Chameleonic Musician David Bowie Is Constellation Near Mars. David Bowie had several phases and styles in his creation as a musician: MOD (60s) - HIPPIE (60s) Space Oddity - GLAM (1970 - 1974) The Man Who Sold World (1970) Diamond Dogs (1974) - PLASTIC SOUL ( 1975 - 1976) Young Americans (1975) Station to station (1976) - BERLIN (1976 - 1979) Low, "Heroes" and Lodger - NEW ROMANTIC (1980 - 1988) Let's Dance (1983) and two more albums and back to rock with the band Tin Machine - ELECTRONIC (1995 - 2001) Outside (1995) Earthling (1997) - NEOCLÁSSICO (2002 - 2016) Hours (1999) - The Next Day (2013) and Blackstar (2016). His entire Creation as a Musician was guided from the beginning by his continuous quest as a man to attain Divine Enlightenment. And Bowie left all that, duly documented in his vast musical oeuvre. His Life Trajectory was ALL Inscribed in His Musical Work. David Bowie devoted himself to modern occultism. His own definition of himself: "I'm closer to the Golden Dawn Immersed in Crowley's uniform I'm not a prophet or a man of stone Just a mortal with the potential of a superman." - Quicksand. Everything documented from start to "end." With Great Style and Great Elegance. And for ALL that, he was honored with a lightning-shaped constellation. Bowie is now made up of seven stars: Sigma Librae, Spica, Alpha Virginis, Zeta Centauri, SAO 204 132, SAO 241 641 and Beta Sigma Octantis Trianguli Australis. Just as it was drawn on his face on the cover of the album Alladin Sane (1973), and the location chosen for the lightning-shaped constellation, it was very close to Mars, as in the song Life on Mars from the album Hunky Dory (1971). At the request of a radio station in Brussels, the observatory for space studies MIRA (Institute for Astronomical Research of Monterey), registered the constellation in honor of the musician. As I Said, Hamlet, by William Shakespeare: There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. That's why David Bowie, will forever be in my Gallery, as an example of one of the Most Elegant Men. (To read + Articles 2020, 2021 Click Article Archive, Click the month, scroll down, just read!)

Grace Jones Model Actress Singer, From Fashion to Music, Full Artist, Producer and Bond Girl. Many were inspired by it, but few can rival the fierce grandeur of this icon. Raised in Jamaica in Spanish Town in the 1950s in a Pentecostal home, it makes this nothing short of surprising. Jones' early years were her revolt, but it was the formation of an intrepid and defiant spirit. Her parents sought their fortune in America, leaving their children in the care of their maternal grandparents. All pastors, grandfather, father and brother. The grandparents ruled the offspring with an "iron fist" and a lot of conservatism. Grace refused to be intimidated. Years later, when she played the character May Day in the James Bond film A View to a Kill, she channeled the merciless gaze of the Grandparents. Parents took their children to Syracuse, New York, Grace already 13 years old. In his late teens, Jones embraced the 1960s American counterculture, moved to New York, immersing himself in a world fueled by music and drugs. She studied Theater at the State University of New York. At 18, she caught the eye of a Model scout, signing a contract with an Agency in New York. In the 70s, after being told that she would only succeed as a Model in America, if Europe first adopted her striking looks, she flew to Paris. She shared an apartment with Jerry Hall and Jessica Lange, frequenting the trendy Le Club Sept nightclub, became the center of attention. She has become part of the fashion elite, with friends like Karl Lagerfeld and model Pat Cleveland. At this time she appeared naked, except for a necklace of bones, at a party given to French politicians. The first time she tried ecstasy was under the tutelage of Dr. Timothy Leary. She danced and sang with Cleveland at the clubs she frequented. Cleaveland insisted that she sing. She finally got a producer. Jerry Hall said, it was obvious her talent was outside the fashion world. "You can't be famous for long unless you keep changing," Andy Warhol wrote in his diary. 'Grace Jones is an example of this'. She signed to British label Island. Albums, 'Portfolio', Nightclubbing, three albums, disco evolution to a fusion of funk, reaggae and Rock New Wave. Her appearance underwent a surprising transformation under the direction of her then lover, Jean-Paul Goude. Born in Paris, Goude trained as an illustrator and worked in advertising. He moved to New York to be the Art Director for American Esquire. It was there that the reticent Frenchman met Jones. They frequented Studio 54. She became an obsession for him, and they did everything together. 