It’s an unexpectedly pissy day here as we look out at the grounds of T Lo Estates. Unexpected, because we weren’t paying attention to the forecast, and pissy because it’s been dark and humid and rainy all day, which is in turn making us both dark and moody.
We might have spent the day frolicking in the late-summer sun, starting off with a filling, yet nonetheless healthy and completely-devoid-of-carbs-and-fat brunch somewhere, followed by no-doubt intensive workouts at the gym, and then an endless afternoon spending imaginary money on expensive clothes perfectly tailored to our stunning bodies.
You don’t know. It might have happened that way. Stupid rain.
Instead we’ll probably do housework and watch shitty movies OnDemand. We’re in some need of bright, fun, and pretty. And since we’re having one of those days where we survey the landscape and say to each other, “It’s getting a little Grey Gardens in here, Edie;” who better to provide respite than the fictional Miss Bouvier Beale herself?
But first, our good friend, Press Release:
“Neiman Marcus’ The Art of Fashion campaign features Drew Barrymore as the model. Shot by famed photographer, Norman Jean Roy, the photo shoot features the iconic Barrymore in high-concept imagery evoking the style of mid-century Hollywood studio portraiture.
The first Neiman Marcus Art of Fashion campaign appeared in 1994. At the time it was a revolutionary step for a retailer as the campaign was designed to feature cutting edge fashion, provocative photography and unique styling.
Today the Art of Fashion campaign adds a new chapter with its partnership with Drew Barrymore. Ms. Barrymore is featured wearing a variety of top designers from Neiman Marcus.
“The team at Neiman Marcus wanted to evolve the Art of Fashion by pairing up with a celebrated face and photographer. We felt that Drew Barrymore possessed not only the pedigree and glamour of old Hollywood, but also the confidence and spirit of the modern-day woman – much like Neiman Marcus itself. The project was a collaborative effort between Norman Jean Roy and Ms. Barrymore, and beautifully captures the essence of Neiman Marcus’ edits of the Fall collections,” said Eddie Nunns, Vice President of Neiman Marcus Brand Creative.
The Art of Fashion shoot will debut in The Book by Neiman Marcus and will appear in the September issues of Vanity Fair, Vogue and W. Additionally, Vanity Fair will feature a digital campaign of The Art of Fashion designed specifically for ipads.”
Yaddayaddayadda. The point is, Drew has evolved over the years to become quite the fashion girl and she brings that rare combination of glamour and fun to these pics. The clothes are stunning and the model is working them like a nominee’s clutch on Oscar night. We don’t think Drew has ever looked quite so gorgeous. Perfect eye candy for a cranky Sunday, darlings.
