If You Obey All The Rules You Miss All The Fun ~ i-D Magazine Fall 2012

I adore Karen Elson.
She is spectacular.

And she has spectacular red hair.
Karen Elson, i-D Magazine

She's clever and articulate

In the Fall 2012 issue of i-D magazine
the amazing Daniele and Iango photograph Miss Elson
in one of their completely arresting, spellbinding editorials.

Karen gives sound advice about being an elegant, mischievous woman who isn't vulgar:
"This woman doesn't name drop -
she is the center of attention
without being desperate for it"

Besame, Besame Mucho

Some days can only be salvaged
by kissing 
in black and white.

“Our love of each other was like two long shadows kissing without hope of reality.” Anais Nin 

 A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
~ Ingrid Bergman

 If you are ever in doubt as to whether to kiss a pretty girl, always give her the benefit of the doubt.
~Thomas Carlyle

A kiss that is never tasted, is forever and ever wasted.
~ Billie Holiday

sweet kiss

Kiss me,
Kiss me and tell me everything,
will soon be okay,
Kiss me slowly
One more kiss to keep me,
The kiss of passion
 ~ Maria Luisa Taylor

 Always kiss your children goodnight, even if they're already asleep.
~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

besame mucho
como si fuera ésta noche
la última vez

Besame, besame mucho
que tengo miedo a perderte
perderte después
