London x UK:Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London [More London]
The most breathtakingly, heartbreakingly beautiful exhibit I have ever seen in my life. After having watched his collections on video, looked through the tiniest details of his dresses from high quality pictures, memorized each show name by heart, it was such an honor to see the collections in person at the exhibit at the V&A. From the legendary flower dress from Sarabande to the bejeweled dresses from The Girl Who Lived in a Tree, I stood in the dark, cool air and held my breath, unable to bridge the gap between dream and reality. The room dripped with jewels, dried flowers and magic, and for a moment I lived in a world of fantasy and haunting beauty.
Congrats on your fanniversary! My two years'll be in the fall-- crazy how time flies! Prompt for ya: Fitz and Jemma at a fancy pants dinner "somewhere nice" (in Seychelles or otherwise) but they just can't seem to keep their hands off each other.
awww fanniversary! what a perfect word for it! and I remember when you joined us - we’ve been so lucky to have you. <3 Anniversary Drabble 4/10. Rated light M. FitzSimmons. 3x22 canon-compliant, Seychelles.
The restaurant at the sand’s edge was lit with muted strings of electric lanterns, a live band and singer serenading the guests. Most of the women were wearing dresses and bejeweled flip-flops, with some men in blazers and others only in their shirtsleeves, in keeping with the beach-adjacent atmosphere. Guests were encouraged to meander onto the sand after their meals, although most just enjoyed the tranquil view from their seats.
Jemma held daintily onto Fitz’s arm as their waiter led them to their table, her buzz from their afternoon imbibing having long since worn off, and felt rather like she’d stepped into a fairytale. Having always wanted to be swept off her feet had been something that occasionally warred with her own inherently practical nature. When she was younger she used to fight against it, but as an adult, she’d long since learned that it was perfectly acceptable to be both analytical and romantic. Fortunately for her, she’d also found both qualities in her best friend, although she hadn’t realized quite the degree that he embodied the latter until recently. His own proclivity towards literal thinking notwithstanding, Fitz was excellent in sweeping Jemma off her feet - both literally and figuratively.
Cast off the feelings you felt, as if they were a garment, the color of which does not suit your taste anymore. Dress bejeweled, over your temperment, which is dazzling, and see whether or not the stars fall to touch you, and your enemies smile and bow.
Li Bingbing attended at the premiere of ‘The Sea of Trees’, hosted during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Saturday (16th May) in Cannes, France.
Her baby-blue Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture intricately embellished gown had all the makings of a fairytale with its enchanting embroidery, alluring silhouette, and the sweeping beauty of the half-ballgown skirt and train.
She accessorized with a Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch and statement blue earrings, which were a bit unnecessary given the bejewelled dress.
