We were at the fabulous new Pop Art show @ the Tate Modern recently, on a rainy day. I couldn't get over a handful of unrelated stylish women, wearing trenches and/or prints that just happened to work so beautifully with the exhibit in that particular room. I especially love the use of a print scarf as belt, as shown here, which I am definitely stealing (not literally: I AM NOT STEALING HER SCARF, just the idea).
I introduced myself to the woman, who was happy to pose. Her name is Claudia and she's Italian, which was kind of weird considering I was seeing my friend Claudia, who is also Italian, the very next day. (I also love the white summery dress with black tights. And I asked if her scarf was a real Pucci, but she said it was Hermes, I think. Which surprised me. )
No sooner had we taken a few shots than a guard came over & said we can't shoot in the gallery, no matter that we weren't shooting the art, but the people watching the art. At least he didn't confiscate my camera.
Andy Warhol, whose work you can still glimpse in these shots, is the one who said that someday everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes. Well if this blogger has her way, his prophecy shall be fulfilled. Some of you can get even twenty!
