Smells Like Teen Spirit


DISCOVERED by IMG Models Senior VP Ivan Bart and actress Liv Tyler, Prada star Irina Kulikova is only 16, 5'11, Russian, gorgeous, and pure model jailbait. It's craaazy the ages that models hit their prime these days. Simply preposterous to the average person, but the norm in fashionland.

For example, 16-year-old Tanya D. replaced the ancient* 27-year-old Carmen Kass in Micheal Kors ads, selling belted shirt dresses to fifty year olds and Debra Messing.


And then there's Chanel Iman. Don't get me started on her. Cover of US Vogue at 15. At 15, I was in Algebra, sitting next to a boy who ferociously picked his nose every ten minutes. Sick.
And then there's Ali Micheal, Georgia Frost, Tallulah Morton etc. etc.
Lolita complex much?
On an olfactory note, I really love Marc Jacobs' new eau de parfum, Daisy. Great, light, floral feminine scent. I love the ads, starring who else, underaged commodity Irina K. and now, I WANT A HUGE GALLON SIZED BOTTLE. Strange.

*I will always hold great reverence to Carmen Kass though

That first girl is fairly pretty, and I do like Chanel Iman.

I think it's a bit scary how young these girls are really. They are actually only girls selling clothes for women far older then them. Give them time to grow up a bit, as the modelling industry does chew 'em up and spit them out.
Great joke there about debra messing!!

They're so young! If I was exposed to that kind of life at 15 I'd hate to think what I would have grown into!

I wonder why Carmen Kass still survives(I mean walking the runway). She must be intelligent...

roflmao about the michael kors comment.
the most ridiculous use of young models is when they promote anti-wrinkle, anti-age potions.
it shows a distinct lack of creativity on the part of designers, creative directors, modeling agencies, photographers, etc. that they exclusively use teenagers, relying on youth to count as beauty.

Alison said...

Holy snaps the industry likes em young huh? It was kinda wierd to find out that Coco Rocha was discovered at the same age I am now: 14! the first girl is pretty though, but couldn't they at least waited until she had developped a chest?

Juliet said...

I've always though carmen kass looks a bit like kahlen from ANTM

Meg said...

I think I prefer models with slightly mature face and less childish bodies. There's something a little bit creepy about the first.
