Tyrants + Lederhosen

Nicola Formichetti is best known as the creative director of Thierry Mugler and Lady Gaga's personal stylist.  He will be one of many subjects represented in the Hilton Brother's newest exhibition showing February 9th at the Christopher Henry Gallery in Manhattan.  These images of Formichetti had previously appeared in Interview's Russian edition.  The show will also feature unseen imagery of people such as Debbie Harry and Jean-Michel Basquiat.  The show is entitled, "The Hilton Brother's :Tyrants + Lederhosen".


Superbowl Halftime Show

No surprise here...but Madonna killed it at last night's Superbowl Halftime Show!  She performed on a Roman themed stage with marching soldiers in full attire.  She shared the stage with other pop stars such as; Cee-lo Green, Nicki Minaj, M.I.A., and LMFAO.  She performed a series of classics as well as her new single "Give Me All Your Luvin".  And of course, in true Madonna style she did the whole performance in couture, from her headpiece made by the great Philip Treacy to her three different Givenchy Haute Couture outfits, and did I mention she danced the whole thing in massive Miu Miu heels??? Girl's still got it!


Victoria Beckham for i-D

"I don’t follow fashion and I don’t follow trends, I just follow my instincts and think, what do I want to wear? What am I feeling for next season?"
Looking fierce Ms. Beckham!



Jeff Bark Goes Chasing Waterfalls

New York based photographer Jeff Bark captures a series of waterfalls with the human form dispersed throughout the landscape.  This creates a magical world in his large format prints.  The above image is from his Lucifer Falls collection, which was inspired by the need to get out of a studio and letting nature control the lighting etc.




Public Chicago

Public Chicago, another Ian Schrager hotel opened last fall.  It is a renovated version of the landmark Ambassador East built in 1926.  His goal is to give guests the perfect experience delivering exactly what they need without any added unnecessary glitz.  This combination leaves the guests relaxed in a down-to-earth environment with just enough class and elegance.
