Tabloid Whore!



So. People in the fashion industry have probably already seen this a zillion times, but for a little Tabloid Whore like me (and maybe some of you), it's brand new. I just came across this YouTube of a 7 minute short film called "Wendybird" that actress Kirsten Dunst did for designer Erin Fetherston's Autumn/Winter 2006 collection. The short film was screened this past March during L.A. Fashion Week at a party for Fetherston and a fun fact for my fellow Angelenos ... It was filmed over at good 'ol Lake Balboa.

It's quirky and odd with some really cool music, so of course, I'm inexplicably drawn to it.

Fetherston said the "Wendybird" title is a reference to the scene in "Peter Pan" when Wendy arrives in Neverland: "She's more abstract than a girl, she's a bird-girl ... a kind of mythic creature." - Source

I agree with anon 5:28. Jesus, talk about infantalizing women through fashion!! I was embarassed for everyone involved in making this while watching it. There is something weirdly racist about it too--all these skinny white girls in their baby doll outfits, with the white swans (or ducks or whatever the fuck) floating by.... Anyway, I thought it sucked.

I going to be the odd ball out on this one because I liked it. But unlike the rest of the world, I really like Kirsten Dunst.

Racist?? WTF?

I agree with Amy. I loved it and would love to know the list of songs used in the short. I like Kriston also. I don't understand that racist comment either. Apparently we have some folks that don't understand art.

bereagirl thinks this qualifies as "art"? You are too funny. This is a fashion video. Not art.

oh my god people, calm down. it was just an interesting video to show you with kirsten. so much for trying to do something different on here and go beyond the repetitive angelina/brad/jen crap all the time. I'll get to working on some more paris hilton posts which seem to be more your speed i guess!

This isn't a documentary about the common lunch hour practices of the nursing staff at your neighborhood clinic? That is, after they raid the cabinet stocked with controlled substances...
