Whatever drives you; passion, hate, respect, envy, appreciation or fascination you cannot avoid the iconic name, Carine Roitfeld. A muse, a hero and a role model she in-personifies at once. I reckon that most of you shares my enthusiasm towards the much awaited movie, Mademoiselle C, that is a documentary focused on former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief and fashion stylist Carine Roitfeld – one of the most inspiring, authentic and inevitable woman of our era. Her words are blessed with thoughtfulness and honesty that touches you just like the following ones: ‘Vogue’s one of the biggest titles in the world, and when you get that title, you automatically get a sort of “crown” along with it. Not because of who you are, but because of the title you carry. So when I left Vogue, I gave back my uniform, my crown. But I’m not sad about it! I was there 10 years, and now, if I ever get another crown, it’ll be because of me—not because of where I work. Maybe this crown won’t be as beautiful, as full of diamonds…but I think it’ll be more personal, because I will have done it myself.’ If I would ever have to name an idol, it could only be her!
Was immer uns treibt: Leidenschaft, Hass, Respekt, Neid, Wertschätzung oder Faszination, wir können diesem einen ikonischen Namen nicht entgehen, Carine Roitfeld. (more…)
Are you ready for some pure pleasure, ladies? Teenage idol Robert Pattison for the Dior Homme advert touched down on the 1st of September and it was well worth all the waiting; shot in sexy black and white against a New York backdrop, the short film speaks of proper seduction. The rather edgy video features Led Zeppelin’s beloved tunes ‘Whole Lotta Love’ as the soundtrack and a whole smoking hot flair with co-star French model Camille Rowe, who’s romantically seducing Pattison (or maybe vice versa) through bedrooms, bathrooms and ballrooms. The video was directed by Romain Gavras, showcasing Rob in all his glory, and predicting a rather masculine yet highly attractive scent as the new Dior Homme perfume. Just as the new cool dictates, the moody actor enjoys a drag on a cigarette, hangs out on roofs, passionately kisses ladies because it’s 2013, so let’s play those games cooler than ever. Are you in or our?

While checking out the latest Jil Sander menswear collection from Milan Fashion Week – in which Jil chose to use colour and did it with real precision and charm – started to wonder what and who is today’s male idol, what makes a man/boy charming in the real world versus on the catwalk. From the woman point of view I would say a man is to be man if you know what I mean; masculine, tidy yet slightly stubbly, stylish but not overly dandy. That’s our husband/boyfriend/lover-to-be; but what about the new generation of literally beautiful boys? Hazel eyes, freckles here and there, curly tresses and slender proportions suggesting a bit of untouchability…being a blank beauty so to say is rather in today. But beside the new wave of male models; in fashion, sometimes the reminiscence faces of the old ‘in’ (which was more man-like) walks in and still attracts – it often takes the form of nostalgia but that’s a drag. I guess there is no conclusion of this post nor an answer, it’s a challenge for us to accept, understand and catch up with the latest male in-s; but if you ask me David Gandy is my eternal idol. What do you ladies say?
Während ich die neuste Jil Sander Männerkollektion von der Mailänder Fashion Week betrachtete – in der Jil sich entschied, Farbe zu benutzen und dies mit großer Präzision und Charme tat – fing ich an mich zu fragen, wer und was heute eine Männeridol ist und was einen Mann/Junge in der realen Welt gegenüber dem Catwalk charmant macht.
