Speaking truth to power

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

Question of the day: Why are there no critical fashion magazines? There are many answers - email your best answer to James@WomenManagement.com.

Q:Why do I love a Cathy Horyn so much?
A:Because she tells it as she sees it, from her unique perspective. Cathy speaks truth to power in the New York Times

Every day I see so many uninspired fashion editorials. Even worse than that are editorials which are so blatantly inspired by recent editorials. It is one thing to copy elements of Herb Ritts' lighting for an editorial, it is quite another to make a career of mopping Bill King's style.

Paris is Burning (Dir:Jennie Livingston)says a lot aboout honesty, and living your life with dignity. It also defines two ways to speak truth to power: shade & reading.

Shade came from Reading. Reading came first. Reading is the art form of insult. When you are Reading someone you get in a smart crack, and everyone laughs. When you find a flaw and exagerrate it- then you've got a good Read going.

Shade is when I don't tell you you're ugly, but I don't have to tell you your ugly - Because you know your ugly - and thats Shade.
