Celebrities With Bangs

“Almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
Steve Jobs

My super-raging model obsession – Arizona Muse – has nabbed herself all three covers of Vogue Australia‘s triple cover October 2011 issue. With straight to the point styling by Naomi Smith and the crisp photo flavour of talented photographer Kai Z Feng, these have definite collage potential.
