Dare To Balance


Do you ever feel like you are trying to balance a million things at the same time? I know, I do! Therefore, when I saw this Vogue Nippon (March, 2011) editorial, I just had to post about it. Balancing a bird cage on gigantic hair whilst wearing Alexander McQueen? Check! Ever feel like sailing away? Sure, why don't you just balance a boat and you will be battling the seas. With not a hair out of place, obviously! To the High Seas, I go! Just like model Karmen Pedaru in this editorial.

I am a not good at balancing things. I tend to walk around like a headless chicken most of the time. But this editorial shows me that you can be good at balancing and still look perfectly coiffed and oh, so stylish. Of course, you have to take everything I write about with a pinch of salt (I won't be walking around with a bird cage on my head, any time soon), but it's the sentiment (and the clothes & styling, of course!) behind this editorial that I love.

After Vogue Paris, Vogue Nippon is definitely a magazine of great inspiration. Are you good at balancing everything together? And are you this fashionable whilst doing so?





So, now I am off to blow dry my hair, and pack for the weekend and try to find something snazzy to wear on Saturday night, and and and and and....... hmmmm, I really need to work on this balance thing.

Great post!!! It feels like women are often expected to naturally be able to balance many things at one time. But I think that this is a false expectation, as I am horrible at it!!

XOX,

reminds of china when they balance 100x their weight on a bike.

haha :)

Well, that's your job as a model.
sometime they have to wear some couture collection
(you kknow a "strange" dress with "strange" accessories too) so they have to have a good skill
in this balnce thing.

and about this editorial, what can i say??
since this S/S 2011 Fashion week especially during Milan Fashion Week, Karmen Pedaru totally blew me away, and this is why Anna Dello Russo use her as Nipon Vogue Editorial's model.

lol:) i don't have idea about my balance, but i have my yoga routine thought..
so maybe my balance is good enough

à la Modest said...

This is on Vogue Nippon? Amazing. I wouldn't be surprised to see hats made like that, but that would defeat the purpose of learning how to balance!

I could so never be a model (for many reasons) as I could never do any of the crazy stunts/balancing acts/contortionist poses they need to do!
