For New York's Fall Fashion Issue, photographer Bobby Doherty inserted items from the season’s runways into stills from iconic movies, from Belle du Jour to American Hustle. Click through the gallery ahead to see Cleopatra in Stella McCartney, Barbarella in Gucci, Marie Antoinette in Dior, and more.”

I worked really hard on this! Here is the whole slide show. Enjoy!

The Anaconda Shake-Off is real, and it’s spectacular.

“Like the dancers in “Shake It Off” who Swift adorkably has trouble relating to, Minaj is intensely devoted to her aesthetic, one that no one else in the pop mainstream can even get close to. The average person can’t relate to Minaj, and she’s quick to tell us so. That’s one of the reasons she’s so much more compelling than Swift will probably ever be.”

…this is a woman who has built her identity on her looks, and on what she’s been told to do. So what you’re getting is someone who married this man, and he gave her everything, and she did what she was told, and she is basing her self-esteem on her looks, and that’s very, very rocky ground… Betty’s life is a performance. She’s acting all the time. And she doesn’t know how not to do that.  -  Matthew Weiner discussing Betty Draper
