Gr8at: Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams Exhibition

I don’t normally reference fashion (save perhaps for Fashion and Art at The Chocolate Show and Film Quizzes: Stylish and Iconic Female Outfits) but I had to share these photos from The Christian Dior Exhibition at the V&A. Are you a big fan of Dior? Have you been to the V&A? They do great exhibitions, including the Pink Floyd one last year.

Kapoor, who received a knighthood in 2013, has won numerous prestigious prizes and famously designed the ArcelorMittal Orbit in the Olympic Park. You can find details of the impressive exhibition here.

Line(s) of the Day #AlwaysLookOnTheBrightSideOfLife

Monty Python always look on the bright side of life

If life seems jolly rotten,
There’s something you’ve forgotten!
And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing,
When you’re feeling in the dumps,
Don’t be silly chumps,
Just purse your lips and whistle — that’s the thing!
And always look on the bright side of life.

Taken from the song Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, as memorably used in the film Monty Python’s Life of Brian (1979). The message of the song has become a British anthem, reached number three in the charts in 1991 and was even performed at the 2012 Olympics.
