Via The Cut, I discovered a small tidbit from GQ's Will Welch about how the transformation of street style resembles that of reality television. According to Welch, what was once supposed to express snippets of everyday life- be it the way a regular person styles their skinnies or what they wear when they run to the grocery store- street style has become just another overly-hyped and trendy means of attaining one's 15 minutes of fame. Claiming street style has suffered from "its own popularity," Welch and The Cut purport that fashion is now onto the next big thing.
