Vogue Paris Sexist Barbie Fashion Editorial

In this Day and Age of gender equality, women empowerment where women wear suits and masculine apparel and men do the opposite, it's shocking or perhaps not that old fashion stalwarts such as Vogue magazine - in this case Vogue Paris would launch a fashion editorial depicting women in demeaning stereotypes such as a pink-loving, personality-lacking, materialistic Barbie mannequin doll who's mostly obsessed with shopping and looking like a typical Hollywood/ Kim Kardashian airhead stereotype.
Of course some European countries like France and Italy still do little for female empowerment and gender equality just like many backward countries in Asia where an archaic non-relevant culture and religion play a big role in the daily lives of whichever regressive designer brand owner and fashion editorial director.
Shot by Italian fashion photographer Giampaolo Sgura for Vogue Paris's December/ January 2015 issue, the editorial features supermodels Magdalena Frackowiak and Elizabeth Erm as lifeless dolls for otherwise ignorant or conservative traditional brands such as Gucci, Armani, Fendi, Dolce and Gabbana and Ralph Lauren who mainly cater for the filthy rich top 1% billionaires of the world who are mostly elderly folks with mostly bland or bad sense of style.
It may seem like an innocently "cute" idea at first but for the bigwigs at major fashion and publishing houses to approve such an editorial is obviously a real testament to how detached these so-called fashion leaders are to the real, modern world.
Magdalena in Gucci.
Really boring Emporio Armani clothing.
Life in black and white. Trendy sportswear? We think not. Adidas and Nike clearly do better in this arena.
Old school glamour or just another redundant polka-dot granny style? Magdalena tries to look old and stuffy in Dolce and Gabbana.
Would you pay thousands for a generic design? Elizabeth Erm is in Dior but looks like she's in a tropical print playsuit widely available from any high street store like Zara or Australian label.
Louis Vuitton head-to-toe pink suit resembles Gucci's Fall Winter 2014 collection. Waitaminit, you don't buy Louis Vuitton to look different.
If the clothings look boring, jazz it up in a flashy presentation. Totally impractical suit, neither dressy nor sexy. Again, Ralph Lauren enforces a negative stereotype of women in an air stewardess role - a job which requires little to no qualifications besides looking good; just perfect for women.
Saint Laurent thinks its Edgy? We think not. These are really ugly, mis-matched clothings, even if it's for butches/ lesbians.
Love the colours but Elizabeth Erm looks like she's wearing a Valentino coat that's made out of a mouldy old Turkish carpet. Nothing magical about it.
Looking back at decades what life was decades ago, we prefer the present. We share the same sentiments for this dated Mary Poppins Chanel look.
