Fashion ~ Outfit of the Night!

In my opinion, the most beautiful moment to kick off New York Fashion Week was Naomi Campbell in a glamorous red and green gown at the Tom Ford AW16 show. So in love, she’s always absolutely gorgeous! x

Arts ~ Banksy Identity

Yesterday multiple major media outlets published articles about their investigation into the identity of the English based graffiti artist, Banksy.

The political driven activist uses a specific stencil technique to create his satirical street art that often provokes discussion and has garnered him an international reputation.

A report from The Independent suggested that Robert “3D” Del Naja, the founding member of the English trip hop group, Massive Attack may be the elusive artist. This conclusion was drawn from reviewing the band’s tour dates and new works of art appearing in the same select cities.

As much as some people may want to know. The fact that the artist is unknown makes his work even more special. Instead of trying to reveal his identity, it may be best if the public admired and kept the mystery going or at least that’s my opinion. I guess in life not everyone can keep a secret or rather is willing to…

 

Culture ~ Love.

That moment when you’re so in love that you would like to live in a museum to admire the beauty everyday. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is one of my favourite places to go. It’s in my top 5 for museums around the world.

Culture ~ St George’s Day

Tomorrow marks the anniversary of St. George’s Day celebrating the patron saint of England.

It’s our major feast and national holiday since the 15th century where citizens used to wear a rose on one of their lapels to honour the Roman Christian soldier, Saint George who slayed a dragon to save a princess as legend claims.
