Art Basel Photo Diary

11th December, 2015

The week of Art Basel is always one of my favorites, as it’s brimming with inspiration: new artists to discover, old favorites to revisit, and plenty of glamorous people to ogle. The eyes delight! Below, a few memories from this year’s fairs…

This rebar-veined, strawberry-sprinkled, concrete goddess definitely reads ‘future relic’ to me.  BELOW| Zaha Hadid’s modernist insertion in the atrium of the historic Moore Building was absolutely awe-inspiring.ArtBasel5 ArtBasel6ABOVE| ‘Gone But Not Forgotten’, a life-size woolly mammoth skeleton, rendered in 24-karat gold by Damien Hirst  BELOW|  Champagne with Bae (in top + pants by Theory)ArtBasel7 ArtBasel8 ArtBasel9ABOVE| At the opening of Faena Hotel, in a Proenza Schouler gown and vintage bag  BELOW| ‘Rachel in the Garden’, by John CurrinArtBasel10ArtBasel12ABOVE| White-hot Miami nights call for vintage turquoise earrings, a Stone Cold Fox dress, Maiyet slip and Baraboux clutch

    Beautiful photos and wonderful exhibition too. Loved your dress to attend the hotel opening.


  • Wow! Classy outfits. Beautiful contemporary paintings. However, the photo on which you smile with Zach evokes warmth and makes you stop for a second and think – oh fairy tales still exist. I have been following your blog for years now, and you are such an inspiration for me! And not only in terms of fashion, style and ‘upgrading the everyday’. As a non-native English speaker, constantly looking for improving my language skills, reading your blogposts was sometimes challenging, but in the same time reading it was fun and helped me to expand my vocabulary. I love the way you write and play with words! Looking forward to your loooong posts. 🙂
