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!)

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)

Bryan Ferry studied Arts at Newcastle University .He is very interested in pop art and contemporary art, some of his professors were Richard Hamilton and Mark Lancaster, a silkscreen artist for Andy Warhol. Alongside his college classes, he joined an amateur rhythm'n blues rock group called the 'Banshes'. Then, in his second group, 'The Gas Board', he met bassist Graham Simpson, with whom he formed Roxy Music. Comprised of saxophonist Andy MacKay, synthesizer Brian Eno, drummer Paul Thompson and guitarist Phil Manzanera. Roxy Music, offered an elegant and refined pop of which Bryan Ferry was one of the main composers. The group known for its combination of experimentalism and sophistication, the lyricism contained in the lyrics, virtuous instrumental themes and exuberant visual production, had a fascination for fashion, glamour, cinema, for art and the avant-garde, which separated the band from its contemporaries. They did Art Rock, which oscillated between avant-garde rock and elegant pop hooks. The group managed to create a real audience and initiated the Glam movement, significant influence to the punk movement, provided a model for New Wave groups, Duran Duran, direct influence. After their first two albums: "Roxy Music" and "For Your Pleasure", the group enjoyed significant popularity in the UK. Musical disagreements, (as each had different influences and liked different bands), between Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno. Makes Bryan Ferry, let other musicians handle the songwriting. In the US, Roxy Music's best-known hits are "Love is a Drug", "Avalon" and "More Than This". This allows him to embark on a solo career. Opportunity for Bryan Ferry to release several cover albums, songs by the Rolling Stones and the Beatles ("These Foolish Things", "Another Time Another Place").

Released in 2018 the album "Bitter Sweet", made later Ferry being part of the series "Babylon Berlin" (a German period drama based on the books by Volker Kutcher, set in the 1920s), on the album he brings a touch of modernity, a new and exciting way to ragtime, blues and jazz on their famous Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music tracks, it's almost like we're hearing it for the first time. And he had already made a previous album "The Jazz Age", so director Baz Lurhmann, listening to the album, contacted Ferry to record some songs for the movie 'The Great Gatsby', capturing all the glam and sloppiness of the crazy 20s. Record covers, 'all with beautiful models, all had a relationship with Bryan Ferry', and many other models and socielites. Charming man and gentleman. Different from the covers of the time. Bryan Ferry on his debut album, "Roxy Music", posted a pinup photo of Model Kari-Ann Muller, taken by photographer Karl Stoecker. French model Amanda Lear was the muse of Ferry and 'Salvador Dali', 'a "panther" woman holding a panther getting out of a car', on the album "For Your Pleasure", the futuristic, neo-noir and cover album high fashion was photographed again by Stoecker. On the "Stranded" album, Ferry sought out Marilyn Coles, playmate of 'Playboy', photographed by Stoecker. On the album, "Country Life", models Constanze Karoline and Eveline Grunwald, girls he met at a bar, and photographer Eric Bomam invited them to pose on the cover and they agreed, posing in lingerie, references to a sophisticated British magazine, mixed with a true case of a model who got involved with a politician at the time. The cover was censored, in Holland and the United States, later reedited, with another cover for the respective countries. The cover of the "Siren" album is supermodel Jerry Hall crawling across the rocks of a Greek island,a golden crown under her long blond mane, recreating her like the mermaid, luring sailors to their death. Blue filter photography by Graham Hughes, Antony Price painted the body, long pointed nails blue, adorning the ankles with blue fins. Inspired by 'Dorma by Marvel Comics', a blue aristocrat from the underwater world of comics, 'Namor the Submarine'. Her presence in Capa led her to fame, because at the time, she was starting to model. It was during this shoot that Hall fell in love with Ferry. They were engaged in a few months, but Hall would soon leave him for Mick Jagger. On the album "Manifesto", he presented a soiree of male and female mannequins, and two living models hidden in the crowd. In the album "Flesh and Blood", three beautiful women, referenced