The Cult of Beauty exhibit is coming to the United States...San Francisco to be specific...and in celebration, the December issue of Vogue on newsstands tomorrow did a photo spread of the even-more-stunning-every time I see her Saoirse Ronan, in Pre-Raphaelite style.
The caption on the above image reads "The actress, in the flame colored locks that recurred throughout Pre-Raphaelite paintings, makes a compelling case for reviving neoclassical style."
The above is my favorite image of the bunch, but supposedly it's a ten page spread, so I am eager to see if there is more we haven't seen yet.
The above image, clearly inspired by Isabella, or the Pot of Basil, has a caption that reads "In response to industrialization, mid-nineteenth century artists in Britain ushered in an era of handcrafts and bohemian beauty."
If you're reading this blog, I should hope you recognize the inspiration for the above image. Hint: It rhymes with Mophelia...
"Antithetical to the highly embellished and corseted mood of the period, many Pre-Raphaelites adopted gently flowing frocks evocative of the Middle Ages."
Stunning. Just stunning. Mark my words: Saorise Ronan is the younger generation's Cate Blanchett.
