mka love!

The number one thing on my Christmas list right now?

Influence, the coffee-table book compiled by the Olsen twins featuring interview from the likes of Karl Lagerfeld as well as personal photos of the twins.
I've already detailed my love for the Olsens, and well, I'm absolutely gushing over this book. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

An excerpt:

KL: [N]owadays you start to model because you're young. Now the girls are sixteen, seventeen, fifteen, and Russian. They are like from another planet
AO: They can look very bizarre!
KL: I hate all these tall women. They are all giants!
MKO: If only I were a little taller — that would make me happy!
KL: You are one meter fifty-one. You are taller than that?
AO: We're five feet and one inch.
KL: Oh, I thought my office told me that you were four-foot eight or something. Not that it matters. What you need is a face. If you have a face you don't need height or a voice. Models know this; that's why the good ones don't need to talk much.

I'm gushing right now - you can't get much more awesome.

...Is anything on your Christmas list yet?

Seems like a fun read, and bound to have some sweet pictures. Nothing particular on my Christmas list, yet.

alright, so KL has got to be Karl Lagerfeld. Only he can say such crazy things and still come off as awesome. LOL. my copy of their book should be on it's way to me right now. if you go on amazon it's super super super cheap! =)
