I love this video, it's so beyond. I wonder if she just pulled the wardrobe for this project from her own archives?? Could you image what her archives are like??? AHHHHHHHH!!!!! Amazing.

Leon Bakst

My interest/obsession with Leon Bakst and his work with the Ballet Russe began with Scheherazade (by Rimsky Korsakov). I am in love with this piece of music. The story is about Queen Scheherazade who is married to a King who kills his virgin brides the night after the wedding (RUDE!). But Queenie is far from a basic bitch and buys time by telling exotic, drawn out tales to the King in order to stay alive. 


I then started image binging on his illustrations of costume and set design. He seems like such an interesting artist, who lived in a beautiful, fantasy world. He was also friends with Marchesa Luisa Casati and designed many crazy costumes for that bad ass bitch.

Raul De Nieves

I first felt in love with work of Raul De Nieves in the editorial above, Singular Beauties by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld in Harper's Bazaar September 2013 issue. The spread was about diversity and women, but all I could think about were those shoesssss (and that good CDG Siamese Twin moment Carine created). Then again in March his work appeared in Rave New World by Panos Yiapanis in W mag. 



Originally from Mexico, Raul now lives and works in Brooklyn. He is an artist/musician/performance artist and is represented by a gallery in Sweden.
 I would love to own one of these figures. I find his work to be so exciting and fun!!




He seems wild. (which I love)



NBD.

Broad City





This is my new fav show!! I haven't laughed so hard from a TV show in a loooong time (ahem 30 Rock, RIP).  I'm obsessed with Ilana, I totally know some girls like her..kinda.
Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson write and produce this web series turned Comedy Central show and it's a f------ hit. Even Amy Poehler is an executive producer. I meaaaannn.....what more do you want?
