Happy new year to you guys. Over my long, actually, very long break, I went and saw The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It was certainly worth my $9.50 and if you’ve seen it you’ll understand what I mean when I say it affected me long after I left the theater. Sheesh. For those unfamiliar, the story is all about a journalist and a hacker/investigator who uncover a grizzly history of serial killings and seek revenge upon a .01 percenter. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend it and if you haven’t read it you probably should. While watching it, I thought Lisbeth would make a great character post and many people have requested her, so here you go. Of course, in reality (fiction reality?) Lisbeth probably wouldn’t care.
Full image after jump, y’all have fun.
Dominique Francon is the heroine of The Fountainhead and seems to be the only woman in the world made for the protagonist and architect Howard Roark. Likewise, he seems to be the only man for her. You know, it’s funny, both Howard and Dominique have this contempt for people around them. They feel like nobody measures up to their own personal standards of design or of life. Yet somehow, they’re both lovable. Dominique is admirable because she realizes that in life she has nobody to answer to but herself and doesn’t have to worry about how others value or judge her. Once she picks that up, she finds total and utter happiness. She’s right you know, who gives a shit?

1: neil barret: not many surprises here…lots of black lots of leather and asymmetrical zippers galore. will say the dual textures on the pieces were entertaining (see leather above).
2: john varvatos: i’ve come to the decision that john varvatos is great for a man who is starting to get into fashion. the more my taste and style develops, the less inspiring i find mr. varvatos. saddening for he was once one of my favorite designers. some of the silhouettes are awfully feminine as well.
3: bottega veneta: i had true high hopes for bottega this season as one of my new favorites. on the heels of their impressive showing from spring 10 and fall 09 i have to say i feel they have digressed. not overly displeasing but in my humble opinion spring 10 and fall 09 were miles ahead. unfortunate, but i still love them.
4: not pictured: gianfranco ferre: there’s certainly been a change in the wind at ferre. here’s hoping that the change will change back. gone is the sophisticated man of spring 2010 and arrived is a snow trekking crazy person. we’ll see where this goes.
5: not pictured: roberto cavalli: i have no idea why, but i liked this. i would never wear any of the pieces but i enjoyed how he played with plaids and of course, the bomber jackets.
