Jul 27, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

It's not uncommon for discerning art collectors to drop thousands on a new artwork for their walls, but it's not as commonplace for the piece to be by a 12-year-old. Then again, most people would never guess these seemingly Warhol-inspired works to have been painted by a kid.

Annie Leibovitz's Massive Career Consolidated in $2,500 476-Page Book

Jul 25, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

With a career that's lasted over 40 years, everyone knows Annie Leibovitz by now. The iconic artist was the chief photographer for Rolling Stone, the first contributing photographer for Vanity Fair after its revival, and has been behind some of the most famous advertising campaigns. Many may try and copy her, but her portraiture style is instantly recognizable as something inherently her own. With so much work in her catalog, it must have been quite the feat to collect her photos in a SUMO-sized book for Taschen, but she did it and the art world rejoices. [Warning: One of the following pictures is NSFW]

20,000 Days on Earth Investigates Nick Cave's Psyche & Boldly Redefines the Music Documentary Genre

Jul 18, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

There's a scene in 20,000 Days on Earth in which Nick Cave chauffeurs Kylie Minogue around Brighton in a black 1980s Jaguar XJ as she reflects back on having first met him. The front passenger seat is left open for us, the audience, as an invitation into a music documentary that's not quite real. In fact, everything you see has been constructed and the car you're in is more like a dream. Though the ambitious film is artistically pieced together and wrapped in fiction by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard—and co-written by Cave himself—it's actually the most beautifully honest reflection of art's transformative power you may ever see.

Jun 6, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

If there's one surefire way to get the entire JustLuxe editorial team to stop working and engage in conversation, it's to bring up Game of Thrones. We're obsessed and we're not ashamed — which is why we started immediately pooling our funds when we heard about George R.R. Martin's new crowdfunding campaign. Anyone familiar with the books or HBO show knows that the author has a soft spot for wolves, so it's no surprise that he's raising money for The Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary in his home state of New Mexico.

Jun 2, 2014  |   Contributor: Vicki Arkoff  |  1 Comment

Sweet-faced Colin Hanks stars in his toughest role yet in Fargo, the original FX adaptation of the Academy Award-winning feature film. Rather than attempt a remake, writer Noah Hawley reinvents Fargo with an all-new crime story featuring a new case and new characters — all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and “Minnesota nice” that made the film an enduring classic. Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as Lorne Malvo, a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard, played by BAFTA winner Martin Freeman (SherlockThe Hobbit).
