Remembering Liz Taylor

The two time oscar wninner actress: Elizabeth Taylor passed awaythe 23 of March. World-wide known for her beautiful violet eyes, her role as Cleopatra and her classic hollywood persona.
According to ABC webpage  this is what her son said:
"My Mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love," Taylor's son, Michael Wilding, said in a statement. "Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world. Her remarkable body of work in film, her ongoing success as a businesswoman, and her brave and relentless advocacy in the fight against HIV/AIDS, all make us all incredibly proud of what she accomplished. We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts."

Buenos Aires Fashion Week: Feb

video

BAF Week took place in the end of February, and two days before I received a call from a local teen magazine "para teens" asking me if I wanted to cover the show. I was ecstatic. Honestly, I was so so so psyched. I got to go backstage, which was awesome, and I even spoke to some of the models (which were Brazilian, of course-> click here to see a pic of them). I sat front row, and I was blissful, seriously I was exuding happiness. Above there is just a glimpse of what that experience was like, showing the last walk of the fashion show of ComoQuieres.

I'll be back soon with the actual article!


Thanks 4 visiting,

Art persona: Nadia Plesner

Nadia Plesner is a danish artist. Her art is described as "The disappearing boundaries between the editorial and advertising departments in the media is a central theme in Plesner's works."

On her most popular work of art she does a modern version of Picasso's Guernica, with the title of "Dafurnica", which shows a sort of collage that contrasts the genocide in Darfur, with what was "headline worthy" at the time (Paris Hilton scandals, Britney's shaved head, dunno.. same old same old.)
She is now being sued by Louis Vuitton because of using their logo in her art piece.
I couldn't be more enraged. She is making a statement, expressing what she believes in the most striking way possible as to grab our attention, and she is right, Isn't that what art is supposed to be about? it is very lamentable that we choose to focus in what is superficial, scandals.. instead of seeing the bigger picture: people were at war and we were reading about Paris Hilton's dog? Britney's hair? It really helps us put things into perspective .

Fashion Icon: talking Kate♔

Kate Moss. What could possibly represent the '90s fashion scene more than her? Actually, what could possibly represent fashion more than her?
It's incredible how someone can live through so much (drugs, boyfriends, raising a child) in the public eye, but still be treasured and respected as we all do Kate Moss.




Love as always,
