My photo
Visual Journalism Student/ Photographer/Fashion Blogger. I love finding beauty where others don't, and I believe art can be found almost everywhere. Old and new, we can learn from all, and getting to a place where you can realize that is probably the most freeing a person can feel ever. But basically I love Fashion, and the designers are the artists with visions and their canvas' are us and the world, and I love helping spreading that message. "Ultimately isn't that fashion is about? We're all a bunch of big kids playing dress up." Feel free to e-mail me @ andrewwwhester@gmail.com to talk about anything!

Murakami for Google and Mugler Mens SS12 goes NSFW.

The First day of Summer "Google" logo was designed by artist, Takashi Murakami. I think it's perfect. My Macbook is beginning to be covered with Murakami stickers I came across in POP Magazine featuring cover shoot with he and Britney Spears in 2010.

With the MUGLER SS12 Menswear presentation approaching, creative director Nicola Formichetti has been working on a short film to preview his collection and an XXX film that will be available for view on Xtube.com on the day after the presentation. The collection,"Brothers of Arcadia", is based off of his growing up in Rome and how the combination of the baroque and classical architecture are expressed all through Rome.

UPDATE: Watch the NSFW Fashion Film by Nicola Formichetti and Branislav Jankic here!

Gaga Jerky, James Franco shoots a Menswear Daze for ELLE, & Florence Welch is Touring in Gucci.

Gaga Jerky 'on the Edge', James Franco shoots Agyness Deyn as James Dean for ELLE and also sells his body for a good cause.

Lady Gaga has released another video from her ballad filled 'Born This Way'.
"The Edge of Glory"

& Gaga's infamous meat-dress has been turned into jerky to be displayed in the
Rock n' Roll's Hall of Fame. Definitely some 5-Star jerky in my opinion.

"Raw Raw Raw Raw Raw meat..."

Jerky gone 'Gaga'.

James Franco shot Agyness Deyn for ELLE JULY 2011 in a Menswear/James Dean inspired shoot.

I am jealous,...to say the least.
Franco also supported amFAR (an AIDS research non-profit) at a Gala/benefit by auctioning off a PERSONAL photo shoot with himself and the winner.
The winning bid went for $17,000!
(Story from the GQ Eye)

***Also spotted speaking with Ke$ha at the event, which is actually more interesting than the price tag on that photo shoot, well to me anyway!

News was recently released that the beauty that is Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine will be wearing Gucci on her Summer 2011 tour. I can't think of anything better.

This trip was a life changing experience for me. It was just so surreal to stand around and take it all in knowing how many artists have come and gone after being inspired by such a beautiful cities. Paris helped me make up my mind on where I would like to live other than my dream of New York. The air, people, lifestyle just exude such a positivity to project the BEAUTIFUL in life.
