Betsey Johnson: Pink Overload

Woah how pink is this? It matches my squiffy eye today. I think I must have had too much fun over the bank holiday weekend and it's payback. Glasses staying firmly on face all day.

I do like the idea of a bit of pink in a house, couldn't cope with a whole house full. I do love that mustardy yellow against it and those chairs...

Nice day for a goth wedding....!

Yes it might be gothic and grey, you might say perfect for an extra in a Tim Burton film, but I think its fookin brilliant. Katie Shillington, Dazed and Cofused editor chose this custom made Gareth Pugh dress for her wedding, with pink hair to match. (image pinched from Kingdomofstyle)

Girls in the Windows

What a lovely pic I just found here and I like the story that goes with it. Its by a photographer called Ormond Gigli and this is what he has to say about it:

"In 1960, while a construction crew dismantled a row of brownstones right across from my own brownstone studio on East 58th Street, I was inspired to, somehow immortalize those buildings. I had the vision of 43 women in formal dress adorning the windows of the skeletal facade.

We had to work quickly to secure City permissions, arrange for models which included celebrities, the demolition supervisior's wife (third floor, third from left), my own wife (second floor, far right), and also secure the Rolls Royce to be parked on the sidewalk. Careful planning was a necessity as the photography had to be accomplished during the workers' lunch time!

The day before the buildings were razed, the 43 women appeared in their finest attire, went into the buildings, climbed the old stairs, and took their places in the windows. I was set up on my fire escape across the streeet, directing the scene, with bullhorn in hand. Of course I was concerned for the Models' safety, as some were daring enough to pose out on the crumbling sills.

The photography came off as planned. What had seemed to some as too dangerous or difficult to accomplish, became my fantasy fulfilled, and my most memorable self - assigned photograph. It has been an international award winner ever since."
