A POWERFUL LOVE, A FORCE FROM ABOVE: ¡o perdita!

Isabella Rossellini as PERDITA DURANGO in David Lynch's WILD AT HEART, which is a film about "finding love in Hell" 
To me, the above is this is the best picture in the world
Perdita appears only briefly in this movie
so I captured what does exist of her elusive and perfect persona…….in these stills………

  17. aisha says:

    gasp. yes. i love that you posted this. i was just thinking about how beautiful she was in this movie today. laura dern was such a knockout too! geez, what a movie. btw, if you haven’t seen “lost highway” yet, i highly recommend it. but, don’t watch it alone because it is scary.

  18. Diana B says:

    Hi there. I’m incredibly envious of your wardrobe and I was just wondering whereabouts in Dallas your from, unless that’s too invasive, because I don’t see many people interested in the labels that you are here. I tend to turn a good number of heads wearing Margiela and Gareth Pugh in Dallas but my wardrobe is nowhere near the caliber of yours!

  19. elizabeth says:

    i have an insane urge to dye her eyebrows
    what does you school uniform look like?

  20. Katerina says:

    yep great,
    I love her character better in ”Blue Velvet”!

  21. OMF GOD, I have always LOVED this movie so much. Steve Buscemi is so terrorizing in it. Lovely.
    and of course those pics were from Lucifer Rising, how did I not notice? It;s funny how images work once out of context. Jane, you’re lovely. Keep your mind and eyes open, your inner guide is a fuckintastic one. Maybe you ought to thank your mom :P

  22. Kiah says:

    I have to watch this… she’s gorgeous!

  23. Legyviel says:

    Jane, sweety! You’re my shoe guru! lol. I gave your blog an award! It’s fabulous :)
    xoxo

    I have some questions for you.
    1. What kind of music you listen?
    2. Do you buy sometimes clothes in second-hand ?
    3. Do you sew dresses ?
    These questions are from my curiosity exclusively and nowhere they will be used.
    Of course I am from Poland so I sorry for my english ;)
