It’s no secret that Roitfeld has had an affinity for Disney since the early days of her developing personal style. For the debut issue of CR Fashion Book, the titular editor-in-chief paid homage to those early Disney lunchbox toting days (and made us all want one).

Now, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris has called upon childhood nostalgia for the 4th issue of her biannual style and inspiration publication. And damn if isn’t page after page of fairytale princess fashion porn. (that’s a thing now, I’ve decided.) Continue reading

ENDitorial: VOGUE and Nostalgia for Classic Superman

Once upon a time before this latest abomination of a film, Superman was…. Superman. He wasn’t big on the obscenely monumental destruction of public property,

he actually wore red shorts,

and oh yeah… Spoiler alert: HE WASN’T KILLING PEOPLE.

Before the New 52, he was even happily married to Lois Lane.

For this month’s enditorial, we’re taking a nostalgic look back at the All- American Superfamily as depicted by Vogue. Shot by Mario Testino, top male model David Gandy portrays the Man of Steel in this fashion spread, not tearing towns apart, but simply being the all American boyscout we all love on a family outing. While supermodel (naturally) Carolyn Murphy paints Lois Lane as a super mom to her super darling. The women share the spotlight with supes sporting chic, retro feminine, near identical looks.

Luxurious and lady-like,  heart-melting and super sweet.

ENDitorial and review: Spider-man: Turn Off the Dark

Glamour and the Geek ENDitorial: SPIDERMAN: Turn off the Dark

Annie Leibovitz for Vogue

 

A few weeks ago, I finally got to see the highly talked about, ever changing spectacle that is Spider-man: Turn Off the Dark.

Since it’s rocky start, the show  has been no stranger to controversy as it has been plagued with a myriad of problems, including hospitalized actors, endless rewrites and the loss of it’s original director, Julie Taymor (whose artistic vision can be witnessed in Broadway staple,the widely successful The Lion King).

At first I was really excited about the prospect of finally being able to witness the production for myself. However, with reviews as horrible as they’ve been, I adjusted my hopes accordingly. I went in to the theater wishing two things: “please don’t suck” and “please…. nobody fall on me.” Well… no one fell on me.

Here’s the deal, it didn’t entirely suck. I’m a very visual person and I found the production absolutely stunning. I could clearly see Taymor’s aesthetic in it’s full glory in the beautiful opening number featuring women weaving on a massive scale via swings (exactly).

Also, I would actually purchase some of the costume pieces I saw, with there deliberate black, ink-like streaks. It was genius. A perfect example of interpreting comic art into fashion. I have half a mind to design an entire collection based around this idea…. maybe. The major problem lies in the horrible U2 written and composed score. Horrible is an understatement. I’m refraining from using the word I want to use. The singing of these lackluster, unmemorable songs was not much better. And actors singing over each other led to some off-key, cringe-worthy moments.

You do want to SEE this musical (if you can get tickets for next to nothing), especially if you’re sitting in the orchestra like I did, and Spider-man is flying overhead witty quips and all. Arguably, the high-flying action was the best part of the show. That being said, you don’t actually want HEAR the musical. Which is a bit of an issue, seeing as… IT’S A FREAKING MUSICAL! If you ever do go, my suggestion is to download the soundtrack to the first Toby McSpider-man movie, and listen to that during the numbers.

But back to the beauty of the production! I found the costumes amazing. So for this month’s enditorial” I’ve chosen a gorgeously geeky Spidey spread from Vogue, featuring the fierce Coco Rocha in some breathtaking Zac Posen gowns posing alongside costumed characters. Honestly, I found this editorial more compelling than the actual production. Thank goodness for high fashion.

Evening looks go futuristic fancy / space-age sparkly in this stunning, widely talked about editorial for the August 2013 issue of VOGUE featuring supermodel Karlie Kloss, and world-renowned French robot duo, Daft Punk, who wear Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane throughout.

“Where to wear these out there outfits,” you wonder?

Worry not, as the editorial pairs Karlie’s looks with potential parties and events, for inspiration or early planning.

I dare say, I wouldn’t mind rocking these frocks come New York Comic-Con. Tres chic geek, no?
