I have no idea where he came across this printed outfit of a bucolic countryside that looks like it came off of your grandmother’s china plates, but there you have it! -and it’s definitely eye-catching…I guess the bag and shoes are to make it all fit in the same color family?
I love the false modesty of a semi-transparent turtleneck dress. The bandeau top swimsuit was a smart choice for underneath it, and since she’s at Le Bain she could even go in the water if she wanted…but with the detailed makeup and hairpiece I doubt that happened.

Lately I am super hating the meatpacking district in New York. It has long lost its tranny loving edge along with Florent, the best restaurant to view the nightlife provocateurs. But as we all know, New York City neither sleeps nor stays the same – so when I ended up in the ‘hood with the brilliant and lovely pop star* Natalia Kills and our mutual friend Alex Catarinella we ended up doing an impromptu photo shoot which plays with both the old and new meatpacking district.
Natalia’s in the middle of recording her sophomore album with producer Jeff Bhasker (who has also worked with Beyonce, Kanye West and Lana Del Ray). I have no doubt that it’s going to be s!ck. This girl is witty and wicked and has style for days and this comes through in her songs like the infectious “Kill My Boyfriend” (Check out the video at the end of this post!)
And a few things that rock Natalia’s world:
Food- I love macarons. I definitely have a sweet tooth and the ones from Laduree are classics!
Drink- Earlgrey Tea in the day, Lychee Martini at night
Recent song or album- Zebra Katz “Ima Read” and the new Garbage album “Not Your Kind Of People”
Book- Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palaniuk
Artist- Gwen Stefani.
NYC spot to go out- Tuesday nights Westgay at Westway is wild
NYC spot for creative inspiration- The glass window bridge on the Highline.
Vacation/getaway spot- Paris
Indulgence- Walter Steiger shoes
Fashion designer- Alexander Wang… I love every collection
Article of clothing- My Chole Sevigny dress
Go-to cosmetic- Eyeliner
Favorite thing about being a popstar- Airplanes. I love flying more than anything else in the world…
Historical time period that you never experienced (and why) 1960 to late 1970s because those were my Grandma’s glory days. She’s my idol.
If you want to see more images from our night out check out the gallery below. I also want to give a shout out to Le Bain at The Standard NY as the exception to the rule of the meatpacking district. Especially Jordan Balanchine’s party ZigZag where we shot some of this. (before we got kicked out…but that’s another story!)
*Pop star is not meant in any way derogatory. This girl is a pop star. And an amazing one at that!
I recently spent a night out with Natalia Kills and our mutual friend (and her bestie) Alex Catarinella. It ended up as an impromptu photoshoot. All pix ARE HERE!
I saw my favorite ballet boy out with Sophia the other night. They were by far two of the better dressed in the meatpacking district – an area that is really becoming a stomping ground for people who take fashion tips from housewives and Kardashians. They don’t recognize truly good style when it walks right past them… no worries, I do!
Yesterday it occurred to me that I use “the F word” a lot. NO. I mean alottalot. Not that that’s unusual in my circle nor do I normally care…but then I was subjected to a monologue (disguised as conversation) with someone I can’t stand and realized every other word she said seemed to be fuck. And she just sounded like a cheap poseur. So in an effort to make sure I don’t sound like that I decided that everytime I say fuck I have to put a dollar in a jar and that all of it would have to go to…MITT ROMNEY’S campaign! How’s that for an incentive to reign in the F word? But when I saw Bobby and Judson at Le Bain last night I had to shoot them with this Fuck Off sign. I have no idea what they were doing with it but I’m thinking: maybe I should carry one around NYC and flash it instead of say it. Of course I’d probably come across as a crazy mute…oh and I already owe Romney $26! !kcuf
