  6. Caroline says:

    You don’t need Jane to tell you that Uggs are:
    1. Ugly (they make your ankles look like tree stumps)
    2. Only for girls ages 12 and under
    3. A stupid trend that unfortunately won’t go away

  7. I love Tina Chow. It’s so sad that she passed away at a relatively young age. Thank you for the article.

  8. RAQUEL says:

    Thanks for the article Jane. Tina Chow looks amazing and CURRENT. That’s crazy.
    IMO UGG is short for UGLY.

  9. RAQUEL says:

    IMO UGG is short for UGLY.

    Beautiful; she has great style… and cheekbones! I love the picture with the layered neaklaces.

  12. Robbie says:

    She’s so sexual.

  13. MJ. says:

    I´m feeling inspired by her…
    (doesn’t the necklace in 3rd pic reminds u to Givenchy´s?)

  14. Princessimp. says:

    Thanks for sharing.
    The picture of her in the trompe l’oeil, with so much jewellery, is stunning.

  15. Alisha says:

    She’s one of the rare examples of 80s fashion being absolutely timeless.
    Beautiful spread– do you have a collection of vintage mags or did you just happen on this one?

    it looks great on her!

  19. marley says:

    i don’t find her being current very important, it just means that we are backwards, no?

  20. Becca says:

    i love the third photo with all the chains – very cool

  21. Mariee says:

    jane , i love you!

  22. flofellis says:

    sorry but Grace Jones could walk all over Tina Chow. Jones was a BOND girl for heavens sake! ‘A view to kill’ with Roger Moore….for those of you out of the loop. Yes….a oo7 flick.

  23. A~ says:

    LOVING the JEWELS! Thanks. Love your blog. Glad to have found you!

  25. Jen says:

    I love the illustration in the second scan!

  26. Mrs M. says:

    Oh I’m so happy to see Tina Chow ! I love her so much and I was so sad when I knew she was dead… Tina Chow was an incredible woman with a style and beauty so “merveilleux” !

  27. zurain Imam says:

    The “necklace” on the dress of Karl Lagerfeld’s debut collection for Chanel (Picture 3) is actually ‘trompe l’oeil’ (trick of the eye) embroidery.

  28. nice jewelery,
    Great work in this site.
    i like your idea.

  29. PragmaticMom says:

    Loved this thanks. Do you have the vogue article of her own crystal and bamboo necklaces?

  30. Yonfan says:

    I am writing an article about Tina Chow. I have one photo she was in Chanel just like the one here in Vogue I wonder you can find a 10mb for me.

  31. Yonfan says:

    Dear Zurain, from your writing you know a lot about the dress I was talking. I need to locate a photo of the same dress but shot in the house of Chanel. Can you help me?
