SIA Inspiration: Cindy Sherman

It’s Shelbee’s turn to host SIA, and her choice of inspiration is a pretty unique – a series of black-and-white photos by Cindy Sherman, taken from 1977 to 1980, to mimic film stills of the 50s and 60s. There are over 70 images in total, but here are some of my favorites to give you an idea:

Right out of Repulsion, this one

This one may just be my favorite. Very Hitchcockian

You can see more photos and learn more about the project here, here, and here. You can pick just one image and build your outfit on that, or you can take inspiration from the entire project as a whole – it’s up to you! Just remember to send your outfits to Shelbee (shelbeeontheedge@gmail.com) by next Tuesday, October 18th. Have fun!
