New York City and Disney World might be located at opposite ends of the country, but last night the two converged on Madison Avenue to unveil Barneys New York's “Electric Holiday” campaign. In celebration of the holidays, Barneys and Disney have collaborated on a short animated film featuring dressed-up versions of their classic characters alongside cartoon versions of some of fashion's most famous figures. “They brought their beloved characters and we brought some beloved real fashion work characters,” Barneys's CEO Mark Lee told The Daily Beast of the collaboration, “It's truly a dream, and is really all about the magic of Disney.”
As a precursor to the premiere, the store had cleared out an entire floor's worth of merchandise and redesigned the space with black wall tapestries and tiny filament lights for an “electric” celebration. An array of fried food was plucked by tailored investors along with glassfuls of punch beleaguered with LED ice cubes instead. On display was the limited edition Disney-themed merchandise that Barneys will hawk in the merry months to come, like mouse ears designed by L'Wren Scott and Rag & Bone.
There are also locked diaries and hooded towels baring neon silhouettes of Daffy Duck and Goofy available for prices far more reasonable than the $1,600 Balenciaga booties retailing three floors above. Looking down, it was clear who these items are intended for—the army of sugar high children who were weaving between older guest's legs with light-up sippy cups in hand. But as the crowd's band of 20-somethings griped, Simon Doonan was in full support of Barneys's family Christmas. “Gay, straight, everybody seems to have kids nowadays,” he told The Daily Beast, “The holidays are not a time to be remote and bitchy, the holidays are a time to be fun and warm and colorful and welcoming.”
A radio announcement signaled that the party was headed outside to witness the night's big reveal. Excited for the premiere, supermodel Crystal Renn explained, “I think fashion is all about being a character and being an individual and Disney is all about individual characters, so then marrying the two together makes a lot of sense.”
It was an Orlando-worthy scene, with enough Proenza Schouler bags and cigarettes to make up for the crowd's lack of fanny packs and turkey legs, respectively. Each guest was provided a pair of light-up mouse ears that were radio controlled by the event's producers—they simultaneously flashed blue as Sarah Jessica Parker, the evening's host, took the stage along with Lee and Disney's CEO Bob Iger, to introduce the film.
Tinkerbell appeared with a wand and fluttered about as the film began to role. Peering down Madison Avenue with the city's skyline and smoke flumes aglow as Mickey Mouse and friends cavorted onscreen in Balmain and Nina Ricci, it seemed as if Disney had just made a serious case for opening a satellite park somewhere close by. The film ended and Minnie Mouse appeared in custom Lanvin. A crack was heard, and glitter exploded overhead, signaling the official start of Barneys's holiday season.

[D] realizing their dream all about the magic of Disney
1. 迪士尼和巴尼斯百货的合作主要是为了_____。
[A] 展示一部动画短片
[B] 展示它们受人喜爱的卡通形象和时尚圈真正的明星大腕
[C] 为巴尼斯百货狂欢促销季揭幕
[D] 实现它们关于迪士尼魔法的梦想
答案:C 难度系数:☆☆☆
分析:细节题。文章第一段就指出迪士尼来到纽约市麦迪逊大街为巴尼斯纽约精品店“电子假日”促销活动揭幕,两个公司合力制作了一部动画短片,该片的特色在于它将迪士尼经典卡通人物形象和时尚圈的明星大腕结合了起来。而且,二者的合作就像一场关于迪士尼魔法的梦。A、B选项是二者合作的方式,不是目的,故可排除。文中虽提到关于迪士尼魔法的梦,但它是用来形容合作庆典的盛大场面的,并不是要实现这样的梦,故D可排除。结合文章,可知主要目的还是为巴尼斯百货狂欢促销季揭幕,所以最佳答案为C。
2. The celebration layout may come as a surprise to many because _____.
[A] it is a precursor to the premiere
[B] of its novel form and luxurious scene
[C] of the limited edition Disney-themed merchandise
[D] Barneys will hawk the merchandise and make lots of money
2. 庆典对很多人来说可能都会是一个惊喜,这是因为_____。
[A] 它是公映前的预热
[B] 它新颖的形式和奢华的场景
[C] 限量版的迪士尼主题的商品
[D] 巴尼斯百货商店将会出售这些商品,并且挣很多钱
答案:B 难度系数:☆☆☆
分析:推理题。从第一段两个公司富有创意的合作,到后面五段着力描绘开幕式现场的奢华和盛大场面,可知这些正是该庆典与众不同、吸引眼球的地方。A、C和D项的说法出自文章第二段,只是对该庆典事实的部分描述,不具有归纳性,可排除。概括来讲,庆典给人们带来的惊喜主要还是其与迪士尼合作的创意和奢华的阵容,所以只有B项最符合题意,故为答案。
3. What does Crystal Renn's “being a character” imply?
[A] The premiere was headed outside for the first time.
[B] Fashion should be fully creative and unique.
[C] Fashion requires teamwork.
[D] Marrying the two together is meaningful for creating great cartoon characters.
3. 克莉丝朵·雷恩说的“要特立独行”暗指什么?
