Eva rocks the face off W’s July cover.
Love the sultry richness of the shots. Also really wanting an almost nude/peachy palette for my lips/nails. Read more/See more here.
I’ve thought Kojii Helwein was swell for a while now. Same goes for Mercedes Helwein. Mercedes’ artwork is just speaks to my generation and those a few years ahead and following. Her eye blows life into illustration. Now that I’m taking a course in Color Theory, I can’t get over how beautifully she blends her shades and works with tones.
So I just put two and two together than Kojii is sister-in-law to Merecedes. And lately they’ve collaborated on some video for Merecedes’ new short films:
Kojii’s husband Ali Helwein is Merecedes’ string playing music producing bro who provides titillating music for her videos.
The entire family is creative and inspiring. From her site:
Gottfried Helnwein — My dad. People love to refer to him as an “art provocateur”.
Ali Helnwein — My brother, who is a composer and contributes music to my videos.
Cyril Helnwein — My brother who is a photographer.
String Box Productions — Ali’s string-arrangement company.
Traction Avenue Chamber Orchestra — Ali’s orchestra.
Kojii Helnwein — My sister-in-law’s blog.
I have a third brother, Amadeus Helnwein, but he’s not present on the web yet, other than in my videos (the prominently featured blonde kid, often wearing glasses. He has 20/20 vision for the record and is far less of a nerd than I make him out to be ). He is a writer, finishing off college in Ireland. More on him to come.
Talk about one bad ass fam.

I’m super obsessed right now with the brightest and oddest pinks/fuchsias for lips/nails.
Charlotte Gainsbourg. In a comedy.
I Do: How to Get Married and Stay Single
If you’ve ever imagined what it might be like seeing Charlotte Gainsbourg on a daily basis – oh her outfits, her mannerism, her perfectly un-coiffed hair – then you have to rent this flick. Amusing at the very least, Charlotte has the best outfits…and I seriously think this could be a close role to what she’s like all the time. Honestly, her hair alone…the way it’s messy and unkept, is worth a look.
We get to see her take on the romantic comedy – French style.
Need I say more?

Hmpf. I never knew I NEEDED a YSL pendant on a thick black collar…until now.
