Tying in nicely with Stanley Moss‚Äôs Navarra story published in Lucire, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao has announced it has opened an exhibition on Frank Lloyd Wright.
The museum says that this is ‚Äėthe largest and most comprehensive exhibition‚Äô on Wright‚Äôs work staged in Europe.
The exhibition runs through February 14, 2010, and is co-organized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, with the sponsorship of Iberdrola. Sixty-three projects are featured, including some unrealized urban mega-structures.

Supermodel Kate Moss‚Äôs fragrance, titled Vintage by Kate Moss, went on sale in September, but the company has only sent us artwork and a video today. The print advertisement has a 1920s‚Äô to 1930s‚Äô feel, while the fragrance itself has fruity and ﬂoriental notes.
The print ad was shot by Mert and Marcus, featuring Moss inside a 6 ft replica of the Vintage bottle.
