Paint your palette blue and gray

Anyone who knows me, knows that Alexander McQueen is my all time favorite designer. He was beyond gifted, a fashion storyteller who knew how to enchant and engage. From his runway show stylings to the immensely crafted clothing, down to the last accessory detail, it was all soulful unadulterated art...

"In a world where every man and his dog is a designer, Alexander McQueen was the real deal, his talent was supersonic." -Philip Treacy

Spice It Up!

I was browsing Jean Paul Gaultier's Spring 2010 couture collection, which he says was heavily influenced by Mexican and Aztec styling. It was definitely a high fashion interpretation, but it did a fabulous thing- it reminded me of one of my favorite models from years ago, Shana Zadrick, see photo below. Here are a few things from artwork to clothing that inspire me to turn on some Latin heat...
