The Sophisticated Woman by Issie Carey

THESOPHISTICATEDWOMAN Years ago, I can reminisce on an autumn afternoon when the crunchy, fire­-maroon fallen leaves blanketed the dewy grass. Just about every kid paraded the neighborhood, running aimlessly, chanting securely, relishing the most glorious day of the year. Upon gazing out the window, captivated by the world beyond the mosquito screen, I felt a stinging itch and was miserably reminded of the red spots stifling my arm. One child was not outside... they were ill­fated with the chicken pox. That child was me. Pining my 7­-year-­old-­calamine-­lotion-­smothered-­self downstairs, I reclined in the TV room to watch a VHS my mother put in for me. It was some old movie called Sabrina. My sulking spirits were slightly enlightened when the most beautiful woman in the world appeared on screen. No, beautiful was not the right word to describe her. It was not enough. I tied myself up in knots. Confined inside my developing brain, I ventured to gather up any word my 2nd grade vocabulary could muster to describe this woman and none of them suited her well enough. I watched the movie, still dumbfounded by her grace and breathtaking facial features. I concluded that such a human ­being was indefinable. That is until, in her European accent, which was almost as prepossessing as she was, she sputtered, “I shall be the most sophisticated woman at the Glen Cove station.” Sophisticated. That was the word. I did not understand the meaning of it, but I knew that the woman on the screen was it. It was a nice ­sounding, complex, and dignified word. As for the woman, I found out later on that her name [in real life] was Audrey Hepburn. “What does suh­fist­o­cate mean?” my sick voice rasped to my mother, later that day. ”You mean sophisticated?” She replied enthusiastically. I can only imagine how ecstatic she must have been. The mothers of all my childhood friends let them watch cartoons when they were sick, but mine was always promoting selections like Gone With the Wind or The Sound of Music. I always thought the costumes were pretty, so I didn’t mind. “Sophisticated means elegant and poised.” I had not the slightest idea what ‘elegant’ or ‘poised’ meant. I presume most children would have continued asking until they fully understood, but I was far too proud and stubborn of a child. Instead, I wandered into her office about an hour after. Using the ladder I had built of encyclopedias and [in all likelihood] important folders on top of the spinning computer chair, my pox infected arm finally reach the tattered Webster’s Dictionary. I believe the dictionary was a new concept I had learned in school at the time and I recall that it took ice a ­ ges to find sophisticated. Luckily, that was the one definition that made sense to a curious 7-­y ear-­o ld with undiagnosed ADHD:

32


“SOPHISTICATED: HAVING OR SHOWING A LOT OF EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE WORLD.” Within the next few weeks, I’m almost positive that the value of the term sophisticated began meaning absolutely nothing to my teachers, family, and peers because I most likely incorporated it into every single paper I wrote and every sentence I spoke. Interesting enough, it was on account of Audrey Hepburn and one of her lines in a silly movie. There are always these scant tidbits of our childhoods that stand out to us. I remember every vivid detail about the two awful weeks when I had the chicken pox. The memory may be sentimental to me furthermore because Sabrina was the first Audrey Hepburn film that I ever saw. As I grew older, all of her films remained with me like tattoos. From then on, while gaping at her angelic divinity on screen, I inherently characterized her as sophisticated. Sophisticated was not the only word that I overused as a kid, I absorbed new meanings like a styrofoam ‘noodle’ absorbing chlorinated water in a swimming pool, but it is one of the few I remember. It’s coincidentally advantageous, considering that it’s the theme for the one­-year­ anniversary issue of Lucy’s Magazine. If you have not seen the 1954 motion picture, Sabrina, it’s storyline is rather elementary. The heroine, (Hepburn) commences, peering in from behind a tree, as an insecure ‘nobody’, loving David (William Holden) who barely knows she exists. She leaves her uneventful life as a chauffeur’s daughter to attend cooking school in the enchanting city of Paris. Upon returning, she has completely ‘transformed into a lady of fashion and charm’, according to the box on the VHS copy, which I still own. She becomes the most desirable woman in her hometown, winning David over. The plot has been adapted under various titles and formats. Even if you are unfamiliar with Sabrina, that description likely reminded you of a similar story. At the age of seven, given that I wore pajamas to school and my knotted hair was styled in pigtails most days, I was imperceptive in realizing that Sabrina’s transformation is signified mainly through style and the wardrobe, provided by Hubert De Givenchy. In the beginning, she shyly emerges, awkward bangs framing her Bambi eyes. The excess of her hair is tied back with a childish ribbon. As she unquestionably is ‘the most sophisticated woman at Glen Cove station’, she gazes off into the distance, her confident chin up, modish pearls perched on her earlobes. Her dark locks have been cut and styled into the popular pixie do, accessorized by a white hat, which contrasts magnificently with a two­piece dark tailored suit and petite black heels that Miss Hepburn’s lean build pulls off miraculously. In 1953, Hepburn spawned a friendship with Givenchy, lasting until her death

