NEW YORK ANNOUNCEMENT


Hey everyone! Some of you may have already heard that I'm heading to New York on Wednesday the 16th for an entire week in the big apple. The official BEBE ZEVA documentary, filmed and produced by lit, art, and performance icons Tao Lin and Megan Boyle, will be premiered at the Soho House in Manhattan on March 20th. The documentary and venue have been described as follows:

Legendary Children, an event series that highlights the work of emerging filmmakers, announces the premiere of the documentary Bebe Zeva at the Soho House on Sunday, March 20. The documentary, which revolves around the eponymous 17-year-old fashion blogger, marks the acclaimed novelist’s first foray into filmmaking with his wife Megan Boyle.

Working with a minimalist, low-budget aesthetic (Lin shot the film with his Macbook Pro) Bebe Zeva charts one night with the young blogger, as she talks with Lin and Boyle about her life while showing them around Las Vegas. The simple, utilitarian storytelling set against the absurd, over-the-top backdrop of Vegas calls to mind the similar tone of Lin’s books, such as Shoplifting From American Apparel and Richard Yates. Lin’s body of work (two novels, a novella, a short story collection and two books of poetry) have earned him a cult following and pegged him as one of the most influential young writers working today.Bebe Zeva provides an opportunity to see his literary aesthetic translated into the world of cinema.

Zeva is something of a fashion blogger prodigy–by age 17 she has already been featured in Seventeen and Teen Vogue and was recently a panelist at the WWD Magic trade show. Her online following–across Twitter, Tumblr, Formspring, and her personal blog “Fated to be Hated”–is enormous and enthusiastic.

If you're interested in viewing the documentary, pre-order it at http://mdmafilms.org!

NOW PRESENTING THE OUTFIT I WORE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE FILM






FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:
Scarf- Anthropologie
Velvet blazer- Ralph Lauren
Dress- American Apparel
Kitten pumps- Vintage Salvatore Ferragamo

Looking back on the outfit, I can't understand why I wasn't wearing a hat and thigh-highs. Brown floppy hat and navy tights would have worked perfectly. UGH. YA LIVE AND YA LEARN.


These are my shoes. They are filthy with whipped cream. Please refer to the documentary for more details.

Lastly, if you can provide any advice on what I should see, where I should dine, and how to get the best bargains when shopping, please feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email! I also need YOUR help on picking out the right outfits since this is my first foray into the city. I have no idea what to expect and am going to need a great deal of support from my readers! You're the entire reason that so many incredible things have been happening to me lately. The positivity and encouragement is what keeps me driven to pursue my goals. AND on that note- Happy Birthday to my baby blog, which officially turns 5 months old today. :)

Everything is infinite,

Bebe Zeva

  6. Oh Bebe, I love this outfit... And I adore your style! I wish the documentary was available in some form where I live because I'd love to see it but I guess I just have to wait for that.

    About NY... if you have the time, maybe you want to check out my latest post where I talk about a few wonderful boutiques and there are two places that I mention and are in NY! I just started blogging and I'm not sure if I'm any good, but I hope you like it.

  11. Omg this is amazing and I am massively jealous of you! Mostly because of the trip to New York since I would be too scared to have a whole documentary on myself! but I am so pleased for you that you had the opportunity and I'm itching to see it, unfortunately I live in the UK but I might have to order myself a copy :)