'At a time when everyone loved to dress up, Jones and Goude took it to the extreme,' said Paula Reed, author of the Design Museum's Fifty Fashion Looks That Changed, in which the duo appear. Goude as an art director and photographer, was the handler of the bow. Jones' appearance was unlike anything anyone had ever seen before. Her skin was darker and brighter... Her physique was more toned. She had that catwalk haughtiness but the growl of a street fighter. She was a spectacular contradiction: unique. For the cover of Nightclubbing, her body and face were coated in brown paint and she wore only an Armani jacket. Renowned stylist Christiaan Houtenbos, who lived in the same apartment block in New York, created her flat-tipped haircut using a men's razor. Under Goude's direction, Jones became a star. "It could equally be said that he could not have achieved status without her," Read said. 'Individually they were awesome...together they were atomic'. Jones appeared on Russell Harty's chat show. Feeling offended when she turned her back on him to interview another guest, she slapped him. Jones' reputation for being scary, but that was just her public posture, to close friends she had a soft side. Fashion designer and collaborator Philip Treacy said, "Her name was synonymous with danger, but she's really sweet." Jones described Goude as the Only Man who ever "made me bend my knees." She became pregnant by him but they split up, their son Paulo was born in November 1979. The baby shower was held by Andy Warhol and Debbie Harry at Garage, an exclusive club for Soho members. She took her baby to all the jobs she did. He played a role in "Conan the Destroyer", "A View to a Kill". Had a relationship with Dolph Lundgren, a six-foot-high Swede she met at a concert in Sydney, whom she hired as a bodyguard. A physical and intellectual ideal, majored in chemistry and chemical engineering, IQ 160 and speaks seven languages. After Jones landed him a role in 'A View to a Kill', they became in-demand celebrities in New York. Warhol described them as 'fabulous' and Helmut Newton filmed them nude as a modern Adam and Eve for playboy. As Lundgren's fame grew, the relationship ended. Jones continued making movies. She married Chris Stanley, producer of Bulletproof Heart, divorced within two years. She fell in love with another bodyguard, this time a Belgian named Atila Altaunbay. They got married in Rio, he was 21 and she was 48. The New York Times reported that, after the ceremony, they went straight to the Academy. The marriage lasted eight years. She has performed at unique shows around the world and appeared at red carpet events. In 2008, she returned with the acclaimed album "Hurricane". Produced by her then-fiancé Ivor Guest, the 4th Viscount Wimborne and relative of Princess Diana. They parted amicably a year later and she has remained single lately. In 2012, she was invited to perform the classic Slave to the Rhythm for the Queen at the Diamond Jubilee Concert outside Buckingham Palace. The performance brought her back into the public eye - she is currently recording new songs - and stars like Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Lorde cited her as inspiration. 'There's no one I love more than Grace Jones,' said Gaga. Jones declined a request for collaboration. 'I prefer to work with someone who is more Original and who is not copying me.' She is living in southwest London. She is Athena's grandmother, daughter of her son Paulo. For the past four decades, Jones has been a beacon for designers who need a muse to channel fearlessness, androgyny and sheer sex appeal. Jones is not just a fashion icon - she is also Cultural. Jones' beauty look codes; the flat geometric top, intensely contoured cheekbones and Keith Haring's body paint were mentioned by makeup artists and designers. Every now and then Jones will even lend his presence to a designer and take the journey full circle, stepping onto the catwalk with his bombastic signature and reminding the world that she's not just a point of reference to be listed in the collection's notes, but one of the most important performers and one of fashion's most timeless muses. Stylist Azzedine Alaia said, "She has something inside you that draws you," a close friend Jones met in his Paris days. 'She has a lot of energy and vitality''. Jones said, "I'm not a normal woman, that's for sure." And to me the admirable, beautiful and strong-willed woman Grace Jones is Josephine Baker Moderna.

