Independent: Buffy at 25: Joss Whedon may have tainted the show’s legacy – but us fans have made the series our own
As a teen, I binge-watched Buffy on VHS sets resplendent with gothic fonts and smouldering cast portraits. Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy, clutched a stake that coordinated perfectly with her honeyed highlights. David Boreanaz’s Angel – a vampire with soul and perfect cheekbones – gazed lustfully out from the margins, alongside Buffy’s geekier friends Willow (Alyson Hannigan) and Xander (Nicholas Brendon), and father figure Giles (Anthony Stewart Head). Weekends would be swallowed whole by new Buffy boxsets; I’d be sitting in the dark probing over every quip, kill, and monstrous metaphor for young womanhood. As a chubby Black adolescent, I found that representation that outwardly reflected my lived experience was thin on the ground. But somehow Buffy, a Californian blonde and designated saviour of mankind, moved through the world with familiar alienation.
Harper’s Bazaar: The Quiet Radical Feminism of Buffy
Today, Buffy the Vampire Slayer turns 25. This means two things. One, I am officially old, and two, this is a ripe time to look back at the legacy of this cult show. Twenty-five years on, Buffy is much more than disgraced show-runners (more on which later) or even the resurgence of its distinctive nineties fashion. This is a show which utterly redefined the way we view female-led drama and foregrounded a feminism which was remarkably nuanced and subtly game-changing.
Today: ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ was more than a TV show. It changed my life
When “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” premiered in the spring of 1997 as a midseason replacement on a fledgling network with a talking frog as its mascot, few predicted it would make it to a season two, let alone seven seasons and 144 episodes. Certainly even fewer predicted that it would become the cultural phenomenon that it is today, with a still-beating heart 25 years later. And yet!
Vogue: Buffy Fashion 25 Years Later
If you’ve never watched the entire masterful series of Buff the Vampire Slayer, which turns 25 today, you’re seriously missing out. Not only do we have Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) kicking some serious vampire butt, but the high school teenager – who’s mysteriously gifted with superhuman strength to fight the undead – does so in style. She’ll drive stakes through the hearts of her fanged enemies while wearing badass leather pants, sleek camis, and butt-kicking angle boots. As each of the seven seasons progress, Buffy’s heroic fashion only gets better, thanks t costume designer Cynthia Bergstrom. More than two decades later, we still see outfits that feel totally Buffy, both on the runaways and street style stars.
