Two fashion candies; Short films Candy and Best Friends

If you are reader of misslikey blogspot and tumblr, you are probably familiar with the fact that I consider Wes Anderson a genius. 
Writer, director and producer who is innocently inspired with the Glass family always creates moving images that are memorable, pretty and educational. His heroines possess innocence of Ye-Ye girls and melancholic vibe of 1970s girl (read Nico) and always amuse us with their wit, intelligence and grace. Except for the movies, Wes is also known for his great commercial work. And the fact is, we don’t usually like TV ads, but when Wes directs them they are candies in motion. You do remember Stella Artois commercial from 2010 with Valentine Fillol Cordier that Wes co-directed with Roman Coppola? Well, these days the creative duo did another collaboration, this time for Prada’s new fragrance Candy. 

Star of the series of three short films for Prada Candy L'eau is a French actress Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris, Sister). 
Lea is quirky and charming Parisian dressed up in pretty pale mod dresses and red Mary Janes that finds herself in the love triangle in the city of love. 
We already love Candy. (The fragrance is available exclusively at Selfridges from March 28, and nationwide from April 29.) 
See all three films at Another Mag.

Another style film candy this month came from Lena Dunham. If Wes Anderson is innocently inspired by Franny and Zooey, Lena was inspired by The Royal Tenenbaums this time. The short film about friendship named Best Friends is for Rachel Antonoff Fall 2013 collection.

Oh my goodness, both of these were treasures. I had no idea he did commercials, too!! I can watch his works for hours and hours and not get sick of it. And Lena is becoming a force of nature, I love her short too. Anything in that vintage, mellow vibe is right up my alley

I seldom comment, but I looked at some of the responses on
"Two fashion candies; Short films Candy and Best Friends".
I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or does it look as if like some of these comments come across like they are left by brain dead visitors?

:-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list of every one of your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
