Pop Style Opinionfest: The Enduring Mystique of Marilyn and the Singular Career of Anna Wintour

Posted on June 17, 2022

It’s all about those iconic women who tend to dominate the conversation this week, darlings.

 

 

 

First up, we have some thoughts on the teaser trailer for Blonde, starring Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe.

 

 

 

Those thoughts touch upon her suitability for the role, our concerns about the film’s depiction of Marilyn and our observations on how they’re promoting it and what films they seem to be taking their cue from in order to do so. After that, we segue right into the modern day Marilyn story that won’t go away: Kim Kardashian and the purported damage she caused to Marilyn’s iconic “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” gown. New developments revealed themselves this week and we run down all of them.

After that, it was our extreme pleasure and honor to host and interview fashion journalist and author Amy Odell about her new New York Times best-seller, Anna: The Biography.

 

 

It’s a deep dive on the book’s revelation’s, the author’s process, why Anna Wintour gave her roundabout cooperation, and what her legendary career and status as a cultural figure mean in the larger picture. It’s not all Devil Wears Prada-style gossip, we can assure you.

 

 

 

 

Thank you for listening, darlings!
