Christian Louboutin again taps Peter Lippmann for a spring 2014 ad campaign not as overly sensual as fall 2013. Lippmann is inspired by flowers this season and impressionism’s artistic masterpieces. Louboutin’s accessories and red-soled shoes sit side by side with Monet, Van Gogh, Pissarro, Brueghel, Fantin-Latour, and Cézanne.

Eniko Mihalik By Diego Uchitel Returns Anne To Vietnam & Reflections On The Heart Of Darkness

Anthropologie has always been one of my favorite stores. As a founder of the style fusion, global marketplace shopping vision, Anthropologie has always taken us to far away places. This season Anthropologie goes to Vietnam with Hungarian model Eniko Mihalik leading photographer Diego Uchitel on a stylish romp through this Asian paradise.

If Vietnam-inspired at home decor is your passion, check out the Jardin Des Plantes collection online at Anthropologie.

Although I’ve travelled to most parts of Asia, a stamp from Vietnam is not in my passport collection. The closest I came was dropping down out of the clouds on a United flight from Bangkok to Hong Kong. I reflected on the place of Vietnam in my consciousness from 10,000 feet in 2008, with an update in 2010.

This reflection in not light reading. You can find it in my blog — which is being reconstructed to bring all my serious writing to one place: Vietnam | Black Hawk Helicopters | September 11| Anne Looks Into the Heart of Darkness. ~ Anne

Brooklyn Artist Wangechi Mutu Confronts Women As Active Protagonists

Wangechi Mutu by Kathryn Parker AlmanasKenyan born Brooklyn artist Wangechi Mutu joins Lupita Nyong’o, who last night added a SAG Award for supporting actress in ‘12 Years a Slave’ to her blockbuster week, on Forbes’ recent 20 Young Power Women in Africa 2013.

i just stumbled into Wangechi Muti while researching more info on Hans Silvester’s recent Hermes 2014 spring campaign. Silvester’s splendid photographs of the Omo Valley people are a key inspiration for GlamTribale.

Mutu’s work is currently on view at the Brooklyn Museum in the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art’ until March 9, 2014 in an exhibition called ‘A Fantastic Journey’.

Born in Nairobi, Kenya, Mutu scrutinizes globalization by combining found materials, magazine cutouts, sculpture, and painted imagery. Sampling such diverse sources as African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry, pornography, and science fiction, her work explores gender, race, war, colonialism, global consumption, and the exoticization of the black female body. Mutu is best known for spectacular and provocative collages depicting female figures—part human, animal, plant, and machine—in fantastical landscapes that are simultaneously unnerving and alluring, defying easy categorization and identification. Bringing her interconnected ecosystems to life for this exhibition through sculptural installations and videos, Mutu encourages audiences to consider these mythical worlds as places for cultural, psychological, and socio-political exploration and transformation.

In a promotional video produced for her exhibition at the Nasher Museum, Mutu states “The power for me in this is to keep the figure−the story of the female in the center… to keep discussing and talking about women as active, as protagonists. Good, bad, whatever it is that they are, that they are part of the reason that we here.” In every act the “triumphant warrior female” of Ms. Mutu’s fantasia is shamelessly defiant and all the more delicious for it, writes Wall Street International Magazine.

‘The End Of Eating Everything’, directed and written by Wangechi Mutu is is enjoying a sold-out debut at Sundance this week. The eight-minute short “traces the journey of a flying, planetlike creature navigating a bleak skyscape. This sick soul is lost in a polluted atmosphere without grounding or roots, led by hunger toward its destruction.” The film trailer is posted in AOC Salon, along with an interview with the creators about consumption and the destruction of our planet.

Lupita Nyong'o, Lensed By Sharif Hamza, Wins Critics Guild Award For '12 Years A Slave'

Perfect timing for photographer Sharif Hamza’s editorial ‘Free Spirit’ featuring actress Lupita Nyong’o for Dazed & Confused February. Nyong is styled by Robbie Spencer in bold artistry, designed to be in perfect harmony with spring’s focus on the arts.

Lupita Nyong’o is beaming today, after receiving a standing ovation for winning Best Supporting Actress at Thursday’s The Critics’ Choice Awards. Her performance in the film ‘12 Years A Slave’ helped earn the film Best Picture Award and also Best Adapted Screenplay.

Mexico City-born, Kenyan-raised Lupita tells Dazed’s Ayesha A Siddiqi that British director Steve McQueen reviewed over 1000 women to play the role of field slave Patsey.

In one scene from the movie Patsey “sits humming to herself making cornhusk dolls, her long fingers trembling slightly as she braids the fibres, the raised scar tissue on her cheek the result of a jealous outburst from her master’s wife. We learn that this scene — played with an incredible veracity by Nyong’o, was her own idea.

Lupita Nyong’o also received a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for her role in ‘12 Years A Slave’, her first feature film credit.

The actress also covers the February issue of W Magazine. The 30-year-old Lupita, who graduated from Yale’s School of Drama in 2012, now lives in Brooklyn. Bravo! - Anne
