Carmen Dell'Orefice | Class is Forever |

Know as one of the industry's oldest working models, Carmen Dell'Orefice is a beauty to say the least. I would use the term girl-crush but that just wouldn't really be appropriate. She is a legend, having graced the lenses of Avedon to Parkinson and Irving Penn, in addition to being Salvador Dali's muse at one point. Those eyes have quite the story to tell I am sure.

Illusion is the first of all pleasures.

Bloom by Roddy Lumsden

You who thrived where the horse trod,

where the apple smashed,
who shot up straight where the river sloshed
and rolled, who rose from blood;
who ran your flag
up from the grifting dune
and pulled a pale sky down,
who budded on a sodden sack or log,
took seed and caught along the track’s edge,
who jinked from crags and where walls slip,
who broached the lip
of lintels, burst on finial and ledge;
you who tested luck and unluck,
thrift-fed, driven by wind and water,
frost ticking each petal,
roping root and stem, the black
of black night lost to hope, you
cast the fine day as your fetch
and when it knocked and brought your wish
and you were found, you grew.

 WE-ARE IN BLOOM MAGAZINE

model:  Chloe Norgaard  @ Photogenics | photography: Jessica Haye & Clark Hsiao |  fashion editor: Moses | make up: Andre Sarmiento | hair: Sean Mikel | art: Luba Myts | fashion assistants: Thomas Carter and Anastasya

This feature was shot in Malibu for IN BLOOM Magazine - featuring all Lubashka jewelry . The art for the layout was done by the designer herself, Luba Myts. The text  surrounding the images is a famous russian poem by Fyodor Tyutchev's titled - "The Dull Flame of Desire" :

I love your eyes, my dear
Their splendid sparkling fire
When suddenly you raise them so
To cast a swift embracing glance
Like lightning flashing in the sky
 But there is a charm that is greater still
 When my love's eyes are lowered
 When all is fired by passion's kiss
 And through the downcast lashes
 I see the dull flame of desire

Monday Manners

Tom Ford is the epitome of class. His work speaks for itself but my love for him goes beyond the beauty he creates. This is one of the many examples of his way with words and life overall that go beyond the brand and creating a lifestyle.  A world through the eyes of Mr. Ford .  

Tom Ford's five easy lessons in how to be a modern gentleman ... 

1. You should put on the best version of yourself when you go out in the world because that is a show of respect to the other people around you.

2. A gentleman today has to work. People who do not work are so boring and are usually bored. You have to be passionate, you have to be engaged and you have to be contributing to the world.

3. Manners are very important and actually knowing when things are appropriate. I always open doors for women, I carry their coat, I make sure that they're walking on the inside of the street. Stand up when people arrive at and leave the dinner table.

4. Don't be pretentious or racist or sexist or judge people by their background. 

5. A man should never wear shorts in the city. Flip-flops and shorts in the city are never appropriate. Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach.
