Give a frock Friday

Before Sunrise Elle 2005 Gilles Bensimon Miranda KerrThis week’s frock is worn by Miranda Kerr, looking like Ariel the mermaid washed upon the shore or maybe she partied all night and passed out on the beach? Couldn’t possibly be the latter if it’s Miranda Kerr, right? Anyway, whatever the intention of the photographer with this image, it’s inspiration for our beachside camping trip commencing this weekend! I also get to spend an entire week with my little family. While the girls are on school summer holidays here, I have not been able to spend much time with them due to my day job, so I am making the most of the time we have together before school starts up again.

Back to the frock, this sea foam green silk satin gown by Calvin Klein Collection, photographed by frenchman, Gilles Bensimon for January 2005 American Elle editorial “Before Sunrise”. Click through the image for more.

Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are!

Give a frock Friday

Today’s frock is inspired by something that is happening tomorrow.  It has to do with Carrie Bradshaw and episode 6 of season 1 where she has her picture taken for a publicity photo. Carrie is so darn professional-model-like in her shoot, for a character who is not a model, how is it that she knows all the moves? The infamous “naked dress” is Calvin Klein, by the way.

I have been dreaming about personalising my blog header since late last year. I want my header image to evolve the way I like, I wish, I heart has evolved. It’s true, other blogs I read have inspired me to do this, but it was a foodie blog, MattBites that sparked the first seeds of having someone take my picture for it. How it’s all going to look in the end is still percolating in little bursts in my mind.   

Anyway, my question to you dear readers is this. How is an otherwise very self-conscious girl – who loathes having her picture taken, going to get her inner Carrie Bradshaw on at the shoot?  

And just to be clear, no I won’t be wearing a naked dress!

Help me,please!

These images, and the designs, take me back to my early days of exploring fashion, understanding design and getting to know the who’s who of designers.  I just love the memories.
