Having faced allegations of plagiarism after his last show of paintings, Bob Dylan—he of “Blowin’ in the Wind”—confronted the issue head-on for his new one: Revisionist Art: Thirty Works by Bob Dylan, which opens tonight at New York’s Gagosian branch on Madison Avenue, riffs on the theme of appropriation. Like, for example, Playboy Magazine: Sharon Stone (2011-12), above, which borrows elements from the pulp press and the legendary men’s magazine. (Lest you be tempted to call it mere appropriation and not art, recall that it is, at the very least, an improvement on the actual June 1985 cover of Playboy, which featured eighties tabloid sensation Roxanne Pulitzer and a trumpet.) It may be news to Sharon Stone that she’s appearing on the magazine cover (especially since the woman pictured doesn’t appear to be her), but the more pressing question may be, who’s the phantom subscriber? Here’s to you, Mrs. Rosenhorn!
Revisionist Art runs through January 12, 2013 at Gagosian Gallery, Madison Avenue, gagosian.com.
Cameron Diaz is the new brand ambassador for Tag Heuer, as well as the muse for the brand’s new Link Lady collection. “The Link Lady is modern, sexy, and elegant, and I’m equally comfortable wearing it on the red carpet or in my day-to-day life,” says Diaz. [WWD]
Rihanna’s latest ad campaign film for Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans is just as we would expect—über sexy. The pop star shows off a new bra and panty set from the label as she writhes about in bed. [Fashion Etc.]
How much are you willing to shell out for a pair of premium sunglasses? A mere $2,950 is what Tom Ford is hoping. The designer has “the finest quality gold-plated metal and buffalo horn” frames on offer in luxury stores and Tom Ford boutiques starting in April. [Styleite]
Sharon Stone has been announced as the host of this year’s amfAR Inspiration Gala in Brazil. The event will feature tributes to Mario Testino, who will receive the Piaget Award of Inspiration, and Estée Lauder group president John Demsey. [WWD]
“A face is like a work of art. It deserves a great frame.” That’s the trademark tag that West Coast optical brand l.a. Eyeworks has used for the past 30 years under the many famous faces in its iconic campaigns. They started with Go-Go Belinda Carlisle in 1979 and through the years have featured Andy Warhol, Sharon Stone, John Waters, Amy Sedaris, Divine, and RuPaul—a diverse and talented cast of characters who have all had some deeper connection to the brand. “Many of the stars in the campaign are the result of an organic relationship,” insists Gai Gherardi, who co-founded the label with Barbara McReynolds. But their 30th birthday isn’t all nostalgia and glancing backward. Their special birthday box set of limited-edition cleaning cloths, out in September, involves a new creative crew: artists Gary Panter, Catherine Opie, and Barbara Kruger.
Sharon Stone tackles life’s problems the best way she knows how: Botox! But because the Botox in question was for her 8-year-old son (and because a judge in her ongoing custody battle with ex Phil Bronstein has limited her time with the boy due in part to such dubious parenting techniques) we’re guessing she’s going to have to solve this conundrum differently.
Gemma Ward has made her disappearance from the runway worthwhile. The model/aspiring actress has made the switch to award-nominated actress/model. As the time-tested Cindy-Crawford-in-Fair Game paradigm shows, this is not as easy as it looks.