with a powerful stature. The same goes for the cover of the "Avalon" album, which features Ferry's future wife, socialite model Lucy Halmore 'her her father Patrick Helmore' rich Lloyd's agent and insurer. In a pose descending from Arthurian legend, she faces the sunrise, horned helmet and falcon ready as if she were visiting Arthur's Avalon herself, across a lake on the West Coast of Ireland, on a Helmore family estate. It was also inspired by pre-Raphaelite painting from the Victorian period. Bryan Ferry said of the cover: "A Celtic warrior queen, looking at Avalon. She carries on her wrist a Merlin - the favorite bird of prey of favorite lords." A single release of the 'More Than This' album featured on the cover of the photo a detail of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's painfully melancholy 1872 painting 'Veronica Veronese' - thus maintaining the high romanticism of the Victorian masterpiece of the general artwork of "Avalon ". 'Avalon' is an uncannily beautiful album, an album that immerses the listener in their own enchanted world - about the desire to rest. She was an inspirational muse for several songs by Bryan Ferry, as well as Jerry Hall and Amanda Lear. Roxy Music is a post modern band. Bryan Ferry is one of Rock's greatest stylists. With a lot of class and elegance. He always made it clear that his vision of art and fashion would be part of the music package created by himself. He has incorporated a striking elegance and style to his group's concert and his solo shows, and has also brought that refinement to his album covers. In musical terms, Bryan Ferry's sound is characterized by a creative and personalized dive into the worlds of Glam rock, American Black Music in its strands (Soul, Jazz, Disco Music, Funk) and Pop, with a simply absurd good taste. Lyricism in Lyrics. David Bowie said he was one of his favorite songwriters and described him as one of the best songwriters in British music. All punctuated by his crooner voice, explored with a class and a category reserved for landing singers in the history of pop. Lyrics with Lyricism. It is the proof that pop music can be a sophisticated art form. Besides having been the best dressed Englishman of the late 20th century. All Fashion Magazines say the same. His name is synonymous with Cool. Able to provide us with climatic sounds, involving and in which the listener is taken on delicious journeys through the intricacies of love, passion and the high states of the soul. Dive into Mr Ferry's Work. Good taste for our eyes and ears. (To read + Articles 2020, 2021 click on Article Archives above, Click on the month and scroll down, just read)

Punk a Way of Being Artistic Movement Philosophy Cultural Expression. Music was just one facet of the punk identity. It's more than a sound, it's a whole way of being - a philosophy, an attitude and, crucially, a look. Punk was born as an artistic movement. It was a cultural expression of anguish, emotion and volume. People tired of the day's problems being covered up. They were tired of the commercialism of the world, they wanted to bring their society back to the real, raw human reality through fashion, hairstyles and music. Punk responded to the courageous realism of the politics and socioeconomic cultures of the time. The punk style rose up against capitalism, conformism and "the establishment". Thus punk sound bases were established in New York City, early punk style: Lou Reed, Ramones, Suicide and New York Dolls, Iggy and Stoogs, cleaning the psychedelic, leaving it purer. While Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones filled arenas with elaborate velvet and sequined outfits, the new rebels preferred t-shirts and Levi's. Get out of the Glam scene and 50% of the people were involved in what would come to be known as the punk scene. They dressed in thrift stores, from head to toe. The Dolls wore Levi's jackets that were small. In the mid-1970s the Ramones created a uniform, torn Levi's 505 jeans, worn from use, and black leather jackets. Television, guitarist Richard Hell, was one of the first to wear spiked hair and torn t-shirts held up by pins, and Blondie, Debby Harry, pioneered Levi's and designer goods, all mined from thrift stores. And other groups that frequented the CBGB. They had no money. Joey Ramone's torn Levi's were worn, Dee Dee Ramone's leather jacket, wrists were frayed. They weren't in fashion. At the time it was disgraceful to walk like that. And the Ramones said, that's what we are. When they started calling them punk, the revolution had