DALI LIPS

About a month ago I went to see a big Dàli exhibition. In the museum shop they sold some jewellery originally designed by the man himself. As kitchy as it was, I felt a little itch for a glittering lip brooch with red gems and pearl teeth, both ugly and beautiful in the same time. Since it was quite expensive and this was just before christmas I didn't get it but now I'd like to have it on a black dress or on a scarf toghether with a soft creme coloured blouse and my dark red pencil skirt. Or then it would just look good in my jewellery case togehter with all the other stuff, you know, just to look at.
But I'm still not sure if I even like it.

(I couldn't find the exact same one that I saw, it was a bit better I think. These ones are from thisislondon.co.uk and amazon.com)

There is a magazine spread Dalí did about himself in the early forties for Click magazine. It's such a great layout but I can't find it anywhere on the web. Hints anyone?

wow, this post makes me want a pair as well! i've not seen the dali shoot you're looking for, but these do remind me of The Rocky Horror Picture Show Lips.

anyway, i'm adding you back! i adore someone who pays attention to details.
