Melanie Vote Paints Girls With Some Edge

Melanie Vote's Girl With Double Headed Hare (2008).

No offense to Gemma Arterton, who may or may not be smokin’ as the next Bond girl, but we know where they should be looking for James Bond’s next love toy: DFN Gallery thru October 25, where Melanie Vote has painted a bevy of wolfish women transcending their girlie confines. Some of them, as here, are more of the Lolita persuasion; others are descendants of Amy Winehouse. Another looker after the jump.
