Best Editorial. Ever


Harper's Bazaar rarely invokes any sense of orgasmic editorials, but the August issue literally had me erupting with a fashion orgasm. No, it's not the millionth, boring, nekkid Kate Moss editorial, nor is it a nekkid Gisele riding a cougar (although I wouldn't be surprised at either). As the Simpson's Movie premiere draws near, geniusly, Glenda Bailey had Simpson's illustrator Julius Preite depict the year's fashion moments in classic Simpson's style- yellow flesh and bulgy eyes (or as I like to call them, Masha eyes). With Linda Evangelista (so brilliant) "modeling," Karl, Marc, Alber, Jean, Viktor & Rolf, and Donatella are Simpsonized, and I can say without any sarcastic bitchiness that I love love love it.
Ironic, Homer as Karl, considering Karl's penchant for Taco Bell.
Marge channels Donatella, from the long extensions to the ever-present champagne flute

Alber Elbaz looks like a pillsbury designing god, how CUTE. The purple tie has it.

How aptly cast, Patty and Selma model the sadistic Viktor and Rolf lighting equipment.

Jean Paul Gaultier, Marge in that Coco Riverdance outfit, Maggie in a purse, genius.
And lastly, Marc Jacobs. The cartoons, so precise, right down to Marc's new hotbod and stubble to his classic Stan Smiths.

That's funny! I haven't gotten my issue in the mail yet...I always seem to miss my Bazaars in the mail...

This is absolutely amazing! The maggie in handbag is hilarious and I love the marge/donatella.

I can't wait for this! Like 'Candid Cool', mine's always late. Hearst is such a slowpoke.

Anyway, I saw that video! It's incredible, isn't it?! But I guess underfed, angular, planar, gawky girls are everywhere in Eastern Europe.

i'm not really much a fan of simpsons (don't hate!) but I think this spread has got to be one of my favorites!

Anyhow, you've got some great posts, and I found you via allurefashion (I agree with your stance on fur). My blog's about animal welfare and fashion and if you like it and would like to exchange links, please do contact me
