Top Models as Prostitutes

Heyaaaa ❤

Fashion loves anything that straddles the very fine line between what is provocative and what is tasteless, and of course that happens to include the romanticising the blackened underbelly of society.

If you do not believe me, please consider the “heroin chic” phenomenon of the mid-nineties or consider the unsettling existence of a wikiHow article called “How to be Heroin Chic”. So, I guess that fashion had no other option than to think “What’s gritty and ‘underground’ that we can glamourize with models and fancy clothes? Hmmm…. prostitution would be puuuuuurfect!”

Louis Vuitton’s latest short film, in collaboration with Katie Grand of Love magazine features some of the most recent TOP catwalkers Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Saskia de Braw, Isabeli Fontana, Lily McMenamy, Georgia Jagger and Magdelena Frackowiak as Parisian reines de la nuit drifting about the city streets in the brand’s romantic lingerie inspired Fall ’13 collection. Their path eventually elads to the actual show, where they take the runway in the same clothing.

I don’t know what they are trying to say with this vague storyline – clearly they are trying to say something – but the video is pretty, and the music is nice, and hey, prostitutes!

It’s not too explicit, but there are a few boobs, a few arses, so be wary should you work at a church, or something.

MODEL TAKEOVER : Who’s Replacing 90s Supers Now?

Hiya Poutlings

Cindy, Kate, Naomi, Linda, Christy… Your days were high and mighty, but now these new skinny-minnies are coming into take your place.

Who are the new super models now?

Cindy Crawford and Karlie Kloss

Beauty makes the spot on their otherwise state clean complexions. Neither Cindy nor Karlie can take a bad shot.  They both give collarbone for days, and a hunch that could make anyone feel straight.

Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn

They’re both giving tribal realness, with cheekbones that say, “I’m  better than you.” We’re waiting for Jourdan’s hissy-fit but for the time being she’s fitting into Naomi’s early super shoes, fiercy.

Kate Moss and Lara Stone

In the 90s, Kate brought it to Calvin Klein, along with heroin chic and a penchent for toplessness. Now Lara brings a bustier approach to CK with that same dainty gauntness about her face.

Linda Evangelista and Daria Webowy

These Canadian chameleons have both taken the cover of Vogue in Marilyn Monroe-esque pin curls. Linda may be poutier, but they’re equally versatile!
