My good friend Chloe Hayward is about to take the world by storm, not only for her bombshell beauty but for being an actress superstar. It's not often I write about people I know and love, so I thought this would be a good time to start. These photos are taken from her recent shoot for Italian Vogue, with one of my photography icons: Ellen Von Unwerth. It is safe to say I feel very proud.

Gerhard Richter (born in february 1932) is a German visual artist who has simultaneously produced abstract and photorealist painted works as well as photographs and glass pieces, following in the example of Picasso in undermining the concept of the artist's obligation to maintain a single cohesive style. It is his 'overpaintings' in particular that I am most drawn to, which you can see below. I love how these works tell a story and create a texture, using, what is in essence, a very simple concept.
