- Visual Journalism Student/ Photographer/Fashion Blogger. I love finding beauty where others don't, and I believe art can be found almost everywhere. Old and new, we can learn from all, and getting to a place where you can realize that is probably the most freeing a person can feel ever. But basically I love Fashion, and the designers are the artists with visions and their canvas' are us and the world, and I love helping spreading that message. "Ultimately isn't that fashion is about? We're all a bunch of big kids playing dress up." Feel free to e-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about anything!

Ok, So apparently I'm behind on my "Style Icon" family tree research because I have just recently been brought to the attention that THE Steve McQueen has a grandson, whose name is STEVEN McQueen, and he's already in the Hollywood spotlight. He is on the CW's Vampire Diaries, which I have not watched, so therefore maybe a hint to why I don't know who he is...UNTIL I saw that FLAUNT Magazine (which did not have the profile on their website, but oh well. =/) did a profile piece on him.
Anyway, now that I've been informed of this possible/hopeful passing down of Classic Style through the genes of McQueen, I will now be on the lookout!

Is the "Marching/Military" jacket trend that has been sweeping the Fashion World by storm these past few Seasons going to become a Classic piece or is it already?
The concept of the jacket itself seems to have been around for a while, even when Michael Jackson was first blowing up into a Phenomenon, he was sporting the trend in the 1980's. He also kept the trend going up to his recent death by wearing the new modernized version that which most know about now from Balmain.
I honestly think that Balmain is the one to receive credit for modernizing the jacket into such an Iconic piece for the Millennium and Michael Jackson for bringing the trend to the spotlight over his time of reign as the King of Pop.
In Conclusion. I DO truly believe that this will be an Iconic piece for both Men and Women to go down in Fashion History along with the Burberry trench and Thigh-High Boot.

UA GAMEDAY, HOMECOMING
I was given the opportunity by myScoop.us to take photos of girls with Great Game-day Style on a University Holiday. I had a GREAT time doing it, and I felt like UA's own Sartorialist doing it. If this is what lies ahead in my career, I am completely be ecstatic. People in Fashion Journalism are completely different than those in the News Industry, and I LOVE IT.
Thanks again to my GREAT FRIEND, Grant for recommending me for the job, and to Marina Battles and Amy Bailey who trusted me to do a good job!!!
Here (below) are some of my favorite snaps from yesterday!
(I also ran into a Fellow UA Fashion Blogger, Elizabeth Hunt, who has impeccable style, (as you can tell from the photo), and here's her LINK! Check it out!)

Megan Fox could maybe in the running
to take over the world in 2010.
Making her a household name after
Transformers I & II and Jennifer's Body,
Megan will be the new campaign model for Emporio Armani previously
modeled by Posh (Victoria Beckham).
So it looks like Megan will be proving herself
in the Fashion World soon.
But, it's not like the Fashion World doesn't
already love her so it shouldn't be too hard.
The Campaign will run in 2010. (TheCUT/NyMag)

Megan was also recently featured on the cover of
