Notice anything different?

I’m smiling in my picture today-CAUSE I DON’T HAVE BRACES! Friend me on my Facebook (new to it, not many friends :P and talk!

You can’t see it in this picture but Michelle Lamy (Rick Owen’s lover and former designer herself) has a gnarly grill! It’s part of her look I think, which is cool…mine never looked as good. Check out those bangles! Knicked the picture from the fabulous Diane Pernet (

Michelle Lamy has really cool style, I wish there were more pictures of her. My mom used to wear her clothing label a lot but doesn’t have any of it any more-she says it’s extremeley similar to Rick Owen’s slinky knits from his Lillies line. Perhaps she is more influential on Rick than she’s given credit for…I want to know more about her, her style is superb.

    i was so happy when i got mine off last month but now i kind of miss them…

  2. I remember seeing another photo of her and Rick together and you can totally see her full golden teeth smile, it’s amazing. I’m surprised she doesn’t have her own thread on The Fashion Spot.

    ummmmmmmmmmmm, there was a whole pictorial about her and him in vogue,,, maybe british?? a few years back. she was a redhead….so this pix is confusing me….they were already living in paris….she talked about how she had to wear his line everday, and how no other clothes worked for her.

    I just wanted to let you know that I credited you on my blog because I wanted to share the pictures of Rick Owen’s apartment with my readers as well. It was very cool to see. Keep up the good work

    I have such a soft spot for women who stack heavy bangles to their elbows. I can just imagine the clicking and clacking that happens when they rest an elbow on a table, or make a narrative gesture with their hands!
    PS You love margiela shoes, and so do I. I happen to work at a small shop in SF that stocks many of them and we’re at 50% off right now.

    congratulations on getting your braces off! I had mine for 5 years, it was horrible.
    As for Michelle Lamy, there was a great article about Rick Owens in the last stile issue of The New Yorker, I might have some scans because I loved it so much.

    Isn’t that Gareth Pugh beside her? Wonderful, i love your blogs a lot. Your mother seems such a wonderful woman. What does your family do for a living? x

  16. Yeah, only a few people can pass off wearing braces as cool. Maybe they had a few bling blings attached to theirs, though I don’t know if that is even possible (for celebrities, perhaps). Or maybe their bands matched the color of their eyes, haha!
