If there's one type of photography that can be called authentic and ironic, it would be street photography. Depicting human behavior in a way that makes us laugh takes both a watchful eye and a great sense of timing. One photographer who does this well is Dorset UK-based Paul Russell. His photos have appeared in The Guardian, The Independent and BBC's own… Continue
Hollywood starlet Blake Lively covers the October issue of Marie Claire UK. The 23-year-old is best known for her role as Serena van der Woodsen on the hit show Gossip Girl, but she is set to make an impression as Krista, a drug-addicted single mother, in Ben Affleck’s new movie, The Town.
“I’m on a very commercial show, so the last… Continue

Pretty aren't they? Well, what you're looking at aren't a kind of surreal rainbow coloured clams, or rainbow coloured lake, but actually a large scale sea made up of 600,000 unwanted discs to create that glittering reflected rainbow effect. Well, that's one way of recycling cds.
Bruce Munro, with the help of UK press and BBC Wiltshire radio, urged readers and listeners to send in their discs to his workshop, and the response was massive, and… Continue
While I'd normally skip over any photo shoot that has to do with whiny teenage girls, I can't help but love this editorial for Vanity Fair UK's July 2010 issue. Norman Jean Roy photographs the beautiful stars of Twilight and unveils their glamorous side. Ashley Greene, Dakota Fanning and Bryce Dallas Howard never looked so stunning.… Continue
For those of you who are fans of Scott Schuman's famous Sartorialist blog, meet Garance Doré. Rumor has it that the two are dating and judging by Doré's fabulous, Schuman-style fashion photos, 'tis probably true. In fact, the fashion powerhouse couple is even getting ready for their…
Today I checked out e-architect and saw this elegant street development by London's Studio Seilern Architects on an extremely challenging site base (424 sq m). They are given a space where it is wrapped around with 3 buildings from the 60's, forming a hole that creates the issue of not receiving natural lights at the bottom. Studio… Continue
I'm really diggin' the street art of UK-based Copyright. His paintings represent ideals from the modern world and culture, portrayed within classic imagery of simple beauty, often depicted by butterflies, flowers and beautiful women.
The girls he paints have a raw realism and seem to tell epic tales through their haunting gaze. Using a mixture of classic…
British designer Thomas Heatherwick recently released images of his updated design for the UK pavilion at the Shanghai Expo 2010. Awarded the commission in September 2007, Heatherwick has come up with a new six-storey pavilion under the theme "Better City, Better Life" that will dramatically demonstrate the creativity and innovation of the UK.
The "affordable and chic" British retailer Topshop has unveiled its summer Kate Moss for Topshop collection, which hits stores tomorrow.
This is actually the supermodel’s 10th collection for Topshop, featuring styles inspired by Morocco, Pocahontas and um, Kate's "own summer holiday styles." Although the price point is not out of reach, but let's be real here. I doubt we'll be seeing the old girl in the threads on her real vacation.
I've always been of the opinion that if you name your band "The [something]," you will likely succeed. If you throw in a dreamy male lead singer with moppy rockstar hair, bedroom eyes, a tuxedo, and a voice that always sounds like you're singing from the back of a smoky bar room, you're surely on the road to stardom.
Now only if your drummer can somehow manage to seduce Drew Barrymore .. don't worry, it's not… Continue

Zaha Hadid in collaboration with Manchester International Festival and Manchester Art Gallery is set to present a groundbreaking concert hall for their 2009 Festival. Capable of accommodating a small audience of 200 people, the intimate chamber will “create a near-perfect visual and sonic environment,” for a series of nine concerts, in which three internationally… Continue
It seems there's no end to Stella McCartney's creativity. An animal lover, Stella has often used the silhouette of a horse in her textiles and fashion design. Now she's reprised Lucky Spot, a gorgeous crystal "chandelier" installation at Belsay Castle in the UK. Lucky Spot was originally created by the fashion designer back in 2004 for a special exhibit at the castle, and has returned (her/him) there in a special engagement for the Easter… Continue

What is this Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate bar and where can I get one? The awesome advert features a lad and a lass who engage in a fierce battle of expressions. Confection perfection!
My vote is for the girl, who kills it with a surprise attack of balloon scratching.
The Goldie Hawn of our generation, romantic comedy champ Kate Hudson, looking as glamorous as ever in Elle magazine's February 2009 issue. Photographed by Carter Smith. Styled by Elle's creative director Joe Zee, of whom I've become a fan after watching CW's guilty pleasure reality series Stylista - the chubby, more insecure sister of… Continue
I love the creativity and thought behind these underwater sculptures. Instead of trying to create unchanging and lasting works, Jason de Caires encourages the organic growth of coral and other organisms across his creations. The texture, chemical composition and design actively encourage the settlement of embryonic corals. Areas of shelter and void space provide a… Continue
