your muse  
Most fashion designers have a muse, women who inspire them to create their collection for the next season.
They have something outstanding, something mystical, something that makes them more than just an ordinary woman.
A muse is considered to be a hero in the past, the present or the future.

such asCollapse )

If you had a muse, what would she be like? Or who would you consider to be your muze if you had to choose one?
What would her lifestyle be? What would she drink, what would she love, what kind of personality would she have?
Tell me everything about how your living inspiration would be like, would look like, how'd she dress like.
Show me photo's of people, male or female, who she could look like.
I know that this isn't the first post about what person inspires you,
but I am asking you to tell the story about how your hero would be, if you could create her like you were a god yourself.

[edit: for as far as I know, and I come from a fashionschool, we spell muse like muze, but I'll correct it anyways.]

She's been really volatile in the world of style and I love that. I love how you either love her or hate her. That's really important in the making of an icon. She's sassy and interesting and she makes you think. A dash of glitter, a little bit of punk, cutesy glamour and a whole lot of attitude. There's just so many facets and so many things to go off on! I definitely use her as a muse for getting dressed in the mornings.

this is an awesome idea for a post :)
i have a ridiculous amount of muses.

firstly i would have to agree with one of the first posters on this thread, & say max rafferty of the kooks. his style is absolutely his own; bohemian indie with an edge of "tramp", but he carries it off amazingly because he's just gorgeous!

secondly, would be mary-kate olsen. no one else has her style either. every picture of her is just gorgeous, & whatever she wears she looks amazing.

finally, my brother's band I-KOMA, not just for their rock-indie fashion style, but their incredible drive and passion for music. they are all inspirational to me.

whenever i design things i never have someone in mind. i always draw what i think i would want to wear, and put it onto the paper, and eventually it will be realized in three dimensions.

so, i guess i'm my own muse.

When I write, I have a different muse for each major character - usually someone in real life who interests or fascinates me in some way. These could be friends, or acquaintances, or people I don't know at all.

As for everything else...

From a completely superficial perspective and going by pure aesthetics, I am inspired by pixie-ish faces that have a slightly strange or ethereal quality mixed with equal amounts of haughtiness and child-like charm. Coco Rocha, Jessica Stam, Iekeliene Stange, Du Juan, Katie Braatvedt, Bruna Tenorio, Jeisa Chiminazzo, Mona Johannesson, Caroline Trentini, Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchette, Bjork, Kaya Scodelario, Natalie Portman (in The Professional) and Tami Stronach as the Child-Like Empress (Neverending Story) etc. come to mind.

I don't think I've ever just had one muse who inspires me in everything I do, create and wear. They change from time to time and range from yé-yé girls (Françoise Hardy, France Gall etc.) to Edith Piaf, to golden age starlets, to film characters (especially the women in Wong Kar Wai films), to deceased persons from centuries past, to people in my life and so on and so forth.

I think the two that have been most consistent are my grandmother between 1950-1980, and Maggie Cheung in Wong Kar Wai's "In The Mood For Love".
