Theda Bara: The First Vamp of the Silver Screen

Hollywood has always loved a beautiful woman and there have been MANY stunning women who have illuminated cinema goers for over a century. But who was the very first screen siren? Well that honour goes to Theda Bara (her name is an anagram of Arab Death), in her, was an exotic femme fatale who could […]

Tatiana Gerusova: Procurer of Femme Fatales

Few people can resist the charms of a Femme Fatale. The red lipstick, stockings, garter belts, high heels, black gloves (or just lots of black in general), it is a timeless and powerful image.  A deeply fetishised appearance that never loses its intended impact, so if you can find someone who can capture this dangerous […]

The Leopard’s Spots

Coveted Bag: Yves Saint Laurent Uptown Bag

As a petite woman, it is impossible to not be aware of proportions and being ‘swapped’ by huge shapeless bag that make one look like you are a child playing dress up. At 28 I am simply too old for that shit! So the YSL Uptown bag hit the mark as far as being proportional […]
