In honor of Woodstock's 40th anniversary and the new movie Taking Woodstock, I asked you to pretend we're going to a modern-day version. The hippie vibe will remain, only updated. I suggested denim cutoffs, cool sandals, tie-dye, etc. The more flamboyant the better!
In honor of Woodstock's 40th anniversary and the new movie Taking Woodstock, let's pretend we're going to a modern-day version. I wish! The hippie vibe will remain, only updated. Think denim cutoffs, cool sandals, tie-dye, etc. The more flamboyant the better!

I remember drawing them on my notebook during the first Gulf War and not really knowing what they meant — and now the peace sign is turning the big 5-0. The famous symbol made its first official public appearance in 1958 to advocate nuclear disarmament, and has since been used to graphically support a range of efforts from economic justice to environmentalism. Nearly every altruistic group has used this iconic logo as a way to communicate the idea of universal brotherhood.
The designer of the symbol, Gerald Holtom, created the logo while in a big funk. He explains the symbol: “I was in despair. Deep despair. I drew myself: the representative of an individual in despair, with hands palm outstretched outwards and downwards . . .” (I never saw that until I read this, but now it makes sense!) Holtom died in 1985, and some say if he had lived this long, he might really understand the true meaning of the word “despair."
How has a simple symbol morphed from a cry for help to a price tag? To see how, read more
Each time I see America, she gets more and more gorgeous and glam. I have to give it up to the actress for looking so down to earth at MTV's TRL because so many stars dress tacky on the show. Her Zooey Peace Sign t-shirt is fashionable and philanthropic, and I love how her wide legs cover her shoes — raver style! I threw in a couple of silver accessories for a shiny finish.
