Alexander McQueen Beguiles

Cincopa WordPress plugin
I have loved the creative work of Alexander McQueen. Imagine being Sarah Burton, having to step into the shoes of a galvanizing designer. The collection for spring, summer and autumn was simply beguiling. Sarah as many know is not new to Alexander McQueen she worked with him for fifteen years and in doing so has inherited his vision of style, grace and beauty the collection leaving you with the feeling that wearing it one could go frolicking through gloom. The future looks bright for both Sarah and the house as she unleashes her creative spirit with the softening of the signature McQueen edge. Bravo! Sarah Burton MY NAME IS KHAN awaits the riveting adventure of discovery as you apply your craftsmanship and vision of beauty.

Alexa Chung and the sizzle of Bollywood 2011

Cincopa WordPress plugin
I have always liked Alexa Chung. What is about her? it’s that Tom boy, casual, and off course that English charm. After a stint in New York Alexa came back to London and like many in fashion jets back and forth. Alexa is the new face of Superga, the Italian footwear brand. This is a good move by Superga as Alexa radiates that effortlessly casual look, that all Italians exude. Ciao Alexa and bravo Superga.

Ciao Ungaro

Cincopa WordPress plugin

If one is living life then one can always point to a place in some far flung city and say it began for me here. Paris is one such place I can say this about, as can many others. It all began for me in Paris on street lined with maple leaf trees on Avenue Montaigne at an apartment above The House of Emanuel Ungaro. For the last four years I have been watching Ungaro to see where it will go. It has great potential.  Asim Abdullah dished out a small ka-chang, ka-chang $84 million for the company, but it was never about the money it was about the passion to create. Is anyone really thinking big! at Ungaro! British designer Giles Deacon while having gotten some things right just missed the mark with the spring and summer collection. Fashion weeks are not just pretty spectacles, with pretty girls, but can be divine spectacles with pretty girls and pretty people. Giles is artistic and a provocateur. But COME ON MAN! let's get this show at Ungaro on the road. The adventure of discovery in fashion begins with Ungaro at MY NAME IS KHAN.

MY NAME IS KHAN-Vittel Wins Australia F1!

The Australians really know how to put on a great show. Today was no exception, this F1 race had it all, the crash, the rain, the eye candy, all the elements required in order to not have a boring affair.  The Australian I know never have a boring time and Melbourne, Australian F1 was anything but. The paddocks had the usual smell of light perfume and drab industrial stench, with a hint of smoke, and stale air. The grid girls with exquisitely sculpted legs, glowing with almond oil walked off the track and in a blink all mayhem had broken out.

Sebastian Vettel’s Red Bull starting for pole position rapidly and mechanically maintained his lead over McLarens’s Lewis Hamilton by 2 seconds in the first lap and never was in danger of loosing his lead.  The big surprise was the Russian Vitaly Petrov in the Renault finishing third his first podium finish, who drove a strong race. Lewis Hamilton was positive of the teams efforts in his second place finish. ” A week or two ago we were not expecting to be anywhere near the top five.” Fernando Alonso finished fourth followed by Australian Mark Webber. F1 in Australia brings with it the grace, the speed, the danger while nearby fifteen feet wall of water brings its own danger to the awaiting surfer. The drivers in their racing suits sheathed slick as seals, while the surfer appear like half-wave, half-man, the drivers become half-man, half-machine, grafted it seems. The pressure is constant, torque tugging at each limb for both the driver and the surfer. This was Melbourne, Australia. “This is just a taste of what is yet to come as MY NAME IS KHAN takes you for the adventure of discovery.

The team unveiled its new Honda Performance Development ARX-01e LMP1 machine on March 10, 2011 and here they where a few weeks after racing it, wow! is all I have to say, because that speaks volumes for the team. I just love team work, because that is what auto racing is, all the elements have to come together. The Ferrari’s, the Jaguars, Audi’s and Porsche’s   flicked by. Then came the rush, towards the end when the Highcroft team produced a scintillating performance charging to finish second. Strap in as MY NAME IS KHAN takes you for a hurling spin as if helium and hydrogen in space with a sense of adventure and discovery, towards 24 hours at Le Mans.

The time came for the last race it was in Queensland, gold coast, Australia and what a race it was. Anything that can happen in a race, did. There was hail, crash’s, no sound on the headphones from the pits, fuel pumps not working, car’s almost running on empty. It was the day Ryan finished first, and Jimmy second. The Aussie’s love there auto racing and those with me in the pit’s got a first hand feel of what it’s like to be in the middle of it all. Mynameiskhan is going to take you and put you right in the middle of racing this year, so buckle up and get ready for the ride, Hollywood style and the adventure of discovery.
