The Portrait Of Isabella Blow

7 years ago by

Yesterday, before getting on a plane to Milan, Scott and I made a quick trip around the National Portrait Gallery of London. That’s where I saw this sculptural silhouette of Isabella Blow (which I snapped with my Iphone before a security agent told me not to), the cult stylist and muse who discovered Alexander McQueen… and Stella Tennant, who we talked about yesterday.

This is actually a shadow silhouette comprised of stuffed animals and feathers that recreate her profile perfectly.

It’s a work by Noble and Webster. Simply fantastic.

The Portrait Of Isabella Blow by Noble and Webster, at the National Portrait Gallery of London, until the 13 of march. Free admission.
