Our beloved Brit Rankin gives us yet another a bloody good reason to pull out the sleek suit, wax our hair into a pompadour, and toast to the flamboyance of single mums, the gracefulness of our English lovers, and the baffling art that surrounds us all. The reason? A fab event dripping with drippy babes.
The release of the latest edition of Leica’s S-Magazine “The Rankin Issue,” guest edited by the host and star of the night himself, will be celebrated with an exhibition at the RANKIN gallery on Melrose Avenue. Enter a Dante's Inferno of sorts, where sticky-wet babes are photographed and hung for all to regard and applaud.
“I’d always thought it would be interesting to do a hair book – where you take hairdressers and you give them the opportunity to do anything they want,” explains Rankin on his choices and challenges. “It was a chance to collaborate with the people I really admire, but also people I knew had hidden talents that maybe hadn’t come out yet.”
If you’re in town, go be fab; if not, wait for the ace pics we’ll post on Flaunt.com of the attendants.
