▶ Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Spring/Summer 2014 ft. Dita Von Teese – FashionTV
Paris Couture Fashion Week has been well underway for a few days, and I went completely against my normal urge to post Chanel and went straight to what really played with my emotions, the Jean Paul Gaultier runway show featuring Dita Von Tesse. Why? Anyone that gorgeous that sees past the distraction that is Marilyn Manson and finds his soul is truly fascinating.
Have fun with this fun and flirty collection and tell me what you think of the theme.
If you aren’t familiar with FashionTV, this is a good time to check out the present and upcoming runway shows that us mere mortals don’t have access to. There is live streaming, interviews, and anything that is remotely attached to the fashion world. For me, couture is the most fun because it is so creative and over-the-top, and the challenge of dialing it back to reinvent the looks for the real world is like a roller coaster thrill. I really marvel at those who can execute creativity and talent so flawlessly. Sigh… I would wear many of these looks just the way they are with absolutely nowhere to go.
I created StylEnigma in 2014 to celebrate the beauty of individuality and creative personal expression. I love the idea of being a canvas and expressing myself by transforming into the embodiment of my mood or the mood I want to be in. I am fascinated by different beauty and style standards, and fashion instinctively incorporates both. I’ve written for decades and use writing as a form of education, but I haven’t had the time or mental capacity to dedicate to my project for a long time and I’m anxious to get back to creating content about the beauty of individuality.
I’ve never been into cliques or trends because I’ve always believed that personal style supersedes trends. I’ve never been a follower or stressed about being liked because I learned at an early age that you’ll never please everyone, so you might as well be yourself. Of course, that doesn’t come without its challenges. We should celebrate uniqueness more.
I love dark colors like black and midnight blue. I own so much black clothing I’ve been accused of being in a perpetual state of mourning. I love nail art; in fact, I started this blog because of a Nailasaurus nail art post, and before that, I owned a nail and skincare salon. I have a major collection of nail art images I have never posted, which is shameful. However, I’m going to rectify that character flaw by sharing my nail art journey.
As a lupus patient, I am also learning how to make ADHD work for me (a factor in post shortages) and it is challenging. I am also learning how to create and edit videos, using Vine product reviews as the testing ground.
Thanks for hanging in there with me,
