Fashion Friday Favorite: Cindy Sherman at MOMA SF- a true pioneer in fashion styling


Today, after seeing Cindy Sherman’s retrospective at the SF MOMA, I got to thinking. She truly is the one of the first fashion stylists. After all, this exhibit deals with the issues of identity and representation. Isn’t that what fashion styling is all about?

Consider, she does all of her own wardrobe styling, make-up, hair and props. She evokes emotion and is intent of styling an image that is representative of a state of mind, a position in life or a certain character.

Many of us strive to perfect our signature style, while Cindy , has 150 shades of style. I”m curious- what is her real style? Her artistic style is certainly that of a an ever-growing, striving artistic person.

She notices every single detail that would make up someone’s persona or signature style. From the eyebrows, to the wrinkles, the shoes, the socks, the skin, the hair it is truly incredible.

In her socialite portraits, she tries to show the excess before 2008 and the hidden mask underneath all of this excess. What is this ” person” really trying to hide?

In the exhibit, they are images are large on purpose, to express their excess and for you to analyze the details.

Here she is playing fashion victim gotta love it and love Balenciaga!

So- mix it up. Get into your closet and try on some new looks. If you haven’t defined your signature style- do it now- before Cindy does!

The exhibit at SF MOMA runs now thru October 8th.
