Fall Fashion issues have begun to hit the stands, which means readers will be hit with an abundance of items from various new collections to ogle over. While power players like W and Marie Claire are featuring celebrities like Rihanna and Blake Lively rocking the hottest trends, New York Magazine decided to go in a different direction for their September issue. Their funky new edition blends the latest fashion crazes with classic movies, resulting in a spread that’s sure to be one for the ages.


Everybody knows Dorothy wore ruby red slippers in the 1939 iconic film The Wizard of Oz, so browsers are sure to be surprised when they instead catch her wearing a pair of 2014 Saint Laurent ruby red booties. Similarly, you don’t have to be a movie buff to know Marilyn Monroe wore a floor-length bubble-gum pink gown as she sand ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,’ in the 1953 flick Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.


That being said, spotting the blonde bombshell in a still from the movie, but rocking a 2014 yellow printed Moschino dress is likely to give a reader reason to pause. From a Spongebob Squarepants sweater planted in 1963 Hitchcock classic The Birds, to a suit swap in a scene from 2013’s American Hustle, photographer Bobby Doherty has stylishly inserted contemporary styles into some of the most emblematic cinema scenes in history, creating a one-of-a-kind look-book.


As fashion trends evolve each season, so must the presentations of new items. With their Fall Fashion issue New York Magazine has managed to present some of Fall’s biggest pieces in a fresh way while bringing readers back to dynamic moments from years past. What’s more- they have combined fashion and film in an exciting format that shoppers of any age can
