Caroline de Maigret crossing oceans, Jerry Hall cooling down at the beach and Jessica Springsteen escaping the burning sun in the hay –  it’s time to round up summer 2018’s Insta moments. 

TEXT Astrid Hiort

Sit back and watch Madonna take the reins while horsey moments with Elizabeth Taylor and Princess Diana take us down memory lane – scroll through the treasures we’ve picked out for your pleasure.

BRITISH MUSEUM

Throwing some of Rodin’s inspiration into the mix, because why not?

🐴 @mywhitetap captures the detail of this 2,400-year-old ancient Greek sculpture in our #RodinExhibition. Rodin was captivated by the Parthenon sculptures and visited the British Museum many times to admire the ancient works. This horse’s head was created for one of the corners of the Parthenon pediments (the triangular architectural feature that usually sits atop columns). The horse is shown exhausted after pulling the moon goddess Selene’s chariot across the night sky – the jaw gapes, the nostrils flare, the veins and eyes bulge. Rodin would have appreciated that the whole of the horse’s expression has been rendered in the head alone – the rest of the body and chariot are implied as they couldn’t fit in the corner of the pediment. See masterpieces created thousands of years apart in our #RodinExhibition and trace how the sculptor was inspired by the art of ancient Greece.

Production assistant at MGM , Louise Carroll , had been preparing to tour the country in search of a young actress for the lead in National Velvet when Elizabeth nominated herself for the role . "I remember Elizabeth's exact words . She entered my office, looked at me , and announced that we need look no further. " "I'm going to play Velvet " she declared. "I had to give the girl credit for knowing what she wanted , but I explained in a delicate a manner as possible that the role of Velvet Brown was that of an adolescent girl who had already begun to develop a women's figure. At age eleven , Elizabeth still looked like a child and had not yet developed breasts, "Dont worry ," she responded definitely. "You'll have your breasts." With that , she wheeled around and marched out of the office, her Mother following close behind. ….And the rest is film history. Elizabeth got the part and the figure and was set for stardom #style #film #actress #1940s #blackandwhitephotography #vintagephotography #beautifulgirl #hollywood #icon #1940s #oldhollywood #fabulous
