Goldie Horn: Personal Fashion















































Dress: Vintage Variety; Shoes: Thrifted Christian Louboutins; Skull Ring: Alexander McQueen; Frog broach worn as ring: Random from NYC costume jewelry; Nose Ring: borrowed from a friend.

Getting a haircut is so much pressure I tell you. And finding your ideal hairdresser is as difficult as finding a perfect bra. It comes around rarely and after years and years of experimentation. In India I had found my soulmate hairdresser in Geeta from Agile Fingers. I always went to her and just sat down in her chair and let her do whatever she wanted on my hair. We experimented like crazy. Now being in NYC for the past 6 years, I think I have finally found my NYC hairdresser soul mate. Heather from Cutler salon in Soho.

Went to her for my cut last weekend and instead of just blow-drying my hair before I left she did this crazy hairdo for me. I love it. And what can I say about this fantastic sexy vintage dress. I am not kidding but I was behaving like a rock star the whole night while shooting in this dress. The dress and the hair just gave me that attitude. Love the nose ring too. I really wish someone would hire me to experiment for magazine styling. I have too many ideas in my head and this is not even the crust of it. Some day I say…some day J

Had a relaxed weekend and watched FIGHT CLUB last night. Has anyone seen it? Do you guys like that movie? I was going “ewhh” too many times during the movie to appreciate the concept. Am still not sure if I liked it or not?

  1. I LOVED 'Fight Club'... but then I have read the book [by Chuck Palanuik] and... I understand the physical need to get down and dirty this way. Hard to explain. I've been boxing/doing some form of martial art since I was a kid so, you know, I love that shit.

    Your hair is wild!!! I'm happy you've found your soul-hairstylist! I don't have one but that's simply because I don't do much with my hair... went to a wedding yesterday and I think I may have been the only woman who wasn't salon coiffed!!! hell. I hadn't even brushed my hair after the quick blow-dry!!

    I LOVE THIS ENTIRE LOOK!!!! Please tell me that you painted the town gold looking like this!!! You look WONDERFUL!! So very Studio 54... and the nose ring is genius. I too wear my indian jewelry (particularly my tikkas) with western styling.

  6. Wow! Epic nose jewelry. Cute dress. I've never seen Fight Club, went to a writers meeting where a 'Fight Club' producer/writer was guest speaker...he seemed pretty pumped up about it and explained why it didn't work. He blamed it on Murdoch. Hehe!

  7. Hej,

    this time you proved the old saying of "Not all that glitters is gold" is wrong.
    I suppose this "chain to the nose" thing comes from your supposed indian heritage?

  14. Oh, you rock! :)
    I agree finding the hairdresser is so hard! Besides there are periods when one works for your taste and your style but then you change and need to find a new hairdresser!

  16. If there are three things that has got be buried with me (I will be cryogenic-ally frozen of course!), it will be a blu-ray disc of Fight Club, a first edition of Catch-22 and you. I am dead serious. No pun intended.
