Masters of Style
If the dental beautification of a Mayan princess doesn't appeal to you (next post down or CLICK) there's always the Italian fashion scene to fall back on. To mark the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification, Somerset House in London presents Masters of Style: Celebrating the Stories behind Italian Fashion, which features six of Italy’s top fashion houses: Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Ferragamo, Gucci, Missoni and Prada (title link). Their archives hold a wealth of glamour photos, such as the one above from Gucci with a girl in charge of a luxury speedboat. Girl power! Admission is less than the RA's Eyewitness show (CLICK) at £6 adults and £5 silver surfers, and this promises to be much more interesting. The show runs from 1 July to 14 August.
