Styling Inspired By Works Of Art

I’m the type of person who can find inspiration anywhere, but especially in art. One of my favorite things to do while traveling is going to different art museums and taking in all the culture. It’s easy to find inspiration when there are so many beautiful paintings and sculptures in the world that can be seen by the public.

I love mixing my inspirations with fashion, which is probably why this post is here today. Check out some looks inspired by famous works of art. I doubt you can walk away from this post feeling uninspired. Let me know what you think!

Mona Lisa- Bring together olives, and darker neutrals to bring out Mona Lisa into your closet. Try not to confuse too many people with your sly smile when you leave the house.

The Kiss- To bring out Gustav Kilimt’s The Kiss into your style, be sure to wear gold with patterns inspired by the painting itself.

The Son Of Man- Dark neutrals with a pop of green are the focus of Son Of Man, so bring out your surreal side by adding these colors to your ensemble.

Haartrend: Vokuhila

Man braucht nicht lange drum herumzureden: Diese Frisur hat einen Image-Schaden. Vorne kurz, hinten lang, das weckt in den meisten Köpfen ungute Erinnerungen. An die Fußballspieler der Achtziger, an Rudi Völler, an Toni Polster, denen damals beim Torejagen lockige Flokatis hinterherwehten. An Andre Agassi, der seinen irren Schopf mit bunten Bändern bändigte. An, ach ja, Dieter Bohlen, George Michael, Hartmut Engler oder Stadionrocker Bono. Und nicht zuletzt an die Krocha der späten Nullerjahre. Wenn man so will, setzten die dem Vokuhila ein trashiges Krönchen auf. Mit Neonfarben, Blondierungen und ausrasierten Mustern. Dem Selbstbräuner musste eben was entgegengesetzt werden.

Das alles wollen wir jetzt aber einfach mal vergessen. Und uns stattdessen an die anderen, die frühen Vokuhilas erinnern. Die Modebranche ist nämlich wieder einmal mit dem Vokuhila ins Geschäft gekommen: Seit einiger Zeit geistert das Prinzip "vorne kurz, hinten lang" durch die Kampagnen und über die Laufstege.

Einer dieser modischen Überzeugungstäter ist der bald 82-jährige Karl Lagerfeld, der sich mit seinem Zopf zumindest dem "hinten lang" ja auch persönlich verpflichtet fühlt. Er warb Kristen Stewart, die sich zuletzt 2009 mit einem beeindruckenden Vokuhila in der Öffentlichkeit blicken ließ, für eine Chanel-Kampagne an. Darin posierte die amerikanische Schauspielerin mit locker durchgestufter Mähne.

Auch H&M ließ gerade erst Edie Campbells blonden Vokuhila für eine Kampagne ran. Vorne kurz, hinten lang, vielleicht wäre das ja was für den Herbst.

 Was meint Ihr ? xo

Bubble nails

... the trend that´s taking over the Internet ....

The latest nail trend is surprising to say the least. Women are going beyond experimenting with colors and designs to play with the actual shape of their nails with 3D "bubble nails."

So, what exactly do bubble nails look like? Somewhat similar to what your fingers might look like after getting jammed in a car door and swelling like crazy. Or, if you stuck your nails in crazy glue and then straight into a bowl full of gum balls.

"It was prevalent five or six years ago, right at the beginning of nail art, but it never gained popularity," celebrity nail artist Pattie Yankee told

According to Yankee, bubble nails are essentially acrylics with a much greater thickness than normal. To achieve the look, a nail technician places a ball (or multiple balls) of acrylic at the center of the nail and builds it out by adding layers.
While acrylics are typically applied as thinly as possible, this look is all about the bulk. But because the application creates such a heavy layer, Yankee warns the acrylic may be more prone to falling off.
"The point is to make it pop more," said Yankee, who explained that she often had clients ask for an accentuation of their natural hump in the '80s, but never this exaggerated.

And it's not just bubble nails that are trending; so-called "hump nails" are also having a moment. The two look similar on the surface, but the difference has everything to do with nail length. Bubble nails keep the nail bed short while hump nails have a more elongated shape (though a pointy or square end can appear on either).

So... can anybody tell me why I should just try that trend already ???????
