Holiday time means I can get lost in the internet for a while and follow whichever celebrity links I like.
Moving along, I was delighted to see Kanye West has really pushed the theme of ancient Egypt in his recent fashion choices. He has been captured wearing a gigantic gold chain pendent of the God Horus. Link to image. I think even Flavor Flav would be impressed with that. Whilst on the topic of Flavor Flav, it’s hard not to a post a link to this picture, because it’s just so outrageous.
If you reside in Melbourne, you can enjoy Ancient Egyptian fever yourself when Tutankhamun comes to town in April, 2011. In the spirit of Kanye, I will be preparing a suitably large gold necklace for the event. Perhaps in the form of Sekhmet or Tawaret. On the subject of exhibitions, I think the Ballet Russes at the NGA is one to try and attend. Early 20th Century Russian & French designed costume.
In closing this snippet, I will mention that my celebrity internet research began at the Flavorwire website. I visit it from time to time and find it a good resource for choosing books to read. Happy New Year.
