Walking into the Park Ave Armory last night, one couldn’t help but notice the two 25-foot tall screens, one projecting a male and the other a female, perpetually walking in silhouette. The image alone was striking but guests of W Magazine and acclaimed photographer Sølve Sundsbo hadn’t seen anything yet. The unknown male and female were revealed to be none other than Calvin Klein darlings David Agbodji and Lara Stone, who through the course of Sundsbo’s “Ever Changing Face of Beauty” blurred the lines of race, gender, culture and even species through a series of digital morphs. Lara’s and David’s body parts were mixed and matched while fashion by stylist Marie Chaix beautifully augmented the surrealistic vibe of the piece. The result was a visually-stunning exploration of the many facets — and faces — of beauty and a true highlight of an otherwise lackluster Fashion Week.

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester dot brathwaite at gmail
