Hope you all had a lovely Easter Bank Holiday Weekend (I love saying that: Bank Holiday Weekend. Don't ask me why, it just cracks me up). It's funny that people associate Easter with chocolate, to me, it's all about pastels: bunnies & spring flowers and Lauderee-esque macaron colours. To that end, we have rented Sophia Coppola's excellent Marie Antionette (I read somewhere she showed her production manager a box of macarons - or perhaps, since she lives in Paris, they were in a bakery - and said 'I want my film to look like that.' And it does).
But because it's an in-between time - streetstyle shooting wise - I'm still not seeing people in pastels on the street. Take this girl at the Tate Modern, for example. Just a quick two shots when we were with a friend in the member's lounge. It looks like very dull colours but look again: she's tossed together a whole range of purpley brown jacket, mustard top under, the green of the wellies.. I am loving this palette at the moment PROVIDED there is a pop of bright: preferably neon. Orange, purple, lilac, periwinkle, turquoise, hot pink.. something like the bag on the woman near her.
I think that's why we're so into nail polish right now. Either that, or lipstick. I'm not a dark/bright lipstick girl - never was - so it has to be nails for me. But that's for another post (just curious: which are you? Or are you both?)
Anyone do anything weird or wonderful this weekend?
