READ: Champagne Supernovas: Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, and the ’90s Renegades Who Remade Fashion by Maureen Callahan

Perfect summer read!
Perfect summer read!

A momentous decade in fashion history. Maureen Callahan tells the history of fashion in the nineties through the lives of Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander McQueen–some of the most iconic beings of the era. The dramatic accounts of the cultural moments are so fascinating and while ultimately tragic, the modern history will suck you in.

From the Publisher:
Veteran pop culture journalist Maureen Callahan takes us back to the pivotal style moment of the early 1990s—when supermodel glamazons gave way to heroin chic, when the alternative became the mainstream, and when fashion suddenly became the cradle for the most exciting artistic and cultural innovations of the age. Champagne Supernovas gives you the inside scoop from a bevy of supermodels, stylists, editors, photographers, confidantes, club kids, and scenesters who were there. They’ll tell the unvarnished story of three of the most influential personalities to emerge in fashion in decades—Kate, Marc, and McQueen—and show why the conditions in the 1990s were perfect for their rise…but also helped contribute to their personal struggles.

If you haven’t been to the movies since pre pandemic times, this should be the first thing you see. Based on the viral Twitter thread posted by Aziah “Zola” Wells in 2015, the movie is about how a roadtrip to Florida to make quick cash stripping turned into a sleepless 48-hour odyssey involving a new nefarious friend, her pimp and her idiot boyfriend. The A24 movie is directed by Janicza Bravo and credits Aziah Wells herself as executive producer.
