i made a bet last summer with someone about who would have a better career..the virgins or vampire weekend.
those douchey mcsweaterwearers may have been on SNL and endorsed by pitchfork (pfft) but donald, wade & co. have been in purple, the new vogue hommes and, ahem, T magazine (totes like NINE months ago dudes! catch up!). as far as whitelighnin' be concerned, this is a much better stamp of approval, record sales be damned. (and you know what? the record isn't out yet so i am waiting for those numbers)
here are some scans from the vogue story. shot by terry richardson and styled by beat bolliger (sigh sigh sigh, be still my heart!)
dang i love that donald.
