Que Sera, Sera

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be pretty, will I be rich
Here's what she said to me

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be

Carine Roitfeld, Editor in Chief, French Vogue

When I was young, I fell in love
I asked my sweetheart what lies ahead
Will we have rainbows, day after day
Here's what my sweetheart said

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be

Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief, American Vogue

Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother, what will I be
Will I be handsome, will I be rich
I tell them tenderly

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be

Emanuelle Alt, Fashion Director, French Vogue

Past meets Present, Part 1

The present is constantly borrowing from the past. Fashion, art and music are all known for finding inspiration from practices and trends that were created at an earlier date. Enjoy a couple of iconic photographs while looking fondly on the editorials that either consciously or subconsciously borrowed from them.

Helmut Newton Private Property 1992
Newton lightens up an otherwise erotic look with a pair of over sized bunny ears.

Natalia Vodianova photographed by Alastair Mclellan for Russian Vogue
Vodianova looses the leotard but keeps the tights. Louis Vuitton's bendable bunny ears become her and leave us dreaming of the early 90's.

Richard Avedon Portrait of Sandra Bennet 1980
Avedon's haunting portraits from his series documenting the American West will forever be remembered as photography at it's very finest.

Peter Lindbergh Kate Moss 1994
Always one to make anything look chic, whether it be heroin or rural America, Kate Moss' overall clad portrait by Lindbergh is just about as recognizable as Avedon's one above.

'You pick a place that's where I'll be'

'...if I lived 'til I'm 102, I just don't think I'll ever get over you'

'Let's find some beautiful place to get lost'

'They will see us waving from such great
Heights, 'come down now,' they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
'come down now,' but we'll stay...'

Here Comes the Bride

Ding, Dong! Ding, Dong! An unlikely assortment of brides storm the Couture & Resort runways in get-ups that make us want to scream, 'I do!'

"Going to the Chapel of Love"

Lanvin Resort 2010/Alber Elbaz had a whole heap of fun with his beautiful brides - one donned sunglasses and a sloppy slogan tee while another showed off her legs and rocked a veil that was fixed to a flirty straw hat.

"If I'm the man you love the most you can say I do at least"

Givenchy Couture 2010/Designer Riccardo Tisci modernized the traditional bridal frock by adding harsh headpieces, trouser pants and lace ups booties. White was magnified and veils were as long as could be.

"We got married in a fever"

Phillip Lim Resort 2010/Lim offered up a mini lace number for a more understated class of brides - it's delicate, timeless but also super sexy. You gotta love a little leg!

"Da dum da dum da dum da dum"

Elie Saab Couture 2010/Each of Saab's 46 looks could have been sent directly down the aisle following the show. Sequined rosettes where adhered to sheer white fabrics, lengths were played with and shoulders were accentuated, draped or made asymmetrical. The unconventional was mixed with classic choices, guaranteeing to make any a bride-to-be happy, happy, happy.

Bad Boy

Good girls love bad boys - it's the fleeting attention, wild nights out, waiting for the phone to ring and silly suspense of it all that make many girls agree: when it comes to boys, the badder, the better.
The infamous Sid Vicious poses with girlfriend Nancy Spungen.

My So Called Life's Angela Chase happily neglects her good girl ways for Jordan Catalano.

Put Kate Moss next to ex-beau Pete Doherty and she comes across pure in comparison.

A notorious 60's pairing - Mick Jagger & Marianne Faithfull.

Lindsay Weir is willing to stray from her morals and ethics for only one (very bad) boy - Daniel Desario of Freaks and Geeks.

Musette is having a moment...
A Johnny and Kate moment.

We accept that Vanessa Paradis is incredible and Jamie Hince is positively dashing but let's admit that it doesn't get any more red hot than Johnny Depp and Kate Moss, together.

Jump straight back to 1994 by remembering the coolest couple of the time, hands down.

Hats off, hugs and kisses - Musette will always love the two of you.

Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair

A black and white arrangement - found only at Chanel.

The original Flower Child, Joni Mitchell.

Daisy Duke? Nope, it's Farah Fawcett!

A floral headpiece done right at DVF.

Frida's fine selection.

Where have all the flowers gone?
Girls have picked them every one
When will they ever learn?
When will they ever learn?

Musette Look of the Week

Chloe Sevigny in Chloe at the Veuve Cliquot Manhattan Polo Classic
It was a beautiful day on Governors Island, New York last Saturday and Prince Harry himself took to the Polo field, however Chloe Sevigny was the day's surprise success. Dressed in Chloe head to multi-strap peep toe, this blonde bombshell teamed a straw hat and round sunglasses with her cream shorts suit. It may have been an unorthodox choice for such a high brow event but sometimes standing out makes the world of difference. What can we say? Chloe in Chloe will always win the match.

Biker Chic

In terms of getting around, it doesn't get much cuter, more fun or sensible than hopping on the seat of a vintage bicycle. Fill up the basket and ring your bike's bell - your body and planet will thank you for it.

An extensive range of irresistible photographs prove that Audrey Hepburn was a bicycle devotee.

The Sartorialist has inspired many a ride by posting photographs of biking passerby's.

Find the monogrammed Gucci bike a tad tacky? Go for the Chanel version instead - it's far more understated and comes with a bag, how practical!

The Selby reveals that Erin Wasson's hot wheels are on the ready for a last minute outing.

"I ride my bike, I roller skate, don't drive no car
Don't go too fast, but I go pretty far
For somebody who don't drive
I been all around the world
Some people say, I done all right for a girl
-Melanie Safka
