Every year I look forward to seeing the outfits from the Met Gala, this years theme was Heavenly Bodies. It was awesome to see The Met's Heavenly Bodies exhibition, I'd watched the new McQueen doc on the flight over, seeing one of his creations for Givenchy, as well as one of his own, was insane!!! (McQueen's are the first and last photos).
Normally you see photos of museums that are the subject of the photo and the art in a deserted space. The truth is, most of the time, the scene actually looks like this. So here’s a #fbf celebration of our fellow museum-goers. Art in themselves. #paris#lorangerie#art#museums#museedelorangerie
Yes, they are #beautiful but they scratch! Visitors are often enamored with the #mysterious#cats that have adopted our Pocket Park as their hangout spot. But heed our warning: they are FERAL! They will graciously accept food and your admiration but they seem to not like being touched. If you love cats like we do and want to spend time with them, we suggest visiting our good friends across the street at @thecatcafesandiego ! There are many adorable kitties who would love to play! There are even some you could adopt!
