I've Come to a Conclusion.

dear readers (if they're are any of you out there...),
i have decided that beauté externe has come to an end. there is so much more i would like to incorporate into my blog that i find this one limits. which is why i have decided to create, or should i say reinstate, my time and effort with my second blog rue intelligent (street smarts). this blog will incorporate current fashion from the runway of the latest shows, editorials from the current month's magazine issues, as well as photographs, taken by myself, of some of my favorite looks i see out on the LA streets ( and soon to be the SF STREETS!). Thank you soo much for following! i hope you enjoy as much as you have enjoyed this one.

Acne Spring/Summer 2010

Acne's s/s 10 collection was a soft pallet of creams and grays paired with metalics. a lovely combination in my opinion. i absolutely love the floor lengths dresses; a must have item for the upcoming s/s season.

Today at Paris Fashion week, Alexander McQueen's final line ( of his creation) was shown. What a true visionary. These sixteen garments shown ( only 80% of what McQueen intended to show) were the most breath taking pieces of art. Fashion was redefined by the late Alexander. He had so much to say, and was heard. Heard by all of us who looked at his shows as hope for a world of fashion that knew no bounds. A world of pure expression and chaotic lovely things. His garments empowered people; made them stand apart from the crowd. Alexander McQueen will be deeply missed. His impact on fashion was immense. we love you, Alexander. Rest in peace.View the collection here:
