Even Tori Amos wants to be Teen Vogue's Amy Astley. The singer's new album comes complete with a Tori makeover, where the artist shows five very different versions of herself. One of the alteregos is a wheat-blond waif named Isabel. She carries a camera and wears insane Balenciaga dresses. She also looks just like Ms. Astley, the editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue who's also known for her wheat-blond bob and insane dresses (mostly Marni). Coincidence? Of course, but still - so funny!
Sally's Styling Seminary: An Interview with Teen Vogue's Amy Astley
Teen Vogue is one of my favorite magazines to peruse and read. The happy, energetic images Amy Astley puts on her pages bring pure joy to the unusually serious world of fashion. It's always a pleasure to shoot for Ms. Astley. Indeed, she's been the catalyst for several of my most memorable career highlights. (Hello, Miley Cyrus and Patrick Demarchelier on the rooftops of Paris!) Amy works closely with me when I'm shooting to help me better understand the Teen Vogue girl, and how to create interesting and new images. It's refreshing and inspiring to have such a rich dialogue with an editor about what I'm creating for their magazine. Speaking with Amy about styling gave me even more insight into what makes her editorship at Teen Vogue so awesome.
