This is why I love fashion: the sparkles, the shoes, and the near-absurdity of it all.  I’ve already heard a lot of differing opinions about these shoes – mainly concerning their practicality (these approach 10 inches!), but even about the aesthetics.  To be honest, they resemble the head of a Bedlington terrier haha.   Personally, I think they’re gorgeous, and I would consider wearing them if they were comfortable, or if ankle braces suddenly became a fashion statement… Hmm…


The Intersection

Vogue’s website provides an enormous amount of video channels containing anything from runway shows to fashion profiles.  I’m loving the channel “The Intersection,” which stops unsuspecting passers-by in the middle of the city wearing looks that are both innovative and chic.  Check out the girls strolling through Hudson Square. The streets of Tribeca are filled with this season’s designer finest.

The September Issue comes out Friday!

R.J. Cutler, creator of  The War Room, winner and nominee of various awards that you can find on IMDB, documented Anna Wintour and her Vogue-ttes in the making of the most EPIC issue of Vogue ever.  Weighing in at almost 5 pounds, with 840 pages of editorials, shopping guides, and advertisements, the September 2007 issue of Vogue was the single largest issue ever produced by any magazine.  EVER.

And it FINALLY comes to the Triangle this weekend!

Unfortunately, only Galaxy Cinema in Cary and The Rialto in Raleigh are showing it.  But for your convenience, I, the world’s biggest Team Anna member, have graciously compiled the showtimes for Friday and Saturday (they are the same) at Galaxy Cinema:

1:10 4:00 7:10 9:25

Rest assured, I’ll be back Monday with a review.

In the meantime…

  • The movie’s official website
  • A funny clip of Andre Leon Talley (Editor-at-large, inexhaustible source of one-liners, wearer of HUGE capes, visitor of Raleigh this July!, etc.) playing tennis
  • Another clip: Cover girl Sienna Miller has greasy hair, but more importantly, Grace Coddington (Creative director) is awesome!

And don’t forget to keep up with all the Spring 2010 RTW shows on!  Create lookbooks of your favorites and share please!
