'WE FOUND LOVE IN A HOPELESS PLACE'

I know that music is a powerful inspiration for the fashion industry, Rihanna's new single- We found love in particular moved me, so much so that I felt I had to post about it. I love it for two reasons, the first is the introduction to the song and the overall way it affected the way I listened to the song, without hearing the introduction it's just another dance song and the second is the music video. I feel like it's so strong, for its cinematic appeal, it's style really evokes our emotions it shows the good and the bad of their relationship, which helps us understand the torture they feel and also because there are moments within this music video that targets us all in a way whether we smile, or we feel their pain inside ourselves, because we have all at one point or another, felt that way with someone we love.

It's like screaming and no one can hear
You almost feel ashamed that someone could be that important,
that without them you feel like nothing.
No one will ever understand how much it hurts.
You feel hopeless, like nothing can save you.
Then when it's over and it's gone,
You almost wish that you could have all that bad stuff back
So that you could have the good...

Watch it here...

STYLE ICON: OLIVIA PALERMO

Who is the fabulous Olivia Palermo?


Age: 25


Who's the daddy? Olivia's mother is an interior decorator and her father is a real-estate developer.

Where's the money? Family money meant that Olivia was a shoo-in to the mercenary world of Manhattan society.

Interesting fabulousness: Short-lived reign as New York's new It-girl, she now gets the sympathy vote for having been the subject of so much bitching.
