Pre-Raphaelites are In-Fashion

 Thanks to Ni Milo on Facebook for alerting me to this fashion shoot appearing in The Telegraph.  Of course, as was the case with the Cult of Beauty exhibition, popular culture is starting to push the huge Pre-Raphaelite exhibition coming to the Tate this fall.  (AND to Washington D.C. in the spring...I WILL be visiting)

What I love about these images is that the hairstylist really got it right with the Pre-Raphaelite hair.  The kinky wavy curls are so very reminiscent of Jane Morris' own head of hair.

Pre-Raphaelite design has also found it's way into i-phone, Nook, Kindle and i-pad covers. not to mention duvet covers, cocktail platters, pillows, trays and more. or just plain old calendars .