33

in 1993. Expecting “Movie Actress Miss Hepburn”, Givenchy originally thought that it was the glamorously fierce Miss Katharine Hepburn who wished to meet him. It was bewildering when a fresh f­aced, delightful beauty in an effortless tee shirt and capri pants, who was evidently not Katharine Hepburn approached him. Caught off guard, Givenchy was beguiled by the impish loveliness encompassed in this woman from the gondolier’s hat resting on her head all the way down to the ballet flats supporting her feet. He was taken further aback when she introduced herself in eloquent French, signifying why she was cast to be ‘the most Sophisticated woman at Glen Cove station’ and Givenchy’s muse in the years to come. What visions are propelled by the alone concept of sophistication? Perhaps a leading lady immortalized by timeless fashion comes to mind. During Hollywood’s Golden Age, Audrey Hepburn and Katharine Hepburn were not the only actresses at the top of their game. Other icons, such as Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, and just about every memorable actress at the time massively influenced culture, painting the foundational portrait of sophistication. The charisma, poise, and elegance personified in these women intrigued designers. As the origins of their fascinating lives and the depth to the on­ screen characters they portrayed began to impel society, a sense of unity was created amongst inventors. These were not the inventors who contributed to the creation of vaccines, nor were they responsible for the sound quality in MGM Studio Pictures. These inventors contributed to the creation of characters and icons. The quality of their artwork transformed young starlets into movie stars. These inventors were universally referred to as fashion designers and their inventions profoundly displayed knowledge and experience in more ways than one. Much like Hubert De Givenchy’s fashions playing an integral role in the title character’s development in Sabrina, designers found themselves to be at the right place at the right time. The place was Hollywood and it

The Sophisticated Woman by Issie Carey

this shift in fashion, sophistication was less opinion based. Typically it was marked by a certain degree of wealth, demure, and elegance, as everyone thought that the general population wanted to see. As originality came into play, the perception of general population was diversified and style was revolutionized... reinvented... reinvented through one’s attempt to express themselves. Woodstock was an event organized by and composed of people who wanted to express themselves through scheduling, music, and overall by making a statement about world peace to showcase their understanding, experience, and knowledge of the world. Self­-expression is crucial in encompassing sophistication. Without one’s ability to express themselves, their sophistication would go unacknowledged. Self­ expression is passion. Self­expression is art. Self­-expression is fashion. Self­-expression is extremely common in this day and age.

was at a time when everyone wanted to channel their inner sophistication. In a message to her father, Miss Hepburn’s character in Sabrina reveals the roots of her sophistication: “I have learned how to live, how to be IN the world and OF the world, and not just to stand aside and watch.” This letter is crucial in establishing Sabrina’s transformation, yet it furthermore foreshadows the years to come: at the peak of the 1960’s, many decided that they would not just stand aside and watch any longer. A new era emerged: Revolution, exemplified through the “Rock n’ Roll” lifestyle, promoted by new icons. David Bowie was influential in music and fashion trends, as were rock bands, like The Beatles and those influenced by them. The delivery of their style in the entertainment industry through the mainstream altered the quintessence of sophistication, offering the characteristic in a different light. Their dynamic was explicit through their technique and work, fueling consciousness of individualism and ardor for freedom of self­-expression. As a repercussion of revolutionizing culture, fashion changed forever. Pants became tighter, skirts became shorter, and necklines became lower. Prior to

