Charisma: it’s not genetic, and you too can have it

It can be used for good or evil, it can be inherent or – apparently – it can be learned. Yes you can be as charismatic as Marilyn Monroe, George Clooney, Hilary Clinton or Pol Pot. Though we hope you opt not for the latter.

Amsterdam

If you’re in Amsterdam on the coming weekend, check out Dear Dutches, an exhibition of photographs that tell the travel stories of Naqia Lee. We may know her as a photo blogger of models and fashion week moments, but with an adventurous spirit and a wanderer’s soul, her visual collection of Amsterdam stories is sure to be worth a look.

Brussels

We’ve long been fans of Remi Rebillard‘s cracked portraits and solemn stories that often show a darker side of beauty and of life. Coming up on April 18th through 28th, at 161 Avenue van Volxem 1190 Brussels, is a retrospective of Remi’s decades-long career of producing thought-provoking work and developing a signature aesthetic that you can’t mistake. If you’re in Brussels, mark it in your diary now.

London

The fashion world has been borrowing a lot from Pop Art of late, what with all those 3.1 Phillip Lim clutches and all. But you don’t have to wear it to appreciate the impact of Lichtenstein’s art on popular culture. There’s still time to check out the Lichtenstein Retrospective at the Tate Modern, which is on now until 27 May, 2013.

Melbourne

Custom tailor some jeans at the G-Star RAW Atelier, which opens on March 14 at Glue, Highpoint. As well as personally choosing the detailing like rivets and buttons, you’ll be advised by a professional tailor on getting the right denim fit and cut. The perfect pair of jeans is something of a holy grail, so it seems too good an opportunity to pass up.
