I love when fashion and interior design collide lol...I am noticing some of the chairs before I notice the models. Kate Moss looks amazing slouching in that chair with a jacket, ball cap and gown on. I also love the Frank Lloyd Wright chair.

K.Line said...

Eeek - CC, you have to check out my most recent post. It's all about chairs! And I love the white one with the green floral pattern. So whimsical and beautiful.

Erika said...

LOVE that you featured Alberta Ferretti's Spring 2009 ad campaign. I have been obsessed since the moment I laid eyes on it - j'adore the way it so perfectly captures the air of the 1920's flapper era. Fabulous post, darling! :)

Ahhh, the chair. It is a staple prop. In theater, dance, movies, fashion... haha I guess it helps to give you something to do with your body so you aren't standing around awkwardly. Thanks for sharing more of your divine photos!

Oh-freakin-kay. A) Fashion photography is what I semi-desire to go into. But the Euro-fashion world is rather unhealthy environment from that point-of-view o.O B) this blog is eggcellent in the sense that it saved me the $8.99 of buying Vogue to simply look through the adds. and C) ZOMG TEH ZEBRA CHAAAAIR.

cute blogg.
