Flipping through September French Vogue and came across this satisfyingly gritty ad for Zadig and Voltaire.... Sure Jamie and Alison have great personal style but I think it's mostly in part of the abundant amount of rock and roll cool that oozes from every surface of their beings,Olivier Zahms captured this quality threefold in this campaign!! Definitely blasting "Sonic Boom" on the way home tonight :)
The euro retail giant ZARA is now online! Sadly the consumers in the USofA cannot physically purchase items but at least the people of zara let you know what the store offers currently. The Zara Woman September lookbook is a testament to the minimalist and overall lover of simple,effortless style. I see Celine (spring'10) and Isabel Marant (fall'10) referencing,the red skinny ankle pant and camel coat (my fav look) are not only incredibly chic but a look of the unexpected...the two colors unite in a merriment that ignites the senses! Zara never dissapoints, looks like a trip to New York is in order!
I started having palpatative fits of excitement when I first saw this video, it is beyond inspiring! Her voice is intoxicating and her stage presence is undeniable! I've been trying to garner some inspiration because as of most recently nothing has really resonated with me as far as design is concerned so I figured if inspiration won't come to me, then screw it I'll chase it down, and tackle it! So that explains the current disheveled appearance of my living quarters .....my bedroom floor is littered with art history books, crumpled balls of paper, and half eaten pencils (nerves).... I've also been listening to Chopin,Bellini, and Verde',the archetypal gate keepers of the Romantic period.... New exciting collaboration with a Parisian designer is in the works.....picture this: if Chanel met Valentino had an affair and spawned a half bred Oscar de la Renta/Giorgio Armani Prive' mutant baby then that would be Sandrine's (designer) aesthetic! Can't wait to share the deets with you guys....

I am in love with the fall Proenza Schouler collection....Im already piecing together options from this video for a shoot. The burgundy stained lips, short pleated minis,leather collared blouses, and crisp white shirts revolutionize the "school girl" look for a school girl that would have been in matrix reloaded doing femme fatale like flips and kicking serious ass!

Hello Readers! Some very exciting new projects are happening here at Style Anthem! One exciting venture is a full fledged image consulting firm with me and my team of talented friends: makeup artist(Amanda Sigmon), photographer(Cleopatra Sharpe),hairstylists (Kristin Forte'/Queenet Nwobi) and Chief Stylist (moi) culminating to create a styling "super power" we handle everything from wardrobing the essential everday work wardrobe to special events to styling weddings etc. The previous pictures are our promotional photos we had tons of fun on this shoot, I drew inspiration from many places one being the electrifying Givenchy Haute Couture Spring 2010 show for the makeup. The dramaticism of the look as far as the face was concerned was the perfect balance for the intricate detailing in the clothes, almost alien-like. As far as the "look" was concerned I drew ideas for current trends such as lace and counteracted it with the past, The long sheer nightgown was thrifted and could easily have been a style that would have been worn around the late 1800s, I then paired it with my cabachon encrested necklace (chezelle boutique;Charlotte,NC). The second look was inspired by the bygone era of the burlesque/speak-easy, the bodysuit (thrifted) is velvet which is still going strong this season; the shoes are Oh Deer!, and the thigh highs are Preston and York. I would be delighted to hear feedback from my readers, which pics do you like the most? The one with the most votes will be the forefront of our advertising campaign.
