Walkin in my dreams

Tim Walker, the beloved Brit fashion photographer, shot his first Vogue spread when he was 25.  Twenty years later, it's reveled that he's never been interested in clothes, but more interested in portraying his dreams and making them a reality.  Tim Walker has been part of the elite fashion photography team, shooting everyone from Tilda Swinton, Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss to Alexander Mcqueen.   Walker's work is theatrical and borders on surrealist ideas.  He aims to create in his pictures "the parameters of the impossible."

Today we celebrate Tim Walker's work.  This past Saturday was the opening of Tim Walker: Dreamscapes, where his work is on display.  It is open for view until September 1, 2013 at the Bowes Museum in County Durham, England.

In honor of Tim Walker, this Memorial Day weekend I had a photoshoot of my own, displaying one of my favorite fashion books of all time, Story Teller.  It features the over-the-top photographs that Tim Walker is notorious for.  What's more enjoyable to look at than pretty photoshoots in the sun?
Christian Louboutin 'Manon' pumps, $1295 
Fendi Colorblock sandals, $695 
Tim Walker, Story Teller, $75

Googa Mooga

Instagram
The Great Googa Mooga, one of Brooklyn's finest festivals of the summer season was just this past weekend.  Headliners included Kool & the Gang, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Flaming Lips and The Darkness.  Unfortunately, on the third day of the festival Googa Mooga was shut down due to the heavy downpour.  Nonetheless, it didn't stop the New Yorker's from their strutting their style.  Here are some style looks from The Great Googa Mooga.

Festival de Cannes

The most anticipated film festival of the year is in full swing and no one can stop the fashion looks of the season.  Cannes Film Festival 2013 is dedicated to previewing new films of all genres from around the world.  This year the festival opened with the The Great Gatsby and will close on Sunday with Zulu.  Among the official Cannes selections are those of Joel and Ethan Coen, Roman Polanski, Sofia Coppola, and Alexander Payne.  Second to the viewing of these films are the fashions that come along side Cannes.  We all know what this means: Red Carpet watch that lasts more than a week.  Thus far, my favorite looks include but are not limited to Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana, Nicole Kidman, and of course Cara Delevingne.  Here are some looks from the South of France.

Doin' It Right

The seven year gap for a new Daft Punk album has kept most of us on our toes, and no I don't count the Tron soundtrack as new tracks.  But who knew the among others that two great artists of our time were friends? Recently, Hedi Slimane and Daft Punk collaborated in a photoshoot for Saint Laurent and the upcoming Daft Punk album, Random Access Memories.  Need not be told, Guy- Manuel de Homen-Christo, Thomas Bangalter and Hedi Slimane have rightfully earned their names in our century.  Together, they make a hell of a crew and even better friends as told by an interview with Sky Ferreira.  You can read the full interview here.
And for those of you who have already gotten the leaked album and do not think it's genius, take this because they actually can't wait for you to hate their album.  
Sparkles? check.
Saint Laurent? check.
Daft Punk? check.
Lookin hard? check.
