Cat Fancy: Paris Vogue & V

Ellen von Unwerth and Terry Richardson have both created fantastic cat-centric editorials for the December issues of V and Paris Vogue, respectively. I'm sorry that I've been a bit tardy in posting these but scanning V is so annoying that I had to procrastinate it for as long as possible. My bad.

David Lynch just got Weirder

Being an avid fashion blog reader, I don’t know how I failed to hear about David Lynch’s quasi-recent perfume ad for Gucci, especially given the hoopla surrounding Sofia Coppola’s Dior ad. This lack of feeling “with it” prompted an hour-long Youtube Lynch-fest which proved to be quite informative. Here are some of my findings:

Gucci by Gucci Racquel! Freja! Blondie!

Clear Blue (pregnancy tests!!!)
I would love to know which genius ad exec suggested this pairing at the staff brainstorm. It was probably followed by, "Lets get Marty for the Quiznos ads."

Clean Up New York PSA
Almost as traumatizing as that Sarah MacLachlan animal abuse PSA. But not quite.

Opium I would like an explanation for the weird Twin Peaks music.

Georgia Coffee Definitive proof that David Lynch (and Kyle MacLachlan) will do anything for a paycheck. I seriously doubt that Special Agent Dale Cooper would get so hot and bothered over coffee that comes in a can.

Book Club: Cucina con Amore by Sophia Loren

I wish that all of my favorite celebrities had their own cookbooks (like maybe Barbeque with Dolly! or Truman Capote's Hors d'oeuvres Spectacular) but thankfully Sophia Loren actually has one: Cucina con Amore, originally published in 1971. I don't cook so I could care less about the recipes but I love the bizarre photos of Ms. Loren with all of my favorite Italian delicacies. Cheese anyone?
