Laura Dern in Jurassic Park

Wouldn’t say I am your go-to Jurassic Park lover in any crowd, but I was recently shown a clip from the original film in my night class–the prof would be that Jurassic Park lover in any crowd–and noticed nothing but what Laura Dern was wearing as Dr. Ellie Sattler (which, turns out was not why the prof was showing us the clip).

Her style in the film is almost exactly everything I love and am trying to edit my wardrobe. Relaxed, comfortable, classic. Her bangs are adorable, but I would look pretty loony myself with that ‘do because of my cowlick. But her glasses are similar to the ones I own now.

Tilda Swinton, Dior, A Bigger Splash

I don’t have too much to say about this collaboration between Luca Guadagnino and Raf Simons for the film A Bigger Splash because its perfection has rendered me speechless. But I’ll give the gist of it: Queen Tilda Swinton plays a (Bowie-esque) rock star recuperating in paradise Pantelleria, Italy wearing custom and vintage Dior so…you get me? Do you get why I am having difficulty articulating just how wonderful this artistic gift is? Just, look.

From her elegant twist knot beach cover, to her straw sandals, to her white pant suit for attending a traditional island festival, to the blessed white skirt with her drop back black blouse, I just…have no words. Perfection. THIS is art.

Oh. And Ralph Fiennes dances to “Emotional Rescue.”

Fashion & Film: Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict

01-Peggy-Guggenheim-Collection.jpg

There are so many wonderful art and fashion documentaries available in the last few years, it is not surprising that there’s another one out now. Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict follows the life and story of Peggy Guggenheim, one of the greatest art collectors of the 20th century who is credited for discovering Jackson Pollock.

“It’s all about art and love.” — Peggy Guggenheim

Directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland, who also directed Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel (another fabulous watch), the film explores the tragic and wonderful life of another colorful woman. Ms Guggenheim managed to collect billions of dollars of rare art pieces during her lifetime and was a major contributor to the modern art movement in Europe and New York.

In addition to art, she collected artists–both personally and professionally. Her close circle of friends included Samuel Beckett, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder, and Marcel Duchamp.

I didn’t know too much about Ms. Guggenheim before watching the documentary and now I am so grateful to know her. She’s incredibly inspiring as such a free, creative soul who passionately loved art above all else. Oh, and her accessorizing abilities were through the roof.
