Eeeek. Cringeworthy and unintentionally ridiculous/awesome at the same time. Can this even be considered blackface? I know Constance is pretty fair-skinned, so she just could be really bronzed with just a black child, right? Right?
Miranda must be relieved that she walked for Prada because now her high fashion career is booming like hotcakes, whatever that means. Why hasn’t this girl been doing shoots like this before? It’s not quite the level that I want to see her at yet, but she’s definitely growing on me. She does look absolutely ethereal in a crown of thorns wearing Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, and those killer Christian Louboutin’s. I still see that they have to soften her makeup to make her less catalog. Who knew there was a price to being too cute?

Dare I even mention it? CoughMiuMiuCoughPradaCough. There isn’t an editorial that doesn’t get better from it, is all I’m saying. Maybe one day I won’t have to mention the products of Miuccia when she finally sends me a collar with nude ladies. One can dream, right? I mean, Ke$ha has hit songs, like, songs people listen to on the radio. Taylor Swift still sings about magical boys or something. When is it my turn, Ke$#@*!a? When is it my turn to basque in that glittery sun?!
I need to cool down and focus. I should be grateful I’m not just a performing dumpster, so lets focus on what’s in front of us. Add the likes of Givenchy mixed with beautiful leathers and finely tailored clothes on Magdalena, you have this perfectly style editorial. Magda is pulling distressed beauty all too perfectly.

Miranda Kerr’s career is in full drive now. The Australian beauty is branching from the VS Angels into high fashion, landing editorial and high fashion campaign gigs for Fall 2010/11. She’s featured in i-D, Elle, and Numéro Magazine. i-D started the Miranda trend with the nude eyebrows, and she looked alien and not herself. Elle brings back the sex kitten we all know. I love the Giambattista Valli python pumps, they’re absolutely to die for, but I wish her hair was a little less I just woke up and decided to put on some sexy clothes and a little more Kate Moss’s fray trend. Nothing too high fashion yet, so moving on to Numéro. They bring back the nude eyebrows that seem to be a growing trend, yet they aren’t cute on Miranda, yet I really like the direction they were going for in this shoot. The eyebrows are really something to downplay her sexpot traits. She’s almost too pretty and doesn’t have any terribly interesting features about her, so I really think the nude eyebrows work in her advantage. Her breasts are no big surprise, been there done that, but the styling is fairly decent with the bad little schoolgirl persona she plays. I think the lighting really helps this a lot. I think she’s almost there. I can’t wait until the Jil Sander campaign. It’s nice to see an Angel spread her wings, no pun intended.
I’ll give it to her that she’s pretty and hella’ sexy. I think after she became an Angel, a lot of what she does work-wise focuses on her being a sex-pot. I want to see that Doutzen doing more diverse editorials again, but hey, at least with Prada we got to see her out and about this past season. I guess once you do get the Angel spot and have a status, you don’t really need runways anymore. She still has high fashion appeal, so let’s see some more material. What woman wouldn’t kill for that body?! I still have love, but soon I’d like to see some edgier work. Get ’em you sexy thing.
