Spoofs of Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington are a dime a dozen — perhaps because everyone in the fashion industry either wants to be the top dogs at Vogue or simply dislikes them intensely — so it’s pretty outstanding to see one that isn’t just like the rest. Enter the genius mind of Brett Lloyd, who shot a few dudes posing as the two queens regnant of American fashion for Candy magazine.
Candy, as you might remember, brought us those fantastic pictures ‘Lady Gaga’ using a toilet standing up and James Franco covered in makeup and women’s clothing. The James Franco issue is a tribute the icons of the fashion industry, and as delightfully irreverant as Lloyd’s concept is, it’s also pretty spot on. The styling and casting both are pin-perfect — and look how cute their stand in for Tavi Gevinson is!
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
