Bella is killing it in this photoshoot for Elle. The series was shot by photographer Dan Martensen for their February issue. Bella is painting the town red for Valentine's Day, I guess? Raise your hand if you actually like V day. I love this gritty take on a fashion editorial, and I freakin LOVE Bella's face.

Seren Moran's art is so bright and fun. She says that in the past all her work had "a concept, a thought, a specific point of reference that I could say this is where it started." But as the inspiration behind her paintings became less apparent in her work, she ventured further into abstraction. "I have now moved beyond this train of thought. I want to explore, and let the exploration be the process, and let the process be the art.
