Behind the Scenes, Getty Center

Fashion Off the 405

Fashion Off the 405 is a Flickr-based project that documents the many different visitor styles of the Getty—from the trendy to the casual to some wild street style.

As summer’s heat wave hits here in Los Angeles, we’re all looking for the best way to stay cool. Fortunately, here at the Getty Center, summer has never been cooler. The Getty Center is frequented by some of L.A.’s most stylish, and they are bringing many shades of cool to the museum scene. We were so impressed, we had to share.

Whether you’re trekking to the top of the hill for Friday Flights, looking to dance the night away at Saturdays Off the 405, or just coming to peruse the garden in full bloom, we want to capture your perfectly curated outfit.

Check out some of my favorite looks and be sure to drop by and say hello if you see me in the crowd, camera in hand.

      #ThyCaptionBe: Warnings to the Rich & Powerful

      You captioned this detail. And we’re revealing the full story now.

      It would be awesome if this was Medieval hangman, or a really awkward frat party, but it’s actually the result of a one-letter swap gone wrong in a book about the fates of the rich. 

      Here’s the full story:

      You sometimes regret what pops out unexpectedly when you open your mouth, but in this case, even the fish must have been quite surprised when a wooly lamb burst forth. 

      The stories in this text by Giovanni Boccaccio warn of the terrible fate that often awaits the rich and powerful. He uses here the example of King Polycrates, who tossed a ring into a river, hoping for good luck, and found it later in the mouth of a fish. 

      Someone got confused, though, and instead of a ring (in French, annel), what came out instead was a lamb (agnel). Apparently, neither the ring nor the lamb worked because the king was later hanged (background).

      #ThyCaptionBe is a celebration of modern interpretations of medieval aesthetics. You guess what the heck is going on, then we myth-bust.