already spread across the globe. And with the Ramones song, "Sheena is a punk rocker", it was the first time that slang was used as a concept. And it has expanded. Malcolm Maclaren managed the New York Dolls before returning to London, where he and his partner Vivianne Westwood built a boutique called Sex. Inspired by what he saw in New York, he combined the Dolls' exaggerated boldness with the laid-back style of Richard Hell of the Television, to create quintessentially British punk fashion and called its new clients, Sex Pistols, to promote it. Mc Laren, emulated the look and added a special touch to the hair color and styled it. At the same time, other London punks like X-Ray-Spex - led by Poly Styrene - clung to the DIY (Do It Yourself) movement philosophy and began using basic items, jeans and leather jackets as blank canvases to decorate with pins, ink and points. The UK was in a time of open conflict and discomfort. Follow The Clash, The Damned, Generation X, all nonconformists. Everyone dressed up every day expressing themselves as an artist. You could be an Artist who visually expressed yourself from head to toe on stage, or not, you could be a photographer, a graphic artist, a plastic artist, a fan or anything else. A long time later... The impact of punk came after Nirvana's success, coinciding with the rise of Generation X, a new, disaffected generation. Forty years after the beginning of punk, music continues to reverberate, in the indie and alternative movements that punk inspired. In fashion, his influence spread even further. You can see some of the simplicity rooted in Generation X, in the Indie rock uniform of jeans and t-shirts, and the continuing influence of McLaren and Westwood's vision in the completely custom jackets that have become "rigueur" for rap stars. The longest-lasting legacy of punk style cannot be reduced to just clothes and hair. It's more about the idea of being authentic, that if you do your own DIY stuff, and dress your way, get new ideas, think philosophically and have attitude, you can make the world change around you. Punk is a chameleon that changes to suit the needs of anyone who Embraces him. It was based on authenticity. Also on sociopolitical issues. Punk goes beyond any predefined guidelines. It came to represent a range of cultural ideologies and concepts. It emerged as a vein that runs throughout the modern world, from politics to art and culture. It affects people around the world, changing the way we think and feel. There is no single definition, but we have image ideas that are inherently punk. If you claim a statement or stand up against "the establishment", "status quo', are authentic or seek to be, try to understand the essence of everything. So congratulations you're punk. And...in 3 chords...come on ...; One, two, three, go!..."Well New York City really has It all - Oh yeah, oh yeah - Sheena is a punk rocker - Sheena is punk rocker - Sheena is a punk rocker now." 'Ramones'. (To read + Articles 2020, 2021 click Article Archives above, Click month and scroll down, just read)

Brigitte Bardot One of the Most Beautiful Women in the World, Icon. Natural Talent in Movies, Music, Fashion. 'Brigeton' as her father called her, 'Ma Brizzi' as her nanny Dada l'Itallienne called her. Braces, glasses, slight strabismus: as a child, amblyopia, visual impairment in the left eye. She was not yet blonde and her eyes were brown. Brigitte Bardot didn't have what it took to become BB. She grew up on the rue Viollet, in the fifteenth arrondissement of Paris. Her father, Louis Bardot dit Pilou, an industrialist from Usines Bardot at the Origin of Air Liquide, is very fond of feminine beauty, a lot of poetry, publishing a book of Poetry, totally his daughter. Her mother, Anne-Marie Mucel, Toti, loves herself when they look at her, is sad to be a disturbed artist and, as the bourgeois morality of the time dictates, clings to being a housewife. Brigitte grew up in a deeply Catholic family, proud to be French. She grew up in a privileged environment. She and her sister, receive a severe education, evolve into the artistic universe. They walk in front of their father's camera, passionate about cinema, and watch the Tout-Paris parade in the family's apartment. The only mirror in which she liked herself a little was the one in the dance studio. That of the great Russian professor Boris Kniaseff. Exercising, there for several hours a day. Standing out from the rest of the kids. Her legs elongate, her muscles elongate, her chin lifts toward pride. Classical dance transforms clay into a statue that we like to contemplate. Hélène de Lazareff, priestess of ELLE magazine, a great friend of her mother, discovers the young beauty she so badly needs to embody the modern girl. At age 15, she appeared several times on the front page of the magazine. Are there any photographs that are not beautiful by BB? Director Marc Allégret notices this face and auditions for 'The Laurels are Cut'. She meets Marc Allégret's assistant, young Roger Vadim. Her parents initially opposed the relationship, and asked her to wait until she was 18 to marry him. 