"Personality and Jewelry Will Conquer Everything"- Zandra Rhodes

I few backs I met  Zandra Rhodes, one of my childhood heroes, at my book signing in London. I told her how my mom first introduced me to her work and how we were always on the look out for her when we would go shopping in San Diego. Last week Zandra invited us over for dinner at her place. We had a splendid time and got some great photos by the beach. When I asked Zandra about her style secrets she exclaimed, "Personality and jewelry will conquer everything." The Advanced Ladies and I wholeheartedly agree!

Like Mother, Like Daughter, Like Son

 I can't go to San Diego and not meet up with one  of my favorite ladies and stars of my book, Ljubica Bogic. I originally met Lubi while she was visiting her daughter, Ivana, in New York City and found out that she lived in my hometown of San Diego. I have since photographed her on almost every trip back to see my family. Lubi and Ivana have a wonderful bond and a shared passion for art and fashion. My mother and grandmother were a huge inspiration on my own style development. They allowed me the freedom to dress up and colorfully express myself at a young age. I asked Lubi to share a little  about how she has influenced her daughter's style. Check out her response below and a photo of my mom and I wearing coordinating colors!



Fashion and design are not my profession, nor a part of my formal education. As a scientist in molecular biology, with a specialization in molecular medicine, my professional life and interest evolve around creative work in the medical/scientific field, which has diverse and numerous limits/constraints. The scientist is a creative explorer; however, there are set rules and even stricter standards that must be followed—by the book. In fashion, as my hobby, it is quite the opposite: I feel fully FREE, and I am never judged by the critics in the field.  Nevertheless, my best critics in fashion are my husband, daughter and my dog….Ha! Ha! Thus, my interest in fashion as an art form allows my creative thinking to materialize into full freedom, or at least the illusion of a full freedom. In my mind there is no existing scale in fashion; at least not to the same extent as in science. How would I define my own style: simplicity, comfort, a clear-cut silhouette, monochromatic, colorful accessories and else!
     
 I guess my style has rubbed off on my daughter. I always supported her own creative thinking, yet I probably did shape her style to some extent.  She grew up into a sophisticated young person with her own unique style…..but fashion still continues to be our special bond that translates into the formation of an additional dimension of our friendship. As we go different ways in style, our fashion interests bond us in a distinctive way. We often exchange fashion opinions, build exceptional creative dialogs, and review the art of fashion. My daughter lives in NYC, and I am in San Diego. Very often she sends me a phone picture of a window display in the city, or a fashion piece worth the attention. Then, we usually build a discussion around our opinions and ideas of a piece. Often, she asks for my advice. If I do not like something, it does not mean that she won’t get it. However, our connection to fashion links us in an interesting way, and broadens our friendship.

Did I influence my daughter’s style? I do not know. Maybe to some extent I did. Most importantly, I encouraged her to develop her own creative style. I am happy that two of us can play and dance through life together at many different levels.As for my Borzoi…..Ha! Ha! I do include her in my most recent fashion expressions. This is my new puppy that I refer to as “my black and white design”………so I try to match her color patterns….. CRAZY? Maybe not, because BORZOI – “They are truly living and breathing works of art” (Joseph B. Thomas).My freedom of expression translates into my fashion style. At present, I take inspiration from the elegant, yet simple markings of my Borzoi. CRAZY? Maybe not, because “Only great minds can afford a simple style” (Stendhal).

Ok, so these glasses were actually a huge Ebay fail. My intentions were to buy some lovely little clear lens glasses and look like the blonde, female version of Jonny Depp (in hindsight this was probably a ridiculous idea anyway). However, things didn't go to plan and these huge monstrosities arrived that pretty much take over my whole face meaning that I actually look like a blonde, female Woody Allen. But true to form, I thought Id wear them anyway and get my £4 worth and also give you guys a giggle in the process. I love this shirt that the guys over at Jovonna London sent me.The collar tips and shoulder detail make what would otherwise be a very girly shirt into my new wardrobe staple. For those that follow me on Twitter you probably will have seen me moaning (alot) about being ill last week, but I now seem to be on the mend and have a pile of amazing things to show you all :) Ive also had my hair scraped back like this for most of the week. I haven't done a post with my crazy barnet in an up do for ages so yeah... this is how I have my hair when I'm feeling lazy.  Anyways, enjoy your Sunday lovelies and dont forget to take a few seconds to vote for me (if you want) in the Cosmo Blog awards.... I will be your best friend forever if you do :) Much love as always xo


And here's my favourite song at the moment... Hope you like.

Lanvin Casts 62-Year-Old Tziporah Salamon in Their Fall 2012 Campaign

Now that Vogue.it has released the full Lanvin campaign, I am excited to reveal the fact that 62 year old Tziporah Salamon is one of the stars of this ground breaking ad. Tziporah is a well known personal stylist, fashion consultant, and performance artist living in New York. A favorite of Bill Cunningham's and one  of the stars of my book and upcoming documentary, this is Tziporah's first appearance in a major fashion ad campaign. I asked Tziporah how it feels to be recognized by a major fashion label and she told me," I am totally honored, jazzed, and thrilled. I am so grateful for this opportunity. In my early 20s I would have never realized that I could do something like this. It wasn't until I was in my 40s that I began to see my beauty. By then I felt that there weren't many opportunities for older models.  How ironic is it that i am having my big break as a model in my 60s? This is a great day!"

Bravo to Lanvin for recognizing advanced beauty in this wonderful campaign!!!


Shocking Red

I met this stunning woman at a Jazz concert with my parents in San Diego. Her shocking red hair and long eyelashes reminded me of a mix between Ilona and Carol Burnett!
