Monet's Girl

Comparisons between art and fashion shoots aren't always obvious, or even evident at lot of the time, but every now and then a really good one comes along to enjoy.
 I just saw this shoot for December's issue of German Vogue, and was instantly reminded of Monet's paintings of his wife Camille, particularly the ones painted on the beach
The Beach at Trouville, 1870 
Monet painted this in the open air, proof of which is in the sand stuck in the paint. The composition is thought to be extremely unusual for the time, due to its tight crop and lack of symmetry.

Faux Fur

This coat has been at the back of my wardrobe for a few years now, after an ex boyfriend said I looked like a Golden Labrador in it (don't necessarily think this was insult in his mind, he really loved dogs).
Here I am slightly overheating Westfield.
 I think I will dig this back out properly for winter. Never sure about light coloured fur, but as this is so big and warm I don't think I will be able to resist, even if I do look a little canine.
