F1 Pirelli and the curves of Malaysia

Cincopa WordPress plugin
A friend of mine co-wrote a film that she also directed. She sat me down to watch the film in which she had cast a young girl who caught my eye. I asked my friend, “who’s that girl?”, she informed me it was a young actor by the name of Keira Knightley, “well she’s going to be a star”, I said. Karl Lagerfeld the creative force behind the House of Chanel also saw the star in Keira bringing her to the House of Chanel. Kiera’s body can be like the circuit itself, long straights, with challenging curves glistening with sweat beads that could make the driver surrender his focus. This year Karl Lagerfeld was behind the lens shooting the Pirelli calender. If your negotiating dangerous curves, the rubber better hold. It all comes down to how you take those curves, that will determine how fast you rip through the Pirelli tyres. Today another key critical element of racing was being drilled. The pit crews tyre change. It’s hot, humid, ideal conditions for where a a drop of rain could form a river. The focus remains today on Pirelli and the tyre change. Karl Lagerfeld, Keira Knightley, the  pit crews and Pirelli offer us that exotic fascination with the adventure of discovery of F1 on MY NAME IS KHAN.

F1 Malaysia Bravo Pirelli!

Nature, it’s a force with which there is no contest. But we try. Malaysia’s F1 Sepang circuit will present the teams and drivers with endless options for consideration. Similar to those faced by the enchanting women who sashay down Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California. The options are unlimited. The tyre is a critical element of any racing. While the Pirelli PZero had a stunning debut in Australia it is only starting it’s roadshow with F1. Malaysia is hot and humid, the tracks surface is unyielding, it has twists, turns, heavy break areas, straights offering the driver variable speeds to explore all a challenge for the Pirelli tyre. Then there is nature itself, which can throw a variety of elements all of its own.

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.
