I’d like to say that I love a good pun just as much as the next guy but I’m actually pretty sure that I love it more. This, of course, makes my having found Vaguely Important People, a Tumblr that chronicles puns born most predominantly from the names of famous fashion folk, considerably more exciting.
Figure a woman like Anna Wintour. Has no one ever thought that maybe, just maybe, she’s been popularly regarded as something of an ice queen because her last name is a misspelled season that denotes frigid temperatures?
Or Karl Lagerfeld. At his core, he’s a builder. The alpha builder. But not just that — he cuts shit down the way Joan Didion tears through societal norms and then builds it right back up in a way that is sartorially smarter, artfully cleaner, and downright more tasteful than it had been before. This makes sense considering the uncanny similarity his name boasts when considering, you know, a logger.
And as for Jane Birkin?
Ugh. No wonder!
Head over to Tumblr and enjoy the images at your own disclosure. They are pretttttttay good.
