addicted to love

From Marc Jacobs campaigns to LOVE magazine, Elle Fanning has landed the latest cover of LOVE and it's quite enchanting. Photographed by the fabulous duo, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Dakota's sister has started to make some serious waves in the fashion industry. Elle's cover is one of many for the issue. Other covers released so far belong to Chloe Moretz and Hailee Steinfeld. The unique magazine is back with a fresh set for fall and winter, and you might as well face it because I'm addicted to LOVE.

the curve of forgotten things

Elle goes burrowing for treasure in Todd Cole's new collaboration with Rodarte, The Curve of Forgotten Things. The short film features Kate and Laura Mulleavy's spring 2011 collection which drew inspiration from the gold rush and northern California in the 1970s. Elle dances gracefully throughout the empty rooms of the historic house, her outfits changing magically from one room to the next. Georgia-based indie rockers Deerhunter provide the dreamy score. As for the unique title, Todd Cole explains, “It's the title of a Richard Brautigan poem. The poem and the film are about forgotten things—circles and the curve of time.”

Although this magical event took place in early May, I can't get enough of the beautiful people, clothing, and of course, the infamous Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at the Costume Institute Gala. Walk up the red-carpeted stairs, step inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and check out the biggest party of the year. Only through this video can you get a peek at the featured exhibit, "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty," and also a beautiful and sensational performance by Florence + the Machine. Catch a glimpse of all the top models, designers, celebrities, and many more.

The mixture of youthful essence and over the top luxury is instantly appealing, just right for the pages of Bazaar.

Every year the enchanting Victoria's Secret fashion show takes its place. Millions constantly wonder what will be presented in the intriguing extravaganza. How could you not wonder after seeing Adriana Lima flaunt a 5 million dollar bra adorned with nearly 3,900 gems in the 2008 show? If you thought that was the only time you'd see something that exquisite, think again. Adriana models yet another 'fantasy bra' again this year, and has over 3,000 diamonds. There is always something fascinating every year, and I'm never not impressed. Sadly, one of my favorite models, Miranda Kerr will not be gracing the runway this year with her killer charm due to her pregnancy. However, there will be many newcomers which I'm very excited about. The long-legged and tanned supermodels will be presenting some of the most beautiful lingerie on Tuesday, November 30th, so you best tune in to watch the goddesses strut their stuff down the sparkling pink runway. Behind the show is indeed complete chaos, and without such a skilled team, I don't think the show would be as magical and captivating as it is. For those of us who didn't get to attend the show earlier on with the elite individuals, photographer Danielle Rech gives a sneak peak for a glimpse of the reality that makes the magic possible before we see it all on the 30th of November.
