First off, just seen this video:
The video features Marion Cotillard singing (with Franz Ferdinand) 'Eyes Of Mars', which is a new music video for Dior's Lady Rouge campaign. I'm a big fan of Marion Cotillard as I think shes a classically beautiful French woman, I really wish I had her mouth! It's so pretty! I think Dior and Cotillard work well together and she always looks beautiful in their campaigns, in particular my favourite photo below:
In other news, it was the last of my dress making classes last night *tear* and my dress is still not finished! However I am signed up for the next set of classes that starts later in the month, so its all good. I never really realised how hard making clothes to a good standard was. Not saying that I thought it was going to be a breeze, but I definately have a new found respect for designers! I'm really happy with the way that my dress it taking shap though, I've finished the front half and am half way through sewing together the back and the full skirt sections, I'm just praying it fits!! I'm thinking of making a waistcoat for the next set of classes, so hopefully that will turn out well! I'm really enjoying it, and hopefully will make a good few pieces of clothing over the coming months so I can develop my skills further. I'll get some photos up of the dress as soon as its finished.
Lastly, I found the most awesome necklace and holder from Tithi Kutchamuch which can be found here http://www.tithi.info/new/main.htm under 'Companion Parrot'. I love taxidermy and taxidermy accessories and to me this is reminiscent of that practise. The necklace itself is a long chain with the parrots head, heart, stomach and intestines featured as charms. When not being worn the necklace can be kept in the parrots body, just like the real organs!! But its very cute nonetheless!
