Pink Kitty

Remember that you can never have enough pink beauty products. I believe there are over 5 million shades of pink out there, why not have them all?
When the Hello Kitty x Mac Cosmetics line was announced, I knew I had to get the most poppin’ colours. I guess Mariah already has the full line, she is such a Hello Kitty fan.

Pink Kitty Shet

Also watch the commercial below, where the model crawls through fluffy pink wormhole. Not sure what that will remind you off?

micro blogging

Received a pink laser cut silk scarf made out of circles from the Margiela spring/summer collection 2003 in the mail today. New with tags. Stunning.

English lesson of the day:
The ‘pen’ in ‘penalised’ can be pronounced like the ‘pen’ in ‘penis’.
Can you use it in a sentence, please?
You will be penalised.

If you are in Canada, CTV is now streaming a couple of TV shows for free, like Lost, Desperate Housewives, Degrassi, etc. No Gossip Girl, though.

Think Pink

On Sunday, after another exhaustive party night at S, we watched TV and caught the last 40 minutes of the musical Ein süßer Fratz (Funny Face) directed by Stanley Donen (Charade, Singin’ in The Rain) in 1957.

The famous Avedon portrait of Audrey Hepburn

Having missed the first part of the movie didn’t hurt at all, maybe it was even funnier starting with the scenes where Audrey Hepburn’s character is modeling for a photographer played by Fred Astaire on location in Paris. The lightning and setting of the photo shoots, which were consulted by Richard Avedon, is fantastic.

The Office

At times, the German dubbing of the movie was stilted which only added to our amusement:

Dick: Wie sehe ich aus? (How do I look?)
Maggie: Du siehst bedeutend aus. (You’re full of pizazz!)

Maggie, the fashion editor of Quality magazine is the 50ties version of Anna Wintour, inspired by Diana Vreeland, fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar in the 1930s. According to my dictionary, pizzazz is said to have been invented by Diana.

Now, after I’ve seen the movie on DVD, the first hour is not to be missed, especially the first 5 minutes. Maggie enters the office, let’s all her assistants come to her desk and proclaims: Think Pink!

This is followed by fireworks of pink sets:
