Fashion Week Recap

Posted in adventures in life, fashion, Lists with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 18, 2009 by melsanie

One of my favorite looks by Jason Wu

  1. High heels are a must at all times. ALL.TIMES.
  2. The weirder you look, the more your picture will be taken.
  3. Male models, though cute, are not the best runway walkers.
  4. Anna Wintour is more intimidating in person, which is awesome.
  5. The love of fashion is contagious but fashion sense is not.
  6. The tents are really hot and fans or a cooling system are a must because sweat is the worst accessory. Ha.
  7. I felt way too entitled this week.
  8. In order to feel entitled I need to attend a fashion show party and sit closer to the runway.
  9. Favorite collections: Oscar de la Renta, Milly by Michelle, Jason Wu, Max Azria, Christian Siriano, Sophie Theallet
  10. I went to the tents more than once and neither developed an eating nor a body image issue.  I see that as a huge win.

I’m Not Really a “Fashionista”

But I do work in magazines and I’m soooo excited for The September Issue, which is a documentary of Anna Wintour, editor of Vogue.  The September issue is usually the biggest issue in terms of Ad sales for all magazines, but Vogue‘s is always the biggest, last year’s came in at a whopping 972 pages.  Working on the publishing side, I see all that goes into getting ads for September, which means the edit side must be even more hectic because they have to produce a book that’s worth reading…if you can find the edit between all the ad pages.

Anyway, as someone who would love to look as fashionable as the models in Vogue and the girls who work there, I’m really looking forward to the movie.  They seem to go behind the scenes, really talk to Anna, who appears to be exactly how Meryll Streep portrayed her in The Devil Wears Prada.  At one point in the preview she says, “This type is so large and pretentious. It looks like it’s for blind people.”  I mean, come on.  How can this not be amazing?
