Tilda Swinton

One of the coolest and most beautifully talented actresses is 50 yr old British Tilda Swinton. You’re reminded of this every time you see her in a movie! Interesting fact about her: As the modern muse she is, she has two men in her life, the father of her children, Scottish painter John Byrne and also partner Sandro Kopp (a German / New Zealand painter) who she has been with for 4 yrs alongside. “I’m very fortunate. It takes some extraordinary men to make a situation like that work.” (W Magazine article)

Monday treat

LA rule # 1: It’s very important to spoil yourself on mondays. For example with a cake by Sadaharu Aoki.

Here comes the sun

Love this number by The Beatles and love its promisses … if only! When it happens, I’ll be wearing these sunglasses by Valentino.

John Stezaker

Going to London later this week, Im lucky enough to collide with a showing of work by great artist John Stezaker (b. 1949) More about the exhibition here. Love the surreal, dreamy and macabre tone in his collages.

“The contrast at the heart of these works [by Stezaker] is not between represented and real, but between the unknowing primitives of popular culture and the conscious, ironic artist and viewer of post-modern images.”
