is it just me or is everyone else falling in love with raquel? raquel zimmerman's been around for quite awhile, but i've never really liked her. in fact i think i disliked her until she started appearing in the fendi ads. and now she's really all over the place, especailly in these magazine editorials. cover of v magazine, a new w magazine shoot with suvi, regular at vogue.. etc. really, i had no idea she could be this good.

V magazine photographed by David Sims
W photographed by Craig McDean
on to other things..
love, love, love vlada's outfit.
and onto some stunning art from chris jordan.. really stunning.
a print of seurat's sunday on la grande jatte..
... with 106,000 aluminum cans! the amount used every 30 seconds in the U.S.
what is this?...
426,000 cell phones that are "retired" everyday in the U.S.
and last but not least
$12.5 million, the amount that the U.S. gov spends every HOUR on the war in iraq. eeek.
much more on you should really have a look.
and the photographer from coco's numero shoot is Solve Sundsbo :)

i've never liked raquel that much. she's beautiful and a talented model, but I somehow don't enjoy looking at her. her new photoshoots are good though.
loved the post!

The post really touched me.

The companies really must do something about the technology they produce and that war must stop right now. Bush is not a good president, he doenst want to make peace at all.

A kiss

PS - Raquel Zimmerman is amazing and thanks for your comments about the perfums! I will decide soon about my new fragrance!

Isn't Raquel ancient? She's been around forever. I fail to understand what is unique about her.

Interesting post about Chris Jordan. I love art with a message.

I feel like I've already seen her. That might be because I saw a picture of her elsewhere. But the point is, I'm trying to say that she looks kind of redundant.
