Image Innapropriate: Jours Apres Lunes
Someone is looking for free publicity and they’re about to get some from me! Jous Apres Lunes is going all out in their next campaign. They’re making little girls look like glamour queens lounging around in Lingerie. The line is targeted for 4-12 year olds and I get it, it’s French and the French are more embracing of sexuality than Americans. But this, this is just ridiculous. A pearled bra? Jackie O sunglasses with a suggestive hip swivel? Bouffants and suggestive glances? Yeah, this is not a good idea… unless the idea was to get attention and free publicity. In which case, Bravo Sophie and JAL. You better believe the blogs, news feeds and I wouldn’t want my 6 year old daughter parading around in a bra and panties much less lounging by the pool ala Paris Hilton meets Jackie O. Give me a break saying these girls are just playing dress-up with mommie’s make up in the images.
Ew. Ew. Ew.
Designer Sophie Morin defends, “The materials…have no vulgar connotation: they are totally opaque, nothing transparent. The style is inspired by children’s fashion, with spots, bows, etc.” Allow me to clear a few things up Sophie. This girl might be fully clothed and playing dress-up but to the rest of the world, it looks like she’s ready to lose her virginity in your underwear. I’m gonna guess that that would upset most folk.
Image trumps intention on this one. It’s the message of the image. The communication was missed on this one.
Time to get back in touch with reality. These little girls are pre-pubescent. Lingerie is meant to be functional, not permissively promiscuous.
Carine Roitfeld: Stirs V Up!
I’m so looking forward to Carine Roitfeld’s editorial reemergence with V’s September’s Heroes issue. Something tells me that it’s going to be fiercer and fresher than her French Vogue days. Congrats Carine for stepping out and stepping up!
In September’s issue of V, Carine Roitfeld plays with one of the fashion icons of today, Elizabeth Taylor. Here’s a preview:
Carine Roitfeld is the perfect example of what can happen when you relentlessly push forward. She had a lukewarm modeling career which she transformed into a slightly more successful writing career, which she then transformed into a styling, then contributor, and finally editor of one of the most powerful magazines in fashion, French Vogue. And here’s what I love about Carine; she left the magazine the same way she entered the styling realm; she put her stamp of approval on a 10 year old name Thylane, just like she had done with her daughter years ago for Vogue Bambini when she first started out.
It upset many and people are still debating the decision. But I do believe they’ve missed the point. Carine is having a go, a personal go at fashion. She’s not afraid to stir the pot, I just wished she would have put Thylane on the cover. Oh, the outrage.

Anna Dello Russo: Fearless
One of my favorite stylists to work with is Anna Dello Russo. Not only is she fiercely talented, she is fearless in her approach to fashion, she has a dynamic sense of humor and an intelligent approach to play.
Currently she is the creative consultant and editor at larger at Vogue Nippon. I worked with her often when she was at Italian Vogue and L’Uomo Vogue.
Watch this video. I promise you will shed tears of awesome.
The conversations we used to have about stylists shlepping bags across the Atlantic, sitting in economy because the clients didn’t see the value of having as stylist awake at a shoot, still bring a smile to my face. I laughed then and I continue to laugh now. Anna isn’t flying economy anymore and I’m pretty sure she’s got assistants to haul the clothing racks around the Globe.
Pay attention to Anna Dello Russo, she understands her game better than any editor out there today. If for no other reason than she doesn’t make business decisionsbased on economical fear. Quite the opposite, she is fearless and therefore unstoppable.
