By Kiki herself, not some 19 year old "Hottest Newcomer in Hollywood".
So I waited around a while for something to materialise.
Tapped my fingers up and down on the table.
Wrote a list while I waited.
And then it happened.
This delightful yet over so teensy bit dark (or is that the monochrome?) video popped up on Dazed's page.
Directed by Ellen Von Unwerth.
But even better; styled by the fantabulous Leith Clark.
Turns out it was a short for Erin Fetherston (yawwn) back in '06.
Kirsten and The Like-esque patients channel drowsy Louis Vuitton Nurses until they stumble across a magical dressing up box.
Slightly Virgin Suicides reminiscent in terms of childlike sisterhood, except these girls look kind of cherrypopped. Not a verb, but should be.

i know i'm not the only one who occasionally will be lead down a path of lovely links and inspiration when wandering through the micro-universe that is myspace. and for me one of these delightful trails lead to the page of solo act Golden Mallets where these images gave me much enjoyment.

in magazines, she's this glossy, angry woman, a smoker with big boobs, who looks like she is quite capable of beating you up.
but then she hits the runway with her trademark wobbly walk and when she opens her mouth it's a surprise to hear she sounds like a teenage boy.
oh and the ultimate reason to love her?
she got kicked out of school aged 16 and sent away to paris by her mum because she was "trouble"
uhhh, her mum thought paris was a punishment?
wow, i'm so going to post a myspace bulletin about having a house party and see if i get sent to paris for being trouble, too!
girl, i love you!
and i always kind of imagined her as american even though she clearly isn't/

..you'll need to click on the image.
Extra points if you correctly answer the magazine (only font nerds will know!)
Oh, so you need a clue? Well, it's won't be a nice one, because if you get this one wrong..
you'll be sent to the Gallos, Kids!

It has struck me before that COACD often champion this type of girl, snapping poloroids of them goofing about in turtle shaped sunglasses or hiding behind potted plants.
but you want to know a secret? it's her birthday in a couple of months. she'll be 21, but she's actually being "marketed" as a 17 years old. That's how the fashion industry rolls, kids!

Gisele is the cool girl next door. The teenager, who as a child you have a bit of a crush on. Peeking through your keyhole dressed in a pair of plastic princess mules and with a newspaper crown you soak up the details of everything she wears. You wish you had hair like a pony, too and a big furry coat like a blue rabbit.
Gisele is not the Girl Next Door. She's a model pretending to be, but let's go along with the fantasy and have a flick through V Magazine and imagine such imaginary moments and memories.
Sometimes they merge into one.

Oh, I say it fondly, because although most of the rest of the world can't quite see it, we Brits have rather a soft spot for the Beckhams. And I have to give her credit for being such a good sport with that Marc Jacobs advert. And not forgetting, of course, that laid back grey tee and sans-handbag combo from this week; so refreshing in comparrison to the usual rigid uniform.
Posh's latest "venture" is onto the cover of UK Vogue where she has been "Vogue-ified" as Editor in Chief Alexandra "Mrs Business" Shulman put it. Uhh, yes. Shot by Nick Knight and styled by Lucinda Chambers Vogue.co.uk describes her as resembling a "Cecil Beaton Muse".
They've kept her glamour in check with plenty of luxe fabrics and "frosting", but I'm afraid to me (bearing in mind the issue hasn't yet hit the shelves) like another of Vogues interpretations of Glamour. Remember the "Glamour Issue" back in September, which had Sasha P gracing the cover with a similar perm? But who knows, perhaps this time I shall be forced to eat my hat. But I don't think I'll be rushing on the phone to Stephen Jones to help me prepare for this event.
ps, I update the music player with each post, but it doesn't automatically start, so give it a click and let it buffer, if you fancy hearing something new.

I just had this wolf whistle moment, but it wasn't at a gig or on the bus as usual, it was on the net, which really dilutes the great moment that it usuallly creates (is it only my system that creates adrenalin when a perfect outfit rocks down the street? it's like i'm excited on the person's behalf for putting together something so genius.)
but I digress.
For this momentary girl crush was Lena Headey, a brit actor (yes, I had to look her up..) with a not so great resume, but what do I care.
Take a look at this. Well, I fear that I have over-hyped the moment, but really I wanted to put more emphasis on the wolf whistle moment rather than her outfit. Instantly assuming the tee was Urban Outfitters (she just has that look) I found it on the online store (on both sides of the atlantic).
This look is very easy and perfect for a day when you fancy hitting the snooze button on your alarm. Roll out of bed with 20 minutes to leave, skip washing your hair and pull this gear on with a squirt of your fragrance du jour. Of course, the just "got out of bed look" doesn't excuse sleep breath or dribble mouth. Whoa there, don't be forgetting etiquette.

EDIT: I know they were looking uncannily alike during Fashion Week, but I never thought I'd have to go through the shame of confusing the Olsens! I thought it was Ashley, but is it really MK? Place your bets.

Stella McCartney on eco fashion."It makes me feel very reassured and proud that we've been promoting eco-awareness for a long time and people are now responding and understanding what it is we are trying to do. I'm glad people are thinking about these things and that the media is talking about it. But I do wish more designers would join us. Most fashion-company profits are based on leather handbags. It't not a particularly eco-thing and it's not very compassionate."
