I Wish - Angelina Jolie´s Bags

By being a movie star and one half of a perfect couple (with Brad Pitt),  what she wears is always notable. She doesn’t always carry handbags (usually because she’s also carrying children), but when she does, she’s faithful to Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent.

Oh... and you do not need to pay much attention to realize that Angelina Jolie likes large bags.

I Wish - An Ode to the Extreme Thinness

Picture credit: Twitter/Michael Rudoy

You are looking at a mannequin with protruding ribs, from a "La Perla" store in NYC. The controversy erupted on Twitter, with people saying "This is just irresponsible and harmful. Too many young girls already have low self esteem and body image issues.’"

La Perla replied by saying "We are in the process of redesigning all La Perla stores with a new concept image and the mannequins that are currently displayed in our US stores will no longer be used. We appreciate and value everyone's comments, thank you for bringing this to our attention." Well, I wonder if this was a marketing maneuver, to have everybodytalking...

Anyway, I ask myself: if beauty comes in all sizes, why does fashion does odes around skinny (in the old days it was about plump girls...)? Why are no skinny models not called just models, but plus-size models?
