ART + FASHION – Cannes 2013

Happy Wednesday!

I have not had a ton of time to review the fashion at Cannes this year but I did see this stunner on Nicole Kidman.  This might be one of my favorite red carpet dresses EVER.  I love, love, love it.

I also love it because it reminds me of one of my favorite contemporary painters, David Bates.  He has recently done a lot of work with flowers in vases and his chunky, loose, but strong brushstrokes really resonate with me.

When I win the lottery I will definitely be purchasing at least one of his original oils…
