Mat Maitland: Altered Beauty

A throwback to this exhibit by Mat Maitland, coined the digital Warhol, using 2018 beauty trends on classic icons of the category. These timeless dime pieces didn’t need to be altered, neither do some of you. There is nothing wrong with modifying yourself if it brings you joy and gives you confidence. However there is a line that’s been crossed, you all look the same. I literally scroll through my insta explore page and mix people up all the time. Where is that thing that makes you unique, one of a kind, memorable? Also it’s aging the skin of young girls dramatically. Think, are you doing it to fit in? Are you doing it because you don’t love yourself? Are you doing it to be the object of another being, one that isn’t valued? Are you doing it to be someone other than you? Why? Shout out to Dame Elizabeth Taylor, we have the same birthday!

Style With Lee Radziwill

“I can’t think of any woman more feminine than Lee Radziwill, not even Audrey Hepburn.” Truman Capote said of the socialite. The brilliant, chic baby sister of Jackie-O; despite their competitive relationship Lee styled her sister on numerous occasions.

The pisces Princess, who got her last name after marrying Polish Prince Stanislaw Albrecht Radziwill, had a style that was minimal, yet embellished. A plain white gown covered by an ornamental jacket, a red dress made sophisticated by the placement of straps across her chest, closed with a decorative brooch. She was balanced glamour, refined, chic and always memorable.

Even black leather jackets were stand outs one: a fur color and a cinched waist, the other given depth with a snakeskin texture. They just don’t make them like they use to. Her outfits are put together so consciously it radiates her intelligence. What does your style say about you?
