Coco Avant Chanel

It's no surprise that I love, love, love film. I believe it is such a powerful medium that transcends time and erases all borders. I look forward to those days off when I just curl up on the sofa and watch movies all day long. I am really excited about this film, Coco Before Chanel! Audrey Tautou as Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel will be perfectly enchanting and bring a new life to the powerful woman we've always adored.

Through the Looking Glass

He has done it yet again....
Even though it's going to be a long wait it most definitely will be worth it!

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland

With Helena Bonham Carter as The Queen of Hearts and Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter this film is going to be another Tim Burton classic.

Don't the talking flowers look great?!
Take a peek through the looking glass....

Beautiful Pink Boudoir

Mlle. Frou Frou is a lingerie store owner and blogger {Frou Frou Fashionista} who recently revamped her boudoir into the most luxurious, feminine room that would make any girl's heart flutter.
I love the silk tufted headboard and mirrored dresser. Even her little dog got a cozy pink bed! She used pieces that are meaningful to her to bring out the elegance. Antique or crystal perfume bottles always look gorgeous on display and the perfect added touch of a Tiffany's blue book to create some height.

I personally think Louboutin heels should be on display and so does Mlle. Frou Frou. She has them sitting on top of her book case like the art pieces they are.

Of course every girl needs a drawer for all their delicates. These fabulous bras are all from her lingerie store Faire Frou Frou. If you own a bra shop you're bound to have one of everything!

This sliver vase is stunning filled with fresh peonies {my favourite!} and the icing on the cake is that incredible Louis ghost armchair - yes please!

Vintage Paris

On hazy days like today I wish I was roaming the streets of Paris. Perhaps in an over sized hat and perfectly fitted pencil skirt like these vintage ladies.
These exquisite photos are by Walde Huth. A female fashion photographer from the 50's. Take a visit over to My Vintage Vogue for the most amazing collection of classic fashion photography.

Karl Lagerfeld ~ The Mastermind

Conducting his orchestra of fashion and music on the beaches of Venice. Karl Lagerfeld held the Cruise 2010 show in this lovely Italian city because it is where Coco Chanel went in 1920 to soak up inspiration. This video touched me deeply and leaves me with goosebumps every time...

Arabian Horses

When I stumbled across these images of arabian horses I sat in complete awe for some time. The magic that these animals hold is breathtaking. It's as if they are dancing with so much power and a determined energy. I love how the photographer (Wojtek Kwiatkowski) applied a delicate, almost pencil sketch element to the photos. Click here for his full gallery.

Jenny Lewis ~ Black Sand

Acid Tongue is a great album and this song is one of my favourites off of it! The video most definitely does the song justice. Enjoy!

The Brilliant Tim Walker

I am so excited for my very first post on 'love, jolie' and in honour of that I wanted to pay tribute to an incredibly talented artist, Tim Walker!

Each photo is staged like a timeless film and invents a story in the viewer's mind in an instant. He was once Richard Avedon's assistant and it shows - he learned from the best!

I am so in love with the surreal and unexpected aspects of his photos. Aren't the over-sized pearls fantastic?


And of course it only makes sense that Him and Tim Burton have worked together. This spread was based on Roald Dahl's short story collection "Tales of the Unexpected." As a child nothing thrilled me more than diving into a Roald Dahl book. I think I read The Witches eight times. I would love to see this editorial turned into a movie! How wonderful would that be?
