Curated by Stacy Engman, 78 fine artists (Will Cotton, Ryan McGinness, Terence Koh), photographers (Terry Richardson, Patrick McMullan), and fashion designers including Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Vivienne Westwood, and Christian Louboutin were commissioned to design a 7" x 10" tarot card of Engman's choosing reinterpreted with their own iconography, all adding up to a full and artful deck.
While the exhibit is open to non-club members by appointment only, StyleList got a sneak peek at the cards, including one of our favorites: Louboutin's Nine of Cups, which represents self-indulgence and power and features an illustration of a woman smoking, drinking, and playing with stilettos.
Westwood's The Chariot card, on the other hand, represents change and carving new paths and features a photograph of Pamela Anderson looking sexy driving a golf cart. Her own chariot of sorts, we suppose.
Richardson and Jacobs also employed photography for their cards.
Jacobs's choice for Knight of Pentacles is a picture most likely repurposed from an old campaign that shows model Kristen McMenamy wearing one of Jacobs's designs and flashing her bare crotch. (Um, yeah. We're not sure how we'd handle pulling that one).
Controversial lensman Richardson's card, Two of Wands, was quite tame in comparison, featuring himself holding two guns in a Wild West scenario to illustrate the concept of imagining one's own destiny.
Which card would you want to draw? Let us know in a comment.
