Who Wore It Best: The Artist as J. Crew Model


Yes, we’ve heard some disgruntled rumblings about the fact that J. Crew only used male artists in “Life Imitates Art” feature in their October catalog. Point taken. Nevertheless we think it’s fantastic fun when two worlds collide, and as ArtsBeat notes, there are several generations of talent represent here ranging from Julien Smith and Chris Dorland to Ryan McGinness and Glenn Ligon to Stephen Shore, Billy Sullivan, and Vito Acconci. Hopefully the guys on the more emerging end of the spectrum will get some good publicity out of it. After the jump, rate the “models” and place a vote for who you think pulls off the J. Crew look the best.
