Fashion Flashback: "Rear Window" Revisited

I often wonder what future generations will draw their inspiration from many, many years from now.  I grew up watching Turner Classic Movies, but what will "old" films be considered to people 100 years from now?  I feel like there are certain time periods that keep coming back, whether it's the 1920s, 1950s, 1960s -- this is particularly evident in fashion.  Alfred Hitchcock's work seemingly provides endless fodder for magazine editorial as of late -- Vogue did a Vertigo-inspired photo shoot (I wrote about it here), and Vanity Fair even did a whole Hitchcock portfolio not too long ago.  There was also the release of two Hitchcock-centric films last year (The Girl and Hitchcock).

Model Carolyn Murphy and The Great Gatsby actor Tobey Maguire recreated scenes from 1954's Rear Window for the April issue of Vogue.  I feel like there is something a little too polished in the images, but it's interesting to see the interpretation nonetheless.  I gathered a few stills from the film for side-by-side comparison.
