Kristen Stuart: Girl Crush

I really, really REALLY want this issue of Interview. Kristen Stewart caught my eye in Into The Wild and now she's been catapulted into superstardom thanks to the Twilight films.

It's no bad thing, she's incredibly beautiful and doesn't take any bullshit (check out Dazed and Confused October issue). I can't wait to see her in Adventureland and the new Joan Jett epic; although I'm so not keen on the mullet (please god don't make the mullet 'Springs essential hair cut')

She is perfect for fashion and I think this photoshoot explains itself wordlessly.

No Explanation Needed

The shoes. The detail. The clothes. I'm lost for words, quite literally. McQueen has done it again. I'm already obsessing over shoes which I'll never be able to afford, but, isn't that the point?

"McQueen's message throughout was essentially sunk into the short dress—a steady development of his engineered sea-reptile prints, worked into a nipped-waist, belled-skirt silhouette. The colors—first green and brown, moving to aqua and blue—were exceptionally executed and swagged, and molded across panniered structures. Each dress was a work of computer-generated art crossbred with McQueen's couture-based signature cut." -

Jenny Saville is an artist I love and respect. Her giant-sized paintings address some really contraversial issues and are incredible to look at. Although her images have been nuked by art students the world over, I wanted to share the love with anyone unfamiliar.

These are just a few of my favourite portraits, however, you should check out her other stuff for the monumental scale of her work.

New York, New York

Paloma Faith was always only ever in my peripheral vision. Now she's in my rear-view mirror and she's definitely someone I'm going to keep my eye on.

The British red-head has a completely soulful voice, think Winehouse injected with pop (and minus the drugs), and she has a really dark 50s vibe about her. As always, I'm late on the get-up, but I do love these photos.

(you might recognise 'I Just Wait' from those government ads about drinking, what was it? "You wouldn't start a night like this, so don't end it like this")
