Storyboard IV

Jetlag has put me into full-on blogger mania, so yippee I guess. I've got a whole bunch of wonderful stuff that I've dug up, all of which has nothing to do with the real world, but it's fun to look at.
Edvard Munch's painting The Scream was in the forefront of my mind during exams. This painting is notorious for being stolen on multiple occasions, but should also be remembered as it is a wonderful expressionist painting that is celebrated for its use of color and raw emotion emanating from the figure in the foreground.
Well I decided to be creative... or insane and decided to paint it on my face for fun. It. Was. Awesome. I don't think I've ever had this much fun creating art in my whole entire life. It didn't go as smoothly as planned, but I think it is a pretty good effort. Thoughts?
This is Emmanuelle Alt's second French VOGUE cover, this time featuring Kate Moss wearing an Armani Prive Couture jacket. She is the second 'supermodel' to grace the cover since Alt's reign began last month when Gisele Bundchen wore a wonderful white Dolce and Gabbana mini.
Gotta love you some Christian Louboutins, especially when they're disguised as animal paws. Where's Lady Gaga when you need her.
This week Balmain announced that they had filled the head designer spot left vacant by Christophe Decarnin. Meet Olivier Rousteing who will show his first collection for the brand in October of this year. I'll miss Decarnin, but who could be sad for long with someone as good looking as Olivier? I'm excited for the future.
I will be the first to admit that I have a shoe fetish and these Alexander McQueen leafy/winged platforms make it hard to get over my addiction.
It doesn't help that I found the Nicholas Kirkwood Fall 2011 collection online some days ago either...
It was Grace Coddington's 70th birthday recently and VOGUE threw her a wonderful bash and Fashionologie amassed a collection of wonderful photographs and this one was my fave.
So yeah yeah Met Ball, Alexander McQueen ok you've seen it before and here's another photo. Beautiful dress in motion from the Fall 2010 show
This ring was part of a trove of treasures found by an Austrian man in his back yard. The find is approximately 650 years old and a very important discovery for the country
I've had this image of a Burberry trench shot by Tommy Ton, of the JAK & JIL blog, as my desktop forever. I think it is beautiful and very elegant while still being exceptionally on trend
I saw this image of mountains of space dust taken by the Hubble Telescope and it blew my mind. Reminds me of the Christopher Kane Resort 2011 collection, but almost infinitely more beautiful. I wish I lived light years away with a window to this.
Home is where the heart is... I took this photo two summers ago when my Mom and I went hiking at the Seven Sisters by the coast. I think this is the image that inspired my blog... or at least my moniker
Tom Ford does sexy by nature and his latest beauty campaign is nothing but. If only we all looked that nonchalant while covered in soap and drenched, I'd just look like a drowned rat
One of my favorite models, Agy Deyn, made a wonderful return to print work in this British VOGUE spread modeling all-white ensembles. So glad she's 'back', she looks phenomenal in these photos 

And finally I discovered artist Simon Schubert, whose talent is exceptionally unique. He makes paper art out of carefully planned folds and that's it. I don't know how he manages to create shadows and the illusion of 3-dimensionality but whatever he's doing is working!

Observations: Home Alone is awesome, why haven't I seen it since I was little. Next childhood movie... Mighty Ducks
Craving: Something salty... mmm
