Prada SS09

Shot by Steven Meisel. Not digging these because they feel way too much like Meisel’s work with Dolce & Gabbana. It’s less obvious in his single-model portraits (ie: Sasha Pivovarova’s first campaign with Prada), but Steve M loves group shots of models staring intently at something while laying around collectively. Prada SS09’s campaign feels so blah compared to some of the last few seasons’.

Here’s one of my fave campaigns, also shot by Meisel. Dolce & Gabbana, Fall/Winter 07.

Iron & WineWoman King

hundred years, hundred more
someday we may see a
woman king, wristwatch time
slowing as she goes to sleep

Boys Before Flowers, episode 23

Episode 23, AKA the episode where there was a lump in my throat half the time.

The Jandi I adored from arc one is back! I’m not some sort of feminist nazi who expects all girls to end up alone, happy by themselves, independent of all companionship, self-sacrificing all the time all the time ALLTHETIME, but it’s so nice to see the Jandi who once again sticks up for herself and doesn’t take insult after insult.

The writing for the crucial dialogues were handled with finesse (or more finesse than usual, lol). But I think the directing for those scenes could have been better. We get what purpose the lines serve, but I wish the actors were told to soften their performances in those (or maybe just Gu Hye Sun). But even then, I feel the convos between the ships really hit the spot.

All in all, this is my fave episode since the second arc started. Whoopee!
