Here is the new provocative Diesel Spring Shoe campaign that seems to suggest a seedy foot fetish. The good thing about it is that it features the gorgeous model Jon Kortajenera who doesn't appear to be able to put a foot wrong at the moment. (No pun intended).
Creative Director William Das has decided to address the hype around the images which have caused a bit of a stir:
"There are no messages, themes or commentary to understand. Our objective is to intrigue and provoke a thought."

On WWD.com you can see drawing after drawing of proposed dress designs for Mrs Obama and they are all absolutely gorgeous. Here are a few fashion illustrations from just a handful of the most sought-after designers hoping for a chance to be a part of American History.

On Thursday we were all measured up so that we could have our costumes made to fit. I am extremely excited about this. Most of the time we will be dressed in Siamese traditional dress with gorgeous exotic colours and detailing. But there is also a scene where myself and others have to dress in mid 19th century Western dress. I love that the Siamese women in the film initially think that Western women's bodies are shaped the way their crinoline dresses suggested.

The packaging was gorgeous and I had a bit of a honeymoon period with my phone overlooking the fact that it was difficult to write text messages and a not so great 2 mega pixel camera. Also, I stupidly never used the protective Prada sleeve that came with it so over time the Prada logo has completely scratched off.

I was looking at vintage shoes and couldn't believe it when I came across... white sling back genuine Salvatore Ferragamo shoes in good condition, a perfect fit and at a bargain price. If you look cloesely at the photo below it says on the inner sole 'Saks Fifth Avenue. Salvatore Ferragamo Florence. Made in Italy.'
Here is what the Ferragamo website says about some of his vintage pieces:
"Precious. No, extremely precious.They're not just shoes and bags.They are symbols of style and creativity, icons of the Ferragamo brand, and shoe models created over the Twenties to the Fifties for famously seductive women such as Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Ava Gardner and Marilyn Monroe.
Entirely hand-made and using original constructions, lasts and hides, they are collectors' pieces, the beginning of a limited and truly exclusive series."
I only managed to get a couple of wears out of them as it got a bit too cold. But rest assured I shall get them back out in the Spring time.
