lohan x phillips: short film debuts today

Today, artist Richard Phillips debuts his short art film, starring Lindsey Lohan, and the Venice Biennale.

More of his work:


He made the sign for the Prada store located in Marfa, Texas.


I’d say he’s definitely inspired by celebrity pop culture… like the master of pop art and fame obsession: Andy Warhol.

The video shows you a peak of the exhibit– Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. Along with the never-before-seen performance of Florence + the Machine inside the Temple of Dendur. The beautiful sound of British singer Florence Welch singing “Dog Days are Over” fits perfectly with the night’s honoree: the late great Alexander McQueen.

Chanel Mademoiselle Photo Shoot: Behind the Scenes

A follow up on one of my first posts.

Photographer: Karl Lagerfeld

Model: Blake Lively


I like the first photo, but I’m not too crazy about the other ones they chose for the ad. After Karl’s shoot with Gisele I expected more life and color…these are a bit gray and dark.

Karl Lagerfeld & Blake Lively

Karl Lagerfeld has decided who the new official face of the “Mademoiselle” handbag line is….Blake Lively! It only seems right since her alter-ego is Serena van der Woodsen.  According to Chanel News–“Her spontaneity and fresh, youth image have convinced Chanel that she is the right person to represent the house and this range of bags.”

Anna Wintour introduced Lively to Lagerfeld at dinner in Paris during Chanel’s couture show last July.

Karl Lagerfeld is scheduled to photograph the launch of the “MADEMOISELLE” campaign in mid-March 2011.

I am certain the campaign photos will look amazing since Karl is the man behind the camera.
