Fashion Shows You Must See: 10yrs of Dior Couture by John Galliano

In this series of posts i’m going to publish some videos with the best ever fashion shows by wide range od fashion designers – from Yohji Yamamoto to Coco Chanel.

For the first blog entry i decided to have ’10 Years Of Dior Couture’ presented by John Galliano in 2007 (spring collection). Not as Galliano is one of the most impressive and passionately charming young fashion designer now, but for incredible quality of his dresses sewing and very noticeable interest in the history of modern fashion and its traditions… Combined with funky, beauty, lovely innovations!

Enjoy!

The first scenсes.

The final scences with Galliano appears to take some more avations.

Top 10 English Words – an Introduction…

Funny Way To Speak Language …

The Question is: could you chat with other people using only top ten words?

I can do it… So, for this extraordinary communication form I ought to choose the following top ten words.

1) ‘OK’ (‘dot’ for every sentence).

2) ‘Definitely’ (use this if you have nothing else to say – it works).

3) ‘Lovely’ (super hit forever).

4) ‘Nice’ (a bit worth then ‘lovely’).

5) Disgusting (comments on politics, food and weather only ! The same one ‘ it’s really boring’! One note – don’t use the word whenever you speak about British weather).

6) I like this (don’t forget to smile, sounds greater in collaboration with ‘it’s lovely’).

7) Funky ( = cute ) about people you like. But don’t use in you speaches about animals – they are better than just ‘funky’ !  The best objects for ‘funky’ – are pretty girls or  your psychotherapists.

8 ) ‘I don’t love politics but vote on every elections’ (only in Britain).

9) I hope so (when you have no ideas about whether you expect to do something or not. Or, have no your own ideas at all).

10) – Good night!..

– It’s better to say ‘Good Morning’ (use when you are going to night club, bar or just going to have some fun)!

Michael Jackson – Superstar ?!

May be it’s a VERY sad irony that approximate/ultimate charity or kindness  in our Modern World tends to look to much odd, suspect, freaky or ugly?

 

We, of course, accepte charity – but no more then 2,5 $ per month as its total amount (I meen 2$ for African children and about 0,5$ for a brithtaken fights against poverty and global warming).

We of course, accepte goodness. But no more than 5 kisses (cheek, i mean, don’t worry!) per month to your old grandparents. No more 2,5 $ dollars, no more 5 kisses, remember this figures, please!

 

May be in our World all kindness, goodness -all of that nice Christmas things that are not on sale every 6th months – all of that tends to seem to much odd and ugly ????? … 

 

I cann’t understand ! why and how!  Michael Jackson, a man who made for charity and peace on Earth much more then the vast majority of people, including many celebs, had been considered by public opinion as a real freak and there was such mocking, humiliating tones in media?

I guess that MJ is a real victim of our disbelieving in existence of good intentions, kindness, goodness! In a smart time belongs to Russian Oligarhs – who rouls the world …

 

I would like to know the answer…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m very sad about the fact that no one said sorry to Michael Jackson. No after the trial process 2005 – with its sacrastic, ugly, brutal press against him. After all the trial fond him complitely innocent. But this trial leads, ultimately, to his death as he was complitly destroied phisically and emotionally.  And no one saide sorry to him in many other cases…  Maybe that is as he was utimately “Bad” ?!

…So we should Heal the world..
 

start working for all mankind..

stop wars and kill POVERTy around the world.

we are the world so let start giving

..love our children..and MAKE a BETTER PLACE for YOU and for ME!!!

Michael Jackson – A Victim ?!

The world just lost a kind soul who happened to be the greatest entertainer the world has ever known……
… Presumption of innocence existed through all the times. But there wasn’t a presumption of innocence to Michael Jackson . Press, majority of people through all of his scandals, investigations his health behavior described him no more no less than just as ‘frick’…
Maybe it was the only result of the fact that for majority of people he was just “Bad” ?????…
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dr. Ralph Underwager, a psihiator since 1953, once said about MJ  “They / press, many people, funs/ made a completely foolish and illogical error.” He noted that Jackson become an easy target because “misconceptions like these have been allowed to parade as fact in an era of hysteria.”

