a feathery topic

So I know I posted about Erin Wasson just yesterday but while I was going through some style inspiration pics I saw this one of her (left) and I thought to myself now that's familiar, and then I remembered I had seen Rumi Neely wearing a similar feather headpiece in her New York Fashion Week  post. Now it got me thinking about an article i had read about Rumi taking over from Erin as a designer at RVCA (correct me if I have my facts wrong please) and at the end they said that Rumi Neely copies Erin Wasson! Gasp of horror! Now I know it may look as if I am trying to prove this but I am not, I personally think that Rumi Neely of fashiontoast is a style goddess as is Erin Wasson, and actually I'd just like to show that they are both so fabulously stylish that they can pull off a mini feather headdress! I wish I could! Have a good weekend! K

model of the week: erin wasson

Rockstar chic Erin Wasson has always been a favourite of mine, her effortless style is contagious and I love her designs for RVCA. Seen in campaigns for Pinko as well as playing designer and model for RVCA and a familiar face on the covers of Vogue, Elle Uk, Elle Italia and I-D to name but a few she was also the face of Maybelline for awhile. I must admit I think I have a girl crush on her, but it might just be her style. K x

the maw i want

I finally got a chance to shoot the stunning Taniel Telo again! We had been planning a shoot for sometime but couldn't really find the time to do it. So this weekend we paired up with talented make up artist Alet and made a day of it! Despite the weather we had a great time and I'm really happy with these pics! Hopefully I will be working on more collaborations with stylish talented girls like Taniel & Alet! K

awesome menswear - uber stylish boys!

I have had an extremely busy past couple of days starting on Saturday with the Men's Day held at BMW SMG. It was the launch of the fabulous Danielle Margaux's collection and it was quite a hit. Beautiful shades of grey mixed with whites and lots of this season's favourite - stripes! The mens wear was especially fabulous considering it was her first mens wear collection and the boys looked great in their attire. Well done Dani! On Sunday I woke up to really miserable weather which got me in a bit of a panic as I was shooting but after a slow start we shot for most of the day and came out with some awesome pictures! I'll be posting those soon! My work week only started today (lucky me) because I was involved in the campaign shoot for MK Awards.. I couldn't post any pics which is probably a good thing considering I was wearing a full uni-tard of luminous pink Lycra - not my proudest moment! So we'll just have to wait and see how those come out! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! K

the ones to watch

I came across this site this morning when I was reading the lovely Jessica's blog eclectic raccoon. Not only does she have an awesome rock-star style but she also has a great eye for a good photo (or at least I think so). So when I saw she had recommended The Ones2Watch I immediately had to have a look. What an inspiring site, I love every bit of it from layout to content, I will definitely be spending a couple free afternoons reading here. Klaudia

rock chic

Long live rockstar chic. I absolutely love this story photographed by Eric Guillemain of super model Tanya Dziahileva, better known as Tanya D, of Elite Model Management. K


These are a few pics from the shoot i did with gorgeous Brazilian Tassia Andrade two weeks ago. As I said before she works really well and is always a pleasure to shoot with. The afternoon light was extremely bright so we had to make the best with what we had, and clearly I am a little obsessed with back lighting and lens flare but I love the light in these. This stunning little dress is on of my favourites from Pepe Jeans Spring / Summer Collection (for stockists see here) great with a little denim jacket or skinny waist belt, dress it up with heels or down with a pair of flat sandals!

birds of a feather

I am more than a little obsessed with feathers at the moment! Well I have been for awhile, but my sister pointed out these Kurt Geiger boots (above) to me this weekend and I went into a feather frenzy! These are a few feathery items I absolutely love (and lust after). K
1. Crystal Embellished Feather Gilet - Haute Hippie
2. Feather print Silk Georgette Cape - Alexander McQueen
3. Feather Clutch Bag - Monsoon
4. Black Feather Ankle Boots - Kurt Geiger
5. Feather Neclace - Lanvin

model of the week - abbey lee kershaw

Extremely successful Australian model Abbey Lee Kershaw of Chic Management has been quite popular this year in the Fashion World. With recent campaigns for big names such as Mousy (Spring 2010), Mulberry (Fall 2010) and Alexander Wang (Fall 2010), just to name a few, she is also a firm favourite of photographers such as Greg Kadel and Craig Mc Dean. Abbey Lee is a force to be reckoned with and we can't help but to marvel in her sheer beauty and talent! K

lets get lost

One of my favourite sources for inspiration is Fashion Gone Rogue, I cannot explain the happiness it brings me when I browse through the endless editorials and shoots up on FGR. I came across this story shot for Superette magazine by photographer Oliva Hemus of models Lauren Nuttel and Vinnie Woloston. It is so natural and real and every photo makes you feel like you've walked into this beautiful scene, just delightful.
I'm going to be shooting the very talented Taniel Telo soon, we are working on a little project, which she aptly named 'the maw i want' - love it! So look out for those pics soon! Much love, K

it's natural

I am a great lover of nature and the outdoors. I recently went on a hike in Kalk Bay that takes you up to caves that go through the mountain to the other side. It was quite nerve wracking but an amazing experience once I knew I was out and safe! These pics were taken on the way up with a fixed 50mm 1.8 lens. The low f/stop creates the blurred backgrounds, a detail I love in photography especially when it is light flecks. Hope you all had a good weekend. Photos of my shoot on Saturday coming soon! K
