Speaking of Dresses


In all my days I will not have the pleasure of wearing art as Emily Blunt is so fortunate to do on the pages of Vanity Fair this month.


I know it is not where our heads are supposed to be right now, but I can't help but gaze in awe on these creations.

At the very least it cuts the gloom.

Ms. Blunt is wearing dresses by Dior Haute Couture in both the top and middle images and Armani Prive bottom.  All images Vanity Fair, May 2009.  Photographs by Michael Roberts.  To see the complete slideshow click here.  The combination of the subtle aqua and blue and white always reminds me of the late Roger Banks-Pye.

Like composers, I'm always amazed at the inspiration.

Good heavens above! What gorgeous dresses -- yes -- you are right -- these are works of true art! Breathtaking (and I'm not talking about the corset!)

Happy Chocolate Bunny Day!

Oh, how stunning. All the more reason to dig deep and dress up for some sort of worthy cause. Makes me think of cinderella and glass slippers.

Sigh....I thought the same thing when I say these delectable creations!

Cinderella didn't know she had a shot, either. Never give up hope.

You would wear one very well, indeed.
