Through a project for work, I came across some photos by the iconic photographer Richard Avedon.  Already being a huge fan, something struck me even more yesterday.  After critiquing many photographers work, past and present, there is something substantially different about Avedon’s photos that impressed me even more. Each one, standing alone outside of it’s collection, has a way to knock you off your seat. They are dramatic, poetic, simple and dignified, which is why he remains to be remembered as one of the best.

Richard Avedon (May 15, 1923 – October 1, 2004) was an Americn Photographer.  The New York Times said after his death that, “his fashion and portrait photographs helped define America’s image of style, beauty and culture for the last half-century.” (wikipedia)


NYLON + Volcom toasted to Olivia Wilde to celebrate her August Denim Issue Cover at The Mondrian, West Hollywood.

The weather couldn’t have been better as we sipped on complimentary organic vodka under the stars and mingled amongst some amazing talent: these are the times I actually like West Hollywood. It was one of those city nights, fashionably impressed, cheersing Aziz Ansari, that makes you remember why you go out.

Olivia Wilde looked more beautiful than it should be allowed, Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous) happens to be just as adorable as when he played the journalist who fell for Kate Hudson and the Hilton sisters seemed to close the party down, typical.  A beautiful crowd, everyone was relaxed on the couches around the pool and of course keeping it L.A. proper, with none other than Kanon Organic Vodka. Other notables included Crystal Castles, Samantha Ronson and designer Jeremy Scott.
