Behind every iconic badass is an equally suave woman. Ali McGraw and Steve McQueen; defiance.

Dennis Hopper; actor, painter, poet, photographer, etc, etc… May the talented jack of all trades and women rest in peace after an iconic career.

Obsessives…

Speaking of gentlemen, a video of one of my favorites, Sir Paul Smith,  reveals that he is shockingly more of an obsessive hoarder collector than I.

GQ Top 50

Absolutely superb choices and photos by GQ  for their feature on the 50 Most Stylish Leading Men of the Past Half Century. Handsome men, Handsome taste.

“How to make a button” by Miranda July

Eyes of Laura Mars

In Cinema, Focus On:, Smashin Fashion, Views, Works of Art on 02/04/2010 at 22:19

The 1978 thriller starring (a very 70’s sexy) Faye Dunaway as a fashion photographer who vividly visualizes a murder during her stylishly violent photo shoots. Indulgence.

Spring 2010 Lookbooks

In Cinema, Focus On:, Menswear, Musica, Smashin Fashion, Views, Works of Art on 01/28/2010 at 19:31

Ah yes, my favorite movies, the Video Look Books for Spring.  The format allows far more freedom than print, as each collection’s aesthetic, music, mood, words, and characters are seamlessly portrayed in short films.  Steven Alan enjoys the pleasures and boredom experienced in a couple’s summer abode, Temperley London draws us into a fabulous fantasy circus, Yves Saint Laurent channels French boys and Patti Smith…

(Note: I have included Acne’s 2009 Underwear video, but, well, who doesn’t want to look at models jumping around in underwear?)

Experience some of the season’s magic below (more to come !!):
