We’re all guilty of snapping a shot here or there when our friend’s aren’t looking with a quick kiss to the camera or duck face to prove how much better your night is than everyone else’s, but this time ELLE Poland has brought the term ‘selfie’ to the tip of their fashion accessories by dedicated an entire magazine issue to the ‘selfie.’ Not only has the selfie made its way to conquer women across the world, it also made it’s way into the Oxford Dictionary as word of the year in 2013!
Not only has snapchat caused confused looks as you see people making wacky facial expressions at their cell phones, but #instagram’s purpose for users to upload images of #foodporn, now as girls get ready with their friends for a crazy girls’ night out they can see how many likes they can get with a single #selfie or two before the night becomes a blur of partying, chaos, and midnight adventures. The fashion industry has been all over this hot trend from Anna Wintour to Victoria Secret model Candace, and celebrities across the globe which is why were all wondering how this trend has not influenced a fashion magazine to dedicate an issue to this vain phenomenon sooner!
The selfie editorial magazine issue by Elle Poland features Patrycja Gardygajlo, Marta Makaj, Emilia Nawarecka, Zuzanna Bijoch, Maria Loks, and Maja Salamon. The urban tone was styled by Ina Lekiewicz and Agata Pospieszynska took the photographs that have certainly captured the infamous modern-ridden SoHo look that we all envy with a high fashion twist. The #selfie ranks as one of the top social movements and definitely a CHIC way to end a successful year!
