Glossed Over takes a look at the March Bazaar. There’s a self-serving service piece that explains why luxury goods cost so much:
…the article gets progressively more grating, predictably returning to the justification of the positively vulgar price tags of luxury goods. What else can be expected from people whose livelihoods are dependent on the public buying costly stuff they don’t need?
Bazaar also has the most embarrassing celebrity fashion spread in months–Francis Bean Cobain, all puppy fat and potty mouth, posing uncomfortably as characters from her favorite musicals. She’s fifteen, and you know as well as we do, it’s no good asking where her mother, Courtney Love, is or what she was thinking. The shots are hardly photographer Jeff Reidel’s best work, and she looks both pretty and mortified. Proud mama’s remarks:
She’s a gay man trapped in a woman’s body, like me.
