ok, the title of the post is a bit lame,
but for fun,
and because you never know how people google your blog,
these are the people i've decided i want to
1) go to dinner at lucques with . . .
2) get in front of my lens, naked, with one piece of vintage dries . . .
3) learn from.
first up,
brian kenny,
an artist and illustrator,
whose subversive, sexual, agressive art
makes me sit up and smile every time.

his partner, slava mogutin, is a personal fave on the photography front,
but finding brian's blog and art was like stumbling into someone's
head . . . and i liked the inner space.
check him out here:
next would have to be everyone's favorite "fat" model,
lara stone.
she's gotten tons of press because she's a great model,
but she's also not stick thin.
sadly, get this,
she's a size FOUR, and thinks she's too heavy.
i want to meet her,
photograph her,
and feed her some of tim's turducken as a celebration.
she's love it.

come on,
girl is gorgeous.
leigh lezark,
of the band the misshapes.
not for the music.
but for the fact that she is a TRUE fashion hanger-on.
she's everywhere,
for no reason.
but she always looks amazing.
love it, want it, need it.

only in fashion can you be famous,
and rightly so,
for simply knowing how to have style.
it's so NOT . . . american.
and i mean this one,
i want to meet nicola formichetti.
he's a stylist.
he's perhaps THE stylist.
and he does this kind of thing:

i just want to hear the stories.
vanessa traina.
because her mother is danielle steele.
because that doesn't doom her to a life of romance novels.
it seems to doom her to a life of going to fashion shows and looking like this doing it:

this was the photo heard round the world at the paris shows,
when tommy ton (the blogger of jack n jil) posted this as his ultimate fashion moment,
wearing the givenchy crown to the show.
seriously, making me sweat a little with envy.
cause you know how i feel about crowns.
and eye make up.
and the name vanessa.
no list would be right,
or fair and balanced, to quote fox news,
without anna dello russo.
the fashion director of japanese vogue
(vogue nippon)
she is a fucking fashion maelstrom.
she is a fashion time space continuum.
she wears every day what women dream of wearing their whole lives.

these were her DAY LOOKS.
i want to pet her.
softly, like a little squirrel.
then i want to raid her closet for a crown.
she HAS to have one in there somewhere,
she brought THREE pairs of those stupid cherry ysl platforms for fashion week,
and those things are collectors items.
got a little light headed there.
and of course,
this man.
i gotta know this man someday.
he seems too smart for all of it,
and too much in love with it at the same time.
and i love that.

and if you don't know who that is,
well my pretties,
you haven't been doing your homework now, have you?
