Celebrity120 Years of Vogue: THE September Issue

The coveted September Issue is even more special this year, as it marks the 120th anniversary of everything Vogue. To mark this milestone, only the most stylish models, actors, designers, singers, and fashion personalities contributed to this GORGEOUS editorial spread, shot all over the world by Norman Jean Roy. Their connection: they’re all under 45, and they’re all making fashion happen right this very moment. The best part is matching the faces to the names, which is much easier when you follow this for reference. And for those of you who don’t need to peek at a glossary, I salute you.

ArtStreet Stone: Turning Stone Statues Into Stone Cold Foxes

And here I thought Photoshop was just for fixing zits… That’s right, artists Léo Caillard and Alexis Persani didn’t actually sneak into the Louvre and carefully style these centuries-old statues. I’ll let you in on a little secret: Caillard came up with the concept, photographed the statues themselves, then dressed his friends in the outifts you see below, and posed them to look just like our friends in stone have been standing for all these years. That’s where Alexis Persani provides his magical retouching skills to take Caillard’s models out and carefully “dress” the classics in the latest casual menswear. The result: Street Stone. It was about time these guys had a little wardrobe intervention, am I right?

ArtYour Favorite Movies in Miniature by Murat Palta

Turkish artist Murat Palta knows his classics: Ottoman miniature and cult. This incredible collection, which he calls “Classic Movies in Miniature Style”, is his senior thesis, “an experiment to blend traditional ‘oriental’ (Ottoman) motifs and contemporary ‘western’ cinema.” These amazing hybrids take characters we know all too well, and place them in the stories that made them memorable, but reimagined in the miniature style, and with a few Ottoman-inspired twists… Check out The Bride’s new catsuit (below), or the slow motion car scene from Inception as an even-slower-motion carriage dive.

 Who doesn’t love a great scarf? Well, this trend to watch proves that scarves are just too chic for necks to hog all the fun.
