Life Is A Butterfly

  Butterfly show-girls fluttered down the Jean Paul Gaultier catwalk in Paris, as the French designer transformed his haute couture gowns into delicate ethereal creations with silky wings in multicolored hues. The collections effect was both sultry and mystifying. Ms. Von Teese brought electricity with all the intensity of her bright teal ensemble, and we were once again reminded that nobody works a corset like the burlesque star.

The iconic Albanian bombshell in motion!

“The line of her lips forms a childish pout, and at the same time her lips are very kissable…. She turns up her nose at elegant clothes, jewels, girdles, perfumes, makeup, and all artifice. Yet her walk is lascivious and a saint would sell his soul to the devil to watch her dance…

Crushin’ on Christina Ricci.

 It’s Wednesday!Image

” I’m a homicidal maniac. They look just like everybody else”.

Wednesday Addams, Uh-huh! 

I miss Christina Ricci. She never seemed naive, a goody to shoes or sugar coated and she is definitely brilliant and a certified badass since the age of 12. That’s why I love her. Christina Ricci has played an extensive variety of characters, but it’s the dark ones she’s best known for and since it’s Wednesday, it’s truly destiny!  

Looking her best in her signature black color.

 Her dark, romantic style is undeniably breathtaking ,this is definitely one in Zac Posen.
