Off to Berlin + Contests Galore

I apologize for the short post today. I am packing for Berlin and finishing a project. I will post again in a few days. I am so looking forward to seeing the city, taking in the arts and experiencing the culture. I hear from everyone that Berlin is übermodern with a great nightlife. Thank you for all of the emails and suggestions!

I adore this photo of Keira Knightley, photographed by Mario Testino, in a Louis Vuitton chiffon dress. Featured with Keira are a cross-section of the artists who currently make Berlin the epicenter of the art world. From left to right: Thomas Zipp, Thomas Helbig, Andreas Golder, Markus Selg and Andro Wekua.

You can view "Wanderlust" featuring Keira Knightley photographed in the German capital on Style.com. The complete story appeared in the September 2008 issue of US Vogue.
