delinlee does day four...

day four of my RAFW reporting for grazia has just been posted online. check it HERE

my new BFF

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!!!!

delinlee loved ROMANCE WAS BORN

i'm penning a review of the amazing and ultra-incredible ROMANCE WAS BORN show from RAFW right now so i won't go into too much detail but here are a few shots to wet your palette whilst you wait for the link...

delinlee does day three

delinlee does muriel

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!!!

chris cunningham + gucci gone to the dogs with a naff voice over

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!

RIP shawn mortensen

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.
