Fashion Designers + Sesame Street = Great Editorial!

Oh I am so in love with this editorial spread in September's Harper's Bazaar! To pay tribute to 40 years of good ol' Sesame Street, Bazaar paired some of it's famous residents with top fashion designers. Come on, who doesn't love Oscar the Grouch paired with Oscar de la Renta?!?! Love!

Big Bird and Diane Von Furstenberg

Vera Wang and Abby Cadabby

Derek Lam and Thakoon Panichgul with Bert and Ernie

Francisco Costa and Grover

Carolina Herrera and Elmo

Kate and Laura Mulleavy (Rodarte) with Cookie Monster

Oscar the Grouch and Oscar de la Renta

Great job Bazaar! I have a great back story book about Sesame Street that I got 10 years ago called Sesame Street Unpaved it's completely fascinating!
My friend Junius and Pippi Take the Cake did a blog post about her five favorite recent Sesame Street clips and they are great! Check it out here.
This post was brought to you by the letter A and the number 7.

  1. Love those layouts -- and what a fun surprise at the end of your post (thanks for the blog love)! There's another book called "Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street." Haven't read it, but heard an interview with the author that was very interesting -- plus the clever title cracks me up.

  2. I agree, this was fabulous fun. Sesame is important to us all no matter what style, color, income, occupation we herald from. Carolina H. + Elmo, who can't embrace that?!


Thanks for stopping by, I love hearing from you!
