To celebrate Fashion’s Night Out, Barneys New York have asked Brooklyn artist Andrew Yang to create dolls resembling Vogue editors Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington. These one-of-a-kind dolls took two weeks to make because the materials used came from all over and needed a bit of tweaking to get the two editors’ looks just right.
“I had to special-order Anna’s wig and cut it myself to get the bob right,” Mr. Yang says. “And Grace’s hair was the right color, but it needed a perm.” Alas, the question on everyone’s lips – What are they wearing? – has a disappointingly democratic answer. “The outfits are my own take on their signature looks,” he says. “It would have been unfair to single out specific designers.”
Both dolls will be auctioned off starting August 31st with proceeds going directly to the New York City Aids Fund.
