Distraction: Rudolf Nureyev + John Galliano

When it comes to the dancer Rudolf Nureyev I am not unlike a twelve year old girl with an irrational crush.... professing eternal love to a wall of collaged magazine clippings, a tear-stained issue of Tiger Beat clutched to a pre-pubescent chest... I admitted to my infatuation many moons ago (see August 19) so imagine my irrational happiness when I learned that my favorite dancer had inspired the fall 2011 menswear collection by the always inspiring John Galliano.  While I'm not sure I can pull off the bound-conical-triple beard, I'm willing to give it a go in the name of Nureyev.

Nureyev was one of the few men who could successfully and convincingly wear that Russian peasant look without it looking completely like a costume. Fortunately for us, his appreciation for decor was as strong as it was for fashion; his apartments were as chic as they were personal. (I worked out the new layout of the antique wallpaper from his apartment in The Dakota that a Dallas client had bought at auction).

You are absolutely right DC! Nureyev's impressive sense of style was apparent in his homes as well as his clothing.

RayBan サングラスに関する具体的な連想はありません。しかし、もし想像力に任せて、いろいろなことに考えるでしょう。例えば、幽霊がレイバン RB2140をかけて、人間を脅かすこと、地獄にレイバン メガネを売る店が見えること、レイバン ウェイファーラーが一番よく売れることなどたくさんあるでしょう。
