This image of Phoebe Philo, shot by Daivd Sims for Vogue in 2013, is on its way to iconic status, if not already there. Iconic images become iconic because everyone can see themselves, or see something they want to emulate in the image. Personally, I want to emulate everything about it, except that dog-sized bag sitting at Phoebe’s feet. A fashion writer who broke down the nuances of the image after it went viral referred to the bag as “a pet sitting at her feet. ” Admittedly, the name of the writer is lost on me, but her description of the bag is branded into my brain.
