jalouse magazine with their "caricatures" story.
In my magazine-flicking list of priorities, accessories come just after the beauty section. I yawn upon reading about the top 10 facemasks on the market or that big eyebrows are back (oh, are they? well, mine look like the B List version of Ali Michael's all year round!..) and promptly see what else can amuse me. The accessories section generally fairs slightly better, and depending on the magazine, I'm always vaguely interested to see how this slightly dull realm has been jazzed up thanks to it's presentation.
Teen Vogue is a bit of a master at this; they have the ability to make you forget the $11,000 price tag of a single earring or a deliciously glossy heel by taking each accessory on a journey through Paris, or a similarly novel adventure. It's evidence that Accessories Director Taylor Tomasi is far more than show season candy.
Jalouse Magazine has taken a leaf out of the "humorous impersonation" book which has been a template used by a few magazines including Harpers for that Simpsons editorial back in 2006 and also the editorial (the magazine slips my mind..) that saw young children doing their best impressions of fashion designers as donatella, karl and co.
This time it is Vanessa Paradis, identified by her gap teeth wearing a head to toe pattern identical to that worn in her Miu Miu adverts as well as Marc Jacobs who is clutching a self help book cheekily titled "How to turn your addiction to presciption drugs".
The characters which have been fashioned out of balloons in popping bright colours are as enviable as they are cool.. just look at the overflowing piles of accessories carefully concealed within their forms. Well well,
Jalouse, we salute you!