[A] 首映式第一次来到了户外。
[B] 时尚应该是充满了创意且独一无二的。
[C] 时尚需要团队协作。
[D] 对于创造经典的卡通形象来说,让二者结合是有意义的。
答案:B 难度系数:☆☆☆☆
分析:猜词题。该题的关键之处有两点:一是要明白“being a character”这个短语的意思,二是要弄清主语是什么。根据上下文可知,“being a character”在这里指的是“形成一种性格;成为一个人物”,也就是“独特的”的意思。而克莉丝朵·雷恩说的主要与时尚有关,A、D选项说的不是时尚,不符合题意。C选项在文中并未提及。因此,B选项最符合题意,故为答案。
4. The “Orlando-worthy scene” can be best explained as _____.
[A] a creative display of Disney cartoon versions
[B] a feast that many celebrities attended
[C] being filled with bags and cigarettes
[D] a luxurious and magnificent place which is well worth visiting like Orlando
4. “Orlando-worthy scene”的最佳解释为_____。
[A] 迪士尼卡通形象的创意展示
[B] 一场很多名流参加的宴会
[C] 充满了包包和香烟
[D] 一个奢华壮丽的、像奥兰多一样值得一去的地方
答案:D 难度系数:☆☆☆
分析:推理题。该题的关键是要理解“Orlando-worthy scene”的意思。奥兰多(Orlando)是美国人心目中最佳的休闲胜地之一,那里也有大型的迪士尼乐园,可见Orlando-worthy scene指的就是“像奥兰多一样值得一去的地方”。A、B和C选项虽然说法都正确,但只是宴会场景的一部分,只有D选项的解释最贴切,故为答案。
5. The main message of the last paragraph is that _____.
[A] Barneys and Disney succeeded in the cooperation
[B] Madison Avenue has witnessed a perfect premiere
[C] Barneys has hold a successful opening ceremony for its holiday season
[D] the celebration can be called as a creative big performance
5. 最后一段主要是告诉我们_____。
[A] 巴尼斯百货和迪士尼合作成功
[B] 麦迪逊大街见证了一场完美的首映式
[C] 巴尼斯百货成功地举办了促销狂欢季的开幕式
[D] 该庆典堪称是一场富有创意的大型表演
答案:C 难度系数:☆☆
分析:推理题。文章最后一段详细描绘了开幕式的真实场景,进一步渲染了该庆典的盛大场面,宣告了巴尼斯百货狂欢促销季的正式开始。A、B和D选项说法都没有错误,但是两家公司合作和举办开幕式的最终目的还是为了巴尼斯百货的促销狂欢季,所以C选项最符合题意,故为答案。

纽约市和迪士尼乐园虽然位于美国的两端,但昨夜二者却会聚在麦迪逊大街为巴尼斯纽约精品店的“电子假日”促销活动进行揭幕。为了庆祝这一假日,巴尼斯百货和迪士尼合力制作了一部动画短片,该片的特色在于它将迪士尼经典卡通人物形象和一些时尚圈的明星大腕结合了起来。巴尼斯百货的首席执行官马克·李在接受刊物《每日野兽》采访时对此次合作如是说:“迪士尼带来了人们喜爱的卡通人物,我们则带来了一些真正的时尚界宠儿。这真是一场梦,一场真正完全关于迪士尼魔法的梦。”
作为公映前的预热,百货公司清空了整整一层楼的商品,并重新对空间进行了设计,墙面挂着黑色的挂毯,外加点亮的纤细的灯丝,用以营造“电子”庆典的气氛。品味讲究的投资商们在庆典上能吃到各类油炸食物,饮料则是一杯杯四周围着发光小冰块的宾治酒(一种特色混合型饮料,主要成分是果汁)。活动上展示的是限量版的迪士尼主题的商品,巴尼斯百货商店将会在圣诞节来临前的几个月里出售这些商品,如由劳伦·斯科特和瑞格布恩设计的米奇耳朵。
这里还卖带锁的日记本和连帽浴巾,它们上面带有闪亮的达菲鸭和高飞的剪影(达菲鸭又叫“大活鸭”,是一个在乐一通动画系列里出现的一个虚构卡通人物;高飞是米奇忠实的伙伴),这些产品的价位远比巴黎世家零售价为1600美元的贵重商品的价位合理很多,巴黎世家店面的位置比迪士尼的高三层。往下一看,你就会知道这些商品瞄准的客户是谁了。看看那些手拿闪光吸水杯,在大人腿脚间穿来穿去的宝贝孩子们吧。尽管二十多岁的人群会有些抱怨,但是巴尼斯百货的创意总监西蒙·杜南还是全力支持巴尼斯百货举办以家庭为主题的圣诞节促销。他对《每日野兽》说:“这年头,不论同性恋还是异性恋,好像每个人都有孩子。假日不是用来相互疏远和恶言相向的,而应该是一段其乐融融、多姿多彩的时光。”
一则广播公告通知大家走出商场,到户外见证当晚活动的盛大开幕。超模克莉丝朵·雷恩在当晚的首映式上激动地说,“我认为时尚就是要特立独行,独一无二,而迪士尼充满了独一无二的卡通形象,因此迪士尼和巴尼斯百货的合作是很有意义的。”
这是一个像奥兰多一样值得一去的地方,没有廉价的腰包和火鸡腿,取而代之的是普罗恩萨·施罗的包包和香烟。主办方为每一位来宾都准备了一对可以发光的米奇耳朵,其闪光由活动主办方以无线电控制。当晚会主持人莎拉·杰西卡·帕克、李以及迪士尼首席执行官鲍勃·伊格尔登台介绍这部短片时,所有的米奇耳朵同时亮起了蓝光。
当电影开播的时候,奇妙仙子手持魔杖拍打着翅膀飞了出来。俯瞰麦迪逊大街和城市的地平线,烟雾袅袅,光照融融,此时,米老鼠和它的朋友们身着巴尔曼和莲娜·丽姿等奢侈品牌的服装欢天喜地地出现在荧屏上,这场景仿佛迪士尼刚刚真的在附近投资建造了一个卫星主题公园。电影结束时,米妮身着朗雯定制礼服出现。只听一声爆响,光环在头顶散开,宣告着巴尼斯百货狂欢促销季正式开始。
