Jacqueline said...

These are stunning, Deej. I love the black and white ones. I can't really pick out a favourite as they are all beautiful. The first one is like a portrait.
On a sad note, isn't it dreadful about Alexander McQueen. He must have been suffering terribly. He was so talented...a genius they are saying.Really sad. XXXX

Erin said...

Total Gorgeousness! I wish I could wear those dresses to school! That won't be happening, though.

Mancini's music is divine.

ethelmaepotter! said...

Oh! The first portrait! I could hardly bare to scroll down and view the others, for the first is dreams personified. I tend to be quite critical, but I can find no fault with that photo; the pose is classic, the mood exquisite, that froth of a hat - OH!...the mass of waves of dark hair blowing in the breeze and the blurry garden in the background - this is pure romance!

Jessica said...

phenominal moving photography! I love the model with the hedge clippers, I'm sure she has a long resume of yard work under her belt!

FrenchBlue said...

OH MY GOD!! Those hats are the BEST thing I have seen in a very very long time. They make me smile and so happy!! Thank YOU for sharing as I always say to you THE BEST!!!!!

Jan said...

The feathers in the hair are brilliant. Wish I'd seen these before our day at the Races recently, I have a gorgeous ostrich feather which I put on my hat, but it wasn't nearly as fabulous as these.

Jacqueline said...

It's me again !!!!!!
Just wanted to thank you for your comment on my post for Renees birthday, Deej.
Often, people don't comment on those sort of posts so many thanks for the support.
Enjoy Sunday. We are going with the family and friends to The Royal Albert Hall to see The Cirque du Soleil. XXXX

Torie Jayne said...

Wonderful pics, fabulous feathers! Happy Valentines day x

Clarity said...

Fun and frivolous. My favourite has to be the first in powder blue - stunning and timeless.

As for Jessica Stam, she reminds me of a modern, skinny Jean Harlow, especially with the eyebrows.

Hope you're well, x.

Kelley Anne said...

So dramatic! I love the one of the girl with the butterfly net.
