Yu Aoi - Aug Calendar 2009

I love dinosaurs! LOL

I don’t really buy fashion magazines though… xD

but their photoshoots are very pretty. =D Yay for pretty photos!
not all photoshoots though, some are rubbish…
but Fashiontography is nifty! See more Fashion and Photos!

There’s an interesting article on the with former Marie Claire editor Liz Jones talking about why she’s fallen out of love with the mags she once loved.

Here’s an interesting excerpt;

Take the shoot in Kerala, India, in the June issue of British Vogue: in a region where most people live on less than $1 a day, there is Daria Werbowy in a £3,690 cotton dress by Yohji Yamamoto and a silk/linen ballgown by Ralph Lauren costing £9,500 – the little children used as obscene accessories.

Even the more downmarket, mainstream magazines relentlessly push clothes very few of their readers could afford. In Grazia is a silk dress by Gucci costing £3,600, and a few pages later we find the most ridiculous garment of all: a red snakeskin-trimmed jacket by Louis Vuitton costing £7,400.

Though Yohji Yamamoto is pretty crazy awesome. LOL’

Anyway, you can read the whole thing here.
Really, do read it… here’s another quote to get you interested!

I spoke to one beauty director of a big British glossy, and she told me that she can ‘never be critical of any of the big brands. You can say that my job is, really, to write press releases for them. Only tiny, boutique brands with no advertising budget would ever be given a bad review in my pages.’

And this is why independent rules. LOL’
[insert YAM plug here]

Yes, do read YAM! – Issue005 is coming up soon!
if you wanna contribute, send in your stuff by the end of this month!

We pay for our own stuff… so we don’t feel bad when we trash them.
and we love it even more when we love it!

by the way! Have you joined our Facebook YAM group?

it’s less than a month for YAM005!

I’m excited, haven’t started laying out content but have been checking drafts.

Some *very exciting* stuff in it, I believe…
I do hope people that have agreed to write stuff begin sending their stuff in ^^
