FASHION BLOGGING: My fashion sense was developed in the mid-80s, and back then, I’d continually see ads for Ralph Lauren’s Polo line. The men and women in those iconic images were dressed and groomed in an impossibly cool and WASPY style, much like the swells who attended Gatsby’s parties in the 1920s (and not coincidentally, Lauren’s name was made when he costumed the mid-’70s version of The Great Gatsby that starred Robert Redford).
So…who on earth are these guys? How did they sneak into a Ralph Lauren ad with those silly clothes? And why does Ralph think I want to look like any of them?
