My first article is from the LA Times, called Great Gatsby costumer Catherine Martin a Glamour Woman of the year. The article was about Glamour Magazine is coming out with an issue of the woman of the year which has people like Lady Gaga, Kerry Washington, Gavrielle Giffords and Melinda Gates. (Just to name a few). on the LA Times website they wanted to shine some light on the Tony and Oscar winning designer Catherine Martin. Martin is the creative mind behind the costumes and production designs in husband Baz Luhrman’s films “The Great Gatsby” and “Moulin Rouge,” among others.
My critique on this article would be it could have had a little more information on Catherine. Maybe they could have talked about her background and stated when she won the Tony and Oscar award. It was a short article but very to the point and maybe Glamour Magazine has more information so they didn’t want to spoil it.
My next article was from The Baltimore Sun and its called Bring on the bridesmaid dress.
“This past weekend my mom, my bridesmaids and I went to pick out the bridesmaid dresses. We allotted about two hours thinking this would be a long and hard process but were in and out in about an hour. ”
“The key was advance planning. My mom and I went ahead of time and picked out the different options we liked. I tried some on and sent pictures of them to the girls ahead of time. Going into the store Saturday, we already had it narrowed down to two dresses. ”
I honestly feel like it was a story instead of it giving information about bridesmaids dresses it was talking about the writers experience.
My last article was from BBC
and it was called Why are zombies still so popular.
Yes, I know it has nothing to do with fashion but I wanted to entertain you guys for this last article. This article was about zombies is no longer a fad.”Just when you think they’re finished, they get up again and shamble towards you. It’s a truism that applies to zombies − everyone’s favorite decomposing, man-eating fiends − but it’s also true of the zombie films, television series, books and graphic novels that are being devoured by ever greater audiences, long after the fad for this particular breed of undead monster seemed to be heading for the grave.””It’s now more than a decade since zombies began their relentless shuffle into the mainstream of popular culture. In Danny Boyle’s 2002 hit 28 Days Later the mindless cannibals weren’t called zombies − they were simply ‘the infected’ − but they were close enough to remind the film industry that there was money to be made from the dormant horror sub-genre. Two years later saw the release of both a frenetic zombie action movie, Dawn Of The Dead , and a ground-breaking zombie romantic comedy (or zom-rom-com), Shaun Of The Dead both critical and commercial smashes. Since then, the films have kept lurching onto the silver screen, from 28 Weeks Later (2007) to Zombieland (2009) to Cockneys vs Zombies (2012).”This article was very interesting and had a lot of details about how the movement of zombies in books, movies, video-games, and TV. I feel like everything they stated in the article was some what true. For this article I don’t really have a critique. It was a good read and I really enjoyed it and you will too!
