Truth or Dare // Sophomore

We have to admit, when Sophomore’s Chrissie Miller first told us about her brand-new video lookbook for Spring/Summer ’11, the project read like a list of a few of our favorite things: Cass Bird (the photographer), Madonna’s Truth or Dare (the inspiration), slouchy-sexy tees (the collection). Need we say more?

Take a peek at the vérité-style clip—we dare you!—and try to separate fact from fiction as several of downtown’s most recognizable faces (we see you, James Ransone from The Wire, writer Lesley Arfin, Chanel ambassador Jen Brill, Drea de Matteo of The Sopranos, and Chloe Sevigny) tackle an all-night session of spilling secrets. We blame the divine Ms Bird, a photographer and director known for her utterly contemporary eye. As Miller explains, Bird “always creates an amazing environment when shooting. She is great at making people feel comfortable and gets them talking!”
