Style Icons: Angel & Edward

Seems like we needed to extend the post about hip and trendy “Vampires,” so here’s a little more (just in case you haven’t had your fill…

Edward Cullen

Yes, the CULLEN. Even if you’re sick of seeing his face around everywhere, you’ve gotta admit, the character does have style. At least he’s the anti-thesis of The Jersey Shore boys…

Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer  

Ah Angel. We will never forget you. In the 90s most young teens were in love with him, so that means the boys tried to emulate him. He had the tough boy appeal–dressed all in black, long trench coats (I mean, he was a vampire…), and a hint of a white tee shirt.

So What’s the deal with Angel? I don’t remember him.

Well…”Angel (formerly Angelus, previously Liam) is a fictional character created by Joss Whedon and David Greenwalt for the television programs Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. He is played by actor David Boreanaz. Angel is a 242 year old vampire who is cursed with a soul, a punishment designed to make him suffer for his past crimes committed under the name Angelus. Like many characters in the Buffyverse, Angel goes through drastic changes. He starts out as a reluctant hero who stayed in the shadows, and ended up a dark, flawed, yet altruistic champion of mankind, seeking to voluntarily atone for his sins. In addition to the two television series, the character appears in the comic book continuations of both series.”
