'Advertising makes people feel inadequate and worthless. Graffiti doesn’t do that. Graffiti doesn’t emotionally blackmail you, graffiti doesn’t make you feel fat and graffiti doesn’t make you rush out and buy things – except maybe high-strength cleaning products.' - BANKSY
I just love the 60's. Everything about it. The fashion, the music, the people, the history. So much went on in that decade and I'm gutted I couldn't be apart of it. But this post is as you can most likely tell by the title is an expression of my love for Twiggy. She was the start of a fashion sensation that showed the world that not all woman were gifted with the sexy curvaceous body of big boobs and baby baring hips; but that there were woman out there that pretty much had the figure of a boy. 50 years on, and the tables have very much so turned with all catwalk models baring their bones, and anyone above a size 8 to be 'plus size'. A crying shame. But none the less, Twiggy was beautiful and here are some of my favourite photos of her.
These images make me wanna start drawing on eyelashes! They look so sultry. Love it!
Well in all fairness, it wern't that long in the first place, but a cut is a cut. I dyed it too. I can't really describe the colour as it's a colour i've never really seen before! I guess it's a latte/muddy blonde colour... what do you think?
I have plans to ombre it tomorrow though, making the ends blonde so it looks like I have grown out roots. I want it to look a little something like this....
But we'll see. heres hoping it goes well and I don't end up looking like a liquorice allsort.
I love the ombre hair look. Some brave people have done drastic ombre-ing and used bright colours and shades and just gone all out, and I think it looks fantastic!
The Sleeveface phenomenon began online with people posting photos in which they had cleverly posed with album covers. They first appeared on waxidermy.com in early 2006, but the original idea is claimed by a group of people in Cardiff, including Carl Morris, founder of sleeveface.com and co-author of the new Sleeveface book. Now there are Flickr and Facebook groups devoted to the art of vinyl disguise so anyone can start adding pictures and join the movement. For a masterclass go towww.sleeveface.com/video
Oil painting with a knife by Francoise Nielly. Françoise Nielly’s painting is expressive, exhibiting a brute force, a fascinating vital energy. Oil and knife combine to sculpt her images from a material that is , at the same time, biting and incisive, charnel and sensual. Whether she paints the human body or portraits, the artist takes a risk : her painting is sexual, her colors free, exuberant, surprising, even explosive, the cut of her knife incisive, her color pallet dazzling.
