to fashion it's normal to have something like a style icon someone who we just love for being outrageously well dressed. without input there is no output is what i always say, if you want to be creative you need to have inspiration and dressing is (for those of us who care) a way of being creative. i'm not having only one style icon but there is one persone who i would kill to meet her once (crazy i know) ... CHLOË SEVIGNY i think she totally rocks. after watching her in KIDS i was impressed and start watching some more movies in which she appeared. i wouldn't say i'm obsessed but i like to see how she is dressing. ok back to virtuality i thought about stardoll style icons and try to think if there is a doll which has the same importance to the development of my medolls style like sevigny has for my personal style. with the posts GRAPHISME 1 and 2 i already presented some wonderful dolls having a style which totally blows my mind but i wouldn't say they are style icons for me. wandering throught the memories of all my SD experiences and i remembered one doll which showed me how to be different on SD and to not care about the hype or trend but to believe in your very own style:
kreatura, age ?, slovakia
when i joined SD for the first time (yes i had an account befor A_Horror but i deleted it so no need to be curious haha) i was a bit lost. this side was so huge to me so many members and no idea how to start, but when i found kreaturas suit it seemed like i had finally arrived. i know maybe i'm taking this too serious but being new on SD and not being invited by a friend is pretty much like being the new kid in school. you need to figure out who you are and on which table in the cafeteria you want to sit at.
what makes her sytle so important to me is that it seems to be influnced by the 60's, 70's and 80's like a big time travel using clothes as transportation but it never occurred to look like a chaos. you could find this kind of style out in the streets of stockholm or oslo maybe london but it is hard to find it on the streets of SD and above all she was the first doll i saw who seems to try to create somekind of a indiepndent style (using stardesign to create joy division and clockwork orange tees and not harry potter or twighlight shirts) that impressed me. when i rejoined SD 2009 the first thing i did was checking if kreatura still is a member.
she hasn't been very active the last months thats why you can't visit all of her rooms (above you can see a room inspired by the music video for THE WHITE STRIPE'S song seven nation army) her absence is kind of sad as SD has not so much dolls this unique and creative and sadly i never got the chance talking to her because i was way to shy, yes i know stupid me but to keep her work alive i just thougth of doing this post to show her to all my readers.
and some more examples of her amazing taste in fashion. (i hope that doesn't sound arrogant but) you see at the end of the day even i needed someone who helped me developing my medolls style but i never copied. that's pretty much what i'm trying to say having an icon nevermind if in- or outside of SD is not a problem. it can help you to develope your own sense of style but coping doesn't bring you closer to a unique appearance. you may check kreaturas suit even though she hasn't been online for a long time it's worth a glimbse anyway.
