Asia Argento has remained a constant inspiration to me because of the way she photographs. No matter who she is modeling for there is always something very personal about her work. There's something behind her eyes that lets you know that the work is tainted. When she was the face of Miss Sixty she added a rock star edge that made me see the company differently. She first caught my attention in the Kurt Cobain inspiried film Last Days and drew me in with her performace in the emotionally wrenching The Heart is Decietful Above All Things. She directed The Heart... among other films. In the film she played a lost, neglectful mother who rocked threadbare Sex Pistols tee's, backward sports bra's and Miss Sixty jeans tucked into Doctor Martens workman boots. Aside from acting She dj's and records under the name 23. Asia is multi-faceted and always has style, no matter what she's doing.
I recommend visiting her website, http://www.asiargento.it/, to view her writing, paintings and photogrpahs.
