i think us vogue is more of a lifestyle magazine, and articles about the rich and famous are going to get more attention from the average person than even the most beautifully shot editorials, especially if someone can look at the column beside the photo and see that the pants alone cost as much as a car.
because of their statistically unusual physical features, models probably can present the designer's vision in a more "true" way than an actor can. but without a famous face to wear the clothing to the oscars, who will know of the designer? who had heard of narciso rodriguez until carolyn bessette got married in his dress? well, maybe YOU had
- but josephine average who buys vogue on her way out of safeway hadn't. she buys it to see what the rich are up to, not to dress like them and stand out in clothing no one else can relate to.
i guess i see this as part of a general dumbing down of america, not specific to the fashion industry. so i'm asking, what upsets people? -
1: actors and lifestyle (low culture) as opposed to art/fashion (high culture) dominating the content of vogue, or
2: models can do it better, and should be getting the jobs that actors are getting, or:
3: another issue.
sincerely wondering, meme
