"Lip my stocking, Mr. Harris!"

Lost in Translation has got to be one of my most favorite movies. Not only is it directed by one of my favorite and most fashionably sensible directors to have ever shunned Hollywood for the better sartorial environments of New York and Paris, it's got a subtle humor that not all people can relate to. Charlotte's backside as the random first scene? Good. A Japanese man randomly named Charlie Brown? GOOD. Random "entertainment" girl sent up to Bob's room playing coquettish? ABSOLUTELY GENIUS. It's the helter-skelter regardlessness that gets to me.

That's what's been inspiring me as of late (nothing could be better than a Coppola film to stir the senses). It's a good thing I've decided to resort to revoir-ing my favorite films this week; I've been mad sketching and working on my portfolio in an insane fashion. Oh, but I love it.

'HEY. LIP MY STOCKINGS'
'HEY. Lip them? You want me to lip them?'
that movie has got to be my favourite. It's both beautiful and hilarious. Bill Murray is a genius.

I knowww, right?

I think American Vogue's Summer resolution is to get more of the mini-Supers to grace their covers.

I'll be on the lookout for the likes of Carolyn, Carmen, and a number two from Liya! Ugh, they better!

I lovvve Lost in Translation. Everything about it is perfect-the soundtrack, the setting, the comic timing.

And I love Bill Murray.

The whisky ads are hilarious!

The sketch is amazing, by the way!
