J' adore McQ

This  little frock from the 
McQ Autumn Winter 2012 / 2013 show
just swept me away.

Love the 50's silhouette and the contrast between
the military belt and the delicate fabric detail.

Louise Brooks :: Anti Actor

Being remembered for her iconic look more than for being
 a movie star, would have been just fine with Louise Brooks.

She hated Hollywood and didn't believe in acting . . .
just in being yourself, which she found much more challenging.
Spend some time with Louise and documentarian Richard Leacock
in this rare four part interview .  She recalls the decadence of
Berlin  and Paris in the 20's, as well as why she was chosen
to be Lulu in Pandora's Box over Marlene Dietrich. 
(At 25, Miss Dietrich was far too old !)
