Such the Innovators, Those Levi’s Folk

Leandra Medine | March 31, 2011
 ...The best modeling gig ever? Me thinks yes.
Last night called for one of the more exciting and innovative Press Previews of this fall season and so I declared, the folks at Levi’s know how to throw a party.
Upon arrival at the preview space a desk dedicated to “The Bumbys,” a man-woman duo masked in sunglasses and bandannas over their noses and mouths, sat with typewriters, observing the crowd walking in while they typed, typed, typed away. Initially, I intended to overlook the spectacle and get straight to the Kanon but shortly thereafter I learned they were writing judgments and ranking our respective aesthetics on a scale from 1-10. So I stopped in my tracks and when came time for my type-write of death, Ms. Bumby declared “your sweater looks cheap to make but like it probably cost a fortune.” 
She was wrong. $23.99 at Necessary Clothing.
jacket: Tibi, sweater: Necessary Clothing, pants + shoes: Rag & Bone, handbag: Be & D
…This is just a fragmented bit of a fanicer, funnier, drunker larger recap. I suggest you read it in full here.

    Oh the irony, I love that…I wonder what they would say about what I'm wearing! I love how they tried to be biting, but failed…XD

    I need one of those masked judges-that-look-like-robbers at school everyday to judge everyone.

    I'm reading a book called 'The beauty industry: Gender, Culture, Pleasure' and I've just found a quote that reminded me of you:

    "This shift was described by one advertising executive in her study as moving from ‘raw sex’(physical appeal to men and achieved for the male gaze) to ‘ego-sense’. Ego-sense views the
    woman as a subject who engages in beauty routines in order to gain pleasure for herself."
