April's issue of the Spanish magazine AR featured a series of fashion photographs inspired by Tamara de Lempicka's paintings. I think the result looks great.

The Caixa Galicia Foundation provided images of the paintings

Not so long ago I went to the cinema to watch Caramel. The atmosphere of this film is that of Almodóvar meets Middle East. When the film was finished something happened that hadn't happened to me in quite a while. I remained stuck to the chair and just didn't want to leave. I would have liked to remain forever in that ochre and honey coloured world. A world where there are problems and worries and troubles but also friendship and laughter and delight in beauty.

A current exhibition now taking place in Mexico is showing pieces from ancient Egypt together with pieces from prehispanic cultures, with special attention to representations of Isis, the Egyptian goddess and Quetzalcoatl, the prehispanic divinity...mm, interesting idea and the result of a great collaborative effort.
