Review: Rescue Me...a short film by Amancay Tapia!

Trying a taste of the new Estrella Galicia....
Some of you darlings might remember me mentioning my good friend Amancay Tapia in past posts....well, a little while ago I was invited to a special private screening for the cast and crew of a short film she has made and directed with the help of a fully star-studded cast as well as fabulous crew! So of course I just had to go along for a peek of my dear friend Amancay's new masterpiece 'Rescue Me' and share it with you darling readers here on my blog. Though I have promised not to reveal too much of the story-line, as the film is currently being submitted to a film festival, I can indeed share some bits of information about the film and what happened on the night of the private screening.

Amancay Tapia's work on Twitter: 

'Rescue Me' is an admirable short film about the European economic crisis and offers an artistically symbolic view of the impact it has had on vulnerable lives. Focusing on two ladies Laura and Elena working hard to make a living for themselves, it demonstrates the gripping blow when the European economic crisis hits them as well as their families. The vivid contrast of lives of people in London is striking, and the emotions evoked from the actresses as well as actors are thought provoking even after the credits have long rolled past. With the talented and star-studded cast including Lindsay Armaou from pop group B*Witched, Tallulah Sheffield from 'Dorian Gray', James Hender from 'Fraternity' and David Warren from 'Skyfall'.....'Rescue Me' is definitely one short film to look out for! Inspired by the truth facing many people across Europe and written with passion by a female award winning director listed on the 'International List of Living Women Directors'; Amancay has successfully raised funds for this project through 'Kickstarter', receiving lots of support over Twitter demonstrating how this is a story that needs to be told, and completed the film with pure determination.

Besides viewing the highly anticipated new masterpiece from Amancay, it was also a chance to mingle with the fabulous cast and crew of 'Rescue Me' as well as get together with our group of lovely friends. The evening went really well and all the guests buzzed with excitement in congratulating everyone involved with the project. So I sincerely look forward to 'Rescue Me' sweeping away some awards in the near future....the very best of luck Amancay! On a different note....I shall be looking forward to an exciting weekend at the Chap's annual 'Grand Anarcho-Dandyist Ball' in the grade listed Art Deco Bloomsbury Ballroom (London), as well as an end of term dance performance with my ballet and belly dancing classmates. Have an absolutely fabulous mid-week my darlings!

Until the next time,
May xx

How-To: Do 1930s to 1950s....a Vintage inspired twist to glitz-up your evening look!

With only three days to go before my vintage themed birthday's all getting a little exciting and I am still finalising my 1920s Great Gatsby inspired look in my head! So I thought it might be helpful to think about building other vintage looks too...just in case any of you lovely darlings are attending a vintage party or in need of any inspiration!

To me, the real glitz and glam began in the 1920s but evolved into a deeper feminine state towards the 1930s....which carried on through to the 1950s because of an addictive fascination with the glamorous silver screen. The 1930s was not a trouble free decade by any means, as the Great Depression and WW2 began broiling in the backdrop of society. But with all the unrest came an opportunity for many to sooth their sores in the world of cinema.....and so the age of the silver screen sirens began captivating the world! There were shifts in day wear becoming more practical as WW2 shook the world and fashion seemed to have halted f…

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

Qipao Love: Part 8 ~ Qipao on the silver screen.....

The film that actually made the Qipao (Cheongsam) a frenzied fashion trend in the West, with dress patterns suddenly appearing for the public to create their own version of the style, was actually the American production 'Love is a Many Splendored Thing' (1955) with lead actress Jennifer Jones ...but the British production 'World of Suzie Wong' (1960) is often more remembered with the greater display of tightly glamorous Cheongsam dresses in every scene, the scandalous nature of the character's profession and lead actress Nancy Kwan's Golden Globe nomination. Just in case you lovely darlings may be wondering...I am indeed devotedly fascinated by the Qipao, as many of you can probably tell already, and I also found it interesting how this beautiful garment is depicted in different films on the silver screen...which is why this is Part 8 of 'Qipao Love'. Though this is a long list of beautiful films featuring the Qipao, each is unique with its own percept…
