Beautiful Boys

This is 19-year-old Australian model, Andrej Pejic. Andrej is a male model. Yes, that’s right, you read me correctly. Signed to Storm modelling agency since last February, this 6″2, blond hair and blue-eyed beautiful boy is the latest up and coming model to pioneer the growing androgynous trend in the fashion industry. In hot demand, Pejic has already walked for Jean Paul Gaultier, John Galliano, Paul Smith and Raf Simmons.


“The photographers seemed to like my look. They talked about the extreme androgyny and commented a lot on how thin I am. At first everyone thought there must be a blonde girl doing all the men’s shows. They asked Raf Simmons if he was doing women’s wear now. They figured it out eventually.”


Andrej currently models for both menswear and womenswear.

I wish I had his eyebrows….

Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester Bares her Derriere on the Red Carpet

Does it get our attention? Yes. Her publicist must be patting the back of her stylist right about now for this little fashion PR stunt. Sporting a black lace see-through Marchessa jumpsuit, Leighton Meester showed up to Harry Winston Court of Jewels cocktail launch party in New York and caused quite the commotion. While most journalists are calling the outfit unflattering and bizarre, I think they’re envious that they don’t have such a lovely bottom as Meester. I admire the actress’ boldness in choosing the unusual Marchessa creation and her shining confidence is the perfect accessory (along with that adorable little bag). One gets very bored of seeing the same old mini dresses on celebrities. MessyNessy likes a girl that wants to take risks in fashion.

Here’s a look at some of Leighton’s other daring red carpet looks from the past… (p.s. it’s all about the confidence…)

Other Red Carpet Looks That Caught My Eye this Week…

TomBoy Girl

It’s been six years since Tom Ford designed a womenswear collection but he’s back with a bang designing a stunning line of clothes, this time for his own brand, Tom Ford. I can’t help but instantly think of the late Yves Saint Laurent’s eclectic style when sneaking a peak at these newly released photographs from the collection. Both the campaign and the clothes emulate the style of the legendary designer. As it turns out, that’s exactly what Ford was going for.
“There’s a continuity from what I was doing at YSL at the end; that’s the customer,” Ford admitted. “It’s about individuality. Real clothes, real women. For a fashionable woman aged 25 to 75.”

Fourteen year-old Blogger Tavi Becomes An Editor

Child fashion prodigy, Tavi Gevinson drops our jaws once again as she lands the role of editor alongside industry legend Jane Pratt to launch her own magazine. Followers of Tavi’s blog will know that the little fashionista has been raving about an 80s cult magazine called Sassy, the very magazine that her new partner Jane Pratt, founded. While many stories are circulating that Tavi is relaunching the teen magazine, the young blogger sets the record straight.

“Of course, it won’t be Sassy (or the rebirth of Sassy, or Sassy 2.0) and nor do we want it to be,” Gevinson explains on her blog. “For one, you can’t try to recreate something that good. For another, while I can read old issues of Sassy and relate, the world has changed a bit in the past 15 or so years, and that whole internet thing happened, and this world calls for something different.”

To imagine what Tavi’s upcoming magazine might be like, here is an except from her blog earlier this year in which she talks about why she admires the magazine that folded two years before she was born…

I have a bit of a request, my dear friends. I, like many, would like another Sassy Magazine. I cannot claim to have read it in my days of youth, so excuse me if I sound overly whiny when maybe some other people who are reading this miss Sassy way more than I do….Sassy was awesome. It called out celebrities and politicians for being assholes, educated its readers on politics without sounding biased, and focused on fashion in a way that was unconventional. It was lipstick feminism for teenage girls, covering sexist issues but not discouraging having fun with makeup or caring about boys. It included R.E.M. records as opposed to the perfume scents of today’s teen magazine pages.
