Palo Alto Soundtrack

I think one of the movies I've been really wanting to catch in theaters lately has to be Palo Alto starring James Franco and Emma Roberts. The film features music by Devonte Hynes a.k.a. Blood Orange, who I adore. There's also Gia Coppola's involvement, which she's the director of the film. If you know me, then you should know my favorite director is Sofia Coppola. With that in mind, I'm eager to see how Gia's work compares to that of Sofia's. Also, I'm a sucker for those coming of age films. I recently came across the soundtrack about 2 weeks ago and I'm absolutely in love with it. Devonte's involvement brings it to another level and Jason Schwartzman's band Coconut Records is another fave of mine. Blood Orange's 'Champagne Coast' is one of those songs that's so relaxing when enduring a long drive (trust me, I've listened to it so many times driving home from work). I'm also really glad I listened to the soundtrack otherwise I wouldn't have found out about Marc Demarco, who's music is breathtakingly amazing. Thank god I discovered his music, which kept me sane through finals week. Anyway, check out and the soundtrack and enjoy!

I'm hoping to see it hopefully either today or possibly next Thursday when it lands at the nearest Arclight.

p.s. Can we also make this an appreciation post for Mac Demarco? His carefree, IDGAF attitude is such a contrast to his chill music, yet I'm all-around obsessed with him. Here's a mini playlist of my favorite songs from him.

Aymeline Valade at the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Oh my god, can we take a moment to appreciate Aymeline's flawless Saint Laurent suit at the Cannes Film Festival? The blonde, beachy, surfer locks, the impeccable tailored suit by Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent, the subtle flawless makeup....I honestly can't even deal with how she just killed the competition in this look.
 My obsession for this look is so deep that it's come to the point where I want to go back to blonde (unfortunately I'm broke right now and I have a trip I'm planning in two weeks that won't allow me to splurge on myself). Damn, blonde just looks so good on her.
The blonde just softens her face and I think it compliments that gorgeous eye color of hers. I've been a big fan of Aymeline ever since she bursted onto the runway season years ago and I've always been a fan of her androgynous style, which she took it to another level here. It's simply flawless and undeniably cool. That's the key to everything: cool. She's just so damn cool. Style goals for summer 2014 here, I tell yah. She also had a fantastic look at the photocall for the film Saint Laurent sporting a very relaxed, easy look that would otherwise look try-hard on any ordinary human being.
 I adore her makeup look as well. It's so effortless and slightly dewy.
I can't deal with so much beauty. Keep slaying, Aymeline.
