Welcome to click click, the sporadic review of what I find worth clicking on the internet.
- Without you I’m nothing – Alex Molotkow collects the voices and fates of the wives and girlfriends of rock stars.
- Ms. America – The New Inquiry offers a supplement of Lana Del Rey think pieces featuring actual thinking. Funny to realize I am exactly the demographic for this kind of thing. I especially enjoyed the essays by Gabby Bess on her romance, Robin James on her tempo and Sarah Nicole Prickett on her style. If you stand in solidarity with young creatives getting paid for actual creativity, chip in.
- A Loss For Words – Ann Hollander (RIP) takes on the fashion critic’s dilemma in 1997. In 2014, Nathalie Atkinson questions the lost purpose of fashion criticism as we know it. My opinion is here. BONUS – another Hollander classic, on blondes.
- Bryanboy and the Appropriation of the Fashion Blogger Pose – an in-depth drill down of a pose, this one has a lot going on.
- How to spin the colour wheel – how artists apply colour theory.
- A Fashionable History of Wrestling Hillbillies – promising, thoughtful first post for this unlikely series, suddenly I’m interested in wrestling for the first time ever.
- Elsa Peretti’s Great Escape – she’s still alive! Great, dishy profile.
- Isabella Rossellini in the 1990s – amazing podcast about Rossellini’s modelling career. I love this podcast. This one about Kim Novak’s eternal makeover is terrific too.
