Iekeliene Stange Gives Us a Sneak Peek of Her London Art Opening

One of our favorite things about newly platinum model Iekeliene Stange: She's not shy about self-expression. When she's not confidently cruising the runways of Galliano or Gucci, she's stalking the streets of Paris or New York in a très cool clash of patterns and vintage wares, all a perfect amalgamation of this iconoclast's unconventional style. Naturally, we wanted a front-row seat for her latest handiwork: A new exhibition of her polaroids, paintings, and drawings in conjunction with fellow artist Victor de Bie. She shared some snaps and diary blurbs from behind the scenes so we wouldn't miss a thing, and neither would you.
