Cindy Sherman, Untitled, 1983.

One of the most anti-glamorous photographs, Untitled, 1983 features a standing Sherman in a bleach-blonde wig that all but obscures her face. Wears a severe black suit and stands against the wall clenching her fists.

Despite the fact that these works were commissions from magazines and fashion houses, they deliberately eschew the conventions of the genre, instead suggesting Sherman’s love/hate relationship to the female quest for beauty. While French Vogue was not pleased with Sherman’s approach, other fashion designers, including Comme des Garçons, Issey Miyake and Dianne B were enthusiastic about Sherman’s reenactments of their clothes. Their willingness to embrace such efforts to subvert the fashion industry, suggest that fashion can also embrace an attitude of self-mockery.
