Two months ago, Dazed and Confused did an enchanting, enchanted shoot on the set of the Neverending Story film. It featured two models, vaguely dressed as the film's faraway heroes, The Empress and Atreyu, wearing elfin dresses from Prada and Rodarte. The spread was styled by Katie Shillington, a fashion editor at the magazine, and we loved it. Now this month, something else that we love: A spread with Bridget Hall, also styled by Katie and inspired by another '80s child classic, Jem and the Holograms. Dazed even made a music video to go with the story, and although it featured a Courtney Love soundtrack, we thought of something else: The quote from Anna Wintour about how the best stylists work from a place of childhood loss, "the degree to which the fashion editor's visual perspective is governed by his or her earliest years... in a great stylist is a deep pool of memory and longing. It's down there that the extraordinary images swim from." Ms. Shillingford seems to like swimming from her old TV set.
