Yesterday was the opening of Inez's and Vinoodh's show. A fairly small "retrospective" of their prestigious portraits were shown, combining past and present work. Portraits, and still life's of flowers, were √† l'ordre du jour. We're told Inez &Vinoodh vow a boundless love for mother nature, hence both passions are exposed: People & Botanics. 


I'll give the photographer & fxxing amazing image maker David Sims a better mark, and major thumbs up in the botanic field. Inez's & Vinoodh's flowers convey less emotions, but my oh my...the portraits are simply fantastic,  to the point you're debating asking the galerist the very NO NO question:
- "How much?". A print that size, with the emotions it shakes of, must be a rate as high as Gaga singing just for you. 


As I'm gazing into Gaga, as Joe Calderone, Gaga's alter-ego she created in 2011 ( Jo apparently is an Italian-American from New-Jersey); a person approachs me.
 " Who is it ?"- Voil√†, the result of the work of an future pop icon, a fashion consultant and the talent of Inez&Vinoodh will even fool the consul of Italy ( we got taking...). Undeniably a stately show; small but impactful. For those who, for the past 20 years have solidly followed their work, you'll be wishing you had the dough...

Trish Goff - Possibly, one of my favourite portraits of all times, you don't do sexier than Trish here. 
I want to look just like that at home.