'My parents offered to have dinner with us. I remember the contrast between this bourgeois and luxurious dinner, with butler, candles and cutlery, and the presence of Vadim in a blouse with a shabby turtleneck and long hair. He looked like a gypsy and I was crazy about it,' says BB. His father consulted a seer, accompanied by Brigitte, the seer predicted that the name Bardot would cross oceans and travel the world, his father was happy, thinking that it would be his industry that would proportionate such fame, but he was wrong, guess who it was? The beautiful blonde continued taking fashion pictures for ELLE. She landed a role in Joan Boyer's 'Le trou normand', opposite Bourvil. Now guided by a manager, Olga Horstig. She starts making a lot of movies; 'Les grande manoeuvres', 'Cette sacrée gamine', La lumière d'en face'. On their honeymoon, with Vadim BB says, they went dancing: 'My hips were rolling, throwing I was hot, I got up, I imitated love to the crazy rhythm of the drums, it was like I was in another body!(. ..) Was good! I had gone crazy! That night Vadim decided to add to his film 'ET Dieu...créa lá femme', a scene in which I danced madly and shamelessly. This sequence would go around the world'... . The following year, for the Cannes Film Festival, she decided to lighten her hair... the golden blonde she was showing on the Croisette attracted all eyes and got funding for the Roger Vadim film. Et Dieu...create there femme. A few months later it made her an international star (First French film to hit the American box office) helped her launch the BB myth. From there she continued filming Jacques Charrier's 'Babette s'en va en guerre'. 'En cas de malheur' by Jean Gabin, 'La Vérité' by Raoul Lévy, 'Le Mépris' by Jean-Luc Godard. 'Une ravissant idiot' by Edouard Molinaro alongside Anthony Perkins. A documentary by Jacques Rozier's Bardot entitled 'Paparazzi'. For, Bardot has been harassed all her life by Paparazzis, describes the unleashing of the press around the star that appears as hunted prey. The duo she forms with Jeanne Moreau in "Viva Maria!" it is a worldwide secession. She became the muse of Serge Gainsbourg, who composed several famous titles for her (Harley Davidson, Bonnie & Clyde, Jé t'aime moi nom plus, Comic Strip). She agreed to lend her traits to "Comic Strip" Marianne Rodgers, heroine of Marvel 'Iron Man' (until then played by an anonymous person). And her bust, carved by Aslan, adorned every town hall in France. Her romance with Serge Gainsbourg was one of the most beautiful love stories. Reading the Biography of "BB", and of Serge Gainsbourg. I read that Serge had a real passion and adoration for Brigitte Bardot, (Jane Birkin, said the same in an interview, was very jealous of BB, but said she was, really beautiful). And Brigitte Bardot idolized him as a Poet, Composer etc. Serge called Brigitte Bardot, asking if I could write a song for her. Brigitte then invites him to her apartment, where he had a piano. At the meeting were silent, the composer begins to hum the words of "Harley Davidson". She is afraid to sing on stage. He asks if she has champagne. She says she always has one in the fridge. They have several glasses of champagne. Serge sees in front of his eyes a confident Brigitte Bardot, who sings the future hit with sensuality. Serge makes his dream come true! The next day he sent her a Box of Dom Pérignon. A story will have started on a background of golden bubbles. The romance will last for three months. Three months of pure happiness. One night, while resting in her arms, she asks Serge to compose the love song, the most beautiful one he could compose in all its power and poetry. In the middle of the night Serge, starts to compose on the piano, turns the night! "Je t'aime moi nom plus" is born! He shows Brigitte in the morning, who doesn't hesitate for a single second to record. As they say goodbye that day, Brigitte reports in her Biography that she cut her own finger and cut Serge's finger and she sealed their commitment, mixing the blood and writing on paper "Je t'aime moi nom plus". And he was amazed. But what was already! But faced with threats from her husband, the millionaire playboy Günther Sachs, Brigitte then asks Serge not to sell her. Recorded many years later by Jane Birkin, replacing BB. A situation that really hurt French icon Brigitte Bardot, saying "I thought I was going to die when I heard the Jane Birkin version. But it was in the order of things, I didn't object to it either. This song (version) fell on me like a stone in my heart". If the moments they spent together were idyllic, the situation for the then young Brigitte Bardot was difficult. Divided between her husband (who cheated on her constantly and walked with an entourage of beautiful Models at his side), and Serge Gainsbourg. So the romance with Serge ends. (But she soon separates from her husband Günther Sachs). Serge Gainsbourg was devastated. Bardot said, "Serge was tormented with the anguish of losing me. Every meeting was a miracle for him. He meant a lot to me, but the situation was untenable, hellish." In reverence for the actress of indisputable sex appeal, a devastated Serge Gainsbourg writes the "wonderful" album "Initials BB", (listen is the sublimation of Artista Gênio). That was later taken up in commercials by Guerlain (BB's favorite perfume). In the same year he wrote the lyrics for "Comment te dire adie" for Françoise Hardy. They remained eternal accomplices. To this day Brigitte Bardot says she hasn't forgotten him, when Serge died in 1991, she says she read a quote he wrote in a magazine "When Bardot left me, it was like someone ripped my heart out with their teeth." Serge Gainsbourg, built a Parisian House, rue de Verneuil, which is a masterpiece, all inspired by Surrealism. This House was dedicated to Brigitte Bardot, with whom he thought of living in this magnificent house. Serge found redemption in the arms of Jane Birkin. BB says "It was a crazy love, a love as we dreamed, a love that will stay in our memories". Even today when we talk about Gainsbourg we still associate Bardot with him... He made Michel Melville's film 'L'Ours Et la Poupée, with Jean Pierre Cassel. "Novices", where he met Annie Girardot, who became a faithful friend. 'Les Pétroleuses' alongside Claudia Cardinale. 'Boulevard Du Rhuncom' by Lino Ventura. 'Don Juan 73' by Roger Vadim. After a guest appearance in Nina Companeez's 1973 'L'histoire trés joyeuse de Colinot trousse-chemise', Brigitte Bardot announces that she is ending her film career. She stopped at age 38, at the height of her glory, saving her skin. She takes refuge in La Madrague, in Saint-Tropez. Dedicating himself exclusively to the defense of animals. She founded the Brigitte Bardot Association; she fights seal hunting, whaling, fur trading... she is the author of several books; her memoirs, published-Initiales BB (1996), Lê Carré by Pluton (1999), Um Cri dans le silence (2003), Porquoi? (2006). BB's Beauty is a reference in the fashion world, where all hunters and model scouts look for and need to find models always in the Brigitte Bardot beauty standard. I will mention examples: Laettita Casta, Gisele Bündchen, Claudia Schiffer etc. Always the BB standard for beauty. You noticed 'Madonna's split front teeth! As for Briggite Bardot's beautiful and staggering walk, the reason is because she had amblyopia, and she could only see with her right eye, the left didn't work. Aided by her haughtiness, acquired at Ballet. She was considered the most beautiful woman in the world. Hence the reference for choosing the Models. Listen to Any Album, by Briggite Bardot, it's a voice like no other. Watch any movie, you will see all her beauty and the beautiful figure in all of them. "She lives like everyone else, and she's not like anyone else," Jean Cocteau said of her.                            (To read + Articles 2020, 2021 Click Article Archives above, Click the month, scroll down, just read)

