What contemporary women do you think have the pre-raphaelite 'look?'
Oh, this is an interesting question… First of all, definitely Florence Welch! Hm… also definitely
Q'orianka Kilcher. Some others are Eleanor Tomlinson, from what I’ve seen in Poldark, The Pre-Raphaelite look with her abundant curls! Lily Cole, Claudia Devlin and Imaam Hammam at times/in certain shoots. Oh, also Sophie Turner and Drew Barrymore, Drew’s face reminds me of Rossetti’s paintings so much… (just like Q'orianka’s) Also Chloe Grace Moretz comes to mind, because of her lips I suppose… Her lips are the only lips Rossetti ever and always painted haha

This week I have been utterly obsessed with having chill time in my condo watching movies - like all of the times … anyhow I sourced Netflix for this beauty of an indie film Sky.
Diane Kruger shone in this coming-of-age story and in her journey there was a cast of characters that included many Indigenous actors (including Q’orianka Kilcher) and featured Indigenous world views in the most unexpected way.
Also, you get to see Lena Dunham playing the role of southern(ish) white trash complete with a missing tooth. I mean, that alone is worth the price of admission lol.
So if you’re looking for a movie and you’re in a quiet, contemplative mood - this one’s for you and it’s on Netflix (Canada). Bonus.
