9 Selfies of the Movers and Shakers of Philly’s Style Scene

Selfies

Some people have made a living taking selfies (cough, Kim Kardashian). Others have made a living doing far more interesting things (chefs, fashion designers, pro-surfers). For our August issue, we reached out to the latter, and persuaded them to give us their best Kim K. The result? Seventy-five selfies, each an intimate peek at the behind-the-scenes lives of Philly notables.

Some selfies were cute (Congressman Bob Brady with his tiny great-granddaughter); some were sexy (um, did you see the cover?); some were not sexy (the Geator in a Speedo); and some were hilarious (Fergie Carey in fur, lamé and sunglasses I actually think I own, too). Below are pics from Philly’s style and shopping scene; check out the entire roundup — including that Geator Speedo — here.

It started as a social-media phenomenon: Grab a friend and your phone, make duck-faces, click and post. Then came the official dictionary definition, and an entire book of photos from Kim Kardashian (titled Selfish, of course). There’s no denying it, folks—we’re living in the Age of the Selfie. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The cameras we carry have turned us all into amateur documentarians, with even the goofiest snapshot exposing how we see ourselves and the rapidly changing world around us. Read more »

Artist Sets Up “Selfie Zones” in Philadelphia

A photo posted by Kid Hazo (@kidhazo) on

Philadelphia street artist Kid Hazo — he of the giant PPA parking ticket and the Claes Oldenburg paint-dollop turned poop emoji — put a few new pieces on the streets this morning: Selfie zones.

Unlike the No Selfie Zone prank by Jena Kingsley, Kid Hazo is actually encouraging people to take them — a fresh change of pace from the anti-selfie propaganda constantly spewed by the media. Read more »

Flyers Goalie Steve Mason Keeps Posting Shirtless Selfies with His Dog

Two days ago, Flyers goalie Steve Mason posted this to his Instagram.

Cute doggy! Also… it’s a shirtless selfie with his dog. Let me go on the record as pro-selfie — and even pro-shirtless selfie! I myself have finagled a way to post two shirtless photos of myself on this very website, so it would be hypocritical of me to come out against it. Plus, shirtless pro athletes are way more exciting to look at shirtless than I am. Post as many shirtless selfies as you want, Steve Mason!

Well, guess what: He has!
