Beyond Fierce

Shows like America’s Next Top Model and Project Runway are fun to watch, but they don’t really reveal the true glory of fashion. Let’s face it – in nine cycles, we have yet to see one of Tyra’s girls make the cover of any fashion magazine worth mentioning, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a Project Runway winner who has sustained her 15 minutes. Fact is, fashion is for the truly fabulous, and no reality TV show can do justice to that je ne sais quoi. See the difference at In Fashion ’07, an unprecedented inaugural exhibition of incredible fashion photography from the finest in the field. We’re talking about the likes of Serge Lutens, Steven Klein, Ellen Von Unwerth, and Stéphane Sednaoui, among many others.

It all began with the wild vision of Miami Beach Art Photo Expo founder François Trabelsi. “Getting so many talented and recognized fashion photographers to exhibit together certainly wasn’t easy,” says expo vice president Rod Kukurudz. “We’ve got an incredible range of still fashion images, famous faces ... it’s going to be an incredible exhibition.” The show has transformed the Surfcomber Hotel into a spectacle drenched in artistic imagery; an elaborate 60-foot-high, 30,000-square-foot structure will completely cover the property. The grand display opens today. Admission is $10 for adults; students under 18 get in free. And some of these images are decidedly PG-13, so, parents, please use your best judgment.
