Girl In The Wild

my friend Amy recently moved away to work at a game lodge in the bush, and though i will seriously miss her while she’s gone (i hate it when friends move away, why can’t we all just stay in the same city, huh?) i know she’s going to love it, because Amz is a bush girl. it’s also not many people who get to live in the African bush – that is a rare treasure, and something you should do once in your life if you can.

before she left she said she’s not going to change her style there, but rather maintain a Lauren Hutton Out of Africa-esque vibe. right on. so when i saw the fall campaign for Maiyet featuring Daria Werbowy somewhere out in the African wild i immediately though of Amz, and thought i’d do an ode to her in the form of a fashion meets painting post. hopefully she can print them out and stick them in one of her books.

before you ask, i did not paint these by hand. that would be ridiculous! thanks photoshop.

brief encounter

most of the time i skip past editorials in fashion magazines because they simply don’t interest me all that much. it takes a lot to make me pause, and this ed from us vogue certainly did. what an odd pairing in daria werbowy and david straitharn, playing the journalist + artist in a ‘brief encounter’ on what is presumably his southwest ranch getaway slash artistic love nest. if you don’t get it yet, this is why grace coddington is so beloved. i mean, i still think ah fashion it’s really all so silly isn’t it – how many outfits does this chick wear for one interview? regardless, it made me smile.
