We have a beautiful new layout by the insanely talented Lucile from Lie Awake Inc. What do you think? Please comment. I hope you like it all as much as I do.
Best display is in Firefox or Internet Explorer 7. However, I’ve really tried to make the layout work in all kinds of browsers. Please let me know if you come across any bugs. Thank you!
And the Gallery is back! A HUGE thank you to Gertie from Fan-Sites.org for hosting our extensive gallery & video archives. I’ve been extremely busy transferring all the files to the new server and I hope you won’t come across missing files. If you do please let me know. Over the coming hours also the Television category should be filled with pictures.
Artist Biagio Black (www.biagio.tv) announces the inclusion of his “JUNOESQUE” collection at the 2008 little black dress pop-up boutique. The series was created specifically for the philanthropic event and features 6 foot tall portraits of celebrities including Keira Knightley, Eva Green, and Marion Cotillard in little black dresses. Sales from Black’s exhibit support the Junior League of Los Angeles.
A fashion-forward who’s who of Los Angeles will attend the opening reception of the “JUNOESQUE” exhibit on Wednesday, October 8th at 7:00 pm at the little black dress “Canvas and Couture” event at The Sunset, 8570 W. Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. The artwork will be viewable and available for purchase until Sunday, October 12th.
“Every painting in Biagio’s exhibit captures the essence of being a woman. Their bold colors and expressive complexions showcase every aspect of a woman’s personality: from the sexy vixen to the girl next door,” said Emmy Cortes Kasten, little black dress’ founder. “I feel that his artwork echoes the range of the classic ‘little black dress’ from the formal gala to the casual dinner with a friend.”
“These pieces range from cool to dark dreams. Iconic, distant, soulful. These women are pop culture royalty. The fact that these classism killers are fashionable is inevitable. These iconographic works offer images in simple hi-contrast forms that follow essence,” notes Black.
The buzz around the JUNOESQUE series from private showings has already resulted in numerous commissions for portraitures. Black is currently working on a new series that explores the relationship between celebrity, royalty, and prostitution.
In other news, I have found a solution for the gallery on Friday evening. Ever since my computer hasn’t been turned off, constantly downloading the files from the server and uploading to the new one. Stay tuned!
What a night! All of a sudden it looked to me as if the whole site was gone. 2 oversea calls and one email later I knew that my gallery installation was causing trouble on my host’s server. After I had made the gallery directory unavailable my account was thankfully reinstated. Until the still remaining issue can be resolved – I don’t know yet how long this will take – I’m afraid we won’t have any gallery. Thank you for your patience and understanding and rest assured that I’m working hard on finding a solution.
I’ve once again taken up the task of completing the ‘new’ gallery. Although I haven’t worked on it since early April don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten. After today’s updates the gallery now contains the complete event galleries for the years 1998 – 2006. Not only have I transferred all the photos from the old gallery but I’ve also sorted any additional pictures I could find on my hard disk and uploaded them for your viewing pleasure – a total of 811 pictures! Stay tuned for the 2007/2008 pictures.
After some difficulties caused by a hacker attack and a virus the site is finally back on track! I want to express my deepest gratitude for everyone who was able to spare a few dollars to help me pay for the restoration of the website – as well as those who expressed their sympathy. I will work hard over the coming days to bring this site up to date so stay tuned!
It is really not something I take for granted that so many people helped me out so here the initials of the 12 kind people – I’m forever grateful to you all:
D.H., A.R., M.M., L.A.C., P.F., A.T., M., G.S., A.V., M.A., R.M., M.S.
Magnifique Marion Cotillard is currently featured as Site of the Month over at our family site Introducing Mélanie Laurent – your stop for everything about Marion’s costar and immensely talented French actress Mélanie Laurent. Thank you very much! Please be sure to head over and visit the lovely site!
After almost 8 months I have installed a new layout for the site. I know I’m a bit late – it’s been already 3 weeks – but I decided to put up a layout in honour of Marion Cotillard’s Oscar win. Credit for the design and coding goes to my friend Laura. Hasn’t she created a beautiful layout? I am more than pleased with it and hope you like it too.
In view of time restraints I haven’t put up new content except for an overview of all the previous site layouts. Also you will find that the gallery features a new theme and additional functionality, hopefully making it more accessible and interactive.
