Starvation Love: Isabeli Fontana

They're just normal girls turned perfect that's all. Everybody who loves fashion can undoubtedly appreciate the flawless way a model struts her sass and exhibits a Galliano gown or Cavalli corset for its public inauguration. They're half the reason Anna Wintour is secretly drooling all over her Prada smock, even though she fakes that after eyeballing hundreds of shows she's so over it. Ladies don't have to be lezbos to love their perfectly chizzled jaws and want to dress them in all the pretty clothes at Bendel's. I also love them because watching skinny bitches brawl for the supermodel crown on all those fierce reality shows is so enjoyable with a large cheese pizza. And I love picking favorites, Like right now Isabeli Fontani is super sleek and versatile and hot, cause burnettes are totally making their comback. Girl's been around for awhile, but so has Cindy Crawford. Bring on the burnettes!

Givenchy's Black Roses

Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy conceived my absolute favorite collection for the fall 08 season. And it's easy to see, since I've been madly in love with Spanish culture since birth. Carrying the bloodline of Givenchy's Parisian Goth aesthetic, Riccardo Tisci has also adapted Latin American Influence of romantic and dark Catholic girls. For another, he uses matador-inspired cropped torreador jackets. Fitted over ruffles, blouses, and trousers, the jackets make an elegant woman look sharp and powerful. The woman is humorless. Black lace dresses flirt with seduction, yet hardly reveal innocent, church-going girls. An ex-collector of crosses and an avid one of gold chains, I love love the masses of gold crosses, they're so political-like when jesus was first sold out to become a fashion statement. Like when Lady Madonna suddenly became Madonna's "Like a Prayer" video. Very rarely would I ever say there is a deeper story behind a whimsical fashion collection, but there is some frustrated rebelliousness that Tisci picked up while abroad. I mean, look at the models, the majority has her hands in her pockets, and under several dark layers of eyeliner, they all look determined and pissed off.

My favorite classic jeans have always been Replay and Diesel denim (both italian, i also love pasta and prada). Now, Diesels, the logical blues aimed at successful living, are catering to successful moving. "83 ways to do nothing" whilst being comfy and super stylish of course. Sold at Adidas. Some key liberties:

#7-take a road trip
#10-pimp your car
#40-send a message in a bottle

*if i had a pair, i would do downhill cartwheels

Ludivine Sagnier: French Intervention

"Every time they ask me too much about nudity or being a sex bomb, I say something about Tinkerbell, in order to wash my sins away."

She's so damn innocently sexy and effervescent in her films, who knew she was almost 30 and with child? Rolling Stone likens her to a young Bardot. She's shed feathers for several films as well as French Playboy. Her perfect blonde locks once had an affair with the color red. In her American langauge debut Swimming Pool, she smokes like a chimney and chain-bangs random men with a pioneering passion, as all the French do. She plays a carefree blonde haunted by heavy familial baggage, a vulnerable role an American actress-say Scarlett Johansson-could never indulge in with such painlessness. But the images of her face splattered over the internet include a preppy ad campaign with her boyfriend for Miu Miu (below) and super adorable pics of her at Paris Fashion Week sitting next to Lilly Allen. If that's not cute, one of Pan's many Tinkerbells admits that her first celebrity crush was Stevie Wonder. Isn't she just lovely?
