on Beauty


Rich men's houses are seldom beautiful, rarely comfortable, and never original. It is a constant source of surprise to people of moderate means to observe how little a big fortune contributes to Beauty. ~MA

CAMP, too far? The MET GALA 2019

how can I resist opening the pages of little augury to bring my favorite CAMP looks from the Met's pink carpet?
many looks just seemed a bit too far, lost was the idea of style—

can CAMP be too tacky? I think yes, is the answer.

Subtly is my preferred CAMP, tongue in cheek...

Curator Andrew Bolton says why "camp is impossible to define."
just so...
