You should have been on the cover!

Laguna Beach Trad said...

Holy shit, is that you? LOL!! Next thing you know, you'll be appearing on The View talking about how to get in touch with your inner Trad. Too funny.

"So Doctor. I opened up The Trad blog and saw Lady Ga Ga staring at me. The room immediately started spinning and everything went black."

The Blushing Hostess said...

WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO. Congratulations!

Fantastic that you got quoted! Cheers, Tintin!

Fashion may have gone viral, but color sure did not. Muted, muted, muted. They need more of your color sensibility.

...as it should be.....Trad-ditionally speaking of course...

Tom Buchanan said...

Tintin,

Good choices. The irony that is lost on Vanity Fair is that, as a trad, those are your recommendations for EVERY Fall, not just this season.

Can we assume that they did not bother to source a blackwatch plaid jacket for the pictures?

See if you can score a table at the Waverly Inn tonight.

Either my comment was lost or it was ignored by a style guru.... Can I tell people I know you?!

L.A.S said...

Lady Gaga personally requested you for this one, eh?

I REALLY want to see you on The View with those ladies! This is amazing for you - fame can come in the least expected places! Go with it! Enjoy! We miss you. DMW

Congrats. I look forward to hordes of fashion forward types sporting Famous Grouse ties.

TRVS said...

Quite the honor, yet so sad it had to be an issue with such a disappointing cover story...seems even Vanity Fair has condescended to sell magazines.
Too bad it wasn't in the July issue with the lovely Liz Taylor on the cover...you know, a real lady worthy of a cover story.

Belle de Ville said...

Congratulations!!!
You are now officially an arbiter of style. Well done.

Vanity Fair now joins my RSS feed as the only two places in which tintin and Tavi Gevinson appear side-by-side.

Great choices, my friend.

Main Line Sportsman said...

You rapidly become a force to be reckoned with...well done!
VF is my favorite mag for general reading and I await this issue eagerly...

First the New Yorker and now Vanity Fair. That's hot.

Easy and Elegant Life said...

Beyouteeful! Tintin leading from the front again. Proselytize.

ADG said...

Just remember the little guys when you get real, real famous.

Family Man said...

"Lady" Gaga scares the bejeepers out of me. In contrast, the tie is nice.

those tricks said...

aw yeah.

Pigtown-Design said...

I finally cracked open my copy of VF, and there you were! Excellent selections and I am so pleased to see how much PR you're getting, especially since we all know how much time and effort you put in to this blog!

Cheers!

I opened up this issue of VF and looked at all the ads, with a particular eye at how fashion photography has now been robbed of anything memorable, authentic, human or artistic.

Page after page of dead-eyes, skin without pores, airbrushed foreheads, and icy expressionless models.

I remember how startling and seductive advertising once was. I think of Ralph Lauren's Clotilde in her fair-isle sweater.

And now everything in mainstream fashion is decided in boardrooms. Shot by manipulated photographers whose work is then given to a long line of digital fiction artists who drain the blood and soul out of every image.
