Lady Gaga for Vogue September 2012 Issue

lady gaga for vogue

Lady Gaga for Vogue this coming September!  I’ve listed some things we can expect from this issue:

A Heavy Purse/Murse

I’m all down for a thick magazine, but PLEASE don’t bore me with more from that extremely preppy Tommy Hilfiger ad campaign.  I don’t know how many times I’ve seen this in the Montreal metro ads, online and in every fashion issue I’ve picked up in these past couple of months.  Stop trying to sell this dream, because it’s making us all gag!

Lots of Crazy Spring 2012 Inspiration

The cover tells us that Lady Gaga is in the middle of transforming her style, much like your typical fashionista will do as she gathers influence from season to season.  She’s becoming more girly, but always has that special twist to offer in her attire. This is what puts her right up there with other big influences in fashion.  I think this issue will give me some great outfit ideas for this spring/summer and you guys will be the first to know what I come up with.  I personally think that influence in art is the only way to grow and that we should never let an ego stop us from transforming our style on others’ behalf!

Lady Gaga Interview

Honestly, I’m REALLY not that into celebrity gossip or stories, so it would take a lot out of me to actually read this interview lol.  I think I’ll stick to looking at pretty pictures of her style instead.  Isn’t that why every person “reads” vogue?

Ads – DUH

I don’t buy magazines too often because the idea of buying someone else a chance to sell to you seems a bit…stupid.  I try to rationalize to myself that I’m buying a bundle of ideas that I’ll be able to explore while I’m on the bus.  I also take myself out of the potential demographic for these advertisers because I simply don’t have the money for that (Of course, I may have the money at some point in which case they are investing wisely). In any case, I enjoy original ads that display beautiful fashion photography.

Come September, I’ll be back in school full-time for my last year and Lady Gaga for Vogue will be there to help me procrastinate.

Model Poses Teaser: OMG where am I?

Here’s a little teaser of a project that I intend on doing once I get out of this busy wave.  I’m not quite sure if I look crazy, shocked or just plain stupid, but this pose is inspired by one of my favourite models, the one and only Coco Rocha.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I also realize how noisy/technically bad this photo must be.  I currently know very little about photography, but I did my best with the amount of light that I had when the photo was taken, and with time I had to edit.

Anyway, my idea is to choose a few funny and/or weird poses from top models and try to recreate them and have a little fun.  I will be using my own clothes for this so don’t expect anything too out of this world – my budget is tight! I expect the post to come out in the next few weeks. Hopefully it will be entertaining for you guys.

Cheers!

Birthday Thoughts

I just turned 23! Booo. The first thing that came into mind was, damn I don’t want to be 24! Some thoughts ran through my head:

  • I really need to get my driver’s license. I’ve had my permit for 4 years now. Seriously, my parents are bribing me with a car so that I can get my license.
  • Half my friends have graduated with their engineering degree. I wish I had graduated so I can finally move on with the next chapter of my life. Earn some dollars, save up for my own place and try not to indulge in designer items.
  • We’re revamping Snob Affair. We are always going to be style-oriented with our blog but we’re going to have a different approach. Stay tuned!

On another note, I just bought the necklace from Banana Republic and had to show you guys! I’m an accessories-freak! So you might notice that my clothes are fairly basics with a touch of some fun detail paired with fun statement jewellery.

My outfit:

  1. White Jacquard Blazer by Zara
  2. Nude Metallic Tank Top by Simons
  3. Coral Necklace by Banana Republic
  4. Coral Stretch Bracelet by Forever21
  5. Watch MK5505 by Michael Kors
