emma watson: vogue italia 2008

Quick question: could Emma Watson be any more beautiful? This editorial was published in the September 2008 issue of Vogue Italia. I need a pale blue number like the one she’s wearing in the second photo (petite cap and not-so-petite diamonds included). I very much approve of the styling of this editorial... it’d be so much fun to fashion something similar for Matchbook one day ;)


vogue italia is mad for yorkies

I’m loving the September cover of Vogue Italia. How adorable is Miranda Kerr’s yorkie puppy? She named him Frankie… too cute. This makes me miss my little yorkie oh-so-much! Did I tell you that I’m moving back home to Kansas City for a few months? I can’t wait to be reunited with my sidekick. Only three more weeks! Trust—there will be plenty of pictures :)

P.S. – I was so carried away by this Yorkie talk that I forgot to mention the cover! Did you notice that it’s in 3D? The issue includes a pair of 3D glasses, of course. I’m hoping that this trend is short-lived... thoughts?

charlotte casiraghi: champion of eco-friendly design

One of my favorite articles in the September issue of Vogue is a piece written about Charlotte Casiraghi, Grace Kelly’s granddaughter (but of course, you smart women knew that already). The article mentions a recent project that Ms. Casiraghi worked on with Italian artist  Michelangelo Pistoletto and Franca Sozzani, the editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia. In 2009, Mr. Pistoletto and Ms. Sozzani invited 11 young + creative designers from around world to create a look made entirely of sustainable material. The project was intended to encourage designers + fashion houses to create collections with a smaller carbon footprint. Alongside a team of heavy influencers within the Fashion industry, Charlotte Casiraghi created EVER Manifesto, a short magazine to accompany the unveiling of the designer’s looks. EVER Manifesto, now available online in a PDF format, includes photos of the looks (two of which are shown above) and several pieces regarding the current state of sustainable fashion. My favorite article in the magazine? An interview with Franca Sozzani conducted by Ms. Casiraghi herself (can you tell that I like interviews?!). If you have time today, I encourage you to take a peak-- It is truly a great read!
