Vogue's July issue contains a fall fashion preview heralding the season's return to womanly, mature, minimalist clothes. The spread opens with this passage under the headline "I AM WOMAN":
Hear me roar. Hear me issue stock-purchase orders from the Wall Street trading floor. I am woman; I am not girl. I do not emulate the pop-burlesque fashion stylings of Ke$ha or Katy Perry. I do not aspire to PASSÉ MORNING-AFTER CHIC, with bird’s-nest hair and shredded leather leggings. No. Of Lana Turner and Barbara Stanwyck — and Lena Horne — I sing.
(Have you felt the smooth, snug tug of fine leather gloves being pulled on? Have you considered the REBELLION, the nonconformity, inherent today in a Marnie Eisenhower knit suit? Have you worn a crinoline lately?)
Reader, if you’re older than fourteen, fashion for fall 2010 offers more WEARABLE OPTIONS than it has in eons. Skirts fall below mid-thigh. Designers are giving us dead-cool-but-still-practical STREETWEAR UNIFORMS for work or school. Black-with-black is totally back.
Can we get an “Amen” up in here?
Might this be in response to Katy Perry getting the most attention for her outfit of anyone at the Met gala this year only because her dress lit up, and not because it was fashionable? Whatever the motivation, these are great reasons to be excited about dressing next season. Although Vogue using the phrase "up in here" is kind of a Ke$ha thing to do.
