James Franco having a Hemingway moment. Can’t get enough of that old hollywood style and his mind….well, that’s just sexy. His aspirations and his commitment to his greater education are inspiring.
Gifted, versatile and quietly self-assured, Mia Wasikowska’s journey to date has been rich, diverse and entirely worth following. Lending her acting prowess to the fashion world as well as the big screen, the latest notch on her belt, as the face of Miu Miu’s Spring 2012 campaign. I would never have recognized her if I didn’t know. Her ability to transform and take on such contrasting roles is her weapon and a powerful one for such a young artist. I’m excited to see her grow into the coming phases of her career. Inspiring indeed.
A little something from my latest hero, Quentin Jones. She’s an american multi-media artist who among other things, creates these magical videos, using photographic stills and animated illustration.

If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would it be and why? I’d be exactly where I am but dream travel destinations would be New York and Paris.
What are you listening to at the moment? I really love hip hop and R&B. There’s always a mix playing in my car. Currently listening to Christina Perri’s ‘A thousand years’.
What inspires you? Seeing how other people live, inspiring blogs, beautiful quotes, Lula Magazine, love….definitely love.
Fashion Icons? I don’t think I have just one style icon. It’s hard to pick just one…I love finding inspiration in strange places and from many different people. Hmmm…Maybe the Olsen twins…They have been a secret style obsession for many years.
What is your favourite piece in your wardrobe and is there a story connected to it? I really love this outrageous Trelise Cooper sequin jacket (pictured above) I bought a few years ago. It’s so over the top, but every time I look at it and wear it, it makes me happy.
If you were financially able to do as you please, what would you do to fill your time? Lots of decorating and styling- playing with pretty things.
