Kelly Cutrone: Fashion Promotes Thin Models To Please Consumers

By Margaret Eby / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Thursday, July 25, 2013, 3:11 PM Comment Patricia Burmicky In June, Domenico Ponti and Elena Volnova, inspired by the lack of luxury goods for canines, founded Dog Fashion Spa, a Manhattan-based line of upscale cosmetic products for tail-waggers and their choosy owners. Tired of that wet dog smell emanating from your pet? Wish that you and your Chihuahua could have matching manicures? Domenico Ponti and Elena Volnova have the solution: luxury cosmetics for the modern pup. Dog Fashion Spa ‘Maschio’ is one fo the fragrances Dog Fashion Spa offers for pets. In June, the entrepreneurial pair, inspired by the lack of luxury goods for canines, founded Dog Fashion Spa, a Manhattan-based line of upscale cosmetic products for tail-waggers and their choosy owners. “When you enter a house in 2013, there should be no excuse for dog smell,” Volnova said.

in Boston. The girls from Bettie Page Clothing stopped by today to talk fashion and ‘Talk Nerdy To Me,’ which happens August 1st & 2nd. Hubba… …Hubba. It wasn’t all fancy fashion and lovely ladies this morning, though. We had some fancy fish in studio, too.

Those girls in the white T-shirts and underwear, next to Calvin Klein [and all the other fashion ads]. As a consumer, it doesn’t make me want to buy Dove. I’m all dresses for prom for the real look, but as a consumer it doesn’t make me want to buy clothes.” Sound controversial? Well, we know quite a few people who would disagree with Cutrone’s statement — namely, plus-size lingerie store owner Chrystal Bougon. In a recent interview, she told us that the demand for larger sizes is becoming increasingly lucrative , claiming retailers were “missing the boat” by not captializing on the “untapped” plus-size market.

Fashion industry promotes thinness because it’s what YOU want, says fashion PR

This is work technically. At some point I do need to have more of a work life balance. I still have one more year at uni studying fashion history and theory at Central St Martins, its fascinating. How do you fit it all in? Thats incredible! With difficulty and caffeine! What advice would you give to someone who wanted to start a blog or take their own blog to the next level? Persevere. For the first six months I had two followers, my mum and my best friend.

As a consumer, it doesn’t make me want to buy Dove. I’m all for the real look, but as a consumer it doesn’t make me want to buy clothes.” But it might be that Kelly just likes to tell herself this as revelations and horror stories that surround models and their body image stack up. Her ‘advice’ is particularly unhelpful as it aids the industry to continue without essential changes western society needs. Catwalk model Kira Dikhtyar made headlines after revealing cocaine and cotton balls were on the menu for many models trying to keep their weight down, Eddie Murphy’s daughter Bria added to the claims , saying she had seen models turn to drugs and eating disorders and last year Topshop dropped a photo of a ‘too-skinny’ model . Crystal Renn made headlines as a plus size model [REX] And whatever Kelly says, the tide has been turning recently. From Crystal Renn’s mainstream championing of plus-size (read: normal) women in high profile campaigns, to Vogue’s worldwide editors pledging not to use ultra thin and underage models in their shoots, it seems the industry is slowly cottoning on to the fact that actually, we’d rather see women represented naturally, without airbrushing and after having a proper lunch.
