While I was like a " heroin-chic", I thought that it would be the perfect moment to empathize with the " sick" characters from a movie that I consider as good as Oliver Stone's The Doors(1991) - namely Alex Cox's Sid and Nancy(1986). You can easily predict that it is about the lethal love of Sid Vicious( Sex Pistols) and Nancy Spungen.
After watching this impressive movie, I rememberd that a huge " Punk manifesto" is happening on Vogue: " Punk: The Chaos of Couture":

- Humans of New York: http://www.vogue.com/vogue-daily/article/from-the-archives-punk-in-vogue/#1
I have chosen some iconic images of the most iconic Punk figures:
Vivianne Westwood ( Punk's mother)
Jean Paul Gaultier
What do you think of this eccentric, shocking and violent movement?
I see it as an act of great courage, especially for the '70s. The style is a little extreme for me, but there are a lot of " heroin-chic" models like Kate Moss or Irina Lazareanu who would definitely look fabulous in a Punk inspired outfit.
I will be back on this topic.
Have a nice evening!
See you soon.
