I'll have to look up Studio 54. I know Andy Warhol went there and it was some kind of club, but I've never dug more into its history. 

Brooke Shields....I've heard the name but will have to look her up too. 

 

Thanks for telling me about Studio 54 and Brooke Shields because I'm interesting in looking them up to see how her look is influenced by them. :Dinah:

 

While my own hair is wild and fluffy and curly, her hair is just too much. It's distracting. And her dress just looks like my grandma's  ripped up doily. 

 

Taylor at times is a dead ringer for Brooke Shields, other times she could pass at her daughter or sister.

And the look if you know anything about clothing history Taylors look was a very similar cut and style that was popular back in the 70's. Even the hair is spot on.

Actually, if we're being honest, most of the looks on the red carpet have been giving homage to looks from the late '60s, '70s and early '80s. From Sara's pants sets to Taylor's white/purple number which is a nod to Audrey Hepburn (who Taylor has also been compared too), Brigitte Bardot and Parisian Avant-Garde fashions of the '60s and '70s and even a little modern gypsy culture. There are also nods to Disco in a couple of the looks Izabel worn (among many others)

 

Fashion at it's best is just recycled fads, camp, and styles from yesteryear...

She was 15???? :mellow:

 

At 15-years-old, Brooke Shields had already risen to stardom as a young actress and model in the 1980s. But, when she was recruited by designer Calvin Klein to appear in a series of overtly sexy print and television ads (shot by Richard Avedon) for his new line of super-tight jeans, she became infamous for uttering the flirtatious line: “Do you know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.”

Jeans are sex. The tighter they are, the better they sell.

-Calvin Klein

 

Unfortunately, a scandalized America didn’t consider Shields’ appearance in the ads, looking much more mature than a mere 15-year-old “nothing”. In fact, the ads caused a public uproar, making negative publicity as much a part of the marketing effort as the ads themselves. Though the commercial was banned by ABC and CBS in New York, Klein himself didn’t back down from his choice.

EDIT: This quote is everything. I am not a fan of Klein's views esp. when they came to models and supermodels. He pretty much started the "starve yourself to the bone" who needs "supermodels to sell clothes...they are suppose to be hangers" era. He said this in an interview on video.

Again it doesn't sound like they're canceling it, just changing the way it's viewed and formatted.

 

 

 

Here is the full memo

 

 

that's what i think (i posted it to know your opinions). who has read the memo? because these people haven't read it tbh. i think there's not show this year and they'll do a tour like in 2004, which i think it's a good idea since nobody knows their angels and it's a good way to know them, but anyway

Why are we still acting like this VSFS info is news? :idk: It's been weeks, and it's also been REPEATEDLY stated that VS is developing a different event to potentially replace the show. 

 

People are lazy and don’t read :Amelie_wft:
