I remember a time when the catchy tagline “Le fric, c’est chic” made history alongside Studio54’s iconic personalities.
Now the Studio54 generation’s children try to make history through their tattoos, heavy partying, wrong marriages, dubious circles. Shortly, they’re trying to eat their part of the history cake by shocking everyone. (and their dog!) “Le freak c’est chic” (don’t miss the rest of the pictures right after the jump!)
W Magazine decided to throw a controversial issue on the market this March 2009, causing some serious controversies with the Blame it on Rio’s pictorial starring Madonna and Jesus Luz (and other young male models). One other raising eyebrows point was the Law & Order pictorial with Daisy Lowe, Peaches Geldof, Eliza Cummings, Portia Freeman, Eden Clark, Amy Greenhouse.
While in the supers days, models were discovered on the beach, in their fav store, in airport terminals (bref, in their normal, daily habitat), now they’re recruiting from Gossip Magazines or simply taking Daddy’s Girls respecting the family’s spotlight tradition. The pictorial is signed by Steven Meisel (I deliberately blurred the cigarettes…) in the most sacred tradition of the Jailhouse Rock.
The day Amy Winehouse was declared a trendsetter, I thought it was a joke! Now I don’t think so anymore! How long till the Gossip pedigree drops in value? (you can read the W magazine interview here, photos via W Magazine) (thanks, Adriana!)
