Anne Curtis Makes A Bold Move With Smilebrity Exhibit | Clozette




Acting, singing, dancing, modelling, and hosting – Anne Curtis has tried it all, and she is certainly not ready to stop pursuing new passions. The Filipino celebrity’s latest move? Getting into photography.

As an actress slash model slash host, Curtis is used to posing in front of the camera with a smile that exudes confidence. This time, she’s switching things up. From being the subject of photo shoots, Curtis is now going behind the lens in a bid to tell stories through photographs. While she’s been to many places and seen many things, what intrigues and inspires Curtis most is something seemingly simple but incredibly powerful: the beauty of a smile.

And we totally understand why! A smile can initiate conversations, connections, and brighten up anyone’s face and day. Sure, there are different types of smiles, but they’re all beautiful in their own right. Moved by the magic a smile can make, Curtis has captured countless photos of smiles shared by people who have piqued her curiosity. With her collection of photographs, she’s holding a private viewing for friends and family, dubbed the Smilebrity exhibit.

Curious to know whose smiles Curtis captured? We are too! We’re so excited to see what she has been working on, and we’re sure you will be, too.

One of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, Basquiat was part of the neo-expressionist movement — a rebellion against the conceptual and minimalist art that dominated the 1970s. And like Urban Decay, Basquiat was an outsider who challenged the status quo and used color in non-traditional ways. This collaboration embraces beating the conventional and starting anew, and we're totally digging the boldness of the colours and the artistry of palettes and the swatches. Get the entire collection starting 11 May 2017.
