Friday Fashion: Wardrobe Stylist Holly Suan Gray

A world without wardrobe stylists would be a boring one.
Your favorite magazines would be filled pages with incohesive laundry. The catwalks would have no story to tell. 
We sometimes forget the people that work behind the scenes with every designer, fashion icon, photographer, movie director and so on that help mold trends and influence our everyday style. They arrange garments, jewelry (and the occasional pork chop) to make bold statements that are audible by way of the things that we wear. When done correctly it truly becomes an art form and we appreciate them for what they do.
Today I'd like feature an amazing British freelance stylist by the name of Holly Suan Gray, whose portfolio took my breath away. It was difficult narrowing down my list of favorites among her dozens of editorials that are styled to perfection. I can show you better that I can tell you after the jump.

Valentines Day in Beverly Hills

Marilyn Monroe was on to something.
You can never go wrong with diamonds. But recently, I was curious enough to test out the theory of whether or not diamonds were really a girl's best friend. Check the vid.

That was an easy win. Now that you know what to do to keep her (or him) happy, HERE are a few pieces from the Jason of Beverly Hills Collection that are great for Valentine's Day.
You still have a few weeks to select the perfect gift, or have a piece custom designed for your special somebody.

Lady Gaga x House of Mugler

Monsters around the world (and I) have been salivating for a new banger from Lady Gaga, and here it is...
The remixed track, off of her upcoming album "Born This Way", was featured during the House of Mugler fashion show at Fashion Week in Paris.

So sick.
I would love to see this guys' year book photo ~vK

Damien Hirst Brings New Life to Dead Baby

We all want to top ourselves. There's no greater feeling than outselling your last album. Or perhaps smashing your own world record. Plateauing is for *ahem*, pansies, and a downward slope is the quickest route to obscurity.
It makes me wonder if artist Damien Hirst is set out to top his own shocking creations or if he just likes to watch his audience squirm.
I'll bet this dead baby skull that it's some creepy combination of both.

BUSTED!! 80 Year Old Jewelry Thief Caught in the Act

Hide your rings, hide your watch...
Jewelry thieves are blending in with society like mild mannered reporters/caped crusaders these days.
An 80 year old granny could very well be making prison her new home for her involvement in a recent jewelry theft in San Diego.
Doris Payne was convicted of grand theft and burglary in connection with the Jan. 2 a stolen $8,900 ring from Macy's.
And this isn't her first time at the rodeo. Payne has reportedly been flexing her five finger discount for decades making stops in New York, Las Vegas, London, Paris, Monte Carlo and Tokyo.
A 12 year prison sentence back in 1999 didn't stop her either. She quickly bounced back in 2005 while on parole to swipe a $8,500 ring in Nevada and a $31,500, three-stone diamond ring from a Neiman Marcus in Palo Alto, The Times reported back in an interview back in 2008.
If convicted of her latest crime, Payne will serve another five years in prison. Really grandma?
There are now talks of a movie about her life in the works to played by Halle Berry.

Well, that's one way to get famous...vK

Diamonds Are...

...are a girl's best friend.
Ask Peggy Lee.

Baubles, bangles,
Hear how they jing , jing-a-ling-a,
Baubles, bangles,
Bright, shiny beads.
Sparkles, spangles,
My heart will sing, sing-a-ling-a,
Wearing baubles, bangles and beads.
I'll glitter and gleam so,
Make somebody dream so,
That someday he may buy me,
A ring, ring-aling-a,
I've heard that's where it leads,
Wearing baubles and bangles and beads.
