Frida & Diego

As we are still in the month of February, and we are highlighting "Love," we wanted to touch base on the Love Story of Frida & Diego.  Frieda Kahlo & Diego Rivera, two of Mexico's most famous artists, are also a married couple.  Rivera is thought of as Mexico's most famous muralist, and Kahlo is more recognized for her intimate paintings and self-portraits.
For the first time, in a large scale exhibition, their work will be on display at the High Museum in Atlanta, through May 12th.  If you are ever there on a Saturday, the High is also screening the films Que Viva Mexico and Frida in the Hill Auditorium.

How are you recovering from the Oscars?  
This shot was taken of Faye Dunaway in 1977, the day after the ceremony, enjoying her Oscar and breakfast at the Beverly Hill's Hotel.
The Beverly Hills Hotel, also known as the "Pink Palace", is the place for Hollywood action.  More stars and directors have laid their heads here than any other place in LA.  One fun fact, Elizabeth Taylor honeymooned at the "Pink Palace" after six of her eight marriages.

Here are some of our favorite shots from last night-

Crown Jewels

Our next Iconic Sketch is the British Monarch's Crown Jewels, worn during state functions.  Out of all the beautiful pieces, the Imperial State Crown is the most famous and priceless, set with over 3,000 gems.  
The Crown Jewels are stored in the Jewel House at the Tower of London and guarded by Yeoman Warders, also known as Beefeaters.  Only one man has been able to steal the Crown Jewels, Thomas Blood, in 1671.  Fortunately, he was caught before he made it to the front gate!
