Ok, first of all, I’m bored to death of seeing photos of models and celebrities (and daughters of famous people, as it is in this case) while they are nearly naked and pregnant. It is boring, and one of those lame trends that has been DONE TO DEATH. Plus this one is even more nausea-inducing, because it is Carine Roitfeld styling her own pregnant daughter for the cover of a magazine. Her obsession and constant promotion of her kids is pathetic. I’d love to hear about one thing that either Julia, or Carine’s son Vladimir, accomplish on their own, without the help of their mother. She is the ultimate definition of a helicopter parent.
And while we are on the subject of feeling nauseated, here’s how Julia defended the image: “I loved that my mum dressed me sexy like that.” Am I the only person who thinks that ANY situation where your Mom dresses you up “sexy” is effed up? I used to really respect Carine Roitfeld, but lately, she seems to have become predictable and boring. I am OVER HER.
p.s. This is one of eight covers for this particular issue of i-D. What is up with magazines all needing to do tons of versions of covers for each issue? Can’t they just do ONE great cover, instead of (in this case) eight shitty ones?
p.p.s. Remember those creepy photos of Carine and her son for the Barney’s campaign? Ewww….
