The Once and Future Queens

Amir just brought back a beautiful brochure of Simone Lueck’s latest exhibition at Kopeikin Gallery, “The Once and Future Queens.” They’re stunning portraits of incredibly fabulous older ladies posing as some of their favorite Hollywood starlettes, as Mara, in her glamour bath after Brigitte Bardot above, demonstrates. (All subjects were found via an online ad soliciting older ladies to pose as movie stars.) The photos are dripping with fierce divas in chiffon, moss crepe, diamonds, pink satins, and honey, everything else I love! If you’re in LA, the exhibition is up just a few more days, until October 23.

Elle Muliarchyk’s Psychics/Dossier

Stills from New York photographer and film maker Elle Muliarchyk‘s new film project. She dressed up model Meghan Collinson in ten different disguises and sent her to different New York based psychics, filming the interactions with hidden cameras. Each costume resulted in a different fortune. The stills are more reminiscent of a beautifully styled period film than hidden camera surveillance.

Studio Visit: Blickle

A few weeks back I headed over to the studio of painter Alison Blickle. You may remember Alison from a previous post as well as her killer contribution to book 3. Alison recently moved to LA , with a studio down the street from the B/D office so I thought i’d stop by and check out what she’s been up to.
