Maudy Alferink: The Canvas in Depth

Maudy Alferink: The Canvas in Depth

Maudy Alferink has been painting ever since she can remember. While painting and drawing is her passion, she also developed incredible skills in trend forecasting and and costume design.

While her work is beautiful to say the least, Alferink doesn’t focus on beauty as much as she focus on what is interesting and appealing to the human eye. Her work is a remarkable refection of that philosophy, with deep rooted stories and value engraved in each mark.

OLIVIER ROUSTEING POSES WITH JENNIFER LOPEZ FOR PAPER, EXPLAINS WHY FASHION NEEDS CELEBRITIES

Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing joins Jennifer Lopez for one of Paper magazine’s two cover shoots for its September 2015 issue. The designer is photographed by Nicolas Moore and styled by Rob and Mariel. Discussing celebrities and their involvement in the fashion industry, Rousteing is an advocate, sharing, “Yeah, because celebrities are so inspiring. It doesn’t matter about the money or where you live or where you come from. I think celebrities have something to say to the world, and they have a communication that is so inspiring to the new generation. And communication is what’s most important today. I think celebrities help fashion survive.”

”If you were to close your eyes and think “luxury,” you might imagine 29-year-old designer Olivier Rousteing being manhandled by superstar stunner Jennifer Lopez. We’re pleased to say that, with this story, we have made that vision a reality. Rousteing is four years into his tenure as creative director of Balmain, one of the most talked- and tweeted-about luxury brands in the world; he’s also one of the biggest social media stars of his native France. Lopez, sexier than ever at 46 years of age, is busy preparing for her 2016 residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas and killing it on every red carpet she crosses. At their PAPER shoot in the Hamptons, Lopez appeared in a fringed Balmain gown and said, “Fringe benefits!” Those in attendance swooned collectively, Rousteing included. Later, we spoke with the two of them about the intersections of fashion, luxury, race, feminism, pop culture… and nude-male Instas, of course.’‘ Read more on PaperMag.com.
