☛ “Rhapsody” is Kelly’s fourth book, and the inspiration was the popularity of her blog “My Vibe, My Life”.
Kelly’s blog is a personal journey full of everyday-beauty, dazzling design & hidden treasures.
In her new book she is offering us a small sneak-peek of her glamorous world,
taking us behind the scenes, and showing us the essence & inspiration of her fascinating work.
Only 250 RHAPSODY:Limited Editions were printed,
each numbered and housed in a gold perforated cover.
☛ David Downton is one of my favorite fashion illustrators,
and the reason is really simple – he is one of those people who still believe in beauty & glamour.
His lavish Haute Couture illustrations are legendary, and his portfolio of portraits (from life) of some of the world’s most beautiful women, including Erin O’Connor, Paloma Picasso, Catherine Deneuve, Linda Evangelista, Carmen Dell’Orefice, Iman and Dita Von Teese, are more than breathtaking.
In 2007, David launched “Pourquoi Pas?” the first ever journal of Fashion Illustration.
Many of the stunning images in Masters of Fashion Illustration have not been seen since they were first published.

like entering the temple of some ancient Egyptian pharaoh.
This place is still full of magic & grandezza, taking us back into the exquisite & private fantasy world of YSL.
Yves Saint Laurent’s Paris duplex on the Rue de Babylone has long housed the trophies of a four-decade hunt for inspiration.
In February, those treasures will be auctioned off by the late designer’s partner, Pierre Bergé.
Au revoir Yves… we will always remember you.

☛ Twenty years ago I bought the first issue of Vogue magazine, And the reason why I did it was Gianni.
The Versace advertising campaign shot by Richard Avedon, featuring Nadja, Christy, Claudia, Cindy and Stephanie has left me speachless.
It was the most stunning & inspiring thing I have ever seen. From this moment it was absolutely clear – my life will be dedicated to fashion.
Gianni was my hero, my “Le Roi Soleil”… and I still miss him every single day.
(Gianni Versace / 1946 -1997)
