"You kept calling me and pretty
and although I liked the sound of it
I didn’t want to hear it come out of your mouth
I wanted you to tell me you like the way
I never shut up about the things I care about
Or how I dreamt of a future
that was big and bold and daring
I need you to say that you loved the way
I smiled trying to contain my laughter
at dumb jokes on dumb shows
That the way I refuse to sleep in the dark
isn’t dumb or childish but rather smart.
That when I draw, the world slips away from me
and I’m immersed in my painting
trying to make sure ever line comes out
just how I imagined.
I don’t want to just be pretty.
I want to be something more
Tell me I’m everything in the universe,
I want you to see me for who I am."
To be something more to you: Carol Shlyakhova (strong-but-breakable)

Models as party girls: The night is young; let’s have one more cigarette, one more flute of champagne. This photo from Vogue Italia September 1994 doesn’t mention names, but from left to right they look like Carla Bruni, Nadege, Christy Turlington and Claudia Schiffer. All dresses by Lancetti.

"Why didn’t I learn to treat everything like it was the last time. My greatest regret was how much I believed in the future."
