to a period or a theme,”
Anyway, below is one more image of some models in Yves Saint Laurent from the 1967 collection.
secretprojectrevolution is a 17-minute film directed by Madonna and Steven Klein. The film launches Art For Freedom, a global initiative to further freedom of expression.
Personally, I thought that it was a reemergence of The Madonna that had inspired and empowered a generation. I feel like for die hard Madonna fans like myself, we have been waiting for her to do something really special, we needed to believe!!
They were powerful words written and narrated by Madonna and I must confess that there was a split second where I could feel moisture in my eyes.
What do you think?
Art For Freedom encourages the world to express their personal meaning of freedom and revolution in the form of video, music, poetry, and photography. Join the revolution by uploading original artwork to ArtForFreedom.com or tagging original posts #artforfreedom.
Last night was the official opining party for Mulberry in downtown Toronto. A very chic store taking up prime real estate on the mink mile.
I may be albino, but y’all pale in comparison.

I just stumbled upon this band/group from Sweden called Icona Pop. This is where I keep my fingers crossed and hope they haven’t been out for many years and that I am the last to hear about them.
The All Night music video plays out like a mini documentary chronicling a night out with some of the most legendary children of the NYC Ballroom scene, and in it, Icona Pop is part of the scene as a band in the Ballroom. Cute concept.
Anyway, check it out!
What a freaking scorching hot party it was at Brassaii last night, Toronto got a taste of sexual shock and awe, it was graphic, uncensored and beautiful, not to mention cringe worthy. The party was hosted by Kleen Media. This was all thanks to The Box, that insane celeb filled must see show in Manhattan.
For instance, there was lots of singing and dancing in various forms of undress BUT, I also saw a naked bondage show, 2 naked girls drinking champagne and snorting something, I assumed they were pretending till they run out of champagne and proceeded to pee in each others champagne flutes and guzzle bottoms up! THEN, there was an abortion. No seriously, she came up on stage holding a shot glass filled with a mysterious red fluid…same mysterious fluid dripping from between her legs. She pulled up her dress, got on the chair, put a plate underneath her and right in front of everyone, she pushed out a fetus from her vagina and proceeded to eat it. Yes, that actually happened.
Well, since I OBVIOUSLY could not take pictures of all that because where would I even post them? I took this video of the more “tame” part of the show. Be sure to watch it on Full Screen.
I have been to The Box in 2010 and I can assure you, the Toronto installment was pretty tame.
Today I went to the world premier of the movie, The Art Of The Steal, It had some well known actors including Kurt Russel who we have not seen in a while.
I would describe it as a comedic heist movie. Check out the trailer.
Personally, I thought it was just OK. However, there were a lot of laughs in the audience which just means that even though its not my cup of tea, it could be yours!
