Have you seen it all before?

22 Aug

Hey dear reader. I recently stumbled across this editorial on Aussie babe Mandy’s blog Oracle Fox. I scrolled through the photos thinking to myself ‘oh I remember this editorial, white buttoned up collar, grey sweater, winged eyeliner, this must be from 2010? 2011?’

Wrong. Elle France August 2012. August 2012! This editorial is brand new and I could have sworn I’d seen it before. Ever have editorial deja vu? 
Now I’m conflicted here, because I love that Alexa Chung is focused, distinct and consistent in her personal style. If you were to cover up her head and show me a photo I could tell right away that it was her. And I love that about her. I hope to one day get to a point where someone could do the same for me. But part of me wonders, where’s the fun in that? Is it repetitive and does it even verge on boring? 

Have we seen it all before?
xoxo Cristina

    Oh that's a disappointment, I haven't seen the Sept issue yet but that's usually a high point! And good point, there ARE amazing designers out there, so no need to lose hope.

    Funny enough I was just watching a video on youtube (an interview with Rachel Zoe) and they were talking about the same thing. How someone's personal style embodies them so much that you don't have to see the person to know who it is. By the way I think I just haven't been on your page in a while but I love the new layout!
