face of fashion

There are a few reasons why I am looking forward to being in London this spring... One of them is that I always look forward to seeing what is being worn on the streets (though LIB reports that British femmes are at a style standstill) and the other -also predictable- is for the impressive range of exhibits at museums and galleries throughout the city. The latest one to pique my interest comes via susie bubble: the works of photographers Alas & Piggott, Corinne Day, Steven Klein, Paolo Roversi and Mario Sorrenti are to be featured in an exhibit titled Face of Fashion at The National Portrait Gallery. I wish that a wider range of photographers had been included, but as it is, the exhibit's title asks a curious question. Can fashion be defined in just one face?

I guess Kate could epitomise the 'face of fashion' although I think she is also the face of many other things...

I don't think that fashion has/should have only one face, since fashion is part about reinvention and new things to discover... and yes, I'm kinda tired of Kate too.
