It's New York fashion week and of course I have to give my two cents! I really loved the layering and textures at Gary Graham, and I thought the aesthetic was really cool! I love anything that is alienesque, and I thought the hair and makeup really did make the girls look extraterrestrial. I loved how everything looked a little disheveled and nothing looked brand new. I have to say I would wear almost every piece, the silhouettes were feminine and the draping made the garments really interesting.
I also really loved Chris Benz' collection. The colors were beautiful muted jewel tones, the patterns were really interesting, and the silhouettes were classic with an unusual twist. I loved the layering and the fur, and thought the fabrics were gorgeous and unique. Loved the shoes, and thought that the playful elements were really interesting, which basically means I really want the fur gloves and the electric hats! All in all wish I could wear beautiful clothes like these. Stay tuned for more faves from fashion week. <3 Brijitte

There are so many things I could say about Alexander Mcqueen, in fact I thought of more than a few! But there are no words to express the greatness. Mcqueen was my idol and it is so sad to think that he is gone. The world will not be the same without his beautiful art. In homage to him I decided to illustrate a few looks that I have found inspiring from throughout the years. I had the grand idea to do multiple illustrations but have only finished these two, so they will have to do for now. My love for Mcqueen and my love for fashion are synonymous and he will be truly missed but never forgotten! <3 Brijitte

Robert Leacock and is basically the bible for anyone obsessed with the supermodels of the 90's. As part of my icons series I've done an illustration of "the face of the 20th century" I actually saw Turlington on the street shooting a maybelline ad a few years ago in New York, and she is definitely born with it, as if it was even a question. Anywho I love her and think she is just so beautiful, in a very clean american athletic perfect way. And P.s. I hope I look 1% as good as she does when I'm 41! <3 Brijitte

I'm currently working on a series of iconic beauties! All women whose beauty I find inspirational! I of course had to start with the one and only Brigitte Bardot! She has always been a style and beauty inspiration to me. She is effortlessly beautiful and oozes sex appeal! I hope you can see Brigitte in this picture because I kind of see a little mix of Gwyneth, Joni Mitchell, and Brigitte's love child! Oh well love them all so it's a kill a million birds with one stone kinda sitch! <3 Brijitte
p.s. I know I may seem like an obsessed poster at the moment but I'm just trying to get a good start on this blog! And plus don't you want something to look at? Or would you rather be bored? I thought so!

This is an illustration that I did a few days ago after I saw a fashion spread of Sasha Pivovarova as Jessica Rabbit! Jessica Rabbit has always been a huge inspiration because basically she is the epitome of feminism and beauty. I feel this way about Sasha too, I just love her. My friend Dana saw this illustration and said that she looks like me, why thanks! What an amazing compliment! And in closing all I can say is "Why don't you do right like some other men do!" <3 Brijitte
