Swan song

I could not be more excited about this film, its Rodarte costumes, and the posters below, which are by La Boca. Cannot wait for it to come out in the UK. That is all.

And the winner is...

Thanks to everyone for entering my giveaway! Sorry you couldn't all be winners, but the lucky lady is...  no.  54 lovely Vix of Ragmagpie!

I'm really happy she won because she's a brand new blogger and her blog is fab. In the interest of full disclosure I have to mention she's also my colleague's girlfriend (not a fix, I swear!) I almost redrew it but then that wouldn't have been fair, so Vix, enjoy the loot and merry Xmas, you won fair and square!

Congrats Vix xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The brows are not what they seem...

I'm 14 episodes into a serious Twin Peaks addiction. Despite the resultant nightmares (it's the most terrifying TV I've ever seen), I can't enough. Especially when it comes to the fantastic Audrey Horne, and in particular, her majestic eyebrows.

Sherilyn Fenn is a fox - I love Audrey's iconic brogues/pout/cigarette combo. But back to the brows. I'm beginning to think David Lynch has a brow fetish - check out the tweezer-work of his three leading ladies.

And finally - today's the last day of the blog giveaway, so click the banner above for your last chance to enter!

A Christmas Gift For You...

He may be a murderer, but Phil Spector knew how to do Christmas. Forget Band Aid, Alexandra Burke's sacrilegous Hallelujah or the entire Now That's What I Call Xmas album, these are the only sleigh bells I need to get me through the festive period. If you don't own it, get it downloaded and whack it on today, the first day when we're officially allowed to be festive.
The star of the show is, of course, Ronnie Spector, ringleader of The Ronettes and Phil's main squeeze. The woman was a hirsute wonder... and offered more than a little musical, make-up and backcombing inspiration to a certain Miss Winehouse.

That eyeliner! That fringe! That sultry look!
Ronnie has a new EP, Ronnie Spector's Best Christmas Ever, out for Crimbo 2010, and though I can't yet vouch for its quality, I'll be giving it a spin this afternoon.
Seems like a good time to debut my new Ronnie (and maybe a little bit Winkleman)-inspired fringe?
