James Dean Gazes A Pensive Look

James Dean gives quite an expressive and pensive look in this highly lit contrasted photo still. Strutting an impeccably worn knitted turtleneck top, which you kiddas know very well is right up my alley. Oh how Hollywood and fans alike investigated and speculated James' every move but little did they know, however much they hunted him down, he was a mystery never to be solved.

David Bailey TV Biopic Takes Manhattan

In a new biopic on legendary English photographer David Bailey made famous for capturing the 'Swinging London' scene of the 60s and in this film based on his relationship with muse Jean Shrimpton in a special for the Ovation network.

In the film, director John McKay takes us into the fabled duo's relationship and creation of the world's first supermodel.

A New Biopic Hails the Photographer's Revolutionary Week with Jean Shrimpton

Filmmaker John McKay reveals the painstaking efforts taken to recreate seminal shots from David Bailey’s legendary 1962 trip to New York with Jean Shrimpton for his upcoming drama We’ll Take Manhattan. The film explores the hedonistic love affair between the iconic photographer and Sixties supermodel during a seismic British Vogue fashion shoot. "She's a one-off," says Bailey of the precocious 19-year-old Shrimpton, who was almost completely unknown at the time. Eschewing orders from Fashion Editor Lady Clare Rendlesham to shoot mid-priced British clothes against Upper Manhattan’s elegant landmarks, Bailey embraced his love of street life and bohemia to prowl the city’s grittier environs armed with just one camera and an old teddy bear. The resultant cinéma vérité-style series captured the new liberated spirit of the decade and became the stuff of fashion legend when it was published as a 14-page editorial in the April 1962 edition of British Vogue. "The key thing with biographical material is to get away from the "birth to death" model,” says McKay. “Luckily, Bailey and Jean's trip to New York provided an ideal vertical slice into their love affair, the dawn of the Sixties, fashion, photography, class conflict and sexual politics."

Hedi Slimane Heads To YSL!

Looks like the creative talent that is Hedi Slimane is moving to YSL with a big announcement that is expected to take place tomorrow finally ending the speculation of rumors of what fashion house he would be taking over. As the new creative director of Yves Saint Laurent that means Stefano Pilati will be on the outs after a decade long stay at the French fashion house.

Hedi Slimane is as good as confirmed as the new creative director of Yves Saint Laurent. Stefano Pilati, YSL’s creative director for the past eight years, showed his final collection for the French fashion house yesterday evening and today, the International Herald Tribune‘s Suzy Menkes says the company will make an announcement tomorrow declaring that Slimane is next in line.

This was expected–when news broke of Pilati’s departure from YSL, the company said they would announce a new creative director in coming weeks and industry insiders said that Slimane was a likely, almost definite choice to replace him. And while we’ve grown more skeptical of the little creative director rumors Menkes likes to slip into her show reviews, we’re inclined to believe this one. She dedicates an entire post to the news, writing:

Hedi Slimane will be named on Wednesday as the new creative director at Yves Saint Laurent, according to a senior executive at YSL’s parent company, PPR, who has followed Mr. Slimane’s career in the world of artistic photography.
The executive would not be named until after the announcement because of the sensitivity of the subject.

So, there you have it. The Associated Press adds that YSL chief Paul Deneve confirmed this news to YSL employees in a meeting today and offers further confirmation that an official announcement will be made tomorrow.

This will mark a return to YSL (and fashion design) for Slimane, who designed menswear for the house from 1996-2000. He then designed for Dior Homme and in 2007 quit designing to pursue photography. -fashionista.com

Karen O Readies Stop the Virgens

Yeah Yeah Yeah's abstract frontwoman Karen O' returns to the stage with her latest endeaver the psych-rock opera Stop the Virgens.

Seven years ago, Karen O started working on an album that never saw the light of day. She came to realize the material “was much broader than… a rock record.” Heavily inspired by cinema and theater during her writing process, Karen says she always envisioned the record as more than just music but never had the right outlet for it. Finally, the manifestation of this introspective exercise comes in the form of a psycho-opera of sorts, entitled Stop the Virgens, which debuted last October in DUMBO at St. Ann’s Warehouse in conjunction with our Creators Project: New York event.
