"Rihanna was sat front-row at Comme des Garçons on Saturday afternoon. I’m uncertain why she was there – it isn’t something I would normally mention, but the incongruity of such a high-profile attendee at Comme des Garçons, hitherto the bastion of intellectualism, of substance over mere style, bears comment.
What did Rihanna make of it all? I didn’t ask because, frankly, I don’t care. Comme des Garçons isn’t about the flashy, slightly trashy circus of celebrity dressing. Hence, perhaps Rihanna’s presence was some form of artistic statement, a kind of installation or performance piece? I wondered if someone, somewhere was laughing at her. Or maybe, if even Comme counts the column inches.”
Alexander Fury hates celebrity fashion OOOOPS

Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.
(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

Marxists who are clueless about fashion (industry or otherwise), do you know who else was a Marxist? Miuccia Prada.
Some of the criticisms about the fashion industry/ fashion’s ethos are just so wrongheaded ,I just can’t rn.

Erin O’Connor wears the embroidered tulle ‘Madeleine’ dress as she arrives by horse and carriage to open the Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2005 show. Haunting models walked along a runway clouded in billowing mist alongside cobweb covered cherubs in the gloomy garden, which was an homage to Christian Dior’s childhood home as this show marked the 100th anniversary of his birth.