Eyes Wide Shut Fractal Puzzle Strangely Beautiful Movie Tom Cruise Nicole Kidman Stanley Kubrick started out as a photographer for the New York magazine 'Look'. This explains a lot the perfect framing and stunning photography of his films and the visual and sensory experience we feel. Considered by many to be one of the greatest filmmakers. Reputably obsessive and meticulous, he has overseen, with all the attention to detail, every aspect of his films. A perfectionist, he commanded total control of his films, even the selection of books and newspapers that appeared in the background. His works have a visual and aural clarity, a demanding use of camera work, framing, lighting, positioning, special effects, music etc. Their unfolding narratives subvert traditional cinematic narrative conventions, leaving audiences perplexed. Kubrick's films are challenging because he tells a story in a way we're not used to. Master of narrative subtlety. Kubrick was a lifelong chess player. In Eyes Wide Shut, on each exploration trajectory he reveals unexpected details and layers of meaning, strategic orchestrations within a dream maze. Extraordinary film within its wide scope of themes and subjects. Sex is indeed the focus of the film, but the allusions to class, the world's ruling elite and powerful secret societies are significant. Also allusions that span literature, music, opera, mythology, religion, politics, history, etymology, cinema. Kubrick passed away 5 days after sending the final version to Warner Bros. This was the Master's last movie. The film Eyes Wide Shut was adapted from Traumnovelle, translated from the German means Dream Story, by Arthur Schnitzler, Austria, 1926, set in Vienna. Kubrick, upgraded to Contemporary. Tom Cruise plays Bill Hartford (Dr Bill, reference to a dollar bill), a wealthy New York doctor with an elegant high society clientele and a magnificent apartment on Central Park West, happily married to the beautiful Alice (reference to Alice in "Wonderland" a fairy tale about a privileged girl who is bored with her life and who "crosses the mirror" to end up in Wonderland"), (Nicole Kidman), former art gallery director, now a housewife, and takes care of her daughter. Troubled with each other by their flirtatious behavior, at a beautiful party hosted by an elite patient, Victor Ziegler (Sidney Pollack), and by drinking champagne and cannabis sativa, in home, has a furious fight in which Alice defiantly confesses her lustful thoughts to a naval officer in her past. During the party, Bill and Alice go their separate ways.Alice meets a man named Sandor Szavost, Hungarian, who asks her about Art and the Love of Ovid. Book series, written during ancient Roman times. The first book begins with an invocation to Venus - the planet associated with the goddess of eternal youth, goddess of beauty, fertility and physical love (sex). The star of Venus or Ishtar, appears several times in the film, and in the house and Victor Ziegler, where the party takes place. And Bill is talking to two models who flirt with him and who tell him they want to take him "where the rainbow ends"... Jealousy, Bill then goes on a nocturnal odyssey, in search of extramarital adventures, never accomplished , going through countless ordeals, even ending up in a secret society, uninvited, invading, where he witnesses scenes that shouldn't be profaned and public, in a luxurious house on Long Island. Since he was never initiated into that secret society, Bill shouldn't even have to to know it existed, let alone witness one of his "meetings." So how did he find out about it? Well, a little bird told him. Nick Nightingale At one point during his strange night out, Bill meets his old friend Nick Nightingale , who studied medicine with him, but did not graduate, at a jazz cafe. The professional pianist reveals to Bill that he is sometimes hired by mysterious people to play, blindfolded, at mysterious parties filled with women b onites. This information stirs and intrigues Bill because, since his conversation with his wife, he seems to be looking for some kind of... experience. Nick ends up making a big mistake and agrees to provide Bill with all the information he needs to access the site. A nightingale is the type of bird known to sing at night, just as Nick Nightingale “sings” secret information at the beginning of Bill's odyssey. The password to enter the ritual is “Fidelio”, which means “fidelity”, the main theme of the film. More importantly, as Nightingale points out, "Fidelio" is the name of an opera written by Beethoven... After getting the details of Nightingale, Bill rents a costume at a store called "Rainbow"... and then heads to Somerton, the property where the party is being held. The location selected to film the exterior scenes is Mentmore Towers, built in the 19th century as a country home for a member of the world's most prominent and powerful elite family: the Rothschilds. The internal scenes of the party were filmed at Elveden Hall, a private home in the UK designed to look like an Indian palace. When the "festivities" begin, a Tamil song called "Migration" plays in the background, adding to the South Asian atmosphere (the original version of the song contained an actual recitation of scriptures from the Bhagavad Gita, but the chant was removed in the final version of the film). This