Some pictures of The world of super heroes ball a vogue ball organised by François Chaignaud and Cecilia Bengolea at la Ménagerie de verre.
Back in the nineties last night at La Ménagerie de verre when i was wearing flashy outfits influenced by house music and the voguing.
But everything partially started in the seventies in the ballrooms of New York city among Afro-American, Hispanic, gays, lesbians, and transgender communities.
Of course the genre was popularized by Madonna’s song « Vogue » in 1990, but it is interesting to find the influence of voguing from artists such as Prince or even Siouxsie (i remember her strike the pose during live shows) at the nineties. It’s also easy to imagine a designer like Jean Paul Gaultier being more or less a part of this community.
