 Pure trash of course but also a fascinating insight into celebrity culture’s evolution throughout the noughties.

     As the founding editor of Heat magazine Frith makes for a flawed and fabulous narrator, jealous of the success of fellow publications, often derogatory about the stars he refers to as “playthings” and covetous of fame.   Frith is also fiercely loyal to his team and dedicated to a refreshing and  worthy ethos to de-bunk celebrity myth.
     Ironically and unfortunately, normalising celebrities created a space for ordinary folk from reality shows to seize the spotlight.  The subsequent rise of savvy PRs has enabled celebs to play the once revelatory magazines at their own game.
   
     It’s a fascinating insight into a unique period of modern history by a smart, flawed guy who was actually there.

     Marina Bychkova’s strange and beautiful dolls in a shoot for the Japanese edition of Vogue Beauty, December 2012.

     Take that Tiny Tears!

These images I found in the Japanese Vogue Beauty Dec. As a sill stylist myself I was blown away by the beauty of these images. Who were these dolls. They are so mystical, so Haute Couture (even though they are nude).
The creator of these dolls is Marina Bychkova and she is an amazing artist. Her dolls are so refined.
For more of her work you really have to visit her website. http://www.enchanteddoll.com
She also made a book it’s called the Enchanted Doll Book.
Unfortunately the first and second edition is sold out.
So hopefully they are going to make a edition because I so want this book.
But for now I have my Japanese Vogue

     If you dust-off June in The Arcade Of Arts & Arcana’s Archives (head to the sidebar on the homepage) you’ll find Pre-Raphaelite strumpets, naughty vintage movies some ridiculous facts about the Victorian Era and a popular post on that favourite guilty pleasure – Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula (click the link to read the original post).

     Perhaps it was Eiko Ishioka’s demonic raw-muscle armour that made the post so popular.  You can see it again here along with more of Ishioka’s Oscar-winning costumes for Gary Oldman…
