"Hollywood Does Not Know What To Do With Me."
Chloë Sevigny recently became the face of the Miu Miu fashion house again and I got to wax poetic on my undying, unconditional love for the actress. Which is why it was so exciting to see her on the cover of Out Magazine, getting ready to give us the one-two punch. Sigh… she’s so gangsta. No, but seriously she’s playing a hitman on her new show. But the story’s got a twist like no other! Check out deets and some knockout picks of Chloë inside. Photography by Terry Richardson, but you should still checkie out.
Art And The Femme
Jenny Saville is a world-renowned contemporary painter with a new solo exhibit at the Modern Art Oxford in the UK. Saville is known for painting the human body– usually that of a woman’s– with little desire to evoke traditional ideas of beauty, let alone femininity. In fact many of her nudes are of morbidly obese women, or depict women who appear to be battered and bruised. Still, she’s described as “kind of a feminist” and I’d like to take a closer look with the PITNBrs to see if that’s how this art should be classified. And I warned you– they’re either feminist, misogynist, or grotesque (or something else), so be prepared. And if your bosses don’t appreciate nudes, some of these are also NSFW.
I'll Fly Away
Honestly? I didn’t even know there was a Vogue
in the 1800s
. But apparently there was, and I now have the photos to prove it. In celebration of July 4th
– and all the hustle and bustle that comes with it– Vogue
has shared a collection of photos from the archives depicting women among planes, trains, and automobiles. If you’re not getting away this Independence Day
invites you to live vicariously through these women. Models are usually good for that :) Gorgeous women and gorgeous photos inside!

Young, Gifted, And Fab
Now here’s some proof that teenagers can change the [art] world too! Sixteen year-old Cristina Otero and eighteen year-old Alex Stoddard are two young artist whose self-portraits kind of just changed my life. In separate instances but on the same day, I was lucky enough to stumble across photography by both of them and I cannot wait to hear what you guys think. Some of the coolest pictures ever, inside.
a href=”http://trendland.com/”>Trendland is a site that is quickly becoming my new favorite online hangout. What I stumbled upon late last night are photographs from celebrity photo shoots that I never knew I wanted to happen. Martin Schoeller takes your favorite celebs and– using a bit of fancy and fantasy– puts them right in their element. Zach Galifianakis in a duck bath, Quentin Tarantino in a straight jacket, and Angelina Jolie… as a vampire? It all kinda makes sense to me!
That-Ish-Cray of the Day
When I got to @santlov‘s page I was like, “What am I looking at?” What I was looking at was probably the coolest thing ever aka the ToysRLikeUs page on Instagram. If you’ve always wanted to know what Woody from Toy Story would look like with an iPhone or a Heineken in his hand, your (somewhat twisted) dreams have come true. Special thanks to Johnny, the love of my life who’s responsible for today’s That-Ish-Cray Of The Day post. And now let us enter the hilarious world of Santlov.
The Big [Hair] Comeback
Last week we got to see Joan Smalls
on the cover of W
magazine, and this week Vogue
has shared photos of the gorgeous super model in a unique spread, alongside Lara Stone
. The piece will run in Vogue
‘s July 2012 issue, and I am thrilled to have further confirmation that Joan Smalls
really is the next big thing. Or the current big thing! Go TeamJoan
. Ogle, envy, and relive the bold, big-haired glory of the eighties inside.
Street Art Makes Life Happy
here are plenty of good reasons to be semi-addicted to Instagram– Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Swizz Beatz are a few celebs with very popular accounts, and rightfully so. Here’s one more reason to make goo-goo eyes at what is, arguably, Apple‘s coolest app ever: @Instagrafite (sounds like “insta-grafitti”). This gallery of all things street art just had me lost in a seemingly infinite vortex of beautiful, outrageous images on concrete. Get lost with me inside.
Okay, if I put aside the creepy feeling I get looking at Terry Richardson (don’t google his name + ‘sexual allegations’ if you want to view these lovely pictures with an unfettered mind), I can really enjoy his work. He recently spent some professional time (ahem) with Kate Upton for her GQ shoot and then he got hella lucky (ahem) when supermodel Gisele Bündchen casually strolled into his NYC studio. Check out pics from their impromptu photo shoot inside. And no more jokes about sexual allegations. Promise.
