Lucky You, Another Horn Toot

I think I’ve definitely exhausted documentation of the Lucky Magazine March Blogger Spread but this is my blog, I can paint it any color I want. Today I’m painting red on red for repetition. Hooray! So here I stand before you once again, tooting the horn that represents my ego. (That said, did you catch the title’s Lucky pun? I slay myself.)
As I said while getting dressed in the below “boy meets girl” ensemble on the day of this shoot, “I look like a chic Middle Eastern version of Ellen Degeneres.” The stylist looked at me dumbfounded, perhaps somewhat insulted. I so obviously meant it in the most complimentary way possible. White Stella McCartney separates? If they had gentials, I’d consider symbiotic procreation.

Before I continue, a special thank you goes out to Lucky Magazine for dubbing me “one of the most hilarious voices in fashion.” If you think my voice is funny you should take a look at my gesticulations. Talk about a knee slapper. Punny.

And…moving on. I’m not usually one to wear much make up so this was an interesting experience for my eyelids and I was quite pleased with the results, if only because the man behind the blush brush kept squirming in his Italian accent, “I am the makeup artist of Anne Hathaway. Oh may Gohde! You looka juste like her!” ‘Twas a highlight indeed.

More fun tidbits from the shoot included getting really well acquainted with Jane of Sea of Shoes, Kelly from The Glamourai and Rachelle from Guest of a Guest.

Jane, Kelly and I spoke granny panties, latex, banana swirl fur and spent a great deal of time trying to figure out if anyone knows what The Knight Cat looks like.We hear you’re beautiful, Cat. Please show yourself.

Take a peek at the rest of the spread here.
AND OMFG! Don’t forget to enter the Rebecca Minkoff Fashion Show Ticket Giveaway.

    Haha! The better part of my closet can be classified (at best) as man-repelling, and one time one of my friends remarked that they don't see many Middle Eastern women in fashion, looked at my sequined drop-crotch trousers, nude platforms, and feather cape and mused, "but maybe there's a reason for that." (I'm half-Iranian)

    whatever. THEY JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW FABULOUS WE ARE.

    looking fab. p.s. your knight cat link is wrong. thought you might want to know. or you could be misleading people so that we are forced to read only your words of wisdom…which is cool, too.

    you look so hot that you should stop calling yourself man repeller and renew your contraceptives. and btw i'm reporting you to greenpeace and so on that the enviroment's degradation is all your fault cause all those flowers ur gettin!

    "I'm loving oversized shirts and structured blazers." Seriously. Could magazines quit using that line on people? It's like every chick they quote in Lucky is "loving" two disparate-therefore-perfect-together clothing items. There's nothing repellant about that ruse and I'd be shocked if you told me you actually said that (you didn't… did you??). They should have just quoted you for real. THAT would sell magazines.

    Wow .. that's quite a lot of makeup! But you do look great either way. Some of us just scare little kids when we wear no makeup ( D: ).

    PS. that's a compliment to you, because you don't scare little kids… just men… but that's on purpose.

    Really enjoy your blog. So true that men and women don't see eye to eye when it comes to women's fashion. Your look in this shot is great.

    Wow! The eye make up makes you look very very DIFFERENT. Not in a bad way, just…different. You look like you're about to hit the bowling green. What could be better? :)
