I know, I know, I have models on the brain at the moment.
(They appear to have flooded the void in my brain that the World Cup has left behind.)
I am quite aware of the fact that the world does not revolve around women pouting and posing as if they really, really need to go to the ladies, or are very perturbed about something deeply superficial, as a career.*
My attention will wane.
After this post.
But I can just about contain my glee at the ever more frequent sightings of models of diverse size and now …gosh! Christmas! Older models are on a roll too!
This, from The Guardian: (See! They, too, occasionally give the inconsequential attention) “Next season’s Dolce & Gabbana advertising campaign, unveiled last week, stars Madonna (51). Hot label of the moment Celine – the campaign every model must have wanted this season – has chosen a veteran face from the 1990s superwaif era, Emma Balfour (40). Balenciaga stars Stella Tennant (39); Louis Vuitton, whose new collection was dubbed “And God Created Woman” by designer Marc Jacobs, featured Elle Macpherson (47) on the catwalk and stars Christy Turlington (41) in its latest print campaign. Glossy magazines at both ends of the style spectrum have chosen older models for their latest issues: Macpherson is on the cover of the new Tatler, while Dazed features Kristen McMenamy (46) as the newstand face of an issue dedicated to “iconic models”.
Does this mean that it could soon be permissible to get older and eat carbohydrates?
My cup of hot chocolate may just runneth over.
