A LiveJournal user called Shrubrub has created some collages by stacking up every single 2010 Vogue cover from all over the world to arrive to the image below, where she’s pretending to see what would appear as Virgin Mary (I guess I could see that too).

Wonderwall’s intention was to add a breath of fresh air to the more traditional image Godiva instill.  The shop features humorous design details such as the “melting chocolate” ceiling combined with the primarily classical interior design. This is a very bold texture must create a massive visual impact on all visitors. Take a look…
