The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo

Loosely based on the life of Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Evelyn Hugo is a big breasted beauty from Hell’s Kitchen. Escaping a life of penury with her alcoholic father, she’s desperate to fulfill her late mother’s dream of movie stardom. Having little to no acting ability, but tons of ambition, she lies, cheats, spreads her legs, and uses people to an Oscar win. Evelyn is a complex character playing the hand dealt to her, deeply aware of flaws she never claims to be a saint, but a survivor. Willing to do whatever it takes, she changes her identity, discarding her Hispanic roots to fit into overtly racist Old Hollywood. Now, at the end of her life, she decides to spill all her secrets to a relatively unknown writer. Evelyn gives Monique Grant the rights to her life story via memoir, to the confusion of all. Why Monique?

The chapters are titled by each husband, but which was the love of her life? This book deals with: sexism, sexuality, identity, family, death and time. Time wasted, time spent, time you can never get back.

On GOD this book is worth ALL the hype. Evelyn Hugo is such a phenomenal character, she jumps off the page right into your heart. One of the most memorable, well written protagonist ever. Finishing the book made me miss her. I’m trying to write this in a manner that gives nothing away, but it doesn’t do the story justice. Taylor Jenkins Reid is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers. Read this book, it’s epic. Via: The_Booktrovert_Artist


Marlene N’ Jerry

Came across a picture of Marlene Dietrich and was like damn…she looks like Jerry Hall. How have I never realized this? Naturally I went down a k-hole, discovering Jerry’s intentionally channeling this glamour OG. She understood the assignment, by homaging and not hating on the icons who came before her, but making it her own. Which set is your favorite?

Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2020

Glamour at all cost, no matter where you are, no matter what you’re doing. I love this couture collection. Can one wear these dresses without feeling themselves? There’s no way. The body is adorned by these garments. It’s giving me modern Studio 54 and Old Hollywood all at once. You would sooner catch me on the beach in that gold dress with boots, than wearing sweatpants in public. Personally I rather be done up than under done, LA casual is not the vibe for me. Which look is your favorite? Do you prefer comfort or would you prefer to suffer for a look? Via: Fat Anna Wintour

Ellery x Duran Lantink

Absolutely obsessed with this dress, casual glamour. It looks like an updated classic, something Old Hollywood stars would wear if they were time warped into the now. In a deconstructive way the top portion of this dress reminds me of a mini leather jacket over a gown. Like if Holly Golightly was making a fashion statement while arriving at a party she wasn’t necessarily invited to just to cause a stir, but looking as though it was a stop along the way of a better event.
