passé, parfait in 2007

Diana Vreeland at Harper's Bazaar, Diana Vreeland at Vogue.
Though her eminence developed at Bazaar with iconic covers like Audrey Hepburn and the magazine's plum professional relationship with Richard Avedon boosted the publication's status, Vreeland perfected beauty shots at Vogue from 1963 to 1971 with models onboard like Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, and Veruschka.

The bowl cut, the pompadour.
Oh I'm so glad I got rid of my Johnny Ramone bowl cut right when it's starting to become, and will most likely end up, a fad. I want to see guys sporting modern versions of the pompadour. I want to, I want to.

Chunky heels, skinny heels.
Though currently heavy in editorial rotations, the day will come when thick heels will clack their way out of display shelves and sleeker heels will click their way back in.

The keffiyeh, the headscarf.
When will hipsters get more creative than wearing kerchiefs and bandanas around their necks? Or more controversially, the occasional keffiyeh (or ghutra) as scarves, though Freja Erichsen wore it well. As seen in SS07 Prada, Signora Miuccia moves the influence of the Islamic world from the collar to the crown.

Typos, iSpellWell.
How could Anna Wintour misspell Justin Giunta's (of Subversive Jewelry) name as "Justin Aiunta"? How?!
