Lorena Saravia is a master of the art of mixing neutral colors with more energetic, borderline-acid hues, and this season was no exception. Her new collection explored silhouettes (a balloon-shape dress in light cotton served as the perfect example of shape and form), textures, and volumes with pieces that are easily identified as her own designs. Her signature aesthetic was most obvious in the white denim looks paired with her iconic Saravia cowboy boots that walked down the runway this evening. To spice things up, the designer contrasted the bright lights from the city of Oaxaca glistening in the background, with her dressy separates in shocking pink, and sharp blue satin, used most successfully in a tailored suit in sharp blue satin.

DRILLMATIC Heart vs. Mind is everything we hate about The Game — and some of what we love

There is auteur theory, and then there is its perfect opposite: The Game, an artist so totally devoid of direction or personal identity that the projects released under his name become insatiable vacuums, taking on the characteristics of whichever more distinct rappers or producers happen to be floating through the studio, or through his headphones, on a given day. When he invites another vocalist onto his song, he contorts his voice to sound like theirs; he seems to think the most effective way to channel better (usually dead) rappers is to insist, as he does over and over in his verses, that he’s done so. He absorbs stylistic tics and regional differences with all the subtlety and grace of a boardwalk caricature artist.

‘I thought drink and drugs enabled my creativity’: Julia Cameron on the drama behind The Artist’s Way

The first and only rule of morning pages is that you must do them every morning – no exceptions. In practice, everyone makes exceptions. But, in the more than 30 years in which Julia Cameron has started her day by writing down three pages of stream-of-conscious thoughts, she has only ever missed one. That was years ago, when she was travelling to New York from her home in Santa Fe, New Mexico, over several flights. Her cherished morning routine was lost in transit. The impact of the disruption is what Cameron, 74, remembers.
