Just For Laughs

Above, Ben Stiller emulating the infamous fashion photographer, Terry Richardson. Too bad prepubescent models have been accusing the great photographer for exploiting their bodies - there is always a way to get that 5 minutes...Read more about the Richardson scandal at Fashionista.com.

vintage Valium ad:


I need a dress like this - the introduction of shoulder pads, again, in current SS 2010 lines is not as frightening as I have always seen it. This sequined dress is fabulous, and Anja Rubik accessorizes it well with the perfect vice...

more shoulder pads in denim on Moss:

and sheer, slightly polka-dotted tights are a must...

'Lovely Bones'

Abbey Lee in Vogue Korea April 2010 editorial, 'Lovely Bones':

High-Light: Alina Szapocznikow

This Polish sculpter uses the mediums of bronze, cement, polyester, marble, etc. to exemplify her brilliant dismembered pieces. One of my favorite, below, is 'Wielkie brzuchy' (big bellies), a marble piece she made in 1968. She reassembles the body by liberating the soft, pudgy stomach of a woman - stacking the same piece on top of each other, doubling the sensual and loving pleasures of the body.

other great works by her:

"Portret wielokrotny (dwukrotny)" (Multiplied Portrait [double]), 1967, colored polyester resin

Abbey Lee is a 'Space Cadet' in i-D's Spring 2010 issue- and I can't help but think of the timeless James Bond movie 'Goldfinger'. In a beginning scene, actress Shirley Eaton's character was killed by her skin not being able to breath, from being covered in gold paint. There was an urban myth surrounding the movie that this actress actually died during the filming of this movie, because of the paint (others say it was a body double). This story was also the text behind the cover of Life magazine's 1964 issue:

High-Light: Eric White

Eric White's work is a beautiful collaboration of painting and collage  - and now his work is a part of STAGES, an international art exhibition to raise funds against cancer. Other artists involved are Richard Prince, KAWS, Kenny Scharf, and many more recognizable names and newcomers to the art world. This exhibition was founded by Lance Armstrong and Nike. Below are some amazing works by White:
