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………

    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!

  23. 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
