Quotes on Style

"Style" is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style.
John Fairchild

The difference between style and fashion is quality.
Giorgio Armani

Fashions fade, style is eternal.
Yves Saint Laurent

Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.
Gore Vidal

"A style does not go out of style as long as it adapts itself to its period."
Coco Chanel

"Fashion can be bought. Style one must possess."
Edna W. Chase

Olivia Palermo from "The Sartorialist"

Apart from the clutch and the necklace I like the look that she pulled with so much confidence. I guess at the end confidence is all that matters.

Alice in Wonderland - March 2010

Cant wait to see Alice in Wonderland directed by Tim Burton. Mia Wasikowska will play the role of Alice, alongside Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen, and Anne Hathaway as The White Queen. The Alice in Wonderland story is a classic and has been told many times but I have a feeling that Burton will work his magic and we’ll see something we’ve never seen before.

'The September Issue' Trailer

"The September Issue" film by R.J.Cutler

"Vogue" is one of the things in life that makes me happy, that I really enjoy with a cup of tea every Friday morning (actually afternoon since I usually wake up late on fridays). I read it religiously every month and I think I managed to make quite a good collection of Vogue for the past couple of years. "The September Issue" is a film that tells the story of Vogue's editor in chief Anna Wintour and her team of editors one of which is Grace Coddington, creating the September Issue and ruling the fashion world. So you can imagine my excitement and anticipation for this movie. I did read somewhere in the internet that it will be in "Virgin" Dubai in October Month. I have tried to call the store, after my 1000 unanswered calls they finally answered and they dont have it in the system meaning they haven't received it yet or something. (I love the store and the service in the Virgin but they gotta do something with customer care or over the phone service, it is impossible to reach them, they never answer, your only choice is to visit the store if you wanna find out about something, frustrating!). I have no choice but to wait until it arrives in Dubai! :(

"The film captures the unique passion & delicate relationships that make each page of "Vogue" a reality." by Women's Wear Daily
"This is the real "Devil Wears Prada" by Vanit Fair.
"A hurricane of fabulousness!" by New York Magazine

Quote by Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel, "A girl should be two things- classy and fabulous."

Christian Louboutin @ Saks Fifth Avenue = So cute

The Duke of Vendura

The Duke of Verdura is the most talented jeweler of the 20th century and it all started when Coco Chanel invited Verdura to design jewellery. At Chanel, Verdura’s most notable creation was a Maltese-cross bracelet.
Chanel’s point of view was that a woman should wear both fake and real gems. “I find it disgraceful to walk around with millions around your neck just because you are rich, “ she said, “The point of jewellery isn’t to make a woman look rich but to adorn her; not the same thing.”
For Landrigan, who bought the Verdura business in 1985, seven years after the designer's death, one of the most appealing facets of his work was its rejection of mass-production and commercialism.
"Verdura was not interested in publicity," he said. "Unlike most jewelers he had no commercial bent and created very personal jewelry for his friends, a list of whom read like a 'Who's Who' of the Western world.
"Most of his work was not done to impress people, but rather to flatter the woman wearing it. He made brooches in the form of pomegranates, eggplants, onions, pinecones, camels, mice, and all manner of things not associated with jewelry."
"The great thing about Verdura is that there simply is less of it, which should, officially, make it more valuable," she said. "Owning a piece of Verdura is a little like having an elite club membership: Once bitten, forever smitten." "You're not just buying stones, you're buying taste."
His designs were worn by iconic women of taste from the 30s to the 70s including Joan Crawford; Princess Diana; Doris Duke; Katharine Hepburn; Nan Kempner and Greta Garbo.
