Inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s Eau de Voilette and starring Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman, this short art film is an advertisement for a ficitional perfume and sure to be beautiful and interesting. If that doesn’t already get you thinking, the film is directed by Roman Polanski and was conceived by Francesco Vezzoli. I can’t wait for the online screening on February 6th on Dazed Digital.
Head over to Dazed now for the trailer, and then mark your calendar for the 6th!

Cristina is from Ft. Myers Beach, Florida, and she is one of the star item reviewers on our website, under the name beachcat! Cristina is a total Free People girl- she spends lots of time outside on the beach, boating and being with friends!
We did a little Q&A session with Cristina, and we found out some quite fun stuff! What do you do for a living?
I own a charter and tour boat company with my husband, Good Time Charters! We do marine life kayak adventures, shelling cruises, dolphin wildlife cruises, fishing charters, and more! I also enjoy waiting tables part time. What draws you to the Free People aesthetic?
I like the the unique prints, the embroidery, and the small details of the clothing! What is your favorite article of Free People clothing?
I have so many! My favorites so far include the Yuca and Mayan sun dresses, and the Watercolor Stitches dress. I love dresses! Do you have any pets?
I have three cats- 6, 9, and 12 yrs old. Two were abandoned by their previous owners and needed a new home- the other was dropped off at my vet’s office as a kitten.
I also have an Australian Blue-tongued skink that needed a home! What inspires you?
Sounds of tree leaves rustling in the wind. Music. Warmth from the sun. Meeting good people. What do you like to do in your spare time?
I relax and day dream about my next vacation! I also enjoy boating with my husband and spending time with friends. What do you like best about where you live?
It is a small island, I feel safe here, I can walk a couple minutes from my front door and go for a swim in the Gulf of Mexico. The upcoming Valentine’s Day in mind, what would be your perfect date?
Being a tour guide and a waitress, I am always catering to someone else. While I love taking care of others, I would enjoy letting someone take care of me for a change! I would love a catered dinner on the beach with my husband, where we can talk and laugh without worry!
Thank you so much for sharing all this with us Cristina! It’s been a pleasure! Plus, now I know what a skink is!
And of course, thank you so much for all your feedback and reviews! ;) We have appreciated them time and time again!

These incredible works of art are real, and so so tiny! Willard Wigan of the UK carves grains of rice or sugar into his miniature-sized sculptures, and then uses a hair from the back of a housefly to paint them! When they are on display in a gallery, each of his works has a microscope so you can see them – but when Willard works on them, he does so with the naked eye! I can’t even imagine, since most of his work is on the head of a pin or the eye of needle! I found a really cool video interview with him on Metacafe that you should have a look at; I posted it below!

I can’t imagine how much time it must take Stephanie Metz to feltwool into these amazing sculptures! The teddy bear skull at the bottom is part of an interesting set she did called Teddy Bear Natural History, which seriously looks like a museum exhibit!
