I simply cannot get over how beautiful this thread is. Right click + save has never been used this much.

Dance Marathon
The Inspiration:
They Shoot Horses Don't They? The 1969 film starring Jane Fonda.
Gloria (Jane Fonda) is a young woman of the Depression. She has aged beyond her years and feels her life is hopeless, having been cheated and betrayed many times in her past. Fantasizing about movies, she sees herself as an actress and decides to head for Hollywood, having got the idea from a movie magazine while recuperating in the hospital from a suicide attempt which resulted from another unhappy love affair. Robert (Michael Sarrazin), a desperate Hollywood citizen unsuccessfully trying to become a director, never doubting that he'll eventually make it. Robert and Gloria meet and decide to enter a dance marathon, one of the crazies of the thirties. The grueling dancing takes its toll on Gloria's already weakened spirit, and she tells Robert that she'd be better off dead, that her life is hopeless - all the while acting cruel and bitter, alienating those around her, trying to convince him to shoot her and put her out of her misery. After all, they shoot horses, don't they?

Continued:

I think this edit just completely gets Debbie Harry down to a tee. Fanni is the right model, Harry makes a great Chris Stein and the clothes, the settings the overall mood just scream Debbie. Its all very laid back almost punk glam - total only girl in a group of boys. Plus I think it stands well on its own - even if you didn't know who Debbie Harry was you'd still be able to tell this was about a 70s rock chick

Diva
Inspiration: Maria Callas
Bio: Maria Callas (December 2, 1923 – September 16, 1977) was an American born, Greek dramatic coloratura soprano and perhaps the best-known opera singer of the post-World War II period. She combined an impressive bel canto technique with great dramatic gifts. An extremely versatile singer, her repertoire ranged from classical opera seria to the bel canto operas of Donizetti, Bellini, and Rossini, and further, to the works of Verdi and Puccini, and in her early career, the music dramas of Wagner. Her remarkable musical and dramatic talents led to her being hailed La Divina.
Photographer: Miles Aldridge
Model: Sasha Pivovarova

I think this edit is really just a testament to what a great model Sasha is. In real life she looks nothing like Callas but in this editorial she's amazing. Take a look at her screaming portrait and the picture of Callas shouting down federal agents. The resemblance is uncanny. I love the styling on this shoot as well - they've gotten it all down; the red lips, the drawn brows, the very dramatic sensuality - that whole over the top decadent glamour that only a true diva can produce. I also think the colors of this shoot really help heighten that drama.

I don't think this post would be complete without some of Callas' music - such a beautiful voice.

^Luxx Thank You for both of those! I'd never seen that Debby Harry inspired edit & I think it's spot on. I remember I used to sing Heart of Glass with my hair brush as a microphoneAnd the Callas inspired is amazing too...that's always been a fave of mine...it was on my list to post but I decided to get some sleep

Jeune Fille
Inspiration: Sue Lyon in the 1962 film Lolita
Sue Lyon was fourteen years old when she filmed to the role of Dolores Haze, the sexually charged adolescent and the object of an older man's obsessions in Stanley Kubrick's 1962 film, Lolita. She was chosen for the role partly because her curvy figure suggested an appearance of an adult. Based on the Vladimir Nabokov novel of the same name, Kubrick's Lolita, although a toned-down version of the story, was nonetheless one of the most talked about films of its day. Only fifteen when the film premiered, Sue Lyon became an instant celebrity and won a Golden Globe Award for most promising newcomer - female. When Lolita was released in 1962, Sue Lyon went to a movie house to see her own picture, but she was not permitted to enter the theater because she was a minor.
