Sad. True.

"Why does Bebe always make their models look like rape victims?"
~My friend Scott

Very true. Very sad.

constant drama said...

Whoa!! Spot on.

Princess Poochie said...

Totally agree -


laila said...

Holy shit he's right!

Is it wrong that I still love that gold dress?

Nik said...

That first picture looks like she's saying, "He's stolen my virtue."

I don't know if you're as dedicated an SVU-watcher as I am, but if you are, the following will make sense to you- somewhere in TV-Land Detective Stabler of the Incredibly Enormous Head is going all "DON'T DEMEAN VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ABUSE" and then losing his temper and beating up sixteen people with absolutely no repercussions.
The one in the cage really does have a rape-victim-y (sorry, I know you hate the Luck-y dash-y thing...let nobody say I am not a faithful reader of Daddy Likey back-posts) air about her.

Good point. There are whole seminars on this subject...I had to sit through one...thanks university studies...

Naomi Wolf explains it well

Wow, never noticed before, how true.

Haven't a clue what Bebe is...and judging from these ads... I don't think I want to!

Hannah Cheeto said...

So true! I never really noticed that before!

Susie, bebe is a company that sells rather cheap-looking clothes for far more than they're worth and is infamous for their little tank tops and velour pants which say "bebe" in rhinestones across the chest/butt. But lately they've been courting the fashion crowd with more fashion-forward clothes and these ads, which are in a lot of (American) fashion magazines.

I don't know this brand very well but i don't know how the campaign would make anyone want their clothes.

I want to give them a hug, not steal their clothes.

the iron chic said...

Is that Lohan in the gold dress?
That cage one is offensive.
I will only tolerate Vanessa Paradis in a birdcage.

Lady Language said...

OMG - I was just thinking this same thing the other day...sad isn't it?

ro said...

Ewww...I would boycott them, but I think I am totally too fat for any of their clothes because I am a (GASP!) size 12.


Iheartfashion said...

I've always thought the girls in American Apparel ads looked like victims of sex trafficking too...

la femme said...

BANG on. I cannot stand bebe ads.

MilesWestwood said...

Posted about Scott's musings. I'm not sure they have the rape thing fully functioning. Interesting nevertheless.

I didn't mention it in my post but it's the same issue as the heroin chic look, everyone loves things messed up.

And iheartfashion, you are on the money.

Keep up the good work.
