MTV Video Awards 2009 outfit

Well , I wanted to work on the Emmy's but I'm having problems with my image providers, so I decided to work on something I've been slacking off for a while, an outfit for the MTV Video Awards . I wanted something fun and sparkly but not too bling bling so I opted for putting the emphasis on the shoes. What do you guys think?

Update (09/23/09)
 I created just the opposite outfit, a sparkly dress paired with high thight boots

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010

Well I've been reading all over the net about how the Burberry's collection was one of the best of the fashion weeks so far and after seeing Emma Watson's dress, I was curious to see what all the fuss was about.
I then had a quick look at the collection and I really like it. Burberry are mostly known for their trench and this collection was no different, with a lot of structured trenches but Christopher Bailey send some  really nicely draped and knotted clothes as well. See for yourself.


Emma Watson @ Burberry Spring 2010

Ha! Do you guys remember "messy hair" Hermione from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone? Look at her now, all grown-up, super elegant and sexy!

Though she seems a little pale here, is there too much spotlight on her or are the other ones (Gwyneth Paltrow especially) abusing of the spray tan?

Emmy Awards 2009

It's been a while since I reviewed an award show. I wanted to do the VMA's but none of the red carpet celebrities impressed me. This event was no exception, but the dresses were really pretty and I found  that those two (Chloe Sevigny and Mila Kunis) standed out, mostly for the originality of the piece.

My take on the southern burger

Well I was watching the food network challenge for once and I saw all those excellent recipes for an original all american burger. One that really interested me was made by someone from South Carolina and consisted roughly of the regular burger topped with another "burger", made of cream cheese, regular cheese and pimientos - pimientos are almost like regular red peppers.
It looked really simple so I gave it a try, especially that we have a grill machine at home.

  • ground beef
  • egg
  • cream cheese
  • cheese
  • red pepper
  • burger bun
First you mix the egg with the beef, to make a burger, I think it's not really necessary but I never tried without so I'm not sure. I'd rather use it just so the burger doesn't fall all down at the end.
Of course you have to add salt/pepper and some spice and test it all at the end. It should be really tasty otherwise it won't taste anything once cooked.

While you grill your burger and toast the bun, mix the cream cheese with the regular cheese and the red pepper and do another burger with it. Try it thin first , if you like it you'll go all in the next time! On the tv they cooked it on top of the burger but they did have a real bbq grill. Otherwise you can put it on top of the toast.

At the end put everything together and your burger is done!

I really like the softness of the cream cheese added to this burger, it add some moisture to everything. I would add more spices to balance the softness though. So I usually spray some cayenne pepper on the burger once it's done.

Janet Jackson for Harper's Bazaar October 2009

Janet Jackson is on the cover of Harper's Bazaar for next month according her first interview since the death of her brother.
Congrats to Harper's for getting her story, but anyway , where else could she have gone... To be honest, there are very few good "content" magazines left. Only tabloids and fashion magazines. Which Harper's is part of but.. anyway, let's not disgress.
I find it funny when people "open" their heart in magazine.
What for?
Janet doesn't have any albums/tour/movie to promote.
What's more funny is her newstands cover.
Why is she laughing?
A little distasteful to my taste.
I would rather had used the first one.

What do you guys think about this cover?

I need some boots for this upcoming fall/winter

Here's what I found while browsing the net @Aldo Babinski boot
I love the form, finally something original for once - all the boots look the same to me .
The only thing is that I'm not sure about the heels (not specified but over 2,5) ,the price (140 US$), and the fact that they're in suede (and you guys all know about the rainy days in NJ)...
Anyway, what do you guys think?

Rihanna for Vogue , By Steven Klein

When I first saw these pictures I was almost hyperventilating. Rihanna was so hot and the editorial was on top.
Too bad it was for Vogue Italy.
And only the collection supplement.

Here's some of my favorites pics , I'll add more once the new features from blogger (the "read more" feature , pffu finally, after 10 years, will be working correctly)

One day, one day Ri-ri you'll be on the cover.
