Etch A Sketch.

Cedric Rivrain is a massively talented illustrator that counts so-cool-it-hurts publications like Tokion and Dazed & Confused -- oh, and John Galliano -- as clients.

He recently captured mega models like Kate Moss, Sasha Pivovarova and Anabela Belikova via sketch, all wearing big labels like Jil Sander, Prada, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent and Lanvin.

But instead of drawing the mannequins wearing accessories, Rivrain drew them decorated in band-aids. Yep, like the good old Johnson & Johnson kind.

It's admittedly a little weird, but the drawings themselves are really quite pretty, especially the one of Sasha.

Rivrain just showed his drawings at a show curated by the one and only Martine Sitbon, a great for the already well-known sketchman.

C'est bon when you land Sitbon as a curator!

I'm Lovin' it: Nicholas Kirkwood, you have done it again. Look and weep in joy at some of his Autumn/Winter '09 collection. Warning: these heels are of the sit down and look pretty variety.

I'm Over it: Situations that put you in states of discomfort, especially when said discomfort: a) is not something you feel often and b) comes in the form of an uncomfortable situation. Ever have one of those?? Yeah. Fuuuuuun.

Track of the Day: "Love and let love" by The Gossip. Lead singer (and not-so-closeted lesbian) Beth Ditto has become somewhat of a fashion icon lately, despite her not-a-sample-size frame. LOVE magazine even featured her on their highly anticipated first cover. I'm not sure what I think of her sartorial "it" status, but I do like this song.
