I’m almost finished Ellis Avery’s The Last Nude, a literary fiction/historical fiction piece that imagines the relationship between soft-cubist/art deco painter Tamara de Lempicka and Rafaela, a model that appeared in several of her paintings, like The Dream (1927):

The subjects in her work are GORGEOUS, VOLUPTUOUS, HEALTHY ladies, and discovering de Lempicka’s other works has me super inspired.  Here’s how to get the look from one of my favorite of de Lempicka’s pieces, The Straw Hat (1930):

1    NARS Lipstick in Heat Wave ($26)
