Balmain Homme Fall 2011

Freja for Isabel Marant

Vancouver Riots

I was up in Vancouver during the Stanley Cup Finals, during which I got boo'd (loudly) out of a train station (I was rocking my Bruins gear), and got shoved in my hotel lobby by some random guy. Really classy, I know. I was surprised by Vancouver's reaction, I just pegged Canadians for being really nice & peaceful people. Which I think they are. Ish just got crraaaazy. Kind of laughable, really.

Here's a pretty rad 360 look at all the schenanigans.

Lady Gaga - Google Chrome ad

Queen of Social Media x King of the web. Kinda cool how much interaction fans & artists can have have each other in this digital age.

Chamo San: Moleskin sketches

Lovely moleskin sketches by Barcelona-based illustrator Chamo San. I often prefer an artist's sketchbook over any framed or mounted piece of "finished" work one might typically see at a museum or gallery. Sketches just seem more honest and personal, and I like that they're not so polished and showy. They're just effortlessly beautiful. No need for some grandiose display.

Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - US Trailer

FINALLY, the US trailer. Phew, it seems that Hollywood has managed not to butcher the magic of Girl. It looks delightfully badass. Loving Karen O & Trent Reznor's creeptastic rendition of the Immigrant Song. On a side-note, one of the reasons I am rooting for the continued popularity of this book/movie series is because I hope 'Lisbeth' becomes a well-known name. It would be a massive relief if people mistook my name for Lisbeth -- versus Elizabeth, Ellespeth, Elsmeth, Alice, ElseWHAT?!
