I'm no cine-critic, but it was properly the best movie I've watched this year. Seraphine had that typical French movie allure which I loved, with minimal convos, beautiful melancholic cinematography and brilliant acting/emotional expressions. Yolande Moreau's performance as Madame Seraphine was stellar!
It was funny because I was the only non 60 yo-and-over member of the audience at the cinema (lol!).
Mind you I'm only an art noob, but I constantly fell in love with Seraphine's work, especially learning about how she developed all that talent over the years.
Towards the end of the movie, I couldn't help but ball my eyes out which was extremely EMBARRASSING! Thank god there wasn't much of an audience there to notice all my sobbing (phew!) .
Putting the movie aside, what came to my mind afterwards was how beautiful Seraphine's paintings would look on fabrics, so I decided to do a quick mash-up using Paint (excuse my lack of computer graphics skills, hence my choice of the most primitive painting program which i learnt in year 5). The results are:
Gorgeous no? I can so see Anna Wintour or even Franca Sozzani wearing those dresses!
If you haven't seen Seraphine, or are just desperate for some quality cinematography, I suggest you go see the movie NOW! My lack of art knowledge sure did get a major fix!
I love Sepharine de Senlis!

Just when you thought white cotton was as boring as you could get, Mr Maier turned white canvases into the most beautiful easy airy dresses. I love the karate wrap belt, so chic no?
Every outfit's super wearable, yet really fashion forward at the same time. This collection easily shuts those who keep complaining about lack of creativity during recession. Hello, just because you're not wearing tight studded leather doesn't mean you're not fashionable.
As always the jewelry and accessories are super delish too. The finale dresses kinda did not fit in with the collections, but after such a brillian show, does that really matter? To be honest, I've loved loved loved Tomas's venture into glam gowns the past few seasons. About time starlets switch from the usual asymmetrical, tight corseted, super heavy gowns to something a bit more relaxed, a bit more effortless:
I can already see this collection being in Style.com's top 10 collections.
Now let's all find ourselves some rich Italians who'll pay for our top to toe Bottega outfits, ladies?

Here's a little intro from channel 10 website:
About the Show
GLEE is a one-hour musical comedy series with biting humor that features a soundtrack of hit music from past to present.
The show follows an optimistic high school teacher as he tries to refuel his own passion while reinventing the high school's glee club and challenging a group of outcasts to realize their star potential.
GLEE follows an optimistic high school teacher, WILL SHUESTER as he tries to transform a high school Glee Club and inspire a group of ragtag performers to make it to the biggest competition of them all: Nationals.
McKinley High School's Glee Club used to be at the top of the show choir world, but years later a series of scandals have turned it into a haven for misfits and social outcasts. WILL has offered to take on the Herculean task of restoring the Glee Club to its former glory with the help of fellow teacher EMMA PILLSBURY, but it won’t be easy since the “brightest stars” of the pitch-imperfect club include KURT a nerdy soprano with a flair for the dramatic, MERCEDES, a dynamic diva-in-training who refuses to sing back up; ARTY, a geeky guitarist who attracts more bullies than girls; and TINA, an awkward girl who needs to suppress her stutter before her center stage solo. Will’s only hope lies with two true talents: RACHEL, a perfectionist firecracker who is convinced show choir is her ticket to stardom; and FINN, the popular high school quarterback with movie star looks and a Motown voice who is more worried about his reputation than singing.
Will is determined to do whatever it takes to make Glee great again, even though everyone around him thinks he's nuts. He's out to prove them all wrong – from his tough-as-nails wife TERRI to McKinley's cheerleading coach SUE SYLVESTER to an über-hip world that thinks jazz hands and sequined tuxedos litter the road to infamy rather than pave the way to Hollywood dreams.
GLEE is produced by Ryan Murphy Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk serve as executive producers, and Ian Brennan serves as the co-executive producer."I LOVE!

Flinstones inspired fashion show or Flinstones themed Halloween partay? I'm not so sure:
and WTF IS THIS?
I've always defended Jeremy Scott's tackiness, but this is just too shameful.

This season, Mary followed on with the successful perfume bottle theme she started last winter, though this time she decided to 'organified' the bottle shapes:
How many bottles can you identify?
I love how new silhouettes were added this season too:
If you remember a few posts ago I was literally DYING to see her new collection, and she certainly did not disappoint. I'm so excited London fashion week is here. It really to me is the new Paris fashion week - the young, funky and innovative version!
When will there be such amazing prints for menswear?! *sigh*

Genius no? I love the symmetry, the block colours, and the position of the lid/bottle junction notches to help exxaggerate the waist line:
Even the jewelry looks stunning (or is that part of the dress?) :
For once looking like a perfume bottle isn't all that bad :). Can't wait to see what Mary'll come up with this season.
I love you all!