“I HAVE LEARNED HOW TO LIVE, HOW TO BE IN THE WORLD AND OF THE WORLD, AND NOT JUST TO STAND ASIDE AND WATCH.” Movements in fashion history, triggered by cultural components have taken a spontaneous turn. Fast forwarding from Woodstock in 1969 to modern technology in 2015, let’s examine what we use to express ourselves to the public eye: the internet. As I gaze into my computer, typing this article to express my thoughts, facebook statuses are updated, opinions are tweeted, photos are shared on instagram, and above all, people are using the power of the internet to both express their knowledge and share their experience. Although there is severe controversy lying within the realm of the internet’s effect on civilization and industries, as the ultimate revolution, it has given everyone the chance to express themselves in a sophisticated manner: it enables us all to present our experience and knowledge as freely as we desire. In our modern day, at the peak of technology and the internet, we potentially have access to the cliff notes of our entirety at our fingertips ­literally at our fingertips. We are respectively able to find the answers to virtually anything we could ever want to know about the world just by typing the keywords of our questions into a search engine. In addition to easily providing ourselves with instant knowledge, the internet allows everyone who is interested in fashion to share their knowledge about the industry and work in pursuit of that knowledge. Lucy’s magazine is a marvelous example. This issue marks the 1 year anniversary of Lucy’s first publication. Since then, the magazine has grown to be present on an international level. Each issue is rich in dedicated wardrobe stylists, innovative photographers, intriguing models, and cosmetic wizards who use makeup brushes and hair­styling instruments like magical wands. The superb creative synergy involved in composing each issue is

34


recognized by the readers of the magazine and has been stimulated through the power of promotion via the internet. The understanding of the world that these contributors possess is showcased through social media, the websites of the individuals involved, and all other forms of online networking. Lucy’s Magazine itself is sophisticated in that manner. In this issue particularly, the professionals involved channel their sophistication into their editorial work and unobtrusively reinvent the looks of the past and former timeless speculations of the theme. Referencing my personal narrative, both the visual definition of sophisticated [provided by Miss Hepburn] and the literal definition of the word [provided by my mother and the dictionary] are viable in determining the value of the term. Through the convenience of formatting [in Lucy’s Magazine], each retelling is showcased [on each page] back­-to­-back to truly elaborate on the expansive spectrum that determines what sophisticated means. Reinvention is an utmost contribution to the compelling nature of fashion. Reinvention advocates for the vast and rich sense of optimism within the industry. Creative individuals want nothing more than to use their knowledge and personal experiences to inspire and draw a reaction from others. At a time, they were once that ‘other’, who was inspired by a different innovator before them. Currently, they are still being guided and inspired by another source. Like Hepburn becoming the muse of Hubert De Givenchy, every artist has a muse and every muse evolved somewhere. From a bird’s eye view, the process of reinvention is that everything new is influenced by everything old... everything old is influenced by everything older, and so on. I suppose it could be said that all of life is reinvention; building on the old to create the new. Although revolution and reinvention have dawned the perception of sophistication in another hue, sophistication continues to have a mutual effect on both those embodying it and those acknowledging it; A sophisticated being presents their knowledge and experience, therefore sharing their understanding to those who see it. One’s sophisticated manner is channelled through a degree of poise that implies their knowledge and the ultimate factor which determines the validity of their poise is decided by everyone else. In spite of the general dynamic patterns of the fashion industry, the factor of sophistication has maintained its place in determining the quality of fashion. 2015 will be another year of sophisticated progression through reinvention. Upon the publication of this issue, Lucy’s Magazine has spent months accumulating images which best typify sophistication. Within that same time frame, the artists featured in this issue have collaborated to organize shoots with the objective of capturing a sophisticated environment. Every element going into this issue is based around the term sophisticated. What impressed me about the

35

selection of images tastefully hand­ picked is the fact that Lucy’s 13th issue does not consist of any definitive palette, article of clothing, or style. Each story accommodates it’s own valid manifestation of sophistication. The expressions of various artists from all over the globe are exhibited purely to present readers with their experience, knowledge, and personal portrayal of the sophisticated. In order for one to understand this meaning, they must depart from their comfort zone. They must “learn how to live, how to be IN the world and OF the world, and not just to stand aside and watch.” Like Sabrina leaving home to learn about the culinary arts, they must allow the world to change them to undergo transformation. They must absorb what the world has to offer with the bubbling curiosity I held as a seven year old, flipping through the old dictionary which weighed more than I did. Each page of Lucy’s Magazine, cover to cover, underscores these attributes in featuring and promoting variations of ‘the sophisticated’. Looking through the pages of this issue, whether it be flipping through them in your lap or coming across them on the magazine’s website, you will meet a combination of copious portrayals of the sophisticated woman. On some pages, she is wearing a bright magenta, fluffy coat, surrounded by what seems to be a gold­ trimmed background. On other pages, she stands in front of a white wall. wearing all white, her self-­assured connection with the camera contradicting the color of white as a symbol of innocence or inexperience. In between, you may encounter a brunette with cornrows in her hair or a blonde sitting in her first class living room. If each of these women were to stand together at Glen Cove station, not one could be deemed more sophisticated than the other: for these women were exquisitely selected to tell discrete, formalistic, narratives through the lens of divergent artists who strive to unleash sophistication to those aspiring to inspire.

