I adore Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. They are my favorite Detroit band - heck, one of my favorite bands in general - and I absolutely love their new single, "If You Didn't See Me Then You Weren't On the Dancefloor." It's poppy, upbeat and danceable, just the way I like my indie rock, and I can't wait to hear the rest of the album! Check out the new single below, and for tour dates and more info, visit www.daleearnhardtjrjr.com.
Although it certainly doesn't feel like it here in Michigan (brrrrr, it is cold outside!), today is the first day of spring. It's not quite time to break out the sundresses and open-toe shoes, but there are other ways to celebrate winter's end - like this super cool chandelier by Pani Jurek. Made of test tubes and inspired by Nobel Prize-winning chemist Marie Curie, it's a whimsical mix of nature and science.
I'm woefully behind in my show coverage (I always seem to be the busiest with shoots and other projects right in the middle of fashion month), but I had to take a moment to share the mind blowing gorgeousness that is the Alexander McQueen fall 2013 collection. A tight, 10-look collection of exquisitely detailed pieces shown in pairs, the collection brought to mind religious heroines like Joan of Arc and Queen Elizabeth I. The show notes, posted on the McQueen website, referenced "the ecclesiastical wardrobe, from communion gowns to cardinals' robes" as the inspiration for the collection, and all I have to say is, Amen!
One of the things that I absolutely love about working with Hour is that it has given me the opportunity to style more menswear than I ever have in my career. I used to find men's a little intimidating, but now I adore it and look forward to dressing the guys as much as the girls. For the March issue, the fashion story focused exclusively on men's, and our group of guys were a riot to work with. Their personalities were as bold as the bright colors I dressed them in, and everyone had a blast on set. Check out the full shoot below, and for all the details on the fly threads, pick up the March issue of Hour Detroit or visit HourDetroit.com.
