Anja Rubik - Vogue Australia April 2011

Polish model Anja Rubik covers the April issue of Vogue Australia. This furthers Vogue Australia's model cover approach, which I'm still very all for.

Rubik's cover image is interesting, with a wide leg stance and a suggestive hand over her mouth, I wouldn't say its the best.

The issue features the Australian androgynous model Andrej Pejic and his 'Gender Bending' take on fashion. I'm just going to have to get myself a copy.

Amanda Seyfried lands another cover, this time she is on the April cover of Marie Claire UK.

Continuing the promotion for her upcoming film Red Riding Hood, Seyfried is looking tres intense on the cover in a light blue tweed mini dress.

From the looks for Seyfried's cover video, her spread is going to look rustic, a somewhat ugly beautiful look.

Top Model is back. I am an avid follower of the series, and today finally cycle 16 aired. Following on from cycle 15's new 'High Fashion' structure 14 girls were put into a tough competition walking in Alexander Wang and Low Luv by Erin Wasson. 

I've gotta say though, come of the girls are very doppelgangery. For instance Hannah reminds me of my favourite Analeigh from cycle 11 and Dalya looks like Simone from cycle 14.

Anywho I've picked my favourite photos from this weeks shoot below. As for possible winners I love Hannah, Brittani, Mikaela, Ondrei, Mollie and Dalya

This week I planned to get my life in order; to settle in and get ready for the year ahead. 

A bit late, but heck I have been overseas...

After six months I finally got to hang out with my best friends Krystal and Yan, one of those friendship where you can simply pick up where you left off and everything is peachy. I spent my single Valentine's Day with them enjoying a fine and well cheap $4 pizza, a classic favourite of mine. 
I also spent more time with Krystal taking tons of photos for the blog. It's a lot more fun taking photos with a friend, though taking photos on a hot summers afternoon wasn't too comfortable ahaha. Stay tuned for the photos 

I saw Natalie Portman's
No Strings Attached, it was pretty good. I'm a sucker for Portman movies I've found. And it was great was to escape the summer heat.

Style Diary - Quilted Love

One thing I have realized when unpacking was that I have a lot more winter/cooler weather clothing. As it being summer and all its mildly frustrating that I can't wear any of these pretty pieces. I got this quilted shoulder sweater from Topman in Malaysia, and these really cool pair of black trousers from H&M when I was in Paris. 

I particularly love the pants as they have really deep exaggerated pockets which work well with the skinny leg of the pant. Love love love

So... I've been officially back home for over a week. 
Whether I'm fully accustomed to being here is another story. 
All in all it is a good to be home.

Unpacking was a bitch. Going to put that out there bluntly, but then again packing was a bitch too ahaha. Mainly just because I've got so much clothes and the like already, and making space for them when you really don't have much space tends to create a problem. Not that I would ever sacrifice any of my clothes as they are my pretties and I will love them forever.. or something like that. 

It was my birthday last weekend. Turned the big 20, which for me was a pretty big thing entering adulthood number territory. Being someone who doesn't really celebrate his birthday I just hung around with the family and went out to dinner with one of my best friends Krystal and watched Black Swan for the fifth time. It's a good movie, slightly obsessed I know... I did get myself a present... well I got it in London and I'm justifying the purchase as a birthday gift. I got myself an Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf, on my wishlist I know so I'm a very happy and I love love love it!

Happiness -
My key word for the year. I find that with each year I tend to set resolutions like many people around the world, though I think this year I've decided to simply have words. At the moment the main one is Happiness and then with that I'm thinking Ambition as well. I find that in life, what really is it without happiness? That at the end of the day if you aren't happy or on your way to it what are you doing? So in light of this Happiness and the pursuit of it along with the ambition to succeed and furthermore be happy is what I aim for this year.

Kim Kardashian - Harper's Bazaar USA March 2011 Spread

As promised here is Kim Kardashian's spread for Harper's Bazaar March issue for 2011, shot by Terry Richardson.

The spread is Egyptian themed, with Kardashian placed in an Egyptian palace setting with a short hairdo wearing luscious gold clothing and jewelry. 

Not going to lie, I was expecting something better. Take for instance Kardashian's W Magazine spread was of her nude and she is more interesting (and not because she was naked). I loved her spread with Justin Bieber in Harper's a few months back.. but this... not much love..

See Kim Kardashian's full spread after the jump... 


Mila Kunis - W Magazine March 2011

Dressed in black feathers, Mila Kunis covers the March issue of W Magazine.

Looking tres intense, I love love love her big cat like eyes. Her spread below the jump has her in a lace Marchesa jumpsuit which Leighton Meester wore on one of my looks of the week. So pretty.

Kunis stars in the upcoming comedy Friends with Benefits opposite Justin Timberlake. Ironic that her Black Swan co-star Natalie Portman just released her movie No Strings Attached... same story lines? I'm interested to see which one is better.

Reality Star, Entrepreneur, Model and heck everything else under the sun Kim Kardashian covers the March issues of Harper's Bazaar USA.

As much as I love Kardashian, I hate Harper's USA covers and unfortunately this cover doesn't rectify this hate. I don't get how they can't make great covers, it isn't like the cover models aren't beautiful. 

Kardashian features in an Egyptian styled spread by Terry Richardson. Shots soon to come.
