Seberg was an attractive lady but you guys going on about how short hair is more flattering are taking crazy pills. Just compare and contrast. Here she is with slightly longer hair ( once could only imagine her with a full mane) and she blows away the version of her with short hair.

I think she's one of the few girls that looks just as good either way.

I could go into it at length but in a nutshell, with the proliferation of the internet into our everyday lives our current cultures content gets diluted through the stream of constant updates, blog and forum posts, news articles, youtube videos, etc...

With this high level of diluted content comes an increase in consumption amongst the general populous and in the higher extremes of consumers there is a strong trend of dipping into previous trends or cultures to supplement their content diet when there is not enough current content to occupy them. The reason why 80's parties never go away, why nearly every blockbuster movie these days is remakes or sequels of established comic books or movies.

We are running out of content and we are too easily occupied to give time to new kinds and forms of it when previously established content gets rehashed very simply and on mass in easy and recognizable forms.

Now this regurgitating of previous cultures has always been apart of our society, but not at these high levels, and fashion seems to be one of the most obvious. I seem to remember that the leg flares were a trend in the mid to late 90's and if that is the case then it seems that fashion is a head of the bell curve.

That's my opinion piece on this subject in a very incomplete and short form, hope it clears up my statement for you.


Very interesting thoughts. I don't have an opinion yet, but very interesting.

Veronique Branquinho's been doing it for years (awesomely). Also Margiela had quite a bit of semi-boot cut type pants i think.

I'm getting sick of this being a centrepiece of a look. When it's done well you don't notice it though, and it looks good.

it is pretty ubiquitous, it's been the hipster thing for the past year or so now

Because this applies to all girls right?

compare & contrast away:








as I said earlier, "except for Halle Berry and Steve McQueen's wife, right?"
