Beautiful poets modeling fashion for Oprah? I wish I could say, finally a time to bring poetry back in the spotlight...In the nytimes author's words "And yet, 'Spring Fashion Modeled by Rising Young Poets' The words are heart-sinking. " As you can see here.
(note: I'll hold my thoughts on the art direction...)
Was thinking about this story in the bus this morning and realized, that to me, it is not so much the fact of having poets model fashion, but the way the story was presented. Would it not have been more "poetic" to just have these beautiful poets model the clothes and run one of their poems along side their photo? Nothing more said, but their name and age? Why go into a truncated dialogue of their thoughts on poetry and fashion?
