Colour Dazed

How does one reinvent glamour? That’s the question I’ve been grappling with. I am a big fan of glam, you know… Jerry Hall, Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, love them, been inspired, copied. But I want to look to the future, because that woman is from the golden age of Hollywood, and she doesn’t exist anymore.

 

GOLDEN DAYS
What is glamour, at the very essence? We forget that the medium influences the content. Movies and photography love the gaze, the deep entrancing gaze, and especially that of a woman. It just works, it sells, it has become ubiquitous. Even theater companies are using the recipe of portrait glamour to sell tickets to their plays. A big face peering at you with mesmerizing eyes, can enchant you, it’s a given.

INDIVIDUALITY & CREATIVITY
Maybe the new glam are musicians, or creative women that represent their presence through creativity, through vibrancy and not just to be a femme fatale bent on seducing everyone. Perhaps, the key is to find other seductions. Individual seductions that celebrate who we are–and not just a Hollywood invention used to sell movies, that was passed down from the 30s/50s. That we keep reproducing to the point that it is loosing it’s relevance.

INDIVIDUALITY & CREATIVITY
Colour seems to be the new glamour. I’ve been seeing the new instagram, the new flavour of the beat is candy coated, pink, vibrating, generating the new generation. Colour wants you to be creative, to express yourself.
