Hmm, haven’t we all seen this 1, 2 or 10 times before?

To balance out all the posts about the fabulous things, this post is the first in the category ” Things that make you go hmm….”.

How many naked and pregnant celebrities does the world have to see?! The first one was truly fabulous and stirred up the opinions of the crowd. The cover of a pregnant Demi Moore was a huge succes to Vanity Fair and the photography was taken by the one and only Anne Leibovitz. Actually I’m a little embarrassed to even mention Anne Leibovitz in a post that is not about the usual fabulous things. But let me stress – I am a huge fan and admirer of Leibovitz and none of the non-fabulous writings in this post, is pinned on her! I will make amends in a later post dedicated to Leibovitz.

Anyways, since then we have seen Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Christina Aguilera, Nia Long – just to mention a few! And latest in line to show of her belly is Jessica Simpson. What happened to creativity and innovative new ideas?! It is beginning to resemble the moon landings! The first one was really exiting and had everybody’s attention.  The second time the audience dropped and the third time even less people saw the landing because it was pretty much the same all over again. After a while NASA stopped to broadcast the moon landings because the people wanted to see progress and they expected to see something new. And I have to say, it is time for the magazines to do as NASA – stop showing the same and the same again and again! We cannot take anymore pictures of women with huge bellies! Please find a new way to display the pregnant women if you are that eager to show pregnancies. We beg you!!!

It’s Danish, it’s fabulous, it’s Designers Remix

Designers Remix Spring 2012

Wow, we just loved Medina’s outfit at the Zulu Awards 2012. A killer dress in yellow (reminding me of my favorite designer Lanvin but this dress is in a much more affordable price range) and a fabulous lilac angora dress from next seasons collection. Designer’s Remix and Charlotte Eksildsen are doing so well and it gets better and better for every season. They might soon take the first place as my favorite high street brand. Check out their website and shop – lots of good offers right now! Go fetch!

Louis Vuitton on rails

Absolutely fabulous ready-to-wear collection by Louis Vuitton , shown in a very creative and  matching setting at the Cour Carré of the Louvre at this years Paris Fashion week. An old steam engine with Louis Vuitton written on the side in golden letters and models in beautiful hats followed by porters carrying travel bags and suit case – can it be anymore fabulous?

The fabulous first lady of the movies goes eco!

Oh she so deserves this 3rd Oscar award and she is without any doubt the greatest and most talented living female actress. Mary Louise Streep has played numerous parts and proved that she can take on any character and make it believable, whether she’d be singing Mamma Mia, resembling the spirited Clara de Valle Trueba, or portraying the character of the infamous Anna Wintour. Wearing Lanvin’s first-ever eco-friendly gown for the 84th Academy Awards, Meryl Streep oozed elegance, format and class in the lavish gold draped gown – no spaghetti arms or toothpick shaped legs was shown off to draw attention here! She looked as the most obvious choice for an Oscar at this annual academy show, which in achievements had nothing spectacular to offer besides the impeccable Meryl Streep.

We adore Meryl Streep and we are only a little sad that the films mentioned mostly in relation to Meryl, are Sophie’s Choice and Kramer vs Kramer, which of course both are fabulous classical movies for which she won her two previous Oscar statuettes. But it would be such a mistake not to recall some of the other spectacular roles and films that she has carried through. So for your next rainy day, enjoy Meryl in some of these fabulous movies. We congratulate the first lady with her 4th Oscar statuette and unlike herself, we believe that she is very likely to be in an Oscar moment again in the years to come!

Fashion for fashion’s sake

So today I’m heading towards Jutland to celebrate my gorgeous friend’s 40 years birthday along with 40 fabulous women. But that is not really what this post is about – more about the weekend on Monday.

No this post is about fashion and a bad observation in the train this morning. Sitting across a woman who is dressed very fashionable in a Montclair winter jacket, russian fur hat and shiny black tights, some very cool boots that I couldn’t recognize brandwise – and on her arm a fabulous Miu Miu handbag. Now here comes the part that makes you go hmmm…! The lady was at least 70+!! Pardon me – I love fashion and I it is great to see that older women has an interest in fashion but come on?! Who wears pleather pants when they are retired and grandparents??? Let me rephrase that, WHO wears pleather pants?!?

My point is fashion is fabulous but dress your age lady – the rest of us has to look at it!!

I actually took a picture of her in the train but I’m to afraid to post it. Dressed like that she’s probably on Facebook, hipstagram and Twitter as well and dating some hardcore bodybuilder… You will have to imagine this one for yourself which probably will be a much more pleasant experience that won’t burn your eyes like it did to mine. However it did make me laugh… So I guess, there is a good flipside to the bad!!

Dress fabulous this weekend!

Northern Women in @CHANEL – Farago exhibition at Designmuseum Denmark

Freja Beha Erichsen, Helena Christensen, Carmen Kass are just some of the women portrayed in the project. The models have been carefully chosen to represent an aestethic flair for fashion but also a desire to convey a sense of humanity. Profits from sales of the book are donated to the organisation Save The Children.

The images allow us to take an exclusive and intimate insight into the significant past and present Haute Couture and Prêt-à-Porter collections created by Karl Lagerfeld for CHANEL as well as the brand’s fine jewelry and beauty creations. The series of images are accompanied by a preface by Karl Lagerfeld in celebration of these Northern heroines.

For the exhibition at Designmuseum Denmark, Northern women in CHANEL has been enriched with a suite of black and white portraits of the participating models, delicate intimate moments captured by the photographers. These photographs will be published in a new  exclusive edition entitled ‘Bare Moments’ and is limited to 100 individually hand numbered copies worldwide, each signed by Peter Farago & Ingela Klemetz Farago. ‘Bare Moments’ comes together with Northern Women in CHANEL as a 2 volume Exclusive Collector’s Edition, in a cloth slipcase.
