|Myself seated at the University|
A quick update on this week's blogging and Periscope schedule. I will be preoccupied getting my oldest ready for his move into the University, all while celebrating his birthday. I foresee this being a very emotional time for myself and my entire family. Therefore, I am taking this week off from producing content for So What to Twenty and The Intersection. However I might pop on Periscope (@SoWhattoTwenty) for a very small broadcast, and as always, you can catch me on Instagram. As you can imagine, my mind will be on other things.
In the meantime, I would like to share a HBO Documentary I watched called In Vogue: The Editor's Eye. I was happy to find the complete documentary on YouTube (except for a very small portion toward the end). The documentary gives an up close look into the history and role of Vogue's Fashion Editors from the oldest living (Babs Simpson) through the year 2012. It is a fascinating look into how these creative geniuses are able to create such iconic, and often thought provoking fashion images which allow us to fantasize and dream through their eyes.
With appearances from Vogue's Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour, and Creative Director, Grace Coddington, you'll also see a brief interview from the behemoth of fashion editing - Diane Vreeland. I have always gleaned from the fashion knowledge of Ms. Polly Mellon (read about her career in Interview Magazine), who was the Fashion Editor the year I was born, 1966 (who doesn't remember a nude Nastassja Kinski with a snake wrapped seductively around her body). I was completely thrilled to see Ms. Mellen in the documentary as well. Enough of my talk. Watch the show and you'll understand why Fashion Editors are deemed Vogue's Secret Weapon. Enjoy!
