Andy Warhol’s Liz Taylor portrait could fetch as much as $30 million

Some unidentified private collector is going to make some huge money when his iconic Andy Warhol painting of Elizabeth Taylor will go under the hammer on May 12 in New York. Auction house Phillips de Pury & Company is handling the sale. English-born American actress Elizabeth Taylor, often referred to as Liz Taylor, died of heart failure this Wednesday at the age of 79. Liz Taylor was a two-time winner of the Academy Award for Best Actress, and is considered as one of the greatest screen actresses of Hollywood’s Golden Age. The “Liz #5″ was painted in 1963, and is expected to sell for between $20 million and $30 million. Michael McGinnis, Senior Director and Worldwide Head, Contemporary Art, said…

Liz #5 is a pristine gem. It is Warhol at his very best with a perfect screen, glowing colors, and impeccable provenance. She is classic yet every bit as cutting edge as she was when Warhol painted her nearly 50 years ago.

Liz #5 embodies everything that a major collector of 20th and 21st century art desires and we are thrilled to offer this rare and exciting opportunity to the market.

Liz Taylor was one of Warhol’s most famous inspirations alongside Marilyn Monroe and Jackie Kennedy. In Liz #5, her radiant face emerges from a rich turquoise background, perfectly capturing her luminous skin, striking violet eyes and red lips.

The highest auction price ever paid for a Warhol painting is $71.7 million paid in 2007 for his 1963 painting, Green Car Crash (Green Burning Car I), depicts an overturned car on fire.

10 Best Dressed

Special Edition: Best Dressed of the Year

Edited by Alexandra Kotur

Whether it’s sleek chic or cyberfantasy, silver-screen Hollywood glamour or Holly Woodlawn camp, whether it’s East End edge or East Egg flapper dazzle, from head (artful marcel waves, tumbled-out-of-bed tousle, or candy-floss high-rise) to toe (ballet slippers with dirndls or platforms with ball gowns), the ten individualists whom Vogue celebrates as the Best Dressed of 2010 are gamely rewriting the rules.

The Mode of Almodóvar

Bazaar recasts the beloved Spanish director‘s most
memorable cinematic scenes with some of fashion‘s most famous faces.

Pedro Almodóvar officially reached an iconic
standard so high (by Hollywood value charts) that he’s honored with a Harper’s
Bazaar
pictorial! And not just any! The Mode of Almodovar,
featured in the magazine’s March 2010 issue (yes, the Kate
the Great one) featurs some equally iconic designers recreating
Almodovar’s movie posters.

I never imagined the
Kaiser
in one of Almodovar flics so I’ll keep an open spirit while
trying to get these re-edits under my skin! (the story continues right
after the jump with more images! Click here for the gallery!)

The Mode of Almodovar Gaultier

The minor changes you’re picking on are not going to change one pleat
of the general idea: Almodovar the Great, Kate
the Great (Cindy the Great)
. This is one great issue for Harper’s Bazaar.
Some they nail, some they don’t. Almodovar is a go, for sure! Not to
mention it’s always a pleasure (at least in my calendar) when fashion designers step out into the light and do some honest
modelling! Who’s your favorite? (photos via)

I saw this short film at the 2009 Women of Color Arts & Film (WOCAF) Festival in Atlanta that was presented by Mojisola Sonoiki of Iyalode Productions; and I fell in love with it on the spot. I never get tired of watching it and it never fails to leave me wanting more. The beautiful Ndoema is ferocious and fearless!

Plot Summary for
I’m Not Britney //

Global beauty Ndoema stars in this socially defiant and visually dazzling film boasting sixteen wardrobe changes, eight international leading men, a host of young women spanning five continents and a blistering send-off to Hollywood‘s stereotypical booty-girl syndrome. A masterful blending of art and activism, music video style and spoken word performance, ‘I’m Not Britney’ is a highly stylized visual feast that pushes the boundaries of cinematic language and captures the powerful words of Ndoema’s empowering stance.

Added BONUS: Here is a Sneak peek Trailer of THEGLOBALGIRL.COM – The first Fashion, Entertainment and Lifestyle destination for the global generation. Hear what people across the globe are saying about Ndoema’s powerful message.

Paris Hilton’s USD325,000 Doghouse

By ASHOK SOMAN

In the midst of a continuing global economic downturn and an across-board housing slump, one woman is not giving up the ghost of excess: Paris Hilton. And neither are her dogs.

According to gossip maven Perez Hilton, the six pampered pooches are living it up in a USD325,000 mini-mansion featuring interiors by Faye Resnick and miniature Philippe Starck furniture.

It even comes with a black crystal chandelier. Of course, the 300sqf house comes with climate control and is located in Paris’ own backyard in Beverly Hills. Our investment experts have yet to get back to us on the soundness of Hilton’s real estate venture.

Image credits: Paris Hilton via Twitter

Paris’s pinkified pet playhouse has two floors. Downstairs there is a living room and upstairs there is a bedroom and a closet to stash the many outfits she has purchased for her small pets. Hilton’s dogs, which bear names like Tinkerbell, Marilyn Monroe, Prince Baby Bear, Harajuku, Dolce and Prada, will feel right at home because the mini-mansion, outfitted by interior decorator Faye Resnick was designed to resemble Hilton’s own home in all its pink majesty and includes miniature Philippe Starck furniture, heat, air conditioning and even a black crystal chandelier and black ceiling moldings. At a price of $325,000, as Perez Hilton points out, such extavagance might not sit well with the many people in the U.S. struggling to hold on to their homes. But then again, would we expect anything less of Paris Hilton?
