A Peek Into Anna's (Or Grace's) September Issue
Caught The September Issue a couple of days ago; and it was beyond, awesome! It was great, to have the chance to have an exclusive peek; into the life, of the woman who single handedly, took charge, of the fashion industry.
But of course, what was even better, was the chance to see how things WORKED, in Vogue(: The closet; the sheer number of clothes, and shoes, and stuff spilling out are just to die for; it's like, only at Vogue, it does not seem frivolous to be extravagant- or, there isn't such a thing, as being tooo, extravagant.
But what truly captures my attention in this documentary was Grace Coddington; She's such an amazing woman; with a STRONG personality (that's probably an understatement, considering how she stood up for herself against Anna!) She's got both beauty and brains; and she's extremely witty. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that she's BRILLIANT, to think of using the production crew in the Colorblocking photo shoot!
However I have to agree with what Anna's daughter, Bee Shaffer had to say about the industry; fashion is meant to be fun, and an expression of who you are; but some people are just; copying straight out from the pages of Vogue; which in fact, isn't very stylish at all. Sure, you may be fashionable, but if I were to take Vogue away from the person, what would he or she do?!
Now, that's a food for thought.
To end off; I was very inspired after the movie, to do something, Vogue-ish, and so, I was very hard pressed, to take a picture, in front of this beautiful, cobble stoned wall; (who cares if Anna might just have a heart attack if she were to see me, hah!)
I was in a very casual, and very blue mood, that day;
Shirt; Tommy Hilfiger
Shorts; Cotton On
Heels; Prima Vera (They're Esther's! And they're just so cute!)
Okay, I'm off to tidying up my room; after which; I'll be having a bumper post; filled with some of my favorite buys from Taipei!
