Steven Klein, Indeed More Than a Fashion Photographer!!!

24 Feb

Catching up on my reading <a pile of 25 magazines to get to>. I was looking at this particular article in a three-year old Fashion Rocks Fifth Anniversary magazine, fascinated by this photograph!

When reviewing magazines, I always look at detail.  The lighting was absolutely perfect.

Every item was clearly depicted in the photograph.  From the ring nose, the rings on the model’s fingers to the wood grain on the staircase banister!

It’s about being able see each article of clothing in the photograph, which was definitely achieved .  S o I am reading the ‘See information’; trying to know more about the photographer, nothing found really!

So, I surf the internet and find out more about him…Steven Klein!  Smiling to myself,  because I knew he really had to be someone BIG;  for the photograph told it all!  Reading about him he is a genius in his own right!  Found out that his photos have contributed to the success of  many celebrities!

From Brittney Spears, Madonna, Brad Pitt to Lady GaGA!   He has worked on many campaigns, high-profile campaigns to be exact,  Calvin Klein, D&G, the late Alexander McQueen;  to name just a few!    Owns his own production company <he directed Lady GaGa’s controversial video Alejandro> and is,  as I always say… on the move!

Yep!  I got all this from a photograph; you’re saying!  It did it’s job, to have the reader intrigued!   Here’s the picture, the clothes are portraying a Paul Wentz look and a few other photos! Fashion, decorating, videos  – all need a creative base to get YOU interested!  I may be late in knowing about him, but  Steven Klein you definitely rock!

Video will only play in YouTube, press YouTube logo at bottom right-hand side to be directed to play..its a great biography of Steven Klein.

What Ya Doing for Halloween?

22 Oct

Halloween!  It’s less than a week away and everyone should have figured out by now your costume, dressed up the front yard and loaded up on all the candy, remember it’s a kid’s dream!

Whether it’s the mummy cookies <* see recipe below by Kelly, they are great>, the pumpkins laughing at you with a glow or the selection of a costume, like my 9 yr. old nephew being Spiderman; consecutively for 3 years now!!!  Halloween is a whole lot of fun!

Is there a haunted house in your area or do you dress up your house like one?  Do you play scary movies like, Halloween with Michael Myers, Beetle Juice or just being silly with your own videos?   What’s your favorite candy of all time? <Reese’s peanut butter cup is mine>.   Next to December’s Holiday season, Halloween comes in second for the most celebrated, decorated holiday; it’s the preparation and the pizzazz!

I am so looking forward to seeing the Halloween parade held in NYC!  I know there will be so many Lady GaGa’s, Avatar Blue people, the infamous Sponge Bob(s) or Miss Piggy(s)!!!!   Whatever you decide to do or be, make sure you have fun.  I always think  that Halloween is just for the kids, even though the grown-ups somehow seem to take over; completely! And teenagers, seem to want the eggs in the fridge; the whole carton with no intention of eating them!

Happy Halloween!

If you ever get a chance to come to NYC in the fall, around this time.. there is a place you must go!  For those who are near, you have to experience it.  Travel north of the city called Westchester County, to a town called Sleepy Hollow!   The town of the Headless Horseman, you know the folk story!  Talk about a Halloween celebration, I cannot describe how much fun is to be had by all!  I’ve been a couple of times and I had a ball!

There’s the Horseman’s Hollow, which takes the tale of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow to it’s darkest measures. For eight October evenings, historic Philipsburg Manor transforms into a terrifying landscape ruled by vampires, witches, undead soldiers, ghouls, and ghosts, all serving the Headless Horseman himself!

The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze is 20 nights of family-friendly fun featuring more than 4,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated Jack O’Lanterns.     And for those who are not familiar with the tale, Master storyteller Jonathan Kruk offers a dramatic performance of Washington Irving’s classic tale, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow!.  Here is the website for more information; if interested in tickets or knowing more about the events. http://www.hudsonvalley.org/index.php.

Still haven’t decorated?  You still have time, Target® has some great decorations with budget prices.  Candy? Walmart® is great too.  If you are baking, the local supermarkets usually have sales on the basic baking items.

Remember, as we get nearer to the 31st, all stores will want to move the Halloween items and if you want to buy for next year; these same items will be reduced 50 – 75% after the 31st!

Wishing everyone a safe and Happy Halloween!  Enjoy!

Boooooooooo! 🙂
