After the Party by Jeremy Kost
Calling all my folks in NYC — be sure to pop by and support my friend Jeremy Kost's event TONIGHT at The Dactyl Foundation. I love Jeremy. I really do. He's soo hot alright but yeah, I'm a super big fan of his work and it was an honor to have my polaroid taken when I went there two weeks ago.
From his press release: set to open March 3rd, Dactyl Foundation presents "After the Party,"
an exhibition featuring the art and photography of Jeremy Kost. The
show is curated by Tim Goossens of P.S. 1. Known on the New York
circuit as “the Polaroid artist,” Kost creates art with his tried and
true Polaroid camera. His Polaroids are about power and desire; whether
it is obtained or not, the works presented lend to the notions of
instant gratification, restraint and the overall fulfillment of
The results of the photo sessions take the form of one-of-a-kind
Polaroid grids and collages. The Polaroid images allow for instant
gratification thanks to their quick development, but at the same time
the observer is left with a certain craving. Certain of the artist’s
feelings, they are perfectly conveyed in the essence of the Polaroids:
he is at once self-involved and far-removed. The offhand
whirr-whirr-whirr of Polaroids – push, click, eject; push, click, eject
- ideally suits them to be parts of greater photographic wholes:
rectangular tessellations in many-eyed mosaics.

Sometimes it's nice to let go and let your wild side take control. HAAAAAAAAA.

I'm SO happy meeting COACD's Douglas Perrett. As you know, COACD aka Confessions of a Casting Director is one of the very few blogs I religiously follow over the past few years. Douglas has great eye when it comes to some of the world's freshest faces and future fashion heavyweights aplenty have appeared on his blog before their stars shine bright, no wonder industry insiders, models and modelizers keep track of his website. I honestly thought April Fools came early when he included the non-model me on his top faces of 2008 — I mean COME ON!!!! — but yes, I'm super honored with the very kind gesture on his part.

V Man Party
I laughed so hard when I saw this photo a few hours ago at the gorgeous V Man website. Why? Well, the first thing that came to my mind was good ol’ fashion TOKENISM. Chanel Iman is dat chu? Jourdan Dunn is dat chu? Just kidding.
