Marc Jacobs Finds the Model Of His Dreams

December 21, 2010

Models don’t look like everyday women:  even those pesky breasts gets in the way of being walking coat hangers.  Marc Jacobs, not satisfied with merely using women who look like adolescent boys, is now using the model of the industry’s dreams – an adolescent boy who looks like the standard of the perfect woman model.   New York Daily News has already begun the terrible portmanteaus to describe Andrej Pejic, a 19 year old Serbian-Australian model, who wears his blond hair long and his lips pouty.  Perhaps Jacobs was inspired after being featured in the insipid New York Times article on 2010 being the year of the transsexual (funny, my calendar reads it was the year of the tiger).   For the record, no one is “going trans” here, it’s just good old-fashioned ‘genderbending’ and androgyny that cycles around repeatedly in fashion.  Jacobs probably wanted to up his edgy after getting Michelle Obama’s seal of approval on his fall collection.

    Marc Jacobs has been getting those “packages” again, it seems. Interestingly enough – or not – was anyone ever under the impression he was ever edgy in the first place?

    So the people going gaga over this have never been to a goth club? Cause there’s an Andrej in every one.

    He kind of looks like Sebastian Bach from Skid Row. Wonder what he’s up to these days.

    Sebastian Bach starred in a musical a few years ago (Jekyll & Hyde? I can’t quite bear to google him), and all I could think about was how he was coping on Broadway after making so many fag jokes in the 80s. He probably had pinkeye the whole run from make-up sabotaging.

    Ha! Oh man, the years have not been kind to Sebastian Bach. I googled him (couldn’t resist). Wow. Unlike Axl Rose who is an eccentric has been, Bach is just a has been.

    It took me a moment to un-portmanteau-ize “femiman.” At first I thought it was an obtuse reference to Iman being masculine.

      “femiman” was clearly not run through market research, it’s too difficult to say!
