Model of the week: Vlada Roslyakova

Vlada Roslyakova is a russian model, she's one of my favorite and in my eyes her pictures can do no wrong. She's also considered to be one of the models to have a baby doll-esque face.

She has worked for Nina Ricci, Moschino Cheap & Chic, Vera Wang Bridal, Burberry Blue Label, Hermès, Miss Sixty, MaxMara, Christian Lacroix, Dolce & Gabbana, Jill Stuart, DKNY, Daks Japan, Karl Lagerfeld, and Lacoste.
It's usual to see her in Fashion Week runways though some time ago she was one of the models that could have missed Milan's Fashion Week due to being underweight, however she stated that she was naturally thin and that she could eat a lot and not gain a pound, whether that's true or not it's for you to discuss.

She's known to be a lovely person and a goof backstage, as well as her trademark walk on the runway.

Curious fact: Her real name's Elena but she changed it to Vlada so she wouldn't be confused with another model.

Photographer of the Month: Irving Penn.

He was a master of photography but sadly he passed away last October, he is remembered through the incredible body of work he left behind.
He is most famous for his feminine chic and glamour photography, but what i like the most about his work is how he uses the black and white concept so perfectly, and also the fact that his work is ethereal and that it is classical.

Milly's song of the week.

Every once in a while i have a week where i just listen to one song over and over and over again.
This week's song is Watcha Say, one of the biggest hits of the moment and i just simply love this song.

If you were wondering the person who sings the "Watcha say" part is the very talented Imogen Heap.

At last!

Lilly and i should be ashamed because we totally abandoned our blog, but we promise to try to keep this updated.

Anyway, about a month or so we had our school play. It was based on Alice in Wonderland and our group was the Cheshire Cat. After months of hard work and endless fights about random things we finally pulled it off and i'm quite proud of the outcome.
If i'm able to get a video i promise i'll post it.

Isn't our costume cute? haha i love it.

And last but not least i absolutely love this song, but i can't help but like the acoustic version just a little more.

xoxo- Milly

Photographer of the month: Dane Shitagi

Hi! Yes, I know, again, I've forgotten about the blog, but let me tell you that while everyone's on vacation, Milly and I got to study. Why? Well, just because our school is different, and our long vacations are on December.

I started dancing ballet just a while ago, and I'm extremely happy. I can't wait 'til is ballet's class day!

So I was searching ballet stuff on Google and after looking a lot of things, I finally saw this amazing website http://www.daneshitagi.com/index.html
It was from Dane Shitagi, who is photographer originally from Honolulu, and I think every picture is very inspiring. This project is called New York Ballerina Project.
You can see the contrast of the grace and poise of the ballerinas, and a city full of lights and traffic, etc.
That's why he's our photographer of the month!

Take a look yourself.

Who is she!?

Oh! Today I went to the mall with a friend and I saw so many cute things in Zara and Naf-Naf... I need to win the lottery so I can buy everything I saw today! Anyway...

Remember her? The one in the yellow dress? On Teen Vogue's February 2008 cover?

Karlie Kloss, Chanel Iman, Ali Michael. Teen Vogue February/08

Of course we all recognize Ali Michael and Chanel Iman, but honestly, I never saw much things about this girl, who happens to be Karlie Kloss, until now that I know who she is!
Come on, she's my age, she's only 16! ... And also she's a ballet dancer.

She signed with NEXT Model Management in January 2008 and she has been in advertisement for Nina Ricci, GAP, among others.
Karlie Kloss has worked with Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Valentino, Versace and, yes Milly, your favorite, Zac Posen.

You also might rembember her because she fell during a Prada fashion show Milan Fashion Week, but I mean, everyone would probably fall with those things!

-Love, Lilly!
