Will Cotton.

He bakes pastel sweets and candy landscapes filled with gingerbread houses

and chocolate rivers, then transforms them into paintings.

His paintings are not like any fantasy land I’ve ever seen before…

I know I dreamed about candy filled rivers and pink cloud landscapes, thanks to the boardgame Candyland.

Encountering Cotton’s work has brought back all of those memories and then some.

Will Cotton took his art to a new level earlier this month when he transformed the Partners & Spade Gallery in NYC into an actual bakery, filled with his freshly baked tarts, pies, cakes and macaroons.

Guests were invited to purchase his treats at normal bakery fairs.  Gosh I wish I had made it there to savor the baked goods and the pastel dream paintings.

For now…browsing his website will do.  Some of these look like photographs of a real life candy land.  How fun would it be to have a Will Cotton portrait done?

When I first saw this editorial in Nylon, I was beside myself.

Who’d a thought I could actually have the same hair that I envied on my My Little Ponies growing up.  And then with Lady Gaga rocking it and singing about Lavender Blondes…

Now I’m sort of obsessed and wondering how I can turn my dark locks into a Unicorn worthy mop.

Thanks to CatParty I’m officially obsessed with this new Eva Green flick, Cracks

.  I can’t even look at the trailer for too long before I want to run out and find outfits to match hers in my closet.  I LOVED her look in The Dreamers and was very sad when the same sultry, natural side of her was not represented in Quantum of Solace.

the film is directed by Jordan Scott.

These two looks KILL me.
