Jay Z, the rap star, the husband of Beyonce and daddy to Blue, is not just a rapper, entrepreneur, record producer, and rich man—he’s also an art collector. Recently he decided to do his own form of performance art called “Picasso Baby” at the Pace Gallery in New York. I first read an article about it in Vulture by Jerry Saltz and then found the video a couple weeks later. The critic, Jerry Saltz, loved it. “Maybe I was smitten by fame. I stayed for just about the whole six hours, and all I can say is that I don’t think I saw one instance where Jay-Z was not totally there, in the moment, working the energy.”

I was impressed by his summary: “I went in doubting. I left elated.”

That has nothing to do with what I have on except the idea of energy, giving and getting. The article said Jay Z would not put up with schmaltz—he wanted genuine energy and he fed off it for his performance. I really liked that idea. When I see stuff I want to blog, I am looking for that authentic energy… and joy in creation. Ariadna Garrigus continues to produce joyful work, it seems to me. This nightclub dress—translucent with shimmering silver stitchwork—is a case in point. She pushes her expertise with mesh by making this body-conscious see-through piece with matching mesh panties.

This sexy posing chair is Rogan Diesel’s contribution to FaMESHed. My skin is Tricky Boucher’s contribution to The Boutique. My jewelry is Maxi Gossamer’s contribution to Limited Bazaar and United Fashion Project. And my eyes are gorgeous peepers that Isabelle Requiem has for sale at TDR Fushion. My hair is Catwa Clip’s newest, a sexy up and down ‘do with wisps around the decolletage and face and a great HUD for changing hair color.