peculiar Indian atmosphere, combined with the scenes witnessed by Bill as he walks through the house, points to the most important part... Bill's journey as a whole has its meaning... The last lines of the film conclude and define the journey of Bill. After running around New York and getting turned on by all sorts of situations, Bill comes face to face with his wife and talks about how he is "awake" now. With its “life force” fully charged. Alice ends the film by completing a sentence... The meticulous symbolism and imagery of all of Stanley Kubrick's Works often communicate another dimension of meaning - one that transcends. To honor Stanley Kubrick's contribution to science fiction cinema, the highest mountain range on Pluto's moon, Charon, was named "Kubrick Mons" in April 2018. It has a Mythological Meaning. But the etymology of 'Charon' comes from the Greek, meaning 'sharp gaze' and 'fierce', 'lightning', or 'febrile eyes'. Eyes Wide Shut is a fractal puzzle of infinite dimensions. Kubrick introduces us to mythical theater. Watch the last work, performed by Master Stanley Kubrick. (To Read Articles 2020 and 2021+, Click Article Archive, Click Month, Scroll Down and Just Read)

Inspiring Movie Review, To Catch a Thief Grace Kelly Cary Grant Alfred Hitchcock Humor Beauty Elegance Fashion and Stunning Landscapes Cary Grant .... John Robie (The Cat) Grace Kelly .... Frances Stevens Film based on the novel by David Dodge. Cary Grant is John Robie, a retired jewel thief who lives quietly on the Cotê d`Azur. And he is under suspicion of having committed several jewel thefts in Nice and Cannes. And he can only prove his innocence by catching the real culprit. But in the beautiful Cotê d`Azur he meets the stunning heiress Frances Stevens who is Grace Kelly, rich, bored, spoiled and enthusiastic and also curious about the reputation of John Robie ("The Cat"), Cary Grant. With gorgeous scenery. One of the most Elegant films, Hitchcock, knew what he was doing. Cary Grant and Gracy Kelly were together, actress and actor, some of the most elegant that ever passed through the cinema. They had natural Elegance. And beautiful! Gracy Kelly's costume was all designed by Edith Head, famous costume designer of the whole movie industry. And she had Gracy Kelly as her muse. Cary Grant, chose his own closet for the movie, because he was very elegant in real life, off screen. For the film Cary Grant found the red polka-dot scarf and the striped sweater in a local store. The scarf worn casually, tied around the neck in the style of a tie. This style was copied by many. The "look", entirely Casual, by Cary Grant. On his feet a CG handmade moccasin for Maxwell's, the pants of a suit. Very elegant. Look at Grace Kelly's "look" on the beach, with cat eye sunglasses, a light yellow swimsuit, and a scarf tied around her head in the same shade. Elegance on the beach. Grace Kelly's evening look is beautiful! She has class and a natural sense of Elegance, she seems to float, when she walks. Cary Grant in a tuxedo, lots of Elegance, natural. Innate Sense. The scene where Grace Kelly meets Cary Grant, in the lobby of the Hotel, she wears a black swimsuit, with a skirt-like beach outlet, a wide-brimmed hat (Flying Num), and a black turban. (One of Grace's signature pieces, made legendary by the future princess). In the picnic scene with the wonderful view of Monte Carlo, Grace Kelly wears a coral dress with white prints on the top (in perfect combination with the gloves) and with a pleated skirt and a coral scarf tied around her neck. Cary Grant with his usual Elegance. The scenes were improvised by the two, who were very much at ease with each other, (Hitchcock, approved). In the fireworks scene, both are in absolute classic elegance. Grace Kelly, is in a pearly white chiffon dress, with a magnificent diamond necklace. Cary Grant in a formal "look", which with all its Elegance, made it look, relaxed and fun. The clothes were a natural extension of himself (THIS IS THE BEST DEFINITION, FOR ELEGANCE). In the final scenes. We have a costume ball, held in a mansion on the Cote d'Azur.All the extras wore costumes in the style of Marie Antoinette's court (which I will talk about in another, article, about Sofia Coppola's film, made about Marie Antoinette). It was the most expensive scene that the stylist Edith Head had ever done. Grace Kelly, is dressed as "a fairy princess (Hitchcock's order). The ball gown, worn by her, with a huge gold mesh skirt, adorned with fabric birds and a gold mask, and on her head a gold wig (remember, all in the Marie Antoinette style). In an action scene, in which Cary Grant, walks on the roof ("The Cat'"), to prove his innocence. He wears black from head to toe, including a polo sweater. As the scene ends, he finishes the "look," with an elegant black coat, just in time for the final scene, on the terrace of his house in the hills, when he agrees to marry Frances (Grace Kelly). Cary Grant said, "I always went to work whistling." Evidently reflected, we saw all his Natural Elegance on the screen. Anyway, this film, shows, Natural Elegance in Cary Grant and Natural and Classical Elegance in Grace Kelly, mixed with Hitchcock's irresistible touch of English humor. And the stunning little City-State Monaco. You will be enchanted by such beauty in everything and everyone throughout the Film!
