Move aside Prada phone! What Dolce razr? Bye bye iphone! I want a Diorphone!
It looks phenomenal, comes out next month in selected Dior boutiques and I'll go so far to say its a 2-for-1 deal! You get the true sized phone and a mini phone! The mini is there so you don't have to rummage around the black crevasse of a huge leather bag that we are all so fond of (myself included)!
edit: just to clarify, the mini phone is a little thing for you to take calls (and answer calls only, I presume). My guess is that it'll probably be connected via bluetooth with your true phone.

There are, however, slight (or major) concerns- depending on how you look at it. One is the price- I'm reluctant to fork out 3500 euros for a phone. Another is that since this is Dior's first technological product, I have a feeling it will contain bugs, phone lag and its own set of problems. But the colors and the flip design instantly makes me associate it with trendy Japanese flip phones which are to die for! Looks aside, I guess I'll find out- in time- how efficient this Dior darling operates as reviews come out on various websites!

Anyone else with me?

I'm getting sad that the Gossip Girl Season 1 finale is next week! S1 went by in a flash and now I've got to wait until late 2008 before Season 2 comes out! Episode 18 is going to be smashing- a nice big end with a bang!

PS I try and I try to update frequently but it's hard you know. My terrible internet connection is going to be the death of me.

And the best superhero couple award goes to...

Zac Posen and Kate Mara.
What a POW! blue and yellow duo! Zac was definitely the Met Gala's sartorial superhero! His superpower? Brighten and lighten the slightly dull uninspiring event- it was quite disappointing to see half the guests turn up in their regular glamorous red carpet wear.

Costume Institute Gala 2008: Gisele

The theme this year is "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy". This is just a little preview- I couldn't resist posting this! Gisele Bünchen, who I normally don't care for, looks every part the superwoman that she is. In AW08 Versace no less!
One word: FIERCE!

The Copenhagen Experience

Watch and feel the mood and look of the Mads Nørgaard- Copenhagen collection. The Copenhagen Experience is his project that's going to run consectively through three of his collections- starting in SS08. His second short film came out in Feb and because Freja-Beha (as well as male model Eddie Klint and co.) is in it, there's no way I'm not blogging about this.

The SS08 video:

which I didn't like nearly as much as "The Copenhagen Experience #2" for
Nørgaard's AW08 collection, aka the "Paint it Black" collection. His current work is:
about simplicity and elegance - confronted by decadence, trying to give decadence an updated meaning. Paris in the early sixties has been important, so has London - Mary Quant, Courreges and Cardin - Bob Dylan playing electric at London Olympia in 1966 - the optimism - confronted by a touch of spleen, weltschmertz. The tone is slightly thoughtful, and at the same time sexy, shiny and elegantly optimistic.

Maybe because it's smoother (as opposed to the choppy cutting technique used in #1, but that's a matter of personal opinion I suppose) or that the pieces are more noir and black. Is it the fact that there is a stronger story behind #2 or simply because Freja gets more air time?
