L'Wren

As you may know the highly successful designer , model and business woman , L'Wren Scott was found dead of an apparent suicide on Monday morning.
Although I was never L'Wren's most devoted fan , I have always admired her work from a distance. I'm not going to pretend that she was always my favourite designer but she was a talented and valued model , designer and human being.
My favourite collection of hers was entitled "Yorkshire Pudding" ( S/S13) , in this collection she explored minimalist designs and colours as well as more extravagant detailed pieces.

As highlighted by Dazed Digital ,it emerged from the news coverage of L'Wren's death that the most important thing about her was being "the girlfriend of Mick Jagger". Highlighting that even in today's society many successful and important women are still only recognised as their partner's girlfriend or wife.
The magazine had picked out a few tweets expressing their disappointment with the media:
L'wren Scott had a name. She was also a fashion designer. @BBCNews should be ashamed of report saying "Mick Jagger's girlfriend" has died.
So sad that in media reports today, she was reduced to "the girlfriend of". L'Wren Scott was an accomplished designer & businesswomen.

Boy With Apple

I went to see Wes Anderson's latest creation,The Grand Budapest Hotel ,today at FACT , and I have to say it was excellent. The cinematography was spectacularly intriguing , as was the plot.It tells the story of Gustave H., a legendary concierge at  the famous Grand Budapest hotel and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who helps him on an adventure involving a renaissance painting named "Boy With Apple". The set and costumes were perfectly quirky and lavish.The whole film was very precise and oh so dreamy,  it was so far yet so close to reality : it was perfect.



A star studded cast included , Ralph Fiennes,Tilda Swinton, Willem Dafoe and Jude Law to name a few, but the actor who really stole the show was Tony Revolori playing the part of lobby boy , Zero.

You need to go and see this film as soon as possible , I promise you will love it just as much as Moonrise Kingdom or The Royal Tenenbaums or Rushmore or any other Wes Anderson film.It
will not be long until The Grand Budapest Hotel gains the highest of cult movie status'.
