Madonna & Chanel K-I-S-S-I-N-G. @ Cannes

22 May 2008, 19.31 | Posted in Art, Fashion | No comments »

Straight up, the dress, which is Chanel, is amazing. You see a garment like this and it’s one of those moments when you are made to understand the difference between ready to wear and coutoure. My issue with Madge in this dress, however, is that she’s so tiny that it doesn’t look as good on her. And she has a tendency to do that–wear outfits that fit her personality rather than her frame. But oh well, she’s Mo. Her critics over the past quarter of a century have come and gone and she remains standing. A bad-ass female if ever there was one!

My other issue is that I’m not crazy about this kind of stark, black, white color contrast. To my eye, it breaks up the dress’s lines too much.

More images (which are all from Wire.com) of the dress, Mo’s accessories and her shoes after the flip.

kicks ART BY GABY

This is Gaby’s story"He woke up one morning and told his  girlfriend he was going to be a succesful artist,without an art degree or any art experience, he started to create art on  cardboard found on the street and mixing  paint with Diet Coke"

His inspiration comes usually fom modern icons found in our Urban world.I love that he uses material found on the street to paint…Lord knows the huge amounts of carboard we toss everyday..And you know what the Big Corporations are even worse…I’ve spent many an aftternoon taping boxes to be tossed….

Any way I really like Gaby’s work! Check out after the jump for more of his work

For those of you out there who Drink Diet Coke like it’s water you might want to think of what it does to your  body…

Enjoy

HighSnobettiest: SuperFertile Accessories!!!

05 May 2008, 16.11 | Posted in Accessories, Art | No comments »

The item of the day arrived early today. Once again, one of our amazing readers hipped me up to a line that I definitely should have known about, but pathetically did not. This tip comes from Em, who let me us know that M.I.A. has a sister, Kari Arulpragasam, who does a jewelry line called Super Fertile.

Let me not lie and admit that when I first read about the line, I figured it would likely be a bust. After all, how much creativity can any one family claim?? But as soon as I saw the images, I was stunned and amazed. Kari is as talented at making jewelry as her sister is at making music.

^^I think that’s Sudan on the left and Iraq on the right. I love how she doesn’t disappear women who wear veils. They are right there in the mix, representing.

More images, including earrings on the other side…

Now the other news Em imparted is that M.I.A.has started her own clothing line. Love the woman, but I don’t know about that move. Besides the rag trade being a total grind, when musicians and actresses launch brands, the outcome is akin to athletes who try to be rappers….aka not positive!

Welcome back to another week!

Sweet City Woman: All Female Art Show @ Fuse Gallery, NYC

28 April 2008, 22.58 | Posted in Art | No comments »

When last I spoke to TooFly, she was mentioning how she needed a new system for keeping herself better organized and on top of all her appointments/events. Given that she not only sent me the flier for this post AND the last one–both events which she’s participating in–as busy as this woman is, rather than any new system, she might wanna try cloning herself!

This show takes opens on May 3rd at Fuse Gallery and will be curated by Queen Andrea and GMO$, both of whose art is also featured, along with TooFly plus three more.

Here’s the flier…

The Devil Went Down to Brooklyn!!! OMG!

04 April 2008, 16.04 | Posted in Art | No comments »

The opening for the Murakami show at Brooklyn Museum was last night and looky-loo and who was there! None other than the devil herself!!

AnnaWintour The Devil Went Down to Brooklyn!!! OMG!

^^She probably helicoptored in and landed on the roof of the museum to avoid driving through the streets of Brooklyn so she wouldn’t have to hurt her eyes gazing upon humans—gasp!!–who don’t make a gazillion dollars/year. That’s Marc on the right of course. He did another bag collabo with Murakami and it launched in conjunction with opening night.

And if you weren’t there, don’t feel bad (even though it would have been fun to see Kanye perform no matter what). Look at the pictures after the fold and you’ll see that launch night parties at museums are filled with boring-ass people who have the social skills of hamsters. I’m NOT lying. Seriously.
