this is garance who i am certain needs absolutely positively no introduction. since spotting one another amid a sea of fashion week n'importe quoi over these past days in sydney we have become - ecoutez garance - "great mates." i adore this woman and in fact, so too does the rest of sydney. we have been doing tandem posts over these past days so here is what she shot of me (linlee "muriel heslop" allen) and garance "delovely" dore. today on her blog she described me as "a ray of sunshine." for me, garance is the all-time arc en ciel. a funny, fantastic woman. ps. its her birthday tomorrow...ssshhh!!!!

the ultra-special, super amazing blogger extraordinaire garance dore just posted a shot of me on her lovely site. i trust her wholeheartedly when she says not to pose, just to be myself whilst she is taking photos of me here in sydney at rosemount australian fashion week. the result captures what i think is a totally true depiction of my character, but also, it reminds me of the one and only muriel heslop from the film 'muriel's wedding' - c'mon folks, don't tell me you don't spot the similarity? haha!!!

i've been a major fan of this young atlanta-based accessory designer for a while now and i'm willing to bet within a year she's going to be a leading contender as one of the bright stars to watch in america. her name is yokoo, that's her below sporting her latest creation, the "elizabeth pom-pom hair band." for more yokoo brilliance check her site HERE

you'd have to get up pretty early in the morning to catch anything resembling mediocrity from the mind of director chris cunningham. his latest collaboration is with gucci for their new flora fragrance campaign which looks spectacular and haunting rolled into one. but wait, whoever is responsible for casting the crazy, dumb-ass voice at the fifty five second-mark announcing the product should be sacked. all that visual brilliance and then a huge aural let-down. what a waste!

special prayers for shawn mortensen today, an incredibly talented and influential photographer who rode the wave of being in the right place at the right time like a true pro. i first discovered his work many years ago when working for colette in paris and took this shot of him in miami during art basel in december last year. although i didn't know him so well, something tells me he's the kind of guy who was content with staring death in the face and when it was his time to go, he headed up to heaven with no regrets. respect and peace.

i've become a huge fan of purple diary over the past month for their very cool selection of crazy shots in different parts of the world starring a diverse assortment of characters in assorted settings. monday april 20th is a particularly good shot i think...ahuh!
