Lately Ive been watching documentaries of Ancient ALiens and it got me thinking what if we were descended from Ancient alien civilizations? What if aliens exist in our midst? So much possibility as infinite as the stars.
Another interesting topic: according to my friend Robi, he read somewhere that Nostradamus predicted that mankind will start having close encounters of the fourth kind as we head to 2012. Scary. Whether that will happen or not, there is still that looming fear that 2012 is the year when the earth will end.
All these theories and all these possibilities make interesting read.

One thing that is beautiful to ponder: we are made of the same basic elements that make up the entire universe. In a way, I see stars as my brothers and universe my home:)

About the look:
Summer is here in all its annoying heat and humidity. It's inescapable. At least in fashion there is a means of escape...a trip...a getaway. From beaches to Morocco, the color palette of choice is white, porcelain cerulean blues and brick reds:)

My makeup is a hybridization of tribal ethnic face paint (an ode to the history of man), moroccan geometric patterns found in tiles, and abstract rendition of myself as a being madeup of elements similar to that found in stars.

I see primeval. I see modernism. I see the future.

Andre I'm Loving This!!!!!!! I'll start with by saying i love the straight hair with the sleekness of your white blazer ( i myself am on the hunt for a white blazer) and then by teaming that fabulous colour of blue makes a striking yet subtle statement!! Loving the creativity of wearing the jumpsuit as trousers which btw have an amazing print and colour to them. Overall Andre this look is incredibly refreshing and forever inspiring!!

it's delicious, massive decoration, white in color and shape of the white clothes are telling me is really what you do not just walk down the street, do not just walk to work or meditate, but clean and bright, that your soul on the brink of all earthly and heavenly, and are you talking about a new, secret. I am even more like your description, than how you're dressed, with love!
Andre Judd
