Diana Vreeland's Apartment

Diana Vreeland's Garden of Hell as decorated by Billy Baldwin. Diana Vreeland remains one of the few people I truly admire, not only for her superb taste but, for her 'I Don't Give a Hoot Attitude' and her wildly spontaneous risks. Risks which eventually led to her departure from Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. Her Harper's Bazaar column, 'Why Don't You...?' remains a favorite of mine which still runs in the UK edition of Harper's Bazaar. In the last photo (her Blue Bedroom), the scarf was placed onto the coverlet for which she would lay our her shoes and handbag in preparation for the busy day ahead.

Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2010

Chanel Haute Couture S/10 was easily my favorite as to date. I thought the "short-suits" were a fantastic, modern approach to the Classic Chanel skirt-suit. How fantastic was the finale; Baptiste as the "Tin Man"? Baptiste reminded me of my Kindergarten Halloween costume, emphasis on Tin Man! Also, Dior was quite boring,no? I love Galliano, but you always know what to expect; a bombardment of Historical references as apposed to anything Modern.
