I consider him a genius, a real master of photography. But come back to Miss Cyrus.Everyone consider her too raunchy in her performances, in her video, and maybe that's true. But she is not a girl anymore, she is a little woman or, just like Britney sings, She's not a girl but not yet a woman.And just like Miss Spears and Christina Aguilera, Miss Cyrus pays the fact that she was a Disney Girl.Be a Disney Girl is a real problem, because Disney wants and share an unreal version of girls: perfect, always smiling, and asexual.So when this girls grow up, ...

Trends for fall/winter 2013: British Style

In the fashion world, British style is something very hard to understand and interpret in good way. It's easy, chic, wild and punk at the same time: think to Vivienne Westwood collections.But it's also very classy when it proposes jeans, cardigan, boots and the perfect trench, all together. It's as British style had a indipendent and proud spirit, a spirit that is not ashamed to try new ways but faithful to its origin.If you look carefully trends for the next cold season, it's obvious that British style is an important part of fashion.Jackets, skirts, dresses, cardigans, hats, accesories: everything has a british spirit; i have always appreciate the way how a british girl mixes her clothing everytime with great results.
