Over the past few years, the beard has re-established itself as the ultimate accessory for the modern gentleman. To document this, every day for 100 days Jonathan Daniel Pryce photographed a new beard on the streets of London. From big and bushy to trendy and trimmed, above are some of our favourites. When my hairless boyfriend just yesterday declared that he was going to spend the next three months growing (attempting) a beard, I will admit to having grimaced. Fortunately, our relationship may have been saved by the discovery of this project. It’s made me think that perhaps beards aren’t that bad after all.
Whilst webstalking Danish megababe Ivania Carpio (of loveaesthetics.blogspot.com) I came across a post she did about a new design student called Jody Delange. The above images are from the capsule she graduated with.. Though not available to purchase – I love it and want ALL OF IT, damn the Danes have swag.
This year the theme for the Costume Institute Ball was Punk… Although, you’d be hard pressed to realise that if you were going by the gowns on the red carpet. No, Emma Watson, your single earring and black evening dress do not constitute punk. Like any good fancy dress party, the winners are always the people who dress to the theme (Florence Welch, Cara Delevigne, Nicole Richie, Kirsten Stewart, SJP etc) and the beautiful people who ignored the dress code (the Olsen twins, Kate Bosworth, etc). Here are our picks of the best and worst from the gala ball.
Now we move to the slightly more dubious or just ridiculous of the themed and unthemed costumes we witnessed on the red carpet….For the record, you cant go to a Costume Gala Ball with a theme like ‘PUNK’ and wear a floor length, long sleeve hot pink taffeta gown… Yes, we’re talking to you Gwyneth. The inclusion of Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Madonna and others on this list are fairly self explanatory.
