Elle x Valentino x Moi x Studs x Vaginas

Leandra Medine | April 13, 2011

In partnership with Elle and Valentino.

Not many vaginas here per se but the title is still relevant as Valentino is involved and you know that means couture labias.

Some background: Susie Lau of Style Bubble, Catherine Kallon of Red Carpet Fashion Awards and myself teamed up with Valentino and Elle to create this spring’s edition of Elle’s ezine. There is video content included which is fun to watch if you are into sweet handbags and cool runway clothes. There are also independent outtakes from my respective footage and I speculate this is because a. I am officially a parody of myself and evidently, everybody knows it, b. the Elle corresspondent wished me a long life of no men and c. I spoke about none other than dun dun da da doo doo VAGINAS! 

Watch it here. (…Are you back? The pages are interactive. Mine is the third. Click on that pesky little red arrow.)

    looks like a beautiful collaboration.

    thank you, from a new wave feminist and a fashionista, for insisting upon thrusting vaginas and labias into the public's cultural consciousness. nice affirmation of our lovely folded lady parts!

    well beige+animal+studs. at least you can combine all the little accessories, and you can go flat or you can go bananas. what i love best: fashion and fun, you combine it all and you don't take everything too serious. above all that, your vision is out of this world

    I love the Valentino leopard bags and studded shoes. I love it when you said in your interview that leopard print is the man repeller color 🙂 Awesome.

    Peace, Katricia.
