I'd be thrilled if anyone else would post pictures of photogenic/accomplished people. I'm busy throwing out posts of people I have on my hard-drive and am in the process of archiving at the dailies.

I have so many pictures of extraordinarily normal/normally extraordinarily people on my hd it's a wonder the comp doesn't melt from the collective hotness and win.

Since the 4th, writers for [livejournal.com profile] ibarw have been writing about race and ethnicity. Since the 9th, the Carnival of Women of Color and Beauty has gone live. Behind the cut, I've placed pictures and links to pieces drawn from these sources, as well as otherwhere.

From lotusgreen who blogs at japonisme from where I learned that Ana Sui is in love with 19th Century art.



lotusgreen also compares and contrasts collections that have been said to be inspired by Klimt in "Klimt is cool".
