In large, anonymous cities there are moments when being open to an unexpected stranger promises an encounter that’s routinely brief, largely banal and occasionally unforgettable. Rachel was one of those fortunate meetings that we have all too rarely but that linger with us for longer than we expect. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon and we crossed paths at the MoMA PS1 in Queens, NY. It’s hard to explain what lured us to her; it could have been her flourishing yet holed-up sweatshirt or perhaps her vibrant choice of lipstick, which contended well with Maria Lassnig’s intensely hued artwork. Only lasting a handful of minutes, our bracing interaction with Rachel was like a vivid blur. Soon after, she excused herself, explaining that she should hurry back to her studio, where she planned to use that day’s museum stimulation to work on some new designs for her lingerie label. (photo by Xavier Aaronson)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Pari is kind of like our muse.  On her own blog, she’s taken the intersection between fashion and art to another level by putting her own stunning twist to dressing for the arts.

Pari pairs her style with the exhibition she plans on visiting. Last weekend, we stretched our own rules that narrow down who we babe’out with. Instead of bumping into some art-gawking style maven by chance encounter, Pari and I actually scheduled a rendezvous at the MoMA PS1. 

I’m not proud of our code-breaking orchestration but sometimes you gotta bend the law for an opportunity to achieve something exquisite. And in this case, Pari is too ill for the law.

Simplicity always wins.  After a brief tour of the Free Wheel bicycle exhibition at the Holon Design Museum, the sprightly Anaël comes gunnin’ straight for us camera with her perfectly paired getup.  The beautiful bending architecture you see in the background is  a creation by museum designer Ron Arad. Here’s to a sublime start to the Spring. (photo by Sarah Peguine)

Style is much like a sword that is sharpened over time. Marlene was a charming staff member who had the most elegant touches we’ve ever seen at the Guggenheim. Here she is photographed during her shift, lookin’ straight gorgey. (photos by Xavier Aaronson)

I’ve never seen someone express and comport themselves so harmoniously with the arts as Sofya did. The LACMA museum is the expansive sea to this babely fish. (photos by Allen Ying)

Phyllis at MoMA PS1 by Xavier Aaronson

In a bland hallway, I saw a wandering pile of flowy confetti. Phyllis was spotted in the foyer of the MoMA PS1. She admitted that her jacket was scooped up at the dollar store and I loved her that much more for it. Good style doesn’t need to come at an exorbitant price. Plus, it’s probably best to save your loot for the museum entrance, anyway.

Why does Charlotte appear to be floating on cloud nine? Maybe it’s because we were able to skirt the six-hour wait time to enter the MoMA’s Rain Room. Or is it the satisfaction from crossing the Rain Room off her list of must-see NYC attractions, before returning home to France the next day. Charlotte is a talented artist studying fine art in Strasbourg. (more…)

Anne Ravensroft at British Museum by Xavier Aaronson

Anna knits her own clothes, so it’s no wonder we spotted her in the tapestry and woven art exhibition at the British Museum. We then took a stroll through the Grand Staircase to take a couple quick snaps. More photos here.

Tainá Nogueira at OCA Folklore Museum

This little white, flouncy dress by Le Lis Blanc packs such a punch that crowds disperse in reverse hypnotism. Here’s Taniá – featured again, because we love her and we can – in front of the OCA museum in São Paulo, showing a pinch of skin at their exhibition on religious works of art from the Vatican.

Annie Rosen at New Museum w/ Jessica Diamond's "Tribute to Kusama: Infinity"

All I want is to celebrate unsung beauties, the same way Jessica Diamond’s “Tribute to Kusama: Infinity” just wants to lionize the least selling color in the art world.

We spotted Annie at the New Museum last week. But instead of zooming in on Annie’s billowing hair, fierce eyebrows, crimson lips, and cheekily flowy dress, we thought it’d be more exciting if we just illustrated a sprinkling of babely hints.

It’s like Proust sort of said, let’s leave the super obvious hotties to the men with no imagination.

Alisadair McLellan shoots Edie Campbell for 032c Magazine 2

At my first Art History class  back in college, I arrived late to a crowded classroom, disproportionately dominated by women. These photos  by Alisadair McLellan of  Edie Campbell for 032c magazine remind me exactly of that first day and my first reaction, which was  to plant myself  in the front row, away from gorgeous and smarter-than-I distractions. The location  of the photos is uncertain but  if I had to guess, I’d say that the photos were taken at the Victoria and Albert Museum and perhaps also at the British Museum. I could be wrong. More photos  at It’s Nice That.
