New fashion movie alert! This time it’s actually not a movie, but a documentary about the US september edition of Vogue magazine. The documentary is made by R.J. Cutler and follows Editor in Chief Anna Wintour behind the scenes of the making of the september 2007 issue of Vogue. To give an indication about the importance of the september issue: it weights 2 kilograms and has sold 13 million copies!
The movie shows Anna at the Vogue offices in Manhattan NY, but also follows Sienna Miller at a Vogue covershoot.
Take a look at the movie trialer:
The film will be in Dutch cinemas from 17 september 2009.
Hereby I officialy introduce the first Three in a Crowd contest!
What can you win: a free ticket for the Blur reunion concert in Hyde Park, London on Thursday the 2nd of July! Woohoo!
Well, maybe I should give some extra information first. I was supposed to go to London with a friend of mine, and we both got tickets for the Blur gig in Hyde Park. Which I’m really looking forward to, because I loved them from the very first start (well, not really, I didn’t find Leisure that interesting but I have been a fan since Modern Life is Rubbish). But my friend can’t go because of “work commitments”. So now I have to go alone, and I don’t mind going to gigs alone, but I would like to see the opening acts (Foals, Crystal Castles) and to spend the whole afternoon and evening all by myself isn’t that attractive. So I made up this contest: I’ll give away her ticket, but in exchange you’ll have to go with me….;-) I promise I’m no freak, mass murderer or nerd, and I will behave decently!
Anyway, if you would like to go, just sent me an e-mail: threeinacrowd at hotmail dot com.
Check out the rehearsal for the 2009 gigs…..:-).
A couple of weeks ago, we found out that American designer Anna Sui was going to create a collection for Target. According to Target, the collection is inspired by the tv-show Gossip Girl.
While doing some “research” (ahum) for this blog, i stumbled upon the website of Nylon Magazine. Some of the items of the Target collection look very simular to Anna Sui’s earlier runway collections. I added the pictures of her past collections to the ones of the Target, so you can check out the simularities for yourself. Take a look:

Anna Sui Spring 2007
Anna Sui Fall 2006
Personally, I’m a bit neutral about this collection. I like some of the items, like the black dress on the second picture and the white lace dress with the blue bow (just cut off the blue bow and wear with black tights), other items look like we’ve all seen it before. For instance in the fall of 2006. 😉
In stores on the 13th of september 2009.

There aren’t many fashion events in the Netherlands: there’s a yearly Fashion Week in Amsterdam and sometimes there’s a random exhibition, and that’s about it. Personally, I think the Amsterdam Fashion Week is very overrated: the usual (boring) Dutch fashion designers, the same (boring) Dutch Celebs, and a lot of attention from the (boring) Dutch press. So finally there is an other, much more interesting event: the Arnhem Mode Biënnale.
Some quotes from their website:
”Every two years the Arnhem Mode Biënnale presents the state of affairs in fashion design at an international level. In the space of four years the fashion biennale has evolved into a major trend-setting event with a robustly international orientation. For a month the centre of Arnhem will literally form the core of the third edition of the Arnhem Mode Biënnale.”
“The biennale theme of SHAPE forms the leitmotif for a series of inspirational programme components. To take just a small sample from the programme: for students there are informative workshops, fashion enthusiasts can follow an enchanting shopping route, and for professional visitors there are lectures. And what would a fashion fiesta be without a catwalk?”
“SHAPE is the connecting thread of the greatest cultural fashion event in the world. This year more than 80 fashion labels are participating, including Lanvin, Raf Simons, Hussein Chalayan, Jil Sander, Rick Owens, Martin Margiela and Viktor & Rolf.”
So next week P. and me are going to see some exhibitions and will return with fresh minds about fashion!
Arnhem Mode Biënnale will take place from June 6 to July 6 2009 throughout the centre of Arnhem. For more info check their website: www.arnhemmodebiennale2009.com.

Bleeh….I’m in a bad mood. First of all, it has been raining for days and days. It’s a typically Dutch rainy summer that feels more like fall. Second, I was supposed to go to a festival in Poland (to see my favorite bands the Raveonettes and Sons & Daughters), but it has been cancelled :-(. So now I’m telling myself that the weather will get better (ofcourse) and there are lots of other outdoor gigs to go to (ofcourse). In a couple of weeks I’m going to see Blur in Hyde Park, so please please please dear weather gods, let the weather be nice!
And no mud please….!
Never understood why all girls walk in Wellies. Sure, they are waterproof, but they walk like shit.
Much better: sunhats.
A festival classic: a t-shirt, worn with a lace or floral skirt or as an oversized belted dress.
Fearne Cotton in a tunic dress and brilliant boots at the Isle of Wight festival.
Kelly Osbourne in a colourfull printed kaftan.
Cat Deeley in an embroidered playsuit. Lovely, but what if you need to go to one of those filthy Dixie toilets?
Alexa Chung looking like a festival expert. (Hmm, this could be a nice topic for Gok’s Fashion Fix: how to look expensive in highstreet gear on a festival site?)
Simple and cute, I love her skirt.
Less simple but very glamorous, Dita von Teese at Choachella.
I love everything on this girl, her hair, the sunglasses and a pretty dress. Too cute.
