gratuitous walking/dancing shoe post of the day
1: christian dior spring 2010 shoes: go sox!
just happened to have both of these open in photoshop next to each other and it was like they all wanted to hang out. as i said in my previous post, i loved them both. but when you see them next to each other chanel looks more advanced for sure. it now also looks like some haute couture version of mortal kombat.
1: in the left corner we have the kaisers fighting for chanel haute couture
2: in the right we have the new looks fighting for christian dior haute couture
*anybody could take them all…except chanel iman would bash some skulls.
fair warning: this is likely the most outrageous thing i’ve posted to date.
combing through the couture shows i found a look from givenchy that instantly reminded me of the lovable lullaby-ing jigglypuff…a friendly pokemon. i started browsing in alexis mabille and found another pokemon parallel, then another in chanel, another in dior and another in armani prive. the similarities are pretty striking, enjoy!
1: armani prive and ninetails: the gathers on this dress, the detailing on the neckline and the femininity of it all match up to ninetails pretty well.
2: alexis mabille and dragonair: the seamless blue column, the sheer neck and even the hair are reminiscent of this graceful dragon pokemon.
3: givenchy and jigglypuff: she’s wearing a jigglypuff, i swear to god.
4: chanel and jolteon: the sharp collar, jewel detailing and vibrant nature of this piece are a perfect fit for jolteon (evolved form of eevee when you use a thunder stone, duh)
5: christian dior and articuno: grey breasted bird with long regal tail? can you even tell if i’m talking about the model or the pokemon? it’s especially fitting because articuno is one of the legendary pokemon, just as galliano and dior are legendary.
it’s not so far fetched to think of these light-hearted similarities. have a great day all.*note to pokemon fans: this is limited to the original 151 pokemon because i stopped playing after pokemon sapphire
cleo de merode is the rare exception to tragic beauties. i feel like so many times we hear of phenomenal people, especially exceptional creative types who end up plagued by misfortune. as humans, we’re conditioned to hope for the best and aim for happy endings but so often, we’re denied. the story of cleo de merode is that she was a beautiful girl, daughter of nobles and fantastic dancer. her whole life she was seen as a fashion icon and beacon of glamour, taste and style. aside from her ensnaring beauty she made great strides for the world of ballet and was basically loved by all who knew her. she danced to her early fifties and then retired in a tropical paradise. thank god, happy endings do exist. and speaking of glamorous types, this post is in honor of my good friend cleo, who embodies the spirit of ms. de merode effortlessly. happy birthday cleo.
