Isabella Blow's film

Then again, comes my apologies for not writting, but my head's somewhere else... But anyways, I always think about my blog and how I should be updating it instead of wasting my time watching Glee and Modern Family. And besides, there are no highlist to blog about and instead of posting lame stuff I rather NOT blog.

But of course, there's always something to write about Alexander McQueen or Isabella Blow, two of my favorite fashion icons in the whole world and it's amazing the legacy they left.

Now's Izzy's turn. Filmmakers are working on a movie about her and her life, based on the biography "Isabella Blow: A fashion life", written by her ex-assistant Laura Goldstein Crowe, which is coming out in November 9th (the book). Anders Palm (swedish filmmaker) is paired with Goldstein Crowe, she's going to be a consultant for the whole creative and filming process. Also Philip Treacy and John Galliano will be collaborating with the movie. It's unclear if they are gonna be part of the crew or the cast.

André Leon Talley reported weeks ago that Galliano was gonna play himself in the movie and that Treacy was going to be the one in charge of picking the right actress to play the role of Izzy.

Let's wait and see... First I'll get the book, then read it and then I'll see if the movie's ok or what. I'm worried that they might give a wrong impression of my goddess.


  1. There is lots of stuff to write about! I'd like to know what your impressions/favorite collections were on Spring 2011...

    Anyways, I'm sure your thrilled with these upcoming book & film! And I myself am a little bit excited, let's hope it doesn't get too destroyed by commercial claws!

  2. i have to make my "reviews" from all fashion weeks... at least from my favorite designers.
    and i'm dying to get this book! hopefully i'll get it for my bday.
