Get ready to think of fairytales in a whole new way. This Thursday, Imagine Fashion is launching a new fashion-does-folklore video that will reinvent Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, The Red Shoes and Pinocchio for the 'Twilight' generation. In other words, Vanity Fair is celebrating fantasy fashion in an editorial homage to the strange and fabulous characters of children's storybooks.
With Imagine Fashion's new short narrative film, 'Matchstick Girl', we see the dark side of Hans Christian Anderson's classic story through enchanting and unsettling beauty. Siri Tollerod stars as the Little Match Girl, wearing (naturally) street-urchin chic by Chanel, Celine, Jil Sander, Jean Paul Gaultier and Prada. Even better? If you spot a piece you like, you can just click through and buy. We give it up for the film's stylist, Antje Winter, who just made fables all that more fashionable.
We always like to see footage from shoots because when you usually only see people still in two dimensions, it's nice to remember that they're actually people who walk and laugh and move. Novel concept, right?
For your Friday entertainment, we bring you Valentino's 'Rock 'n Dreams' TV advert. In it, models Siri Tollerod, Erin Heatherton and Marloes Horst seem to be having a pretty good time, so we hope you do too.
Oh, and for music fanatics, the song is 'Valentino Loves You' by Sophie Carpentier.
