Comment on Thylane Loubry Blondeau: is a 10-year-old too young to model adult fashion? by Moni.

A loud and clear NO to pictures like these!
While I acknowledge the artistic execution, and I’m not generally averse to the idea of children modelling adult clothing by means of playing dress-up, the way this is done is just wrong on so many levels.
Not only is this appealing to pedophiles, children already have less and less “childhood” nowadays.
Even if this editorial was intended in an ironic way, there’s the danger that other magazines will take it seriously and also want to take pictures like these.

If I was in charge of said editorial, I would have shown several girls (not just one, and still distinguishable as girls), playing dress-up with each other. Not looking into the camera, not wearing professional make-up, and having their usual hairstyles. None of these children would have been in a suggestive pose or showing bare skin above the knee.

On the other hand: Why can’t anybody be “edgy and provocative” by showing women over 50 in such an editorial?

Crime of Fashion? Ripped knee jeans take over
Hmmm… http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa184/JainaCSolo/Geburtstag2013/S6301463_zps68ad4d15.jpg
I guess you can call me “Hipster” now as I own a pair just like these and already did so before it was cool… But mine weren’t ripped on purpose, the fabric just broke after years of use.
And I don’t wear these for anything else but casual occasions like rock concerts or motto parties.
Although I generally like the look, I would never buy jeans pre-ripped. You have to own the look by wearing them to death!

Fashion Crime Friday | Hands on your head
Ach, dang it, those “shredded shorts” look like they used to be exactly the kind of jeans I have been looking for for YEARS! Why did they have to do this to them??? GAAAAAHHH!

Style Trial | The Mullet Mini Skirt
Actually I think this goes in the right direction.
In fact I have often had the problem that skirts with an “even” hem turned out to be too short in the back, because -well- women do have booty. 🙂
So if this was just a little bit longer in the front, making it less “dangerous” and the length difference less pronounced, I’d buy it immediately.

Fashion Police at the MET Costume Institute Gala 2014
Yep, that’s the Death Star on Kirsten Dunst’s dress. 🙂 And I think it’s very fitting as the gala took place on May the 4th. (“May the Force…” 😉 )

Fashion Crime Friday | ‘Fat Pants’ and other crimes of fashion
To be honest I really like the dinosaur sweatshirt… but when I saw that it costs $79 and only comes in one (shapeless) size I decided that it’s not that pretty. 🙁

The rest: urghs!
