From the Always in Fashion event at the Beverly Hilton, (part of the Los Angeles Fashion Week 2017), this photo was taken during the Swim Runway, with the model wearing a stylish new Gyv Me Body creation- and the over the lens look sells it for me.
Photograph of the La Tuna Fire in the outskirts of Burbank, California. This photo was taken on Saturday, September 2nd, 2017, when parts of Burbank were under threat (and the full weight of the local Fire Departments was brought to bear on the fire).
On this, the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 that I’m sure every news report will tell us not to forget, and remind us that we haven’t forgotten… I wanted to share this picture of Abdulnasser Gharem’s sculpture, titled “Hemisphere”, which was featured in LACMA earlier this year. It represents the duality of Islam, (or frankly, all religions), between the peaceful and spiritual, (as depicted by the right half, based on the green dome of the Mosque of the Prophet in Media), and the political and violent tendencies, (as depicted by the left half, based on a Persian military helmet). The midpiece that is front and center is models on a noseguard from the helmet, which protects the face while also separating it.
And while we can list this duality in all religions, given the beauty of this work, and the darker responses to the terrorist attack 16 years ago, I wanted to post this – today – to show that beauty can come from all places, and that almost everything has two sides.
(Also, I’m really happy with how the picture came out.)
