in bad taste.

Okay, so the idea of this blog was to give a background to the development of my magazine, which includes of course the inspirations for different things! And so, this isn't the inspiration for the concept I had necessarily, but I came across it and thought it was in the same vein. The shoot I want to do is based on style blogs such as The Sartorialist and Facehunter, who capture streetstyle at its best. Steven Meisel is a really great photographer, but I am not keen on this shoot he did for Vogue Italia in 2005, entitled Hollywood Style. Based on paparazzi shots of the street style of celebs, I think they forgot to make it ironic in the way that the fashion is actually good. I get the 'humour', but it's still a fash mag, no!? But that is my humble opinion...



  1. I completely agree. The pictures are funny, but we shouldn't forget that they're supposed to be for a fashion magazine. I think they should be humorous and--dare I say it?--edgy at the same time. LOL.

  2. Honey, I don't like them either. Not cool, but I do get the 'joke'
