Muses Ain't What They Used to Be

"Anna Karina is a Danish-born, French actress who was the muse of the director, Jean-Luc Godard." 

A dull description of an essentially dull doll, but Iconista likes the idea of Anna Karina because she's so Nouvelle Vague, bless. Looks-wise, Iconista puts her in a similar category to Natalie Wood and Audrey Hepburn - cute. It's not a good category unless you want to get laid, or adopted. But enjoy. Three pictures were all Iconista could bear before nausea crept in. 

Iconista is willing to concede that this is probably the coolest dance scene ever.

Little and Often

A trying week for Iconista, not without its highlights although, having come within a whisker of running down a cyclist and a pedestrian in her two-seater, she has decided to dust off her chauffeur. But, before she goes to blow away his cobwebs, she'd like to share today's sweetest finds.

Last night, Iconista dreamt she was in love. What a strange sensation. She pities the poor mortals prey to such emotions during their waking hours. Love is best kept for dreams; though a heavenly sensation, it would be most distracting - like balancing a glass of champagne on one's head. Smoking is a far more practical solution to the internal abyss. With a cigarette in her hand, Iconista craves nothing.
