This is some ah-maze-ing dresses by Amato Haute Couture . I have never heard of this designer until I saw this on Haute Macabre. Turns out they are out of Dubai and only do couture gowns, but really they need to move their ass to Paris and sign up (it’s like signing up for a badminton team, right?) to be part of Couture week there. I see some Gaultier and Givenchy in the dresses, but it’s still uniquely gorgeous. And nude is my new favorite color- It’s like only you’re lady parts are covered in jewels and the lace. I also like how the dangling baby makes for a sprinkle of madness. Anyway, I am totally going to keep Amato on my radar.

French artist Elene Usdin uses beauty with a touch of creepy for most of her work. I really enjoy her art only because my mind goes into twisted territory from time to time. No need to worry ,though- I’m current on my meds. Those stuffed legs are what’s NOT right. It looks like a curious case of the mysterious cankles. Then, you realize it’s just a stuffed leg. Being a Lego fan, the Lego machine gun is pretty sweet. After seeing these, I totally want yarn hair. I’m gonna have to give my Yaki-braids a backseat, because yarn is where it’s at, obviously. Check out more of Elene’s work here. Don’t miss the ladies sandwiched between mattresses. That will boggle your mind!.

Brooklyn photography duo Kat + Duck have some visually striking work that are both dramatic and chic. I love the huge half circle on the model’s head in the last photo. She just needs a carrot hanging from the tip and be a bunny. Or in my case, hang some delicious fried chicken at the end. I’d run all damn day! Be sure to check out their site,especially the ‘Rorschach Test’ photo shoot with a model serving as the ‘ink blots’… pretty damn cool if you ask me. I also dig the Russian-style splash page.- Kra-si-va-ya*!

*That means “beautiful” or something in Russian. Seriously, I learned that from a mail order bride.

Latvian fashion stylist/designer/illustrator Baiba LaDiga latest series include a creepy bunny (that looks kinda robotic and animatronic- actually Chuck E. Sleaze would totally adopt that one) running around the ‘hood looking for someone to harass for carrots. I really love the jacket with the poufy sleeves- so Victorian! That Chinese sign is totally throwing me off, though.  Here are another set of photographs by Baiba LaDiga ….

These are ‘The Birds’ series with dresses designed by LaDiga. Those are plastic strips on the dress so naturally a pleasant snap and crackle are heard as you walk. Pretty cool, huh?

Check out these photographs by Finnish artists Gilles et Dada! I’m digging the blurred vision theme. At first I thought I had low blood sugar again and grabbed some toffee. (Yes, I eat an old man’s candy – toffee.) But after a brief sugar high, I realized it’s the picture that’s not right…not me. Anywho, my favorite is the nose and mouth running away from that model’s face. That’s what happens to me I smell chocolate within a 100 feet radius. Kinda reminds me of that alien in Alien… Maybe not.  Imagine if you could erase your mouth or better  yet, other people’s mouth. That would be the invention of the century! It’s kinda like Hello Kitty, I guess. No mouth=no trouble. Check out Gilles et Dada’s site for more work and a shop selling t-shirts.

Photographer Iain Crawford must have had an ‘aha’ moment at  Home Depot’s paint department. This is such genius! So beautiful, yet… toxic. In all seriousness, this is really cool and I love love love it. Check out Iain’s site for more cool stuff. Iain’s  (is it a lady? is it a man?) work can be seen in many fashion magazines and campaigns, including Lancome, Virgin Atlantic, and British Marie Claire. Excuse me while I try to recreate these looks with a toddler pool and some finger paints.

Stylist Robbie Spencer and Photographer Richard Burbridge did a men’s fashion spread in Dazed Digital recently focusing on “War Heroes”. Even though I don’t really pay attention to men’s fashions, I really like these photos. I don’t quite understand the baby limbs on the face, but I’ll go with it. Maybe it’s representing the exploding mines and the limbs thrown out everywhere and so a couple limbs got stuck on the dude’s face. Or something like that. I really like the red licorice coming out of the general’s mouth. So metaphorical. Having said that, I think I’m gonna Netflix Inglorious Basterds again…