HUMAN CREATION by Tony Cruz

HUMAN CREATION WE

all contain a true super power. We have the one thing other animals do not: The ability to create, and not just for the purpose of continuing existence. As well as, the ability to express both logically and emotionally simultaneously. We act on our thoughts and that is what has lead to the reality we are in today. We follow the creative process and have, over due time, made it simplified. To take an idea, an image, a vision and make it into something tangible is simply amazing. Think of everything you interact with that is the product of another mind. The list would be nearly endless and would only pause for a moment at these very pages. Whether you take these moments for granted or count your swallows before summer, they are still there. These moments are made from products of thoughts that you can enjoy, destroy, provoke, utilize, or ignore. And every single one of them is certainly interesting. The one personal product we strive for and the one we all find beauty in is one of sophistication. In the artistic avenue of fashion, designing is arguably the foundation for the arts that stand atop. After, of course, the human body. Sophisticated designers are those who are, not only socially adept, but are also of intelligence regarding their trade. Through the words of the miss Chanel herself, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” Chanel put her grandest of thoughts into fashion and has achieved an aspect

86


of immortality through her work. She used, to the best of her abilities, her skill and knowledge along with her social awareness to please every individual who wore her creations. Not very many products of thought have been created that encompass this purity in expression, a purity that the L.B.D. does, with ever lasting simplicity. Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel’s whole life, frankly, would have been quite a sad one had she not realized, at a young age even, that she possessed an exquisite talent with clothe and needle. Sewing and singing were her souls’ escape, an escape into reality. Thus placing her gentle force of herself upon others, distinguishing her from all. She showcased not only her small thoughts and ponders, but also her ability to take action. Rising from an underprivileged child, to an aspiring performer, Chanel was definitely going somewhere. Perhaps it was the pressures of relationships that quieted her voice or perhaps it was simply how the verb was inevitably going to change. Her action was now aspects of fashion. Through a gradual progression from hats, to boutique owner, to elite couturiere, her fame grew as systematically as her creations and additions to the world of fashion were. Her respect amongst the elite however, did not sway how she designed. Her clothing kept in mind movement, and above all else practicality, in a time where pompousness was norm. The Chanel suit, for instance, was designed to be worn and enjoyed with the Chanel lifestyle: the lifestyle of a strong individual, who is a subservient woman to none. This strong image of an individual is what made her focus as a designer spot on. She did not dream of how she wanted a person to be changed to fit an idea. She made an idea of clothing that utilized the beauty in what is natural. Anyone can build a bridge with a million logs but the one who can build a bridge with a single log can build a million bridges. With Chanel’s life and influences in mind she designed one piece that is a true icon: the Little Black Dress.

87

Little means simple. Simple in cutting out the fluff and taking away the unnecessary. An idea that has locked the L.B.D. into fashion for generations. The same idea making the use of otherwise uncommon fabrics an obvious; made capable even in times of frugality. Little, as a social triumph and a logical one. Black is the back drop for the planets, solar systems, universe, and stars. Every color pops out of black. Black leaves everything else up to be appreciated. In the aspect of mood, black was nearly only worn for recently widowed women. Perhaps this being an expression of Chanel’s past and her thoughts of strong individual characters (through experience). Black, as a choice in her design, is both logical for her purpose and yet, deeply emotional in impact. The L.B.D. is an achievement of intense social awareness and intelligence in the art of designing. It is a creation from an individual who flexed her power and made an edition to her reality, the reality of others around her, and now, in the reality of us who live in the future. Her dress expresses to the individual her want for them to enjoy life and utilize their own personal strengths to be beautiful. Being a woman herself, she wanted others to be sophisticated in something as simple as a Little Black Dress. We all contain a true super power. We all use this power every time we make anything that conveys our thought(s). However, to utilize this super power to it’s maximum potential, one must realize it takes knowledge and experience. Both of which come, not only with time, but focus, to produce something of sophistication. Simply having ownership of these two qualities is a complete waste, of nothing but theory, if not expressed. And expression is simply an action. Action is what adds to reality.
