Priestess NYC

Recently I came across this gem of a rising fashion brand. Designer Cody Ross (Dallas-born and known for his kitschy, sometimes provocative designs) studied in several London schools before launching Priestess NYC in late 2007. His unique creations have been worn by celebrities and supermodels alike, including Tyra Banks, Bjork, Danity Kane and Maggie Rizer.

Two of my favourite pieces...

Personally, I'm totally loving this line. What do you all think?

60th Annual Emmy Awards: quick update

And the award(s) for Best Dressed go(es) to...

These three stunning ladies really just couldn't be overlooked, as far as I'm concerned.
January Jones is a newcomer on the fashion scene, with the debut of her critically and publicly acclaimed show Mad Men. If this gown is anything to go by, I'd say we're going to be seeing a lot more from this rising starlet.
Olivia Wilde. Looks. Stunning. Enough said.
This isn't my favourite red carpet colour, on Brooke Shields but she totally works it. It's nice to see a fit, healthy woman like Brooke setting a good example in Hollywood.

Agree? Disagree? Bring on the opinions! Lol.

I know everybody is blogging about NY Fashion Week right now, but that's because it's just so damn fun! Lol. So I just thought, in case anyone was interested, here are my favourite looks so far.

And just in case anyone was interested in what was going on behind the runway, here's some of Jeremy Kost's wonderful polaroid fashion photography.

Best Dressed: MTV VMA's 2008

Wow! As far as fashion is concerned, I was thoroughly impressed with this year's MTV VMA's (but don't even get me started on the very noticeable, yet unexplained shrinking of the venue). Nothing particularly standout, but that's not always a bad thing. Celebs should never be afraid to play it safe, in my opinion. I'm in a hurry so comments are going to have to be left up to the imagination, lol. But I will say one thing: I always believed in Britney. This was definitely her year! If anyone ever needed an award to pick them up out of slump, it was Britney in 2008.

Rihanna. Pink. Audrina Patridge.

Kim Stolz (Kim is here because I love her; her outfit wasn't particularly spectacular). Lauren Conrad. Jordin Sparks (girl's got courage -- gotta love that).

Miley Cyrus. The Ting Tings (and the award for the most hilariously awkward duo goes to...). Katy Perry.

It's Britney, bitch.

What do you all think? Did the shining stars of the VMA's get it right? Or oh-so-wrong?

The OC vs Gossip Girl

Here in Australia, accessibility of the hottest show of the season, Gossip Girl, is as exclusive as it's content. Unfortunately, I'm not one of lucky few who gets to revel in it's fashionable wonders each week, but I have seen my fair share of episodes. Enough to have decided that the list of similarities I can spot between former IT show The OC and Gossip Girl can't stay in my head any longer. I'm pretty sure made a list (as well as every other GG/OC fan on the planet) ages ago, but I found myself disagreeing to certain comparisons - so I made my own.
Everyone is talking about Gossip Girl now that the second season is so close to airing, so what's one more blog, eh? Lol.

Marissa vs Serena
The similarities are pretty obvious, not just personality wise but these two bad-girls sort of look alike too, don't you think? Both are beautiful, stylish, troublesome rich girls who seemingly have it all, but deep down would like nothing more than to escape the lifestyle they were brought up in.

Summer and Taylor vs Blair
Everyone else is comparing Blair to Summer without a second thought, but, what about Taylor? Yes, Blair and Summer are rich, brunette and effortlessly chic, dressed-to-impress 24/7, but Taylor and Blair share similar family situations - pushy, over-bearing mother who pretends to want the best for their daughter but really just gets off on the power. But Blair's mother is way nicer than Taylor's was.

Ryan vs Nate vs...
I figured these four boys had a little similarity circle (or square, rather, lol) thing going on, therefore they're all in comparison with each other. Ryan + Marissa, Nate + Serena; Seth + Summer, Nate + Blair and squeeze Dan + Serena in there somewhere: a complicated love hexagon to boot.

Seth vs Dan
All four of these boys were turned into instant heartthrobs after their shows became IT, and none of their characters buy into the lifestyles that they were born into/brought into.

Julie vs Kirsten vs Lily
Both Julie and Lily can be nasty and downright evil, as well as putting alot of pressure on their daughters; but deep down (in Julie's case: really far down, lol) both are good people - hence the Kirsten link.

Anna vs Vanessa
They're practically the same character, really. Quirky, friends of the outsider guy who's secretly in love with him at one point and try to express this by giving him advice on his love life. But, as far as I know, Vanessa never actually gets with Dan, unlike Anna with Seth.

Sandy vs Rufus
Both are seen as uncool dads, but give some of the best advice on the show. Sandy's wife Kirsten used to date Marissa's dad Jimmy, and Dan's dad Rufus used to date Serena's mum Lily.

Luke vs Chuck
The similarities here seem obvious but when you really get down to it, they're not that similar. At first, Luke is Newport's resident bad-boy (aside from Ryan) as with Chuck in the Upper East Side. But Luke redeems himself once his vulnerable side is shown, but as far as I know, Chuck hasn't fully had his chance at redemption...yet. All Chuck wants is approval, from anyone, this being the deep down motivation for all his wicked ways; but is it the same for Luke?

Got any other similarities or differences to add?
