Plaid is the preferred fabric of workmen, Catholic school students and hipsters, amd it enjoys such a diverse range of fans for a good reason : It can be dressed up or down and is available in infinite colour combinations.

And while we’re on the topic… Whether they’re wearing plaid to the grocery store or fashion week, celebrities cannot seem to get enough of it either. Let the pro’s show you how to do it.

Rooney Mara poses for Agents Provocateurs: A Look at Vogue’s New Book The Editor’s Eye

Hello darling poutlings

If you are as crazy about the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo actress as I am, you would be thrilled to know that the beautiful lady has gone and posed for Agents Provocateurs: A Look at Vogue’s New Book The Editor’s Eye.

An article dedicated to it in Vogue:

“What makes a great fashion image? A new book, Vogue: The Editor’s Eye, celebrates the work of Vogue’s boundary-pushing fashion editors.

Throughout its 120-year history, Vogue has been creating arresting images intended to make the reader’s eye stop. These are images that evoke desire—for something as real as a dress or a lipstick, or as intangible as a whole new body language, attitude, or paradigm. Some are images of stately, introspective calm; others make the heart leap with an adrenaline charge of energy, reflecting a century of change in fashion, society, and culture.

But who are the thoughtful provocateurs who have collaborated with Vogue’s image-makers to capture the moments you see frozen on these pages? The Editor’s Eye is a tribute to eight of these remarkable women (there have also been a handful of remarkable men) who have guided, educated, and enabled photographers and illustrators to create the visuals that have propelled fashion forward. They reveal not only the evolving history of women’s self-presentation but also the extraordinary arc of their journey from the end of the nineteenth century to the beginning of the twenty-first—the roiling ocean of emancipation, liberation, and empowerment, changes reflected in the lives of the women whose work is gathered here.”

Among these “remarkable people” are Rooney, Twiggie,  Baby Jane Holzer, Edie Sedgwick, Marisa Berenson, Barbra Streysand and Cher.

Have a lovely weekend Poutlings

Weekend Movie Crush: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Spoiler Alert)

Hey Pouters,

So have any of you seen the movie that everybody’s been talking about?

Well, if you haven’t you should get your bum into gear and go see it this weekend! Unlike some of my friends, I actually sat through the book (ask anyone who’s read it, the first couple of chapters are torturous) and in the end I was so happy I did. The book was full of twists and turns and nail-biting moments and the movie was no exception!

Rooney Mara portrayed Lisbeth Salander like nobody’s business and Daniel Craig did quite an awesome job at portraying Mikael Blomkvist.

The story starts off with Mikael – a journo, who’s been in trouble with the law for writing things about some famous dude but having no evidence to back up his claims – who get approached by some other old rich man who wants him to write book about his family. When Mikael gets there though, the old man doesn’t just want him to write a book about his family, but to solve the mystery of Harriet Vanger. Harriet was a 16-year-old girl who was kidnapped by someone in her family and (possibly) killed in the 60’s. Mikael gets promised the first rich dude’s (the one who got him in trouble with the law in the first place) head on a plate by old man Vanger if he can solve the mystery.

Following so far? Good.

Anyway when Mikael is stumped about something, he gets Lisbeth to help him. Lisbeth is a sort of  autistic goth girl who is actually really, really clever and can hack into President Obama’s porno files if she really felt like it. She helps him with the case and they eventually they solve the mystery together.

If you ask me, it’s the best movie of the year and the year has only just begun! Anyway the acting is brilliant, the cast is awesome and the scene where Lisbeth attacks her guardian after he rapes her is pure epicness and so much of girl power, it’s insane!

Go watch it Pouters – if you like a really really good movie!

P.s I never saw the Swedish version so I can’t compare.

Peace and Love xoxox
