Jugendstil Wonders

(Williamsburg only wishes it were this cool.)

Karen Elson channels Klimt's leading lady, Emilie Floge.
Karen Elson?  Or Emilie Floge? 

By far my favorite image at this moment.  What can I say? That I want everything I do and own to exude this kind of cheeky poetic lushness?  Not that I could get away with wearing this delicious velvet Poiret-esque enseble, but it most definitely calls for a re-interpreted style moment.  In front of a glorious mountain of hydrangeas, no less.

Florals upon florals.

These cats are just too cool.

Mountain of hydrangeas and velvet part II.  I'm so itching to do a photo shoot like this.

I guess we just need more hydrangeas in Brooklyn.

And Judith, because Klimt's interpretation of her is so stunning.

(This was one lucky kitty.)  And a fabulous man.
