There is no place like New York. The city immortalized in a million movies, books, and Instagram stories exists on its own wavelength. In attempting to describe this singular place, one inevitably returns to well-worn lines, but 2020 introduced a chilling new narrative.
This spring, the city was brought to a standstill; its vibrancy dulled by shuttered businesses, empty restaurants, vacant museums, and unoccupied streets. The headlines were foreboding, with some declaring that New York was “over.” But a place built on resilience was surely destined to survive.
New York isn’t a landmark or zip code, a coterie of cool people, an art movement, or a moment in time. It is the millions of New Yorkers who give the city its magic. As communities slowly rebuild, Vogue wanted to celebrate everything—and everyone—that makes New York…New York.
The resulting film, directed by Bardia Zeinali, captures a few of our favorite locals in action: American Ballet Theatre’s Misty Copeland pirouetting across Sixth Avenue, musician David Byrne pedaling through the city streets in a tartan kilt, and actor Julia Fox and model Paloma Elsesser slamming on the hood of a taxicab.
“These days, this year, I have still loved New York,” says Whoopi Goldberg, reading a script by playwright Jeremy O. Harris. “I love New York—because New York loves me.”
A group of students from Oceanside High in New York got a surprise guest at their senior prom this week. Bella Hadid took some time out of her busy schedule to crash the festivities as some of the students celebrated their prom on a party bus. In snaps shared to social media on Monday the model is pictured posing with the teens who are all sporting their glitzy formal wear.
The LA native apparently was on her way to the airport to catch a flight to Germany when she stumbled upon the busload of teens probably getting ready to sing along to “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” by Green Day in a school gymnasium.
‘BELLA HADID IS ON MY SCHOOLS PROM BUS I CANT STOP LAUGHING,’ wrote a user named Jackie. ‘For the people that don’t believe me bella hadid is on some of my friends party bus for prom‘ she added alongside photos of Bella mingling with the prom-goers. ‘Why is Bella hadid in my town?and at prom?‘ came a tweet from another student.
During the day the catwalk beauty was seen on a photo shoot in Long Beach, New York which is near where Oceanside High is situated.
