Point of View


"I am woman; I am not girl. I do not emulate the pop-burlesque fashion stylings of Ke$ha or Katy Perry. I do not aspire to PASSE MORNING-AFTER CHIC, with bird's nest-hair and shredded leather leggings. (...) Have you considered the REBELLION, the nonconformity, inherent today in a Mamie Eisenhower knit suit? Have you worn a crinoline lately? (...)
Can we get an "Amen" up in here?"
American Vogue July 2010


KIND of AMAZING GUYS?
(cut it out of the magazine and hang it on your refrigerator, obvz!)

Ps. the WHOLE July issue is SUPER awesome.
I highly recommend it.

Rachel Lily said...

Is this a reference to the scene in Sex And The City 2, where they sing this very song (whilst Samantha is wearing some bonkers shoulder adornments)?
Is it sad that I kind of hope it is, ha!

If anything deserves to be in large red text, it's STREETWEAR UNIFORMS

Would be great if it weren't so manipulative ... yes, great, we're free of Katy Perry et al. but another dictation replaces it. And as is Wall Street floor is any gauge of humanhood let alone womanhood. What a nightmare capitalism is.

Eleanor: I don't really think it's manipulative or necessary trying to "dictate" anything, especially not in the way that it's written. I'm sure that most of Vogue's readership are older women and the whole "wall street" stuff is supposed to be a measure of women at work making shit happen, in positions of power and not necessarily a gauge of womanhood or humanity.

im ok with capitalism tho.

This definitely deserves the place of honour on the refrigerator.

i sort of see the whole sea of francophile obsessed via sofia coppola wannabes as the antidote to this erin wasson-esque 'passe morning-after chic' as they call it. but i suppose that's more the middle ground a la lou douilon.

i am really curious too as to who did author that. altho it does bring to mind all the shredded high street rebellion (aka balmain) in the pages of vogue....

seeing some of mr. martinez's influence in the gutsier layouts.
