!! OMG, where the wild things are: Charles Frèger’s ‘Wilder Mann’ photographs pagan costumes from around the globe !!

tumblr_mta2cxbcer1rjpu1ko2_500.jpg
Artist and photographer, Charles Frèger travelled the world to 18 different countries including Italy, Poland, Scotland and the Czech Republic to document the many different, still-practiced, pagan rituals and their costumes throughout Europe. Frèger was searching for what they call “The Wild Man”:

A centuries-old, legendary figure, the Wild Man continues to be an important symbol of transition associated with festivals that mark the cyclical patterns of life: the changing of the seasons, special religious holidays, rites of passage, life and death. In full-length portraits, the artist photographs celebrants enveloped in traditional costumes crafted from layers of animal skins, local plants, bones and antlers, which visually transform the masqueraders into a wooly bear, a long-horned goat, a demon or man of straw. Fréger photographs these imaginative creatures in their native landscape and explores human fascination with myth, ritual and tradition.

!! OMG, she loves anything that smells of sheep: Tilda Swinton X Pringle of Scotland Knitwear !!

281118-1.jpg
Another Mag just posted this brief, albeit awesome interview with Tilda Swinton regarding her collaboration with luxury knitwear designer, Pringle of Scotland, on her 2 new knitwear pieces inspired by actress Grace Kelly.
The excerpts from this hot article could easily just have been answered by @NotTildaSwinton, and mistaken for the real thing. (Or are they the same person?) Here are some of my favourite moments:

Tilda Swinton has become a national treasure, revered for her rare ability to work happily within both art-house and the mainstream. Androgynous yet glamorous, all the while intelligent, fearless and humble, she is a creative giant and fashion inspiration. She rarely wears make-up and has adopted her own influential tailored style of loose trousers, silk blouses, vibrant colours and exquisitely cut knitwear.

YASS! A National Treasure, who rarely wears makeup, and somehow makes androgyny glamorous! Credit where credit is due. From Tilda’s interview:

What is your favourite piece of knitwear at the moment?
An ancient ginger jersey belonging to my friend Louis made by his grandmother in the thirties – as intricate and reliable as a Celtic stone.
…I have the softest spot for anything that smells strongly of sheep.

…and I have the softest spot for anything that comes out of Tilda’s mouth. Making my Monday that much better! Love her.

!! OMG, YASSSS!: First teaser for Lifetime’s ‘House Of Versace’ starring Gina Gershon !!

Screen Shot 2013-09-11 at 1.00.35 PM.png
First Lohan as Liz Taylor, then an Anna Nicole Smith “biopic”, — now this! I think the Lifetime Network has finally realized that if you’re going to produce some campy shit (knowingly or unknowingly), that you may as well embrace it!
This teaser (which looks like it was pieced together from Heidi Klum‘s Project Runway cutting room floor scraps) for House Of Versace is beating the humps out of my hump day, and I have a feeling my friends are already scurrying to create new drinking games. Lifetime has fully committed to that ridiculousness, and it seems like Gina Gershon is in on the joke too.
Check out the first teaser video after the JUMP!

!! OMG, jewellery to die for!: Paul Koudounaris photographs the excess of the dead !!

image-14.jpeg
If you’ve been following New York Fashion Week at all this past week, you’ve probably already seen your share of skeletons posing for photos, draped in high-fashion — here’s some MORE!
Photographer, Paul Koudounari has new book coming out called Heavenly Bodies: Cult Treasures & Spectacular Saints from the Catacombs, (published by Thames & Hudson) which features some materialistic-ass skeletons showing off their worth! From Atlas Obscura:

The jewelled skeletons were originally found in catacombs beneath Rome in 1578, and distributed as replacements under the belief they were Christian martyrs to churches that had lost their saint relics in the Reformation. However, for most, their identities were not known. The receiving churches then spent years covering the revered skeletal strangers with jewels and golden clothing, even filling their eye sockets and sometimes adorning their teeth with finery. Yet when the Enlightenment came around they became a little embarrassing for the sheer amount of money and excess they represented, and many were hidden away or disappeared. Koudounaris tracked down the dead survivors.

Check out the rest of the sexy skeletons after the jump.
(The last photo is my favourite… She’s giving me “fix yo’ lipstick before you come and talk to me” eyes)!
