The kids are so quiet, almost like they know, something's got to happen, something's got to change, all change. You never used to get paralytic, well maybe I should get paralytic. And she asks herself why our lives just come and go? And are we ever gonna get a voice of our own?

Her name is Lyoka Tyagnereva and she is from St.Petersburg. She's with Nathalie in Paris, One in NYC, FM in London and Fashion Milan, while her mother agency is Grace Moscow. I need models with this look. Querelle Jansen, Heather Bratton (R.I.P), Meghan Collison...there is just something about looking cool and in control and tough and not generic. Again, she surprises me with her versatility. You'd think that with those cheekbones and eyes she'd have the same distinctive look in every picture. Yes, she is not generic model, but that doesn't mean that she can't be versatile. That is one one of my favorite things about her. She can be the wallflower pradacoathanger, rock and roll soul, lost looking girl or confident woman. I have no idea about her age! That's what I really want to know. She could be 16, 20 or 23.

Oh if someone wants free copy of Nylon Nov. then let me know and I'll send it to you. Just let me rip out the Elliott Smith part. It's such a crappy issue. What else is crap? Gina Tricot, Oasis, H&M. Zara had some nice Prada inspired things, coats and shoes. Bo hoo, chainstores are bad, but I found vintage Hermés scarf (Grande Tenue by Henri d'Origny) this week from the same jesus second-hand where I have found vintage Charles Jourdan sunglasses, Cacharel skirt and Dior scarf and tons of great, non-label things. People are really nice there, everything is ironed and hanging neatly without ridiculous price tags. I did some online search and the scarf is vintage according to the copyright symbol being next to the Hermés Paris. My only complain is that the scarf has a tiny run in the silk :( But this purchase got me really intrested in Hermés scarves (especially vintage)! They are one of the most beautiful things around!
Plus the jesus second hand had furry things!! Don't you love them? I do I do I do I do I love them like a fool. Blame Prada, and this cute one modeled by Meghan Collison! It didn't say who was it by in the editorial, I'm guessing it's second hand.

Before Metropolis, I watched The Girl with the Hat Box . I think it is the first silent movie I've seen without any voice, without any musical composition. Crazy. Why am I dragging myself to somewhere on Sundays to watch these movies from 20s, giving the theatre the last Euros of my week? Because my school of desire wants me to be intrested in film. Atleast it says so on the website. They want me to be intrested in culture. For the only time I've been in Opera, I fell asleep because I was so tired, not because it was boring. Well, it was the final rehearsal and there were lots of school groups, and it didn't cost me anything, I wasn't even nicely dressed. Films on the other hand, they are so much easier.

Anyways, in my last post I introduced Olesya, and watching this romantical silent comedy from Russia made me think about her. I think her, with the eyebrows, and Anna Sten, the star of the movie, have the same Russian features (her dad was Ukraninan and mother from Sweden). Also, the role of Natasha, hat maker who lives in the countryside with her grandpa and delievers the ready hats to Madame Irenes Hat Store in Moscow was very cute, charming and playful. I couldn't find nice pictures from the web about this movie, I'm sorry, I'm not so into Google Images like some people.
It's gets so dark these days, and so fast too, I can't believe I'll have to live 6 months without proper twilight. It was snowing today, The Girl with the Hat Box is full of snow in the countryside while Moscow is bare of snow. Natasha had curly hair topped with white woolly hat, kohled eyes and big simple winter coat plus amazing 20s lace-up boots.
