Gwen Stefani Creates Punk-Themed Nails for OPI

Starting in January, you can "Lay Down That Base" with Gwen Stefani — not in the recording studio, but at the nail salon. OPI announced that their newest collaboration will be with the expectant mother, in a collection inspired by the Met Ball's theme of “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” The standout shade will be a red inspired by Stefani's signature red lip, named "Over & Over A-Gwen," which will be available in a boxed set with other nail-art elements like Swarovski black crystals, studs, and other appliqu├ęs ("Why no spiderwebs?" asks the Cut's Diana Tsui). The aforementioned Lay Down That Base, when applied as a base coat to the collection's other polishes, transforms to impart an extra-shiny, chromelike finish.

But we know that half the fun of OPI colors are the pun-tastic names. Other shade names in the collection are Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, and In True Stefani Fashion.

Paola Pivi: Ok so you are better than me, so what?

Galerie Perrotin, New York / September 18 – October 26, 2013
Galerie Perrotin inaugurated its New York space with an exhibition by the audacious and playful Italian artist Paola Pivi.
Pivi creates artworks that are disorienting and simultaneously poetic. Though formally different, her work pushes the limit of what can be
done in this world as an artwork. Her first comprehensive solo exhibition in the United States will take over both floors of the gallery and feature exclusive new works. On the ground floor, Pivi will present an installation of eight fantastic creatures. The polars bears will return in Paola’s art! An unexpected performing sculpture, “Money machine (true blue, baby I love you)” will also be on display on the lower level, evoking the topography of the New York building which was previously a bank and hosted a vault.
Nomadic by nature, Paola Pivi has lived all over the world, including Shanghai, the remote island of Alicudi in southern Italy, and Anchorage, Alaska. She is presently in India. Pivi first exhibited at Viafarini in Milan in 1995, the same year she enrolled in the Brera Academy of Art in Milan. In 1999, she was co-awarded the Golden Lion for the best national pavilion (Italy) at Harald Szeemann’s Venice Biennial. For this venue, which featured five Italian artists, Pivi presented
“Untitled (airplane)”, an inverted Fiat G-91 airplane resting on its cockpit.
Last year, the artist was commissioned two original public artworks in New York City: “How I roll”, a project by Public Art Fund, a Piper Seneca airplane rotat- ing on its wingtips, installed near Central Park at Doris C. Freedman Plaza, and “Untitled (zebras)”, a striking image of zebras on a snow-covered mountaintop on the 25-by-75-foot High Line Billboard at West 18th Street. Like all of her photographs, this image is a live-action still, presented without digital intervention. Another of her iconic photographs, “Untitled (donkey)”, shows a lonely donkey on a boat floating in the Mediterranean Sea.
This solo show in New York will be Paola Pivi’s seventh exhibition with the gallery.
On this occasion, a monograph on Paola Pivi has been published by the gallery and Damiani featuring texts by Massimiliano Gioni and Jens Hoffmann.

V Magazine & Ford Models Launch First Collaborative Female Model Search

V Magazine and Ford Models have just announced a new partnership to find the next Female face of fashion. Young women from around the world can enter a chance to win a coveted fashion shoot by a world renowned photograph to grace the inside of V Magazine.

On the heels of V Man’s wildly successful model search with Ford Models, which is known for finding some of the best undiscovered talent in the world, including Matt Terry who went on to star in Calvin Klein’s underwear ads and Joshua Dolce who became the face of Fendi, sister publication V Magazine launches its inaugural search for female models in partnership with Ford.

The winner of the V Magazine Ford Model Search, chosen by a panel of industry insiders, will star in a fashion shoot taken by a top photographer in the Spring Preview issue of V Magazine.
Just to give you an idea of the level of this opportunity for the winner - the winner of V Man’s last contest with Ford was photographed by Karl Lagerfeld and featured in V Man’s 10th Anniversary issue out in September.
The coveted model competition is live now: We’ll be announcing the photographer later this week and the contest is open through the end of the month.   
The contest is one of the last standing model searches that is open to anyone in the world. Entry is easy and done online through Ford and V Magazine’s websites – a genuine opportunity for a young woman to change her life. Hashtag for Twitter and Instagram: #VFORDMODELSEARCH.

SWANS: Legends of the Jet Society

Once the epitome of soigne worldly glamour, the words "jet set" conjure images of exotic global destinations and golden beaches; clandestine redez-vous on opulent yachts; star-studded parties in palatial mansions, the women in couture gowns and glittering jewels, the men in debonair tuxedos. The people of the jet set were the last vestiges of a leisured and cultivated age, a world of taste and culture, elegance and beauty. 
Swans: Legends of Jet Society captures the spirit of this world, in which today's technology was the stuff of science fiction, when foreign travel was the preserve of a privileged cosmopolitan few. From bygone aristocracy to modern mega-wealthy moguls, this stunning volume regales with escapades of travel, money, sex and adventure. These are the legends of the jet set - tales of glamour, excitement,  and exclusivity.
SWANS - Legends of the Jet Society, $195