Blade Runner, Movie, Science Fiction Classic, Timeless 1982 Ridley Scott. In the early 21st century, this is in a dystopian future, in 2019, a large Tirell Corporation, headquartered in two pyramid-shaped Towers. It develops Robots, which are more agile and stronger and much smarter than human beings. They are known as Replicants. They are used as slaves in the colonization and exploration of other planets. But when a group of more evolved robots riot in an off-Earth colony, stealing a spaceship and coming to Earth, this incident makes all Replicants illegal on Earth, under penalty of death. Since then, officers from an elite squad, known as the Blade Runner, have orders to shoot and kill Replicants found on Earth, but such an act is called Retirement or Removal. The fugitives of the rebellion are from the "Nexus 6" stage, Replicants, sophisticated androids, they are virtually identical to humans, but superior in almost everything. Their leader is Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer), the most advanced and intelligent of the group, Zhora (Joanna Cassidy), a trained assassin, Priss (Daryl Hannah), a pleasure model and Leon (Brion James), the impassive. The "Nexus 6" models, although designed without emotions, are advanced to develop them over years, including hate and anger. But, their useful life is only 4 years, because of their implanted memories, they cannot live anymore, because from that point on they are so intelligent that they tend to develop human emotions and feelings, with the audacity to consider themselves Human. And ex-Blade Runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is in charge of hunting them down. The setting is Los Angeles, heavily industrialized, with people from all over the world in the same place, amply crowded, it rains constantly, the skies are always dark with dirt in the air, in the sky flying cars, giant zeppelins with advertisements, absurdly tall buildings of sizes unimaginable, advertising everywhere in 3D and other new technologies, giant billboards with moving faces and speakers, advertising Coca-Cola and other products. Deckard goes to Tyrell headquarters. While waiting, Dr. Tyrell (Joel Turkel) is greeted by the beautiful assistant, Rachel, beautiful and cool, like a porcelain doll, (Sean Young). Dr Tyrrel, appears and doubts Deckard's ability to distinguish Replicants from Humans. So, Rachel, you're going to be the one tested. 100 questions are asked, and she passes, but the machine alerts her that she is a Replicant. There are 20 to 30 questions to detect a normal replicant. Dr. Tyrell implanted his niece's memories in Rachel, and she doesn't know she's a Replicant. Rachel goes to Deckard's apartment to tell him she is not a Replicant, Deckard explains how she was designed. And She becomes his passion. The "Nexus 6" Replicants rebelled and came to Earth to find their Creator, because they want to live longer than 4 years. They are after the Reptilian, Dr. Tyrrel, owner of the Tyrrel Corporation and Creator of all Replicants. Seminal film, inspired by older classics "Metropolis (1926) and "Things to Come" (1936), but with a comprehensive vision of the future, which has influenced science fiction films ever since. Its main legacies are: giant global corporations, environmental decay, overcrowding, technological progress at the top, poverty or slavery at the bottom - and, oddly enough, a film noir vision. Much of the Original comes from the story of Philip K. Dick's book "Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" of the most extraordinary worlds ever created in a film. It's fascinating how a film noir, a genre born in the 1940s, has such a huge impact on the future. Soundtrack by Vangelis. The death scene of Replicant Roy Batty played by Rutger Hauer is one of the most beautiful in the film. The Replicants in their pain and anger, for the growing existential horror of being preprogrammed to die in just a few years, are more in touch with the human condition than humans are. film influenced many science fiction movies, video games, anime and television series. Considered one of the best science fiction movies of all time. Film Noir details are everywhere: Rachel's shoulder pads, the striped shadows cast by the shutters, the atmosphere of defeat, dreary apartments, jazz in the background, reflected neon rain (glimmering in the window or in the eyes). This film remains one of the most visually stunning in cinema history! I chose the best pictures of the Scenes, so you can have an idea of ​​the visual beauty of this Masterpiece of the Seventh Art.

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.

At age 14, whose rock heroes included Carl Perkins, Little Richard and Buddy Holly, he bought his first guitar and taught himself a few chords. Martin Scorcese made a documentary about Harryson's life "Living in the Material World" (2011). Gradually, he found his way to enlightenment through yoga, meditation, gardening, Indian music, and auto racing. Doing so meant letting go of the past and telling yourself that the Beatles had been just a speck. For all that, the handsome George Harrison is my favorite Beatle or "non-Beatle".

