Ms Michonne In Style

The time is upon us! New York Comic Con here we come! And while everyone else will be showing up to  NYCC with arms full of...well, comics; I will be breaking tradition --and being me-- by showing up with... a fashion mag.

Yup, that's right. "Why," you ask? Why will I be showing up to a comic convention clutching the October issue of InStyle?

Two words: Danai Gurira a.k.a The Walking Dead's resident zombie slaying bad-ass: Michonne

I've never been much of an autograph person. Especially since more and more celebs are keepin' it classy (not) and charging for them. However, much like classic headshots, the simplicity, and elegance of these images, along with expressions of sheer joy, beg her signature scrawled across them. Possibly with "XOXO". Maybe even a red imprint of a kiss, as if receiving the work of a young starlet of old Hollywood, of whose fan club I was president.

Absolutely stunning and chic on an almost profound level (I was left stunned, speechless and needing her autograph for goodness sake), I want to fill a wall with a framed set. This is Michonne like we've never seen her.  Sure, we're used to seeing her in jeans, a wig and brandishing a katana. But make no mistake people, in designer duds, she's a whole other level of bad-ass cool.

The ENDitorial: Karlie Kloss and Daft Punk, for Vogue, Aug 2013

Evening looks go futuristic fancy / space-age sparkly in this stunning, widely talked about editorial for the August 2013 issue of VOGUE featuring supermodel Karlie Kloss, and world-renowned French robot duo, Daft Punk, who wear Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane throughout.

"Where to wear these out there outfits," you wonder?

Worry not, as the editorial pairs Karlie’s looks with potential parties and events, for inspiration or early planning.

I dare say, I wouldn’t mind rocking these frocks come New York Comic-Con. Tres chic geek, no?
