Smashion: Fashion, Celebs and Teen Dreams

Fashion week is inspiring to everyone: celebrities…teenage girls…okay, that’s it.

Celebs come out in droves – Claire Danes, Sarah Jessica Parker, Liv Tyler – It’s a steady stream of who’s who at every show. After that, it’s all about the models. These tall, gangly beings have taken over the city. And millions of teenage girls are dying to be just like them. This interesting Jezebel article gives a unique perspective on the impossibility of breaking into the modeling industry through the eyes of a disinterested scout, and how dreams for teens are quickly (and expensively) broken.

Sometimes It’s hard being pretty. We should know.
