She did it again! She must realize how fabulous she looks in our cocktail dresses, because Sarah Silverman wore Stop Staring’s LOVE Navy dotted dress last night to the 2013 CNN Heroes event at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City! CNN’s heroes is an annual event that recognizes everyday people doing extraordinary things! Sarah was one of the many stars who showed up to support this amazing event, and show some Stop Staring! love as well.
Here at Stop Staring, we have been blessed to come across some of the coolest people from the around the world…everything from celebrities to local artists, from bloggers to editors, and from business elite to starving students and we have to say, that we are always very excited ,fascinated and humbled ,by how many amazing people our dresses have brought thru our doors. But every once in awhile we meet some really cool person who stands out a little more than the rest and so we have to share these folks with you. If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you may remember a post I shared a while back, of an amazing painting that featured one of our dresses done by Artist Cynda Valle Rogers. We were absolutely mesmerized by her artistic skills and completely flattered that she chose one of our retro dresses for her work. So imagine our surprise when she shares with us another painting with yet another one of our cocktail dresses as part of the subject. I just had to know more about this artist and find out what the deal was with these rad pieces….so I hit her up and heres the scoop…straight from Cynda’s mouth,
“This series of paintings is inspired by memories and accounts of my parents lives and my own childhood from the 50′s and 60′s…Like many fledgling middle class families from the era my own parents’ lives together started with a happy ending (See “The Honeymooners” oil on linen, 52X42- Middle Pic) A few years later there’s trouble in paradise with “All That Glitters..”, oil on linen, 52×42, -Top Pic). In the painting all the family members are isolated;” alone together”. Both paintings feature Stop Staring dresses. There’s a third painting to the series “One Foot Out the Door” (not pictured) where i hope the viewer sees that, though everything looks tidy and shipshape on the surface, things are going bad underneath, and the housewife has (literally) one foot out the door. The model wears a vintage house dress ( can’t wait til Stop Staring comes out with one)! The series will continue with paintings taking place in different rooms of the postwar american home…bathroom, bedroom, etc…I live in an old victorian in rural mendocino county (california,part of emerald triangle) and it is the rooms of this home i’m using for the series (even though i’m “re-staging” memories of a different house, time and place.); Like in a dream at night, time, place and people in my paintings get all mixed up, jumbled together.”
And what a beautiful dream it is! Cynda’s paintings epitomize the beauty and nostalgia of yesteryear, but still breath and speak to you in a very modern and contemporary tone, which is why we love them so much. I think our cocktail dresses are a perfect match and we are honored to have Stop Staring! featured on her pieces. We would love to thank Cynda for sharing her inspiration and photos with us and invite you all to check out her stuff online now!
