Peter Jackson's Lovely Bones

The movie "The Lovely Bones" is based on the bestselling book and is directed by Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings trilogy, Kingkong). The cast includes Susan Sarandon, Rachel Weisz, and Mark Wahlberg(who took the place of another hottie, Ryan Gosling). And speaking of hotties, you guys will not believe how healthy and cool Peter Jackson looks lately.

From this:

People would cruelly compare Jackson to one of the Hobbit characters in the famous trilogy for his frumpy, stout figure. But it wasn't until the shooting of Kingkong that people started to notice the drastic weight loss. He only lost about 70 lbs. (32 kgs.) but the difference is so noticeable. He credits having a change of lifestyle to his weightloss, not some fad diet. Aside from that, he also says that shooting Kingkong took a toll on his body. And to top it all off, he went through laser eye surgery, to free himself from his dust-magnet glasses. Voila! A new and much improved Academy-award winning director. Keep it up!

(My cousin, Shelbey)

There's a new clothing store in SM Davao. It's called Mental. Seriously. And I seriously love it! Their store definitely stood out, just look at the window display! Where there used to be benches, there are now wheelchairs! They will go to charity in 3 months time, says the note posted at the side. The salesladies even dress like nurses (but they're not real uniforms ha!). I found two shirt dresses that I adore, and they fit me too!

So when someone asks me where I bought my "unique" tops, I can say, "at Mental". Seriously.

Fashion Has Gone to the Movies

I seriously cannot wait to watch "Coco Avant Chanel" starring Audrey Tatou.

The movie itself is causing a stir in Paris because of the ads. Public smoking is banned in all of Paris. In Davao, we are a no-smoking city as well but we're not that strict. It's a movie for crying out loud.

Also looking forward to seeing this documentary chronicling Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour's preparations for the 2007 fall-fashion issue. The September Issue.

Have you seen these films? Tell me what you think.

Have a

I admit, I'm a addict.

I first heard about this website on twitter, where a very fashionable and popular Philippine actress was gushing about it. Hmmm. Ma-try nga. And so it starts.

Remember the days of the cardboard paper doll? Or dressing up Barbie with her expensive clothes? This is the digitalized paperdoll, or more aptly named, cyberdoll, as I like to put it.

The clothes are oh so yummy, and you get to be a stylist, picking clothes and dressing up this cyberdoll to your liking. And the "doll" herself is gorgeous, who can go wrong? The website is still in Beta, but I hope it gains more members soon.

Now excuse me while I dress my doll.

Heather Miss Grey

Bleach Catastrophe and Cecile Zamora-Van Straten(my idol!) have collaborated to produce a line of not-so-basic t-shirts that are loose, carefree, but fashionable. With a neutral color palette who could go wrong? The prints are inspired by Victorian images: leafless trees, birds in flight, corseted women, colonial farmhouses, and bows.This is a limited edition offering. Too bad we don't have BC in Davao :-(

Bliss by Monique Lhuillier

A-List fashion designer Monique Lhuillier is the go-to name when it comes to stylish and unique wedding dresses. She has designed the gowns of celebrities such as Britney Spears, Pink, Alicia Silverstone, Lea Salonga, and Ali Landry, just to name a few. Her creations are also very visible on red carpets. She even made a sketch of a lace-detailed, mermaid style frock for Bella Swan's wedding in "The Twilight" saga. Makes you proud, yes?

According to Stylelist, the husband and wife-founded company will be launching a more affordable line of wedding dresses, appropriately named Bliss by Monique Lhuillier. The designs will still be made of the finest lace, organza, and silk, and still carry the designer's trademark embellishments and flair for design, but priced for us regular folks.

15 of her most famous designs will be in stores this fall at the respective M.L. retailers worldwide. Prices are predicted to range from $ 2,300.00 to $3,500.00 Hmmm... still a bit pricey if you ask me, but understandable as her name is synonymous to quality and style.

The Sartorialist Published!

If you're a big fan of The Sartorialist like I am, then you must be dying to get your hands on Scott Schuman's book of his photographs. I not only like the fashion on his website, I love his photographic style as well. Very natural, using only available light, and with very interesting subjects. According to Mr. Schuman's site, the book comes out August 12th in the US, and the rest of the world by early September. (drool)
