A.Y. NOT DEAD

I just found out about A.Y. Not Dead, an awesome Argentinian label. The fashion is a mix of punk, streetwear and rock & roll. Their latest Spring/Summer 2012 lookbook photographed by Rosana Schoijett is really cool. Aww.. now where is the summer?

Nails DID. Nail art from Bella Sugar blog.

This blog post is a must if you like nail art!
Check it out here

Bella Sugar took 39 different photos of some pretty sweet and graphic nail designs. They add the perfect pop of colour to your outfit! And they’re all pretty basic and easy to do with a steady hand and a few little tools, for polka dots I’ve used the head of a pin and I find it makes the perfect size circle, you can make it small or big, too. Little paint brushes can come in handy for drawing lines, as well as nail art pens work WONDERS.

Get to it, and don’t forget the top coat!

What does fashion mean for you?
Passion and attitude.

I am doing my design job around the world.

Amongst others you have worked for Alexander McQueen – what are your memories of that time and of him?
He is unique.

Why did you decide to create your own label at the end- I mean the competition is enormous and I am sure even if being very talented it is tough, isn´t it?
Fashion is a tough world, but I just love it and love to create my own pretty things.

What or who inspires you?
Anything and anyone.

Who would you like to design something for?
Myself. I have to love my creations first then tell people how beautiful they are.

In 5 years you would like to be?
A fashion designer.

5 things you cannot live without?
Mobile, paper, pen, tissue, money.

Any new years resolutions?
Work harder.

Want to try paper eyelashes? via thegloss.com

paper eyelashes

You are setting yourself up for the worst paper cut in the entire world!

But maybe you absolutely love danger. If you do, we have an exciting new trend for you. Paper eyelashes. Like regular false eyelashes, except made out of paper. According to The Daily Mail:

Inspired by the Chinese art of paper-cutting, these intricate creations come in several designs, each with symbolic meaning.

I imagine if I tried these, I’d spend much of the day blinking symbolically, and meaningfully and desperately, because it’s weird to have paper around your eyeballs, but then, I imagine that’s equally possible if I was just wearing a massive set of false eyelashes. If you want to channel this whole Alice in Wonderland look, they’re available at Paperself beginning around $16.

H&M’s New Lingerie Models Are Computer-Generated — The Cut

7 Dec

via: H&M’s New Lingerie Models Are Computer-Generated — The Cut.

The models fronting H&M’s new holiday lingerie campaign are unreal, literally.Jezebel translated an article from Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet in which H&M press officer Håcan Andersson confirms that their new lingerie-clad bodies are “completely virtual.” For H&M’s website or catalogues, much of the store’s clothing is now shot on mannequins, which are then humanized via photo-editing software — which explains the eerily uniform pose now increasingly commonplace online.

H&M also shot real models for the campaign, but only to superimpose their heads on the standard body form. Aptly, H&M calls them “facial models,” who are apparently aware of their abridged role in the finished catalogue shots. The form, which is also the base used at online styling studio Looklet.com, is then edited some more to sync with differing skin tones, and even for the addition of subtle detail, like a spattering of freckles as seen on the model on the far right above (whom Top Model fans might recognize as cycle 12 alum Fo Porter). Meanwhile, more well-known models like Heather Marks and Cintia Dickerappear to keep their own bodies, since they’re pictured in different poses than the generic stock form.

Håcan Andersson, again quoted in Aftonbladet, argues that H&M’s decision to move its modeling away from actual human bodies isn’t irresponsible. “It’s not about ideals or to show off a perfect body… we are doing this to show off the garments,” he stated. (He notes that H&M treats many of its menswear models the same way.) But if even a model’s real-life frame can’t be trusted to show off H&M’s clothing, it seems odd to tweak the body instead of the garment in question.

Miss Piggy Models Designer Looks In November’s InStyle

The PR campaign for the upcoming Muppets movie is surprisingly fashion-centric. Or, it was surprising until we learned that Miss Piggy plays a Vogue editor. And Zac Posen did her wardrobe. …Then it all made sense.

So, we really should have figured this out by now, because we were pretty confused as to why Opening Ceremony hosted Piggy, Kermit, et al for Fashion’s Night Out. And why O.P.I. collaborated with the little guys on a collection of Muppet-inspired nail polish.

Anyway, next month Piggy will star her own InStyle editorial. She wears Prabal Gurung (above), Jason Wu, Opening Ceremony (ah) and more. Here she is in Wu:
