The eyes have it! The necks, not so much…
Everything that’s old becomes new again… even in celebrityÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â photography.
Look no further than George Clooney on March’s issue of Esquire and “The Artist” actor Jean Dujardin on last month’s issueÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â GQ Russia. A great way to highlight an actor’s eyes, yes. (And perhaps a cold sore if necessary!)
But the trend, recently coinedÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â online as ‘turtling’ – is not a new one… in fact, the iconic James Dean was mugging with half his face (and without the turtleneck) more than fifty years ago. There he is on the right in a photo taken in 1955 by Phil Stern.
Wheel in the sky keep on turnin. So do the trends.
