For the last few months I've been hinting around about my "New Look" Well today I'm happy to announce that the fabulous Alexandra Valenti will be giving us just that. She's shooting our 2011 lookbook. You may know her from the fabulous photos from The gorgeous Sisters of The Black Moon site. Here are a few of her photos and you can see her gorge website here. I've been wanting to share but things have been a little hectic in case you haven't heard. http://alexandraintheforest.com/
Me-Photo By Steven Arnold 1989 L.A. Weekly Boudoir Queen Photo Taken by Steven Arnold 1989 A few days ago I received an apology about snarky remarks left on my blog. Just as I thought a certain person put this unknowing person up to it.This is part of the ongoing harassment I've had to endure over the past few years. I'm not going to post the letter. I thought it interesting she mentioned she thought my designs were clearly inspired by early Alexander McQueen Designs. I thought this would be a good blog topic and a chance to talk about my true mentor.As much as I liked Alexander McQueen I can say without a doubt he was never an inspiration for Boudoir Queen designs. Steven Arnold has always been my inspiration along with the Art Dolls. Working with Steven was the most creative period of my life thus far. I love the photos below and I even see some Gaga in his Luminouos Procuress movie. Photo below-Steven and Dali
A fabulous client of mine who lives in Sydney wanted a custom Boudoir Queen dress to wear to a fabulous wedding this spring. She liked the recent off-white pearl encrusted bustle and the matching dress we had listed on ETSY. We both agreed the the off white would probably not be appropriate for a guest to wear to the wedding. Below is the fabulous dress and bustle. Story continued below<br> <br> After several discussions Inger told me that she loved the colors teal and red and adored the vibe of the THEDA BARA Cherry Bomb Jacket and Cloche'. Below<br> After a good nights sleep I woke up and thought why not revamp the off-white Dress and Bustle and go full tilt Theda Bara Cherry Bomb style? So we did and I'm glad we did . It's gorgeous! Inger, I hope you have an amazing time at the wedding. I'm certain you will be the best dressed guest! Special thanks to the BQ Team! Comments are welcome!

During my teenage years I grew up in a small town in California. My best friend's boyfriend just happen to be Michael Lockwood. We had some great times together and I have to say he taught me a lot about music. At the age of 17 he was listening to everything from Mick Ronson to Marilyn Monroe records.
I ended up moving to Los Angeles and becoming a Make-Up artist and Lisa Marie was one of my client when I worked at Bruno and Soonie in Beverly Hills.
Now the two of them are married with twins.
Funny how life turns out huh?
Stay tuned for a blog on my famous assistant from my Bruno and Soonie Days.
Lisa Marie Presley and her husband, rocker Michael Lockwood, are now on double diaper duty.
They "welcomed two baby girls on Tuesday, October 7, by C-section at 2:46 p.m.," her rep confirms to Usmagazine.com. "The babies weighed 5 lbs., 15oz., and 5 lbs., 2 oz."
Adds the rep, "The babies and mom are happy and healthy and resting at home."
