From the Producers of Project Runway on Lifetime Television.
Being on the show was so much fun but a lot of hard work. As a contestant we had so many challenges to over come. When the Producers asked me what type of animal I was afraid of and I said snakes, well of course they put a snake in my sewing basket. Now that’s just wrong, but it made for a great show and was so funny.
The dress I designed was a gorgeous black & white Piyet asymmetrical cocktail dress, but I used too much of the sample stripe Piyet fabric and was voted off first! Darn it! Can’t wait for a rematch. Catch the re-runs on Life Time Television or on the 24 Hour Catwalk Youtube channel.

And apparently, there’s a new emphasis on the word “art.” Independent curator Rita de Alencar Pinto, who has devoted the past three years to incorporating the practice of high-end manicures into the art world, has now created an atelier for nail art on Chrystie Street. As part of Vanity Projects, which has hosted pop-up nail painting events at MoMA PS1, the Brooklyn Museum, and NADA since 2010, nail art now has a permanent home.
Like any museum or art gallery, the atelier hosts a series of rotating exhibitions of contemporary video art, which is projected on the salon’s walls. Visitors receive a pair of wireless headphones to listen to audio commentary about the works — while getting manicures, obviously. The current exhibit entitled “Girls, Girls, Girls” features pieces by 10 female video artists. The salon also hosts a nail artists in-residence program, which hosts the industry’s greatest talents in two-week installments.
As far as the actual nail art goes, the salon specializes in art history-inspired manicures,
featuring works by de Chirico, Magritte, Dali, Warhol, and Picasso, among others. Manicures and pedicures at this atelier start at $50, but we’re thinking the one-hour art education session you’re getting with the service is pretty much priceless. (Blouin Art Info)

DALLAS BUYER CLUB
Jared Leto, long of hair and full of beard, is sitting in the lobby of The Bowery Hotel in Lower Manhattan in a chair so ornate it could be more accurately described as a throne. Tapestried cushions rest atop elaborately carved mahogany that pirouettes every which way, culminating in two lions’ heads, one on the end of each of the arms upon which his delicate hands currently rest. He surveys the dimly lit room: low-slung, velvet-covered sofas in rich burgundies and emeralds, assorted oriental rugs, low wood-beamed ceiling, leather-paneled walls, logs crackling in a massive stone fireplace, and, right in front of him, Deepak Chopra.
“You see that?” the 42-year-old says in a hushed whisper. “Deepak Chopra!” His excitement at the presence of the holistic guru is as visible on his face as it is audible in his voice. “Hold on, this is hilarious. I gotta tell my buddy.” He fires off a quick text. In this hotel—a place where celebrities seem to love to be interviewed almost as much as they love to sleep—Leto seems to be the only one focused on Chopra; everybody else is more interested in him.
12 YEARS A SLAVE

These are the 20-year-old pop star’s first tattoos on her feet, but she has lots of others: a peace sign, an equal sign, a heart and a cross (all on her fingers); the words love inside her right ear and just breathe over her rib cage; a Leonardo da Vinci sketch on her right forearm, and above it, the Roman numerals VIIXCI, for 7/91, the month and year her parents first met. And on the inside of her left forearm, the words so THAT HIS PLACE SHALL NEVER BE WITH THOSE COLD AND TIMID SOULS WHO NEITHER KNOW VICTORY NOR DEFEAT. “It’s from a Teddy Roosevelt speech,” she says. “It’s about how people judge who wins and who loses, but they’re not the ones in there fighting.” In other words, “It’s about critics.”
Four days earlier, Miley performed at the VMAs. Maybe you heard about it. A lot of people got mad. Miley did things with a foam finger that made the inventor of the foam finger accuse her of having “degraded” an “icon.” Most people thought it was Miley’s fault, but Miley didn’t care. That’s what the Teddy Roosevelt quote is about. Haters gonna hate.

Zink magazine featured the Imani Zombie jacket for the Video edition of the Sept Issue. Ty-ron Mayes, creative director and stylist for the shoot describes the shoot as a tribute to punk and The Metropolitan Museum Of Arts Exhibition. The shoot was named Paranormal Punk after the trio noticed what appeared to be a reflection of a ghost or skull in the reflective mirror on set of the shoot. The model was asked to do Zombie like movements to create the magical display she portrays in the video. Photography & Video Gail Hadani, make up artist Paul Innis, Direction Ty-Ron
Excitement is in the air as an unusual personality gears up to become the Hollywood’s next action villain. Zombie Boy is just dying to beat you Keanu! as to appear in Keanu Reeve’s 47 Ronin. My friend Rick Genest AKA Zombie Boy is set to appear as one of the antagonist in the new film 47 Ronin
! And with his frightening tattooed exterior, The Prince of Ink is set to leave and indelible stain and some bruises in Hollywood as it is rumored that he may fight Reeves to the death. In a sneak preview… Z.B. is seen crawling through the rafters as he emerges from the shadows…. what happens next…. well we will all just have to wait and see.
Although 47 Ronin has had a lot of delays and has been plagued with constant revisions and ever-changing release dates, Ronin is now scheduled for a Christmas Day release stateside. Here’s a synopsis. The troupe of banished samurai long to restore their honor and find vengeance against the treacherous Lord Kira (played by Asano, who is in theaters now as Hogun in Thor) who was responsible for the death of their master. Kai is the uneasy compatriot in their company and his standing will be questioned even more as he falls in love with Mika (Shibasaki), daughter of the fallen master. The film presents a quest where the Ronin (the term for Samurai with no master) face trials that test their mettle and their loyalty to one another. It stars Keanu Reeves as well as several famous Japanese actor (like Hiroyuki Sanada for example!) in an 18th century Samurai tale of revenge.
It is a pleasure to witness a young talent such as Zombie Boy grow into a sought after actor. If the 4 newly released movie posters are an indication that Zombie is hot… well, just look for yourself. If a picture is worth a thousand words… then what is a poster worth? Check out his solo poster. Entitled “Outcast”, “Warrior”, “Freak” and “Witch”… can you guess which one he is?

For those of you who are not familiar with Zombie Boy… before he transformed himself into living art emblazed with tattoos and disturbing morbid imagery, Zombie Boy was born Rick Genest of La Salle, Quebec and grew up in Chateauguay. “Rico” first appeared on the world platform in the Lady Gaga’s video, Born This Way. No, that was not make-up in the video… at least not on Rico. Over 80 percent of his body is covered in tattoos, including his face. Rick’s tattoos are what he calls, his “project”.
