Had to highlight this one as it’s going to be a great biopic done the HBO way. Bessie looks at Bessie Smith’s rise as a blues singer in America in the 1920s. The flapper fashions of the 1920s will be on full display. The costuming was done with the aid of Unique Vintage and they’ve gone full tilt to illustrate how to get the looks from the film.

Bessie premieres on HBO May 16th at 8pm.

I’ll cut to the chase and answer the post’s question. Yes.

But that comes with a caveat. The caveat is that Apple isn’t really placing the value on the watch, you are. If no one goes and buys it, it will be landfill material.

But that’s not the case.

We value the watch because it is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. There are others out there that are personally worth more, Patek, Concorde, Rolex, Audemars, IWC and countless immediately come to mind. Those are specifically and intentionally without digital components. The Apple watch tries to meld both the digital and the aesthetic all into one. Will it work? Nearly every celebrity via their stylist has already put in an order. It was a success before Tim Cook got on stage.

So is it worth $10,000? Sure. They could have price it at $20,000. But $10,000 is just enough to make you work hard to want to get it and if not, there’s always the $349 one (but that’s not really the one you want, is it?).

The dress is actually Blue and Black… but, when the photo was taken, the camera made it “hot” so the filtering of the color of the dress turned it into this gold color. Happens all the time with runway photography. Under hot lights, the models have a goldish hue. But once you auto-color (or turn on the cooling filter in photoshop) it turns it back closer to the color it should actually be.

No one here agrees though so take what I’m saying with a grain of salt.

Here’s a runway photo as an example:

It’s not as if the daring stuff Calvin Klein did in the 90s was enough. Now it’s in image and branding as well. Sex Tape is an interesting fragrance by perfume house Bohemian society. Complete with classic tape packaging and a quasi-phallic bottle, the perfume contains “notes of linen, leather, smoke, and exotic sweets.” AND according to the release “Sex Tape evokes your deepest memories of unbridled passion, lust and pure ecstasy.”

Some women wear the dress and for others, the dress wears them. Khloe Kardashian wore this creation from Theia at the Golden Globes last night and wore it well. The designer’s collection has proven to be appreciative on a range of types. Here’s the dress on a Theia model.

Vogue’s December issue has a great feature with Bradley Cooper on the Elephant Man Broadway production. Annie Leibovitz shot the feature and it is indeed beautiful with all of her signature touches (usage of contrasting color , depth and the richness of palette). In the feature, Cooper details his conversion from actor to man with such a strong disfigurement, of the original Elephant Man film he states in the feature, “I was entranced by the film making and the performances and just crushed by the plight of this guy”.

The feature is in Vogue’s December 2014 issue on news stands now.

The Enfants Riches Déprimés Hat is not for the price concious, but there’s an argument or some sort of platitude that art doesn’t have a price. Rita Ora seems to agree wearing this fetching Enfants Riches Déprimés Hat. Visit the site here.

Another recent shoot published on Papierdoll. This one featured models wearing basics from the likes of H&M. That coupled with very little make-up set the tone for a good fall foto story. View all the images here.
