La abogada del diablo y otras espeluznantes historias / The devil ´s advocate and other scary stories
Don´t be fooled by her looks, Maria José Cristerna´s clients are neither serial killers nor satanic sects bosses; this 35 years old Mexican lawyer represents women victims of domestic violence. Mother to four children, she had her first tattoo done more than twenty years ago. She says that she doensn´t feel uneasy about some disapproving eyes. "If you want to be respeted you must respet others". A sensible statement from someone that breaks any aesthetic conventionalism and whose fashion style does not fit into the dress code of her profession. Does the habit make the monk? Would we be reluctant to hire her or would we just judge her by her professional merit? Are their "diabolical" looks a big plus for scaring the opposing party? These questions just pop up in my mind...
Gross and scary, the pheasant skull and diamond-like stones necklace made by Jess, a British designer that uses pieces of animals that have died naturally or been killed for food. Her shocking garments and accessories called "Roadkill couture collection" are exhibited at Brighton Fashion Week today.
A magpie fascinator. Well, I think that living birds are much more fascinating!/ El tocado de plumas de urraca. Llamadme urraca ,pero creo que Jess está un poco tocada del ala...
Rat fur jacket and spare ribs belt. Amazing to hear Jess saying that she was a vegetarian for twenty years. I think she should have stuck into the veggie diet! Her seven years old son is always complaining about the smell of flesh-eating bugs at home. Luckily for him, Jess will move her workshop soon!
¿Nos encontramos frente a la futura diseñadora de cabecera de Lady Gaga? / Will she be next Lady Gaga´s favourite designer?

Well, everything is possible... or we just have a good imagination. Both the chicken leg (made of plastic, of course) dress and the fish spine minidress were shown on our Elle blog in March 2010 and Lady Gaga wore her meat outfit in September ´10. Therefore we can say that Sadie and I are much more modern than Miss Germanotta!
