The ladies’ room at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has a storied reputation—the one place where it’s entirely acceptable, even encouraged, to take a toilet-side snap. Year after year, celebrities gather for an impromptu photo shoot and earn countless Instagram likes. It reads like a master class in bathroom selfie style, with plenty of tips worth rolling into your repertoire. If you’re feeling more like a Cara Delevingne, why not choose a studded one-shoulder Versus Versace dress and several swipes of e.l.f. eyeliner to get that same smoky eye?

Step forward Katerina Jebb, the Paris-based, British artist known for her unorthodox approach to image creation who has been creating captivating fake beauty advertisement films since early 2009, for her imaginary TV Channel, Lucid TV. Featuring well-known female faces, the subversive series of shorts, entitled Simulacrum and Hyperbole, employ powerful voiceovers to promote mythical, wonder products – the works, powerful, witty comments on consumerism and the beauty industry.

Inspired by the series, Comme des Garçons invited her to create a film in the same vein, but this time focused on a purchasable product.

Dual Analysis: Beetle Juice – Chris’ Thoughts

Attesting that upbeat and silly often go hand in hand, Beetle Juice (1988) stands as one of director Tim Burton’s most cheerfully insane projects.

Of course they were sold out for the rest of the weekend! Seeing as Burton was already on my mind, I decided to put on one of the best movies of all time: Beetlejuice.

I never get tired of this flick and find something new every time I watch it. This time I noticed Catherine O'Hara aka Delia Deetz's costumes were pretty damn spectacular, which they kind of have to be to get the character's strong personality across. AMAZING glove turban..such drama! I'd rock the hell out of this shirt if I had it...betting it's a CDG creation. Look- drop crotch pants!
