I just arrived at home finding my daily Standard on my bed and a cup of hot tea waiting for me to be a mental support for writing this blog entry. It is Wednesday the 4th and today the first Austrian Forever 21 Shop opened its doors for VIP’s and press people to look at the variety of clothes, the interior concept and the floating champaign…
As my blog turns out to be my most important working source, I actually had to be there – not just to provide you, my dear readers with the newest and hottest fashion gossip, but also to give you an insight into the partly scandalous life of Vienna’s wannabe top society. Therefore, I attended the opening with a beautiful outfit that included a Burberry tie and with a beautiful lady as my +1 – beloved K – meeting stylish blogger colleague MY! In my opinion the whole concept of the actual Label Forever 21 strangely appears as an American version of British fashion empire Topshop who at least had Kate Moss as a leading and top selling campaign model.
The shop itself holds a more than big variety of clothing with three enormously large floors – the only disappointing thing about these superior number of styling proposals was the percental segmentation of menswear and womenswear – I would dare say it was a very unhealthy division of 5% to 95%… not kidding, at all.
But back to basics – if I were a fifteen year old girl with a minimum budget to spend on fashion this store definitely is the perfect cotton candy location to shop. All those flowers and butterflies and pastel colors really kind of freaked me out compared to the lack of quality. Besides the quality, I have to say, that the store looks quite okay – just like an enormous, glittering Disney wonderland full of faked antiques and somewhat beautiful but kitsch furniture.
In the end, the only really creepy and weird thing was finding out that some people my age and your age and even a few years older than you and me seem to be unbelievably infantile and ridiculous. Once this usually beautifully dressed blogger was working as an intern at a magazine and somehow, by a weird mistake and a weird coincidence one party was against the other and oh my fucking great gosh – A saw me at the opening and ran of to hide away from me. Every single time she saw me. Coincidence? I don’t think so! Lack of self-confidence and knowing one was wrong? Definitely!
On the way to my sister’s new place for having a quick coffee and a little chit chat about what is going on in our both lives, I saw something, that made my mood rise at least a little bit. I do not know what it is, but every time I see this ad I have to smile – whether it is Natalie Portman or the fact that it is a Dior campaign for a wonderful perfume called Miss Dior Cherie – it just makes me feel safe and secure every single time I come across it.
Isn’t she the most beautiful woman that walks on this world?! Well, in my mind she is!
Have a wonderful night my dear, beloved readers.
Spotted: R and J in a shop in 22nd district – will there be a reunion of two lost friends or will the battle rise one last time?! R still fitting his outfit for the Vienna Awards, which will take place on Monday 14th – does a little colour make sense in times like these?! What do you do when you are about to meet some enemies at an event like that?! Smile (knowing you are so much better and stronger and wiser and above all damn hot gorgeous!) and just walking straight ahead with a rocking attitude! Adi Weiss again publishing a statement that will have to put him down – and if nothing is going to do something about it then I sure will – no one insults Alexander McQueen after all he has given to the fashion industry! Got it you-who-has-absolutely-no-clue-about-fashion-AT-ALL?!!!
The biggest and coolest news of the day is for sure monsieur John Galliano’s replacement at Dior’s Maison de la Mode fantastique – Riccardo Tisci. Former Creative Director of Givenchy will join the world of Haute Couture in the name of beloved Christian Dior. I am so looking forward to the next collection. Unfortunately beautiful Academy Award Winner Natalie Portman immediately canceled the contract with Dior and their Miss Dior Cherrie Campaign after the ousting of Mr. JG – but I can totally understand that and have to say that it is good to know that some people out there still have some moral concepts.
Natalie Portman’s statement after she heard the Galliano News:
“I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano’s comments that surfaced today. In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful.”
For now, have a beautiful Sunday and enjoy the sun at least a little bit.
P.S. Japan – God save you all. In thoughts we are with you…in minds we can feel you…in hearts we will always be there for you.
Spotted: Someone being stalked by a freaky man who is told to back off a hundred times; R and M watching Black Swan and being totally inspired, fascinated and speechless; C being shocked about someone’s love life and someone waiting for the threat to come to the next round – we are still waiting to see a takedown so bring it on!
I still hold the Black Swan (a film by Darren Aronofsky) cinema program in my hands and wonder one thing – how far do people go to live their dreams and how much will they sacrifice to fight against themselves and to win in order to achieve a certain state of perfection that will satisfy them? Is having success always a battle with oneself?
As I sat there in my comfortable chair in the ‘Gartenbaukino’ with perfectly beautiful M I found myself totally fascinated by the absolutely immaculte costumes, which have been designed and created by fabulous label Rodarte. It was pure perfection what I saw there. A story so beautiful in its narration and so wisely chosen in its protagonists that I was stunned and simply shooked to my core because I found myself in love with Natalie Portman (yeah, yet again) and her true beauty. Her motions are devine and her acting is flawless.
I have decided to read the Catcher in the Rye again – I haven’t taken a look at this book since I was 15 years old and a couple of days I have realized that I might actually could need a little bit J.D. Salinger. Just for the strength, the thoughts and the self-esteem. I think it is quite reasonable in order to solve some fundamental question I have been asking myself since a couple of weeks, but I think I will tell you anyway once I am finished.
That’s all, for now. Oh, and if you see someone without an ego as huge Gucci’s last year’s earnings – that might be me, but do not bother to talk to me I am only thinking about myself. Those who think that, might not get this joke, those who know me understand completely.
P.S. If you feel like dancing then just move your body and express your feelings. Maybe to Tschaikovsky?
