THE INTERSECTION OF ART & BEAUTY

Recently we visited the Los Angeles Museum of Art (LACMA) to see its “Variations:  Conversations In and Around Abstract Art” show.  While we were completely dazzled by the stunning Mark Bradford, Mark Grotjahn, Amy Sillman, and Sterling Ruby paintings, it was one artist’s work, Rachel Lachowicz‘s, that had us transfixed.  Her two installations, Cell:  Interlocking Construction (left) and Lipstick Urinals (right), were constructed primarily of makeup!  Lachowicz, whose work can be found in permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, MOCA Los Angeles, MFA Boston, and The Bronx Museum of the Arts, explores the relationship of identity, politics, and gender predominantly through the use of cosmetics.  We’re certainly intrigued by her extreme makeover!

LIPSTICK FEMINISM?

KLUM REPLACES “THE BODY” LINGERIE LINE

Supermodel and business woman, Heidi Klum, has signed a deal to replace Elle Macpherson, “The Body,” as the creative director and ad campaign model for  New Zealand-based intimate label, Bendon.  The company will no longer be producing Elle Macpherson Intimates, which was launched in 1990, has been valued at $150 million.  The Heidi Klum Intimates line will launch in January with a price point of $59-$99 at retailers such as Bloomingdale’s, Selfridges, and Nordstrom; the Heidi by Heidi Klum line, priced at $25-$39, will simultaneously be released globally.  The more budget-friendly business will hit J.C. Penney storefronts in July, 2015.  Klum posted yesterday on Facebook, “”Super excited about this!”

TAYLOR SWIFT GOES GATSBY!

In celebrating its fortieth anniversary, People Weekly had Taylor Swift recreate Mia Farrow’s Great Gatsby look from its inaugural cover in 1974!  While the look may be retro, we are loving Swift’s sophisticated styling!
