Der Rebel Without A Cause als Stilikone

The Selvedge Yard hat ein schönes Posting, in dem es um James Deans Rolle als Stilikone geht. Ist natürlich nichts Neues, da ich aber die drei Filme von ihm doch schon ziemlich mag, ist mir das ganze einen Beitrag wert. Passt ja auch gut hier drauf, da es ja sowieso mehr um die Fotos geht.

The irony is that James Dean was considered anything but stylish by many of his Hollywood peers of the day.  He turned heads and created a legend, not by dressing up – but by dressing down. Established style icon Humphrey Bogart looked down his nose at Dean, considering him a punk and a slob.  On Jimmy’s passing, Bogart had this to say – “Dean died at just the right time. He left behind a legend. If he’d lived, he’d never have been able to live up to the publicity.” Bogart was right in that Dean was difficult, and definitely not a natty dresser – but his impact on style can never be diminished.

James Dean cemented the rebel uniform for his generation of youth, and for many to come, through his very personal portrayal of Jim Stark in Rebel Without a Cause.

I do agree with all of the ideas you’ve introduced on your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for beginners. May just you please prolong them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
