When I Say Look, You Say 'Who Bites?'

I'm heavy on the pop culture. If there's such a thing as a target market for anything related to pop culture, I'm probably the person, or the figurative target market they're referring to. I just really like to be 'in the know' with what everyone's thinking. What's the latest must-read book? Who's the latest love team about town? What's the latest score between this person and that person? I guess I'm also naturally chismoso. Knowledge to me is sexy. But smut is definitely sexier. Haha. 

This year, no doubt the award for biggest pop culture phenomenon goes to fang-araffic vampire community. Twilight, Vampire Diaries, and True Blood... oh my! Vampires are fast becoming every Juan's visual and emotional fixation. There's something about this blood-sucking bitches. Is it the Pinoy's predilection for white? Or maybe it's their sensitive, mysterious, bad seed within wanting to come out but because of some virtuous pledge, they sheath with all their might, and for most hormonal media like True Blood, their love. Whatever it is, every Juan is hooked. And so is fashion.

Like it or not, Twilight has been this year’s media sensation. With news of Twilight covering the weekly glossies and easily found on gossip sites, it was no surprise to see the emergence of the vampire in fashion editorials. Interestingly enough, the majority of characters cast maintained a safe contemporary mode of dress that was far from the unorthodox silhouettes and draping expected.

1. Doug Bell and Jullien Herrera strut and pose their way through the pages of Dazed & Confused.

2. Roman Ivancic finds himself a part in Neil Barrett’s take on the Lost Boys.

3. Wound magazines goes for the sex angle with a tantalizing editorial featuring Martin Pichler.
