Vogue Spring Issue
As I turn the pages of the issue filled with “Haute Couture” aka “hot” clothes, or clothes I could never wear, but do drool over. I thought I’d jot down a few observations about this issue.
1st- I think Vogue should come with a tissue for dabbing the drool from your chin.
2nd -The ad for Dior features a model that resembles the incredible film actress Katherine Hepburn. I am a huge classic film fan. I recently uploaded a video to youtube featuring classic film stars…but I digress..
3rd -As I slowly turn each page, devouring each ad as if it were nourishment for a fantasy life. I come across the David Yurman ad, the model is wearing aviator sunglasses. Aviators are back! Oh how I loved mine and don’t guys look great in them, swoon… I sure wish I would have kept mine…..sigh
4th- After moving further along I arrive at the Donna Karan and Anne Taylor ads. Be still my heart, I love these designers, their designs scream “I am woman! “. Donna Karan’s cologne cashmere mist is one of my favorites too, so feminine.
5th- It cannot go unnoted that 95% of the models in the ads do not smile. Which I think is silly because, look what they’re wearing, and doing for a living. There’s nothing somber about that. Why don’t the designers encourage the photographers to have the models look as if they enjoy wearing all of these fabulous things? Instead most of them look like their dog just died…..
Okay, I’ll stop on the Jones New York signature collection ad, another favorite of mine. The model is lying in a hammock wearing a fabulous hat and gorgeous outfit, and I think she even appears a bit happy about it.
Do you read Vogue? What do you think about the ads?
