You Can't Dodge Dakota These Days.


The March Elle thudded on my desk yesterday, all 540 pages of it. Leafing through the ads...anorexic models, anorexic models in the future delivering a plastic baby (oh D&G, you pioneers) anorexic model riding in a hot air balloon (?), anorexic models pretending they're lesbians, Shalom Harlow's face retouched to a shiny sheen, Dakota Fanning...Dakota Fanning? Yes, the Sundance It Girl (emphasis on "Girl") looking like, well, looking like she's about to be raped in a Marc Jacobs ad (sweeeet jacket Marc). This appears to be some scary marketing synergy. Did the producers of Hounddog throw you a bone Marc, or vice versa?
previously in scary fashion ads:
1. Scary Ellis.
2. DEAD is the new BLACK.
3. Jimmy Choo. Shoes to die for.
4. Jigga gets all 'A River Runs Through It' on us.
5. Fendi No. 5.
also on gawker: Fashion Ads. EDGY.

Fanning is cute and all, but is she the only 10 year old girl capable of acting? It seems when films cast for actors, the only character to play a younger sister has to be Fanning because nobody else can do it.

Now that I threw out my opinion on Fanning I will say this Marc Jacob stuff is ridiculous. Now fashion designers are attracting Pedophiles?

Is she an orphan? Is she reared by Hilary Duff's foster parents? Who is in charge of her? Does that person have $$ sewn onto his/her eyes?

10 years old! The sick freak holly-adver-fash-world assault on innocence continues.

You'd think an anorexic issue would only be about 15 or 20 pages too.

She's 12, morons. You really need to do your homework. And they're only pictures, I don't see Dakota posing nude or provocatively. Of course, if you're getting aroused looking a 12 year-old girl, perhaps that's where the real problem resides...

To paraphrase Vincent Bugliosi, I can see the day when she wakes up screaming, and just never stops.

Of course, I'd still do her.

Hmmm, think Otto has her address, phone number and a restraining order in his wallet?
