Tallulah says NO


NO magazine/the girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Apart from a few shows at London Fashion Week, and a couple of low profile Milan shows, Tallulah Morton's FW0910 season has yet to take off. With the Paris leg just kicked off however, things may pick up (07/03: Morton appeared overnight in several Paris shows, notably Christian Dior and Vivienne Westwood). Meanwhile, here's a preview of Morton's latest cover - the 5th edition of New Zealand's NO magazine, courtesy Kiwi blog The Girl With Kaleidoscope Eyes. Yes that's the cover/editorial that was shot by Mark 'The Cobrasnake' Hunter, in somewhat controversial circumstances, a couple of months back. This is one of two covers of the edition - the second depicting New Zealand actress, stuntwoman and Quentin Tarantino acolyte, Zoe Bell.

I think it's a little obvious who she should be saying no too

haha everytime i see her i cringe.. i dont know theres just something about her.. maybe its that shes too into herself (in real life) and that comes across in her photos. sorr to start the tallulah hate train thing.. but thats just my opinion

@ the first Anonymous,

Ha ha. "Sorry to start the hate train but..."

You're not sorry. You love it. Putting her down makes you feel better about yourself, or powerful or something. That's why you do it.

So either own your bitching and don't apologise, or keep it to yourself if you're really sorry. But don't pretend like expressing your negative opinion is outside of your control. It's not a goddamn weather system.

I don't hate Tallullah. But I feel icky about what she unwittingly represents.

This cover depresses me. The cobra snake on her head, the "NO", as well as the title, "Just a Number". I don't have to explain.

Still, she's a great model. Her personality is no-one's business. I hope she grows up relatively unscathed.

hahaha to last anon youre an idiot.. probably one of her friends.. does it make you feel powerful defending her.. as if your actually doing her a favour. people like you are telling this girl shes all that and how she behaves is appropriate.. in fact how can we blame her when there are people out there like you idolising everything she does! fools!

and was also at Jean Paul Gaultier... a good Paris season so far.. though she hasn't really walked A list shows in the other cities...

Gosh this tallulah bashing is boring. And why wouldnt her friends defend her. I would hope that my friends would do the same.

Anyway Pats lets get on to more important issues, like the big flop of josh goot being dropped by Myer. The definition of a talented designer is one who can design AND sell their garments. xo

hi last anon - there's quite a bit i need to catch up on actually. i've just been tied up with some other work. but goot is definitely a good idea, tks for the reminder. i'm not sure being dropped by myer is such a bad thing. there are brands who have ditched myer because they couldn't stand the discounting that was going on.

Mike said...

When did Myer drop Goot? It was in December when I last saw his hung collection for Spring. Beautiful italian made dresses I have to say. Quite lonely though and anyway it's not that bad for him anyway. I know too well about department stores and they do do the discounting. Where not talking about Barneys here right?

PATTY! I was listening to you on FBI, you made us bloggers proud.

Patty Huntington said...

here's the myer/goot story mike:

and re FBI - it's good to have the opportunity to talk about blogging. it was sweet of matt to think of me. i think there's going to be more and more discussion about new media actually, everywhere. which is a great thing.

Myer might have dropped Josh Goot, but he just hit The Sartorialist.

Stamos

Patty Huntington said...

haha, he did indeed. hilarious that she is wearing gloves - but seems to have bare legs.

Being on the sartorialist doesnt pay the bills, being stocked in stores does.

Patty Huntington said...

tell that to 18th amendment, which has been trying to claw back 500K from the US retail market, from retailers who would not pay. i know of at least one brand which claims to have ditched the australian retail market because they could not get any money out of it - for stock that was delivered and sold.

that shot on the sartorialist (tks for the headsup stamos) is of equal, if not far greater, value than a full page editorial image in an offline mainstream international fashion publication. that is the power of new media. scott schuman is what you call a 'key influencer'.

I'm not so much interested in Schumann's work anymore as I used to (of course when I first saw it) but he does have very significant influence. If you notice his average comments per post by readers isn't it always around 100+ and at lowest 50? I know he contributes to Style.com and people are always asking where they get this or that.
I read the Goot article and on the contrary to this, he deserves a lot more credit. A jersey cotton dress at $900 is something I'm not surprised about and he shouldn't budge on quality, which he isn't. Maybe the Australian market don't feel this is worth paying for his clothes are I feel right for the US and European market maybe say Germany.

"does it make you feel powerful defending her"
