Daily Dosage


I am absolutely BANANAS for this month's Vogue Italia cover.
Shot by my forever favorite, Steven Meisel, it feautures up-and-comer Viktoriya Sasonkina looking both strikingly ethereal and classically refined. The lone caption of "Dressing" is pure and very knowing fashion wit, exudeing the old-school elegance of the photo.
I feel like people often forget that dressing is what fashion is primarily "about".
As for the model, a presence like this solidifes her as a new favorite. She booked shows here and there last season, but I immediately wrote her off as a younger, harder-looking version of Stam. I stand corrected, for the ability to command a photo such as that seen above is a talent rare beheld among today's brood of beauties. The editorial inside is also starmaking, I hear.
Vogue US, are you paying attention?
Let's cut this whiteactressinaneveninggown business.

About Me

My photo
Really, I don't want to be that stereotypical gay teenager who blogs about fashion...but I'm out of my head for the whole affair, it simply can't be helped! I'm going to communicate what's on my mind, say/do what you will! I do care about said thoughts, though, I cannot lie. I guess I'm somewhat intelligent, but not very mature. I am, in turns, a minimalist and a maximalist. Sorry about...my...wording... I'm fifteen. I live near Boston. Blah. My interests aren't as insular as they appear! I swear! I do theater, I love photography, and I write. Obviously, I suppose. Thanks for humoring me. No, really.
