The times when we used to define people by gender – a he or a she – are over. Enter the new era. The era of genderless beauty. Fashion – just like art – is a reflection of society and of the times; as such, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the latest modelling sensation is one that possesses a kind of beauty of such magnitude, that it surpasses gender definitions.
Most fashion lovers see beauty when they look at the wonderful creations that fashion designers put on the catwalk each season, but no one sees beauty the way Jill Sherman sees it. The fabulous girl behind Trend De La Crème has the most incredible eye for detail and her ability to match catwalk pieces with natural phenomena is simply mind blowing!
Pah to the colourful pants trend! A wiser, cheaper and savvier way to be bang on trend with the bright colour craze this season is – instead of blowing all your pay check on those bright coloured pants which will most definitely be so last season come Fall – to opt for updating your wardrobe by adding a splash of colour with some pretty make-up, nail polish and -believe it or not- hair paint instead!
I’m really feeling the hippie look of this Spring/Summer! So knowing myself and my eternal desire to educate myself, I started to read up on the whole hippie culture.

Over the course of human history, the concept of beauty has transformed, adapting to the times. The human body has always been a source of curiosity and inspiration. Just step inside practically any museum and get a good look at the first nudes in paintings. The women reclining languidly are usually surrounded by food and sumptuous fabrics and would be considered positively overweight by today’s extreme standards. Yet these paintings are beautiful. Who decides what is beautiful? History has thrown some very strange features into the spotlight, making women go wild to attain these ridiculous ideals.
Some of the most stunning works of art in the world of photography are those inspired by paintings.
Be that emulating beautiful art from periods such as the Renaissance or the splendor of Rococo; or taking inspiration from the details of a divine piece of couture and experimenting with 3d Modeling + Digital Painting – the results of painting inspired photography are always mesmerizing.
