Grace Coddington

Last night, I took the subway uptown to watch The September Issue with some of my buddies in Lincoln Center. It wasn't the most amazing documentary I've ever seen, but I will say I enjoyed it thoroughly. It had wonderful insight into the making of the most highly regarded fashion magazine. What I found most charming about the film was the tense banter between Ms. Wintour and Grace Coddington. After watching this insightful look into Vogue, I've come to my own personal conclusion that Grace is the true visionary behind Vogue's image. I think that Grace and Anna's polar opposite esthetics combine to create one isolated, unique vision. I fell in love with Grace's artistic perspective in every shoot that she did. Here's one of my favorites:

Project Runway's talented hearthrob

Meet Logan Neitzel, Seattle based fashion designer, my eye candy on Project Runway. Not to mention his obvious talent for creating cool, pretty, and edgier looking designs for women. Here's a video of him in his lofty home in Seattle: After watching this, I think he should become an interior decorator as well! See for yourself.

For your Viewing Pleasure

joseph_gordonlevitt.jpgI just had the pleasure of seeing 500 Days of Summer of featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zoey Deschanel. I know, I'm a but behind, it's been out for a while. Anyway, I thought that it was a lovely and beautiful film. Deschanel stayed true to form in her typical vintage aesthetic. And Gordon-Levitt looked quite dashing in skinny high-water pants set to the backdrop of a great indie-music selection. Here's vintage Gordon-Levitt in a younger phase of life.

Fall trends that excite me!

Loeffler Randall

One of the perks to visiting my family at home, is that I am not involved in the hustle and bustle of the city and therefore able to waste countless hours scouring the internet. I stumbled upon the new Loeffler Randall website. It is delightful as their designs themselves complete with wonderful background music to add to the ambience. Their new fall collection of boots had me wiping the drool off of my mouth. The only thing I could complain about is that I wanted more! Check it out for yourself:

Rachel McAdams

Rachel McAdams is one of those lucky people who looks good with nearly every hair color. She has sported bleach blonde in Mean Girls, a beautiful auburn color in The Notebook, and even pink highlights!! I loved her look today though while she was promoting her new film, The Time Traveler's Wife on the Today Show. Her hair was a lovely hue and styled in a very 40's curled coif that paired well with her fresh, dewy looking makeup. Check it out, and I can't wait to see the film!