Rolling Stones, Hypnotic Band, Reinventing Themselves Always Creative Musicians. Enduring Blues Band and Rock'n'roll. Before they fell in love with the blues, before they started writing songs, from forming one of the most famous bands in the world, Jagger and Richards, have known each other since they were small. “I can't remember when I didn't know him,” Mick told Rolling Stone magazine in 1995. “We lived a street away; his mother knew my mother and we went to elementary school together from 7 to 11. We used to play together and we weren't the closest friends, but we were friends". The future rock stars grew up in the city of Dartford, in the far east of Greater London. When Richards' family moved to a new neighborhood, Jagger and Richards saw each other less. They separately developed a love of rock'n'roll in their teens, with Jagger even forming a band. "I used to do shows on Saturday night with all these different little groups. If I could get a show, I would. I used to do crazy things - you know, I used to go and play shows and get on my knees and roll on the floor - when I was 15, 16 years old," he said. Richards was aware of Jagger's performances at the time, although the two ran in separate circles, with the scholar Jagger studying at the London School of Economics and the indifferent Richards studying at the Sidcup Art School, where he began playing the guitar. Their paths would cross again on the morning of October 17, 1961, on platform two at Dartford Rail Station. Jagger, then 18, and Richards, 17, were going to school. "What happened to me and Mick back then, was that he carried two albums - Chuck Berry's 'Rockin 'at the Hops' and 'The Best of Muddy Waters.' I had only heard of Muddy up to that point," Richards said. Jagger with the records and Richards with his guitar, started a conversation about rock and blues on the train. Then Richards learned that Jagger had ordered two different albums from Chicago Chess Records not available in England. Excited and wanting to hear the LPs, Richards invited Jagger for tea that afternoon. After the audition session, the budding singer invited the amateur guitarist to join his band, 'Little Boy Blue and The Blue Boys' which played songs from Eddie Cochrane, Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry. The following year, they would find a kindred spirit in Brian Jones, and the three of them formed a new band, named after one of the songs on the two discs Jagger carried at the train station. With "Rolling 'Stone" by Muddy Waters as their inspiration, the new group became ROLLING STONES. In 2015, a plaque was unveiled at Dartford Station, where Richards and Jagger had the fateful contact. "For the thousands of passengers to realize what a great role the station has played in bringing the Rolling Stones together," said Jeremy Kits, leader of the Dartford Borough City Council. Mick Jagger, Fascinating and charismatic band leader and all the stylish Musics Band. About the proliferation and vast work of the Band, it needs no introduction. And arguably all the songs are exquisite. That explains a lot about how famous and fantastic this band is. "You can't always get what you want / But if you try sometimes, you just might find / You get what you need"!... (You Can't Always Get What You Want - Keith Richards / Mick Jagger) ..." Wild horses / Couldn't drag me away. / Wild horses, / We'll ride them someday." (Wild Horses - Keith Richads / Mick Jagger).

She was the first woman to sunbathe on the beach, cutting her Boyfriend's sweater (Love of her life, who helped open the first store) and creating a kind of swimsuit, the first woman to show off her tanned legs. She used every opportunity she had! She made her own simplified hat, while those of noble women were excessive. She would go to the racecourse with Boyfriend Lord Arthur Capel (Boy), with his hat, simplified, with sober dresses and with ties and jackets that she took from her companion's closet.

So she opened the first hat shop with Boyfriend's help. They went to a Luxury Hotel, she and her boyfriend, who were already the couple at the time. At the Hotel, she reformed her boyfriend's knit, transforming it into a comfortable dress. She went out into the street, and everyone asked where she had bought it. And she would answer: "If you want to sell one of these for yourself" At that point in 1913, she became a Stylist. She opened a store, an instant success. She created Sportswear.