The below declaration (December 1993) was sworn by a 13-year-old California boy Jordan Chandler who sued Jackson for molested him. But what really had happened? No one exept Jakson, Jordan and his father could answer on the question… When I at the first time looked on the boy’s declaration I thought that the final signature is by his father, not by Jordan… The siganture on the declaration incredibly  reminds much more a signature of an old person than of a child… Jordan… Could the prosecution be falsified by Jordan’s father to earn that 20 $ mln ?

Is't Jordan Chandler's - an accuser of Michael Jackson - real signature?

In January 1994, USA Today printed an article confirming that, “photos of Michael Jackson’s genitalia do not match descriptions given by the boy who accused the singer of sexual misconduct.”  What do you think? It seems to turn into a very sad story.

What makes me more upset about this ‘trial’ is the fact that the father of the young boy Jordan, Evan, wanted to release a musical album on the theme of sexual abuse to his sun, Jordan, and only prohibition of the local court did not allow him to do that commercial musical CD record at the end of 1993 and to earn other 20$ mln by exploiting the sexual abused theme…

As much public, funs, press love at the beginning – without any critical thinking – as much they may feel sacrastic or hatefull irony later – without any critical thinking …
A very destructive trial in 2005 with its excessive and biased public attention and total sacrastic disbelive, press jokes and biased  attention destroied Jackson even stronger, also at that times he was far enouph from normal health…
And was found innocent for all 10 counts.

Michael Jackson being acquitted of all charges in his child molestation trial in Santa Maria, CA on June 13, 2005. A jury cleared Jackson of child sex abuse and other charges that could have seen him jailed for more than 18 years. He was found innocent for all 10 counts.

I think about one question:

if Michel Jackson  isn’t guelty in molestation of children who was blaming him for that, if not…

How sad and deceived he could feel as well as children, whome he was trying to help at thier illness, accured him in sexual abused to recieved some more money ?!

And how sad he should feel through all of hisstrange lonely past years…

I Want to Be Her !

Why many 2000 -ies celebs, artists, photographers tend to copy classical style and fashion look of  60-70-ies stars? What is it: is it a kind of honorable  recognation for timeless style and beauty or a kind of plagerialism, lack of  creativity, pretty own style?

In other words, do 60-70-ies stars are modern Icones of style too and seem to be fashionable nowadays?

Model Twiggy (60-ies) is an fashion style Icon. OK, Twiggy, i guess, is a full time Ikon – not only for fashion lovers but for everebody.

I made a brief search throught Twiggy’s picture taken in the end of 60-ies and the begining of 70-ies and  fond a lot of modern “copies”  of her style, glamour, fashion, innocence, beautiful eyes with long drown eyelashes – all that things that establish her as an timeless Ikone.

Also during 60-ies putting advertising on portraits in magazines wasn’t popular. Over times the advertising industry introduce some new trends and photography for fashion magazines have changed. So there are fashion closes ads on “Twiggy”  through 1990 – ies.

In comparison – trendy advertising pictures with Natalia Vodianova – “Twiggy” for Britain Vogue (2009) with closes ads.

What do you think?

Whether “copies” “play” thier role sucessfully and put honorable  recognation for  timeless style – or not – maybe it’s a kind of plagiarism in the XX century & luck of creativity?

Fashion Backstage… Homemade pictures for granchild’s memory or an artistic workshop?

Lets speak about “fashion backstage” – whenever we like it or hate it… OK

It is far more than just pretty show which allows to see how professional make-up artists work, how buyers go around ; i dont like all th estuff for this high price’, make it visiable how leading designers look badly in night pigama getting around just before the runway – with smoked yeas and no sleap, a lot of things to do, correcting every clothes directly on models.

With this, on the contrary, fashion backstage shows become another one way for fashion industry to promote itself or to advertise a runway. It’s a good way to advertise a brand – if to place some video staff on YouTube? For sure !

So, in few words, what is it ‘fashion backstage’ now – as well for journalists, promouters, models, byuers and viewers?

* Fashion advertising

* Fashion workshop

* Usefull classes on make-up and cutting

* Video Art

* Photography Art

* Joke

* Home-made photos or videos for granchild’s photoalboom?

What is it today?
