Self Portrait Series

Lou Doillon. Daughter of actor Jane Birkin and director Jacques Doillon. Now designing for French line La Redoute (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_yc76499TM) and Lee Cooper Jeans, her self-described style is "French Revolution meets Jos├ęphine, which meets Millais’s Ophelia, wearing Degas’ tutu, Toulouse-Lautrec’s green stockings, Mary Poppins’s boots, and the Artful Dodger’s top hat, kind of with an air hostess hat."

Andy Warhol. The self portraiture of Warhol is ambiguous. Are the works, in fact, accurate representations of the real Andrew Warhol, or simply a means of deception? With his averted and superficial gaze, Warhol seems to deflect analysis and confrontation just like his famous fictional works of art.
