One of my favourite perfume ads

Marilyn Monroe

I love her here


I have been asked to do a project for British Vogue collaborating with the fabulous watch brand Jaeger-LeCoultre, the results are now out...

Le Cercle rouge

Another Jean-Pierre Melville MASTERPIECE

Summer is over, again!

I have now been living in England for 18 years and I'm still not quite certain that what we expriance here could be described as summer... anyway this post is merely an excuse to upload a hot image of a girl in a bikini!

Jet Boys fly Jet Boys gone Jet Boy stole my baby

My favorite song at the moment... by the thrusting New York Dolls

Take me up, Take me up, Take me up, Take me up, Take me up, Take me up, Take me up, Take me up

Came back from the Patti Smith concert by the sea, and it has been beyond my sweetest dreams, Patti was breathtaking, her performance of ‘birdland’ was vibrating through her adoring fans hitting us like a lightning of the highest voltage. What a concert! Which was finished off with the divine 'GLORIA'. Oh man the woman is electrifying. Thank you Patti for the best concert I have ever seen.

Sweet dreams are made of this…

Jeanne Moreau

Patti Smith

I went to see the SPECTACULAR Patti Smith on Tuesday night, I have entered the room filled with all of her adoring fans, we were immersing ourselves in her brilliance, warmth & intelligence, hanging on her every word. I mean it is utterly ridiculously gushing but she is so unbelievably extraordinary. I managed to get my copy of 'Just Kids' and my beloved 'Horses' vinyl signed!  I'm not sure if I was really excited about the signature, it was more about the opportunity to stand next to her greatness.
My Patti moment is not quite over as tonight I'm off to Bexhill to watch her perform at the De La Warr Pavilion. I honestly cant wait…

The girl is back in town

Well it has been longer than a while... so a quick update: I've been devouring books, discovering the 70s New York punk scene and fell in love with Patti Smith (who isn't?), I moved to a beautiful new home, got married (the most magical day of my life with all of our beloved family and friends) Went to Brazil on our honeymoon (Incredible!) and now getting excited about the year ahead... 2011 is going to be fabulous x
