I've been collecting some great pictures of Liza Minnelli for a while now wanting to do a post on her on her Birthday. And behold March 12th came and went without my Liza post. With March coming in like a lion, and well still continuing to be very lioness towards the end, it had totally escaped my mind to do my Liza post. But it is better late than never so here's to Miss Minnelli!
I was never really acquainted with Liza's work. I knew of her only from her later life in tabloids, controversial marriages, and of course because of her famous mother Judy Garland. But in the last few years I started getting a lot of comparisons to Liza. It bothered me at first since I only was familiar with middle aged Liza but when I saw Cabaret, I realized that this girl had style and loads of talent! The hair, the voice, those eyes, the moves, the hair (did I already mention that?) made this descendent of Hollywood royalty a star in her own right. Happy 66th Miss Liza!
Behold Miss Frida Gustavsson in a picturesque photo shoot for Elle Sweden. Miss Gustavsson graces the pages of Elle wearing 1940's influenced frocks by Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana & Sonia Rykiel. But of course what really stole my affection in this photo shoot are those ridiculously enamoring collars! I could never have too many collars in my life.
With my birthday just around the corner, now is the best time ever to justify buying a new dress. What better time than as I voyage deeper into my late 20's (ugh, must I remind myself?) to reward myself with something new, wearable and full of lust?
I've pretty much decided that this year I will purchase a TBA dress from their Spring 2012 collection. Oh TBA, how I love your perfect pleats, your mini hemlines, and of course keen collars. Let one of these dashing dresses and I ring in another candle on the birthday cake.
