Halston & Liza, together forever... in needlepoint.

Home decor darling Jonathan Adler taps into the Warhol spirit by splashing iconic celeb portraits as eye this case, needle pointed on pillows to liven up a slow cocktail party...and a reminder of the sizzle of Studio 54.
 Halston created a look for (his muse) Liza that suited her imperfect looks and figure perfectly, and became her iconic style...on stage and off.
The spark/magic between visual artist and muse has produced legendary, iconic work that they were unable to create with anyone else.
Bob Mackie & Cher
Barry Gordy & Diana Ross
Hubert Givenchy & Audrey Hepburn
Tom Ford & Carine Roitfeld
Yves Saint Laurent & Betty Catroux/Lou Lou de la Falaise
Jean Paul Goude & Grace Jones
David Bailey & Marie Helvin
Stephen Sprouse & Terry Toye
Peter Beard & Iman
Bruce Weber  & Peter Johnson
Steven Meisel  & Linda Evangelista
Kenneth Paul Block &  Babe Paley
Diana Vreeland & Verushka
Richard Avedon & Lauren Hutton
Christian Laroix & Katoucha
Martin Scorsese & Robert DeNiro
Antonio Lopez & Jerry Hall

Thierry Mugler & Jerry Hall!lol

The Artist/Mentor has to be extraordinarily inspired by his muse and the muse has to be a larger than life  female ( or male) archetype and uniquely beautiful/handsome.....and most importantly completely surrender to the will of the Artist. It's often a love/lust affair verging on obsession.
