The New ‘Girl’ In My Life

The TV Guide

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been doing a bit of redecorating in the past few days and last night, I dug out an amazing print that I’ve been meaning to display for months but never got the chance to hang. My dear friend Tamar gave David and me a print of one her photographs and last night I had it framed for display in my bedroom. The print is titled Broken Robot Girl #1 and it’s beautiful. More »

Love Annie

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a mostly quiet but very productive day for me. I spent much of the day redecorating my home. I did some furniture shopping on Friday and early Saturday morning it was all delivered. I still have a couple more things to get but overall, my place is coming together. David and I have very different decorating styles and for the entire time we lived together, much of our home was decorated to his liking. While I didn’t mind the minimal sparcity, it’s not really the way that I would’ve done things. Now is the time for me to make my home more me. More »

The Cast Of ‘Revenge’ Gets Extra Naughty In A New Tyler Shields Photoshoot

Everybody Lurves 'Revenge'

If you ever caught the E! reality show Mrs. Eastwood & Company, then you probably remember Tyler Shields, the drama-inducing boyfriend of Clint Eastwood‘s daughter Francesca. I caught a few of the episodes when it was on and Tyler was really the controversial character… I was not a huge fan. Reality TV personality aside, he’s also a talented photographer (we’ve seen plenty of his work with Lindsay Lohan) and a huge fan of one of my favorite shows, Revenge. Tyler has been sharing some ah-mazing photo shoots of the Revenge cast on his official website for the past few months and I had to show y’all some of these images. It’s just crazy fun to see these characters getting  reimagined in cool ways. And although he’s done the ‘gun’ thing before, I think it was an appropriate prop,  given the revenge-y characters he was working with. Tyler‘s Chromatic series is esepecially impressive, as it renders many of our fave people totally unrecognizable. I love it! And I think all of you who’ve been joining me in the Revenge recaps will love it too. Peep the gallery for more!

Watch: M.I.A. Gives Fans A Sneak-Peek Of Her Upcoming Art Book

Bad Girl Artsy
M.I.A. Coffee Table Book, Anyone?

M.I.A. is one of many celebrities to get the Rizzoli publication treatment. Kate Moss and Pharrell also have books from the esteemed publishing house and now M.I.A. has an art book coming out. She took to Twitter to share a simple video of her flipping through mock-up pages of a binder so fans could have a sneak-peek of the project. Mostly you get to see images; art work, prints, and various designs (all in the signature style that we’ve come to associate with M.I.A.) make up the bulk of the collection. I also saw some pages filled with pics from video shoots and performances. Check out the video above (Bad Girls is playing in the background… nice!) and click inside to learn more.

Supermodel Anja Rubik Brings Art History To ‘Numéro’ Magazine

Sort Of...

Anja Rubik brought sexy back in a big way when, earlier this year, she showed up at the 2012 Met Ball in the amazing-iest Anthony Vaccarello dress ever. Since then I’ve had my eye on the supermodel, who recently sought out Kanye West to make an artsy porn flick for her erotica magazine, 25. Now Anja‘s in a spread for Numéro magazine and I’m in love with her all over again! Numéro came under scrutiny last week for publishing and then photoshopping some intense photographs of Karlie Kloss, but this photo shoot should be pretty controversy-free. Anja takes us back to Art History 101 (if Art History 101 was kind of seductive and fashion forward, lol), posing against classic paintings and wearing Givenchy, Balmain, Chanel, Roberto Cavalli and Gucci (among others). Photographed by Camilla Akrans, the shoot has a dark tone to it, but there’s a whimsical feel as well that kinda reminds me of that other Karlie Kloss shoot we saw. Maybe it’s the pink hair ;) Peep the gallery for more!

A Brilliant Photographer Courageously Documents Her Amazing Body Transformation

Julia Kozerski's 'Changing Room'

Julia Kozerski just changed my life. Recently I’ve seen her work profiled on a few different sites and everyone is wow-ing over this series of iPhone pictures she took over the course of a year documenting her dramatic 160 lb. weight loss. What’s interesting about this collection of photos (dubbed Changing Room) is that they represent the most basic form of self-portraiture. Her skill and bravery as a photographer shines through most in another project (which also documents her experience with weight-loss), titled Half. In the gallery above, we have some of the photos from Changing Room. And inside there are more images from Half, some of which are NSFW. Prepare to be kind of blown away.

Supermodel Karlie Kloss Gets A Fantastic Parisian Transformation In ‘W’ Magazine

High Fashion Fantasy

OMG. Yes to this whole artsy/fashion/Parisian movement! Recently we learned that supermodel Karlie Kloss will be teaming up with good friend and fellow model Joan Smalls for the return of MTV‘s House Of Style. The young model has been featured in W magazine before, but today we get to see her on a whole ‘nother, Parisian level. I saw this photo shoot the other day and totally fell in love with the theme: Sweet Escape. Photographed by Nick Knight and styled by Edward Enninful, Karlie is an American in Paris, wearing hella couture (Chanel, Givenchy, Dior, Louis Vuitton, etc.)  in this collection of photographs and digital illustrations. You can even catch her wearing that petty pink Dior gown that Jessica Biel rocked a while back; but the whimsical design of the photo gives it a whole new look. Peep the gallery for more high fashion and fairy tale collabos and check out the full editorial here.

An Artist Creates Amazing Vintage Mug Shots Of Celebrities

What Up Amanda B?

OMG… these photos will give you great pleasure, I promise. Michael Jason Enriquez is an art director and he came up with the brilliant idea of taking some of our favorite law-abidingly challenged celebs and giving them their own vintage mug shots. It’s hilarious. In fact, the photos kind of remind me of those awesome Planet Hiltron celebrity make-unders, but these ones get a  little more artsy with it. Enriquez recently created a series of photographs featuring mug shots from old school 1920s criminals and he used those images to create this contemporary celebrity series. Read more about his project here and peep the gallery for more photos. Lindsay Lohan, Snooki, Charlie Sheen, and Robert Downey Jr. all get a shouts-out from the artist. Enjoy!

Watch: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Brilliant Artsy Production Company Teams Up With Levi’s

JGL does hitRecord
JGL Is Getting His Artsy On

hitRecord is a community-based, web-driven art production company founded by one of our favorite people in the world, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. As if we needed another reason to obsess over JGL, the Looper star released this new video introducing us to his super cool, super artsy brain child and I’m really excited to see where this production goes. Levi’s brand is now on board which means we’ll be seeing more of JGL and the artists and creative works he’s looking to promote. The best part is that anyone can submit their music, book, fashion, anything concept to his website and– if yours is chosen– get paid in the shade for your art, which is no small feat. Did I say I love JGL? I love JGL. I love this idea! I love when celebs do cool stuff other than looking crazy hot on a GQ cover… which he’s done… and I loved that.

Oh– and I love that he said ‘interwebs‘!

Nothing says classy like a bottle of French rosé… with Prince Harry‘s bum on the label. Apparently, people are seriously looking to cash in on that wild night Prince Harry had up in Vegas. Not too long ago we heard from the girl who was (allegedly) partying with him in his hotel and some people thought it was a cry for attention/money on her part. Now Sheldon Wines is releasing a new bottle of rosé with a fantastic illustration on the label. Click inside for more That-Ish-Cray Of The Day.
