ART EDIT: PABLO PICASSO’S WOMEN OF ALGIERS

New York City - Unless you were living under a rock for the last couple of days - I'm sure you've heard the hot news about Pablo Picasso, but we'll get to that in a second...

"Looking Forward to the Past," Christie's unprecedented evening sale of impressionist, modern and contemporary art, witness the most valuable work of art ever sold at auction - of course, I'm taking about non other than Pablo Picasso's "Les Femmes d'Alger," Version O from 1955, which sold at Christie's New York for a staggering $179,365,000 (I know - that's a lot of zeros!).

Oh, it must be nice to be able to dish out that kind of money for a painting, right? But remember darling is not just any painting - it's a Picasso masterpiece! There's no doubt that Pablo Picasso (The Master of Cubism) still got

it!

Naturally, I'm a fashion aficionado and somehow I managed to link the ultra-cool world of art with the frivolous world of fashion for this particular story - if you asked me both cannot exists without each other!

So, just in case you can't afford to buy your own Picasso masterpiece - I thought it be nice to at least be able to wear something that resembles a Picasso painting...So, here is Tory Burch's ode to Françoise Gilot and the time she spent with Piccaso in Vallauris - an artist hub during the 1950s in the South of France.

There's a casual yet elegant ease to the collection, which is best portrayed through the usage of color blocking and brushstrokes seen in classic works of Cubist art. You can thank me later...
