This... 'stuff'? Oh... ok. I see, you think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select out, oh I don't know, that lumpy blue sweater, for instance, because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise, it's not lapis, it's actually cerulean. You're also blindly unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves St Laurent, wasn't it, who showed cerulean military jackets? And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. Then it filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic "casual corner" where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and so it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room. From a pile of "stuff."

Oh how I love The Devil Wears Prada...and the colour cerulean. You see not many designers are venturing to far into the colour spectrum these days. Its all black and brown with the odd splash of colour however I love the colour blue, I love Victoria Beckham’s original tote. Put them together and you’ve got a winner as far as I’m concerned. The Victoria Beckham Victoria in Electric Blue (or cerulean as the clip rightly points out), is a new addition over at Net-A-Porter and it's just beautiful. I personally would love to have this simply to show off like a piece of art, similar to how Petra Eccelstone does with her Hermes Birkin's. The clutch or "pouch" as the fashion pack like to call them is another piece of art that I would love and its very reasonably priced. Check out that amazing clip from The Devil Wears Prada below.
