Patti Smith and Klaus Biesenbach

Squeezing all 37 of these artists, visionaries, icons and iconoclasts into our September 30th anniversary issue was about the best birthday present we can imagine. (Shooting everywhere from Wyoming to Tokyo was a sweet party favor.) But as Patti Smith suggests in this feature, this is no exhaustive list. OGs are everywhere: some have already changed the world, some are building toward their moment and some are reading this magazine right now. So to the OGs featured here, and to all fierce, fabulous trailblazers out there, this one’s for you.

ART: Robert Wilson Turns Lady Gaga Into Art at The Louvre

A pop artist as the subject of fine art recreating fine art, which in subject and theory serves as an allegory for the identity of the pop artist. Art and pop happening at the same damn time.  – –

“I want to have an exhibition at The Louvre with all my fashions and technologies. I´d want it to be like art pieces with explanations and inspirational references. I want to do things that have nothing to do with my own artistic ego.” Lady Gaga (2010) – See more at: http://www.wetheurban.com/post/67985499397/art-robert-wilson-turns-lady-gaga-into-art-at-the#sthash.A8IongGx.dpuf

My Fashion Pet Peeves

Fashion can be seen as a way of expressing yourself and different people have different fashion style, sometimes people go overboard all in the name of ”fashion”. I have no right to judge anyone fashion style or sense because I know I have committed fashion crimes on many occasion. So without further ado,  ::: MY FASHION PET PEEVES ::: #8. Deep V neck T-shirts on guys: Really don’t know where to start on this new fashion craze. #7.  – – more

Colombia Fashion Week where butt implants, blow and plastic surgery rein supreme

A trade show attached to Colombia Moda is, in the words of Ms Duboc, ‘more high street than high fashion,’ bursting with bootylicious bottoms, curvaceous figures, impossibly bouncy breasts, bronzen skin and white teeth.  Plastic surgery is clearly the norm, if not openly spoken about. One underwear model patently lies, claiming her figure is 100 per cent natural. Over at the main fashion week’s competitor, Moda Para El Mundo, the focus is even less on fashion and more on bling and booties. An incredulous Ms Duboc clearly has a hard time focusing, surrounded by glutes of epic proportions.

‘People’s arses are such a massive distraction from anything else,’ she says. ‘It’s kind of impossible to talk about anything else. It’s just ridiculous.’

Male Model Andrej Pejic Recreates Iconic Nastassja Kinski Snake Portrait

Androgynous Supermale model (and Gloss fixation) Andrej Pejic was proclaimed “Stylemaker of the Year” by OUT magazine, ranking high on their list of influential LGBT people. The blurb is brief but features that kind of intelligent unwillingness to take himself too seriously we’ve come to really like about Pejic (on his decision to wear a skirt for a party at Buckingham Palace: “Let’s face it, we all love a good queen”). Real surprise, however, is this portrait:

…it is a homage to the iconic portrait of Nastassja Kinski taken by the late, great Richard Avedon. How fun hwey?
