Do You Even Selfie?

Selfies are the internets bastard child but love them or hate them, they are here to stay. With selfie being reportedly incorporated into the dictionary and creating a stir with the pro-selfie lovers and the selfie-haters about it  was the focus of debate which has still not ended and has gone as far as being described as word of the year. Simply put, a selfie is the act of taking a self portrait, generally using a camera phone and holding the camera in weird angles in order to get the shot. Awesome Selfie 01Awesome Selfie 02

From a photography background, I truly don’t believe its a form of art or expression if it is using a smart phone and a filter but then again I am not the world’s biggest fans of selfies but I don’t hate them either – I’m all for anything in moderation. Old school self portraits using intricate lighting techniques and self timers can be passed off in my opinion more as art, expression as they still echo a certain je nes sais qua which an iPhone just can’t bring to the table. Too many iPhone selfies write the word NARCISSIT all over your face when I’m scrolling through my newsfeeds and your face in 100 different angles and expressions really grates my tits! However, with that being said, I have to take my hat off to the creativity of this unknown girl who has put a lot of effort into creating the most unique mirror-smartphone- selfies I’ve come across in a while.

Bridesmaid Bummer

FYI: This post is sort of not safe for work unless if looking at backsides all day is acceptable and/or not really frowned upon. You never know, but just a friendly warning. BUM2

If you’re getting married in the foreseeable future, have you chosen your bridesmaids yet? Be sure to choose wisely, there are a couple considerations to take into account who are your closest female friends who would be willing to help you hold your dress when you need to pee, who will let you be a diva when necessary but who will kick you back into place when you’re being unnecessarily diva-like and most importantly who can drop it like its hot and squats until their bum is rock hard. You may think I’ve lost the plot, but you see if you spend as much time as me on the internet you will see that left, right and centre everyone is sharing this new trend of the bridesmaids (and sometimes the bride) hiking their dresses up for a “fun” shot in a Charlie’s Angels-esque posed photograph.

Half Drag

Leland Bobbé, a New York based photographer has compiled a series of photographs in an on going project called “Half Drag… A Different Kind of Beauty

ADRIANA LEGLAM CRYSTAL DEMURE FIFI DUBOIS HEIDI GLUM HONEY DAVENPORT HONEY LABRONX JORDAN FOX KITTIN WITHAWHIP MADDELYN HATTER MISS FAME PATTAYA PUSSE COUTURE ROXY BROOKS VIVIENNE PINAY

“With this series my intention is to capture both the male and the alter ego female side of these subjects in one image in one image in order to explore the cross over between males and females and to break down the physical barriers that separate them.”

It makes you appreciate the true artists that these Drag Queen’s are. I know some senior makeup artists and I think the makeup skills would quite easily be rivalled of these talented individuals.

Visit Leland Bobbe’s website for more spectacular images!

Golden Gucci Resort 2014 Campaign

Gucci Resort 01

It feels like only a few weeks ago I was browsing through the countless amounts of Fall/Winter 2013 campaigns but time has passed far too quickly this year and bam we are being bombarded left, right and centre with 2014 campaigns!Gucci Resort 02Gucci Resort 03

Gucci has model Andrea Diaconu, who stands out for her poise, for the new Resort 2014 campaigns, the resort campaign is true elegance with golden skin reflective of the beautiful backdrop of the reddish-gold sunset. The pictures have a distinctive feel that they could be quite vintage, but they also bring some modern feeling to them too. I am still not loving slicked back hairstyles, especially with such feminine designs but it seems like they are here to stay for a while. Gucci Resort 04

Everything about the clothing pieces to the pair of gold ankle straps and the metallic clutch in silver translate to luxury and high style, enforcing Gucci is a true Italian brand.

Do you love it too?
