Interview With An Artist: Lorena Garoiu About Art On T-shirts, Fashion & Inspiration

I LOVE the human face, those incredibly interesting features that tell me stories, that have a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’. I adore those. I get inspired by that type of beauty. There’s nothing more magnetic than a face that tells a story. And I cherish it, and the connection that’s born between me as an artist and my model is the most powerful and humbling thing in the world. I give in to that.  – Lorena Garoiu It was probably the warmest and sunniest winter day that Saturday, when my photographer and I pulled up to Lorena’s house a month ago, on a street that looks exactly like those you read about in a book. There she was, smiling her big warm smile, a little bit nervous, greeting us as beautiful as ever, looking very sexy-powerful in her racy new latex pants from Atsuko Kudo…

Is Alicia Vikander The New IT GIRL?

There’s your million dollar for the most stupid Q, which can only be dignified by the equally stupid answer ‘DOH’, followed by the infamous eye-roll at any ignoramus who’s oblivious of the who’s who out there. Oh. I am not sarcastic. Actually I have’t been this dead serious in my life. YES, Alicia Vikander – the 28 year old Swedish actress who’s just won her Oscar for The Danish Girl, and has been in almost all the best films out there this year (U.N.C.L.E., Ex-Machina), who drinks like a man, swears like a sailor, and cooks like a chef (I knew we were sisters), looks like a model but is so relatable at the same time, dates the sexiest man out there (Michael Fassbender), dresses very high-fashion-relaxed on the red carpets, and very model-off duty when off-duty – is the mostest of the most right…

2016 Oscars RED CARPET: Best & Worst Dressed

My oh my! Never thought I’d live the day to see this: 1) Leonardo DiCaprio has finally won his first Oscar for his leading role in The Revenant. Amen to that, and let’s all sing Yay! Okay., and 2) Oscars 2016 probably had the best red carpet ever. That, or I’ve turned into a good fairy and lost my bitchy shtick. Nobody wants a good fairy, right? Of course if Leo hadn’t won that would’ve been massively awkward with all the online and PR Oscar-meets-Leo-in-2016-push-move-down-our-throughts. Yes, I just said that, but hear me out. I LOVE love love love Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio. His my #2 right after my imaginary husband Benicio Del Toro. All his films were fantastic and his performances absolutely incredible, and I would’ve given him an Oscar almost to all or any of his past performances… but The Revenant, while he was as amazing…

TIGHT Clothes: Should We Bring Them Back?

Or better yet, are we ready to stage a tight-clothes-comeback? You might be inclined to assume I’ve just gone plain dumb right now, or am having a poor case of writer’s block, and that’s fine, but I tell you this my gorgeous pretty fashion lovers – not a day goes by on Pintrest, Instagram, or Tumblr that I don’t click and stumble on those #OOTD pics that are, more often than not, made up of… you guessed it: tight clothes. Wow that was a long sentence. So I put one and one together (the other one being Manrepeller’s post on why tight clothes ain’t that bad), and I got two. Yeah. I’m good with math like that. After what feels like centuries of loose baggy clothes, 2 sizes too big, the world is slowly moving towards tinier and tinier sartorial choices. And I am making…

The 7 SINS Of Valentine’s Day

No lusty luscious sin reference here, just pure don’ts and major faux pas on the love-and-sex-celebration day. Not that we need a day to celebrate l’amor. I am one of those women who rarely make a big fuss about Valentine’s Day, but when I do, damn, I try harder than some pretty lingerie and an infectious smile. A lot of people though, are not on the frequency as moi. Actually, most of them. On this very red passionate day the girls & boys are headless chickens drunk on love running around town shopping for the sweetest presents ever to gift themselves later on. It’s great I tell you. It’s beautiful even. Dinner planned at some fancy schmancy restaurant, pretty dress on, pretty knickers, high heels, great perfume, and your date rising to the effort and occasion. But what happens when not everything’s going according to…

What We Can Learn From Stylish Italian Women?

We all love to watch old black and white Italian movies where we can see those amazingly looking women walking down the street looking gorgeous. And we do wish just a little bit to be like them as well, but sometimes we just can’t understand what it takes to look like a real Italian lady. Well, I was lucky! I managed to get a few basic, but truly best fashion tips from real contemporary Italian women who agreed to share their secrets! And of course, bellow you will find them all! Build your outfit around one statement piece Italian women really know how to pull a slightly extravagant but truly fashionable look, and they achieve that by starting their outfit from one statement piece.That can be either the top with tons of ruffles or some bright colored pants which catch the eye and create visual…

5 Looks To Copy From Beyonce’s ‘Formation’ Video

You can’t do a fucking scroll and click these days without accidentally, or not, hitting an opinion or an angle about Beyonce’s new video that just dropped over the weekend – ‘Formation’. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR. The song is amazing, but don’t even get me started on the video, which is by far one of the best she’s ever done. Sartorial language mode on – I truly think Beyonce is slowly growing into a real fashion icon. Yes, hate me all you want, but truth is, when it came down to style she never really owned it you know. She’s always been a walking billboard on the red carpet and not much of who she really was transpired in her off duty style. Her videos always showed her in what always felt as not-really-her-outfits. Until maybe her Partition period and her 2 videos – ‘Jealous’…

How To Wear Baseball Caps Like RIHANNA?

There comes a time in a woman’s life when her hair is a big mess. In my case it’s on a daily basis. I’ve gotten used to wild hair days, lifeless hair days, dull days, you know… anything the opposite of great hair day, which for me is a brief 10 seconds before I hop in the shower. To cure my bad hair days I am seriously considering including baseball hats into my #OOTD looks. Only thing is… I’m not ready to ditch the glam/smart/posh/sophisticated/feminine outfits and only wear sports. Do I have to? After crying, and crying, and then crying some more, for days in a row due to my untameable mane and refusal to ditch my stilettos, I had an epiphany. I really don’t need to change a fucking thing about my #OOTD routine so to speak. I just need to slap a…

2016 Golden Globes RED CARPET: Best & Worst Dressed

Who cares if the holidays are done, you know. Red Carpet season is here ladies and gents, and kicking off 2016 are the Golden Globes with some fab moments. There’s the winners, YAY to them all, there’s Leonardo DiCaprio’s face when Lady Gaga passed by him (priceless), there’s the-capes-are-taking-over-the-world movement happening (almost every single star was wearing some sort of cape dress. whaaaaaaa?!), there’s the overhyped and incredibly stupid duo JLAw and Amy Schumer. Yes, I did just say that, and half of you will probably click away right now. I just have to speak my mind, and I’ve held it for quite a while on these two, hoping they’d drop the bloody crap. They didn’t. It just gets worse. Hence my shocking confession. Moving on. I’ll take a deep breath now, and you’re more than welcome to just throw that info under the rug,…

RETROspection.

‘How do you spend your Saturdays?’ should be the one thought triggering thousands of moments of bliss making up our weekends. IF, of course, there’s no major hangover happening, cause if that’s the case then we’re fucked. Perhaps the question we should address once Friday hits the calendars is ‘If anything were possible, how would you like to spend your Saturday?’ And then… the magic begins. Of course it’s just a game I’m tempting you into playing, but what else have you gotta do? I know. A lot. But just in case your Friday and what follows got a bit of moody vibes all over them, then perhaps we’re more alike than you’d like to admit. I know, I know, nobody wants to be friends with a demented woman with a penchant for obsessions. But we’ll keep it a secret. In a perfect world I’d live up…
